friday random eleven: “okay, sure” edition

11 May

Well, it’s Friday. Finally. My work week wasn’t the worst, all told – I’ve left the office feeling better than when I arrived most days (a pattern I hope holds for today, because I really didn’t want to get out of bed). I’ve solved some problems, moved some others, and haven’t had anything else huge […]

friday random eleven – “may the fourth be with you” edition

04 May

Happy Star Wars Day, a pretty cool holiday as far as totally made up holidays go, though I wonder why Disney didn’t arrange it’s schedule such that Solo: A Star Wars Story wasn’t released today – I understand not gettting in the way of Avengers: Infinity War*, but surely, that release date wasn’t immutable. Just […]

lightweight

30 Apr

So it was a weekend; not an awful one, even. The spouse and I had an evening out for dinner at one of our favorite places (Capital Ale House – had a really nice brown ale from Lonerider in Raleigh NC) and to grab some odds and ends for a dress she’s making. Upon coming […]

friday random eleven: “not con crud again” edition

27 Apr

Grettings, all, from a rainy Friday morning, wrapping up a mostly rainy week. I still got ten miles in on the bike thus far (five in the rain, which may be an equal contributor to the business mentioned in the title of this post), when I was hoping to knock out at least 25. Oh […]

still not Kansas

16 Apr

So we apparently had tornados and stuff last night. I slept through it all. Looks like my kid two hours west, and a bunch of my friends on the other side of the city got the warning and were sheltering in hallways and bathrooms and stuff. Seems like everybody’s cool and unharmed. That’s good. Weekend […]

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 […]

off the grid, and kinda wrecked

19 Mar

So, you might have noticed I haven’t posted in two weeks. It’s not that I haven’t had things to do; in fact I’ve been ridiculously busy, winging (on occasion, literally) around the country to take in the ambiance of various public sector conference rooms and admire their institutional-chic environs as lit primarily by PowerPoint slides. […]

Monday update: travel woes mostly

05 Mar

So it’s Monday. Yeah. Weekend was busy. So busy. Friday night was set up the feis; integrate the college kids into the household for the next week. Saturday was get up just as early as I get up every other day to do the dance dad thing at the feis all day, handling all sorts […]

friday random eleven: “don’t throw away your shot” edition

02 Mar

Yeah. Life this week has revolved entirely too much around using my dad voice. Funny thing was, I wasn’t really doing it at home. The supposedly professional adults I am charged with working with are well in the midst of all kinds of petty squabbling and I’ve had to do too many things that feel […]

for me, it’s tuesday

27 Feb

This weekend was a weird one. I stayed up way too late on Friday night, drinking beer and shopping online. Having gotten a pretty good coupon from Monoprice after ordering a cheap tube amplifier (that I’d been watching for months) last week, I spent $50 on a backup electric bass guitar, their knockoff copy of […]
