friday random elevenish: “up…and down” edition

21 Jun

It’s been a relatively quiet work week; too quiet, really – I’d really like some news on the status of my projects, honestly, and it’s not really forthcoming. I was stuck at the office on Thursday very late in order to help bail my boss and folks who aren’t as good at acquisition stuff as […]

disconnected

03 Jun

Spent pretty much all of Monday waiting around for the office network to come to some sort of decision regarding whether or not it was going to function, and allow users to accomplish anything at all beyond watching spinning “wait” icons for pretty much every tool we use. The modern office, as you might imagine, […]

friday random elevenish – “off my game” edition

17 May

Friday. About time. I was kind of off my schedule this week, between weather, appointments, rehearsals, hauling ass out to Amherst, etc. As I type this, I’d only gotten out on the trail once, and that was just a brisk three mile hike. Oh well; there’s always Friday afternoon. We shall see. I did have […]

pika, stress, etc

13 May

First, the good: We had a wonderful time with Detective Pikachu, which was actually quite a lot of fun; in great part due to Ryan Reynolds’ performance as the title character. The story was cute, though the resolution wasn’t exactly not obvious from the get-go. Still quite enjoyable, however, and gorgeous to look at. The […]

monday’s weekend recap

06 May

Happy Monday. It’s humid today, but not too hot, so I’ll take it. I walked three miles along the river after work, which felt good, except for the mosquitos. I’ve got the bike racked for tomorrow and the rest of the week. Gotta get back into the swing after being down last week. Also, I […]

friday random elevenish: “sick; no report” edition

03 May

It’s honestly not been a great week; as I mentioned previously this week and elsewhere, I’ve been sick, anxious, and waiting for The Powers That Be™ to make a freaking decision regarding my projects at work. My days have been primarily work, sleep, work, sleep, brief important people, work, sleep, all while having my building […]

i really don’t have time for this

30 Apr

So yeah; Tuesday. The weekend was, as they say, a weekend. I did some errands, saw Endgame, and ended up spending all of Sunday morning arguing with plumbing, since the faucet in the bathtub gave up the ghost, and I wouldn’t be able to turn the water off unless I fixed it. Combine that with […]

friday random ten: “an infinity of chores and chicken salad” edition

26 Apr

Given the general uncertainty about projects, along with a great number of folks in my work circles on the road for a bit industry conference down in Florida, my time in the office was slow in terms of actual PM work. I dumped a bunch of time into knocking out some online training prerequisites for […]

i honestly have no idea

22 Apr

After getting word a few weeks back that the huge project I’ve been working on for the last two years was having it’s go-live date bumped to the right…again, with a vague “July…maybe?” indicator for when we’d finally deploy this new functionality, over the last week or so, the general tenor of discussion around the […]

less than optimal

19 Apr

Today has not been particularly awesome. I woke up quite sore from seemingly overdoing the exercise. Oh well. After the morning ablutions, I checked the messages, learned that the wife of a dear friend in the fandom/music community passed away on Thursday evening. Kinda went downhill from there, with all kinds of little things tripping […]
