I'm not sure how old he is, but I heard him use the word 'newfangled' one time, so he's gotta be pretty far gone.

I need the Buffistas to activate for me on twitter. Ice is up against zircon in the 2021 Mineral Cup and ice is barely holding on to its lead with 2 hours left in voting. I'm begging - please vote #IceMin for me and Yuzuru Hanyu. Vote #IceMin!

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

I am looking for a roommate for my place in Washington Heights, NYC.

Its a 12x14 quiet, sunny room with its own half-bath. Freshly (yet tastefully) renovated apartment with brand new kitchen. Elevator building. Close to parks & trains. $1250.

Our own Hil lost her mom unexpectedly a few days ago. She would love cards and kind words, though she isn't up to posting about it herself.

She will be in New Jersey for the next week with her family; the funeral is tomorrow and they will be sitting shiva after that. Send me an email if you'd like that address or her normal home address.

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

Well, I've got a preliminary diagnosis; there's "some evidence of cancer cells" in the biopsy the GYN took last week. I've got a CT scan tomorrow, another meeting with the GYN on Friday morning, and he's working on a referral to oncology.

I literally know nothing else and I'm freaking out a little. And I will take any and all prayers and healing vibes on offer.
