If sleep comes like a drug...I need more drugs

Sunday, February 24, 2013      4 comments

U2 with the title inspiration, from the Joshua Tree track, In God's Country.
7Kch-J78Qb8 Referring to the fact that I haven't exactly kept a normal sleep schedule while jobless. I'm insomniac ... Read more

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

Saturday, February 23, 2013      13 comments

...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

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      4 comments

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

Making a salad and not eating it

Monday, February 18, 2013      4 comments

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

I'd never make it on Jersey Shore

Wednesday, February 13, 2013      4 comments

Gym, tan, laundry, that's one of that show's enduring mottos. Only managed to do one of the three today, the laundry part. Didn't go to the gym, a somewhat planned omission; after all, I'd been there the previous 4 days. Bigger reason, I was sor... Read more

Lost Reflection

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      6 comments

One of the things keeping me on track is the realization that losing weight is just a first step. The second, and more important step, one that is supposed to last for the rest of the life, is locking in the habits needed to keep the weight off.... Read more

Two! Two Miles! Ha ha ha!

Monday, February 11, 2013      8 comments

Legs aren't quite happy with me, but after suggesting yesterday that I should consider going for a longer distance than one mile of wogging, I went two this evening, broken down as follows (12 laps for a mile): walk 1 lap, run 4 laps, W1 R3 W... Read more

relearning old tricks

Sunday, February 10, 2013      2 comments

Played indoor volleyball this weekend, first time since early 2005. You know, before I hit my 30s? Saturday was fun. Sure, I had no idea where I was supposed to be moving on the court, but the people around me had no problem directing me, and ac... Read more
