Happy early birthday to bettybaker, sterling_raptor, lyssrose, storme, and sylverice2, who all advance a year over the weekend!
Hello to new readers apexmachina, chesyaburke, and tacky_tramp!
State of the 'Song
Well, I only woke up twice last night. Which is better than the night before. Yay?
Just a reminder for people donating items: the auction begins Monday, so if I get your pieces any later than that and I don't have photos and descriptions of them by Sunday, I can't run 'em. If your item will be here later, e-mail me and we can try to figure something out.
Locals with stuff to drop off: I won't be in town tomorrow, but Adam will; please wait til afternoon, though, because he's taking the redeye home from CA and will likely want a nap.
Post will be open for another 24 hours. Get your confessions in!
* The top idea in your mind.
* Why the next big pop-culture wave after cupcakes might be libraries.

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has detected a hypervelocity star - a rare entity moving three times faster than our sun.
Wearing: Green crinkly top, ivory skirt with big green flowers and beading. Hey, I walk to/from work. Therefore I wear skirts in the summer.
Reading: Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris, Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men, by Michael Kimmel.
Writing: "Between Truth and Life".
Knitting: Yes, yet another baby blanket. For once, I only have one project on the needles. Must pick another small project.
Today: I have to wrap up this story after work. Tonight, the Jonathan Coulton concert with feste_sylvain. Anyone up for an ice cream run after that?
Tomorrow: I am swashbucklr's date to a wedding somewhere out in the vague mythical part of Massachusetts outside 128. Is there life beyond the Hub?
Sunday: Crunch time for the auction. Possibly calling people frantically to come over and borrow their internet if my connection is still too slow to upload the pics. Auction goes live first thing Monday; we are out of wiggle room.
