Frustrating markets

We’ve already been turned down officially for the first place we put in an application for housing for. This hasn’t happened before, I don’t think… really. I don’t recall ever putting in a full application and not getting the house. That’s the nature of the market these days, or something, I guess. Still doesn’t tell ...

Where to with writing — and Hold Steady muppets

I’ve basically worked out that there’s something stopping me from writing. I’m so certain that putting the right work in there will do me so much good, but mentally there is just something wrong (no, not mental in that way wise ass…) It’s probably a terribly common thing for most writers, but if I can ...

An opportunity

Is what I see right now to take something approaching a semblance of a good night’s sleep. So I go to bed… now. I don’t consider this a cheat, because I’d rather blog about sleeping well than get into more posts about how crap my health is, which I’m afraid is happening again already. Share ...

Not keeping up

There’s a lot of things I could be writing about here now. The ridiculous spectacle of the Republican convention for one, or the even more ridiculous way the media is reacting to their VP candidate. But it just doesn’t seem worth the time, especially giving them my space, and time. Will came home today, which ...

A decision (or not)

I have decided today that there’s far too many things going on right now. From Will in hospital, to job troubles, to business yes/no-ing, to our imminent need to find somewhere new to live, to everyone’s incessant sickness, it’s just all too much. So one of these is just going to stop. Any of them ...

Personal time clocks

It’s funny how things work at the moment… with Will still in hospital, Sallie still there with him, and me shuffling around between hospital and home, and then going back to work tomorrow, it all makes things right out of whack. I mean, of course Will easily has it worst of everyone, and Sallie isn’t ...

Well at least I didn’t have to go to work

Day off today and tomorrow, which in itself would be good, but this time around came about because Will’s in hospital… which is of course bad. Nothing really unusual really — he’s there to have his bladder area reworked to make things better for him. It’s too complicated to put it all down here, but ...

Cough, cough

Well enough for work today, but apparently not enough to stop me from coughing all day anyway. Achieved a surprising amount while there, though also mulling business plans and researching the like at the same time. Major coughing fits on the way home, but ok when I got there. Alex seems to be getting sick ...

All these things at once

Business moves are coming along quite nicely, which ties into moving house because we have to, which ties into changing everything. And THAT is good. On the lighter side, I’ve finally been able to hear what Warren Ellis sounds like — an audio interview with him here about his novel “Crooked Little Vein”. Quite English ...

The feeling

Is fairly rubbish again… went home from work at 10am today. Coughing heaps again, to the point that work doesn’t want me to stick around. Coughing is not good, but I don’t feel too bad otherwise. Won’t argue with them… at home will do for now. Fine by me… will have to go to the ...
