Aurora alert (maybe)

A coronal mass ejection is heading for Earth!

But that's a good thing. It may well mean auroras. You don't have to know much about atmospheric sciences or geomagnetics to know that today's chart of the planetary K-index, which is a good aurora indicator, definitely looks dramatic. (The bars are red! They're going up high!) Keep an eye on Spaceweather.com for details. Wow, Seattle is even supposed to have clear skies tonight. Incredible.

In other good news, I got a request to see the full manuscript of my Seattle-ghost-story novel, from one of the agencies I talked to at the writers conference in July. Stroke a rabbit's detached foot for me. Perform voodoo if that's more your style.

In lesser news, I am so tired. Lemondrop must be on a growth spurt or something. Or else it's all the socializing over the past weekend, and then Steve traipsing off to North Carolina for work right after that.

Then again, in 17 days we fly to Maui, so how bad could things really be right now? And I have dark-chocolate cheesecake in the fridge. Mmm.

P.S. Perfume note: under the lapel of my jacket today, I dabbed some Chanel Coco, and a bit of lavender fragrance oil. The mix is surprisingly good. The lavender grounds the Chanel nicely. Damn Chanel always smells good, though. Which I suppose is why it costs as much as plutonium.

...which is in fact the extent of information I got from that chart. Thank goodness for universal color coding.

You seriously crack me up without trying. Quit it--this is a public computer lab, and I'm already on my last warning. (Inappropriate displays my arse...) ;)

It's one of those ridiculously unneccissarily awkward sort of places: you konw, all clean and white, many students crammed in together, and NO TALKING! I'm sure I COULD laugh and no one would yell at me, but it would feel like a capital offence.
