...a mystery to me. Depends on what I'm looking for, really, doesn't it? I can name a favorite cookie (Keebler's grasshoppers, girl scout thin mints), but these days, the standard of perfection lies in a different direction. I'm looking for that... Read more
Tonight's title brought to you by KMFDM. The second half of it, anyway.
The first bit refers to a quick pit stop made at the store between the gym and home to remedy an appalling lack... Read more
Actually, sorry, my perversions are entirely of the non-communicable kind. You can't have them!
That phrase is from a Dream Theater song, and just occurred to me a couple of hours ago, while reading about a flapjackgina. Yes, you read that ... Read more
So apparently, if you join a challenge, you have to do...stuff. Why did no one tell me this before??? WAAAHHHHHHHH!
Kidding. Mostly. Anyway.
A little confused by lack of any 'official' word that I'm allowed to play, but whatever. I'm ... Read more
It's like the toy kids play with, but with an additional sofa shaped accessory that can be plugged into the backside, don'tcha know?
Didn't make it to the gym today, but that's at least partly the fault of the gym, as it apparently closes a... Read more
No, wait, that's not right. More like, I'm the one that is occasionally paranoid about my knees. It all goes back to when I was a wee lad of 24, and I went to play basketball, and tried to change directions while running backwards on defense, an... Read more
Anyone a Detroit Pistons fan? If yes, you already know why I'm asking, and the rest of you get to wonder what the heck I'm talking about, because I'm mean like that. Sometimes. Not very often. But sometimes.*
Dropped in on a friend whose bi... Read more
Another blog title inspired totally by what I'm listening to at the moment, rather than any verse I might be reading while re-enacting scenes from Romeo and Juliet. I used to work in a town called Verona, and I remain disappointed that no one I ... Read more
First entry of 2013, and I think I'll recycle the title with which I began in 2012, referencing a top 10 favorite album, "A Pleasant Shade of Gray", by Fates Warning.
So where ... Read more
Or maybe it's the metaphysical cliff of the odometer rolling over on the calendar, I'm not sure. Either way, last day of a not fun year, and an inevitable pause for reflection, no matter how hard I tried to resist doing that, since, essentially,... Read more
On the list of blog entries I've done, I see one listed as December 29th, but others have mentioned that it's listed as on the 28th. The former software tester in me wonders if what you see depends on where you are? As in, I posted it at 12:xx a... Read more
If it were a real blog, I wouldn't be starting it at 11:52 PM, and attempting to see, when I hit Post after midnight, if it posts as a 12/28 entry, or a 12/29 entry. Granted, if it's the latter, it'll also extend my streak to 21 days in a row sc... Read more
I have not set hard and fast deadlines for any particular bit of weight loss, or exercise goal, other than the fact of moving making me get to the gym more often in order to score the ugly t shirt (which, for the record, works quite well for sle... Read more
Hook up the IV, and say goodbye to sleep. Funny thing, I have the first season on DVD, borrowed seasons 2 and 3 from a friend in Madison, and just never managed to get my hands on season 4. Nor did I manage to return season 3 to her before I lef... Read more
I already know I'm going to get slammed by violation on tolls blown through during my move here. I have the i-pass transponder the Illinois DOT uses, because over the last ten years I traveled through Illinois, going to, or through Chicago often... Read more
