Still feeling very sluggish. Hope actually getting out of the house will fix that.
Arisia Arisia Arisia Arisia Arisia. That is the sound of my brain right now. It's all Being John Malkovich up in here. Except Arisia. You have my schedule, you probably have my contact info if you need it, I will see you there. (Side note: I am amused that I am one of the people of interest here, as I can think of a bunch of program participants more famous than me who aren't listed.)
Remind me what you got published last year. For Rhyslings. (I had "Nine Things About Oracles" in Electric Velocipede, and I'll e-mail it to you if you'd like.)
Random Comics Thing
About DC's new crossover, Flashpoint. I knew who most of the clues referred to right off, but I called Adam over to help me figure out 3 and 5.
Part I: The spaceship never crashed. Obviously Superman.
Part II: He spends his days running Wayne Casinos. Obviously Batman.
Part III: They experimented on him in a lab for years. My original thought was Flash, but since he's central to the crossover, it's probably not him. Once we figured out #5, we figured that this is probably Martian Manhunter.
Part IV: Where is his ring? Obviously Green Lantern.
Part V: Their marriage was arranged to prevent war. Obviously Wonder Woman... and we were wracking our brains trying to figure out who else would be of WW's general stature, when Adam was like "duh, Aquaman is royalty." So that's our bet.
Foxes use the earth's magnetic field to hunt.
Wearing: Dark blue sweater with enormous cowlneck over Lost Girls Pirate Academy t-shirt and jeans. Cold day, but the Arisia hotel is reportedly warm.
Reading: Packing for Mars by Mary Roach.
Knitting: I did finish the shawl I set out to finish earlier this week. It is gorgeous. Only thing on my needles right now is a sekrit project.
Planning: Arisia Arisia Arisia. ALSO ARISIA.
The most important specific planning is for my reading. Which I remind you is 6:30pm on Saturday. I'm leaning toward reading from Cicatrix (a less bleak part than I read last time), but I would like input!
