11 days!

Happy birthday to ellyssian, we_happy_few, and mllelaurel!

Happy early birthday to trouvera, zeppo, azurelunatic, and vanuslux!

Hello to new readers kate_nepveu and kynn!

State of the 'Song
Crashed out pretty much straight from work yesterday. Have yet to get un-tired from Wiscon and travel and glutening.

Link Soup, The Hub Version
* "Equestria Girls". MLP:FiM fans, just watch. Actually, everyone watch. You will become fans.
* Via ktempest, minimalist MLP wallpapers.
* Like "Equestria Girls", this is an actual Hub promo: "Jem Don't Care". Yes, by Randall, the Honey Badger guy. Jem don't care. She just takes what she wants. [h/t weds!]

Daily Science
Robot Skin Can Feel Touch, Sense Chemicals, and Soak Up Solar Power . (I can see stories in this, but they're all creepy.)

Friday Memeage
Wearing: Jeans and a black crewneck T. SRS BIZNESS. (Also, it's in the 50s here. What?)
Reading: One of our Thursdays is Missing by Jasper Fforde.
Writing: Started a short story earlier in the week, but have not had brainspace for writing since I got home, and that's terrible, just like Lex Luthor stealing 40 cakes.
Knitting: Red Clothilde shawl, gold Villeray scarf.
Planning: Well. Today is going to be Eventful no matter how it goes down. Tomorrow's the Survivor Speaker training. Sunday I have nothing on my calendar, and I'm keeping it that way - we have serious housework to do, and I need to intersperse that with rest. One of the Wiscon reality checks = how far my internalized ablism goes. Stubborning myself through trying to function as an able-bodied person is not doing me any favors. That's a post I owe y'all. I owe you a few posts.

That's a post I would very much like to read. I could probably write my own version of that post, too.

There are already stories about this. They just happen to take every android or cyborg story and make it closer to reality. It also answers the question of "how do you power a bionic arm?"

DARPA is answering that question right now. :)

And my stories are... different. And it's probably best that they remain inside my head!

That robot skin blows my mind. Every so often something reminds me that we're living in the future!
3rd-Jun-2011 02:58 pm (UTC) - Take it easy, Hon.
I hope today goes well for you.

Wearing: Jeans and "Scoundrel for Hire" tshirt.
Writing: Emails and more emails
Reading: CompTIA Network+ All-in-one
Knitting: nada at the moment
Planning: moderately busy weekend ahead.

I'm a fan of Jasper Fforde. Shades of Grey is very thought provoking and I can't wait for the next, but that won't be until like 2014.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Also, re: the newer post, good thoughts headed your way!

Friday Memeage
Wearing:Black Jeans, short sleeve shirt, sweater, shawl. Tis colder than I liked this morn.
Reading: Playing on the Edge, too many blogs.
Writing: Have a post on RC and metaphors in the works. I should post that....
Knitting: Anne sweater (not called that, but the pattern name in some place is Green Gables, so....)
Planning: Last day of work at Cambridge College. Then isolation evening, in preparation for Survivor Speaker training tomorrow (GAH NERVOUS). Evening plans in place afterward with someone who can deal with me no matter the headspace. Sunday plans to meet a new person in the early afternoon; if that ends early enough, plans to make plans with a something-relationship afterward. New/old work Monday.
