Happy birthday to any_contingency!
State of the 'Song
Day four of massively interrupted sleep argh.
So I remembered that hey, I am a member of the Sundara yarn group on Ravelry! Let's see what other people got for autumn!
...yes, this is actually what they are passing off as autumn. %$&^&^%
I don't know how to make stash pics visible to people not on Ravelry, but here's the pink/violet, which is almost certainly up for swap or sale; here's the green, which I have decided I actually like, but it is not autumnal you guys. At all. *sulk*
It turns out you only get one vote! So if you voted for me an Dave yesterday, please to delete one and vote for me or Dave.
If you have not voted, please do! Click here, click "Shira Lipkin" or "Dave Rini", and click the VOTE button. Make sure you actually tweet the vote when prompted, or it shan't be counted. You do not have to be local to vote!
Dave and I have an Unsekrit Pact that if one of us wins, we are inviting the other to our ice cream party.
Workshops at Wyrding Studios!
I remind you! This will be awfully fun; it's the sort of thing I do as a recharge anyway, visit Kyth and Amy and the menagerie and make stuff, so making a party of it? Awesome. If you need an emotional recharge and like making stuff, this is a great idea. I'm going to the September 4th one.
Labor Day Weekend
Hey locals: Are there any existing labor day weekend plans? Because I might do something that Sunday or Monday if I can talk Adam into it and if there's not already a lot going on that I've skimmed past on Suspects.

Building on an enzyme found in nature, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a nanoscale coating for surgical equipment, hospital walls, and other surfaces which safely eradicates methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), the bacteria responsible for antibiotic resistant infections. (To which all I can say is now? Too fucking late.)
Work. Work is particularly jam-packed this week, so - hugs if you see me! Please? Possibly nap, possibly writing, as Elayna will be off partying with lunalovegoddess and family; I hope for writing, but my lack of sleep may kick my ass. Diesel.
