Found the most amazing wall clock (second picture for size scale) buried under a pile of tripe on a clearance shelf at Target. I know it doesn't look like much right now but I have Plans - I am going to steampunk the hell out of this thing.

The clock faces themselves provide perfect canvases for decoration. I think I might cover the supporting wires with brass adhesive foil tape, to add some color and make the black clocks stand out a bit more. Instead of cities I'm going to label them PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE - or possibly LAST WEEK, TODAY and NEXT YEAR. Although all three clocks work I'm only going to put a battery in the middle clock so it'll look like the other two can be reset at will for time-travel destinations.

And while we're on the subject of science, did anyone else see this? 16-year-old decomposes plastic in three months, provides (potential) solution for a major environmental issue.
The insomnia thing decided to kick my ass last night. I've had less than two hours of sleep. I'm not likely to get more'n five for the rest of the weekend.

It's bad enough that I'm thinking I may bail on the CSPC's steampunk party. Which pisses me off, because I've been looking forward to that for weeks; I rearranged my whole schedule this weekend so I could have tonight off. But I don't want to go and then end up sitting in a corner all night because I don't know anyone else there.

If any of you are going, let me know. Otherwise I think I might just come home and sleep.
