Posted with one comment: trigger warning for people with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses who get too damn much of being treated like we're utterly unimportant & less than human already.

Also, this is slightly condensed because of memory effects; lj ate my first attempt.

(despite the jerks.)  Cause I have the awesomest friends!
I also have surprise cookies!  Of DOOM.  These things are not unrelated :)

And! I also have Kid Vs Squid now!  My having it may not be directly caused by friends' awesomeness, but its existence surely does (er, if you don't know gregvaneekhout  , now you know that he's the sort of awesome that writes a MG book called Kic vs Squid).

So.  <3 in both cases!

ETA: third awesome-friend reason for <3: upstart_crow  is making necklaces! and bracelets!  and earrings! To go with Steam-Powered stories!  And you can win them.

[the contest] is for one of two spiffy packages which includes the following: A copy of the book, copies of all the promo postcards and bookmarks, and jewelry sets (necklace, bracelet and earrings) for two stories: Beth Wodzinski's "Suffer Water" and Amal El-Mohtar's "To Follow the Waves."

So. How do you win these packages? It's easy! Just link to this post on your LJ, Facebook, Blogspot or ...well, anywhere, and post a link back here.

She has pictures of the necklaces and they are SO lovely!

Since lnhammer asked for them :D

Though at this rate I'm going to show you guys the whole pic in jigsaw puzzle form.

I blamecredit dormouse_in_tea for the design.

(Both hands and bracers and bracelets done in 2 days I claimed.  HA!)
