It has been pointed out to me that some readers fell asleep while reading the previous post. *ahem* Get some freakin’ coffee, people! I can’t be consistently witty and entertaining every minute of every day! It takes work. Hard work. Honestly, you have no idea what it’s like to live in this head. Anyway, I […]

Apple Takes up Podcasting

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

Well, this should be interesting: Apple has taken up podcasting. Translation: There are scads of websites out there that produce audio files (mp3s and the like) in the same manner that we bloggers produce text entries. You can either visit their sites periodically and download the files manually to listen to them, or you can […]

Nose to the Grindstone

Wednesday, June 29th, 2005

Where does the phrase “nose to the grindstone” come from, anyway? Was there ever actually a profession where in order to really get work done, you had to give yourself massive nasal abrasions? That doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. Today I guess it is more like “nose to the hard drive platter”. […]

Home Cookin’

Monday, June 27th, 2005

After the ineffable dreariness caused by the Skelaxin, I finally had a lucid and wonderful day yesterday. I spent it at my mom’s house on the river in the company of my brother, my sister, and their respective families. We swam, wrangled children, avoided talking about politics, wrangled children, and generally had a wonderful time. […]

Enough with the skelaxin

Saturday, June 25th, 2005

Okay, I’ve been on the muscle relaxants for three days now and I really, really don’t like them. Enough of this. I’m going to stick with the anti-inflammatory meds and start physical therapy. But I can’t take this zombie-like state of being anymore. It’s just not any fun. I tried finishing some double-stitching on the […]

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2005

My neck’s been getting progressively stiffer over the past couple of months, and this morning it was bad enough that I didn’t go in to work and got an appointment with my doc for this afternoon. I predict muscle relaxants are in my future, and possibly a chiropractor. Someday I’d like to talk to the […]

Ill-advised Adventure

Sunday, June 19th, 2005

“Am I ‘hurting’ right now?” I kept rolling that thought around in my head yesterday around 4:30 in the afternoon. I was on FM 2696 on the homeward leg of a 40-mile out-and-back loop. My original plan for the day had been to get up at 6:00, drive to Boerne Town Lake and do the […]

That doesn’t look right . . .

Saturday, June 18th, 2005

Sometimes the only redeeming feature of a mistake is that you know exactly how it happened. I present exhibit A in my current effort to convince myself that I can live with ripping out 13 rows of the Henna shawl: So, what happened here? Why does that yarn over border of the center panel start […]

Funny, I don’t feel anxious

Friday, June 17th, 2005

So I had this dream . . . I’m sitting at one end of a playing field working on the Henna shawl. To my right is a warehouse-style building, and to the left is a road the winds back into the hills in the distance. A game is going on on the field, but I […]
