friday fifth monday random eleven – “nobody died” edition

15 Sep

As the slight tweak to the title of this post suggests, it’s been another one of those weeks; not just for me, but for pretty much everybody I’ve come in contact with. Starting Wednesday, I’ve run into several people (who had no reason to talk to each other about this) refer to the day as […]

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 […]

friday random eleven: “back to the mundane” edition

08 Sep

With the big geek labor day celebration behind me, I returned to the mundane world of public sector information technology program management on Thursday, and was pleased to find that that the place didn’t collapse in my absence. Well, my corner of it didn’t, anyway. Looks like one of my EDI trading partners’ feed shit […]

DragonCon 2017 round-up

07 Sep

So, that’s another DragonCon for the books. After four years of doing this (and the rest of the band having an extra year on me besides), we seem to have both figured out logistics and a few tricks for, as well as developed a pretty decent following at, this event; things went pretty damned smooth […]

Dragon*Con time

30 Aug

Wednesday is my last work day before taking a few days off for my annual march to Atlanta with The Blibbering Humdingers for Dragon*Con, where we’ll be playing a bunch of shows, vending, and generally taking in the sights and catching up with dear friends and co-conspirators. In case you’re in the area, here’s where […]

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 […]

my weekend – look what you made me do

28 Aug

yep, that’s just me channelling my inner TS (actually, while I haven’t been keeping up with all this, they song is kind of catchy, and apparently she’s a bad girl now? I don’t get it. Also, Madonna did all this stuff better 30 years ago). Whatever. I had a weekend. It was a pretty good […]

friday random eleven: “storm before the storm” edition

25 Aug

As indicated earlier, ’twas my birthday week this week, and it was…okay. The rest of the week was full of weird stresses I don’t always hit. Work was extra stressful (it’s the end of the fiscal year, and they keep on changing the rules about getting my contracts sorted, plus the series of tubes shit […]

no longer the answer

24 Aug

Totally didn’t post on my birthday yesterday. Oh well. Lots of my friends sent me well wishes on social media, which is where so much of the action is these days. I’ve been posting things in this space (and it’s predecessor) for fifteen years now, I kind of run out of things to say. So, […]

friday random eleven: “really feels like saturday” edition

11 Aug

I spent so much of this week feeling under the weather, I locking down what day it was has been tough. I was out Tuesday(?) on sick leave – feverish, chills, all that good stuff. I slept for 19 hours. Guess I needed it. And, it saved me from thinking too hard about all the […]
