Happy birthday to jet_li_wannabe!
Happy early birthday to thedigitalkuri, moniqueleigh, and oldmotherchaos, who advance a year over the weekend!
It's been a rollercoastery week, with the weather changes wreaking havoc on my pain levels and a bit too much activity. Exhaustion is.
The Internet is Awesome.

My Internet, Not So Much
Keeps going out, which means that none of the dozens of time-sensitive things I've been handling via e-mail are getting handled. Adam's getting a new router today. This makes my lack of weekend travel plans certain, as I needed to be getting this stuff done this week.
In a feat that is the culmination of two and a half years of tests and adjustments, researchers at the J. Craig Venter Institute inserted artificial genetic material — chemically printed, synthesized and assembled — into cells that were then able to grow naturally.
Wearing: Vivid blue shirt, Wyrding Studios jewelry, jeans.
Reading: Eyes Like Sky and Coal and Moonlight by Cat Rambo, The Cardboard Universe still.
Writing: Nothing, because I did not get a single second of writing time this week. Hopefully today, because I have two things in particular I really want to get done by Wiscon.
Knitting: The shawl and the baby blanket.
I was going to try to travel this weekend, but that seems untenable. So. Today after work needs to be writing time if it's not collapse time. Tomorrow I may be called upon to table for BARCC; last-minute request. Otherwise I am unplanned and need to be resting and getting stuff done around the house. Expect an updated to-do list if I have internet this afternoon.
