friday random eleven – “up in the air” edition

18 May

The week started off well enough; I still got tons of stuff done at work, rode a bunch of bike miles, then the rain started, the office networks slowed to a crawl (if they worked at all), various other annoyances appeared, and the gnomes started mining for things in my sinus cavities (I hope that […]

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 […]

you don’t own me anymore

10 May

Wednesday at work was a pretty awful one. My calendar was full of all my favorites: the data trading partners who like to shout,not listen, and not read the test reports we give them even a year later, the annual “remind the lawyer about last year’s conversation that answered all his questions about this acquisition […]

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 […]

that kind of day

02 May

So, I looked at my calendar and inbox this morning, and had essentially this reaction: Yeah. At least the weather looks to be gorgeous this afternoon. I shall persevere; my bike’s hanging on the back of my car, and my riding clothes are in my bag. The park is calling.

lightweight

30 Apr

So it was a weekend; not an awful one, even. The spouse and I had an evening out for dinner at one of our favorite places (Capital Ale House – had a really nice brown ale from Lonerider in Raleigh NC) and to grab some odds and ends for a dress she’s making. Upon coming […]

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 […]

back in the world

24 Apr

Taking the Monday after the convention as annual leave is probably the best gift you can give yourself; just sayin’. I spent yesterday taking care of the life stuff I didn’t get to do over the weekend, as well as taking care of some basic rest I owed myself to make up for the con […]

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 […]
