Time to face the fear

Thursday, February 28, 2013      7 comments

Feeling chaotic today, thousand things running through the mind all at once all day. I imagine the scene to be not unlike Pamplona in July. Trying to slow down and isolate the thoughts so as to tackle each task in its turn, but Iíve been unsucce... Read more

Taxes are fun

Wednesday, February 27, 2013      4 comments

Trying to figure out how the reciprocal agreement between Illinois and Michigan? Tons of fun! Especially when it turns out there's not that much apparent trickiness to figuring it out, after having spent over an hour hunting down the appropriate... Read more

Move along, nothing to see, just opening up a space to collate all the instances and times of my febrile attempts at running. Tuesday (post ultimate) 2/26, 15 minutes for one mile plus one lap, mile in 13:30. 1W/4R/2W/4R/2W Monday (pos... Read more

The stoned out of its gourd moon at the end of this Little Caesars clip
atch?v=tgbTk6N5kwM fills me with rage. But not enough to not grab some of their product when I went to see the Detroit Red Wings ... Read more

The universe might have just given me a giant middle finger...

...and I might be enjoying its joke. Crazy, huh? Still not counting chickens, mind you, but there be cracks in the shells. The title refers to my War Nerve post (should have titled it that, but instead went with the "I look at my refle... Read more

Poisoning Pigeons in the Park

Before you call PETA on me, do take a look at this video:

Call me slug

Thursday, February 21, 2013      7 comments

I'm having a lazy week. Well, kind of. I mean, I made it to the gym Saturday, Monday and Tuesday. I meant to go this afternoon, but then had to wait by the phone for a call (or by my laptop for a document, but that's much less Hollywood), which ... Read more

Step by step

I've been listening to the "Twisted Into Form" album by the band Forbidden today. They're an 80s thrash band that I wasn't familiar with until a couple of years ago. The first time I saw them play live (late 2010), I went because I won free tick... Read more

Almost kept up with the kiddies today

Third time going out and joining in on a high school team's ultimate practice. Way too early in the morning, at 7 AM, a time I don't usually like admitting exists. I met the modest goal of actually completing the warm up run, 6 laps of the gym t... Read more

No, this isnít a case of good intentions gone awry down McDonaldís way. I just finally got off my duff and volunteered at a food pantryís community kitchen, here in the Ann Arbor area. Got to make a salad, during the process of which I realized ... Read more

Falling to Pisces

Sunday, February 17, 2013      6 comments

Spied Reese's Pieces at the gas station and resisted, just punning on the fact that the fishy astrological sign kicks into gear in a couple of days, rather than any precipitous fall off any bandwagon. Either that or referring to the fish I had a... Read more

We are finding who we are

Saturday, February 16, 2013      2 comments

Isn't that what this trip is about, anyway? Figuring out who and what we are, where we belong, physically, mentally? Yeah, I'm stumbling and bumbling now, but eventually I'll be rumbling, just a matter of fine tuning the engine of my life, findi... Read more

I look at my reflection and I see an enemy

Friday, February 15, 2013      7 comments

Iím sick of myself. For a whole host of reasons that I typed out and then erased because I donít feel like sharing (yes, an inability to ask for help is on that list). The job thing, that probably plays a huge role in why this is bubbling o... Read more

Catch the VD fever!

Thursday, February 14, 2013      5 comments

No, Iím not bitter. Thatís only been the case once, really, even though Iíve been unattached far more than not on Valentineís Day, a celebration of a guy getting lynched and beheaded. Okay, maybe twice on the bitterness front. One year I got dum... Read more
