A while ago, maybe earlier this calendar year, maybe at the tail end of 2018, I really can't remember, I started re-reading the Harry Potter series. Breezed through the first book, started in on the second, and then....nothing....the book disapp... Read more

Apparently, you can't look away

I'd started scribbling a blog post on this stupid phone app, when Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard made a spectacular save, and I went to comment on it on the red wings blog game thread on which I interact with other fans during games. ... Read more
Feels like forever, sometimes
Friday, October 11, 2019      1 comments

You know those friends you have, who it just feels like you've known forever, but then when you stop and talk about it, you've only known them for a couple of years. It doesn't even have to be close friends, people you spend a lot of time with, ... Read more
Easiest (?) interview I've ever done
Thursday, October 10, 2019      1 comments

The one way interview thing was kind of a joke, in the end, though it took a moment to get it set up. The introductory video mentioned how you get a certain amount of time, once you see the question, to think about it, and a preset amount of tri... Read more

A person I've worked with before referred me to a company staffing a short contract in Louisiana in December. So I go to their web site and fill out the basic application, and then after I hit enter, the next page says "All applicants must compl... Read more

Kind of hurt my arm trying to lug a box up the stair to the bedroom where the new dresser was going. It's a few hours later, a time filled with plenty of screwdriver use, and the bicep is no longer whining, so crisis averted. I went around the o... Read more
10/7 split

Went bowling Saturday night. It did not go well. Wrist was hurting, so I backed off using the 13 pound ball I usually throw., opting for a 11 pounder. Only got a 75 in the first game, couldn't pick up any spares. By the middle of the second game... Read more

And not a monster truck rally to be found, alas. I downloaded a new keyboard on my phone, from the Grammarly website, in hopes it would help me avoid typos in texts or in things like this window, but it's not a swiping keyboard, which I've gro... Read more
mixed sports day
Saturday, October 05, 2019      1 comments

Started by waking up at 730 to watch the Spurs-Brighton match, only to see a World Cup winning goalkeeper (Hugo Lloris) make an awful mistake to give the opposition team a goal two minutes later, and, even worse, start howling in pain right afte... Read more

Helping my brother today, loading up a truck with storage items to set up for a Durga Puja celebration (the biggest religious festival of the year for Bengali people). A box started sliding off one of the carts and I managed to catch it... But n... Read more

I was kind of wondering what would happen when the cold weather hit, and outdoor play was no longer feasible, as far as continuing to play with the decent group of players I've spent the summer competing against. Kind of dreaded the idea of goin... Read more
What a deal!

Actually, I'm not being all that sarcastic here. I need to buy a new dresser, looking at spending over a hundred bucks, if only to avoid having the new one fall apart on me the way the old one just did. But, looking around, it seems like an equi... Read more

Bayern Munich went into the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and hung a 7 spot on Spurs. Didn't see that coming. Game started so well, too, two teams both playing attacking football, free flowing chances on both ends. Spurs took an early lead, Bayern e... Read more
Lack of motivation

Back in that mode where I don't really feel like writing these entries, but here I am anyway, because I have A Streak to maintain. You might have noticed the last couple being rather brief in nature. Friday night's was such because I remembered ... Read more
