9 years ago today, [ profile] brian1789 and I noticed each other across a party snack table and our eyes locked and held in a flash of fiery blue. Today there is still the same sparkle and thrill whenever our eyes meet. Happy sparkaversary, my love!

[Edit: Situation handled, see comments below] So there is this injured baby squirrel along my walk home from work. Slow moving and slightly bleeding, occasionally tries to walk or climb but doesn't go far; feisty enough to jump and hiss (but not run away) when I approached with a not quite big enough box. Wildlife rehab center closed for the night. What do I do to give it it's best chance to survive overnight and not inadvertently take it someplace they will just put it down anyway? Near a big tree so mother squirrel might be near, but guides say if bleeding to get it care rather than attempt to put it back by tree. Anyone here have more experience with this or know someone who does? Anyone local want to take it (we have cats, which I can keep away from it overnight, but still...)

You are invited to participate in an IRB-approved online survey (IRB # 534504-2) examining the influence of bullying experiences on adult attachment styles.

I am writing because I am conducting research for my dissertation under the umbrella of a larger grant study funded by the American Psychological Association about women with disabilities and their experiences with microaggressions. We will be conducting four focus groups. Three of them are for women with visible physical disabilities and visual disabilities, with one being a Spanish-speaking group. The remaining focus group will be facilitated by me and will be the primary focus of my dissertation. That group will be for lesbian- or queer-identified women with invisible systemic disabilities, such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc. I am writing you today to think hard about your friends, family, and acquaintances, do any of them qualify for any of these focus groups? Is there anywhere you could pass or hang a flyer? Any and all help or suggestions are appreciated and welcomed. Thank you for taking the time to think about this and help me recruit for this very important research.

Happy 2014, all!

I'm currently looking for a new office space, and it's looking likely that I'll choose an office in the 650 area code region. My cel phone number is currently in the 408 area code, which is the adjacent region.

If you were a prospective new client phoning a potential therapist for the first time, how much would it raise an eyebrow if the therapist's cel phone area code wasn't congruent with their area code region? I'm trying to balance professionalism with the utter pain that changing my cel number would be. I suppose I could get yet another Google Voice line, but... that's its own set of hassles.

So, a poll:

[Poll #1911541]
