Tweets from yesterday & today:

Sorry to say, the cuts fuck up searching, and Google advanced search is not picking up what I need from twitter so, these are no longer being hidden.

Turns out the BP gulf oilspill is actually 95k barrels a day, not 5k. Almost 20%, no big. http://bit.ly/cfo5dp (via @claytoncubitt)

Health (or lack thereof):

20:44 (Thurs) No idea if I've done one of these or not; today's 1 thing = nap, t/t Drs. & make lasagna. Still tired. Left to do: eat, more sleep. If I was awake, I was in pain and numb. #almeds

11:47 (Fri) Another day of being woken early by neighbors, this time they were vacuuming. Grumpy. Pain/numb 7/10 at waking. Now 7/8. Lunchtime. #almeds

11:51 It's been ~ 3 hours since I woke, finally able to type, hold things w/ one hand, etc. Feet numb/cold too. Today's plan: workout. #almeds

19:25 Also, workout accomplished. I hurt more, but at least it's pain I earned; I need more days where I have energy/pain spoons and am not too numb for a real workout. #almeds

"Tweaking the nipple of hypocrites in power can be dangerous." http://bit.ly/aP3PxX Nice comedic video response to Teaparty bullshit.

Student NonDiscrimination Act bans discrimination in school based on sexual orientation/gender identity http://bit.ly/cIiB83 I wish we'd had policies in place like this when I was in school, and we knew they existed; maybe then it wouldn't have been so hellish. I still would have been an outcast, but at least I might have had the courage to say something to someone.

Flash mob protests to @ladygaga tune http://is.gd/ceQhY Sweet video. LGBTQI; equal rights; fairwage.

Morning Glory http://bit.ly/bBCxMr a solar powered mechanical flower light by Wendy Legro Green art via William Gibson.

Oooh pretty art: http://coilhouse.net/2010/05/fairy-tales-by-sperber/ - reminds me of some of ego_likeness's mixed-media stuff a bit, only probably more literal.

Scientists use synthetic genome to create life (for better or worse, this one is big, guys): http://bit.ly/aVTI0S (via greygirlbeast) More on the synthetic bacteria from the BBC: news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science_and_environment/10132762.stm I love living in the future.
