talking weekends through the fourth dimension

12 Apr

My weekend finally ended last evening. I took a couple of days off to support a couple of commitments and to maybe, sort of, get a little bit of rest here in the early spring. That last bit didn’t quite work, but I got stuff done. The big event was the trip to Sweet Briar […]

friday random eleven – “making the things” edition

07 Apr

Happy Friday to you all, more or less. I will admit to a little deja vu, as yesterday felt an awful lot like Friday to me, which is never a great thing to have happen to someone on a Thursday, as you can imagine. The week’s been the usual weirdness and uncertainty, though I’ve made […]

weekend – not nearly long enough

27 Mar

So, Friday night we did go to The Fountain and hung out with John Scalzi for a couple of hours. Nice crowd in the tiny, awesome store, including our friends Chris and Melissa in from Norfolk. Scalzi read a bunch of cool stuff (including a chapter from the forthcoming sequel to the very good Lock […]

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, […]

friday random eleven: “Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!” edition

17 Mar

Greetings, everyone on this St. Patrick’s Day! I’m writing to you from the other side of a seemingly long (though actually kind of short) week. Not so much at work, though that’s had it’s own drama (it’s not every day the CIO of an organization gets shown the door seemingly without warning mid-week – I’m […]

weekend positivity round-up

13 Mar

You might have noticed there wasn’t a regular report on Friday. That’s fine; I was just off the internet, which is something you have to do now and then. My weekend was actually pretty decent; I got stuff taken care of on Friday (including getting the eldest a pretty awesome prom dress for almost nothing), […]

project positivity: thursday

09 Mar

Today wasn’t altogether bad either, at least so far (and as it’s past six and my dinner is cooking, I’m calling it a day). The fact that I made today my Friday helped a bit. I had a productive work session with my team at the office, wrapped up all my paperwork, answered a few […]

project positivity: wednesday

08 Mar

Today was actually pretty good day. Work was generally good; my 10am meeting was cancelled, which was wonderful, because it’s always a slog, and we’d spent two hours yesterday in an ad-hoc meeting discussing the same project anyway. I also spent some more time running some more numbers on my interminable budget nightmare, and proved […]

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 […]
