2013.08.07: August Updates, Part 1 ...?

Wednesday, August 07, 2013      0 comments

I've been reminded before by someone very dear to me that August is the worst month ... it's the month in which things go wrong ... ... and they have for us before, including the loss of a beloved pet a couple years ago. And if you recall, ... Read more

Dinner: Quick, Dirty, and Delicious

Friday, April 19, 2013      0 comments

'Top Chef Canada' is back and we're watching it; it was also our dinner time, and I decided to try something new (to me): oysters. I. It's possible that as a child I had oyster stew or chowder or similar, perhaps just oysters served... Read more

2013.04.15: Midmonth Update

Tuesday, April 16, 2013      1 comments

1. This past week I've gotten up earlier in the morning (relatively speaking) and had productive writing hours. Yay, me! Is it as much forward diss-progress as I'd like? Not exactly, but it's something. 2. Ms. S. and I are working our way t... Read more

2013.04.01: I think I need a break.

Monday, April 01, 2013      6 comments

A bit of a SP break, that is. Every day I collect the points, but the point of doing so is lost. It's become a game without goals ... it's just something I do ... minimum of 100 points a day, that's the task. It's a lot of links to click on... Read more

2013.03.30: Run, you clever boy.

Saturday, March 30, 2013      0 comments

If only I were that clever boy ... with a time machine, sonic screwdriver, something bigger on the inside ... We got in some 'Doctor Who' and the usual rotation, and during dinner a so-so small-budget ($7 million) horror-ish movie. Earlier ... Read more

2013.03.29: "I'm not scared. No more Pull-Ups."

Saturday, March 30, 2013      1 comments

"Nice." Really ... that's how "2012" ends. And so you must wonder, as Ms. S. wisely posed the question to me, how much money was paid for that product placement? I. 'The X-Files' and 'Millennium'? In brief: in the latter ("Th... Read more

2013.03.28: "Emotion is also nature, and the rule of decency is something artificial"

Friday, March 29, 2013      0 comments

"Wrath of the Titans" is not actually any good. It has a large (enough) budget, it has a(n over-)qualified cast, and its plot is (moderately) coherent. It is not, however, any good. It's not even mediocre; it is inanely mundane and its grea... Read more

2013.03.27: Sugar rush!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013      0 comments

Oh. My. It's like Feb. 14th all over again ... but better! Milk chocolate? Check. Dark chocolate? Check. But, wait ... we also had 'rotation' (about which I might write were one of my wrists not held down by a black and white cat)... Read more

2013.03.26: Fun, not quite in the sun!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      0 comments

Cooked and cleaned today in anticipation of a pre-Easter dinner with Ms. S.'s parents, and I found it glorious. 1. The social aspect, the stories, all that, are our own personal matter. 2. We got lots of chocolate as an Easter gift, th... Read more

2013.03.25: "Goopta... is god."

Monday, March 25, 2013      2 comments

... quoth Ratfinkovich. "In 1979, Onan Goopta molted his earthly encumbrance to pursue his Selfisophical research in another dimension. That means, he died of prostate cancer." I. Before watching "Schizogeny", with its somewhat ps... Read more

2013.03.24: My day off

Sunday, March 24, 2013      0 comments

I'll consider this my day of rest. I have little to report, to communicate, or to reflect upon at the moment. 1. Chores were undertaken and doing them felt good. Not because they -- changing sheets and hand-towels, doing laundry, drying and... Read more

2013.03.23: March Madness ... indeed!

Saturday, March 23, 2013      2 comments

And it rained today. And rained and rained. We got in some quality tv-together-time (T3). 1. 'MIllennium' ... Frank Black accompanies Peter Watts on a not-quite-sanctioned trip to Germany to find the long-lost hand of St. Sebastian. It's as... Read more

2013.03.22: A Day Off, or finally immanentizing the Eschaton.

Friday, March 22, 2013      1 comments

Some reading, little work, some pain. I. I managed to 'acquire' some lower back pain, pain that had, mostly, left me around the beginning of February after I suffered under its yoke since Christmas and through January. It could have be... Read more

Friday, March 22, 2013      0 comments
