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 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

If this is what 40 looks like, I'll take it!

(by now) traditional posting of the Fish song "Worm in a Bottle" on May 21, because it contains the line "happy birthday to me"

not exactly a smashing end to the 30s

Wednesday, May 20, 2015      4 comments

Last day of my 30s, and my goal is to not break myself when playing soccer tonight. That would be doubly bad, what with having the baseball/softball watching doubleheader plans tomorrow, where walking is a key feature to actually getting to and ... Read more

lazy day

Tuesday, May 19, 2015      3 comments

went to sleep way too late, partly because of doing laundry from the work trip late, partly from imbibing caffeine late, and then woke up late this morning. Not a bad thing, entirely. Sometimes you just need to catch up on the sleep thing. ... Read more

i guess it's not particularly important after all

Monday, May 18, 2015      3 comments

You know how I mentioned having a hernia, and a doc mentioned setting up an appointment for talking about surgery and all that? Well, the surgery people called, while I was away, to a line that hasn't been my primary phone number in a dozen year... Read more

eek, i just wet my pants

the makeshift icepack from the contusions on my knees that i suffered due to jumping on the armchair and having that tip over and introduce my kneecaps to the window ledge when I tried to help the kid who came in with extra sheets to try and blo... Read more

and the weekend ended with me and my army taking down the germans

Sunday, May 10, 2015      3 comments

So, Saturday was a brilliant weather day, and after typing out the previous missive, I went to the Iowa Capitol. It was pretty cool, as most seats of government tend to be; after all, it's a state's (whether a state state, or a federal state) ch... Read more

wow, what is this weird feeling? Is that...hunger?

Saturday, May 09, 2015      4 comments

Went back to work yesterday, made it through most of the day, and then they gave out celebratory DQ Blizzards in the afternoon (2 o clockish) for making it through week 1 of the go-live, and I shouldn't have had the last half of mine, i really s... Read more

Sick puppy I am

Thursday, May 07, 2015      7 comments

Sucks to be sick ad missing out on hours when you're getting paid hourly. Worse, the fact that you're here to do a job, which is helping people navigate a new system, and not being able to do that for them. I basically started feeling really out... Read more

this time for real, last road trip before I turn 40!

Thursday, April 30, 2015      2 comments

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

Wednesday, April 29, 2015      3 comments

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

Tuesday, April 28, 2015      4 comments

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

Monday, April 27, 2015      2 comments

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

multiplying insects

Sunday, April 26, 2015      4 comments

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

Saturday, April 25, 2015      10 comments

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
