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 […]

spam folder poetry time!

04 Apr

As I occasionally do, I practice sustainability by recycling the electronic drivel I find in my spam folder by grabbing snippets of spam comments about replica handbags and search engine optimization and re-arranging them into verse. Why do I do this? Because it amuses me for a few minutes, and probably because it confounds search […]

friday random eleven: “Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!” edition

17 Mar

Greetings, everyone on this St. Patrick’s Day! I’m writing to you from the other side of a seemingly long (though actually kind of short) week. Not so much at work, though that’s had it’s own drama (it’s not every day the CIO of an organization gets shown the door seemingly without warning mid-week – I’m […]

confusing ad algorithms everywhere!

22 Feb

As I may have mentioned in the past, while I post a a fair bit the social networking site that uses the big F as it’s logo*, I tend to keep a lot of “personal” information (such as place of residence, job, and relationship status) vague at best in the profile section, as I’m a […]

friday random eleven: “political wait-and-see, really shitty morning” edition

20 Jan

Good morning, such as it is. Hasn’t really been so far, except that it hasn’t killed me yet, despite at least one earnest attempt. Stay tuned. I originally said I wasn’t going to belabor the issue of what’s happening today a couple of hours north of me. I then proceeded to add my couple of […]

friday random eleven – “it’s….coming!” edition

06 Jan

All told, it’s been as tolerable a first week back in the real world as one could reasonably expect. There were, as there always are, challenges (figuring out where the hell we left off at the office), weirdness (kitchen fixtures showing up in decidedly not kitchen places, for example), non-sequitir (I have been served so […]

returning absurdity – a “slice o’ life” post

05 Jan

Wednesday was my first day back at the office after the traditional holiday break. I arrived bright and early (well, I was bright, the sky wasn’t, as it was ten to six in the morning). I found that while I was gone, facilities had installed a sink in my building. A kitchen sink, pretty much […]

scene from the morning of November first

01 Nov

I began the day with a discussion of the reproductive biology of certain Hershey (née Peter Paul) confections. the eldest child was scraping the leftover Halloween hand-out candy for an Almond Joy, and noticed that there were none there. I told her I had a Mounds last night, though that if one was present, the […]

when you’re having fun, we’re having fun

31 Oct

‘Twas a long weekend, but it was a good one. As detailed previously, I had a pretty full weekend booked, beginning with a trip down to NC on Friday for the gig at HonorCon. Traffic, thanks to construction, accidents, and certain late-model Dodge Chargers and Subaru WRX STIs driving like assholes down I-85 (you know […]
