Paranoid knees

Friday, January 04, 2013      7 comments

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

New year, new gym, blah, blah, blaha

Thursday, January 03, 2013      6 comments

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

Poetry For The Poisoned

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      4 comments

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

So where do we begin?

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      4 comments

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. www.youtube.com/watch?v=

Going over the physical cliff

Monday, December 31, 2012      5 comments

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

Whither the 29th?

Sunday, December 30, 2012      4 comments

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

This is only a test

Saturday, December 29, 2012      7 comments

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

Day 28 (of December)

Friday, December 28, 2012      5 comments

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

The West Wing, streaming on Netflix?

Thursday, December 27, 2012      3 comments

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

Holiday tolls

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      4 comments

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

Arriving somewhere...but not here

Tuesday, December 25, 2012      2 comments

If anyone's stalking closely enough, they'll notice that I just dipped my toe into the 'community journal' forum and started a topic with that same name. As I typed there, that seems to be the quick thought, talking to myself version of what I e... Read more

It's snowing snowballs and snowbricks out there!

Monday, December 24, 2012      8 comments

Well, it's snowing, anyway. The entry title is from the hallmark cards ad that just came across the TV as I clicked on the button to open this blog post. Fortunate that it did, because I didn't have any idea what I was going to scribble on about... Read more

if you go to a gym, do you notice the other people there?

Sunday, December 23, 2012      10 comments

snack attack tonight, hweet thins (ask stewie about this) and cookies and milks. no, singular on that last one. apparently, capitalization is optional tonight, and I'm opting against. first week in michigan ends with about a three pound gain, at... Read more

Chained to a bandwagon with no wheels

Saturday, December 22, 2012      4 comments

That's how I used to describe my fandom of the Detroit Lions. I'm a fan because of an accident of birth and geography: I was born and grew up in southeastern Michigan, and as such, I like the Lions. But it's hard being a Lions fan, when they was... Read more

Attention all planets of the Solar Federation: WE HAVE ASSUMED CONTROL!

Friday, December 21, 2012      6 comments

it's 12/21/12, or 21/12/12 if you prefer, either way, there a 21 and a 12 juxtaposed, and an excuse, not that I ever need one, to listen to my favorite band, Rush. Of course, I spun the album 2112, then went on to other albums of their, eventual... Read more
