Thor's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to kires and wakingdreaming!

State of the 'Song
I've adjusted to the center of my new glasses. I think the rest of the lens is beveled wrong or something. I hope to have time this weekend to go get that checked out.

Speaking of Time
If I tell you I don't have time to do whatever non-time-sensitive thing you want me to do, do not tell me I can find the time. I promise you I cannot, and you pushing me on it instills Thoughts of Violence. I am currently in my busiest month at work, which is actually double-busy this time around. I am on novel deadline. And I literally do not have time to list all the rest of the time-sensitive things that I need to be doing. Which should tell you something.

Anything that's not an emergency thing: Leave me a message and I may get to it in September. I am not promising anything earlier than September. I am not kidding.

Daily Science
Data from a major US atom smasher lab may have revealed a new elementary particle, or potentially a new force of nature that could expand our knowledge of the properties of matter, physicists say...."There could be some new force beyond the force that we know," said Giovanni Punzi, a physicist with the international research team that is analyzing the data from the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. "If it is confirmed, it could point to a whole new world of interactions," he told AFP. While much remains a mystery, researchers agree that this is not the "God Particle," or the Higgs-boson, a hypothetical elementary particle that has long eluded physicists who believe it could explain why objects have mass. "The Higgs-boson is a piece that goes into the puzzle that we already have," said Punzi. "Whereas this is something that goes a little bit beyond that -- a new interaction, a new force."

Plans
Work, lunch with skintalker, writing, dinner with ethicsgradient and his wife, helping Elayna pack for her NYC trip, deadline knitting (Elayna needs a scarf for her 3/16 concert at MIT), twitching from overcommitment, hopefully sleeping.
