Last day of quarantine. Still weak like kitten, but capable of eating normal meals.

Birthday week!
It is my birthday week (actual birthday Wednesday) and I am the goddamn birthday princess. I have no idea what that translates to this time around, as I'm likely to be in slow recovery mode all week. Nonetheless, it is so. Make a note of it.

Birthday Party
Roles taken/still available for Twelfth Night can be found here.

Are you going? I have a time-sensitive-ish reason for asking.

No link soup today; it's been a napping/reading/knitting/writing sort of weekend, not an internetty sort of weekend.

Daily Science
Recent data for gas rich galaxies precisely match predictions of a modified theory of gravity known as MOND according to a new analysis by University of Maryland Astronomy Professor Stacy McGaugh. This -- the latest of several successful MOND predictions -- raises new questions about accuracy of the reigning cosmological model of the universe, writes McGaugh in a paper to be published in March in Physical Review Letters.

I may be feeling well enough today to hang up clean clothes? Still on the sedentary recuperation track.

I have never yet been able to find room in my budget to go to WisCon. This is a sad thing.

Woo! My birthday is exactly 7 days after yours! Which reminds me, I need to make a birthday post and such.

At least if you *HAVE* to be quarantined today, it's a damned good day to stay indoors. It's doing the freezing rain thing out here in Wormtown, and my morning walk to work was nightmarish.

Ice... Do Not Want.

If I were to bring you a stash of frozen GF matzo balls ready to be defrosted and plunked into soup, what would be best practices for producing them in my kitchen without cross-contamination? I figure, boiling water bath for food processor work bowl & blade, same for stand mixer bowl & whip, likewise rubber spatula and stainless or pyrex mixing bowl -- ought I to wrap a cutting board in foil to produce an uncontaminated flat surface? They would be frozen on a tray covered in parchment and transferred to a gallon ziplock for transport.

Matzo ball soup is good for convalescents!
