likely to be the longest three days ever

30 May

I am at work for three days this week, before heading down to ConCarolinas for all the gigs on Friday. I have found that the experience of time dilation coming off a long weekend is profound; I expect both coming from and heading into one will be even more so. The next three days will […]

minor musical crisis….averted

25 May

So this happened Tuesday evening when I sat down to run through a few tunes: As I was tuning up the guitar, I grabbed the tuning machine for my D string, and the knob fell off in my hand. Surveying the damage, I noticed the whole thing was slightly bent out of shape; I don’t […]

motivation through statistical analysis

11 May

This post may be a bit personal, though I’m proud of my progress thus far, and felt like talking about it in this space might be interesting to you and/or useful to me. As I’ve alluded to a few times over the last month or so, I’ve been working on dropping some weight. Although my […]

friday random eleven twelve: “scattered data points” edition

21 Apr

Happy Friday, everybody. And, it’s been mostly happy this week. I’ve made incremental progress in a couple of areas at work (though I have a quarterly dog and pony show in DC next week I’m not thrilled about), I tracked a *lot* of parts for the new Blibbering Humdingers project in my evenings, hit level […]

friday random eleven: “feeling good enough to wax philosophical about my place in the ensemble” edition

14 Apr

it’s Friday, which is nice. Actually the outlook around these parts is not awful. Thanks to the nice weather, and let’s face it, the the dosage adjustments from the doc, I’ve been feeling a lot better; it’s not that the world or work or anything has gotten less uncertain or threatening – that’s about the […]

i just need an answer

28 Mar

As much as I hate talking about work in this space (this is, in my mind, isn’t really the place except in generalities, though I end up doing it quite a bit), a lot of stuff from the office side of my life is really weighing me down lately. Regular readers will remember that I’ve […]

friday random eleven: “another existential cry for help about my position in the bureaucratic machine” edition

03 Mar

So today started off with a bang, or a restart, at least, since I got part way to work and had to turn around because I realized I forgot my ID card. Luckily, I guess, I remembered less than one exit down the interstate, so it didn’t cost me anything but about 20 minutes and […]

monday morning, still down

27 Feb

Had an okay weekend, I suppose. Got the youngest child a new bike on Friday, and she and I had a nice five miler along the river at Dutch Gap on Saturday morning before the weird crazy hail started falling in the afternoon. We had fun, yes we did. Shame I had the weight of […]

friday random eleven: “trying to tilt the balance toward the positive” edition

24 Feb

The story of my week has been (aside from the weird ads – the lubricants are back, btw) trying to get in the same room with my boss for ten freaking minutes so as to have a very necessary discusssion about resources (as in “I need more of them so I can do the things […]

crisis of faith tuesday

10 Jan

I’m not entirely sure what it is, though I’m having serious doubts today. Not to get too specific, but work is especially frustrating, and not just in the “why the hell don’t they plow my parking lot” kind of way. For the last year, my team’s been analyzing the shit out of things and generating […]
