productive weekend, huh?

11 Jun

I actually accomplished a very big pile of things this weekend. Friday night’s visit to Lynchburg to watch Shakespeare under the stars – Love’s Labor’s Lost – with the eldest was a nice trip; the show was well done for a small production, and the location, Jefferson’s Poplar Forest, is a gorgeous historical site I […]

friday random elevenish – “ouch” edition

08 Jun

It’s another Friday. The week’s not been awful; just the usual meetings, plus my boss is off taking a class for the month of June (I’m on the docket to take it in August; neither of us were looking forward to it), so I’ve got a few less distractions than usual. That said, office gossip […]

concarolinas and beyond

04 Jun

As is tradition, consider this the Concarolinas wrap-up post! As I indicated previously, going into this one, it felt a little weird – there was some drama regarding guests and politics, which, thankfully, never ended up crossing my path during the weekend. Instead, I got to spend some time with dear friends, making music, jokes, […]

thursday random eleven – “no wonder i drink” edition

31 May

Because I’m off for a long weekend to do the ConCarolinas thing, I’m doing my random playlist this morning, because I like doing it, and I felt like playing some tunes before another day of virtual meeting data analysis starts for me today. For two days so far, I’ve been doing an all-day data analysis […]

friday random eleven – “first year teacher sick” edition

25 May

Happy Friday, folks. I’m mostly relieved. This week, overall, hasn’t been ridiculously excessive work-wise (it helps when most of my management, nicely distant most of the time anyway, are out bowing and scraping as part of senior leadership’s retainer for out of state site visits, and most of the public sector workforce is using today […]

all time record – day four

15 May

This past Saturday morning, before heading out on adventures, I checked in, as I do, on social media, and found myself tagged by a friend with this: Day X of 10 of my all-time favorite albums. 10 days. What really made an impact and is still on your rotation list, even if only now and […]

weird and hot

14 May

This weekend got weird. I think I may have just had too many adventures in the last couple of days. Friday night was pizza (which was good, but didn’t agree with me), followed by Infinity War, which was about what I expected. I thought it was good, certainly, but, probably by design, it never gave […]

friday random eleven: “okay, sure” edition

11 May

Well, it’s Friday. Finally. My work week wasn’t the worst, all told – I’ve left the office feeling better than when I arrived most days (a pattern I hope holds for today, because I really didn’t want to get out of bed). I’ve solved some problems, moved some others, and haven’t had anything else huge […]

friday random eleven – “may the fourth be with you” edition

04 May

Happy Star Wars Day, a pretty cool holiday as far as totally made up holidays go, though I wonder why Disney didn’t arrange it’s schedule such that Solo: A Star Wars Story wasn’t released today – I understand not gettting in the way of Avengers: Infinity War*, but surely, that release date wasn’t immutable. Just […]

friday random eleven: “not con crud again” edition

27 Apr

Grettings, all, from a rainy Friday morning, wrapping up a mostly rainy week. I still got ten miles in on the bike thus far (five in the rain, which may be an equal contributor to the business mentioned in the title of this post), when I was hoping to knock out at least 25. Oh […]
