Just typical Friday memeage for now; I've much to do.

Blue long-sleeved shirt with drapey neckline, jeans, science socks.

Just finished On Such a Full Sea by Chang Rae-Lee; have not decided on next book yet.

Last time I wrote, I was fiddling with those twinned Vegas stories - same story of the same two people, but in very different voices and slightly offset in time. They could work together, but I haven't had the lightning-bolt of how yet. Also I finished a mythy cyberpunky short story, and it's time to take another look at it and see if it needs anything else done to it. Basically I'll knit til my mind starts to wander toward one story or another, and then I will go write.

Because easy-enough knitting is a meditation-with-movement much like walking would be, in better weather. And the Ysolda Follow Your Arrow MKAL is easy-enough knitting, at least at this point. I'm doing Clue 2A after Clue 1A, with dark grey as my Color 1 and orange as my Color 2. Chose 1A for its novel construction and, given that I started it in the worst of the maelstrom, chose 2A because it's easy and soothing. The main technique in 2B is one that doesn't intrinsically make sense to me, so attempting it in a time of extreme stress would likely have resulted in me throwing my knitting across the room in frustration. I've been slower this week than I was last week for obvious reasons, but I'll still probably finish it today, and then back to the odious baby blanket of doom.

Super broke after Nicky's surgeries and Arisia hotel and whatnot, so not going to burlesque at Oberon tonight. :( (Yes, Woody, your share came in and is wending its way through PayPal to my bank account; thank you! But Nicky's followup is Monday, and I have to assume all the money will go there.)

Tomorrow I'm assisting with survivor speaker training at BARCC. I'll get out around lunchtime. Will anyone be in town and looking to get up to hijinks? I'd like to schedule some self-care just in case.
