So exhausted. I got a full night's sleep last night, for the first time since before Arisia, but I still need more to catch up. My throat is scratchy. I am hoping that that's an artifact of talking nonstop for four days, but it could, of course, be con crud.
Arisia in General
Went really well, from what I can tell! I had nine panels and a reading, and much of the rest of my time was spent supporting friends at things (feste_sylvain's first reading! cluegirl's reading (I had shamefully never made it to one before)! One of Elayna's panels! miss_lisa_ma's bellydance debut! Everyone's parties!). So I don't know much about the con beyond my panels and the lightning-round feedback I was getting from people in the hallway. Please, tell me how your Arisia was!
Arisia in Specific
I will do a full recap, but not right now.
My previous default icon had been driving me crazy, because it just did not look like me. This icon is from 2003, I think, but it's the only one that approximates my current face shape and therefore isn't jarring in a that's-not-me way. Although I do look far too serious in it. Yes I need new pictures. Yes I hate pictures.
No Link Soup
I have kinda been away from the internets.
Weighing 6.6 billion solar masses, the black hole at the center of galaxy M87 is the most massive black hole for which a precise mass has been measured.
Work, then sleep. Then I wake up for dinner and then I go back to sleep. I imagine that's how the next few days are gonna go.
