*I'm trying out lowering my topomax dose from 75 mg to 50.

*The weather is cooler thank goodness.

*I survived a large family gathering over Labor Day.

*I called Building inspection for city of Madison; a guy is coming tomorrow to look at the AC unit.

*Forgot to link it here-- I wrote a blog post at WordPress about working on anti-harassment for WisCon; in response to Jim Hine's io9 article. He RTed it so it got a fair number of hits!

*I'm reading a long DA:I fanfic called "Stuck in the Puzzle". I don't know this fandom at all, but the fic is really good so far.

[personal profile] jesse_the_k bought me a paid Flickr account!!!

I've just tagged and organized hundreds of my photos. I'm so excited!! Observations made while tagging: a) For a self-proclaimed non-vain person, I have quite a few self-portraits! b) [livejournal.com profile] cabell eventually got her own tag. c) My horse Cassidy is the beautifulest creature in the world. Evidence below! d) I'm grateful for the photo challenges because they've got me seeing things and taking pictures in new ways, and taking pictures almost every day. I hope to extend this to writing.

Here is perhaps the best photo I've ever taken:



Many many thanks to dear Jesse the K!!!!

I have a lot of pictures from WisCon, which I've uploaded to Flickr. In light of last year's troll incident, I have locked them all unless people have indicated that unlocking is OK. So, you can add me as a contact on Flickr and I will add you back to grant access; you can have me email photos to you, or let me otherwise know what you'd like me to do or what your policy is on photos and names/identities, and that would be fabulous. I think I will make a locked post on LJ/DW with some of these photos but I'd like to know people's names policies are. If that makes sense. You can leave a comment or email me at sandphin@gmail.com.

I am really happy with some of my photos lately. This one is for "Bug's Eye" theme at The Photography Experience at LJ.



Today I finished reading The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, one of the winners of this year's Tiptree Awards. We read it for Beer and Marmalade Book Club.

All I can really say is HOLY CRAP WOW and WHEN DOES THE NEXT BOOK COME OUT?! And it was MEAN to end on a cliff hanger like that!!

I'm off to book club in a few minutes. I'm all sinus-headachey lately, boo, but super excited for WisCon!!!!!!

You know, I used to have the county fair, in my youth. It was the best week of the year. I'm kind of a joiner; I was really involved in 4-H. Not only did I participate in 20 different project areas, in was in youth leaders, an officer in the club, I did interstate exchange, state records, the communications contest, etc etc. But the county fair was the best! I showed my livestock and my different projects, got to see friends I hardly ever saw, ate fair food (ick), and roamed around the fairgrounds with free rein with my friends, all week. It was fantastic.

Well, now I have WisCon to get excited about! OK, there is no livestock, no fair food (good), but I do get to see and meet people, I get to volunteer, and I have something to look forward to every year where I can hang out with my friends and talk about stuff I love. There are similarities.
