should old acquaintance be…eh, forget it, I’m tired

31 Dec

The holiday pilgrimage back home is finally over. And it was exhausting. We did, however, see more people (including a couple we haven’t seen in YEARS!) more efficiently than ever before; partially due to a well-timed family holiday party, but mostly due to obsessive planning, organization, and spreadsheets. Anyway, I’m very tired…the day started with […]

the lunatic is [not] on the grass

24 Dec

After the dress rehearsal for the somewhat half-assed children’s program for Christmas Eve mass last night, while Colleen got the kids to bed, I ran out to the store and picked up some gift bags (nobody really wants to see a present that I wrapped), then we got to the business of wrapping the presents. […]

one more…

21 Dec

Sure, I wholeheartedly support the writers, and I don’t even have cable, but once again, xkcd rips thoughts right from my head and turns them into stick figure comic strip genius: click me for the funny! Click it; it’ll make it bigger and legible.  I promise.  Click the above link – no matter what I […]

friday random ten – “special guest DJ edition”

21 Dec

Since Colleen’s ipod is back in service after disappearing behind something or other in the kitchen for a while, it felt like time for a guest appearance; a little variety in the variety; a window into the mind of the other half of this partnership, if you will. Here’s what the shuffle function on Colleen’s […]

Don’t need reason, don’t need rhyme

21 Dec

Fred’s post over at slacktivist about Christian Groups in Austin TX using Interstate 35 as a focal point for badgering and hating on the gay community evangelism, based on the text of Isaiah 35:8, which talks about a “[high]Way of Holiness”. Seeing this article, I began to wonder what the scripture had to say about […]

jam formation – random links and observations to keeps one’s spirits up

20 Dec

After a terribly crappy couple of days, I’ve managed to almost feel human for most of the day, thanks mostly to getting that meeting with the VIPs from the production floor about our (admittedly kickass) report out of the way. It even went kind of well. I know this feeling won’t last, though. Too much […]

Merry Pranksters – variations on the “laugh or you’ll cry” theme…

19 Dec

For today, unless I can come up with something else novel (and I just might; my standards of quality vary widely – I watch stuff on free hotel cable I’d never consider watching at home. For example, I hold the the Marriott corporation responsible for my viewing of several Hillary Duff films), I’m going to […]

Another Postcard – holiday “laugh to keep from crying” week continues…

18 Dec

I wasn’t planning on posting anything today, let alone part two of a series that I didn’t know existed until just now, but I was sent a link to something pretty funny that made me laugh and forget my troubles for a few minutes this morning. Still, as Reader’s Digest says, “laughter[, is] the best […]

the best festival bill ever

17 Dec

For many of you, today begins the last full work week before a Christmas/Holiday/Solstice/Yule/etc break of variable length. As stressful as I generally find the holidays, I’m still looking forward to the break. This means that the next five days will plod along very, very slowly. Given this situation, I believe we all could use […]
