health: such a little thing…

I completely misjudged how long it would take me to get into work this morning, so here I sit at quarter to 7 in a nearly completely empty office. Which is actually a really nice thing. People always ask why...

metro: platform or runway?

*taps mic* Is this thing on? Anyone still out there? Yeah, it’s been a while, but between indulging in birthday shenanigans, and sorta realizing that I’m not as able to recover from birthday shenanigans as I once was, I needed...

health: is phrenology covered?

Long story short: I need to get my head examined, and will be doing so this week. I thought the worst thing I had to deal with after my little accident was the big bloody scar healing and fading. Thankfully...

goodbye: Grandma Mattie Lee

My grandmother passed away last night. She was in her mid-90s, so it wasn’t unexpected but that doesn’t make it any easier to accept. I don’t know if others play favorites with grandparents, but she was mine. We weren’t very...
