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 […]

back in the world

24 Apr

Taking the Monday after the convention as annual leave is probably the best gift you can give yourself; just sayin’. I spent yesterday taking care of the life stuff I didn’t get to do over the weekend, as well as taking care of some basic rest I owed myself to make up for the con […]

friday random eleven: “i heard a bird” edition

20 Apr

It’s been a rough week; truly. Lots of office stress, some emotional roller-coastering, and some random gastric distress in the last twenty-four hours I really don’t feel like describing. A highlight, however, was my Wednesday night music-making/rehearsal session with the ‘Riffs ahead of our gigs at RavenCon this weekend. I’m hoping I can channel some […]

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 […]

my hour(s) upon the stage…are exhausting

12 Apr

Still struggling a bit with the impact of the recovery from Flustravaganza™ 2018, though I did force myself out of my office/car/bedroom environment a bit yesterday afternoon, “taking the air”, as they say, at the local parks – I walked (not terribly energetically) a mile or two on some trails, as the weather was nice, […]

mid-week middling malaise

11 Apr

Sometimes, I think, the recovery is worse than the actual illness. I am, by most measures, in way better shape today than I have been at point since my early twenties. Hell, my waist size is smaller than it was when I graduated college. The couple of chronic health issues I won in the genetic […]

flu

09 Apr

In case you were wondering where I was, I spent all of last week basically on my ass with the flu. Thought it was con crud? Ha. Hit me with a vengeance last Friday afternoon, knocked me down for a solid week. And I *did* get my flu shot this year, like I always do. […]
