Still exhausted. I overnapped yesterday and so did not get to Diesel. :(

Volunteer Training
Still going smoothly! *crosses fingers*

I will be reading "Pruzy's Pot" at the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Reading. You have no idea of the scale of the gleeful cackling over here.

Also, Rhysling voting is open. Oh, do I have a lot of poems to read for the short-poem category. And if you liked "When Her Eyes Open", I hope you'll vote for it. (What's the protocol for nominees? Don't vote in the category you're nominated in, or just vote for other poems?)

Lots of Shayara background-world stuff swirling in my head. Time time I need *time*.

Symphony of Science: The Case for Mars

Let's go exploring right now you guys.

Link Soup
* How to write non-Anglocentric, non-racist, non-colonialist steampunk.
* Calvin Minus Hobbes.
* Ms. Magazine interviews FEMINIST HULK. I love this.

Daily Science
The first instances of sonoluminescence were documented in the mid-nineteen-thirties, when scientists experimenting with naval sonar noticed that sound waves, when traveling through water, could sometimes create a bluish glow. Small bubbles would emit flashes of light in ways that could only be termed ‘aces'.

Volunteer training, and I need to write a BARCC blog post and do DPH paperwork, too. I will almost certainly nap my afternoon away. Date night with feste_sylvain!

Calvin Minus Hobbes is one of the saddest things I've seen in a while. It's really depressing to see Calvin's world from the outside. And it makes me feel sad for his parents, because this must be how they see the world.

Let's say that Calvin and Hobbes is part of the world as we know it. In the comic strip, we see Hobbes as Calvin does, which means we're privy to Calvin's internal perspective. This could mean that the conversations he's having with Hobbes are similarly in his head, or done sotto voce. It could also be that while we see Hobbes walking around and tackling him, in the external, non-Calvin reality, he's holding his tiger and playing with it, like kids will.

It's all about perspective. I choose to interpret this loosely. I'm also choosing not to read the website closely, once I glanced it over, because I don't want to even give myself the opportunity to make it sad. }:->

When asked about the true nature of Hobbes, Bill Watterson has never given a straight answer. Instead, he's always implied that, for Calvin, his view of reality was just as valid, if not more so, than that of his parents.

I've always thought that Hobbes was real. But then again, I was always that kind of dreamer.
