Going over the physical cliff
Monday, December 31, 2012      5 comments

Or maybe it's the metaphysical cliff of the odometer rolling over on the calendar, I'm not sure. Either way, last day of a not fun year, and an inevitable pause for reflection, no matter how hard I tried to resist doing that, since, essentially,... Read more
Whither the 29th?
Sunday, December 30, 2012      4 comments

On the list of blog entries I've done, I see one listed as December 29th, but others have mentioned that it's listed as on the 28th. The former software tester in me wonders if what you see depends on where you are? As in, I posted it at 12:xx a... Read more
This is only a test
Saturday, December 29, 2012      7 comments

If it were a real blog, I wouldn't be starting it at 11:52 PM, and attempting to see, when I hit Post after midnight, if it posts as a 12/28 entry, or a 12/29 entry. Granted, if it's the latter, it'll also extend my streak to 21 days in a row sc... Read more
Day 28 (of December)
Friday, December 28, 2012      5 comments

I have not set hard and fast deadlines for any particular bit of weight loss, or exercise goal, other than the fact of moving making me get to the gym more often in order to score the ugly t shirt (which, for the record, works quite well for sle... Read more
The West Wing, streaming on Netflix?
Thursday, December 27, 2012      3 comments

Hook up the IV, and say goodbye to sleep. Funny thing, I have the first season on DVD, borrowed seasons 2 and 3 from a friend in Madison, and just never managed to get my hands on season 4. Nor did I manage to return season 3 to her before I lef... Read more
Holiday tolls
Wednesday, December 26, 2012      4 comments

I already know I'm going to get slammed by violation on tolls blown through during my move here. I have the i-pass transponder the Illinois DOT uses, because over the last ten years I traveled through Illinois, going to, or through Chicago often... Read more
Arriving somewhere...but not here
Tuesday, December 25, 2012      2 comments

If anyone's stalking closely enough, they'll notice that I just dipped my toe into the 'community journal' forum and started a topic with that same name. As I typed there, that seems to be the quick thought, talking to myself version of what I e... Read more
It's snowing snowballs and snowbricks out there!
Monday, December 24, 2012      8 comments

Well, it's snowing, anyway. The entry title is from the hallmark cards ad that just came across the TV as I clicked on the button to open this blog post. Fortunate that it did, because I didn't have any idea what I was going to scribble on about... Read more
if you go to a gym, do you notice the other people there?
Sunday, December 23, 2012      10 comments

snack attack tonight, hweet thins (ask stewie about this) and cookies and milks. no, singular on that last one. apparently, capitalization is optional tonight, and I'm opting against. first week in michigan ends with about a three pound gain, at... Read more
Chained to a bandwagon with no wheels
Saturday, December 22, 2012      4 comments

That's how I used to describe my fandom of the Detroit Lions. I'm a fan because of an accident of birth and geography: I was born and grew up in southeastern Michigan, and as such, I like the Lions. But it's hard being a Lions fan, when they was... Read more
Attention all planets of the Solar Federation: WE HAVE ASSUMED CONTROL!
Friday, December 21, 2012      6 comments

it's 12/21/12, or 21/12/12 if you prefer, either way, there a 21 and a 12 juxtaposed, and an excuse, not that I ever need one, to listen to my favorite band, Rush. Of course, I spun the album 2112, then went on to other albums of their, eventual... Read more
PUDDIN' ATTACK!
Thursday, December 20, 2012      2 comments

Oh man, did I ever get sucked into a neon green trap last night. I tried to beat it off with a fanged steel weapon, but the more blows I struck, the thicker the enemy became, until I was forced, under duress, to trap it in the Cave of Ice. And e... Read more
Temptation...why won't you leave me alone?
Wednesday, December 19, 2012      5 comments

Drove 60 miles to see The Hobbit with friends, and as I returned towards the home base, I took a bit of a detour to see what remained and what had changed since last I lived in the area. Among the things I noticed were a bunch of fast food-... Read more
Countdown to the end of the world!
Tuesday, December 18, 2012      6 comments

Four days until nothing happens! Oh my goodness, I can wait! Yesterday was Monday. Even though Monday as a concept somewhat loses its power to annoy when it doesn't equal a return to a workplace after a two day respite from the drudgery, th... Read more
The gravity is different in the eastern time zone, I swear it is
Monday, December 17, 2012      4 comments

Or maybe it was the McDonalds for breakfast, KFC for lunch and chinese food at dinner? At least the scale wasn't as mean as the last time I came to Michigan for a visit, where I managed to gain 7 pounds from driving 8 hours, WITHOUT stopping for... Read more
