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 […]

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 […]

friday random eleven: “don’t throw away your shot” edition

02 Mar

Yeah. Life this week has revolved entirely too much around using my dad voice. Funny thing was, I wasn’t really doing it at home. The supposedly professional adults I am charged with working with are well in the midst of all kinds of petty squabbling and I’ve had to do too many things that feel […]

for me, it’s tuesday

27 Feb

This weekend was a weird one. I stayed up way too late on Friday night, drinking beer and shopping online. Having gotten a pretty good coupon from Monoprice after ordering a cheap tube amplifier (that I’d been watching for months) last week, I spent $50 on a backup electric bass guitar, their knockoff copy of […]

friday random eleven – “turning the corner, and the worst idea in the history of bad ideas” edition

23 Feb

So, this week has been a bit of a roller coaster in terms of personal health; Had a couple of good days with the sinuses and the throat, enough that I felt like I might be turning the corner. Then yesterday happened, and I started up that cycle of better/relapse that gets me two steps […]
