Mixed grill

Monday, February 28th, 2005

Of course, the problem with a catching-up-on-sleep weekend comes on Monday morning at, say 3:30, when your body pops awake and says, “That was really great. Whadaya wanna do now?” Thinking back, my longest stint upright this weekend was about five hours Saturday night. Shower, meeting, dinner with the gang, reading, then back to bed. […]

Hot journaler-on-journaler action (part drei)

Friday, February 25th, 2005

This is one of the pics that Von sent. She’s using another in her entry about our day and there’s a third that should only ever be used for blackmail purposes. Responding: Ha! I forgot about pulling a Bishonenworks calendar off the wall saying, “You gotta see the boys.” And no, they’re not naked on […]

On Sunday, Von came to visit. As she requested, we had snow. Not much by our standards, but it was snow. Naturally, we had clouds too. Thinnish clouds, where you could almost convince yourself that the roundish brighter region in the sky was the sun. You’d have to be an optimist though. Anyway, Vonnie is […]

Balancing act

Monday, February 21st, 2005

There’s this really cool place I keep seeing as my life lurches and jolts from one extreme to the other. It’s called balance. Looks really nice. I just have to figure out how to get off there. Maybe if I pull this emergency stop cord… The most difficult challenge I face now that I’m feeling […]

As if there was any doubt…

Overall, you scored as follows: 2% scored higher (more nerdy), and 98% scored lower (less nerdy). All hail the monstrous nerd. You are by far the SUPREME NERD GOD Ahem. While on the topic of stupid web stuff, What’s your battle cry? Prowling over the terrain, swinging a bladed baseball bat, cometh Bruce! And he […]

Busy weekend ahead

Something that always leaves me shaking my head is how much the Presbyterians seem to like me. The Presbytery of Genesee Valley is my oldest, steadiest and most-loyal client. Last year, I started doing work for the neighboring Presbytery of Geneva. Anyway, every year I do 20 minutes or so at the new minister orientation. […]

Riding to work on Saturday I was startled to see the University Ave fence and gates to the George Eastman House festooned in crime scene tape. At first I thought perhaps thieves had made off with George’s recently rediscovered sideboard, but then, looking more closely, the tape said “Crime Scene — Law & Order”. Oh. […]

I’m all giddy over Von visiting R-Town on the weekend of the 18th. She’s one of the few journalers I’ve read consistently since I started my own. Her site requires a password, which I’m sure she’d be happy to send you. We’ve both had our issues and ups and downs over the years and are […]

Friday shorts

Friday, February 4th, 2005

After having royally screwed up my sleep patterns with The Experiment, it’s taking a while to get back to normal. I’m hoping that by Monday things will be all sorted. Got an official attaboy from a patron at the library today. He stopped me three times as I was passing by to confirm that Clippy […]

The experiment

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2005

Messing with the medication dosage and timing this weekend didn’t go off like I’d hoped. The plan was to leverage the sleepiness the Cymbalta gave me during the day, and try to do without the the meds I’d been taking at bedtime. Friday night I took only the 60mg of Cymbalta. I was awake until […]
