One of my favorite authors (I know,I have several) wants my mom's salsa recipe.

For some reason this is amazingly awesome to me.

I am such a geek.

I think my work on the diseases for GTP impressed the guys; they keep handing me new and increasingly complex jobs to do. Right now I'm doing a fucking statistical analysis of a bunch of abilities. Or at least a pseudo-statistical analysis. Can someone who failed algebra twice do a real analysis?

Going home for a few days tomorrow. Making the aforementioned salsa with my mother, visiting the doctor for gynocological stuff (renewing birth control FTW) and having my follow up appointment with the eye doctor (god I hope that my eyes aren't mushy anymore. I really want my contacts back!). Also want to go to the farmer's market back in Holland. I don't know why I never go to the one here in Ypsi...I think I need the safety blanket of my mom there to tell me what's good and what isn't, lol.

Also? Ian McKellan is crazy!awesome

OMG OMG OMG. Scott Westerfeld is going to be at Confusion in Detroit in January.

I wonder if there's a limit on how many books we can bring for him to sign?

Last year, seriously, there was no one big. Now Scott Westerfeld and his wife are going to be there. ZOMG. I hadn't been planning on going back because it was a so-so con, but I will SO BE THERE this January.

~squees excitedly~

I'll definitely have to have my Specials clothing before then. Maybe there's some awesome quality stuff at my mom's store that will let me make my own shirts; one where the iron-on transfers don't fall off after two washes...

Billy is sick :-( :-( :-(

Spent this weekend over in the forensics room helping out this years team. I am so excited. We have a really driven freshman class. I have a feeling I've written this in here before, but I don't care. I also felt extremely loved: I walked in the forensics room and was immediately pounced on by a freshman to help with cutting a DI. Then I read her prose later on and discussed speeches with several people (ALL OF MY PET TOPICS HAVE BEEN PICKED UP BY AWESOME COMPETITORS. I AM SO EXCITED. THE CAPS MAKE IT TRUE).

Working on some het smut for Bring Back the Porn day - September 1st. Maybe it won't end up being smutty-smut; the style so far isn't lending itself to really graphic descriptions of sex (not that I've got that far yet). I'm going to spend this week doing some research for GTP, writing various smut fics for the aforementioned Porn day, and putting my apartment back in order after the ordeal of filming (my kitchen is completely cleaned - as in I even scrubbed the burners and inside the microwave - and I've made a dent in the ginormous PILE OF CRAP in the entry way).

Tomorrow's schedule (in no particular order):
-Wake up early to give Chris his microphone
-Return the cans and bottles
-Do grocery shopping
-Call doctor(s) to schedule appointments (hopefully for this week) to get contacts and a renewed birth control prescription (considering switching from the patch to Lybrel. Anyone happen to have any experience with that pill yet?)
-Call parents to find out about the insurance thing
-Schedule Pirate day with Misty and Diane
-Work (blah)

So much crap to do!

Scott Westerfeld is going to DragonCon...and is going to be on panels with Cassie Cla(i)re.

Now I know what it feels like to have your impressions of a fav author be dashed by his associations.

I still want the Specials clothes, though.

Also, continued pimpage: [info]hp_slashfantasy! (on IJ, for those who are following in GJ land) Join! It'll be awesome fun!
