Hey look, I got a shiny thingy

Of course, since instagram is kinda dumb, and sparkpeople is kinda dumb, you're going to have to click on this link to see it, rather than being able to see it here.

so the last time I posted, I reported getting over whatever had been ailing me for two weeks at that time. And then I went on a little Ohio adventure, catching Michigan playing in the NCAA tournament in Dayton,and then scooting over to Columbus ... Read more

Feeling it, I am. Throat hasn't hurt today at all, the first time I can say that in over two weeks. 3 hours at the gym. Of course, only an hour and a bit more spent on exercise, and rather tired at the end of that. The rest spent playing a ... Read more

11 days of sore throat in a row

Monday, March 07, 2016      4 comments

Stupid lingering cold which isn't a virus and therefore not susceptible to a antibiotic. Actually, I'm wondering if it isn't just an injury situation now, from clearing my throat so often over the last couple of weeks. And really, it isn't just ... Read more

everything gets magnified after a scare

Tuesday, February 16, 2016      3 comments

Certainly the case after I spent nearly the entire month of December getting over a case of vertigo. Now, you blow your nose a little too hard, and get momentarily dizzy, and you wonder. Or you get spun around while playing pickleball and the co... Read more

made it to the gym yesterday!

Tuesday, February 09, 2016      3 comments

And man am I ever sore today! Oh well, beats sitting around like a lump. Ended up going to see a hockey game yesterday, since after having lumped around the previous couple of weeks, actually feeling like going out and doing something was such a... Read more

Same stuff, different week

Sunday, February 07, 2016      2 comments

That cold was dying two Mondays ago, but it didn't get the memo, and its remnant lingers on, still. Worst is how my ears are all clicky, and that old trick to clear the ears of pressure (hold your nose and blow) is occasionally useful, and occas... Read more

out, darned snot

Sunday, January 31, 2016      4 comments

Ok, so that title isn't exactly Shakespeare. I could have got a little closer if it wasn't for the swear filter. But there you have it. As has been the case for the last few days, I'm 90% over that cold, but that last little bit of phlegm stuck ... Read more

Loudest cough in the ER, though I'm not the patient

Thursday, January 28, 2016      2 comments

In the waiting room, anyway. 5 hours ago. Last time I came to the hospital, with my mom a couple of weeks ago, I suspect I got this lovely cold as a parting gift. So did my dad. Mine mostly went away, though I am still hacking. Dad's got w... Read more

asked...and denied

Tuesday, January 26, 2016      4 comments

No, not what you might be thinking based on a title like that, there were no romantic feelings bruised in this quarter. Rather, I was given an opportunity to take a short contract, and I was the one doing the denying, because it involves a part ... Read more

Death sucks

Saturday, January 23, 2016      6 comments

Cancer, too. Been a weird week, since Monday night, I heard about two people I know falling victim to one or the other. The death was a thoroughly unexpected one, I mean the guy was 34, prime of his life and all that, just recently engaged, etc... Read more

Went to the auto show Sunday

Sunday, January 17, 2016      1 comments

The North American International Auto Show, that is. Also known as the Detroit Auto Show, the biggest in the country, as far as I know. I went last year as well and this time it wasn't quite as good. Maybe that's because there were fewer concept... Read more

You're just going to have to excuse that whole pizza I ate last night and today

Friday, January 15, 2016      4 comments

'parent in hospital' type of excuse, the hospital being the stressful locale from yesterday's entry. No big deal, getting released today (probably?), but everything's worse when you get up at 4 am to trail an ambulance to the ER (to be fair, I w... Read more

ran across some deer on the road at 4:30 AM

Thursday, January 14, 2016      4 comments

Across, mind you, not over. I did see those animals coming onto the road ahead of me, and was able to stop with plenty of room to spare. Nice of them to cross at a well lit area, really. And 6 of them did just that, with another following a few ... Read more

More ugly weather

Tuesday, January 12, 2016      3 comments

Days like these, I'm temporarily ok that there's nowhere I have to be in the morning. 4 inches of snow overnight, and people have apparently forgotten how to drive in the stuff. If we were in Huntsville, Alabama, to pick a random southern town, ... Read more
