Jo Lane4,028Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych336,154It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area). Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show. They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good. Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week. As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00165

Oh my gosh, this sounds hella!

In Hope Walton’s small town, being the “homeschooled girl” with crippling phobias doesn’t exactly endear her to her adoptive dad’s perfectly blond, perfectly southern family. But when her mom is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world crumbles. Foisted off on an aunt she’s never met, Hope travels to Scotland where she soon discovers that her mom was more than a brilliant academic: she was a member of a secret society of time travelers. And she’s alive, though currently trapped in the twelfth century, during the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Now Hope must conquer her fears and travel back in time to rescue her mom before she’s lost for good.

Ooooh. You should all enter this giveaway for INTO THE DIM. It's an amazing time travel YA story by my writing friend +Janet B Taylor. I had the great fortune to read early drafts of this and it really rocks.___Oh my gosh, this sounds hella!

So it may not be the greatest accomplishment since sliced bread, but I just logged into my ACX account to find that since the audiobook of DERELICT was released in early June, it's sold 106 copies!

Yay!

Good mornthing!

Man, I like the days where I get to wake up naturally at 9am a helluva lot more than the ones where an alarm wakes me at 5am.

Younger Spawn found a tin of cinnamon Altoids I'd forgotten I had. Those things don't go bad, right? #ImGonnaRiskIt  

Today I'm printing out my Introduction to rework in light of the fact that now my chapters are already written. Also, we're going to the beach so the lads can try out the skimboard I rescued from the dump last month. Fun for errybuggy!

How are you? What's good in your world, Blisstopia?

Good mornthing!

My dad is on a tear with laundry. Also, I've been up for an hour and still have not successfully gauge his mood. Given that it is no stretch to say he was always mercurial in my youth, and that it could change the entire tenor of a day how I responded to him, being able to sort him has always been a life skill and therefore this inability is incredibly disconcerting. Like trying to plan a day that might include a lot of outdoor time and being completely unable to figure out the weather, including whether it is raining or not at this very moment.

On the upside, I made really tasty eggs for breakfast. Yum, eggs.

Today I thesis. Tomorrow, I meet with MDP.

Good nornthing!

How to thingie:

Step 1: blow up many water balloon sized balloons
Step 2: tie them carefully at evenly spaced intervals to a long piece of yarn:
Step 3: apply a 10-year-old to tied balloons, preferably one ho does not listen to"don't touch that" "don't move that" or "put that down!"
Step 4: spend 45 minutes trying to fix it
Step 5: give up, break string

Yields:
- 1 balloon garland of inexplicably perfect length for stringing over pool
- 1 party-themed Gordian Knot perfect for hours of zen entertainment for your Secret Agent Lover Man (or comparable)

Today is Elder Spawn's pool party! SALM and DaughterGirl slept over last night, and since nobody awoke my parents after they went to bed, I call it a success. Also, the world is safe.

The weather is turning out warmer than expected, which is nice; I thought it was going to be too cool for swimming. But the party gods smile upon us! Here's hoping that continues; I am about to call to find out if the cake is ready for pickup. The party is at one.

Good Mornthing!

Today's grand awakening was from Younger Spawn. "MUMMY! Everybody is awake except for you. And it is raining and  your car windows are open."

Waking message: Super effective.

Luckily it's a light rain, so neither I nor the interior of my car were unduly moistened in the process. Since it is raining, the lads have been granted a morning of television. Mom is working, dad is erranding, and I made a  deal with Elder that we wouldn't go do birthday party prep errands until after 12:00, which means I've got about 2 hours to work on my thesis.

Of course, as soon as I resolved to do this and have my things out, I got "MOoo-ooom, he's punching me!" from the living room.

Good mornthing!

My traitorous body woke at 7am... but nobuggy was up in the kiddo realm, so I went back to sleep till half past 8!

Today is a day of multiple tasks and no clear order for them, including thesising, taking the Spawn out on the boat, switching out the front door glass for screen, and making my room a little more human-habitable for tomorrow night's sleepover.

And writing to a game company to request a replacement part, because the thing my mom gave my kiddo is missing a piece crucial for play. The perils of purchasing used. :-/ Anyway, here's Wonderwall he's being pretty chill about it. Yet somehow he has zero chill when I tell him to put on pants. What?

I attempted a pseudo-ombré painting of my fingernails last night. It did not come out well. Sometimes I am bad at girl.

Oh! Email. That is the other thing I need to... more »

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!

I am contributing to the stretch goals of a new game kickstarter!

This is a “Bronze Age” super hero game called “Metahumans Rising.”

Here’s the writeup for my stretch goal:

$6,400: The Dread of Bayou Sauvage (Writer Sam Chupp) Your team has been called to New Orleans, where there have been recent strange, serial murders: victims found bled out, bizarre suicides, deaths by mauling, and a body literally crushed flat as if it had gone through a steel press with claws. The bar-room gossip, the word on the street, and the recent urban legends whisper of werewolves, ghosts, hellfire-wreathed revenants, swamp monsters and worse. If you ask those who are tuned to such things, they will tell you that “spiritual activity” is at an all-time high. Out on Bayou Sauvage the vegetation has grown up nearly overnight. A satellite photograph shows the outline of a strange, manta-ray shaped object roughly the size of a basketball court is underneath all that vegetation. Could this be the start of a new invasion? Is it some strange creature from another world? Or is it a fell beast from the Prince of Darkness himself? Free PDF Adventure for all Backers.
Sound good? Then go back it!___Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!

Good mornthing!

Ten years ago today I was engaged in some major biological Thingmakery - which is to say, giving birth to Eldest. An entire decade later and I am really pleased with how this project is shaping up!

This morning I went to wake him up for school as usual (last day! Whee!) and he tried to burrito himself. In the process of trying to wrap up in his blanket, he fell out of bed and landed on his head. Then he jumped to his feet, declaring, "I'm awake! What a way to start double digits."

Younger was wide awake when I went up after enschoolenating his brother, but since he was apparently content to chill on his bed with his rainbow loom rubber band project, I went back to bed. When I got up, he was dressed, fed, and watching The Littlest Pet Shop.

Now errybuggy is at school, and I have about an hour and a half till Elder comes home.... more »

Now errybuggy is at school, and I have about an hour and a half till Elder comes home. Half day last day, whee! I think I will spend this time drinking coffee and doing some microtranscription; a dime at a time I am earning money to get Younger a tablet of his very own. After that, I will be getting a Kindle for me.

Later, when the lads are both home, we are going to kick off the summer by going on a boat ride with my dad, and maybe even doing some lobstering. Yay! ^_^

For Those Not Used To Tornado Watches & Warnings
Don't panic. And seriously, carry a towel. As well as some blankets and pillows. They'll make things more comfortable for you, as well as help offer some protection in the event of falling debris.

Be sure to have your basic disaster supplies kit ready. Not sure what that entails? Find a useful list of the priority things here: http://www.ready.gov/kit

Don't forget about your medications! Pack them in a purse and/or backpack, and keep them with you at all times. In case disaster does strike, this will help make sure you have them after the fact.

Here's some useful info to read over, especially if this is the first time experiencing this kind of severe weather:

I've survived more tornadoes than I care to even think about. I've even seen two with my own eyes that were less than a mile away from me while I was running for shelter. Trust me, these things are dangerous, and you need to take them seriously. Stay safe.

(Posted for the benefit of those in New England who are currently under Tornado Watches. I've had a lifetime of going through this, so I'm quite used to these situations. But I know many others aren't, so I'm trying to provide what I can to keep everyone calm and safe.)___

Good mornthing!

So, I was awakened by a sweet cheek-smooch from Elder Spawn, and when I opened my eyes he proudly informed me that he was already dressed, he'd had breakfast, and he made lunch for himself (with a tuna sammich in) and for his brother ("PB&J because that's his favorite!").

Amazed, I asked him if I even needed to get out of bed today. So we had a cuddle, and he gave me a $10 bill he got in a birthday card. I loaded $10 onto his 3DS account, and he has downloaded a Pokemon game.

Today is his last day being 9. I was unprepared for such motivation and responsibility. It is delightful, but I am only barely awake and it is giving me feels.

Anyway here's Wonderwall

#TalesOfTheSpawn

Today I am finally wrapping up that thesis chapter. I had several crucial aha moments and am working it all in. MDP is probably going to lacerate my chapter structure, but that is okay. She will be improving it.

I want to go drop in on SALM for lunch today, but have a commitment at Elder's school preventing it. Last week we were informed that the school social worker is moving on at the end of the year's contract, so a bunch of the moms mobilized to throw her a little goodbye party. She has done so much for my kiddo. I'm sorry to see her go, but hope she lands somewhere nice.

+a Glytxh in case you perhaps thought I was exaggerating Younger Spawn's enjoyment of Whim... I hereby present to you his Whim/Minecraft mashup fanart.

He specifically asked me to "share it to that girl you know who makes  the strip art, and tell me what she says, okay mom?"

So. :)

Good mornthing!

This is MFW I am trying to call the credit union to report my card lost (it vanished somewhere between the rest stop in Western MA where I got gas and SALM's house on Friday night) and, when I finally get through to an actual person, my mobile connection is so bad she can't even hear me. IDK what has happened to +AT&T mobile service in my area this month, but I am SUPER unimpressed. It is especially problematic because my folks have disabled long distance service on the landline. I need to see if the CU has an 800 number, or if I can report the card lost online. Otherwise I have to waste some of my driving around in search of a spot with enough bars for me to makes a phone call. WTF.

Today is laundry day for bed linens, to make sure my bed doesn't smell like my gross sweat come Friday. SALM and DG are going to come here,l for Family Movie Night,... more »

Today is laundry day for bed linens, to make sure my bed doesn't smell like my gross sweat come Friday. SALM and DG are going to come here,l for Family Movie Night, and have a sleepover so that conveniently they will already be here Saturday for Elder's birthday pool party. Younger stayed up last night cleaning and intends to finish it today, because I told him a clean room is a contingency for the sleepover.

I need to pick up my room a bit as well, and put in the A/C. It's always hotter up in our rooms than anywhere else, plus running the A/C will cut some of the humidity and give us sound cover for world-saving activities

How you doin'?

Good evething

Didja think I forgot you today, Blisstopia? I didn't.

What I did do was hella oversleep (till noon, WTF?) having nightmares basically the entire time, so it wasn't even restful. I got a little over an hour ostensibly to myself  to work on the thesis, during which SALM's mom came to have a coffeeklatch with me and I got nothing done. When SALM and G got back from frog-catching, I escaped with them to lunch, and we did a mission of attempted bike seat acquisition. (Mission failed.)

We did get back before the Spawnfather came to drop off the lads, and thank zod he did, because I was not up to doing the drive to NY and back again.

Salm and I were trying to adult some planning things when suddenly Father's Day was upgraded - now with Super Intense Parenting!!!! The TL;DR version is that the children decided to mix things in... more »

Salm and I were trying to adult some planning things when suddenly Father's Day was upgraded - now with Super Intense Parenting!!!! The TL;DR version is that the children decided to mix things in bottles. Elder called it Potions, Younger called it Experiments, and DG called it Health Drinks. Only DG tried to drink anything, and while it was juice and mouthwash we were able to determine  that there was not enough mouthwash in the mix to bear a call to Poison Control, even had she drank the entire thing. There were tears and talkings-to and pounding hearts, but everybody is okay.

But I cannot brain the thesising I meant to do, and I am disappoint in my children for shenanigansing without supervision. They frakking know better. >.<
