Happy early birthday to dark_blade, faelad, jaded_dreamer, kylakae, and theicequeen, who advance a year over the weekend!

Hello to new reader xhollydayx!

Bouncing back from my tired/itchy.

I... am spending an awful lot of time in priestess mode this week. Which is fine. I like being useful. But it's a mental shift.

BPAL Question
For people who actually visit the forum - anyone know when Yules/Anniversaries come down? I need to test my decants and see if I Need anything other than Ded Moroz!

Daily Science
Five new exoplanets!

Friday Memeage!
Wearing: Black sparkly shirt, jeans, dark blue cowlneck sweater.
Reading: Blood Groove - Alex Bledsoe. Just finished Iorich by Steven Brust, wherein, Vlad Taltos goes to a yarn store, no I am not kidding, and I am still geeking out.
Writing: Zero this week. :( Too tired Wednesday, thanks to possible gluten reaction, and I sent yesterday afternoon having an important conversation devolving into a much-needed silly conversation. I will get better. I just need to find my balance.
Knitting: Still the baby blanket, and that will be so for a bit. This is a nice easy knit, a good project to jump on after ZOMG lace shawl.
Planning: Today is work, then hanging out with mangosteen. Tomorrow I may hit a small knitting group. Sunday I'm meeting with my BARCC blog team to do actual concrete planning. Otherwise I'm leaving the weekend unplanned; I need flexible chill time. Arisia madness begins in just a few days.

I dimly recall they come down next week, but it should say on the Limited Editions page.

Reading: Another Warhammer 40k novel.
Writing: The context for my Walking The Equator Dream animal cards.
Wearing: T-shirt, pants - time to turn in soon.
Planning: To get my health back on track. Weekend time to write and to rest.

Yeah Beth just said when the Lupercalias go up, but she hasn't said when that will be.

This Yule update was ridiculous! I usually don't like winter perfumes and these are the ones that I fell for:

* Snowball Fracas (looks at her three bottles and grins sheepishly): Now this is the most perfect dirt scent ever!
* In Winter In My Room
* Season of Ghosts
* Evening Cicadas and Red Peppers
*The First, Soft Snow
* Yule Cat
* Diable En Boite
* Pink Snowballs
* Snow White is always a favorite

Was a little disappointed with On Darkness 09 though. I loved 08, but 09 goes all eggy and weird on me :(
WTF, Lab? Usually I all but ignore your Yules!

Oddly enough, I thought I'd love Ded Moroz but it goes all weird and bitter on me :(.

Wearing: Cow pajamas over navy-blue long johns with my CAT-brand thick socks. In other words, creature comfort clothing to comfort me after yesterday's meltdown.

Reading: GRACELING by Kristin Cashore. So far, entertainingly written and nicely distracting from yesterday's meltdown.

Writing: HTML code for the Spica page, copy for the sell sheets, and copious e-mails to people to explain yesterday's meltdown.

Knitting: Need to pick this up again, to soothe my nerves after yesterday's meltdown.

Planning: MY REVENGE! And how to pick myself, dust myself off, and start all over again, as the song goes, after yesterday's meltdown.

Thanks for providing the link to the "Symphony of Science". I've been really enjoying the downloads.
9th-Jan-2010 02:05 pm (UTC) - It's a small small world...
Believe it or not, I actually met mangosteen a couple of years ago at a friend's party. It's amazing how the world works some time... we have a real life connection in addition to our virtual one.

erf? Have I gotten boring? :(

I may suck at commenting, but I'm still here... unless you don't want me here for some reason. i'll even memeage.

wearing: too large for me black suede coat, perfect blue jeans, black shirt that fits perfectly, scarf
reading: comics, old EGM mags to decide on games, Ottoline Goes to School, And Another Thing...
Writing: Well, not this, but tons and tons of photo taking.
Knitting: I'm stitching and post processing.. it's like knitting.
Planning: How to finish compiling a full catalog/portfolio to finally get a show.
