c is for cat

(no subject)

  • 10:45 Went to bed with story incomplete. Played snooze alarm tag for two hours. Starting again. #
  • 12:19 I would like bubble tea a lot more if the bubbles were made out of something other than yucky plasticky tapioca. #
  • 12:57 @timpratt I think you're on to something... #
  • 15:35 Story finished! Other reason I can't liveblog writing: must turn internet off to get anything done. #
  • 17:41 I mean, look. Dollhouse isn't good. It's not even close to up to JW's standard. But it's marginally ok these days, standards aside. #
  • 17:53 Puppies! Did the housesitter teach you how to open the front gate? Dammit! #
  • 18:24 Have finished work for the day. Shall I knit? Yes, I think so. #
  • 18:25 @Yagathai Just near the ferry on the mainland. #
  • 23:12 #LOTNOFC *peeks* Anyone out there? My night=learning King Charles Brocade and MI5. If I have cheap wine I can take a level in Hot Old Lady. #
  • 23:16 @pnkrokhockeymom Heh. I'm even wearing a CARDIGAN. With my hair in a BUN. And I'm not even a LIBRARIAN. #
  • 23:29 If I stream CSI just to have something on while knitting,it's not like really, /really/ watching CSI,is it?The morality involved is obscure. #
  • 23:34 @godaughterdeath We don't actually have TV. I'm streaming off of Netflix. They don't have the greatest selection on instant. #
  • 23:43 I am afeared of my spinning wheel. But I am trying. Far fewer instructions online than knitting. Oh for a @kythryne! #
  • 00:04 @wednesday I will. I also want to figure it out myself. At least I'm still laughing when I fuck up, not swearing. #
  • 00:40 Ugh. Ok, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. It'll take up the leader but the wool won't wrap around the...thingy. #
  • 00:45 I suspect it's kinking up too fast to pass smoothly over the hooks but I don't know how to keep it from doing goes so fast. #
  • 00:57 Well, I certainly ruined a whole bunch of fiber tonight, so that's an accomplishment. (not really, as I only have a bit of the cheapie) #

I will be there. My schedule is as follows:

Friday 10 am-12/1 Poetry Workshop what I am leading. 
Now, if you wanted to do this and didn't get in under the deadline I will happily take one or two people more, unofficially. Just bring copies of your poem for everyone.

Friday 9:30pm: s00j  (and small Cat) concert after opening ceremonies! This will include some as-yet-undetermined number of Palimpsest/Orphan's Tales readings and songs, as well as lots of other s00jy awesome!

Saturday 10am @ Room Of One's Own Attendees Receive Free Cyber Unicorn Reading
Please come to this! Readings are the most important part of a con for me. And I'll tell you what--I'll open it up to the comments. What would you like to hear me read? Any particular part from Palimpsest, any short story--would rather not do the Orphan's Tales as people have heard that a lot at Wiscon.

Sunday 8:30 am- 9:45: Judging the Tiptree. Just me and ktempest  out of the whole jury.
I can't tell you to show, but I can say...this should be interesting, as she and I are somewhat opinionated. And we will not have had coffee.

Sunday 10pm-11:15 Acting for Authors

This should be awesome, Will and I have been trying to get it on the schedule for two years. Remember how you guys kept saying you liked how I read and how the book/stage show works? Here's where we teach you how to give a good reading, inflect, develop subtle character voices, craft your onstage presence. You will have to give a lot of readings in your career--why not make them good ones?

Monday 11 am: The SignOut.

I sign everything! I r signing monster.

Obviously I'll also be at the Tiptree dessert, since I was a Tiptree judge. (ktempest , do we have a script for that?)

Other than all this, I really want to take it easy at this con, be low-key, and just enjoy being around friends and loved ones. I'm still a little really tired and low energy. If you have space for easy affection and conversation, please find me. I do very much want to see you. My cell is 440-991-6438. Really want to see all my train family, hopefully thestomachdream  and scathedobsidian  and pretendpeterpan  too? Will likely be at many parties, but mostly at the verb_noire  and Tor ones.

Also, my meal schedule is sort of amorphous. Holler if you want to consume a calorie with me!
