They took an innocent panda and turned it into an assassin! June 2, 2010

I keep posting little personal updates on Facebook, but not having anything substantial enough to make an actual post. So let me summarize.

–Graduation! A big deal. Ann Curry’s research!fail has since made Jimmy Fallon, NPR (panel two). I did get the correct diploma, although it looks substantially less expensive than the plaque I got in middle school for being good at math.

–I have since had 3 dreams (and counting) about being back at Wheaton. Apparently my subconscious doesn’t believe they’ve really let me go.

–Last weekend: Balticon! Friday through Monday, a moderately-sized and well-funded sci-fi convention. The artist guest of honor was the guy who does Schlock Mercenary. The food was free, decent (including cereal and bagels as well as cheese, chips, and chocolate, plus a variety of teas), and kept coming. And the panels and programming were delicious.

–Also, the whole family dressed up in homemade costumes from the Red Dwarf episode “Quarantine.” Twitter has a shot of my brother, complete with Mr. Flibble. We got laughs, applause, and multiple requests for photos, especially when all together. Good times.

–I discovered, and became a huge fan of, Better Off Ted. It’s funny and clever and quirky and geeky and the characters are delightful. (A Veronica: I want one.) As it turns out, it was canceled three weeks ago. I object.

–OMGWTFDANCEOFF.

–This weekend: A-Kon! Friday through Sunday, though I fly out to Texas tomorrow. All in the name of promoting the first issue of Emeralds.

–I really need to get my act together and make a classy This Is How To Commission Me page.

–Next week: seventh anniversary of Shine! So, naturally, I’ve blown through almost thirty pages of The Eagle of Hermes over the past week, rather than putting together a Special Commemorative Anniversary Thing. Maybe I can call EoH the Special Commemorative Anniversary Thing.

Fun links and fireflies May 28, 2008

I’ve ushered four fireflies out of the house so far this evening. (I sure hope it was four fireflies, rather than one very determined one.) Luckily, they don’t have good enough reflexes to avoid being caught.

News roundup (wow, I’ve been sitting on some of these for a while):

A bunch of studies about language, and specific ways in which it helps you perform. Fun fact: many languages don’t distinguish between “blue” and “green”. Meanwhile, Russian (and Italian) have words for “blue” and “blue” (a distinction that English doesn’t make).

The NYT profiled xkcd. Is that cool or what?

And a recovering blogging junkie lays out her story. Seriously . . . this is pretty heavy stuff. I’m going to be thinking about it for a while.

That said, I’ll end on a note of silly-yet-righteous indignation: Stop Making Movies About My Books, by Dr. Seuss (in the Onion, naturally). I want to smack the author for writing lines that scan so badly; on the other hand, I agree with every word.
