Owwww ow ow

I don't know why I'm so tired today... I did sleep from 4 to 11! My hands are all stiff and sore like they get sometimes. Just took a cat nap on the futon, with Gromit lying on my hip, also taking a nap. I think coffee would be a good idea, or more food, just for energy's sake. For now I'm just going to try and do a bit of work, then maybe around 3 wash my hair and then go to Tesco. Wonder how many times it will snow and then stop snowing. *Yawn*

Wendy @ Lunacon

Got my schedule for what panels I'm doing at Lunacon / Grissecon next month. It seems I am just indispensable or something, since I'm on 10 panels in 2 1/2 days! Somebody please make sure there is coffee available?

Anyway, here is my schedule:

Wendy Darling
Fri 6:00pm - 7:00 pm - Ways of the Wyrd: Magic, Myths and the Unseen
Fri 10:00pm - 11:00pm - Breaking Taboos: Androgynies, Gender and Sexuality in Fantasy
Sat12:00am – 1:00am – Bondage in Belmont (Belmont)
Sat 11:00am – 12:00pm - Seeing is Writing: The Visionary Author
Sat 1:00pm - 2:00pm - Immanion Press and the Dark Satanic Mills of Publishing
Sat 2:00pm – 3:00pm – FanFiction 101 (Saratoga)
Sat 4:00pm - 5:00pm - Theft or Flattery: The Truth about Fan Fiction
Sat 6:00pm - 7:00pm - Playing God: World Building for Genre Fiction and Role-Playing
Sat 7:00pm – 7:30pm – Reading (Board Room)
Sat 8:00pm - 9:00pm - The Infernal Word: The Magical Power of Language

BTW, that panel at midnight on Friday? I have no clue why I'm on that. Description is: "How do you make sadomasochistic characters respectable? If you write about bondage, do you have to get all the knots right? How does polyamory work? A guide to everything a writer needs to know about alternative sexuality." I feel quite qualified to talk about 'alternative sexuality' and polyamory, but bondage? Aside from owning my own riding crop and familiarity with abusive relationships, er, I'd say that's really not my bag. Nothing against it just... why me? Hopefully I can get somebody (one of Don Hardy's friends maybe?) to sub for me here.

The AP is floating a story about Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney posssssibly (although he won't comment) considering a run for predent in 2008. Note: Romney is a Republican. While I perhaps would have supported ex-Gov. William Weld (also a Republican) as president, since he was practically a Democrat, Romney is a turd. He's still trying to de-legalize gay marriage in the state. And his name is Mitt. Booh.

About the only positive is... the idea of a Republican from Mass. would confuse the hell out of everybody.

While I can't say there's been any accumulation (and any that does build up melts 10 minutes after it stops), in the past couple of days, Stafford has been hit with snow flurries over and over. It'll be sunny out, then in a couple minute go dark, then snow, then the sun will come out *with* the snow, then go away, then the snow stops, sun comes out again, etc. Very odd. Meanwhile it's kinda of cold out (34 F) but not too bad.

BBC report on weird weather, blames Scandinavian wind

Of course, I just checked Atlanta's weather and it's 65 F. Do I miss it? Not really.
