friday random ten – “dishcloth” edition

25 Mar

It’s been a hell of a week. I’ve been riding the emotional rollercoaster, given the time of year (I miss my dad). A variable subset of the children have been, shall we say, difficult this week (spring break is coming), though it’s never quite the same problem twice, so it’s hard to nip in the […]

spring, and minor spoilers

21 Mar

It was damned cold this Sunday morning while I poked around the Irish Festival waiting for the girls’ show time to come up. Didn’t stop me from drinking Guinness like everyone who wasn’t waiting in line at the Irish Coffee stand. Anyway, the girls did a masterful job with the performance I saw (they had […]

friday random ten – “…after the actual calendar day of st. patricks day” edition

18 Mar

Not huge amounts of stuff to report; life’s been life. Work, life, running kids places. Generally, it’s been pleasant to middling; no huge crises to deal with. Work has been surprisingly okay; the worst has been the ongoing challenge of having to be a loud squeaky wheel at people to give me things (like a […]

cars and coffee RVA

15 Mar

Among the other adventures this weekend, the boy and I took a couple of hours on Saturday morning to pop over to Cars and Coffee Richmond, the local branch of the popular informal automotive enthusiast get-together phenomenon. I’ve been meaning to check this sort of thing out for a while; as I’ve heard good things. […]

will we see the wallcrawler today?

10 Mar

Taking a break from the politics and cars* for a bit… In comics/movie news, this week the embargoes started lifting on the Captain America: Civil War press and set visit reports; it’s been trickling out – lots of vague interviews (though Anthony Mackie‘s stuff was particularly entertaining); some neat discussion of Black Panther, and tacit […]

1000 and change with the iM

07 Mar

On my way over to the dance competition Saturday morning, I turned over 1000 miles on the new Scion iM. Also of note, I got passed by my old Yaris on the same trip*, it looked good, and the driver looked happy (and hauling a whole bunch of stuff); I hope it serves him as […]

I give up…sorta

07 Mar

Hey folks, today I announce to the three of you who care that I’m done with primary predictions; at this point, they come so fast and furious that I can’t keep up with them (totally missing the ton of them this weekend – why did nobody call me out on my 3/2 post? I know, […]

friday random eleven – “i guarantee you there is no problem” edition

04 Mar

Happy Friday, friends. This morning, we wake up in a world where Presidential candidates use actual time in televised debates to brag about how big a dick they have, and get frenzied applause for it. Yes, I’m aware of the whole “Jumbo” business with LBJ, but that all happened behind a veneer of respectability inherent […]

less-super wednesday

02 Mar

Had to happen eventually. I didn’t do so well in my predictions (other than the fact that Trump and Clinton had a good day, but everybody knew that). I voted for Sanders, and so did a bunch of people (and not just in my social circle, where he was huge). The math isn’t great for […]
