Random Updatery

Memo to self: insulin is a wonderful drug, one which is much more effective when you remember to take it.  Sigh.  It’s been ages since I’ve seen a number that high on my glucose meter.  (402 if you’re curious, with normal being around 80-120.  I am not pleased with myself.)

Marriott update: The Stamford Marriott has responded to the outcry over their victim-blaming defense in a rape case.  They are stating that the legal case has been handled by their insurance company, and they are asking that this defense be withdrawn.  Details here.  I did not expect this, and I’m pleased to see them trying to get that defense stricken, even if the article makes it seem like they’re mostly worried about saving their reputation.

Mermaid countdown: 42 days until The Mermaid’s Madness [Amazon | Mysterious Galaxy] comes out.  Gosh, getting Red Hood turned in means I can stop worrying about my deadline and start freaking out about Mermaid’s release.  Yay!  If you need me, I’ll be scouring the ‘net for advance reviews and watching the Amazon pre-order ranking 🙂

Since I’ve got nothing else to blather about this morning, I’ll leave you with this pic from 2 Much Caffeine.  Click for a larger view.  (He’s also got some other fun pics, including steampunk LEGO and an Indiana Jones scene, but this was my favorite.)
