marscon post-op, 2018 edition

16 Jan

As expected, I had a good time at Marscon this year. The people at this con; the organizers, the volunteers, the performers and guests, and the attendees are, at this point, like family – Marscon feels like coming home. You guys are awesome, and you really know how to make a person feel welcome, appreciated, […]

friday random eleven – “gettin’ ready for marscon” edition

11 Jan

My work week is done. I even made some progress on Thursday in solving that security issue, even if I spent most of the day updating my resume (not *entirely* in anticipation of hunting for a new job; I had to submit a resume for my latest certification application) and acting as tech support for […]

marscon schedule

11 Jan

In case you haven’t looked at this site in, like, forever, you probably know that I, as part of The Blibbering Humdingers, will be 1/3 Musical Guest of Honor at MarsCon in Williamsburg this weekend; merely one of a whole slew of really great guests, musical and otherwise. This is really my favorite con of […]

chilling and rehearsing

08 Jan

This weekend was relatively uneventful. By Friday night, I started getting a tickle in the back of the throat and pressure behind the eyes. Argh. It hasn’t been cool. I’ve felt like shit, plus now that I’ve lost all this weight, and it hasn’t gotten above 20°F for most of a week, I’m constantly cold. […]

friday random eleven: “alara, wanna open this jar of pickles for me?” edition

05 Jan

After yesterday’s aborted attempt, I made it into the office this morning (after a two hour delayed opening, which I obsessively checked on six or seven times as I got ready), cracking the seal on that metaphorical jar of pickles. Roads weren’t bad, though my parking lot, as I expected, wasn’t plowed, and there was […]

Fantastic Geeks and Where To Find Them…..it’s here!

01 Jan

Fantastic Geeks and Where to Find Them (full length album) by The Blibbering Humdingers Okay, folks…this is the album we’ve been working on for the last year or so, and we cannot wait to share it with everyone! There’s some really great work on here (if I do say so myself), including a songwriting credit […]

the idle times

28 Dec

Greetings, folks, from the leisurely period between Christmas and New Years where you never quite know what day it is. I had a little bit of a bout of illness here the last couple of days (my spouse too – I blame my kid back from college, which is fair, I was sick every year […]

friday no music at all – “porgs and force brooms” edition

15 Dec

So, I’m done with work for the year (unless I get a note from my team about a certain meeting with security actually happening at some point? I dunno, I’m done worrying about it). I spent this week in class, learning all about schedule management. I passed the class with 98 of 100 points (I […]

friday random eleven – “i wanna solve *something*” edition

08 Dec

Okay then. Not loving life right now. Stress (and depression) is a bitch. As I run down the end of my work year, I’m able to nudge lingering issues forward, sorta, but they never seem to get solved. I’ve got this one issue I’ve been trying to run down since October, and whenever I make […]

now the year is really winding down

05 Dec

As I mentioned a couple of posts back, the year doesn’t really feel like it’s coming to an end until I see a certain feature on a certain web site. Well, I’m feeling it. As such, I share with you, as I do most years, The A.V. Club’s Year in Band Names feature; a collection […]
