The past two years have been pretty eventful, this last year especially so in the Life Change department. My posts got circumvented by insane work schedules and I once again fell out of the updating habit. Now that I’m footloose and fancy freelancer, we can see about getting back into the swing of things. A…

Day 2 was a wonderful rest day. We (okay, I) slept late, and after breakfast went down to the Conifer Safeway to stock up on camping foodies. Brian had regaled me with descriptions of this store after his visit last July, but I still wasn’t quite ready for the reality. It was the most awesome…

We have returned from our epic trip to Yellowstone and other parts unknown (to me). Our stuff is unpacked, the house is clean, and the pantry is restocked. Time to settle in for another couple of days before going to work. Was I sad to come back? Not really. I was sad to leave, especially…

Well, not yet, at least. Just nearly dead. To blaaaaaave… Anyway, work is still insane, but a slightly lighter shade of it, so I’m leaving a quick note while dinner is in the oven. Here are some observations for today: Fleetwood Mac still rocks. Awesome show in Tulsa Sunday night, and I thank them for…

Read More Not Dead!

I’ve not posted for a week, and probably will be scarce for two more, at least. As I mentioned in a previous post, the pace at work has hit Warp 9.5. When things slow down enough for me to think straight, I’ll be back to posting random observations and botched movie quotes. Whee!~H

Woo hoo! (By the way, I find it funny that spell check underlines hoo, but not woo.) On the way home today, I saw one of those gas pipeline way stations enclosed in a chain-link fence. My first thought was, “ooh, random encounter!” Why? Because I played Fallout3 so much, and several zones in Fallout3…

I’m watching/listening to a hockey game tonight, so a bit distracted. However, I’ve got pics for you from my ever-exciting workplace! Specifically, pics of something that helps keep me sane. Pre-squeeze… Post-squeeze… How awesome is this toy? Smooshing it when I’m thinking (or fuming) has helped lots, so a heartfelt thank you to the lovely…

Brain no worky. I think I used up all my writey mojo on proposal stuff today. That’s okay, though; the warm fuzzy acquired from actually making progress is worth it. I don’t want to be lame and leave a super-short post for tonight, but seriously, nothing is coming to mind in the way of topics.…

Well, short, anyway. It’s late and I’m too tired to go extra-verbose like I did last night, as fun as that was. Almost as fun as shooting pixelated zombies! That hobby helps keep me sane, but I’ll not have much time for it in the next few months. Work is going to make up for…

As I went to sleep last night, the thought occurred to me that some folks could have taken my third zombie escape tactic the wrong way, because some people are touchy like that. My intention was not to bash all people who have kids. Far from it. People like my friend Renee, who actually loves…
