Today I ordered my wedding ring and put down the deposit on the tent rental. Less than three months to go!

So I was that person in the office who was watching the SpaceX launch today. Who threw her hands in the air when the go for launch was given. And laughed at the Don't Panic in the roadster in SPACE.

It was AWESOME and inspiring and wow. Just wow.

I'd like to know who Elon Musk's favourite Bond villain is, so we can plan accordingly.

@ScottRoche Some favorite story-related podcasts: Escape Pod (#sf); Podcastle (#fantasy); Pseudopod (#horror); Glittership (#queer #sff); Flame On! (comic/movie/game/#drag fandom); Black Tribbles: Prime (#poc fandom), Gutter Talk (comic fandom), Micheaux Mission (black #cinema review), etc; Free Planet X by @Planetx (category-defying); Raven & Writing Desk by @authorchrislester (future-tech magic mashup); Steal the Stars (mercs UFO paranoia). Enjoy.

Very excited for tonight's Starfinder game. The PCs went off the map last week, so I've had to improvise. Hopefully they don't get themselves killed getting out of the mess they're in.

Having a late breakfast at Panera after my doctor's appointment this morning. If you've never had your ear flushed out, it is a singularly odd experience. The nurse removed a waxy blockage about half an inch long from my ear canal, which answers the question of why my ear felt congested.

This Is Just To Say Show more

I got my taxes done today, though I have to wait until next week to file them because two of the forms aren't ready yet. Quicken Self-Employed is a godsend for writers and other creative types.

I've been thinking about what I want my social media experience to be, especially on FB. I've concluded that the less time I spend looking at news on there, the happier I am. It may be time for a wholesale purge of the pages I follow.

I've been here for four hours and have yet to actually start testing. Yeah, it's gonna be one of those days.

I was cleaning up and found a tiny briefcase with some kind of blue crystal inside? No idea what this is or what it's from. Best guess: Somewhere a mouse cleric is missing their holy symbol.

TIL:

“If tea spread to your country by sea, you call it ‘tea’. If by land, you call it chai.

(*This is because the ports of Fujian and Taiwan use the coastal pronunciation ‘te’, whereas Mandarin uses chá.)”
