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 […]

friday random eleven: “i heard a bird” edition

20 Apr

It’s been a rough week; truly. Lots of office stress, some emotional roller-coastering, and some random gastric distress in the last twenty-four hours I really don’t feel like describing. A highlight, however, was my Wednesday night music-making/rehearsal session with the ‘Riffs ahead of our gigs at RavenCon this weekend. I’m hoping I can channel some […]

friday random eleven: “convalescent” edition

13 Apr

If you’ve been keeping up, I’ve been in kind of a haze this week. It happens. I’ve been focusing a lot of my effort on maintaining some control of my office responsibilities (since I had to brief the big important people this week – it got…interesting. Didn’t realize how dire a lot of these people […]

friday random eleven: “good” edition

30 Mar

It’s Friday. I believe I may be dealing with a touch of con crud, west coast style. Joy. I’m feeling a little less than amazing. Should be a low-impact work day, thank goodness. Anyway, I just gotta get through the day, haul my ass out to Amherst this afternoon to haul the kid back (she […]

friday random eleven: “potential furlough blues” edition

19 Jan

It’s been a few years, but it’s looking increasingly likely I’ll be making use of this image (courtesy of artist Dan Nokes) again by the end of the day… I am not loving the possibility, because I like to get paid (especially since I just got confirmation of my performance bonus and not insignificant raise […]

another snow day

18 Jan

Wednesday ended up being another snow day for me, although it probably didn’t really need to be. Oh well. At least I found out before I left for work. I did get out and about a bit; a quick coffee run, and a trip to the leather goods shop to pick up a ghillie that […]
