fly into the face of uncertainty

05 Feb

As I shared on social media this morning, it was nice to see the Eagles get the ring, finally, on their third trip to the Big Game™. As a life-long, but sort of lapsed fan of the game and the team, it hit a lot of nice, nostalgic notes. I know a lot of happy […]

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, […]

2017 by the numbers

31 Dec

I’ll be honest, this year wasn’t completely awesome – there was a low-level (occasionally spiking to high level) stress and anxiety thing going on all year because of a less than ideal work situation, that’s still less than ideal, but like I told my boss, I’m giving it another year to sort itself out before […]

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 […]

fandom on the bay (sorta – bay-adjacent, certainly)

28 Nov

Hope your Thanksgiving was cool. Mine was, relatively; being one of those holidays where the culture foists marketing-crafted “traditions” on us and aims to make us feel inadequate if we don’t adhere, there’s always a bit of stress, even if I’ve managed to let go of a lot of that sense of obligation to do […]

end of my work week random eleven: “thanksgiving and such” edition

22 Nov

Wednesday is my last day at work this week. In fact, they’re releasing us a little early for the holiday, which I’ll take happily. I’ve got basic meal plans for the meal tomorrow – pretty low key, but I got some great produce at the farmers’ market this week (Turnips! Fresh Brussells Sprouts!) I’ll be […]

GEOSTORM! or geez, i’m an old

24 Oct

IN A WORLD. OF BADGE-ENGINEERED MID-NINETIES ECONOMY SPORT COUPES. ONE ISUZU-MANUFACTURED GENERAL MOTORS PRODUCT RUSTS SLOWLY AWAY IN CENTRAL WISCONSIN AFTER A SUCCESSION OF HIGH-SCHOOL DRIVER ABUSE… Just getting the obvious joke out of the way… Anyway…I saw a trailer for the currently-in-general-release, 11% Tomatometer™ rated Gerard Butler vehicle probably two years ago (it was […]

weekend and thereabouts; a smattering of helplessness

16 Oct

I spent my weekend a bit to the west of usual, hanging with the kid at college (it was allegedly “Family Weekend”, but there wasn’t a whole lot of actual events for family going on). We spent some time hanging out, wandering around campus, watching a bit of a field hockey game, visiting with Josie, […]

I have opinions on the latest scouting news

12 Oct

In case you hadn’t heard the news, on Wednesday, “the international Day of the Girl’, the Boy Scouts of America announced that they’d be making a change to allow girls to enroll in the program, starting with Cub Scouting, and eventually allow girls to earn the Eagle Scout award. Based on the information provided, the […]
