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 […]

friday random elevenish: “dance dad duty” edition

14 Jun

Forgive me, dear three or four readers out there, for getting this one posted late. I usually stage the playlist post Thursday evening, but last night I was locked down behind a soundboard for six or seven hours in support of the dance recital tech rehearsal, which, “hey, we had a tech rehearsal! cool!”, though […]

friday random elevenish – “on the road” edition

24 May

By the time you’re reading this, it’s quite likely I’ll be somewhere on the American Interstate Highway System in the general mid-Atlantic region (not that I’m not on stretches of that every day or anything), traveling to Baltimore to play shows and geek out with The Blibbering Humdingers, who are Guests of Honor at Balticon, […]

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 […]

friday random elevenish: “ya basic!” edition

10 May

Once again, how to sum up a week? I guess it hasn’t been awful; the usual problems (absolutely no movement on the work project schedule, brain chemistry, the state of the planet, constant low-level life stress) are still the usual problems, so I’m just going to leave them go. Beyond that, the week hasn’t been […]

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 elevenish: “70 percent people I’ve shared a stage with” edition

12 Apr

So…I spent most of Thursday waiting for my office phone to get fixed. A problem I reported to the trouble ticket gods three weeks ago. Now, I have a dial tone, but no phone that works. It seems my organization is on the cusp of changing over to a new Voice over IP system, but […]

who let the….

10 Apr

So, I took a day off of work today and spent it at the elementary school volunteering as a “positive male role model” as part of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program. It’s the kind of thing I probably should have done sooner, as my youngest kid is but three months short of moving on from elementary […]

friday random elevenish – “viral coma” edition

05 Apr

As I posted on social media earlier today, I don’t know what those folks at Goblins and Growlers shared with me on Monday night, but it hit me really, really hard by Tuesday afternoon. I have spent the last 48 hours or so in a semi-comatose state, waking only to use the bathroom and cough […]
