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…Read More Short and Sweet Post
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…Read More Addendum to Monday
It’s Monday again already. How the devil did that happen? We were rocking along, it was the weekend, we had some creepy weather, we did some laundry, we watched the new James Bond film, and then bang! Smacked in the face with a workday. Unlike weekends, weekstarts just never get easier. At least I get…Read More Again?!
Yesterday’s post bugged me as I went to sleep last night, but I couldn’t put my finger on why. The reason hit me this morning, and is only a manifestation of my compulsiveness: I didn’t list all my games. I left out Might and Magic 6 through 8, Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2, Descent3, Freespace…Read More Saturday Addendum
Yesterday’s post was preempted for dinner and hockey, but I’m back tonight. Today’s post is going to center on games other than hockey, though. Specifically, computer games. I’ve been an avid PC gamer (not particularly talented, but avid nonetheless) since I discovered Heroes of Might and Magic (HoMM) II in graduate school. I graduated from…Read More Friday Frustration
Today was a rather weird, slow-motion day at work. Flurries of activity intermingled with intense periods of “omgwhyisitnotfiveoclockyet,” which made some of us rather grumpy. Attempting to cheer myself up, I decided to put some helpful guidance on one of my office doors (I have two). See, some folks like to use my office as…Read More Werk Werk
It’s probably not legal to declare the week a drag before Thursday, but I’m a rebel who will say it for everyone: this week is dragging. Incidentally, so is my brain. None of my List o’Topics appeals to me for banter-fodder this evening. Work was fairly quiet today, just some editing and pondering infused with…Read More It’s Only Tuesday
Just a quick post because I want to stay in the habit of posting, daily if possible, while managing to do all the other evening stuff I want or need to do. Work can and probably will upend this goal, but I’ll do my best! If you follow my fledgling Twitter feed, you saw my…Read More Monday Office Beatings
Found my log-in info! I’ve been feeling thinky lately, which usually leads to feeling writey, so I’ve resurrected this blog. This one always was my favorite. My ginormous audience of one (1) might notice the redesign and wonder what mystical reasons are behind the change. As much as I enjoyed the old layout, it was…Read More Aha!
The classifieds are done, the paper is off to press, and things have settled into the quiet afternoon that usually follows the hectic Wednesday send-off. The roast beef sandwich I had for lunch isn’t helping much with that whole staying awake thing, but the sleepies are actually kind of pleasant today. Even my forum lurking…Read More It’s Wednesday Again
