Soul of a new machine
Got a computer today. Oddly, not particularly excited about it. Part of it may be because I went for value rather than bells and whistles, so I don't get the "check out my muscle machine" thrill. Another part of it may well be that, unlike, say ... Read more
upside down, inside out
Rough week. Fighting a huge dose of apathy, failing entirely to sticking to any sort of routine, not particularly caring about anything. Last week, I made it to the gym three times, and played basketball a 4th day. This week, Monday, I thought a... Read more
Not worried because this too shall be eaten eventually, maybe I need more lines of text to test out the force quit on the browser and the destruction of the blog post. And yes, I just quit a software qa job, and yet here I am after midnight test... Read more

From ready to roll to rolling over in two and a half depressing hours
Got home at about 6:30 last night, planning on hitting the gym. Grabbed a glass of milk, a couple of cookies for fuel, and set to a couple of quick tasks I needed to do. By 7, I was done with those, rested, digested, and ready to go to the gym, ... Read more
Title of 7.4% less doom
BOOM! (sorry, just echoing the construction related dynamite blast outside my window...curious if this sort of blasting registers at all on earthquake monitors? Anyone know anybody in the US Geological Services? I mean, anyone who doesn't work w... Read more
I survived Megadeth!
Didn't have any crowd surfers drop in unexpectedly on top of my noggin last night, thanks, in part to bounders who actually pointed out incoming tumbling human missiles as they traversed the sea of arms and hands. I'm seriously not recalling any... Read more
I'm going to go see megadeth tonight, a band I haven't seen play since 2007, just before I interviewed for the job I now have. Funny thing, that night in September 2007, a crowd surfer landed on my head, knocking me out for a moment. I don't rem... Read more
I been a bad bad boy
Well, maybe. Sorta kinda, but not 100%. Ish.
See, I haven’t been checking in here much lately as my computer at home is dying, and refuses to stay awake for more than ten minutes at a time. Combine that with being busy at work, and I’m just... Read more

So I had a 500 word bloggy thingy all ready to post, and actually I thought I had posted it, but it appears to have been eaten. This on top of another post I was trying to do on my phone on Sunday (what with the home computer giving up the ghost... Read more
Happy Rush Day!
2/1/12, get it? (for the uninitiated, Rush is a band that has an album titled "2112". We fans have been celebrating all day...any excuse for a party, right? :)
For my 10 minutes of exercise today, I got up and danced around while watching ... Read more
Time to set a goal, methinks
After getting down below the 195 mark, I set the end of February as a finish line for the next 5 pounds, and for a while I was doing well towards that goal. But then I ran into the rollercoaster of last week, and now I haven't a clue whether tha... Read more
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
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
