should I feel guilty for being amused by flooding?
Thursday, April 18, 2013      4 comments

Ok, I know water rolling places where it should not go is a big deal. Hurricanes ripping stuff up, big storms causing rivers to meander, all bad news. I have a friend whose parents lost their home (her childhood home) to offshoots of the Mississ... Read more
Didn't quite make that flight
Saturday, April 13, 2013      12 comments

Kind of tough to catch a plane when it's due to take off at 6:45 AM and you wake up to hotel room clock telling you it's 6:40 AM. First time missing a flight, ever, as far as I can recall, and I don't qualify (yet) as a frequent flyer, so I turn... Read more
drowning sorrows in grease
Tuesday, April 09, 2013      6 comments

Beats alcohol as a solvent for the sorrows, anyway. Went to a Michigan bar called Duffy's down in Chicago to watch the national championship game with fellow Wolverines fans, and had most of a good time. It was a good game, and the boys in Maize... Read more

It's not so much that I can't iron things. It's just that I lack the magic touch to make them remained ironic the next morning. Or to keep them from looking like they've been run over by a thresher by the middle of the afternoon. Right now, that... Read more

Game of thrones in spanish is kinda weird. Probably because I've never seen an episode of the show before. Or perhaps it's because I don't know any Spanish. Great extended weekend with 'extended family', aka brother's in-laws. Between my ne... Read more
191 steps to date
Thursday, March 28, 2013      5 comments

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
Thoughts, Part 2

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
Thought an hour style part 1

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
The fan was excrementally assaulted
Monday, March 25, 2013      3 comments

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. http://www.youtube.com/... Read more

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
Dinomite!
Monday, March 18, 2013      4 comments

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
Sunday, March 17, 2013      5 comments

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
