Happy birthday to bodhifox!

State of the 'Song
Enough sleep last night. Ish. Got to bed lateish, but almost entirely slept through the night, so I'm calling it a win. (except now I'm exhausted so maybe not.)

I'll have big news soon about lifechangey things. Stay tuned.

Concerts this week!
Oi, Bostonians!

Marian Call at Pandemonium Thursday!

Strowler artists Sharon Knight, Kellianna, and Wendy Rule at the Lilypad Friday!

Daily Science
UC Irvine and French researchers have identified a central switch responsible for the transformation of healthy brain cells into epileptic ones, opening the way to both treat and prevent temporal lobe epilepsy.

You may not get at first sight how HOLY CRAP that is, but go read. HOLY CRAP. Between that and the sodium-channels discovery I posted about recently, epilepsy treatment is going to be changing radically!

Quick swing by the doctor, work, yarn store, summer camp shopping for Elayna, writing most likely napping for me and Sindrian Arts stuff for sindrian. I'm still recovering from the sleep stuff and cannot at this point imagine that I'll want to go to Diesel. I may get to starting The Bind-Off From Hell on the Hemlock Ring blanket tonight. We'll see!

This is the bind-off that never ends...
it goes on and on and on....

I'm working on a Mirabilis edge/bindoff. Ten stitches into every stitch in the border, which I refuse to count because that will make me cry. I feel ya.

Mirabilis the blanket? Oy gevalt, tell me you're making the baby size.

My Hemlock Ring is full-size in bulky yarn. 5 stitches into every other stitch, but there are over 500 stitches on this round.

Shawl size. Like, knit until I'm halfway through my third skein of near-laceweight. And now, darn you, I will go home and count stitches.

It's like when I was making the epic wedding Afghan of Doom that ended up being over 4 feet wide and well over six feet long.
Granny: "How long does it take you to knit a row?"
me: "I don't know. I don't want to know." *looks at clock, times next row*

I counted. 145 between markers, which means 580 total. Somehow, that doesn't seem so bad.

See, when we confront our fears....
