Happy birthday to corrguineacht!

Hello to new reader brendandetzner!

State of the 'Song
Still a bit slow from getting glutened Friday. Hopefully the brainfog will have eased enough for me to Get Stuff Done today.

Treats for Tits!
The treatsfortits auction is ending today, and bids are close to $1,000! Go bid! Plenty of yummy stuff going for low prices!

I Totally Forgot to Tell You Guys
Because I was away from my computer most of last week - I won the Boston Service Hero thing! I get a dessert party at Finale. I don't know how many people I get to bring yet... I'm going in to pick up the certificate and get interviewed and photographed tomorrow. Thank you, people who voted! You rock!

Link Soup
* I am like this all the time.
* Steampunk sex toys.
* Saturday I posted a link about real women; it's been suggested that I link to posts about real men, so here are two.
* Locals - roller skating 10/13!

Daily Science
When researchers found an unusual linkage between solar flares and the inner life of radioactive elements on Earth, it touched off a scientific detective investigation that could end up protecting the lives of space-walking astronauts and maybe rewriting some of the assumptions of physics.

Phew! Volunteer training is over, and I get to return to my desk in my office and my schedule. Speaking of schedule, I have scheduled blocks of time to work on StrowlerCon and Arisia stuff this week, as those totally fell by the wayside last week. Today is Strowler planning day. *decisive nod* If I have time and energy, I'll bake up a sample batch of my cornbread and bring it to taura_g's.

Congratulations on the award!

The Schwyzer post is...thought-provoking. Hmm.

Can you ask your smart and lovely daughter if she has some recommendations for manga books that are 8-year-old appropriate? Kidlet has picked up Naruto and is devouring it. Figure if it gets her to read, I'll feed it. :)

In case it isn't clear, I have absolutely bupkus for knowledge about manga/anime. I liked a few things I've hit-or-missed on Cartoon Network. If she has recs for educating the clueless (me) that would also help as the little I got on the cover of the Naruto book made me interested.

She suggests Cardcaptor Sakura, Ultra Maniac, and Angelic Layer. She may have more, but that's a good starting point!
30th-Aug-2010 02:07 pm (UTC) - Men on men
Your first link on real men - written by a man - I found to be devastatingly on point. Tell you about it some time, not in LJ comments.

The second, by a woman, less so. I sympathize with her point(s) but I'm not sure a woman speaks to those points any more than I could speak to what it means to be a "real woman."

*nods* The second one was sent to me for Link Soup; the first one, my BARCC colleague Dave shared with me months ago. Clearly it stuck in my mind!

I've become really impressed by Hugo Schwyzer's blog since reading his post about men and attraction. I have been the target of desire before, but I remember the first time and it really blew my mind. It still can, especially when I'm having a low body-image day.
