long weekend, longer week

11 Oct

Here it is, Thursday, and it feels like I’ve been at the office for two weeks since Tuesday. That’s the way these long weekends work, right? Anyway, I’ll make it through, though it appears I have all the meetings today, though I don’t have much to add to any of them other than “my guys […]

all the bands

24 Sep

As I posted on social media last evening: So, that’s Ravencon 13.5 in the books. Having performed with Dimensional Riffs, Metricula and her Friends with Benefits (including the Misbehavin’ Maidens and Podcasting’s Rich Sigfrit), sitting in with Dirty Metal Lefty (who’s awesome – check her out!), and even myself just a little bit, I guess […]

Friday random elevenish: “when a week’s a month” edition

21 Sep

As I’ve said to several people this week, starting around Tuesday afternoon, this week has felt longer than the whole month of August when I was stuck in Aberdeen (not too far from yesterday’s unpleasantness, incidentally) away from pretty much everything I love and care about. It’s largely had to do with work stuff, which […]

friday thursday random elevenish: “struggling to conquer cynicism, kinda winning” edition

28 Jun

Setting this loose today, because I’m off the clock tomorrow as mentioned, and probably won’t be locked to a computer while things load and compile, so… Anyway, the week, as a mentioned, has been relatively quiet – I’ve got a couple of conversations that have to happen today before I cut loose for the week, […]

lulled into a false sense of security?

27 Jun

So far, this week’s been relatively painless. As Independence Day is on Wednesday this year, the whole of next week (starting, say…this Thursday afternoon) is essentially treated as a holiday weekend by everyone in my occupational orbit. With people taking leave everywhere, it’s tough to reach a quorum for anything, so the usual meetings are […]

concarolinas and beyond

04 Jun

As is tradition, consider this the Concarolinas wrap-up post! As I indicated previously, going into this one, it felt a little weird – there was some drama regarding guests and politics, which, thankfully, never ended up crossing my path during the weekend. Instead, I got to spend some time with dear friends, making music, jokes, […]

thursday random eleven – “no wonder i drink” edition

31 May

Because I’m off for a long weekend to do the ConCarolinas thing, I’m doing my random playlist this morning, because I like doing it, and I felt like playing some tunes before another day of virtual meeting data analysis starts for me today. For two days so far, I’ve been doing an all-day data analysis […]

end of may…

29 May

Not a bad weekend, all told. I spent a little more money than I would have liked, but this happens, and I can always make more. Busch Gardens and a trip to Blue Bee Cider can do that. I also got some cycling in (on the Virginia Capital Trail, no less), and washed and waxed […]

friday random eleven – “first year teacher sick” edition

25 May

Happy Friday, folks. I’m mostly relieved. This week, overall, hasn’t been ridiculously excessive work-wise (it helps when most of my management, nicely distant most of the time anyway, are out bowing and scraping as part of senior leadership’s retainer for out of state site visits, and most of the public sector workforce is using today […]

back in the world

24 Apr

Taking the Monday after the convention as annual leave is probably the best gift you can give yourself; just sayin’. I spent yesterday taking care of the life stuff I didn’t get to do over the weekend, as well as taking care of some basic rest I owed myself to make up for the con […]
