Elayna - Oct08
Happy birthday to my favorite person in the world, my epic awesome daughter!

Breathing easier, but still weak and shaky. And I have to walk to work in this weather. Joy. At least my parents are picking me up.

Has been very trying.

...I am having enough overflow here that I am concerned that I may be an E. Need a fitting at Intimacy, really.

* Sale time at Night Shade books! (Also, this'd be a good time to subscribe to Electric Velocipede, while you're there; I'm in the next issue, and one later this year as well.)
* What the hell you guys. No.
* Sady Doyle dissects the new Lady Gaga video.
* You can now watch all of Cosmos on Hulu.

Daily Science
Jeannine Han, who is in the second year of her master's program in textiles and fashion design at the Swedish School of Textiles in Boras, Sweden, working together with technician Dan Riley, has developed clothing that plays music when touched.

Work, lunch with parents. This afternoon, probably supervising the overhaul of Elayna's room. Tonight, dinner at Not Your Average Joe's. Low-key. Which is good, because I have evening stuff the rest of the week.

Happy Birthday Elayna!

Yay! Happy birthday Elayna!

Happy birthday to Elayna!

What the hell you guys. No.

"The hell" and "no" are coming from here, too. "We'll put you in a hostile environment, but because you two are together you can THINK about how hostile it is!" I feel bad for those kids.

But good things happen, too, like Elayna. I hope you all celebrate well.

Well that's depressing... Nightshade Books' website has no submission guidelines on its site that I can find, which implies that one must be special to them in order to learn about what's wanted, when, and on what topic. *Sigh...*

Ah well, it's not like I write fast enough for open submissions anyway...

They're mostly novels, not anthologies; the individual editors post the submission guidelines for their anthologies.

Electric Velocipe's guidelines are here.

Happy Birthday Elayna! 15 is just. not. right.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday Elayna!!

(And that article about the judge forcing those two girls to spend time with their fathers... ;adlgkahkldghlahg. RAGE!)

Happy birthday, Elayna!

Happy birthday Elayna!

I can't believe she's fifteen! I remember you talking about her on the Bordertown BBS, when she was a wee infant...
15th-Mar-2010 02:18 pm (UTC)
I would read the BBS and pump breastmilk. **laugh**
15th-Mar-2010 02:23 pm (UTC)
You never mentioned that, back then. *giggle*

Happy BD, Elayna! Thou rockest.

I have a few friends who just got fittings and bras at Intimacy and are extremely happy with the results. Expensive bras, but apparently guaranteed and repaired for just about ever. I should go get a fitting myself.

Happy birthday, Elayna!

That's... a HUGE WTF, Oh HELL no.

Kids are NOT supposed to be expected to protect themselves or each other from sexual abuse.

Happy birthday to Elayna!

And what on Earth for that article with the judge's ruling?!?! That is just wrong.
"The Family Court found the father had invited one of the girls into his bed, and had "demonstrated affection toward her in a way that was, in all the circumstances, inappropriate for a child of that age"."

So...the judge is extremely moronic. This is insufferable!

As for the article analyzing Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video, I was so disappointed when I saw it a few days ago! An awesome 5-ish minute song turned into a 9 minute montrosity! GAH! I love Sady Doyle's snarky remarks!

The bra part could be worse! I am a 42 J J! :-)

Where's Intimacy? I hate bra shopping and will only do so with a fitter involved.
