An Announcement

I never truly believed this day would come, but the need to continually produce fresh sentient alloys is at an end. There can be no doubt. All the phosphorescences are pulsing in tandem. All the signs are there.

Frankly, I am almost glad of it. It's just too heavy a burden to catalog all our successes and failures, and continually find new directions for the project. And my chiropractor thinks all the threshing is causing me to develop tendonitis of the nth pseudo pod.

But what does all this mean to you? It means that you're hereby released from your obligation to collect those spores we discussed. I know you've spent countless nights refining your sensory organs and honing your extraction methods, so perhaps this isn't so much a relief as a bit of a disappointment. But the times are changing, and I hope you can adjust.

Updates as events warrant.

Now what the hell am I going to do with all that fungi we tampered with on a genetic level down in my basement?

Sigh. I guess I can just eat them and find out what happens. At least then I won't have to listen to their screaming all night long anymore.

Hmm. Ingestion might be an extreme solution. I'd suggest drying, grinding and then mixing the powder with elderberry resin. That should make it smokable, or at least result in an incense suitable for the Lesser Scarlet Rites.

You could go here for additional suggestions.

Not really. Me = "joiner". I'm not a meme girl, but this looked like such fun!

Well, at least this means I can follow my life-long dream of performing illicit close-harmony tensor calculus for discerning -- and nubile -- lenscrafters.

Let me know about the 401K, though?

You are welcome to keep your 401(k) assets in the plan for the time being. I'd recommend setting up a conduit IRA, however, in the event that you might want to roll them over to a future employer's plan. Research opthamologists are notoriously inclined to prefer 403(b) plans, and we'd hate for you to have to take a mandatory distribtion.

What?

Oh. Your Earth retirement plans. Yes.

Not a particular e-document of that filesize, no, not at all.

Okay, then. I will endeavor to conduit said to the Irish Renaissance Army, as you suggest.

My most enthusiastic contrafribularities,

The fissionable harvesters are going to be pissed, you know. They'll probably contravene the laws prohibiting their right to gather again and then there'll be the inevitable critical mass and subsequent atomic riot.

Well, they can take it up with Harvesters Local 23. Maybe they can pound their umbel-shears into weathervanes.

This is beautiful. I never knew you were a writer, isn't that strange? This reminds me of something from spacemummy's world, only with a delicate beauty that is unique to the voice you are using.

Thanks so much, sweetie. Your kind words sooth me.

It's a bitch to try to have fun in late January. Everyone seems determined to hang onto their bad moods, which I can kind of undertand. January is cruel, and you need all the protection you can get.

And I used to be a writer, but I had it kinda crushed out of me long ago. You know, all those Gray-faces out there who tell you that nothing you have to say could ever be of interest to anyone else. It makes a person pretty shy of letting anyone see inside. ::wan smile::

I'm having a pretty excellent January, myself. Maybe I should post more. I haven't really wanted to crow too much, since it seems like a jinx, but eh, fuck that!

And I can identify with that last paragraph more than you maybe know. Anyway, it's never too late to begin again. I make a false start or two every day or so, and someday the rusty old machine will hack itself hack to life.

Very happy your January is good!

I keep meaning to write more, but I'm pretty scared about it. I wrote a 100 word drabble in November, and I wrote this today. Maybe I am sloooowly getting myself reaquainted with the process? I hope so.

I want to link to this in my journal and pretend I know what you're talking about so all my friends think I'm a genius.

But then they'd see this comment and realize, "ehhh... not so much really."

D'oh! ;)

C'mon now. You know very well that we would never have gotten the operation off the ground without your research into autophilous sigmoids! I'll never forgot how you bravely risked your spleen function in the hothouses that summer when the Aglo vines got all humifuse.

Nobody like false modesty, you know ;)
