this time for real, last road trip before I turn 40!
I claimed the last trip was going to fit that description, but at the time, I didn't know I'd get sent back to Iowa once more before the odometer turned to a new round number, so this time, for real, the trip I start tomorrow morning will be the... Read more
game 3 and the calf has rebelled
Same low calf pull, or achilles strain as the one that wrecked my winter ultimate season. Oh well, I'm out for two weeks going to Iowa for work, so I guess that's better than missing the games for injury purposes. Question is, how does it respon... Read more
I'm sitting on a bag of peas right now
Thought you should know.
Legs felt fine today, so I went to the gym to play pickleball. Realized pretty soon that my legs disagreed with my assessment of their feelings, as I wasn't able to get around the court the was I usually do. But it ... Read more
soccer game 2, and i mostly didn't die
fair warning, you might get bored of me blathering about soccer.
I played the whole game, and I wasn't tired at the end of it! Of course, that's because I could hardly move during it. I got 10000 steps in, as per my fitbit, but they were s... Read more
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
