State of the 'Song
Exhausted. Well, I did work a double yesterday.

State of the WTD
Today I hope, I am sorry, I am still having April madness overflow. I really wish I had this weekend off, but I so do not.

You may get morose-'song anyway, be warned. I'm stuck on the prompt "bells" and my brain won't go past it.

All the Speeches Ever
My speech Saturday will be my fourth survivor speech in three weeks. Generally I might do four in a year. This is a lot of that really close together. The speeches are awesome to do, they help a lot of people, et cetera, but I can't say that self-eviscerating in rapid succession like that is a thing that I would like to do again. Fortunately, we're having a survivor speaker training in June, so we'll have a few more people to take on gigs and I can go back to couple-times-a-year. Basically, I regret nothing, but I'll be happy to take a month off (I'll be speaking at the training in June).

No Link Soup Today
Because I was not really internetting yesterday.

Daily Science
Oddities in the rotation of Saturn's largest moon Titan might add to growing evidence that it harbors an underground ocean, researchers suggest.

Friday Memeage!
Wearing: Last year I found a button-down shirt that actually fit so I bought it in six colors. Today I am wearing that in purple, plus jeans.
Reading: Between books, but about to be The Information by James Gleick.
Writing: The crafters' guide to Shayara, and I need to do WTD.
Knitting: At the end of Nerd Wars, I had an attack of startitis. Baby blanket for a co-worker, wrap in purple/blue for me/Elayna, and the priority: sekrit knitting for a beloved friend.
Today: Work, writing, seeing hammercock in Yeomen of the Guard.
Tomorrow: Slutwalk! My speech is ~1:30-2:00? But I'll stay for the after-party, as much as I can.
Sunday: Mother's Day! And as far as I know I have no plans. *eyes family*

I'm reading The Information too. I'll be interested to see what you think of it.

Wow. The top baby names of 2010 are Jacob and Isabella.

I remain off the top 1000, but see that my mythical daughter Arabella has increased in popularity.

6th-May-2011 02:44 pm (UTC) - Tonight!
Do you guys need a ride? I will be coming down Route 2 (albeit a little early, I plan to grab some kind of quick dinner at the store downstairs from La Sala) and I can pull into Watertown and pick you guys up if needed.

What time, roughly? (Need to plan for food for me. :) )
6th-May-2011 04:21 pm (UTC) - Re: Tonight!
I should be leaving Boxborough around 5:30, which would put me in your area around 6-6:15ish.

That should work! Thank you! :)

"My speech Saturday will be my fourth survivor speech in three weeks. Generally I might do four in a year."

The answer to "how much of this can I do without slowly losing it" is apparently "a little less than that".

Goodness. 4 survivor speeches in 3 weeks! That must be very emotionally intensive..

Wearing: jeans, my purple t-shirt from Bamfield, BC that has a yellow fish on it, and my Oh My Gods! hoodie.
Reading: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Today - work, home for some cleaning in preparation for packing (I'm moving at the end of the month)
Tomorrow & Sunday - sleeping in, more cleaning/packing, hopefully spending some time with le boyfriend
6th-May-2011 06:57 pm (UTC) - Friday:
Wearing: Black jeans, black/white/grey asymmetrically-striped long-sleeved shirt, silver bracelet, gold bracelet, silver earrings, black Merrills.
Reading: just finished rereading Kushiel's Dart, might read Odd and the Frost Giants next. I'm going for the quick-change.
Creative outlet: I made crock-pot Many-bean Soup the other night, and cooked tasty fish last night, and hope to keep myself interested in eating healthy food by enjoying making it.
Planning: There's a game-night tonight, so 4-5 hours of random gaming.
- Saturday: re-organize the study so we can pick up and move in a big L-shaped table to be used as hobby space; go to his parents' house to do laundry and watch hockey, think about/prepare for Sunday morning.
- Sunday: teach in the morning a combined class with older kids, themed on Yom Haaztma'ut; I want to find some good Israeli songs to teach the kids. Sunday afternoon: no freakin' clue. There are lots of possibilities. Oh, go shopping for more veggies, rice, quinoa, fruit. Call various mothers to whom I am related, possibly also those to whom I am not related.
7th-May-2011 01:17 pm (UTC) - Speaking of Slutwalk.
I just say this on TVO here in Ontario. When I saw the Boston organizer I wondered if you would be there. I guess you are. Good luck!
