If anyone in Canada or Australia is willing to buy me a Barbie sized Luisa doll from Encanto and ship it to me before Christmas, please email me at my profile addy. They don’t appear to make it in the US and I can’t get any of the Australian or Canadian stores to ship it to me. ltc is confident that Santa can get her one.

Hello Buffistas! If any American Buffistas happen to be going out on Record Store Day, and would be willing to help me out. I'm looking for the vinyl release of Prefab Sprout's Steve McQueen. If anyone spies it in their shop, I'll happily cover the price and shipping to me in Canada.

Thanks!

You know how I said I'm planning to come and visit in 2024? There might be a war going on here and it's very hard to imagine a vacation or anything fun right now, but planning has to start somewhere. That somewhere is a googledoc in my profile.

Hiya.

Just a reminder to sign up for the holiday card exchange if you'd like to participate this year... some love from around the world-ish might lift spirits some, I'm thinking.

True confession: I won't have a sec to run the sorrting program until tonight at about 8p E, so there's still time if you'd like to sign up for holiday cards.

Depending on where you're reading this, see post above or below for the link.

I'll get the emails out to folks with your individual list over the next few days (all done by 12/1).

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

This week I completed the requirements for certification through the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals as a Frontline Supervisor.

Well. I completed the work last week, but they issued the certificate this week.
