Just had a really wonderful massage at the PCCHH. Kind of disorienting and I don't know how actually useful I'll be this evening, but I feel so much less tense that I think it's a no-brainer trade off.
And, due to various stressors in my life right now, I get to have a different / longer one next month! Blissful =)

Happy Anniversary, Love!
It amazes me how much the last couple of days of Pennsic can change my whole perception of how it went each year. Both of the last two years I had decent Pennsics with bad endings, and they left a bad taste in my mouth. This year sucked for a lot of Pennsic, but the last day or two was really pretty good and so my perception of how it went is better than I would have been willing to believe it would be as recently as this past Wednesday or Thursday.
Gonna see what I can find out quickly from reading back over my friends list, but if there's anything you think I should definitely know, please comment here =)
There was a study done in 1998 that reported a correlation between the MMR vaccine and autism. And now there is an article in a general news publication in Britain explaining the various ways in which that study was not only flawed but contained flat-out faked / altered data. Which is... just awful. There's really no word for what an amazingly awful thing this is. So many parents who thought they were doing the right thing for their children... all because this man lied for money. *sigh*
With so many parents, new parents, and parents-to-be on my friends list, I really just wanted to make sure this made it out into circulation.
Thanks to leora for pointing out the article that led me to the article I've cited.
Does anyone out there have any decent candid shots of me from that timeframe? Or even a yearbook picture they could scan in?
Subscribing is actually quite silly of me, because I'm unlikely to buy anything from it, but I've been curious about just watching the site for a while and realized I could do that without needing to remember to go check, so I did. Anyway... they apparently sometimes have a special deal thingy that I was completely unaware of called a "Woot-off" in which they keep putting up new item after new item as soon as the previous one sells out. And one of those started about an hour ago.
Besides the interesting effect of causing drastic changes in my friends page every time I re-load, I thought it might be worth sharing with folks in case anyone is still looking for tech-y presents to buy for Christmas. (Does a roomba count as tech-y? 'Cause that's what's up at the moment.) Happy shopping!
However... I am a raging liberal and I get topic/petition e-mails from MoveOn.org. This afternoon, I got an e-mail from them that presses my biggest hot-button issue _really, really_ hard. Now, I do try to check things out when I get e-mail from them, because they can be an extreme group. I checked this one out some, and I'm convinced enough to pass on the description and the petition.
( There's a re-wording proposal in front of the Department of Health and Human Services that could be read in such a way as to classify birth control as a form of abortion. )
Thank you for your time. I apologize to any who were offended.
Once I took a look at it, I actually thought it was a pretty nifty quiz. I may have answered a little more what I try to be than what I succeed at (me... punctual???). But, all in all, I thought it was nifty. And it has Alice in Wonderland illustrations =)
