friday random eleven: “i heard a bird” edition

20 Apr

It’s been a rough week; truly. Lots of office stress, some emotional roller-coastering, and some random gastric distress in the last twenty-four hours I really don’t feel like describing. A highlight, however, was my Wednesday night music-making/rehearsal session with the ‘Riffs ahead of our gigs at RavenCon this weekend. I’m hoping I can channel some […]

still not Kansas

16 Apr

So we apparently had tornados and stuff last night. I slept through it all. Looks like my kid two hours west, and a bunch of my friends on the other side of the city got the warning and were sheltering in hallways and bathrooms and stuff. Seems like everybody’s cool and unharmed. That’s good. Weekend […]

friday random eleven: “convalescent” edition

13 Apr

If you’ve been keeping up, I’ve been in kind of a haze this week. It happens. I’ve been focusing a lot of my effort on maintaining some control of my office responsibilities (since I had to brief the big important people this week – it got…interesting. Didn’t realize how dire a lot of these people […]

my hour(s) upon the stage…are exhausting

12 Apr

Still struggling a bit with the impact of the recovery from Flustravaganza™ 2018, though I did force myself out of my office/car/bedroom environment a bit yesterday afternoon, “taking the air”, as they say, at the local parks – I walked (not terribly energetically) a mile or two on some trails, as the weather was nice, […]

mid-week middling malaise

11 Apr

Sometimes, I think, the recovery is worse than the actual illness. I am, by most measures, in way better shape today than I have been at point since my early twenties. Hell, my waist size is smaller than it was when I graduated college. The couple of chronic health issues I won in the genetic […]

flu

09 Apr

In case you were wondering where I was, I spent all of last week basically on my ass with the flu. Thought it was con crud? Ha. Hit me with a vengeance last Friday afternoon, knocked me down for a solid week. And I *did* get my flu shot this year, like I always do. […]

friday random eleven: “good” edition

30 Mar

It’s Friday. I believe I may be dealing with a touch of con crud, west coast style. Joy. I’m feeling a little less than amazing. Should be a low-impact work day, thank goodness. Anyway, I just gotta get through the day, haul my ass out to Amherst this afternoon to haul the kid back (she […]

northern california’s got that brochure appeal

29 Mar

After many, many weeks of disrupted schedule, both good and bad, I’m back to my regular routine (for some definitions of regular, anyway). I’m still a little worse for wear from the travel, but I’ll manage; I’ve dealt with worse. All that said, Consonance out in San Jose was pretty great. Played some great shows, […]

off the grid, and kinda wrecked

19 Mar

So, you might have noticed I haven’t posted in two weeks. It’s not that I haven’t had things to do; in fact I’ve been ridiculously busy, winging (on occasion, literally) around the country to take in the ambiance of various public sector conference rooms and admire their institutional-chic environs as lit primarily by PowerPoint slides. […]

Monday update: travel woes mostly

05 Mar

So it’s Monday. Yeah. Weekend was busy. So busy. Friday night was set up the feis; integrate the college kids into the household for the next week. Saturday was get up just as early as I get up every other day to do the dance dad thing at the feis all day, handling all sorts […]
