It's time. She could barely eat or drink yesterday. Max spent the night on the bed with us, something he does not do.

Thank you, everyone, for all your help and support.

Just got ourselves set up for Convergence _25_ in Boston!

We went to NOLA for 22, but I was pregnant at the time and it was an odd weekend. Hopefully this one will be smoother, and it'll be great to return to the site of my first Convergence, 24 years later (holy crap!). Josh's folks are going to stay at our house with Lillian for the weekend (she's still in school and TX absence policies are draconian (family vacations don't count as excused)).

Recently I was a guest on the Breaking the Glass Slipper podcast. BtGS is a feminist SFF podcast that wanted to do more episodes on intersectional issues, so we talked about disability representation in SFF. You can give it a listen here!

(I will confess that I am terrible at listening to podcasts myself, but it can be so much fun to be on them--one gets into good conversations. So we'll see if I can't get better at this.)

We're preparing for 2019 Government Shutdown Mark II. This time it seems they're leaning toward no unexcepted workers on site, more like what they did in October 2013. Our contract got paid in the last couple weeks of ops, so we're good into April, though it sounds like they may not be able to keep everyone working if we're restricted from being on site (I imagine this will principally affect technicians, which is extra unfortunate), and while some folks may be able to bring work off site, they'll likely be stashed whereever there's spare room (conf rooms, etc.). Last time we were in a shrinking mode and had spare desks available, but this time we've been growing fast and most of our building space is occupied.

Hopefully the Legislative and Executive Branches can work it out before Saturday (or at least before Tuesday), but I am dubious.

- do 2 pushups, 10 air squats, and 15 situps
- evening Lillian supervision
- clear off desk chair and desk space
- clear off futon and pick sewing stuff up off office floor
- figure out where to pick up with my bathtub shelf tiling project and make a plan (realistically, the tub replacement is not on the _need_ list, and I already have most of the stuff to finish the fix I started years ago)
- put dirty dishes in dishwasher, and quickly wipe down kitchen counters, stove, & sink before bed
- lights out by 10:30

I'm not going to post all my results to the tropes quiz/analyzer thing. Mostly because I think I checked the wrong ones a couple times. That's the only reason I can think of that Actually Unrequited Pining beat out A/B/O for last place. absolutely not accurate for me. In fact I honestly like Actually Unrequited Pining sometimes (in that "oh god why am I doing this to myself" way).

But it should surprise nobody in the due South fandom that "Snowed-In Cabin/Isolated Together For Extended Period of Time" got my  number one spot. Accurate.

(if anyone has a gif of Fraser and RayK riding off into the sunset, please post it or send me the link, pretty please)
