Dial it up a notch?

February 26, 2010

In the past couple of weeks, at least two people have told me directly that they’re “living vicariously through” me – specifically with respect to the photos posted on facebook of my winter peakbagging extravaganza.  I can’t tell you how cool that is; how good that makes me feel. Well, I’m considering dialing that vicarious […]

Stress Happens

February 24, 2010

Kicking some iz-ass this week, dear reader. I think. I feel good right now because I just turned around a 400-word piece of copy in about an hour.  And it’s not too bad.  I’m getting faster, which is good.  Maybe not so, because I’m paid by the hour, but I think I’ll just focus on […]

Two posts for the price of one tonight.  That last post was written on Sunday night, but I guess I hit “Save Draft” and then never clicked “Publish”.  So yeah, double your pleasure, double your fun:  two QJ posts for the price of one. …a-aaand I’m sorely tempted to leave it at that. I need […]

Back to “Normal”

February 23, 2010

Blogging again at 1AM when I should be going to bed.  At least my eyes are scratchy – there have been a couple of nights this past week in which I had trouble falling asleep. Due to the scratched cornea thing, I haven’t been at work for a week.  I’m going to have a shit-ton […]

Today’s Hike: Windham High Peak 2-20-2010

February 20, 2010

The opthamologist said that my eye is healing well.  I have a final appointment with him next Friday.  My vision is still a bit blurry, though today I finished the novel I started on Wednesday.  Driving is ok, but not great – I’m still a bit apprehensive.  I think the hardest part of this hike […]

Feelin’ Mellow

February 19, 2010

Not much new to report, dear reader.  It feels kind of strange to be out of the habit of blogging.  I mean, I’m sure I still have something to say, but I’m not exactly sure what. I feel pretty good right now.  Composed and relatively serene.  When we had the snow day last Wednesday, one […]

Make Lemonade

February 18, 2010

Yes, I know it’s been nearly a week since my last post, but I have a good excuse: I’ve only had the use of my left eye since Saturday, and until yesterday, my right eye was in quite a lot of pain. (Skip to around 1:23, please.) Saturday’s hike was Doubletop and Graham mountains – […]

I Have a Left-Handed Johnson

February 11, 2010

I need a new bass.  I just spent about a hundred bucks getting the one I have tuned up a few months ago.  I think I bought the damned thing (close to 10 years ago) for $120 (amp included).  It’s a total piece of crap, but it’s a Johnson, strung lefty.  I’ve always enjoyed looking […]

#SmootheMoose & Fruitcakes

February 10, 2010

My writing this evening has already been completed:  I spent myself in a long-ish email to Didi.  Sorry, dear reader, there isn’t much left for you.  “Tomorrow, tomorrow,” as Annie sez. In the meantime, I invite you to check out the recent Free Music Monday Post over at Mashable:  my buddies over at Smoothe Moose […]

An FJ Cruiser and a Little Old Lady

February 7, 2010

I’ve been feeling a bit strange all weekend, dear reader.  And I’m not exactly sure from what it stems.  But more on that later.  Maybe. I’ve some interesting things I’d like to relate first: I climbed Big Indian and Fir mountains this Saturday.  Got to the trailhead around 11, which is WAY late for me, […]
