friday random eleven: “what a craic” edition

23 Jun

Another week down. I spent quite a bit of it doing the usual work/exercise/etc thing. Pretty standard, aside from a couple of car service appointments (one of which is still in process – a recall repair/rogue check engine light on the van is taking a while, so the spouse is currently rocking a 363hp Chrysler […]

best of times, worst of times

06 Jun

So, first off, Concarolinas was awesome. Both bands had some decent shows, and I got to make lots of great music with my friends. It was tiring, but a really good tired. After a day of rest (always take the day after the con off of work…trust me), I went back to work today. I […]

friday random eleven – “all over the place” edition

05 May

Happy Friday, folks. It’s actually not been a bad week at all. At work, I’ve managed to finally (I think) give everyone the documentation they need to wrap up the annual budget/contract stuff so I’ll be able to pay my folks next year. I hope, anyway. It feels good right now, so I’ll take it. […]

not this shit again

24 Apr

I had a pretty decent weekend. The kid totally rocked the prom with her vintage dress, the post-prom “event” at my place didn’t result in the teens trashing my house (thanks kids), my favorite farmer was at the farmers’ market on Saturday morning to sell me some awesome produce, I had a successful practice session […]

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 […]

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: “very parenthetical” edition

24 Mar

Not gonna belabor the point. My schedule again this week has been wrecked, largely with a bunch of big important stuff coming up at work at literally the last minute (though that stuff worked out, for the most part, pretty well – important people said very nice things about me in front of my boss, […]

directive: attain positivity

06 Mar

Looking back at my post titles from the last couple of weeks, it’s pretty damned depressing. It is kind of depressing right now; to be honest, and I really, truly could use a win right now, however small. That said, I’m going to try to remain positive. To that end, I’m going to try to […]

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 […]
