Hello LJ

I've been missing you a *lot* lately. Maybe I'll visit more often now. But I tend to get lazy about these things. All I know is, FB has nowhere near your conversational skills, your ability to focus on one thing at a time, or your quiet demeanor.

I found out this morning that Jeff Haynie passed away last night. I've known Jeff since my MOC days, which seems like a really long time now. I need to do the math and figure out how long that really is. We also worked together for almost twelve years.

Anyway, I thought there may be folks here on my friends list who remember Jeff from those days, but who may not have kept up with him. The visitation is planned for tomorrow evening at Lord & Stephens in Athens, GA. The funeral is planned for Wednesday, but I don't know where or when yet.

It feels like forever since I logged into LJ. I haven't been very talkative lately, and the rare FB comments and links seem to be all I can muster. I haven't done much blog reading lately, either. However, I do think about you guys often. I hope all of you are doing OK!

I don't think the new med (Pristiq) is doing that much good for me. It's only been two weeks, so I'm holding out for a month. Then I see my doc again. I'm better in some ways, but not really more productive at work. Plus it's harder to get out of bed in the morning, I'm more anxious, and a bit irritable. But I do feel "good" in some indefinable way.

Klonopin and wine are my friends. I got my script filled today, and proceeded to wash the first pill down with a chilled glass. I'm pleasantly wobbly now. Don't worry, I'm fine. Only a 1 mg dose, and Pat is here with me. No "Less Than Zero" situations here. Or SLC Punk for that matter. Saw that recently, and liked it, BTW. Not good enough to "love" it, but it was fun.

Pat has been tasked with downloading either the first ep of Treme (no luck yet) or my favorite Farscape ep (found, but only with French subtitles). Sad. So we are settling for Eureka.

Think Track Schedule taking shape

OK, Think Track presenter folks who are on my friends list...or cyber stalking me...whatever...

There are days, times, and rooms for most of the Think Track classes. If you are a presenter, please take a look and let me know if there's anything wrong with your particular schedule. We tried to accommodate everyone, and I think we have succeeded for the most part. (Yeah, it was Beth and possibly Shelli doing that origami. I had the easy part of just sending it in.)

If you are an attendee, please keep in mind that some things may change over the next couple of days. So don't assume it's set in stone just yet. We may have to move something.

I'll email my presenters tomorrow as well, just to catch folks who aren't on LJ. But I've been in class or in traffic all day today, and I'll have to do the same tomorrow. So it will be tomorrow evening before I can focus on this.

Haha. It's possible that I've scheduled too many Think Track presentations for Frolicon. No worries, though. We will shoehorn them in somehow.

You have to admit that's a pretty kickass list. If you are bored at the con, it's your own damn fault.

Cruising Craigslist looking for possible replacements for my dead (again) Civic. Ouch, it's painful. I'm not the world's best writer, but damn. Here is an example of what's killing me.

"i have a 1995 Honda Prelude Si it has coilovers stock rims it is a 5 speed stage 1 clutch runs great but i need to trade it or sale it i would love to trade for a 5 speed 4dr car or an ext cab truck full size i just had a baby and need something bigger but you can offer away and i will look at all offers send me pics to my email Hxxx5@yahoo.com and ask questions and put the subject (prelude 95) or you can send pics to my phone and text me and if you call and i dont answer leave a message and i will call you back when i get a chance but texting is the best way to get in touch with me (678)630-xxxx please NO SCAMMERS SPAM AND I DO NOT NEED HELP SELLING MY CAR SO DONT ASK please offer away and i do have a price in mind that i want to get out of it but just offer away and we can go from there thanks"

Punctuation! Please! I can hear your voice in my head, and the fact that you didn't pause to take a breath is very disturbing to me.

xposted to FB

This thesis about female werewolves and gender is an example of the kind of geeky academic stuff I would like to have at Frolicon. We have a sprinkling of these kind of presentations, but I really want more. (MOAR!) The problem is, I don't know how to find *local* academics who are studying this kind of thing. I'm fair...ly certain there is some geeky, fannish, academiac network of folks out there, and I need to get plugged into it somehow and introduce myself to the Atlanta area members. Any ideas? Leads? Anything?
