Hello to new readers guiltyred and spirited_grace!
Barometric pressure again. Not as bad as Monday, at least.
Buy fudge, benefit BARCC!
Yay! The best fudge I've ever had has teamed up with BARCC! Buy fudge, and part of your purchase goes to BARCC. <3 In case you're wondering what I want for Valentine's Day? This would be it. Several of their fudges are gluten-free!
Please help unload truck!
Sunday, Watertown, 71 bus line. Details in previous posts. Will give you address tomorrow ad time when fiddle_dragon knows it.
Have not been subtle lately.
Poor Spirit Rover!
XKCD made me tear up today. I do not know why I have such an attachment to the Spirit Rover. I anthropomorphize like whoa.
C. elegans, a tiny worm about a millimeter long, doesn’t have much of a brain, but it has a nervous system — one that comprises 302 nerve cells, or neurons, to be exact. In the 1970s, a team of researchers at Cambridge University decided to create a complete “wiring diagram” of how each of those neurons are connected to one another. Such wiring diagrams have recently been christened “connectomes,” drawing on their similarity to the genome, the total DNA sequence of an organism. The C. elegans connectome, reported in 1986, took more than a dozen years of tedious labor to find.
Wearing: Jeans, black V-neck long-sleeved tee, "bisected" necklace by sihaya09, dark blue cowlneck sweater.
Reading: Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea, by Charles Seife, and Night Watch, by Sergei Lukyanenko.
Writing: Oh dammit writerbrain is insisting on a new shiny. It is called "The Stars at Mortal Wars". I also plan to take some time to finish "Maxfield Parrish Blues" this weekend, and I suspect I'll get quite a bit done on Jessa's story. And must read over "Spaces Between" to make sure it's as submittable as I think it is.
Knitting: Officially 2/3 of the way through the blanket, instead of just almost. I like it! It goes fast, and the pattern's easy to memorize!
Planning: My Wonder Twin is coming up today and staying through Sunday morning, so we are spending the weekend together. Is why I'm pretty sure I'm going to get writing done, because I know he has to. And Sunday I'll be truck-unloading.
