I suppose I should have updated this before now

Seeing as how mentioning an impending surgery and then disappearing is a bit rude. Sorry 'bout that. So I survived. Got to spend a couple extra days in the hospital because I wasn't peeing right, by their reckoning. Raw hospital bills of we... Read more

So, this procedure I'm going to have done at 730 AM on Wednesday is pretty straightforward, and being performed by a surgeon that is very experienced in this procedure. So, basically, I haven't really worried about it at all. But then I go to th... Read more
funny how things work out sometimes

So, my previous work contract ended on May 5. It was supposed to run until the 4th of July, more or less. But budgetary issues caused a reassessment on their part, and we were all told the project was ending early. Why they couldn't have just le... Read more

That's the size of the tumor squatting in my skull, not even paying rent for that prime real estate. On the good side, it's not cancer. Rather, a benign pituitary outgrowth. On the other side, brain tumor! If you're curious, or o... Read more
I pooped at 2 am this morning!

The alternate title might have "what the frack? Spark People giving out awards for logging in one day in a row?" but I failed to figure out at first glace how to post a pic from my spark gallery into a blog, so I went with the poop. And I d... Read more
Going all Jersey Shore and getting my GTL on today

You know, Gym, Taxes, Laundry? Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm a slacker on that middle item. But hey, it's still March, and I'm starting, and that's actually improvement. I know the old line about how waiting on it is basically like giving the governme... Read more
New high score: 222.2

just a matter of factual statement here, no plea for sympathy, help, or anything of the sort. Not even a "I must and will do better" pledge, even if both conditions apply. Like I said, just a statement of fact, hit and run blog. Something that i... Read more
Sweat...and pain

Had an elbow thing a few weeks ago, can't recall if I mentioned it in this space or not. Went to shrug off a heavy winter coat, and while it still hung on my arm behind my back, I felt an excruciating pain in the elbow. Over the next couple of d... Read more
no sweat

I mean, that's the problem, no sweat, not gymming, not bolted to the floor biking, not airbag whaling, nor any of the other physical activities that might induce a loss in the weight game. This week has been a galling example of that, with essen... Read more
I woke up more or less refreshed this morning
Thursday, January 12, 2017      1 comments

And that despite only getting about 5 hours of sleep after I went to bed at night. That was, of course, supplemented by the 2+ hour nap I took immediately after getting home from work, wherein I just conked right out. Frankly, if I hadn't mis-ap... Read more
Change of shade, change of attitude?

Hey, how come camera phone software doesn't come with "negative image" filters any more? Saw the pic of me with that filter, it made me chuckle, I put it back in as my profile pic. Whether it changes anything, I kinda doubt. The new year seems t... Read more
Congrats, you survived 2016

Aka, Happy New Year. I don't make resolutions. So here I am, making a resolution: I will begin 2018 weighing less than the gargantuan 216.4 I weighed in at this morning. Given how ludicrous a figure that is, I'm not exactly setting a h... Read more
Top ten favorite albums?
Friday, December 23, 2016      3 comments

Someone asked that question on fb, and i saw it at about 5 am and came up with this list. The top 5 haven't changed in ages, and I'm not sure if it's true any more, what with not having listened to the U2 album in ages. The second 5...2 or 3 of ... Read more

went to do a sleep test on Saturday night. Figured there was little chance of sleeping, what with being keyed up after the Michigan Ohio State game (freakin' zebras), but they said to turn off the cell phone, so I did, and then the lights went o... Read more
On the other hand

(If you're like me, that title would have made you think of Fiddler on the Roof) Having a longer contract is nice, but the hour commute in each direction is a bit annoying. Eating two meals at home daily is nice, the outside lunch is s... Read more
