Iíve mentioned before the 4 flights of steps I climb to my 5th floor destination each work morning. 19 steps per floor, 76 steps up. Turns out I can get up to the 4th floor without breathing any heavier, but the 5th floor takes a couple of huffs... Read more
1: Realized that I took the elevator this morning, first time I hadnít climbed the stairs up to the 5th floor. I owe myself 76 steps somewhere.
2: This editionís title refers to the Spockís Beard song of that name, which occurred to me t... Read more
9: late start today, nasty headache on waking. Not sure why. Thought Iíd sleep another hour, slept right through that second alarm for an extra hour on top. Got to work at 9, rather than the 7 Iíve 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 Iíve 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.

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
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
Started rambling, and 12 minutes later, I shut up. Watch only if you're extremely bored, or need a cure for your insomnia.
