Happy birthday to x_bluerose_x, avivasedai, and my totally awesome chosen-family sister gwynraven!

Spent much of my workday yesterday thinking "I NEED A NAP". Went home. Napped. That was yesterday, all of it. Just - run ragged from a busy Tuesday following a sedentary glutened Monday.

What I am having these days is a struggle regarding what I feel like I should be capable of doing. I feel so much better painwise and energywise that my body keeps trying to go back to its factory settings - and I am not, in fact, All Better. I'm a lot better, which fools my subconscious. But then I pay for it.

So I need to find a way to figure out exactly how much I can handle, against the instinct of my subconscious Supergirl mind going "Oh yeah, we got this!"

Remember the auctions!

Also remember that for $10, you can insert an item into Elayna's story; for $25, a character; for $50, a major plot twist. She got five things last night from lawbabeak to work in, and she was delighted!

I need to total up how much money we have and how much we need. It's just that "how much we need" is dependent on when we get our Publisher's Weekly checks and state tax return. I am twitchy about not knowing this, when the due date is next Saturday.

Besides the baby blanket - anything else knitted-by-me you'd like to see up for auction? I'm not offering fiction right now because I'm still behind on that; I don't need my writerbrain for knitting, so I know I can do that every day on the bus.

Daily Science
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has discovered something odd about a distant planet -- it lacks methane, an ingredient common to many of the planets in our solar system.

Work - then free They Might Be Giants concert at the Greenway. TMBG goes on at 1:30, so we should get there just in time. I'm bringing Elayna and two of her friends. Home with the kids for vacation week? Join us!

No evening plans, which is good, because I have a busy weekend and need another home night. *nod*

Appropos of nothing, a coworker recently told me her DIL was going on a “glutton free” diet, I nearly died trying not to laugh.
22nd-Apr-2010 08:53 pm (UTC)
I myself try to refrain from eating gluttons!
22nd-Apr-2010 12:45 pm (UTC)
I knew that sounded familiar

Or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM

Which is still one of my favorites of that type.

If you made another rainbow colored shawl like the one you did last year, I would bid on it or buy it outright. I'm always freezing sitting at my desk all day. And my office needs more color.
22nd-Apr-2010 01:10 pm (UTC)
I can do that. It's about a two-week project at max....
22nd-Apr-2010 02:00 pm (UTC)
Let me know if you want to auction it or if $50 PLUS cost of yarn and shipping would get it outright. I'm fine either way.
22nd-Apr-2010 08:53 pm (UTC)
That would do it. :)
23rd-Apr-2010 12:21 pm (UTC)
Great. Just let me know how much the yarn and shipping is and I'll paypal you the total (plus extra to cover the fact that it is a credit card transaction).
23rd-Apr-2010 01:07 pm (UTC)
I realized on the bus this morning: I've done multiple rainbowy things! Do you mean the rectangular sari silk wrap or the triangular stripey shawl?
23rd-Apr-2010 06:33 pm (UTC)
The rectangular sari silk wrap please.
25th-Apr-2010 09:40 pm (UTC)
Okay! yarn is $8/ball, wrap takes 4 balls; shipping on getting the wrap to you would be really minimal.

Hmm, that daily science link is very interesting to me. See, one of the hypothetical alternatives to carbon dioxide in photosynthesis is methane... so an apparent lack of [or at least below detectable levels] methane in that planets atmosphere, could be an indication of life.

We have The Curse of Fatal Death on VHS -- Rowan Atkinson remains my favorite doctor. It was done for a very good cause, too. Red Nose Day is pretty awesome.

pick one from here to put up on auction :) Let me know which one, though, so I can pull it off the active listing :)
22nd-Apr-2010 08:54 pm (UTC)
Oooh. Cranes?
23rd-Apr-2010 04:07 am (UTC)
Awesome - cranes is hereby dedicated to explo auction
22nd-Apr-2010 03:14 pm (UTC) - That is indeed awesome
Except my cow orkers are now looking at me oddly... again.

Did you get to TMBG? I looked for you but didn't find you.
22nd-Apr-2010 08:54 pm (UTC)
We did! We were next to the sound booth tent.

I was near the front (before the band told everyone to jump over the barrier, at least) and slightly to the left. I bought the three "for kids" DVDs and CDs and will send them to my nephew & nieces after listening to them.

I have to say, I got a ridiculous amount of "squee" out of seeing my suggestion in print. Perhaps I am easily joyed. Perhaps it is... *dramatic music* Elayna!
22nd-Apr-2010 11:37 pm (UTC)
Elayna rocks!
