You young whipper-snappers might be all about your Timberlake memes and whatnot, but some of us remember the O.G.: Happy May Day, folks!

friday random ten: “an infinity of chores and chicken salad” edition

26 Apr

Given the general uncertainty about projects, along with a great number of folks in my work circles on the road for a bit industry conference down in Florida, my time in the office was slow in terms of actual PM work. I dumped a bunch of time into knocking out some online training prerequisites for […]

fridaythursday random elevenish – “persistence of memory” edition

07 Mar

It’s Thursday. I could never get the hang of Thursdays. That’s okay this week, because today is actually my Friday, as I’m taking tomorrow off to spend with the family (including the kid who has been home from college this week), catching a matinee of Captain Marvel, and working setup for the feis this weekend, […]

friday random elevenish – “spinning the wheel of bullshit” edition

22 Feb

It is Friday. ‘Twas a short week, coming off of a long weekend, made a day longer than expected as I spent Tuesday at home caring for a couple of women who I care about who were both running fevers. I don’t mind playing nurse now and then. That’s the dad life. I’ve spent considerable […]

the past comes crystal clear – 2018 in review

30 Dec

It’s Sunday evening, December 30, as I write this. After spending a nice afternoon out catching a pretty decent jazz trio at Castleburg and maybe stumbling into another open mic/performance/emcee opportunity at another venue in Scott’s Addition (we’ll see where that goes in the coming weeks…), I’m sitting at my kitchen table drinking a Jameson […]

friday random elevenish: “clockwatching away on the last day of my year” edition

14 Dec

Today is the last official* day of my work year, and I’m counting the minutes, as the watermarked stock photo image above suggests. I haven’t taken that much time off in 2018, and given my level of seniority and the kind of leave I earn, the concept of “use-or-lose” comes into play, so I have […]

frozen nostalgia

12 Dec

So, I ended up getting two days off of work thanks to the twelve-to-fourteen(!) inches of snow Mother Nature saw fit to dump on my section of the mid-Atlantic starting early Sunday morning; so early, in fact that they cancelled the 5k the youngest and I were going to run that afternoon. Oh well, I […]

“keep moving forward, and if it’s time to go, it’s time”

13 Nov

So yesterday, we lost Stan Lee. We all know who he is (well, I hope we do, if you’re reading this): the guy who had a hand, along with other prolific storytellers like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, in creating so many of the iconic superhero characters we see today pretty much everywhere – movie […]

friday random elevenish: “winter is coming” edition

26 Oct

It’s been a relatively uneventful week, at least in areas I’m going to talk about in this forum (how’s that for vague?). I worked, I slept, I took cold medicine to sort out my sinus issues related to the changing of the seasons. I played a decent, if experimental (gotta work on that acoustic arrangement […]

unpleasant old feelings

27 Sep

I’ve probably been paying more attention to the current Supreme Court business than is healthy, and the salaciousness of everything is certainly increasing the coverage this particular reality show being put on by our government is getting. Mostly, though, I’m hating the fact that here, in 2018, we’re where we are as a society, that […]
