Life with my feet up…

on January 15, 2009

Seriously– I actually bailed on a department meeting (to the unhappiness of my dept. head) to come home and put my feet up and on ice. Walking around the Academy of Science on Saturday had pretty much fubar’d my foot per usual, and it was getting to the point where I would stand up and… Read More

Can’t talk now, I’m proofing galleys…

on January 13, 2009

*sigh* You know that expression, “So near and yet so far?” Yeah, sometimes publishing the books is like that. I get it done (I think) and perfect (I hope) and then I get it in (huzzah) and then… They send it back to me so I can do the whole damned thing one more time…. Read More

Things I Learned at the San Francisco Academy of Science

on January 10, 2009

We went today with my parents–Goddess love them lots and lots because it was a splendid day. We learned about the earth and lemurs and lizards and rain forests and bugs… you know, the usual. We also learned a couple of unusual things–and I thought I’d share: * We learned if a kid is given… Read More

Mother’s of Geniuses…

on January 5, 2009

I’m vegging… This is a very odd week for me. Everybody has school and work EXCEPT me, and it’s just me, here with Ladybug, wondering what my life would be like if I was a stay-at-home mom. I washed dishes (woot?) sat with Ladybug on my lap a LOT, played ‘string the button’ with some… Read More

The strange case of Rabino Glen:

on January 3, 2009

In case anyone has any doubts as to how Mate and I are made for each other, this conversation was overheard in my house this morning: Me: “I had the dumbest dream last night.” Mate: “Grunt.” “No, seriously–I dreamt that some totally random girl who knew you however dropped off her boyfriend’s kid with us… Read More

My Exciting Life As a Barcalounger

on January 1, 2009

Seriously–that’s alls I gots to report. Today, I was a sofa. I was a sofa here, I was a sofa at the movies (where the Cave Troll fell asleep and Ladybug pretended to sword fight just like the big-eared little mouse) and then we came home and I was a sofa again. There are a… Read More
