♣ Back from my dance weekend (so worth the massive sleep debt) and back to work! The dance post will have to wait until later this week, but I haven't forgotten about the meme prompts.

♣ Not having participated in any of the marches, I was still super happy about all the updates my friends and family were sending me this weekend. Must figure out a photo post, but for now, the best sign I've seen (c/o my sister): "SUPER CALLOUS FRAGILE RACIST EXTRA BRAGGADOCIOUS", and the best link I've seen: protest llama!

♣ Lunar New Year is coming up this weekend, and I'm not sure how I'm going to celebrate yet! Well, I've already figured out when I'll get my preparatory cleaning in, but that's about it; I don't know if I have the time or energy to do a dumpling party the way I did last year. We could go to Chinatown for dinner or something but I'm guessing it'll be crowded and possibly a bit more expensive. Maybe a potluck or a dim sum brunch...?

♣ I've lost track of a number of links from private conversations, alas, but I've updated my resource list with some additional organizations.

♣ Roomie got some perfumes and essential oils on her family vacation, which all smelled nice but were completely perplexing. My nose is not accustomed to this many different things! The lavender oil she gave me relaxed me into a puddle of contented sleep yesterday though. \o/ :D

I missed the resource list in generally being offline, so I will bookmark now, thanks!

OMG PROTEST LLAMA (AND ALPACAS).

I love the correction:

CORRECTION

Abbott’s protesting companions are actually one llama and two alpacas. A previous version of this article said they were all llamas.

*sidles up to you*

I can provide links on how to educate your nose and be less perplexed, if that is of interest ...

I like this because it's about expanding your mental vocabulary for scents and learning to recognize things, oriented towards finding out what you like and then finding more things like that.

Oooh, Lunar New Year time already! Hope whatever you end up doing is lots of fun :D I suspect I'll have to be pretty low-key this year, too, though a dumpling party is an awesome idea I might have to implement next year.

There were some amazing signs at the marches. So smart and so pointed.
