Eight

I remembered our eight anniversary was coming. Then yesterday, eight days later, I remembered again, surprised I had let it pass without recalling or noting it on that day. Made me think. I also thought it was the first time … Continue reading

Vacation

I was just thinking that I could post up a storm this week, since I am on vacation. The last post I started writing met the all too common fate of staying a draft, never finished or published, on fire … Continue reading

Thou Art Martian?

It’s within the realm of the possible, and someday perhaps we’ll find out. I find that sort of thing intensely exciting.

Missed My Blogiversary

But at least it’s close to February 25, a fitting time to start again, going back to move ahead. I bought this domain a year ago, when I came up with the domain name, blog/business name, and inkling of an … Continue reading

This seems right…

You Are a Rock Star Even if you can’t play a single instrument, you’re a total rebel and creative type. You couldn’t imagine yourself with a corporate job, and you couldn’t imagine having a boss. You are expressive, original, and … Continue reading

Both, Really

You Are a Doer You are primarily concerned with what is actual. You tend to be a practical person. You love to stay busy, and you are always immersed in projects. You are in touch with your senses, and you … Continue reading

FYI

There is an anonymous place where I am writing more fully what’s happening and what I think and feel, both current and in depth as a therapeutic exercise.  Don’t want everyone to know where it is and would like to … Continue reading

Augh

I forgot the stripping problem meant more than just links would be trashed. It also means nothing has an apostrophe or a quotation mark as composed in an offline editor that talks to xmlprc and then is, apparently, affected by … Continue reading

Yearly Goals

I started to tweet this and then didn’t. It bears remembering, though. Here is what I wrote, edited only slightly as there’s not a 140 character limit here: #yearlygoals 1 – Recall/identify my dreams or at least meaningful goals, 2 … Continue reading

Expectations

My subconscious took an editorial I read recently that invoked the concept of the fox and the hedgehog and leapt from there. The idea is, apparently, that the hedgehog knows one big thing, while the presumably clever fox knows many … Continue reading

James Armistead

The shocking thing is I’d never heard of him. Shouldn’t every kid learn about someone that impressive and important in history in school? Oh wait, I went to public schools…

Theme Change

I’ve tentatively changed themes, which is both to look better and to have widgets enabled for easier management of the sidebar. I still have to put back Site Meter and organize things, but so far so good.

RIP Bo Diddley

Guitarist Bo Diddley dead at 79. I think he was right about the financial rewards passing him by, but it’s ever so with pioneers. For a time, he wasn’t even as famous as he should have been. I’d only barely … Continue reading

Plunging Right Along

Solidly 259 this morning. That’s 49 off peak and 39 this year. I might have been in the 250-something range at some point when I first met Deb, but for the most part I’ve been above that for several years. … Continue reading

It’s Nanny.gov’s Fault

The whole van thing could be blamed on the government. We didn’t need an extra “seat” after all, but an extra seat that would hold a car seat. When I was a kid, three would sit in the back seat … Continue reading

Success

That was easy, adding Twitter Tools plugin to show tweets as posts. Now I’ll have to add some original posts here too. They are intended to be brief, little more than off the cuff remarks or links that don’t call … Continue reading

Hey, that’s pretty cool. Title…

Hey, that’s pretty cool. Titles are weird b/c they are truncations of the tweets, but it is what it is. Which always reminds me of A is A.
