Get Well Soon… or Be Eternally Damned!

Great car­toon from Ragged Edge. I want to get that notepad print­ed up! The mag­a­zine also has an excel­lent blog and some very good arti­cles. I just fin­ished read­ing their spot­light on invis­i­ble dis­abil­i­ties, which linked to the car­toon. There’s plen­ty of excel­lent read­ing mate­r­i­al on their site.

Dragon Con, Weekend Planning, and Back to School

I won’t be going to Drag­on Con unless a tick­et (or pass—hey, I’m will­ing to do pan­els, ya know) falls out of the air. Sam will be run­ning games and the girl will be work­ing the con, so they both got pass­es. :-)  I’d hap­pi­ly meet out-of-town­ers for lunch or some­thing, though. Jean­nie, are you still […]

Consideration for ourselves, changes in podcast format

It seems that many of us who suf­fer from fibromyal­gia and chron­ic fatigue are per­fec­tion­ists. I know that I am. One of fibromyal­gia’s hard­er lessons has been pac­ing myself and adjust­ing to chang­ing (but always low­er than before) ener­gy lev­els and con­cen­tra­tion. I know I’m not the only one who isn’t as con­sid­er­ate of myself as […]

Fantasy & science fiction art gallery

I just learned about Epi­logue, a mar­velous online gallery and com­mu­ni­ty, by way of a link from needle­work design­er and artist Tere­sa Went­zler’s blog. Went­zler’s art has just been approved for inclu­sion there. Con­grats to her! Epi­logue could eas­i­ly become anoth­er time sink!

Katie and high school

Katie is absolute­ly lov­ing school.  Well, she loves the social aspect, and the chal­lenge of inter­act­ing with new instruc­tors. She isn’t hap­py about liv­ing by a bell, and of course, all of us are adjust­ing to liv­ing on the school’s timetable in gen­er­al. At the end of the very first day, she called and asked […]

Monday: sick kid, annoying doctors

Katie is under the weath­er, and after I real­ized she’d been exposed to strep throat last week I took her to the doc­tor today. See­ing the doc­tor took far less time than find­ing a doc­tor to see. Her “pri­ma­ry care provider” as des­ig­nat­ed on her insur­ance card was­n’t in her office. No prob­lem, I did­n’t mind […]

Baptist Church Votes Not to Accept Black Members

By way of Rebec­ca Blood­’s blog, more bad news on the civ­il rights front. The North­east Mis­sis­sip­pi Dai­ly Jour­nal reports that Fel­low­ship Bap­tist Church in Saltil­lo vot­ed on August 6 not to accept black mem­bers. In doing so, they rescind­ed a pre­vi­ous invi­ta­tion to join the con­gre­ga­tion that had been extend­ed to the fam­i­ly of […]

Livejournal Crossposter and LJ as an aggregator

Live+Press works, but it gives me lots of messy error mes­sages. I don’t like error mes­sages, even if the post does even­tu­al­ly go where it’s sup­posed to go. Odd­ly, it works just fine on Katie’s site. We’re using the same ver­sion of Word­Press on the same serv­er. Very strange. So now I’m test­ing Live­Jour­nal Crossposter. […]

Bus driver orders black children to give up seats to white children

I feel like I’m stuck in a time warp. How could this hap­pen in 2006? From the Shreve­port Times, dat­ed August 24, 2006: COUSHATTA — Nine black chil­dren attend­ing Red Riv­er Ele­men­tary School were direct­ed last week to the back of the school bus by a white dri­ver who des­ig­nat­ed the front seats for white children.

SBQ: Stitching on the Road

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion is What do you keep your WIPs and oth­er stitch­ing sup­plies in when trav­el­ing? I near­ly did­n’t answer this one, because the bag is dingy! This is the dis­rep­utable bag in which I car­ry my cur­rent stitch­ing projects. Projects go in Ziplock bags inside the bag, as the bag itself has […]
