Douglas Adams, before he died, wrote a book called the The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, which is fortunate, because it would have been quite the trick had he waited to try to write it after he died. In it, an alien computer called Deep Thou... Read more
Tonight's entertainment was predicated by a sponsored ad on Facebook. Most of the time, I ignore the sponsored ads, save to wonder why FB decided to show me this or that particular ad. But this time, it was spot on, as the ad was for a local hig... Read more
Peeking back at the entry from Sunday, seems like I was at a low point (hence the title, a take off on the beautifully sad Porcupine Tree song, Feel So Low https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=tvUBLp2Uy8o
Feeling better, to... Read more
Had a day of celebrations today, what with Mother's Day coinciding with my parents' 45th anniversary. Add to that my nephew's birthday being tomorrow, and it was a fun day. Played a little swamp soccer with the young man, which would ordinarily ... Read more
It was an easy drive down to Columbus today. Decided against stopping to see something I'd also skipped when I was down here last month, due to it being cold then. Scoping out tomorrow's weather (possibly rain), maybe I should have hit it. But, ... Read more
Frankly, given my night owl tendencies, I've posted deader into the night before, but I'm putting up a pretense at a daily blog entry. Missed out last Saturday, but otherwise have been doing ok for the past week.

Didn't do much i... Read more
The “Oh never mind” portion of the previous entry's title turned out to be prescient, as an hour after I posted it, I got a message from the person organizing our team saying that it had been cancelled for lack of team signing up. There was anot... Read more
Yeah, I'm a Star Wars fan, but not of the kind to know all the characters that might have fallen into and been devoured in the Sarlaac pit. I suspect that lack of knowledge might have come in handy at the Star Wars trivia event I'm supposed to g... Read more
Told Alexa to play an album by Queensryche, and it chose Empire, which begins with the blog titular cut.
Now titular is a word that I may or may not have chosen on my own, what ... Read more
So I get to give myself a med injection intramuscularly every couple of weeks, follow on from the surgery I had last summer. I shoot myself in the right quad usually, and usually, there's nothing more than a drop or two of bloody liquid that com... Read more
Was perusing old blog posts of mine earlier today. Back in late 2012, early 2013, I was pretty amusing! Kinda want to try and recapture that voice that I was using back then, if only in service of using this space as an outlet what whatever rand... Read more
Seriously, who dumps someone via text message? (25% of breaker uppers, apparently)
Not a plea for pity, no need for sympathy, it was something that was going to happen sooner or later (says the pessimist in me), and it was a fun few months.... Read more
