Have I really not posted since may?

My mom is still sick, the garage sale is over, aglet and the juggler are super awesome.

We went to convergence last weekend, and thanks to being disabled got to use the expedite reg line, which means that we had a great weekend.

Also aglet just fell back to sleep, so now back to bed with me!

But I'm not dead!

Who is going? Aglet will be with us, and we ate throwing a party on Friday night.
kalmn: (queenpirate)
i am going to be an age with a zero in it on friday. i've been telling people that i was that old all summer, though.

surprisingly little angst. i think the whole entoddlerification is helping with that. probably if i were not yet entoddlered i would not be able to be trusted with spoons.

but! toddler. upstairs asleep. so all is well.
kalmn: (here i am!)
dear internets.

can anyone tell if there is a streaming link here?


i found a streema site-- http://streema.com/radios/Music_FM, but all it does is say couldn't play stream.

there's always the possibility that the guangdong to minnesota streaming connection is not going to be useful because hello i am a long way from asia. but, it might be. if it can be figured out.
kalmn: (aglet)
so, this was the last weekend of the minnesota renaissance festival. the juggler has been out there every weekend, and aglet and i have been going out mostly on saturday mornings to visit. (if a person is two, a person needs a nap about 1 in the afternoon, so we left just before then.)

it went really well. i was worried about attachment and all those people and how he'd take it, but he'd be excited about "let's go see baba!", and then we'd get in the car, and then we would be out there and he'd throw juggling balls at the people at the juggling school, or help load up the trebuchet, or eat potstickers on a stick, and he had a really good time.

we are talking about all three of us being out all the time next year. this may involve figuring out where we'll sleep out there, because hell if i'm sleeping on the ground in a tent. but we'll see.

i was really worried that we'd only be able to make it out two mornings, and i had corralled my dad and my sister and her husband to go out with us, but the first time we went out with m. socks and coprock it went so beautifully smoothly that i decided to try it again the next week, just me and aglet.

he is such a good easy kid.

today we bought invitations, and thank you cards, and rsvp notes, and we've decided on a guest book, and yay.

we also have a date and a location.

going to the less happy portions, our location is awesome and small enough so that it won't fit all of our family much less all the friends we want to invite. so, it seems likely you're not invited. we pause briefly here for sniffling.

we are likely going to have a party at wiscon, and while minicon is going to be before the wedding in april, we are going to get a sleeping room there too, and who knows what could happen.
kalmn: (here i am!)
since we last heard from our heroine, her lovely and charming aglet caught strep, started meds, got better, she returned to work but only for one day (dun dun dun), because she caught strep from her dear aglet, she had two days off of work too miserable to do anything, she returned to the clinic saying hey, what's up, and they said looks like the butt shot didn't fix you up, let's give you some horse pills to swallow on an extremely sore throat instead.

the horse pills are working. back to work with me tomorrow. i feel ten thousand percent better, which means just tired and a little sad, rather than too exhausted to stand up and miserable.

so! hurray for augmentin.

in other news, there are massive protests going on at a hotel i was recently in in guangzhou, china, because the japanese embassy is in the same building, and there is an island problem going on between china and japan right now. (i do not know details, but people are mad. i do not say this to minimize it; you should go google if you want an idea about what's going on.) they broke into the hotel, did some damage to the first two floors. whoa. the garden is the most beautiful hotel i have ever been in in my life. i expect it will be fine after some cleanup, but i'm glad we're not there right now!

tomorrow, i go pretend like i'm awake enough to be at work. i expect i will go to bed shortly after the aglet does, and then get up shortly before (so i can shower before he's up and at 'em). onwards!

if a person wants to go to ExCeL in London's Docklands, which airport should a person fly into? i realize that a person with patience could fly into any of them, but i will have patience and also toddler.

woke up at 6am. my phone was making noise. i think it was an event alarm, that alarm being that i am on call all week. this means that i've slept through this for the past several days.

yet today? 6am! wakey wakey! wide awake. laid in bed for half an hour and then got up. have been dorking around on the internet for a bit, but soon i will shower and get dressed and leave the house. oh boy.

why am i awake? my alarm doesn't even go off for half an hour!
kalmn: (no no no!)
trying to make packing lists, since it's seeming like we'll be headed to china very shortly. (no exact dates yet; we should know those next week.)

brain will not focus. brain wants to look at the internet. brain wants to get distracted by stupid stuff. stupid brain.

russian names are very strange from an english speaking standpoint. nicknames, in particular.

natasha, for example, is a nickname, in russian. for natalya.

natka is an even shorter version. or natusik. or natul'ka. or even natashka, apparently.

tasha is not a nickname for a russian woman named natasha. it just isn't. dear fic writers, please stop using it now. throws me out of the damn story every time.

(sasha, the story you linked was good otherwise.)

i am cleaning out the closets and since it's less than a month (omgwtfbbq) til wiscon, i am putting it into bags and putting it into the trunk and bringing the crap to wiscon. er, i mean the awesome stuff i don't wear. because it is awesome. i just don't wear it.

women's clothing, 2-3x, 22 or 24. higher femme, dress up stuff. dresses and jackets and some skirts.
men's clothing, 2x, some xl. flannel and stompy stuff. mostly shirts.

if you are thinking oh, i would bring AWESOME FATTY CLOTHING stuff to the clothing swap if only i were local, and you have some money to throw at this problem, you can ship me stuff, and i will throw it in my trunk and drive it there.

there needs to be more fatty clothing at the clothing swap. so we can all look super awesome in new to us clothes.

(i'm serious about the driving it there offer-- if you're interested, drop a comment and i'll get you my address. you don't have to clean out your closets, but if there are one or two "oh, this awesome piece should go to someone who would wear it more...", it would be pretty cheap for you to ship it. or, hey, send me a big box.)
