Wasn't a good day food wise, and it remains to be seen how much sleep I'll manage, but I've arrived in Chicagoland, and am ready for work to begin. Oh, and I got a picture with a giant cardboard check for a thousand bucks. Seems like my buddy wh... Read more
Started rambling, and 12 minutes later, I shut up. Watch only if you're extremely bored, or need a cure for your insomnia.
As mentioned during the ramble:

I wasted the day, the week, really. I should have gone out and done something fun, since I start work on Monday. But I didn't, just was lazy. Wasn't able to straighten out my sleep schedule, so I suspect I might have a couple of rough days early... Read more
went to the gym intending only to wog a bit and do some ST and go home. Ended up not walking, playing pickleball for a good long time, and then doing less ST than I'd planned, but still more the the blc's tnt dictates, so I'm ok with that. The j... Read more
Last weekend’s blc bingo included an instruction to “listen to your feel good” song. I don’t know that I have a particular go to track for that purpose, but on the weekend, I turned to the band, Yes, and the song, “It’ll be a good day (the River... Read more

Exercise I don't wannas ruled Monday, too.
See if I manage to wake up at 6 AM tomorrow for the frisbee with the kiddies. The alarm will ring, a matter of whether I answer the bell. Right now, I re... Read more
The dazed part is just because I'm tired. Long day, though with no particular exertions. Watched a couple of games, played with the nephew, and chatted with the bro and sis-in-law, and her brother, who was visiting, a guy that has been in the co... Read more

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 I’ve 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.

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
