monday morning, still down

27 Feb

Had an okay weekend, I suppose. Got the youngest child a new bike on Friday, and she and I had a nice five miler along the river at Dutch Gap on Saturday morning before the weird crazy hail started falling in the afternoon. We had fun, yes we did. Shame I had the weight of […]


friday random eleven: “trying to tilt the balance toward the positive” edition

24 Feb

The story of my week has been (aside from the weird ads – the lubricants are back, btw) trying to get in the same room with my boss for ten freaking minutes so as to have a very necessary discusssion about resources (as in “I need more of them so I can do the things […]


confusing ad algorithms everywhere!

22 Feb

As I may have mentioned in the past, while I post a a fair bit the social networking site that uses the big F as it’s logo*, I tend to keep a lot of “personal” information (such as place of residence, job, and relationship status) vague at best in the profile section, as I’m a […]


hey tuesday…

21 Feb

I’m getting a tiny bit of a breather on a Tuesday morning, which has, so far, been filled with all sorts of “absolultey HOT, need ASAP!” tasks waiting for me that hit my email after 4pm on Friday, though a cursory look at the email trail for context shows that the people needing them “ASAP!” […]


friday random eleven: “fifteen” edition

17 Feb

Happy Friday, folks. This week’s been, not exactly uneventful (in fact, on some higher conceptual levels, it’s been pretty damned eventful indeed), but it’s passed quickly and quietly for the most part. Weird Virginia weather, sinus pressure a constant annoyance, the usual political noise, and Valentine’s/Discount Candy Day, depending on your perspective. Today is, however […]


twenty-four years ago today

15 Feb

Valentines’ Day, February, 1993. I had gotten my ass dumped by an individual I was kinda/sorta dating my freshman year of college. Turns out I dodged a serious bullet there (phrases like “chlamydia treatments” and “kicked out of England on drug charges” would be applied to this individual in the coming months/years), but yeah, at […]


a weekend

13 Feb

It was a weekend. Objectively, a beautiful weekend. It was sunny, and blew past 80° F here in central Virginia, which is weird, but not unknown in this part of the world. It was bound on either end by temperatures in the low 40s, so there is that. Anyway, the big highlight of the weekend […]


friday random eleven – “anachonism” edition

10 Feb

I’m not going to belabor anyone with stories of my week; nobody wants that, not this week, anyway. I’m hoping for some enjoyment this evening, though, as the eldest child and I are scheduled to take in the musical stylings of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox tonight at The National downtown. And maybe some BBQ beforehand. […]


my fellow musician

09 Feb

Some of you might remember, I bought an acoustic bass a few months back on a whim (I saw it getting traded in, I went back to the store later and picked it up for $50 or so). As I don’t have a proper case for it, and it was ultra-cheap anyway, I tend to […]


proud dad

08 Feb

My 17 year old daughter registered to vote today. This is a big deal. I’m so proud. I just wanted to say that. She kind of looked at me funny while we talked about it, but this is something that’s hugely important for me; and a logical step in her progression as an informed and […]
