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. ...

Day (sort of) off

A funny thing happened today … all the computer systems at work are being replaced, and it suddenly became apparent that no one was getting anything done there today. So no one went there. And once I checked at home, it was clear that no email from work was available, so little could be done ...

One of those afternoons

Had a small farewell thing at work today (third one in three months I’ve been there, which probably says something). Went to a local pub for lunch and a few drinks. Which naturally lasted nearly three hours … It’s not like we were staggeringly drunk or anything, but we had a few, and when you ...
