I was a skeptic at first but these miracles work

It’s good to grab any moment of joy that you can find, even if it’s fleeting, and even it’s while sitting on a packed train on the way to work. I’m sitting there, listening to the new Hold Steady album, “Stay Positive”, reading Charles Stross’ new book “Saturn’s Children”, and the song “Hey Sapphire” comes ...

Well that was interesting…

I just had one of those wonderfully cute phone calls where Sallie put Will on the line and we had a real honest-to-goodness conversation. I’ve talked to Will on the phone before, but that really stands out as being the first real conversation we’ve had. Sweet 🙂 Then I got an email from my boss, ...

Oddly busy

I actually felt like I achieved a lot at work today, just for a change. Got in at a fair time, worked hard, had only a small break but didn’t leave the office (not that I should usually do that), but then left at a great time, got some DVDs and got home by 6.30pm, ...

Mindspace

Years ago, I used to spend a lot of time thinking and planning, and even dreaming. In a lot of ways I knew this was “cart before the horse” stuff, spending more time dreaming and not enough doing, but now I’ve had a different perspective. I think it was and is much healthier to be ...

Back in line

Back to the office today… to the 2+ hours on the train, the cold mornings, the still morning coughs… Always looking for the positive, at least I generally get a seat and can read my book, but then again, the trains were late and I just felt ill by the end of the morning trip ...

Mixed-up day

It appears that I will be going to work tomorrow… even thoug I was heavingly sick at one point today. I mean, really throwing up big time. Of course, work in the office could last a day in favour of coming back here, but we’ll see. I’d like it to be like that more often, ...

And the week goes on…

It’s amazing how many havits you fall out of wen you’re sick… and many of them are even good habits. Oh well. Hopefully I am actually getting better somewhat, the coughing only comes in large fits now, but when they hit it really sucks. It’s still hard to go out and do anything though, especially ...

Woeful week

Well I suppose it wasn’t that bad, but it was woeful enough. Went back to work, still didn’t feel right, as the week went on it only got worse. Eventually gave up and was able to go home at Thursday lunchtime — lost the rest of that day but then worked from home on Friday. ...

Slow day with one highlight

Stayed home sick again today, and actually went to the doctors in the morning. Damn it was cold, even then, and I could feel every degree drop. Apparently I have bronchitis and a throat infection, which explains a lot, especially the coughing. So I get to stay home for at least the next two days, ...

Carousel jumping book choices

Am quite tired right now … it’s that usual thing about getting to the last weeknight and really starting to feel it. It’s quite usual for Thursday nigt but it doesn’t last. Picked up some new books today. Finally got myself one of Scott Westerfeld’s YA books — been curious as to how they read, ...
