pickleball in the wind was interesting

Wednesday, August 26, 2015      1 comments

I'd never played the game outdoors. Battling the element, i.e. a stiff breeze, was interesting, all the more so because I'm used to the generic wooden paddle supplied by the rec center, and I was playing with a real paddle from someone who had a... Read more

This is a test

Tuesday, August 18, 2015      6 comments

No, seriously, it is, because another user mentioned how they couldn't figure out how to create a blog post on the new mobie aite, and I though, hey, I know how to do that, and I went to figure it out so I could tell her, and...well...technicall... Read more

opening a window in hope something occurs to me

Sunday, August 16, 2015      2 comments

2:02 pm most of the time i do a blog post it's because there's something in my noggin beggin' to get out. Not the case this time, I just clicked on the make blog entry button because, well, I'm 2 points away from getting to the bonus wheel, an... Read more

coming to an end

of the summer soccer season, nothing more important than that. But it was important in that the spring/summer season, in addition to being the first time in ten years I'd played any actually organized soccer (did play a few times out on the play... Read more

yesterday was a day

Wednesday, August 12, 2015      4 comments

Obligatory HI EVERYBODY! (even though my name isn't Dr. nick) since I haven't used this space in a while. 6 weeks or so, apparently. Which makes me think that "everybody" might just be the crickets. But I digress (and I haven't even started. Tha... Read more

What are the odds?

Monday, June 29, 2015      4 comments

Sunday, I went to a baseball game featuring the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox. During the minor monsoon that was Saturday night, I had no plans to do so, but I woke up Sunday morning, saw the sun streaming through the cracks in the cu... Read more

Dominos didn't give me my garlic dipping sauce!

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      3 comments

Which, in reflection, isn't entirely a bad thing. A major league baseball pitcher threw a no hitter on Sunday, and Dominos, as it has done the past few years, for the first two no hitters of the year, gave away 20000 pizzas. Now, I happened to c... Read more

where did Saturday go?

Sunday, June 21, 2015      3 comments

Did a whole lot of nothing yesterday. Was planning to go out and see a concert at night, but just didn't have the getupandgo when the time came, so I skipped it. And did absolutely nothing in its wake. Helping the sloth was the fact that HBO is ... Read more

I'm thinking ice cream

Friday, June 19, 2015      5 comments

I was thinking ice cream last night, too, and I walked past an ice cream parlor a block away from the nerd nite place, which I did make, because the insurance people called back and said they were too slammed to come see us last night, which wor... Read more

nerd nite tonight, perhaps

Thursday, June 18, 2015      3 comments

I've heard of the Nerd Nite events, basically a forum where two or three topics of interest are presented in lecture form, but I haven't managed to get to any of them. There's one tonight, with topics of roller derby, history of science, and the... Read more

Footgolf!

Wednesday, June 17, 2015      2 comments

Golf, except kicking a soccer ball around the course, rather than smacking golf balls with sticks. 'twas fun, I beat the folks I was playing with, mostly from actually having played soccer, and being able to kick the ball further than the slight... Read more

went to see some old canadian dudes at play yesterday

Monday, June 15, 2015      2 comments

Aka, a Rush concert, which was fantastic fun. They are playing their 40th anniversary tour, so the set list included gems from across their career, and save the fact they didn't include anything from my favorite album of theirs, there wasn't muc... Read more

Gambling only pays when you're winning

Wednesday, June 10, 2015      2 comments

Was listening to a fave album, which has a song that includes the line I used for the title. (there'd be more detail, but spark people saw fit to eat the blog I've been slaving over, so this is like the cliff notes version) Song: I kn... Read more

These are a few of my favorite songs (a top ten list, and then some)

Friday, May 29, 2015      2 comments

I posted a vid to facebook last week, saying it was probably one of my top ten favorite songs, if I thought about it...so I thought about it, and this is what I came up with for a ten favorite songs list, plus a couple items that might have made... Read more
