Trade list April 2009

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Yes, we’re all a little broke or at least cagey with our spending these days. That doesn’t mean we’re resourceless! I have a long list of items to trade for another long list of items I want below. I’d like to trade for roughly equal values, but I’m open to stretching the [...]

Voice back, now for the energy level…

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Tree pollen season has ebbed enough to allow me to speak again. Unfortunately, that took a whole week, and this week I’ve been crashing around 2pm each day. I’m not entirely sure if I’m fighting off some lowgrade something or if I’m backsliding after the first stressor after the antivirals have well and [...]

For new listeners, the “best of” lists

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Particularly for new listeners who want to hopscotch through the archives to get a feel for the show, I have selected 5 episodes from each year that seemed of most enduring interest. The links go to the permanent pages of the episodes, which have the download and player buttons for the mp3.

Year 1, March [...]

Stitches West notes from 2009

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

For future reference of myself and other yarn enthusiasts, here are my notes from Stitches West 2009, while my head can still remember the context of all my scribbles, etc.
Patterns: White Lies Designs (.com) “Celebrating Shapely Women” had some really lovely tops/cami’s. Sadly, I am more on the lithe than the shapely side by [...]

February 2009 trade list

Lucrezia Heterodyne costume for sale

Lucrezia Heterodyne costume for sale by broke GBACG member (as posted to the GBACG)
This costume was worn to Costume Con 26 in San Jose, but now I need to raise money for 2009 gifting craft supplies. I hope another fan can use it for the upcoming PEERS Girl Genius dance in April, Wondercon and [...]

My iRiver is dead. All hail the iRiver.

Friday, January 9th, 2009

The warning signs didn’t lie. Poor ol’ thing’s HD doesn’t even hum a bit when trying to power up. *sniff* It was a lovely lil box while it lasted. I had just recorded 2 things for other folks and transferred them to my PC, so you may hear my voice elsewhere [...]

Why I’m not Magpie-ing my Twitterstream

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

Last night, my husband gave me the one good argument for not doing magpie on my tweet stream that might exist. Some of the people following my tweetstream are those of whom I am a fan, and I probably derive more joy from their slight electronic presence in my life than I would from the [...]

I quit my job today

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

My last day is October 15. Everyone was very nice about it.
It feels entirely odd; I’ve never quit a job without having already lined up my next job or school or a massive move. It’s the health thing. I’ve now been fighting this thing for 20 months. The medical leave taught [...]

DragonCon pics from other peoples’ Flickrs

Monday, September 29th, 2008

I think I earned the name “Steampunk Ambassador” for all the times I explained “about all the goggles this year” to people. Here are the photos of my costume’s final version from other people’s Flickr sets. If you know of/took other photos of my costume, please send me a link! [...]

Steampunk Catwoman trial run pics

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Here are some pictures of this year’s DragonCon costume. Per the experienced costumer’s tradition, I always test the whole ensemble before the event. In this case, I discovered 2 breakages which were easy to remedy at home but would have been difficult in Atlanta.

League of Justice-Minded Citizenry, beware! The promenade also displays less lofty [...]

Review of the fatigue specialist visit

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

(cross-posted from my LJ, but I thought people here might want to know) And yes, the next podcast is coming out soon, just as soon as I’m done with this lovely bug my husband brought home…
So, the CFS specialist I saw in LA about 2 weeks back… This was a mixed bag. If you [...]

Why TASCF has been silent.

Friday, August 1st, 2008

agh, what a month (reposted from my LJ: ChrisFixedKitty)
I’m going to save the LA CFS specialist report for after the phone followup next week. Might as well do it all in one piece then. That visit used up the first week of my medical leave in the doing of it and the recovering [...]

Bravewolf, you got it!

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

As the only response, you get your way!
I’ll try some carcasting to get the intro done. I’ve been sleeping 12 hours/night plus naps this weekend, so the usual Fixed Kitty cheer is finally back! I am not currently sounding like a Zombinc. employee! (Mur L has a rockin new [...]
