Here I am in limbo

Thursday, April 02, 2015      4 comments

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

severely bummed

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

Sunday, February 01, 2015      1 comments

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!

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      4 comments

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

Friday, January 23, 2015      4 comments

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

Sunday, January 11, 2015      5 comments

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

oh boy this is gonna be bad

The fact that I had a job the last couple of summers that had me travelling means that these past two summers really haven't been summers. I haven't been able to play softball or ultimate frisbee or soccer, the kind of thing that makes summer su... Read more

Welcome Home

Thursday, January 08, 2015      3 comments

Sometimes, you can go home again. I skipped a round of the BLC challenge thingy on spark, just for not knowing whether I was really getting the motivation I needed out of it. Honestly, I'm still not sure, but I certainly missed the teammates and... Read more

I am the enemy. I am the antidote.

Hey, look, we all know we're the reason we're here at spark. And we're all aware that it's up to us to make the changes necessary to attain 'good' health (whatever that means for you!) I'm not sure that's exactly what Arch Enemy were going ... Read more

I am a man of minor miracles

Last trick of the old year or first of the new, I'm not sure, but I managed to lose weight over the holiday season. Maybe coughing and sneezing for three days counts as exercise, after all? Couple more tidbits from the trip down to TN: 1)... Read more

Once more down Thunder Road

Saturday, January 03, 2015      4 comments

Spent New Year's down Tennessee way for the second year in a row, and perhaps the last, as the friends who hosted are planning to move back to the midwest. It was a fun 5 days, filled with friends, games, and phlegm, as I and a number of others ... Read more
