It has been brought to my attention that my LiveJournal content has been a bit, well, devoid of content lately. In order to remedy this sad state of affairs, I bring you: [livejournal.com profile] goldenmean.

Joshie 2 (vignette)

We've known each other for a couple of years, and some months ago we realized we've fallen roly-poly, pell-mell, tumble-bumble into something unexpected and rather marvelous.

This happy occurrence has also given me the opportunity to hang out with his amazing sister [livejournal.com profile] fairyarmadillo, among other lovelies. His mum and dad are pretty smashing as well.

I shall endeavor to make my updates more update-ish in future. However, prep for Maker Faire has been eating my brain. It promises to be an extraordinary ride.

See us at Maker Faire!

The Etsy Steam Team and Theriaca Fina will be vending at Maker Faire - Bay Area 2009. Visit us in the Carnivale Mechanique exhibit area.

I've always loved this song, now imbued with new meaning. The original video is enchanting as well.

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

Fidelity (Regina Spektor)

I never loved nobody fully
always one foot on the ground
and by protecting my heart truly
I got lost in the sounds
I hear in my mind
all these voices
I hear in my mind
all these words
I hear in mind
all this music
and it breaks my heart

Suppose I never ever met you
suppose we never fell in love
suppose I never ever let you
kiss me so sweet and so soft
suppose I never ever saw you
suppose you never ever called
suppose I kept on singing love songs
just to break my own fall

Just to break my fall

All my friends say
that of course it's
gonna get better...

Add your voice.
  • 09:44 I have the best freekin' friends EVAR. I've a broken jaw, I'm on enough drugs to kill a horse, and they still make me laugh and feel loved. #

Freylich pesach!

[livejournal.com profile] tutordennis took me out to the Wax Museum at Fisherman's Wharf recently. It was awesome. They had an hysterical Jewish exhibit, which included the above maniacal rendition of Moses née Charlton Heston. Nearby was a sign saying, "The restrooms are located just past the Last Supper." Also, the disciples were in the wrong places around the table, leading me to wonder about all the excellent possibilities for wax museum practical jokes. Other blurry cameraphone photos are here.

I am really very glad that [livejournal.com profile] karenbynight and [livejournal.com profile] soof are in our lives. They're both so sweet to [livejournal.com profile] tutordennis, and are unfailingly respectful, thoughtful and kind. In short, I adore you guys!

My orthognathic surgery draws nigh. (Original post here.) It's been scheduled for 9 June. On one hand, it's that much closer to being over. The whole process (oral surgery, orthodontia, plus the operation itself) will take over a year by the time it's done, and it will be wonderful when it's finally all behind me. On the other hand, eek! They're going to take a bone saw to my skull and elongate my mandible with a bone graft! I'll be in the hospital for three days and off work for three weeks. Someone has to be with me around-the-clock for the first week home, I can't lift over 10 lbs. for four weeks, and I'll be on a liquid diet for six weeks. It will be another six months before they remove these accursed braces, which are seriously cramping my style on several fronts. On the plus side, I will most likely get lots of happy drugs. I'll find out more about the recovery process at my pre-op appointment on 30 May.
