fast forward paws to play

Miraculously the replacement fursuit paws I ordered are done just in time for AC:

These were made by Beetlecat. My original ones look good but are way too floppy-floopy to use correctly. I found that if I use my scubadiving/hunting neoprene gloves as inner liners, the old ones will sort of fit, but I'm sure my hands would be like pot-roast after suiting for an hour in them. I still don't know if they'll arrive by AC or what. Hopefully..

Swab the deck

I recently got a free kit from the National Marrow Donor Program to collect DNA and type me for some markers so I can be added to the registry. If I match I can go in to have either blood taken or bone marrow taken from my hip-bone for someone with a need for marrow (and who doesn't like marrow?). The marrow collection is supposed to be pretty much painless since they anesthetize you beforehand. They were a little unclear whether it would be an epidural or what, but they mentioned an option for general anesthesia, which is what I would insist on. I don't cotton to the idea of an epidural particularly well.

You can get on the registry for free right now, as they're running a promotional campaign, so I suggest you swab while the swabbin's good.
