'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.
It's possible that as a child I had oyster stew or chowder or similar, perhaps just oysters served... Read more
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
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

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
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?
'The X-Files' and 'Millennium'?
In brief: in the latter ("Th... Read more
"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
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
Cooked and cleaned today in anticipation of a pre-Easter dinner with Ms. S.'s parents, and I found it glorious.

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

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
Some reading, little work, some pain.
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
