Ok, granted, I did eat piggishly this weekend, a few beers to go with heavy metal on Friday night, a bit of fast food on Saturday, a buffet breakfast with a good friend this morning, but once again, I'm amused at what the scale revealed a minute... Read more
meant to go to the gym, but...

Story of my weight issues, I suppose, that going to the gym isn't something that I look forward to, but instead need to plan out, think ahead, and oftentimes, even with those plans in place, force myself to do when that time comes. I suppos... Read more
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

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

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
