The Weekend Isn’t Over Yet

August 30, 2009

When I dance, I dance; when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk alone in a beautiful orchard, if my thoughts drift to far-off matters for some part of the time for some other part I lead them back again to the walk, the orchard, to the sweetness of this solitude, to myself. […]

Crystal Ball

August 30, 2009

Balls.  I’ve got two of them, and neither one is crystal.  I have no idea what the future will bring. Which kind of sucks right now, because I want to know if it’s going to rain tomorrow morning in the Catskills.  The plan is to go hiking with my friend Anthony (and possibly our friend […]

#followfriday @DarthPlaya

August 28, 2009

Done!  The #starwars characters list for Twitter is finished.  Look up and to the right under “#sw list”.  I still have to put together the Ted’s Picks page, but I’m not going to do that tonight because I don’t want to miss anyone. Happy Friday, normals; happy #followfriday, twitterers. I said it the other day, […]

Happy Hump Day Linkfest

August 26, 2009

Happy Hump Day.  I kind of can’t believe we’re here already.  This week, like this month, like the summer, like the year, has been flying by.  We’re just about 3/4 of the way through 2009. So check it: I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time messing around behind the scenes on this blog.  Joining […]

Time for a New Theme

August 24, 2009

Ok.  So I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a couple of times already, but I’m looking for a new theme for this blog.  By “theme” I mean a new template – the overall setup and look of the blog.  Besides the fact that it’s time for a change, this theme won’t let me nest the pages, […]

Back to Work

August 24, 2009

Not that I’m not usually blogging at 12:30, but I really should be thinking about getting to bed soon.  Monday morning comes early as it is, but I’m looking at a Monday morning after four days off.  And four days of sleeping WAY late, too. I can’t say that I’m all that psyched to get […]

All Quiet on the Whatever Front

August 23, 2009

I need to find a new theme for this blog pretty darned soon.  I’ve not been able to get the pages to nest – apparently because of all the “custom code” involved in setting up the theme.  I’ve even discussed it with the theme’s designer, and his advice was to “mess with the code until […]

Update & Friday Links

August 21, 2009

Check it:  This post is being written from my brandy-new (somewhat) high speed internet connection.  My very own.  No more pirating my neighbor’s wi-fi.  No more waiting forever for pages to load.  No more losing blog posts because I lost the wi-fi connection.  If this isn’t awesomeness, I’m not sure what is. The internet guy […]

On Meeting People on the Internet

August 20, 2009

I’m kind of a weirdo.  I don’t have too much of a problem admitting that.  It works like this:  like most people, I have idiosyncracies, some of which I’ve cultivated.  At some point, they may have qualified as affectations, but now they’re part of who I am.  Some of the bits of uniqueness that I’ve […]

Non Sequiturs

August 19, 2009

So I walked in to Barnes & Noble tonight and asked the girl at the help desk if she could point me in the direction of the self-help section.  Her reply:  “Wouldn’t that be defeating the purpose?” Joke. I know full well where the self-help section of the B&N is – it’s like the section […]
