I was just asking for it
I crowed the other day in this space about weighing less than my brother. The scale gods didn't take kindly to the bragging, and have nailed me with a sharp climb in the digital readout. Now, it could be sodium weight, or it might be cookies and... Read more
I suppose whiplash beats a concussion
Of course, these are all self-diagnoses, but I'm pretty well convinced that I did not get concussed Wednesday, but instead seem to have suffered a bit of whiplash. There was a headache that went and came in a desultory fashion, but it was of the... Read more
How hypochondriac do I want to be?
Yeah, I used hypochondriac as an adjective. Whatchugonnadoaboutit?
Went to the gym Wednesday, played some basketball. In the course of the game, I slid over to defend a play, and was knocked over, my head hitting the ground. I was fine, sta... Read more
As in, my mind is a blank. Clicked the "Add a blog entry" button with something to say, but that was 15 minutes ago, before I realized that I ought to do something more pressing at the moment, and I've returned to the computer with absolutely no... Read more
Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter
Was feeling unmotivated to do much of anything. Flipped on the TV to a swamp scene. A little green thing dispensing wisdom. Spent the next hour and a half doing little more. Had to watch The Empire Strikes Back. One of my top 5 movies.
Did... Read more
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
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
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
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
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...
...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
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
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.

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