…tuesday

31 Jul

Today’s gonna be a better day, whether Bison razes my village or not. Kinda has to be. Monday was all the phone calls. All of them. Also, being told out of one side of management’s mouth that I need to disengage because of the class next month, but also need to get these two dozen […]

friday random elevenish: “feis funk” edition

20 Jul

This week, I tell you… While the family dancers didn’t have a bad showing overall at the US Open this past weekend, I somehow ended up picking up a bug from all the kids wandering around; started with the headaches and sinus congestion, went through some serious lower GI issues (I shat away seven pounds […]

two or three places at once

16 Jul

It was a very, very busy weekend, as you might have imagined. Friday was four hours or so of feis set-up and arranging, and ended up getting bitten by some show choir risers (the bruise on my forearm is *almost* faded now, though); the things I do for my family, I tell you. Saturday was […]

friday random elevenish : “about 400 cranks per mile at 2-6 gearing” edition

15 Jun

More often than not, life looks a little better from other side of twenty miles on the trail. As folks keeping tabs on me this week likely know, I’ve been having a rough week, mentally and emotionally. Vivid dreams, unsettling nervous anxiety, intermittent malaise. Not my best showing. That said, I’ve been doing my best […]

my hour(s) upon the stage…are exhausting

12 Apr

Still struggling a bit with the impact of the recovery from Flustravaganza™ 2018, though I did force myself out of my office/car/bedroom environment a bit yesterday afternoon, “taking the air”, as they say, at the local parks – I walked (not terribly energetically) a mile or two on some trails, as the weather was nice, […]

mid-week middling malaise

11 Apr

Sometimes, I think, the recovery is worse than the actual illness. I am, by most measures, in way better shape today than I have been at point since my early twenties. Hell, my waist size is smaller than it was when I graduated college. The couple of chronic health issues I won in the genetic […]

Monday update: travel woes mostly

05 Mar

So it’s Monday. Yeah. Weekend was busy. So busy. Friday night was set up the feis; integrate the college kids into the household for the next week. Saturday was get up just as early as I get up every other day to do the dance dad thing at the feis all day, handling all sorts […]

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 […]

existential crisis?

03 Jan

That’s kind of what my spouse called it anyway. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I’m going back to work tomorrow after two weeks or so away. If you look back at my posts here for (especially) the past year, you’ll notice a theme: I’m not very happy there. The organization I work […]

No way to prevent this says only nation where this regularly happens

07 Nov

For those who don’t get the title reference, here’s latest instance via The Onion, who posts this same story way too often. Sutherland Springs, TX. Happens yet again. I’m very disappointed, if not outright angry, at the Presidential reponse that “This isn’t a guns situation”, but rather “Mental health is your problem here.” Plus, you […]
