Happy birthday to the mighty mightywombat!

State of the 'Song
Lonely. With Adam in California and Elayna in Connecticut, I am both lonely and unmoored in time; Elayna gets home at 3 and Adam gets home at 5:30 and I Tetris chunks of my day around those times. I don't quite know what to do with myself. Yesterday I buckled down and Did Chores. It was a parade of unending obligation and upfuckery that drove me half-mad. Four hours of desperately trying to upload Blogathon auction item pics... neither LJ Scrapbook nor Picasa is doing it for me, and I'm pretty sure it's my connection speed, which is like dialup sometimes. A call was placed to Verizon some time ago, and they need to be poked again, because this can't go on. Especially with Blogathon coming up. And if I can't get pics uploaded today, I need to drive somewhere with a solid connection to do it, which is a pain in my ass and steals my writing time.

Also I apparently can't copy/paste to my auction database.

Yeah, yesterday sucked.

TV Thought
Jessica Walter should just play everyone's grandma ever. I just love Jessica Walter. (Yes, I watch Make It or Break It. It has gymnastics. Shush.)

Daily Science
To trap and hold tiny microparticles, engineers at Harvard have "put a ring on it," using a silicon-based circular resonator to confine particles stably for up to several minutes.

Is this the first time PhysOrg has quoted Beyonce? I think probably. But they may have once posted about whether we are ready for this jelly.

BPAL Review
Banned in Boston: Obscene, lewd, lascivious, and decidedly objectionable. A filthy, post-coitus scent: sweaty and sweet, laced with laudanum, splashed with booze, and stained by tobacco.
In bottle: Mostly sweet booziness; I swear there's a leather note there.
On me: Sweet and a hint of tobacco and leather and yum.

Work. I will try to upload the pics, but I'm not going to spend four hours trying again. I need to work on the story I was supposed to be working on yesterday, dammit. After that, reviews of Mischief and Clockwork Phoenix 3 and a comprehensive Blogathon post.

I just uploaded 56 pictures fairly quickly plus a video the other night from my place, you're welcome to use my internet connection any time.

I'll be in Boston tomorrow after 10am. Let me know if there is anything you need us to help you with this weekend. New phone number sent via private message on Facebook.

D'oh! Silly swiss-cheesed brain- I meant to say next weekend for Blogathon.

When Lucille Bluth showed up on Make It or Break It (which yes, I totally watch too) I shrieked so loud I startled the cat.

It was, however, followed by a "Jean Parmesian! You fooled me again!"

I love her so. She should be everywhere always.
