2013.01.18: Friday Fright-night

Friday, January 18, 2013      0 comments

In short: 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."

Thursday, January 17, 2013      0 comments

Wednesday redux, Thursday weather, etc. I. 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."

Wednesday, January 16, 2013      0 comments

I. 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?"

Tuesday, January 15, 2013      2 comments

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."

Monday, January 14, 2013      0 comments

Yesterday's television and today's movie, some food from two days, and a little shopping. I. 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

Sunday, January 13, 2013      0 comments

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. I. From earlier in the week: I set up VirtualHosts as... Read more

2013.01.12: "How do I know you're not a cockroach?"

Sunday, January 13, 2013      0 comments

A lazy-ish Saturday, our pop culture evening, potential future shopping, etc. I. 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."

Friday, January 11, 2013      0 comments

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

Thursday, January 10, 2013      1 comments

Working out, a visit from the old man, a trip to town, a walk, dinner, and a return home for tea and Top Chef. I. 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."

Wednesday, January 09, 2013      1 comments

Tuesday TV and Movie, a midweek and midday meal, and more. I. 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 ...

Tuesday, January 08, 2013      0 comments

Active, passive, and interactive for the day? We'll see. I. 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

Monday, January 07, 2013      3 comments

Habits and Hobbits, cats and chores. I. 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!

Sunday, January 06, 2013      0 comments

A good deal of writing, a good deal of software wankery, a little cooking, and broken glass! I. 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?"

Sunday, January 06, 2013      0 comments

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. I. Lots of tea. Ms. S. and I love our tea, and for Christmas we each got each other tea... Read more

2013.01.04: T-theflyingspaghettimonster-IF

Friday, January 04, 2013      0 comments

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
