I don't know why that in particular is coming up a lot lately offline, but it is. Ask swashbucklr about the appalled expression and full-body shudder when I licked the test strip at the Museum of Science! Actually, lightcastle and s00j were there too...
feste_sylvain theorizes that this is why I cannot abide anything citrus; the citric acid just sets me right to gagging. Apparently this is a factor with gin, too.
I have three straight evenings of BARCC plans next week, and that's going to tap me out in terms of social energy. Honestly, I think I need to plan to take it as easy as possible until Wiscon. If I don't end up needing all that time, great, but I want to allow for it.
It is impossible to overestimate how much April kicked my ass. And it ain't over; I have big BARCC stuff ongoing this month, too, though that's mostly during office hours, not volunteer hours.
I need to be making time for writing, as not-writing is not helping my state of mind.
No Link Soup
No time/energy for assembling it yesterday.
Work. Interview about mobilizing communities to take on the issue of sexual violence; my community outreach is considered an agency model. Thanks to you guys, o my community! Buying cards for the moms, coming home, packing up gifts, BPAL, and stuff I'm returning to Anthropologie. I may then drive out to the post office and mail stuff, or I may let it wait til Saturday and just tell the moms "sorry, late". Tackling the to-do list. Which needs expanding again, but also some reduction.
