Seattle-area guys, my migraine level's at 8 right now (which is actually an improvement from what I woke up with), so there's no way I'll be at NK tonight; just not up to being with other people. Someone have an extra drink for me, 'k?

This is what both Chaz and I are listening to tonight:

My wake drink was fresh-squeezed peach juice, for which I thank txanne.

Oh. I forgot to tell you guys a thing. In fact, I forgot to tell Bear, whom I showed the items in question to earlier tonight, and I only remembered when I showed them later to txanne.

I periodically order charms from various suppliers (no, silly; metal ones for use in jewelry!) and had recently ordered a whole bunch of various ones for an upcoming convention and some projects. However, one package of charms came in the mail for me lately which I must remark upon.

They were waiting for me when I came home from New York.
I opened them on the 21st.
They are harpy eagles.

What I forgot to tell Bear, and did tell TexAnne, is that I do not remember ordering them.  They just showed up.

Hm.

Jeffy - thank you.

Lioness person: Um.

There's that thing... *again*.

Well, it is entirely possible that I ordered them and then forgot. Except that I would probably have been thinking "Oh, dear, and I have harpy eagles coming in the mail soon. Wah."

They are very nice harpy eagles. I am going to have to figure out what to do with them. It needs to be a Right Thing, I think.  (Pendants, and donate half to the appropriate charity?)

Sell half to people who were in on the SU-themed Beads of the Month, and just add them with whatever month's stuff is going out already, to save on shipping?

(Ghods, I've *got* to start selling things - want to get a bead group going at the day shelter that, in all probability, saved whatever sanity I have by letting me play the piano for an hour every morning; they have no supplies except elastic and pony beads, and it wouldn't take all that much to get basic tools, beadalon/acculon, clasps/earwires/headpins/crimp beads, and a bunch of glass and some semiprecious stuff to get a group going. Just more than I can spare... but if I sold a few things...)

Good plan. I can do that. I'll post a thing about it in the SU BotMo topic, I think.

Dear heart... I have Stuff. Where do you want me to mail it?  Probably be easier to send it directly to them instead of you schlepping on the ferry, right?

*stunned* I think there's a box of kleenex next to that pen I left in the bathroom, again.

It may take me a month or two to get it set up; I'll leave a voicemail for the staff person there. (And we can take this to email from here on, right?)

Glinda, I have Stuff, too, more than I can use. Let me see what I can scrounge up for you.

I didn't get in on the SU BotM before, but would it be possible to get in on something with the harpy eagles?
