Ice is my friend

Sunday, January 22, 2012      4 comments

So, the other day, Giantmicrobe (imagine I know how to make links and this is a link to her page) made a blog about beating the ice to enable a workout, and I commented about how I was thinking of doing something ice related myself. Having said ... Read more

Work on Sunday is as blah as work on Saturday

Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

Worse, actually, when stuff doesn't work, and you're not able to work, which means the next three days will be worse off. But whatchugonnadoo? Apparently, my answer was go to the gym and go to a game night, always scheduled, but one I haven't ma... Read more

Aaaaand BOOM it's a week later

Saturday, January 14, 2012      2 comments

So, in the land of random thoughts that I MIGHT have shared, had sleep not intruded on previous nights. On Thursday night, I had the thought that though it feels like cheating, there's something kind of fun about weighing yourself just afte... Read more

The new (?) fitness tracker is more like it

Sunday, January 08, 2012      3 comments

Ok, so maybe it doesn't calculate how many calories I might have burned, but it's far better as far as being simple to use, and just allowing me to say, yes, this is how much I've done, as opposed to making a chore out of figuring out which part... Read more

Didn't realize I was broadcasting beyond the self-defined borders.

Guess I knew that each new blog post was available for perusal to all SP members for a limited time if they happened to click on the new blog post links on the front page, but other than that, I thought what I'd been scribbling was limited to ju... Read more

It's past midnight, why am I still up?

Thursday, January 05, 2012      2 comments

Well, for one thing, I'm a night owl, as I think I might have previously chronicled. For another, I've been ill the past two days, bad off enough to stay home from work, which is extra bad because a deadline looms two weeks away. I think I might... Read more

So where do we begin?

There's an album called, "A Pleasant Shade of Gray" by the band Fates Warning. It's one of my favorites, certainly among a top 20 all time on my list, and possibly in the top 10 (that's an exercise I haven't undertaken in a long time). I love it... Read more

Suppose I could edit that last one...but...

Feel like that thought should stand alone (even if it was prefaced by other stuff). Oh well. Point I think I was going to make is that the end of a year, which certainly had high points (the aforementioned nephew being highest among them), ... Read more

Wit optional

The fun thing about this blog thing is that they don't all have to be gems. I'm not writing for you, this is all about me, meee, meeeeee! And about me feeling like me wants to share me thoughts often enough so me keeps caring to check in to this... Read more

Who needs sleep, tell me what that's for?

Tuesday, December 27, 2011      1 comments

I might have thought coming back from the Eastern Time Zone back into the Central would have made it easier for me to fall asleep at an acceptable time, but no dice. I got back to Madison at about 5 PM, after 7 hrs driving (including food break,... Read more

i blame all typos on the smartphone

Wednesday, December 21, 2011      3 comments

This is a first for me, creating a blog post on a phone. A bit surprised I haven't tried it in the two months I've had the phone. The novelty of it has somehow driven out the thoughts that led me to see if I could even do it. In part, though, t... Read more

I read a book tonight!

Thursday, December 15, 2011      1 comments

Not that that's particularly earthshaking...but it's something I haven't done in a long time, just settling down with a book, and reading for hours on end. In a way, I cheated, in that it's one of my favorite books, "Red Sky at Morning", by Paul... Read more

Too many thoughts

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      4 comments

One thing I dislike about social media is the feeling that I can't just serially post the thinks that are rattling around my skull at any given time. As if each lucid piece of brilliance (hah!) must be given time to be fully appreciated by an au... Read more

I been a bad bad boy

Friday, December 02, 2011      3 comments

So Thanksgiving weekend, I forgot, deliberately, to pay attention to anything. Had fun, ate and drank a bunch, went to a Badger football game as if I were half my age...went into the student section, acting more like an undergrad than even when ... Read more

Goal #1 reached...just in time for Thanksgiving? Yikes!

Thursday, November 24, 2011      5 comments

The ten pound first goal I'd set for losing has shown up on the scale three days in a row. Scale checking obsession aside, I'm calling it official...and I'm also not setting a new goal quite yet, since the next three days of holiday festivities ... Read more
