and then there was a deer

22 Oct

Colleen and I spent a lot of time on the road this weekend, visiting friends and family across the mid-Atlantic and enjoying some great performances. I also had a closer-than-I-would-have-liked encounter with some Amelia County wildlife. Friday night, while returning home late from Amherst, where we saw an absolutely AMAZING performance by my kid and […]

friday random elevenish: “sinues and goats and such” edition

19 Oct

It’s Friday. Finally. It’s been a weird week; alternately dead time or total crazytown, and likely to flip minute by minute. That said, I have, at 6:50am as I’m typing this, completed all the required tasks on my day’s to-do list as I wrote it down when I left the office yesterday evening. At least […]

cancellations, missed connections, pets, brews, and setup

15 Oct

It’s Monday. You might have noticed I didn’t post the usual random playlist thing on Friday. I had planned on it; in fact, I even had Pandora spinning in the office bright and early on Friday morning. That said, soon after I got to the office, I realized that while my building had power in […]

Friday random elevenish: “when a week’s a month” edition

21 Sep

As I’ve said to several people this week, starting around Tuesday afternoon, this week has felt longer than the whole month of August when I was stuck in Aberdeen (not too far from yesterday’s unpleasantness, incidentally) away from pretty much everything I love and care about. It’s largely had to do with work stuff, which […]

friday random eleven: “maybe 242 years was a good run” edition

09 Feb

My nerves really can’t take this kind of thing for much longer, I’ll be honest. This latest shutdown drama, passing late into the night (and still technically not over as I write this) has been hell on my calm, especially given how normally disorganized my organization is. I went to bed not knowing whether I’d […]

friday random eleven: “potential furlough blues” edition

19 Jan

It’s been a few years, but it’s looking increasingly likely I’ll be making use of this image (courtesy of artist Dan Nokes) again by the end of the day… I am not loving the possibility, because I like to get paid (especially since I just got confirmation of my performance bonus and not insignificant raise […]

friday thursday random eleven – “end of days” edition

15 Dec

Here it is. My last day of work for 2016. It’s been a heck of a year, all around, and my work life really isn’t an exception. I’ve taken on more responsibility, which involves lots of dog and pony show meetings and briefings to important people (even if those briefings aren’t so much about defending […]

VOTE

08 Nov

Okay. Today’s the day. Get out there and vote. Put a welcome period on this whole ugly business of this election season, even if, like me, you’ve been obsessively following it these however many months or years. Do it. It’s the absolute least you can do to participate.

friday random eleven – “muggles, money and mucus” edition

30 Sep

This week started with a sick day (that I’m still not over), involved an indirect presidential encounter, and so far, has been ending with a tremendous exercise in self control to not grievously maim a needy co-worker who does not understand that my office does not exist solely to support their particular project by answering […]

this weekend’s adventures…

01 Jun

Once again, we’re featured guests at ConCarolinas; as expressed in the above poster, our big shows are Friday and Saturday at 8pm, plus we’ll be involved with everything with the word “filk” in it, and will probably make some noise otherwise besides. come on out! …and while you’re at it, check out the rest of […]
