They are all organic seeds, they all have a price on them of 89 cents or $1.29. I'll trade them for seeds of any herb but dill (I have 3 types), grape tomatoes, and especially mint. I'm willing to give them away, especially if you want to give me some of the produce after (except the cauliflower. you can keep that). Will also be happy to take various growing things (pots, potting soil, starters, etc). Message me.

I had a migraine yesterday; I went to bed at 5pmish and woke up at 2am. which is why I am cleaning house at 4:00am. If I could start a business cleaning houses at 4am, I'd be set...I've done Laurie's kitchen at this hour twice now. I just never want to clean during daylight. Tyler once said it was living with a really unpredictable house elf (I don't clean every night, or even really consistently, but I get in these moods).
I was just out in the front room, doing a little of the fussier post-party stuff (putting new candles in the tea holders so they are ready for next time, things like that) when I noticed that the Ducky Virgin Mary has been returned to the nativity (she took a runner last night and was missing). I suspect that TJ (my roommate) found her, but I'd really rather believe it was a Christmas Miracle.
I have been reading a book on speed cleaning recently. One good suggestion it had was to put the things you use most often in a small bucket, so if you find you are needing something often, it's the bucket you grab. I extended this a little; my bucket has Pledge, Windex, a hammer and nails, a small screw collection, my powered screwdriver, some sponges, and a microfiber cloth.
I cannot currently find my bucket.

Disability and Fandom
Griffin, Sat 10:00 AM
Many fen have disabilities, and they aren't always obvious to the outside world. Are these disabilities barriers to full participation in the fannish community? What can conventions do to make sure every fan gets the full convention experience? What can all fans do to help their fellow fen who need it?

Don't assume you're telling me *anything* by posting it here. If you are inviting people to parties through LJ, you are missing me. If you need me to know about something, email me with a link to LJ, or if you are on FB, share your LJ post to it, and I will read it.
Likewise, if you are not following me on FB, you are missing most of what I say, too; I know some of you have FB issues, and that's fine, but it has become my go to of late because of the instant nature of the transmission, and because my brand of one-liners simply works better over there.
