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 […]

friday random elevenish: “apparently i’m important to people besides my cat” edition

07 Dec

Today looks relatively quiet, especially after yesterday, where it seemed I was stuck briefing all the important people everywhere. As I said on social media, even two decades in public service, up here near the top of the pay scale, it’s weird to know that on a semi-regular basis, my voice echoes through the august […]

friday random elevenish: “can’t breathe” edition

30 Nov

Greetings from Friday morning. It’s been a long week, not the least of which because I’ve spent it primarily on the phone while sounding like a frog, or blowing my nose, or coughing up yellow/green mucus, all while surrounded by freezing temperatures, sometimes on the inside (my office yesterday was weird). Except for Tuesday, when […]

friday wednesday random elevenish: “thanks” edition

21 Nov

Got a nice long holiday weekend queued up, and I largely knocked down all the big rocks at work on Tuesday afternoon. It’s nice to be able to pass along good news at status meetings. Weather was also pretty nice on Tuesday; I didn’t have the bike, but I stopped at the park and briskly […]

friday random elevenish: “that escalated quickly” edition

16 Nov

Winter came on like gangbusters, huh? No snow here in the RVA, but my friends in DC and environs farther north and west got spanked with snow, ice, and power outages. We just got tons of rain and a bunch of wind. One of the trees in my back yard fell down, though sadly, it […]

friday random elevenish – “I bless (and alternately curse) the rains…” edition

09 Nov

A week. Yes it was. The most exciting thing I did besides voting was buy tires. Otherwise it was conference calls, plugged up sinuses, a little cooking, a little music rehearsal, some push-ups, and just getting through it. Yep. Tonight I’ll take a drive out to SBC for the fall dance concert, Saturday I’ll push […]

friday random elevenish: “day after dweezil” edition

02 Nov

So this has been a pretty long week; not sure why, really. It seems like I spent the whole time in meetings, which, is, you know, par for the course. I just didn’t sleep well any night this week; again, not sure why. The weather’s been trying to decide whether it’s summer or fall, which […]

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 […]

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 […]

friday random elevenish: “best and worst part of the day” edition

05 Oct

The worst part of my day, is, by a large margin, the moments after my alarm goes off each morning, and I have to spend the next few minutes working up the gumption to get up and start my day. It usually gets better, but those first few minutes are the worst. This week, anyway, […]
