The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

It is presently icing/sleeting outside and has been for now going on 12 hours. Schools are already delayed two hours tomorrow morning with "morning reevaluation," which means that they're at least considering closing altogether. I can always use a snow day; I always have stuff to do. I finished the short article based on my Mythmoot presentation and turned it in yesterday; today was the SWG newsletter; tomorrow could be revising and turning in my article on the SWG for the Signum University Eagle. That would put me in a really good place. So ... *crosses fingers*

It's March One, so ... B2MeM! I think probably everyone here who is Tolkienish has heard about it, but if you have not, check it out. It's a great event this year, which I can say without feeling like I'm tooting my own horn since I am not running it this year and had almost nothing to do with planning it: a marketplace format, where participants "sell" and "buy" prompts using imaginary coin. There are many, many excellent prompts. As a mod, I get an email for every comment left on mod posts, and I was reading all of the prompts as they came in but stopped because I was wanting to buy everything that came in.

I went to register for my last class before the thesis (Romantic and Industrial Revolutions) on Friday, and it doesn't start till April, so I have another month off from for-credit coursework. This means that I should be able to get a big jump on my reading. It will probably mean that I dick around with B2MeM, thesis research, and other fannish things instead. I should at least download the syllabus so that I can at least pretend I'm going to do something with it.

Because there's nothing better to do on an "ice day" than play with green, living things, I showed some love to my houseplants today, and Bobby and I started the year's tomato and pepper seeds. My succulents are all throwing off baby plants since I've been doing better with fertilizing them properly; I need to re-pot these and then find new homes for them. Otherwise I'll be like the Duggars of succulents; I already have several baby aloe plants that I was supposed to give away years ago. I just get attached and don't want to give them away.

All in all, this was a pretty dull weekend, but productive. I'd love to extend it to a third day!

  • Hope you get your snow day!

    OMG! I think I am getting a bad cold from Alex, who has had one for over a week.
    • We got it! It was awful out this morning; they'd closed schools by 6 AM. But now it's warmed up and the ice is melted, so we still get to go to lunch and to the mountain. Thank you, Mother Nature! :)

      Ugh on the cold ... I hope it's one of those that tries to come on and never quite makes it. This is the first year in a long while that I haven't had a cold in the winter *touch wood* even with Bobby's new job working with 100+ germy kids!
  • I want a snow/ice day tooooooooooooooooooo I honestly can't remember a day where schools here were closed for a school day. *pouts*
    • Snow days are definitely one of the advantages of living here! We live far enough north that we get at least some snow/winter weather every year, but we're still a Southern state, so we don't really have the means to deal with it, so when we do, then schools tend to shut down. A little further south and winter weather would be rare; a little further north and we'd have the means to deal and so wouldn't get a day except when conditions became extreme. We live in a wonderful happy medium. :)
