|09:04 pm - my pants, they are bankrupt|
I am so far behind on friendslist that I have lost track of how far behind I am. This is owing partly to having gotten a new laptop and lost the reminder tabs, and partly to general busy-ness and forgetfulness.
Working on catching up now, but I don't expect to be able to get all the way back. :( Friends, if I missed any major announcement since the beginning of November, please to let me know?

Ugh, you guys, I have gotten so bad at posting to LJ/DW. And even at staying caught up on flist. I blame tumblr. In part at least. (Though I'm also currently failing at NaNoWriMo, so I dunno.)
Posts I should be making:
- A poll: should I link tumblr posts here the way some people do tweets? Is this a thing that might interest people?
- Belated OVFF con report
- Chessiecon anticipation (I've got one co-moderated song circle with Tom Smith, one concert with ladymondegreen as The Funny Things, and one solo concert)
- Recent recipes successes: sugar-free plum jam with rosemary, chicken with peaches and balsamic vinegar, gluten-free bread made with flaxseed meal and oat flour, tomato-and-red-lentil crock-pot soup
- Why I'm failing at NaNo
Maybe I should try this December Talking Meme thing. Or a variation on it.

Tonight is the first night of Sukkot. Zman simchateinu; the time of our rejoicing.
I will be off the internet between now and Saturday night. Chag sameach to all those celebrating; happy everydays to everybody else.
Take care, all. <3

Tonight is the first night of Rosh Hashanah, the two-day Jewish New Year, first of the autumn holidays. As usual, in mundane terms, this means don't expect to see me online between now(ish) and Saturday night.
In spiritual terms: the year has come to a close, and as always, the next ten days will be our annual performance review.
It's been a rough year in a lot of ways, for a lot of people that I love, and for a lot of people that I will never meet.
Let the year and its curses conclude, we say, and let the year and its blessings begin.
Amen, amen, amen.

Dear self: next time you make a post about being gone for three days for the Northeast Floating Filk Con, it'd probably help if you made sure it actually posted before closing down your computer.
Aaaanyway. Hi, internets! sdelmonte and I are back from Contata! Where we got to hang out with and sing with and listen to a bunch of awesome people and excellent musicians, in between and around helping run the thing.
(And now: naps.)

|10:44 pm - Balticon!|
So hey, fellow filker types: who's planning to do Balticon this year?
I ask because I maaaay have a concert slot and might possibly be looking for some backup. >.>

It is a momentous day in my personal history, friends.
Yes, today is the day I finally won at 2048.
Today I am a math god.
(Tomorrow I will go back to squinting in abject bafflement at household finances, but TODAY I AM A MATH GOD.)

|10:41 pm - RP meme (all the cool kids were doing it)|
From all over: Comment with one of your RP characters and one of mine. I will make up the worst AU I can think of.

|07:18 pm - home fom weekend; bankrupt pants|
We are home from Boskone and from my cousin's bar mitzvah! Will make an honest effort to catch up on things, but it may take me a day or two.
A proper con report may or may not be forthcoming; for the moment, suffice it to say that I got to see and hug a lot of amazing people, make a new friend or two, meet a few authors whose works I have loved for years, and sing with a kickass crowd of filkers. And then of course, at this morning's bar mitzvah, I got to see and hug a lot of family members I don't get to see nearly often enough, including a bunch of very very small ones.
Hoo boy do I need sleep.
