2013.01.18: Friday Fright-night
1. "Pest control" came by this afternoon and sprayed a bit in the kitchen and bathroom. Just a squirt here and there.
2. Ms. S. opted for a 'Quorn' burger tonight and found it rather meaty. I had a bite and concur. An interes... Read more
2013.01.17: "Thanks for the treatment, Shaggy."
Wednesday redux, Thursday weather, etc.
It snowed today!
I have the evidence ... the proof ... somewhere. On my phone. Photos and videos. Now as the sun goes down sunlight reflects and glistens off other buildings and shimmers ... Read more
2013.01.16: "Just not yours and not mine."
I made the mistake last week at Belle Foods of buying 'quick' barley rather than the variety of pearl barley that takes the better part of an hour to cook. The latter is better for making something risotto-esque. The former is still tast... Read more
2013.01.15: "You turned your phone off? Why do you even bother carrying it?"
So asked Scully of Mulder in "Grotesque" (season 3 ... gargoyles!) ... I've been that way, the one to turn off or not carry my phone. Today Ms. S. and I will be offline for a nice, extended period of time ... but that will probably be a matter o... Read more
2013.01.14: "Sure. Fine. Whatever."
Yesterday's television and today's movie, some food from two days, and a little shopping.
Last evening we got to the next episode of 'Dollhouse,' though we had thought of holding off on our television rotation; both of us were in to... Read more
2013.01.13: Odds and Ends
Miscellany ... for tidying up my mind and life. Some computer stuff, some philosophy and quotes, some reading -- old and new --, and all that jazz, though little of the latter.
From earlier in the week:
I set up VirtualHosts as... Read more
2013.01.12: "How do I know you're not a cockroach?"
A lazy-ish Saturday, our pop culture evening, potential future shopping, etc.
We stayed up late Friday evening after finishing "Revelations" ('The X-Files,' featuring Kenneth Welsh, whom many also know from 'Twin Peaks' (Windom Earl... Read more
2013.01.11: "Apology has become policy."
Scully utters that quote -- also replacing the usual "The Truth Is Out There" in the opening sequence -- at the end of the episode ("731") as an indictment. It replaces a policy position from an earlier season: "Deny everything." And superficial... Read more
2013.01.10: Thursday Date Night
Working out, a visit from the old man, a trip to town, a walk, dinner, and a return home for tea and Top Chef.
Calisthentics came in the morning, but my daily workout videos will wait until Ms. S. goes to work this evening. My back ... Read more
2013.01.09: "Ma-Ma is not the law... I am the law."
Tuesday TV and Movie, a midweek and midday meal, and more.
Lunch today with Ms.S.'s father, who had a book for her.
At the end of the meal, when we returned him to work, he handed us a bag of goodies, but the one thing missing ... Read more
2013.01.08: If Gandalf came knocking on your door ...
Active, passive, and interactive for the day? We'll see.
After I prepared two eggs -- sunny side up -- for breakfast and as the steel-cut oats simmer, I heard a plop-plop, wandered to the bathroom, and noticed the ceiling leaking.
... Read more
2013.01.07: Cat on my lap ... it's Hobbit-forming
Habits and Hobbits, cats and chores.
I remember reading somewhere that to make a habit you needed to repeat that 'thing' quite consciously for about three weeks before it would start to turn into an unconscious habit.
About six... Read more
2013.01.06: Not having an epiphany here!
A good deal of writing, a good deal of software wankery, a little cooking, and broken glass!
Ms. S. arrived at the scheduled time this morning; she's at work again as we speak, doing her once-a-month Sunday shift, but will be back i... Read more
2013.01.05: "Speaking of sci-fi, can we play with the sleepies?"
A low-key sort of Saturday, with exercise (broken up), some TV, some dinner, a movie (dinner and a movie? call it a date!), and all that jazz.
Lots of tea.
Ms. S. and I love our tea, and for Christmas we each got each other tea... Read more
Another dreary day outside, but inside it's casual and homey. Doing, learning, and creating ... at least one of three, or all of them rolled into one, rather than well-divided.
I stayed up past midnight to reinstall OS X 10.4 ("Tiger") on t... Read more
