Worm in a bottle

Tuesday, May 21, 2013      7 comments

Title references a song by Fish. No, not the hippie jam band with Trey Anastasio leading the way, but rather the 6í6Ē stone bald Scotsman who once upon a generation ago sang for the band Marillion. You might recall their hit ďKayleighĒ, if youír... Read more

Equilibrium?

Friday, May 17, 2013      4 comments

I spent the last couple of weeks feeling blobby, never getting down to the fitness room in the hotel despite intentions. Got home, weighed myself for the first time in three weeks...and got the same number as I did then. So that's good, I guess.... Read more

Swedish metal weekend has commenced

Friday, May 10, 2013      5 comments

And I'm seriously considering a stop into Ikea for some meatballs just to keep with the theme. I'm sticking around the Chicago area this weekend, rather than heading back to Michigan, for the purpose of catching a couple of concerts. Tonigh... Read more

I've started this blog ten times...

Saturday, May 04, 2013      8 comments

....and I keep falling asleep before writing it. What did you think, I was going to come out with some huge confession, or something? No such thing going on in my boring life. I went to the library and got a haircut today, that's about all ... Read more

but for a lack of hanky

Wednesday, April 24, 2013      5 comments

a) There was no panky b) Snot was running down his nose c) No hammeriní occurred this day d) None of the above I think my mindís off in the land of d) but Iím not sure. a) and b) donít apply, but c) might be accurate, since after hand... Read more

Youíve heard the term, ďA mess of friesĒ, right?

Saturday, April 20, 2013      9 comments

It almost came to fruition the other night. I thought I might grab grub at one particular fast food outlet, but the parking lot was crowded, the lobby looked crowded, and I wasnít in the mood for a crowd, so I drove on, just riding down Route 12... Read more

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

my shirt looks like it's botoxed

Monday, April 08, 2013      7 comments

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

Scalar possession

Tuesday, April 02, 2013      10 comments

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

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      5 comments

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

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      3 comments

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
