Boston planning [Nov. 25th, 2009|10:44 am]
eowyn
I was planning to be back in Boston on Friday for hanging out/games with chenoameg and ringrose but they're calling that off on account of desperate need of sleep (yay having a baby!). Does anyone else have games/food plans for Friday? (And want to invite me).

And for those interested in fabric shopping in Boston - when would you like to go? I was thinking about Saturday during the day but I can easily alter these plans. I'd really like to go to the fabric store that's near where Mars music used to be (oh the new england way of giving directions...). I think it's called (looks up on Google) Sewfisticated Discount Fabrics - and google gives the address as on McGrath. Last time I was there (3+ years ago) they had some great deals on wool, which is what I"m really in the market for. I remember there also used to be some fabric stores in the downtown area (which would be nice to walk through just for the nostalgia, too). So who is in, when can you go, and where do you want to go?

Boston! [Nov. 24th, 2009|08:59 am]

I've made it safely to the east coast, and caught up on my sleep! Except for already missing my cat, life is good.

San Antonio and arm pain [Oct. 25th, 2009|09:40 pm]
eowyn
I've made it safely to Texas (San Antonio to be specific) with enough time to catch up on sleep and wander around a bit before the conference starts tomorrow morning. So I checked into the hotel, dropped my stuff, and wandered around a bit seeing the Alamo and a bit of the Riverwalk. Despite being told by the cab driver that the cost of living here is low I notice that the restaurants around here are a bit pricier than I'd normally go to. If anyone has recommendations of restaurants in downtown San Antonio please let me know (there are a *lot* of restaurants around here, and I'm around for another 5 days/ 4 nights).

In unrelated noticings something is apparently wrong with my shoulder. I think it was fine this morning when I left San Diego but I was so tired I might not have noticed. Walking around this afternoon I was starting to have trouble with any motion in my right arm (even with no weight on the arm and the hand not doing anything but hanging down). Some limited mobility tests seem to tell me that pain happens more acutely when the arm is rotated backwards or too far up and forwards. It hurts enough that if I were in San Diego I'd go to the urgent care at Student Health, but I"m not there at the moment. My current plan is to ignore it (well, try to not do anything with the arm and hopefully it won't hurt more and I won't be doing anything to damage it). This is made harder by just now being woken up with arm pain. Does anyone out there have medical experience and want to let me know if there's something you think I should be doing? I'm getting more worried that something might be broken - does this mean I should find a local emergency room or something? Is there anything they'd do other than put it in a sling and tell me not to use it? I've never dealt with something like this (by which I mean anything being wrong with my body) when away from home so I don't know what to do... I'd really appreciate some advice.

maybe I'm actually not feeling well and that's why I'm not getting anything done. I do seem to be sleeping too much and my throat is feeling scratchy this morning... but I'm really afraid I'm just making excuses for myself.

craftiness [Sep. 7th, 2009|02:49 pm]
eowyn
It feels like it was ages ago that I posted about the 'sign up and I'll make you a gift' meme (or something like that). I've finally finished (well, mostly - at least the hard parts) of the projects I decided to do for the two people who signed up. I'll be bringing the things with me when I go to Boston to visit in November. So kelkyag and lokiect, you both need to make sure to see me when I'm in town!

While I'm on a roll, would anyone else like to sign up for a mystery gift? I may or may not get things done by the end of this calendar year - but I've been having a great time learning some new crafts and I'm happy to find excuses to try something new! And if you think I'm supposed to be making something for you already - please remind me! My brain isn't the stable of things around, you know...

Actually - would anyone be interested in forming some sort gift exchange circle for the holidays? I'm happy to deal with organizing if there's enough interest...

up and down [Aug. 25th, 2009|12:44 pm]

I woke up this morning feeling happy and well rested (yes, I slept in - but the excuse was that I'd been out late last night at a friend's thesis defense party). Pet the cat for a bit, then got up and got dressed and ready for school, and had breakfast. Since then I've been feeling steadily worse - centered around my tummy feeeling unhappy. Grump. Why can I not seem to have a healthy Tuesday? I've been fine followed by increasingly sick Tues-Wed, recovering Thurs, and okay again on Fri. for the past _3_ weeks. This is ridiculous!

For San Diego locals [Aug. 4th, 2009|03:50 pm]
eowyn
Planning a part for Saturday late afternoon/early evening. There will be wine, and food-stuffs, and hopefully people and good times. If I'm forgetting to invite anyone let me know.

If any non-SD folks happen to be in town this weekend you're definitely invited - just let me know!

Back in San Diego [Jul. 23rd, 2009|12:10 pm]

I'm back from my workshop at Stanford. It was nice to get to see a few friends up there and certainly interesting to go to a workshop on solar physics (and filled with solar physicists). Still, I am incredibly happy to be home!!

Completely unrelated to this workshop - it looks like I may be getting a floor loom from someone giving away theirs. Loom! (The weaving kind here, but the tone of voice still applies!)

Loom!

Apparently I'm going to Stanford for a workshop early next week. Hey people in the bay area - is this close enough for me to be able to see you?
