In what will probably be the first of many, I am not typing "what the hell is wrong with these people" for this one. Instead, I am merely pointing out that [personal profile] jonquil has a post on an ongoing epidemic of pertussis in California. If you live in or are visiting California in the near future, you should get a TDap/DTap booster vaccine, or get vaccinated if you weren't vaccinated previously. I myself am getting a booster shot tomorrow.

A fan near Philly needs to find a new home for her two cats.

The lovely and talented (World Fantasy Award nominee, actually) [ profile] elisem is having a 50th birthday sale to fund an epic trip around the world--items on this post are currently at 40% off, and they'll be going to 50% off tomorrow. (She will also be looking to sell a lot of her extensive BPAL and Nocturne Alchemy collection quite soon.) Steampunk! Awesomeness! Yay!

And now I must go pack.

Ugh, anti-vaxers.

I had whooping cough when I was nine (even though I'd been vaccinated) and it was horrible. I coughed for months and it just felt like it would never end.
