The title is a reference to a line from the Haken (rhymes with bacon!) song, "Cockroach King", which I may or may not have shared in this space before, but is always worth sharing, because the video is all puppets, and opens with an homage to qu... Read more
I really don't know how I did it
Back in late 2012 early 2013, starting before i moved back to Michigan, and continuing on until I started travelling for work, I managed to scribble a blog a day for over 4 months. Having written something three days in a row, and then failed to... Read more
if it isn't one thing it's another
as per a ct scan I don't have a kidney stone, which is a good thing, but ultrasound says hernia, which isn't. I suppose it's good to know, rather than the doc having to go fish to stitch together the symptoms in an effort to figure out what's g... Read more
I played soccer and I didn't die!
ok, so it was really cold. Snowing, even. And it was artificial turf, which scared me when I realized it, because I spent the winter battling artificial turf and the calf/achilles injury i've mentioned previously. But....and were talking a big b... Read more
the silo isn't what you might call optimum
So my time spent at this site is really broken down into two or three buckets. One has the people I interact with through blogs, reading and scribbling both. Sadly, that happens most when I am actively writing stuff, and when I'm not, that seems... Read more
Here I am in limbo
The title of this blog isn't necessarily indicative of any hopeless feeling of being trapped, but then again, it might be. Weight is almost imperceptibly dropping, and then jumping up again, and then imperceptibly dropping, a cycle that gets old... Read more
New high score!
of the wrong kind. Had a short 2 weeks work contract, so I spent the last couple of weeks in the quad cities, on the Iowa Illinois border. Eating out every meal, and not exercising (hurt myself, again, something in the low back/hip/groin region,... Read more
and no, it has nothing to do with vd, i am at peace with my singularity.
Rather, it's a physical defect that is annoying the crap out of me. Well, without the fecal extrusion part. Playing ultimate frisbee this winter, as I've mentioned bef... Read more
Does this make me a meanie?
I almost want to go to the movie theater on Friday to go watch something like the Spongebob Squarepants movie and people watch on the people lining up to see 50 Shades of Gray. Seeing some interesting commentary on it in places like Time Magazin... Read more
on the importance of checking both feet
Grabbed a new pair of sneakers, as the old, while still perfectly serviceable in most respects, have become somewhat treadless, and therefore wasn't providing much traction while playing pickleball on a gym floor. When in the shop, I saw a parti... Read more
Gotta love when random mode perfectly captures the mood
The mood is pretty good, actually, as odd as the day was. Went to the gym at 9 am saturday, and this after a ultimate frisbee game the night before, and all that led to a long nap Saturday afternoon. And now I'm wide awake at 2 AM. But the rando... Read more
heavy metal bake sale!
Friends of mine in the band Imminent Sonic Destruction are getting ready to record an album, and instead of making a kickstarter (or indiegogo or pledgemusic or whatever) page, they were more creative, and put together a heavy metal bake sale, i... Read more
Got glimpse of my future tonight, and I didn't like it
So last Friday was the second game of the ultimate frisbee season, and for the most part, it went better than the first. I played multiple points in a row, not getting winded just be stepping out on the field. I actually scored a point! The guy ... Read more
you'd think motivation would be high at the start of the year...
....but in my case, you'd be wrong. Lump on a log is more of the attitude these days. Especially annoying/confounding with the start of the blc round just a couple of days ago. You'd really think, having chosen to dip my toe back in that pool, I... Read more
Last chance to evacuate planet earth before it is recycled
The ultimate frisbee was every bit as bad as I'd feared. Apparently, the competition includes members of the University of Michigan ultimate team (MagnUM), as well as a bunch of local club players, and, well, I guess I'm just going to have to de... Read more
