Happy birthday to kebechet and albemuth!

Hello to new reader cloud_riven!

State of the 'Song
Still terribly nauseated. I managed 20 bites of food yesterday. This is, of course, not helping with the whole weak-like-kitten thing.

Probably relevant: "These findings indicate there is a transient, not sustained, immune suppression in some children exposed to a new antigen at the same time as a corticosteroid administration," says Ducharme. "In summary, our finding suggest a transient immune suppression occurs in some children who are concomitantly exposed to a new antigen and corticosteroids during an asthma attack, with a recovery within six weeks."

*glares at her corticosteroid inhaler* Well. FML.

(Yes, I know it says children, but my body's responses to things are more in line with children-and-the-elderly than grown adults.)

Men! Need Feminism 101?
Thomas Macaulay Miller writes: "I am writing the For The Men chapter of Jaclyn [Friedman]'s new book, and I need to workshop it with guys. I put out a call, but all the guys I got were serious feminist-allied members of the choir who are way past 101 level. They're great, but they're not representative. I need 101 level guys who want to not be sexist but have not already done all the work. My friends, can you supply such a dude? Such a dude would get a week to read a 5000 word chapter and then need to do a workshop conference call the weekend of the 12th of March, probably on the 12th."

I know a lot of you are way beyond 101. *cheers* But there may be some guys out there who have not yet gotten started and would like to do so. If so, please comment or e-mail me at shadesong AT gmail.com, and I'll get you in touch with Thomas!

* This is emilytheslayer's knitting group, yay!
* Patrick Rothfuss wants to help Nathan Fillion buy Firefly.
* Nihilistic Hipster Lilo.
* Awesome Game of Thrones featurette.
* Facebook ads for Marvel & DC characters.
* Trailer for the Justice League XXX porn parody. It's not all that informative, but all you really need is "Ron Jeremy as The Penguin", right? I'm going to have to save the Batman porn and watch these as a double-header. Yeah, I said that.

Daily Science
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has discovered the first direct evidence for a superfluid, a bizarre, friction-free state of matter, at the core of a neutron star. Superfluids created in laboratories on Earth exhibit remarkable properties, such as the ability to climb upward and escape airtight containers. The finding has important implications for understanding nuclear interactions in matter at the highest known densities.

Same as yesterday and the day before, alas.

But Double Header is part of the Legion of Substitute Heroes, not the JLA.

It's a crossover event.

Ah, well that's okay, then.

There's a Wonder Woman porn?

(The Batman one is boring as fuck, but the costumes are really authentic.)

I got hit with a nasty stomach virus two weeks ago, and found that while I couldn't eat anything, drinking orange juice (oddly enough) seemed to work to stave off the "I'm going to keel over now" somewhat. Just in case that's helpful.

My brain just broke.

I hope it's not the steroid inhaler! Though I note that when I first started my steroid inhaler, I had a miserable weeklong flare of my "probably fibro". I don't get that any more (knock wood), but it was v. unpleasant.

I hope you start feeling better soon!

Oh, fuck, Patrick Rothfuss, you're guaranteeing your book will tank.

(Wednesday Rule of Operations: never squee unless the good thing actually happens, and only then after it can't be undone.)

Thank you for reminding me about that Thomas thing!

I saw that last week and was going to reply and send it along to peoples, but forgot in the swamp of things.

I was actually thinking of trying to recruit some people I know here who might be closer to the well-intentioned but haven't really tackled it idea here.

I might have a volunteer for the book. I'll ask tonight and email you if he agrees.
