Amazing the emotions that can be invested in objects

Monday, October 29, 2012      4 comments

Gave a ring to a girl once. Got it back, when she dumped me for a guy named Jesus. (Translation: she broke off the engagement for reasons of religion.) I took the ring back to the place where it was created, and left it in their hands, on consig... Read more

Made some bloody chicken last night

And no, I'm not being British, swearing about a bird. Rather, my friend Ian holds what he calls Odd Tuesday potlucks, a more or less biweekly opportunity to get together and eat and laugh with friends. The event goes on hiatus during the summert... Read more

Coupons are mocking me

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      0 comments

I got the Entertainment Book for Madison for this past year. If you're not familiar with it, it's a book of coupons, largely 2 for 1s from a large variety of vendors/stores, etc in a given area. Problem is, I haven't really used it all that well... Read more

Mood matching the clouds

Friday, October 19, 2012      0 comments

Been in a grey, negative moods the past few days. May be just an extension of being sick last week, more likely from all but having made a decision that I didn't want to, but there you have it. My mood today matches that of the clouds outside, a... Read more

Oughta go to the gym

Wednesday, October 17, 2012      0 comments

Baseball likely isn't happening tonight, with a huge swath of precip bearing down on Detroit. The game is being delayed as I type, the kind of no rain "rain delay" that has fans wondering whether New York, on the verge of elimination, isn't gett... Read more

The new profile pic might be a lie

Tuesday, October 16, 2012      5 comments

One aspect of the body image issue is that no matter how decently I might appear on occasion, I still feel like a fatass. I'm well aware of this, and yet, it surprises me greatly when I see a picture of myself appearing as I do in this profile p... Read more

For what it's worth

Monday, October 15, 2012      0 comments

Listening to the "Blink of an Eye" album by the band Enchant today, which includes the song "Monday", featuring the lyric, "Blame it on Monday". Nothing really to blame, I'm having a decent day, but it is Monday, after all. Made it to the g... Read more

Mostly there

Just need this little itching in the throat that explodes into full on coughing to go away. Haven't done any exercise all week, unless you could claim cardio from getting an elevated heart rate from watching baseball playoff games on TV. My team... Read more

The plague lifts but slowly

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

I woke up Sunday morning with a sore throat, but not much more than that. Went out to see Michigan volleyball play at the UW Fieldhouse, which didn't help things much, as Wisconsin's ladies took the Wolverines to the woodshed, winning in three e... Read more

The road to dietary hell is paved 170 calories at a time

Tuesday, October 09, 2012      3 comments

One mythical benefit of eating better that I have yet to experience is the one where your immune system gets stronger as you treat yourself better. I'd expect to result in being sick less, to being able to fight off colds when they do strike, bu... Read more

i was being so good until all of a sudden i wasn't

Wednesday, October 03, 2012      2 comments

And in that moment(s), chips and salsa and nacho cheese and oreos and a few pieces of Werther's candies found their way down my gullet. Why? Well, in partial defense, I actually was hungry, as it was 10 pm, and 'dinner' had been a 4 pm bowl of s... Read more

Go Tigers!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      2 comments

Pennant race baseball can be exciting or hair loss inducing (as in, when you feel like tearing it out over your team's inept defense?), but I can't complain about being a fan of a team that in recent years has been in the mix more often than not... Read more

365th day on SP

Monday, September 24, 2012      5 comments

Actually, because of the leap year, and because on not recalling precisely when I first logged in, that's an approximation, but I think of September 25 as the date, so that's what I'm going with. Scribbled this following note on the sept 25-oct ... Read more

not crossing the line in anything approaching fine fashion

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      2 comments

I just updated my status with the observation that I was stumbling toward the 1 year mark on Spark, and thought that thought could stand a bit more fleshing out. I mark that anniversary probably late next week (Class of sept 25-Oct 1 from last y... Read more

Being bad(ish) today, foodwise, Doritos and soda pop forming the staples of today's diet. Oh, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Umm, oops. I'm sure the scale will punish me appropriately next week, especially since I'm looking at what ought to be a fun... Read more
