it’s dragon*con week

29 Aug

If you happen to be in Atlanta this coming weekend, once again, the Blibbering Humdingers are playing Dragon*Con as part of the filk track, and once again, I’ll be joining them to play bass and carry heavy things around. I’m checking out of the office for a week or so starting Wednesday, which I think […]

solving the world’s problems over a couple of drinks

29 Aug

For once, it was a relatively low-key weekend; I’m feeling much better after decompressing a bit after being wound up so much around the spindle of depression the last week or two. The weekend’s activities, as I said, were pretty benign and relaxing. I took my wife out for a nice dinner and some Pokemon […]

friday random eleven – “bruised arm at Magrathea” edition

26 Aug

I suspect this is kind of the usual refrain here, but this has been a rough week. I think this comes up here more often because feelings of despondence tend to trickle out through my fingers onto the interwebs. If I’m feeling good, I’m less in my head, enjyoing the moment. Anyway, I struggled a […]

some personal pokemon silliness

25 Aug

There’s been another update to Pokemon Go this week, including the new “appraisal” feature, ideally for players to get a read on how effective/powerful their various pokemon are. It took players approximately 30 seconds to turn it into one big dick joke. I admit, I did laugh. And I needed a laugh this week. This […]

they grow up so fast

25 Aug

Got it back just in time to roll over five (virtual) barrels: Overall, the ownership experience with my Scion iM has been a pleasure; it’s a great car, fun and comfortable to drive. Just sporty enough in appearance and drive feel to engage me without being ridiculously powerful and consumptive (note the average MPG figure […]

raid

22 Aug

…among other things, I went to a Pokemon Go! raid this weekend. What that means is that a huge number of players of this game get together in a Pokestop heavy public area and wander around catching monsters, sharing intel, and generally bringing the social part of this game that overlays the real world to […]

friday random ten eleven: “from despondent to obvious” edition

19 Aug

It was a bit of a struggle to get here, I must say. This week’s been rough. Found myself in a bit of a down cycle on the depression continuum the last couple of days. I think I might see the way out of it, but it’s been a hard road the last 48 hours […]

losening and tightening

17 Aug

I took yesterday off, to take care of some appointments. I got one in, and lots of drama. The chiropractor experience was magical. My back and shoulders have never felt better. The man is magic. I still worry I’m going to get addicted/dependent on these adjustments; visions of Victorian ladies being treated for hysteria come […]

one hundred seventy-seven

15 Aug

Had an okay weekend, I guess. Got together with friends on Friday and Saturday, which was nice. Took the kid for surprise pizza and Build-A-Bear for her birthday. She had a blast. Somewhere along the line, though, I started feeling pretty awful – it’s going around. I was totally crashed out by early Sunday afternoon. […]
