loose tea for loose women

i bargained for salvation and they gave a lethal dose

Today I must:

make shepherd's pie
make carrot cake cupcakes
package up books for mailing
do lurking paperwork

work on "The Unicorn Evils"
record podcast of "The Horrid Glory of Its Wings" for Tor.com
record podcast of "Knock on Coffins" for Shadow Unit
take dog for walk

clean basement
put away dry laundry
hang up washed laundry
wash unwashed laundry
feed shoggoth and start bread
eat breakfast
yoga

...that's probably enough things.

Yeah, I got up at 6 am and that's all I have done. (Actually, it's not, there was dog outs and showering and doing dishes and finding the recording equipment and stuff in there too.)

20090406Breakfast was my Sobas Inautententicos, which is to say, soba noodles in Swanson chicken broth with whatever veggies are kicking around the fridge (pearl onions, tomato, green peas) and garlic, ginger, chili pepper, lime, soy sauce, and a little Thai roasted red chili paste. Inauthentic. But delicious.

20090406 001Tea today is Upton Vanilla. Teacup is The Songbird Neighborhood Watch.

This would be one of those social networking call for assistance things.

ETAJo has enough money to cover the funeral and hospice care for the next few days.

Thank you all so much




This is my dear friend, Johanna, with whom I have been friends since I was in college and she was in high school. She's a member of Who fandom and a costumer and a lot of you probably know her from around the internets or the convention scene.

Her husband, Alex, is dying. Pretty much, right now.

He's been fighting cancer for years, and as you can imagine, their funds are pretty much exhausted. They've moved in with family, and times have been hard.

Jo is asking for financial help to cover the funeral expenses.

You know, if you can chip in, it would be--well, not nice. Nothing about this is nice. But it would be a worthy and charitable thing to do.

Her paypal address is johanna_mead@yahoo.com.

Right. Only two things left on that to-do list, and they can be done in bed while drinking Chartreuse. I think I'll get right on that.
