Thoughts, Part 2
Tuesday, March 26, 2013      5 comments

1: Realized that I took the elevator this morning, first time I hadn’t climbed the stairs up to the 5th floor. I owe myself 76 steps somewhere. 2: This edition’s title refers to the Spock’s Beard song of that name, which occurred to me t... Read more
Thought an hour style part 1

9: late start today, nasty headache on waking. Not sure why. Thought I’d sleep another hour, slept right through that second alarm for an extra hour on top. Got to work at 9, rather than the 7 I’ve been doing. Had to park in the other parking lo... Read more

Not in my world, mind you, it's just a phrase I used in responding to another sparker's blog, and I thought it was a cool euphemism (figure it out) so I thought I'd share. Had a good day today, despite not still having access to everything... Read more

A Hot Pockets for 20 cents is a steal any day of the week. Not that I’ve had a Hot Pockets in a long time, maybe since I saw comedian Jim Gaffigan riffing on those things as pop tarts stuffed with nasty meat. http://www.youtube.com/... Read more
I know you’re sad because it’s winter, but I can promise you a spring

Saw an example of this at the airport Sunday afternoon, a guy in a line for higher status frequent fliers bullying his way past a guy who was first in line before an available Delta counter person, only for a tech to step in and shut down that p... Read more

Probably not the greatest thing that one of the first things I did after getting to the hotel today was going back out for a snackage run. Sure, the items procured will be consumed over a space of 4 days, or even taken into work and shared out, ... Read more
Kind of liberating, if you ask me

This whole having missed a day artificially, and having actually missed a day blogging, it's nice, now I won't bother worrying about whether I have anything to say, or report, and just check in if I feel like it. I feel like it now, obviously, e... Read more

So i posted that pic of me with the giant cardboard check to facebook, and got a nice response to it, at least in part because I also finally mentioned the new job on that forum. Even though I'd been telling you guys about it since it happened, ... Read more

Up 3.4 pounds this week, not necessarily unexpected, especially as I haven't gone the healthy route on food this week. That'll come, as I settle into the routine, I do believe. The unexpected part? That I was able to weigh in at all (on Wednesda... Read more

1) Think I just lost my 3 month blog a day streak. Even though, literally, I am scribbling this at 11:22 pm where I sit, I changed my SP setting to eastern time zone when I moved to Michigan, and as such, I'm sure it thinks it's already Tuesday ... Read more

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
Rambling on (now with moving pictures!) (video blog)
Saturday, March 09, 2013      2 comments

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: Rush, "The Pass": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v

Last day of leisure
Friday, March 08, 2013      4 comments

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
