new day rising

22 Apr

One might note from my short friday evening missive that I wasn’t really in the headspace for a great weekend. I managed to salvage some of it, but yeah, it could’ve been better. Apart from paying the bills and a quick shopping trip with the spouse, I basically checked out Friday evening as indicated. Saturday […]

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 […]

friday thursday random elevenish: “a wealth of gigs” edition

14 Mar

Once again, Thursday is my Friday. Gotta treat myself now and then. It’s funny, though, that my body/brain *knows* these sorts of things, as although this week’s been rather low-imact in terms of work (my projects are on schedule and my guys are doing all the right things – the worst I’ve dealt with was […]

out of spoons

11 Mar

I spent way too much time this weekend pushing myself out there to support other people’s needs, and didn’t get a whole lot of return on the investment, or much time to practice any kind of self care. I spent way too much time worn out and cranky. I seem to be doing a little […]

fridaythursday random elevenish – “persistence of memory” edition

07 Mar

It’s Thursday. I could never get the hang of Thursdays. That’s okay this week, because today is actually my Friday, as I’m taking tomorrow off to spend with the family (including the kid who has been home from college this week), catching a matinee of Captain Marvel, and working setup for the feis this weekend, […]

friday random elevenish: “buzzword bingo” edition

01 Mar

It honestly feels like we should have hit Friday a week and a half ago. Work’s been work, as it tends to be. Nothing special; the keep paying me, so I keep coming, though I’ve had to stay late a couple of days this week, and got voluntold into a four-hour remedial “how not to […]

friday random elevenish – “spinning the wheel of bullshit” edition

22 Feb

It is Friday. ‘Twas a short week, coming off of a long weekend, made a day longer than expected as I spent Tuesday at home caring for a couple of women who I care about who were both running fevers. I don’t mind playing nurse now and then. That’s the dad life. I’ve spent considerable […]

friday random elevenish – “fawm time” edition

01 Feb

it’s Friday. Thank $diety. I’ve been struggling with work all week; swinging from angry to frustrated to despondent and then back again. So many conference calls full of people who can’t be bothered to listen to reason, logic, or, frankly, anything. I’ve also felt like hell physically. This cold snap is playing hell with my […]
