Happy birthday to vixyish!

State of the 'Song
Ugh. I woke up last night at 1ish, 2ish, 3ish, and 4ish. I have no idea why.

Song of the Day
I have been absorbing s00j's new CD all week. It is tickling my dancebrain a lot. I end up with different songs on infinite loop on different days, and today it's "To My Valentine".

It reminds me of a particular person too far away, though he does not have white violet skin. Someone who persists in thinking he's Nightwing when he's the goddamn Batman. This one's too honest, but you're smiling, I pray.

*blink* 61 auction items. Yes. Gracious! Yesterday's arrival was a complete set of Blooddrop's La Mer summer LE series, 15 bottles. <3

Up to $200 raised, thanks to perldiver and arianhwyvar! Sponsor me!

Dating While Feminist
Just a reminder - I'll be one of the speakers/group leaders of NOMAS Boston's "Dating While Feminist" event at the Lir Pub, next Thursday, 6pm. RSVP here if you're on Facebook.

The other speakers/leaders will be Jaclyn Friedman, Thomas MacAulay Millar, and Holly Pervocracy. (EDIT: Thomas can't make it. But it will still be awesome, I promised!)

This will be hella fun and you should come out. My colleague and co-BARCC-blogger Dave is putting this together, and he wants a big crowd!

Efficient 'Song is Efficient
I have been getting a ton of stuff done every day this week. Including a bunch of hated and despised chores I've been putting off, so some of that has been frustrated and annoyed efficiency. So overall I am accomplished, yet resentful, because despite having time alone I am not having any time for me.

Is anyone going to the Theatre @ First Shakespeare One-Acts tonight? I am interested, unable to attend Friday or Saturday, and not inclined to sit alone.
Never mind, sold out. Fie.

Link Soup
* Design with Intent.
* They've located the three peptides in gluten that cause the autoimmune reaction in celiacs. I can haz peptide neutralization?
* Reimagined album covers.
* Janelle Monae's sci-fi odyssey.
* This made me giggle.

Daily Science
We know 'icy' Neptune is partially comprised of water molecules but until now we have had little means to test how water behaves in the extreme conditions that Neptune presents. This is about to change as an international group of physicists draw up plans to use the new Facility for Antiprotons and Ion Research (FAIR) in Germany, which will be ready in 2015, to expose water molecules to heavy ion beams and thereby generate the same level of pressure on the water molecules that they experience within the very inhospitable core of Neptune.

Must pick up meds and library book on the way home from work. I have other errands, but Elayna's free period starts at 3 and I think today's the first day she's allowed to call me, so I want to be home. <3 After that, today needs to be a writing day.

Wow. That was broken in six different ways. Thanks for the heads-up!

I'll be at the One-Acts tonight as I couldn't make any other performance however they have been sold out since (I believe) Tuesday if you haven't gotten a reservation yet.

I've not been the best at being extroverted this week but would certainly welcome the company. Going to be arriving in the Square around 6-6:30 straight from work so I'm looking for dinner partners as well.

Fie! I indeed do not have a ticket.

A supervisor of mine who's from Maine has seen that done to a lobster. Not knowing that, I'd read that and think it was from Charles Fort's clipping collection. :-)
22nd-Jul-2010 05:45 pm (UTC) - Actually, I can't attend ...
Shira, I'm sorry to say that I can't make it. An organization I do work with has a meeting on the 29th and I can't miss it. It came up suddenly right after I told Dave & Jaclyn I'd be there, and so I had to tell Dave & Jaclyn I would not be there. I will really, really miss it.

Dave just told me. Agh! I'm sorry you can't make it; I was looking forward to meeting you. Let us know next time you'll be in Boston?

Ohohoh. I love Janelle Monae. Her sound is so wonderful. Some of it is hip-hop. Some of it is straight up Motown... It's so much win.

Did you get the package from me for the auction? *worries*
24th-Jul-2010 12:27 pm (UTC)
Yes! <3 Love everything!
