I'm going to try to keep reading LJ, but it turns out I can only read while logged in on my computer in FF. My phone's browsers don't load anything, and neither does Chrome on my computer.

Or, to suggest a panel:
Lots of panels need more variety in their panelists, whether more women, more people of color, or other under-represented groups. So please, if you're interested, go say so. :)
At least now I know why my adult shrimps were dying...
I kill you with de-wormer! Hopefully! Will see if any wander past in the morning, and add a tiny bit more if not.
My betta loved the ones large enough for me to grab and dangle off my finger for her, though. It's _really weird_ being the target of a betta's attack (sort of; she was in fact attacking the planaria attached to my finger).
A) my laptop's network is very flaky. Sometimes connecting fine, sometimes connected but convinced that the router isn't, sometimes just plain dropping the connection. B) it is out of warrantee, c) my desktop keeps kernel panicking.
My laptop is currently backing up. I'm hoping the usb wireless card from my mac laptop will work with my current laptop. I'm hoping i can remove the files i want from my desktop machine and downgrade it to the os that used to work (windows 7).
In the meantime... I would really like to have a job already!
Oh. And the wireless printer went insane the last time i reset the router.

Since our gallon milk jugs are white plastic, and it was trash and recycle day the day after I was reminded, I went spelunking in our neighbors recycling bin... and found ~15 gallon water jugs. I shall clearly have to hunt again next week!
So after shoveling and snowblowing, yesterday was winter sowing day. First, I made drainholes and cut off the top of those water jugs. I got a bunch of dirt from Wilson Farms (sadly, this is not the time of the year they have the truly enormous bags of their own dirt), put ~3" of dirt in the bottom of each jug, soaked them in water and let them drain, planted seeds, put in a plant marker, sealed the jugs to their tops again with masking tape, and put them outside. I did this with about 10 of the jugs, and filled another three with dirt for later. I'm likely to want a _lot_ of jugs, since there are many seeds I'd like to start. Also likely to snag the larger (2 liter?) of the seltzer water bottles of galaneia's.
Currently planted: Lettuce (possibly too early), spinach, sorrel, corn salad (possibly too early), black Dinosaur kale, dwarf kale, bachelor buttons, broccoli of various types, purple podded peas.
Pending for this month: More peas, cilantro, delphinium, hollyhocks, lupine, penstemon digitalis, echineasea, colombine, Johnny jump up.
March: chard, carrots, cosmos, zinnias, marigold, basil, lettuce, nasturtium, sunflowers (this last largely to give them protection from the birds while they are growing their first real leaves)
April: tomatoes, ground cherries
Awake at 6a, also, for no apparent reason.
I may be a bit dazed today!
Driving when the world is surreal is definitely an experience.
It's surprisingly difficult to focus on driving and my surroundings in that state. Music helped.
But I'm home safe. And i don't think it's actually as cold out as i think (having had the heat blasting the entire way home), which between surreal and that make me suspect fever.
I don't know why it is that i want all the cuddles when I'm sick, but boy do i want all the people right now. All of them. Cuddle pile required! Stat!
Soon i will muster the energy to go in the house. My car's steering wheel should not be this comfortable. And probably isn't actually.
I would very much like to stop being sick, please. This month, why so much sick?
