Happy birthday to onezumi and lifecollage!
Hello to new readers gunshotbeauty and limiinal!
Unsurprisingly, ouch + tired. Because, y'know, 5K.
Walk for Change
Deserves a full writeup later but it was AWESOME.
Here's the thing. I have been so swamped, and I kept forgetting to check on the Explo due date.
And it's May 1.
So I have to come up with $4,575.00 by May 1.
$600 of that is a grant that hasn't yet been applied; e-mailed about that this morning. I should be able to get $2,000 from the grandparents. So essentially that's $2,000 we have to raise in two weeks.
In past years, some of you have offered items to auction or donate; I'm not going to outright e-mail people and solicit that, but if you want to, we'd love the help.
Next week is Elayna's April break, and that's when we'll be doing the annual Gojirawitz Girls Wind Tunnel Dreams crowdfunded fiction. This year we're taking a reader suggestion and doing one long story - wherein you tell us what to do! Your donation entitles you to a say. Depending on the amount of the donation, you get to insert items (antique doorknocker!), people (your mom!), plot twists (evil twin!), et cetera. Yes, this has the potential to get very silly very quickly.
We'll be deciding on which donation levels get you which amount of input this afternoon, and Elayna will be writing up her "this is why Explo is so important to me" post.

* So the guy at Sound Bites is assaulting people now. Unsurprised. He's always been a dick. Also the food is terrible.

Using data from the Hinode spacecraft, a team of researchers from University College London (UCL) have revealed an immense magnetic structure that erupted to produce a dramatic solar eruption in late 2007.
Work, home, Explo fundraising planning. Hopefully writing time please please please. BARCC peer-supervision meeting tonight, then getting photographed with my co-bloggers.
