Happy birthday to magenta_girl and scouseboy!

State of the 'Song
Yes, the headache came back yesterday. Seven-day headache. We'll see if it resurfaces today. Perhaps I shall curl up into a little ball. One of the bad things about yesterday was that I found myself unable to nap - when in pain, I try to nap so I can sort of fast-forward through it. No dice.

Transcending Boundaries
Are any of you going? We need to get a box of books to passionandsoul, and I am currently stumped on how that's gonna work.

Link Soup
* Tell us about the pearl foetus.
* I am loving Vag Magazine.
* "Okay, first of all, I just have to ask: are we allergic to the word rape? Or have we been aiding and abetting rape by covering it up as “sex” for so damn long now that we don’t even know how to properly use the word anymore? Because I’m really fucking tired of pointing out the obvious over and over and over again. A child under the age of 12 — 12!!! — cannot “have sex” with an adult. But as these numbers pretty clearly show, an adult sure can rape hir." I've been trying to keep from inundating you with links about rape (though if you follow my on Google Reader, you are totally seeing them there; also, shira_links.)

Link Soup: Daily Science Edition
* Hubble captures new life in an ancient galaxy.
* Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle sets limits on Einstein's 'spooky action at a distance,' new research finds.
* Astronomers find first planet from another galaxy.
* Physicists demonstrate a four-fold quantum memory.

Friday Memeage!
Wearing: Jeans, black shirt, black sweater. Must punch this up with creative jewelry.
Reading: Delusions of Gender by Cordelia Fine.
Writing: "Mi Corazon Azul", Miami mythpunk.
Knitting: Still poking at the very boring scarf for Dad. Decided I hated the scarf I was making for my birthmom; frogged it and started a shawl yesterday, only to find today that her favorite colors do not include the color I was making the shawl in. Which is okay, because Elayna loves the color (Dream in Color Smooshy: Romeo Blue) and the pattern (I think she has a crush on Kirsten Kapur's daughter/model, as she wants everything said daughter models), so now that will be one of her Chanukah gifts. And it's working up superfast. So I'll have time to make one for my birthmom in red or purple.
Today: Getting gwynraven from the airport! Yay Gwyn!
Tomorrow: Getting Elayna to MIT Splash! Then probably intense cleaning or wandering the town with Gwyn, depending how she feels. feste_sylvain + tamidon's older daughter is sleeping over, because she's also attending Splash both days. Heroes is a possibility, if a distant one; I have not gone dancing in forever and I wanna.
Sunday: Getting the kids to Splash. Hopefully finishing house stuff. Making the Thanksgiving grocery list - people gotta RSVP by Sunday! *crosses fingers*

You are so much funkier than me today! I opted for an elisem necklace (My Coney Island) and Wyrding Studios earrings and a vibrant bluepurplegreen shawl worn hipster-scarfwise.

!!! Dad going to be okay?

I have plans for Heroes as well. It's been since July for me.
19th-Nov-2010 02:10 pm (UTC)
I *think* I last went before you! Clearly too long.

It depends how Gwyn feels and how much energy I have; if she wants an early-to-bed night and I still have energy, I will go, and will hope to see you there! <3

Tomorrow: Archaeological dig tomorrow - I can't wait to volunteer! :)

Oh, nifty!
19th-Nov-2010 02:25 pm (UTC)
Yep! :)

We found really cool stuff. Yuan dynasty, pre-Ming ceramics.
19th-Nov-2010 04:32 pm (UTC) - Friday, finally...
Wearing: darky blue jeans, pink soft comfy sweater, my black trench coat still because I think I'm going out to get a cheap cup of coffee, minimal jewelry. (which in my case means ring from Greegan, gold bracelet from g'g'ma, gold necklace from my 18th birthday, pretty earrings that match the outfit.)
Reading: the Metro on the way to work, Nightmare Age edited by Frederik Pohl once I've finished reading the news blurbs. I haven't bitten into a new novel lately.
Planning: 12-hr gaming day tomorrow (noon to midnight), teaching Sunday school 9:30-12 on Sunday, then hopefully going to get my art framed Sunday afternoon. More unpacking eventually the two big boxes with lots of clothing. Also, think about holiday gifts: send cards this year? Bite the pricey bullet and send a number of packages?
19th-Nov-2010 05:08 pm (UTC)
Wearing: Jeans, grey tshirt, green plaid buttondown, new green fleece vest, stylish blue nylon arm sling.
Reading: Eating India by Chitrita Banerji.
Writing: Next episode of Wonder City Stories.
Today: Working. And probably going home to watch more Kyo Kara Maoh.
Tomorrow: More Kyo Kara Maoh, more writing, more unwinding.
Sunday: Picking up our cider order at our favorite orchard, more Kyo Kara Maoh, more writing, more unwinding.

... knowing your daughter is going to Splash makes me wish I still taught at it.

Ooh! What did you teach?
19th-Nov-2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
I taught -- at both Splash and HSSP -- a class on "How to Run a Roleplaying Game". The Splash class turned into a long gaming session that went badly because I had one kid in the class who wanted to dominate everything and would. not. shut. up. The HSSP version went much better, and mostly turned into introducing the kids to different genres of RPGs. I'd do it much differently now. But it was a fun exercise.
