friday random eleven: “even episode seven” edition

03 Nov

Like I said earlier, this week’s been a rough one. Damned depression. I’m slowly coming out of it, though it’s really hard to feel anything like joy or contentment. I’m no longer despondent, but I’m pretty much numb. I had a few moments in ceili class on Thursday night that I felt maybe a bit […]

been having a rough one, folks

01 Nov

Greetings. Just wanted to report in to folks that if you’ve seen or interacted with me this week, and I seemed a bit, well, *off*, it’s because I am. For some reason, the brain, after what was a pretty good weekend, to just go into one of its moods. Depression’s a bitch, and I’m the […]

probably too busy a weekend: wrock, dance, and road trips

30 Oct

Well, Saturday was pretty damned busy anyway. Friday was a usual workday, aside from hauling my behind out to Amherst to grab the kid (which I don’t mind doing at all – we had some nice bonding over college and work gossip and our friends Valentine Wolfe’s new record), with a stop at the Appomatox […]

27 Oct

For those of you following along elsewhere, you’re already aware of the major events of my week. But for the rest of you, after being mostly down for count this past weekend with a quick-onset bug of some sort, I started the week okay, but got knocked down again Tuesday during the day , and […]

friday random eleven: “at least the tunes are good…” edition

20 Oct

So this is the week where it really felt like autumn dropped. I rode some on my trail along the river (staying off the last couple of days -they’re doing some power line work back there and it’s hard to ride with trucks in the way), and froze my behind off, but I got the […]

weekend and thereabouts; a smattering of helplessness

16 Oct

I spent my weekend a bit to the west of usual, hanging with the kid at college (it was allegedly “Family Weekend”, but there wasn’t a whole lot of actual events for family going on). We spent some time hanging out, wandering around campus, watching a bit of a field hockey game, visiting with Josie, […]

friday random eleven: “not really going to comment” edition

13 Oct

Work frustration is hitting hard. Apologize for being blah this morning. It’s also overcast and raining. I can blame that, right? So yeah. This weekend I go out to SBC for parents’ weekend; we’ll see how that works out. I’m sure it’ll be fine. Playlist this morning is interesting; a lot of the usual suspects, […]

happy ada lovelace day

10 Oct

I haven’t called this occasion out in a while, though it’s definitely something worth disucssing more often. To quote the official website of the celebration: Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration day of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in […]

chestertown and such

10 Oct

I look very very serious here for some reason So, after nailing my exam (100%!) in record time on Friday afternoon, I hit the road for Chestertown, MD for the HP fest over the weekend, arriving with plenty time time to go on stage, in part because the opening festivities were running a bit late.
