Leading indicators?

Wednesday, November 21, 2012      1 comments

Usually wait for a scale reading to be consistent across three days before posting it on here, but since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I went ahead and noted that I hit 179 lbs this morning. Maybe the exercise is paying off scale wise, after all. An... Read more

lack of html is gonna kill me

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      5 comments

Spent the last half hour, 40 minutes rambling in this space, and apparently, because I used a less than sign and a greater than sign at one point of the ramble, the site interpreted it as html, and rejected it, and when I "click here to go back"... Read more

Stayed out of the scrum

Friday, November 16, 2012      3 comments

Got to the venue to see Conniption, a local band, playing already...at 7 pm, when I thought they were to play at 8. Eschewed whatever was left of the Black Dahlia Murder's set to watch those guys, as they're a fantastic band, hopefully slated fo... Read more

patience can be a virtuous flaming double edged sword

Thursday, November 15, 2012      3 comments

A tale from Monday: went to Popeye's for a bit of fried chicken. Got there and was seduced by the idea of crawfish instead, so I ordered that. It wasn't ready, so I grabbed a seat, chatting with the girl behind the counter. Didn't have any timel... Read more

the kids beat me up

Saturday, November 10, 2012      2 comments

Went to a concert last night and decided to get in on the crowd action rather than watching from the wings or balcony...now, the bands playing included Hatebreed, In Flames and Lamb of God, so the point of getting into the crowd was, in addition... Read more

One problem with using the site on a phone...

Saturday, November 10, 2012      4 comments

...and infrequently at that, is the possibility that a typo might slip past you for a few days. Like the one where I apparently managed to rack up a thousand fitness minutes in the first four days of the month. Yes, I did a lot of walking over t... Read more

Heck of a night

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      4 comments

Ended up going to the local Dem watch party, aka Tammy Baldwin’s victory rally. Not that we were nearly as confident of that as we were that President would carry Wisconsin. As we wrapped up making phone calls all the way up to the 8 PM deadline... Read more

I picked sleep over Springsteen this morning

Monday, November 05, 2012      8 comments

The President was in Madison this morning to start the last day before election day, with Bruce Springsteen along to warm up the crowd. I was definitely warm, but that was because upon waking at 5 AM, I rolled back over and went to sleep. ... Read more

well if I'd known Al Franken was going to be there...

Sunday, November 04, 2012      6 comments

Spent all Saturday afternoon knocking on doors, participating in the get out the vote operations. Got to meet the guy who'll be the next Congressman from this district....but if only I'd volunteered for the 9 am shift rather than the noon shift.... Read more

can't sleep, clowns will eat me

Friday, November 02, 2012      4 comments

Well, can't sleep, anyway. Clowns can go...never mind. Political ads are all but unceasing, but unlike a lot of people, I'm indifferent. I'm somewhat of a politics junkie, meaning I can be found logging into political websites on a near dai... Read more

candy, candy, I see candy, everywhere I look

Thursday, November 01, 2012      2 comments

The roommates were prepared for Halloween, candy poured into a cauldron, just ready for the trickertreaters. Only problem, they didn't really show up. Sure, a few hardy souls knocked on our door, but by the time I left for the gym, around 8:30 p... Read more

Apparently, I don't like sparking on Thursdays

Wednesday, October 31, 2012      2 comments

I've missed checking in and at least spinning the wheel on, apparently, 5 occasions over the past two months, and three of those days have been Thursdays. No explanation for it. I'm not doing anything on Thursdays that would preclude me from pee... Read more

reality is something that you rise above

Tuesday, October 30, 2012      3 comments

Well, that bout of reminiscing/sadness was short lived. Resulted in a trip to Burger King and to Dunkin Donuts (well, the latter was really driven by a coupon I thought expired in two days), and caused me to skip out on something I'd otherwise w... Read more

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

Thursday, October 25, 2012      4 comments

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
