Careful! You might be eaten by a grue!

It’s barely into my Monday and it’s already been a long day. Running late, interview at 9, meeting at 10 and another at 11. Fun! Last night we had a power outage, which was kinda cool in a way, but...

City moments

Last night I made the stupid mistake of not factoring in HWB (hailing while black) time when trying to get a cab from Halo to Firefly for dinner. All told about 9 cabs (with no fares inside and with their...

I don’t wanna grow up, I’m a PermaPuppy…

Michael Crichton’s got a new book out, NEXT and there’s a “viral” website out to go with it, NEXTgencode. Check out PermaPuppy under ads (or here). Most impressive is that the reference to his book is kinda buried under the...

There’s a joke here…

Seen on the back of a welding company truck on my way to work yesterday and today. I’m thinking maybe something about the RNC, Karl Rove and misheard stereotypical Asian mispronunciation: “They said they were guaranteed to steal every election!”...

It’s new to me!

Perhaps everyone could just use a little laugh, I know I could. The holidays tend to be a stressful enough time and some of us go through what seem like consistent periods of stress, I know I do. This joke...

Sweet! (potato)

I’ve learned my lesson, the old ways are often better. Since my Saturday was so full of exciting plans (I needed to go out for light bulbs) I decided I’d continue the T’giving theme and make a sweet potato pie....

A day late on the Thanks, G.

I’m rather stuffed and docile at the moment, but suffice to say tonight’s dinner was a rousing success. I’ll just finish off this wine and try to walk in about an hour or so. Turkey with forty cloves of garlic,...

and the skeletons of Quinto call me home…

Ok it’s dead here in the office today, really really really dead. There’s just three of the team in and we’ve been rarely troubled with any actual work. It’s good to have a day to catch up and/or slack off,...

Well, it’s no 2005…

The last time I was alone for Thanksgiving, I was living on my own in Alexandria. I had very little money, nearly no vacation time from work and catsitting duties down the road. I made cookies that morning, watched a...

The trouble with normal is it only gets worse

As I feel that I have pretty much done everything that I possibly can wrong today, combined with the overwhelming sensation that I’ve gotten caught in a freezing cold downpour, I think I’ll just go home now and either run...

Not yer usual Monday

My Monday morning is defined by the meetings that I usually have til lunchtime. This morning they were all canceled, what’s an office drone to do?! Thankfully the group trip out to Starbucks killed way more time than it should...

Screw the PS3, I want a Wii

Wii, you might ask? Oh, no reason, just this (QT .mov). I’ve already played Marvel Ultimate Alliance a bit on the PC with a gamepad (which I’m finally getting used to) and it’s a lot of fun, but seriously to...

morning headlines

Because I’m tired and haven’t had my coffee yet, I’ll just regurgitate what I’ve read so far. I had absolutely no idea that the PS3 goes on sale this Friday. I say sale because it seems that the price can...

Which sounds more profound: a 180 or full circle?

A LOT has changed for me since I first got this job, dates, living arrangements, friends, etc. When I first interviewed for this job, I thought I did so poorly that I left here ready to be sick. Thankfully I...
