Happy Birthday to ahf!

Hello to new reader shooflypie!

State of the 'Song
Woke up at 3 yesterday. >.< But I appear to have gotten a semi-decent amount of sleep last night. Yes, I need to call my damn doctor.

Holiday Follies So Far
So far, everything is the wrong color or too big. Everything I'm getting, anyway. Except the waffle-maker from Adam. Everyone seems perfectly delighted with the stuff I'm giving them, so yay on that front, at least. Elayna has been squeaking and embracing everything. We're giving her all of her Chanukah gifts during the first three nights, because she'll then be with my birthfamily for the next three and then with my parents for the last few, so she won't be deprived.

Thank you for the knitting patterns, ginskye and lessthanthree!

Link Soup
* One teacher's approach to preventing gender bullying in a classroom. Awesome.
* New Stone Telling, yay!
* I want this house.
* Gabe and Tycho of Penny Arcade still think rape is hilarious.
* Nifty Doctor Who timeline.
* X-Men with googly eyes.
* Mystery donors paying off layaway accounts.
* Writers and kitties.

Daily Science
Multiple Sclerosis is a metabolic disorder. Read Nicola's whole post for the implications!

I only have about two hours of writing time today, so I gotta grab that. Otherwise: the making of a big to-do list, some baking, packing up stuff to be exchanged, and, when Elayna gets home, helping her pack for her trip.

That's a really good timeline.

Wow! Bumper set of "this is relevant to my interests" links, there. =:o}

It's not the X-men with googly eyes themselves I love so much as the helpful Venn Diagrams alongside them. Although the first one makes me want to send them a picture of Jesus looking all hurt and indignant, with the caption: "Mindless followers? DO NOT WANT!"

Ironic how strongly that DW timeline asserts the gender binary, coming in the same post as the first link... =:o\

I'm now in two minds as to whether to ping someone with a link to the MS research, or wait and see if anything more comes of it, lest it gets her hopes up prematurely...

Oh, I hope this proves to be true, for MS. I'm not saying it isn't. I'm just restraining myself from jumping on the New And Shiny Idea bandwagon.

And, really, with all the other benefits of eliminating these foods from my diet, it would be helpful even if it wasn't the case.

Thank you for the multiple sclerosis link - I have forwarded it to my MS Nurse and retweeted it.

Thanks for the link about the paying off of the layaways. What lovely people.
