I have opinions on the latest scouting news

12 Oct

In case you hadn’t heard the news, on Wednesday, “the international Day of the Girl’, the Boy Scouts of America announced that they’d be making a change to allow girls to enroll in the program, starting with Cub Scouting, and eventually allow girls to earn the Eagle Scout award. Based on the information provided, the […]

bitching and coping

21 Sep

I’m really dependent on the little things I get to do these days to get me through life, because main-line “stuff I gotta do to meet the base needs at the bottom of Maslow’s Pyramid” just isn’t working for me. It’s the end of the fiscal year, which used to be a pain in the […]

last dragon*con post, I promise

08 Sep

As you guys undoubtedly know, I occasionally struggle with, among other things, impostor syndrome, wherein I doubt my ability and suitability for whatever activity I find myself doing, whether it be work, parenting, or playing in a nerdmusik/wizard rock band. Although the Blibbering Humdingers have been dragging me around with them to all kinds of […]

what a difference a year makes

29 Aug

So, thanks to a one hour meeting turning into a nearly three hour meeting, and some nasty weather, I didn’t make it to the park with the kid yesterday evening. I’ll manage to make it up to her soon (Howl-O-Scream anyone?). I wouldn’t have been my best yesterday anyway, as my emotional state was swinging […]

friday random eleven: “what a craic” edition

23 Jun

Another week down. I spent quite a bit of it doing the usual work/exercise/etc thing.

minor musical crisis….averted

25 May

So this happened Tuesday evening when I sat down to run through a few tunes: As I was tuning up the guitar, I grabbed the tuning machine for my D string, and the knob fell off in my hand. Surveying the damage, I noticed the whole thing was slightly bent out of shape; I don’t […]

lockjaw

23 May

Seriously! LOCKJAW! I know people have been kind of dismissive of Marvel’s upcoming Inhumans tv series coming this fall; it’s a very weird corner of the Marvel Universe, traditionally more Shakespearian than even Walt Simonson’s Thor, full of arch, scenery-chewing Game of Thrones-style royal family backstabbing involving women with prehensile hair and a guy named […]

motivation through statistical analysis

11 May

This post may be a bit personal, though I’m proud of my progress thus far, and felt like talking about it in this space might be interesting to you and/or useful to me. As I’ve alluded to a few times over the last month or so, I’ve been working on dropping some weight. Although my […]

fast, furious, ridiculous

24 Apr

Last week, I got an insanely good deal on the blu-ray box set of the Fast and the Furious series; seven films with a space included to add the eighth film (currently in theaters) down the road. it also has a light up dashboard on the cover, for some unfathomable reason. Go ahead and laugh; […]
