Oh, Pam.  I'm so sorry.  It's so vexing to have to deal with all of the crap that goes along with RA as it is, to have it force you out of your working life is insult to injury.  I'm really glad that your organization is trying to accommodate you and find another position for you.
Last week I officially acknowledged what I can no longer do -- my current job. It was announced in my org that I was stepping down from my position as an IT manager. I'll vacate as soon as they hire a successor. I did this j...

Thanks. Things will hopefully work out one way or another. So many others have to deal with worse situations. But this still sucks.

Rather than sign up for the spammy Circle Me bullshit to get info about the GoT Props Exhibition, have the official HBO page!

(Also, Mods? Can we get rid of the spammers, please? I've already reported and blocked 'em.)

Yeah, I know, it's rough to catch 'em all. I moderate a really busy legal forum, and I always appreciate notes from my users to catch the strays.

OK, everyone, I have a favor to ask.

I have been packing up soap for the last day and a half to send to Moore, OK. I don't know if they'll hand it out to people who are staying in the university dorms or other shelters due to having lost their homes, or if they'll keep it for use by the people who are coming down to help clean up, but either way, it's bound to come in handy. 

Where you come in is this: I can send a fair bit of stuff on my own; I may not be able to spare an overwhelming amount of cash at any given time, but soap I usually have in plenty. HOWEVER, I am willing to bet they can use all the soap (bar and liquid both, and probably shampoo and conditioner and lotion, too) that they can get, so I'm offering you the chance to help me help them.

Here's how it works: Purchase any items at our Etsy store (https://www.etsy.com/shop/FoamOnTheRange) using coupon code MOOREOK, and you will receive a 70% discount on the purchase, and I will ship the items you purchased DIRECTLY to one of the donation addresses which have been provided. After your purchase, you will receive a coupon code good for 30% off a future purchase as well, to thank you for helping.

If you don't want to pick out specific items to send, use the above coupon code to buy a gift certificate (we have $10, $25, and $50 denominations) and I'll put together a donation packet of the appropriate size.

I will very likely batch multiple purchases together into single boxes for more efficient shipping. If this results in my having collected more than $10 more in shipping fees than I end up spending, I will donate the excess to the Red Cross.

Thank you for reading, and please share this post.

Oh, hey, if you see this and only reposts of blog posts, it's because you need a G+ account and need me to add you to my circles so you can see what's going on.  Add me so I can add you back. (This is here for the benefit of a couple of people I've pointed this way recently.)

Your eyes do not deceive you. This is Madonna, dressed not as an ageing pop star, but as Game of Thrones' Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen. And while she probably had some very professional help putting everything together, the end result is still pretty impressive.

My friend Amy, who is the owner and Saponifier In Chief of +Foam on the Range , just finished making a line of soaps inspired by GoT.  They are GORGEOUS!  Go look at the pretty things, and make sure to read the awesome captions.

Hey y'all, some of you haven't gotten around to making sure that when you +1 a post, it doesn't get spammed into everyone else's feeds.  

I don't wanna call anyone out by name, but I'm getting really unhappy with all the "[redacted] +1d this post", and it's scantily clad - or entirely unclad - women, or other things that you're probably not meaning for the whole world to know you're into.

If you would please:  Settings --> Manage Apps --> Google --> +1s on posts activity --> set to "visible only to me"

Thank you!

Sigh. Damn, I HATE those page-forward and page-back keys on this fricking Lenovo.

The mail came, the mail came!  YAY!

I am happy, because it was my latest box of +Foam on the Range goodness, and nice bath things always thrill me to pieces.  What can I say, these old bones really appreciate a hot soak and nice soaps and lotions!

Citrus Basil shower gel, smells so delicious!  A pile of soaps - Egyptian Musk, Dragon's Blood, Fresh Linen, Black Tea, Cedarwood and Rosemary - and Tea Tree and Lavender and Blood Orange and Ginger Shampoo bars!  AND!  Passionfruit Rose lipbalm that is so soothing and smells delightful and  eventually I'll find out how it tastes once the dogs stop licking it off.

Also, a reed diffuser that is making the dining room smell delightful, I love it!

I've heard good things about Emergen-C.  *MANY* of my fellow con-go'ers (both costuming and astro) take some with them when out on the road.
