I'm excited that I'm "launching" thrifthorror tomorrow--putting out the note on the original Thrifthorror LJ community that my new blog is around, inviting people into facebook, &ct. I'm not quite giddy, but it's a nice feeling of anticipation.
My favorite professor passed away yesterday. This is very sad, she's a dear woman who inspired a lot of people. The service is going to be private. It's been 12 years, but I can hear her voice perfectly and I'm crying a bit now. She's a very rare gem.
I'm looking at the possibility of editing a friend's doctoral thesis. This will be a pretty massive, several-month undertaking. I'll likely be getting some modest amount of money for it, but mostly this is about the experience, and the direct and indirect good it does...and it doesn't hurt that this fellow is an absolutely phenomenal networker, and I'm still trying to get out of my current job-rut.
Work has actually been busy enough to be interesting lately. Yay!
