So [livejournal.com profile] children_of_lir has declared this to be a day for posting to your old LJ. I anticipated that, though, and have actually posted several times in the past few weeks. It's clear that my flist is far more active, though I owe that mostly to [livejournal.com profile] james_nicoll. I also have a few webcomics that I access through LJ, one of which (Phil & Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius) still has a pair of LJ groups with a lot of discussion.

Spouse is currently in the throes of the final couple of weeks of school, trying to escape with sanity intact and some semblance of health. Daughter J. starts her summer job today, and son A. really needs to get on the stick to find one of his own.

In other news, the mother of a good friend passed last night. This friend was one of the people who I met when I first encountered SF fandom/SCA lo these many years ago (coming up on 36; where does the time go?), and it was a great thing when we were able to get back in touch a few years back.

With WisCon rapidly approaching, I'm going to try to finish The Shadowed Sun in the next few days. Not that I plan on getting autographs, or anything like that, and I shall try to keep the fanboi squeeing to a minimum. It's just that I haven't read anything by N. K. Jemisin that I didn't really like.

Spouse and I visited the vampires Saturday morning, and have both recovered (although spouse's arm didn't stop bleeding right away, leading to a comment about trying to informally donate another few hundred mL). My blood pressure was down to 116/78, which is I think the best it's been since before I had my little excursion a couple of years ago. I guess the dietary changes and the exercise have been helping, even though it looks as though the whole sodium/high blood pressure link is more tenuous in the general population than previously thought.

I also got around to finishing watching the run of an odd little anime that had come highly recommended, Puella Magi Madoka Magica. A rather odd and disquieting deconstruction of the conventional mahou shoujo anime tropes. Will have to come up with something else to watch while on the exercise bike now.

There you go, Fion. Thanks for the nudge to post something, and I hope your flist takes on some semblance of its onetime activity, if only for a day.
