Next week will be a long one, just waiting to start work. Guess I have plenty of homework to keep me busy, but I'm sure that won't be particularly exciting. Since I haven't made much (any?) of an attempt to catch up with old friends in this area... Read more
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
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 http://www.youtube.com/w 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
U2 with the title inspiration, from the Joshua Tree track, In God's Country.
Referring to the fact that I haven't exactly kept a normal sleep schedule while jobless. I'm insomniac ... Read more
...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
Before you call PETA on me, do take a look at this video:
Ok, maybe if birdy-cide makes you squeamish, maybe you better quit after the first 30 seconds, when life is still ski... Read more
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
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
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
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
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
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
