In which I compose holiday haiku for 2020.
In which mangers are blocks and bits of glass.
In which I feel obliged to look back on the year 2009.
I had a good day today. I talked to family back home and then had a very nice dinner with Ann and David. Russell and I met their new mut Lexi for the first time. Initially, she was very territorial and hard to approach but a few treats and a walk around the property later […]
You may have read somewhere (on Twitter or maybe I blogged about it?) that Howl, my beloved iPod, died. Tim lent me his for the time being and, knowing my birthday was coming up, suggested that I opt for a Nano or an iPod Touch. I was taken with the Touch: wifi web browsability, mail […]
I haven’t formed any New Year’s resolutions because I think it is stupid to wait an entire year to make goals for oneself, when one is perfectly capable mustering up a modicum of resolve on any given day of the year.

Russell just called to report that the package, a gift for someone, is no where to be found. In retrospect, I suppose […]
For this Friday’s Musical Interlude, I thought I’d go with something seasonal. I’ve always liked Deck the Halls. This arrangement is pretty bad ass (and played by a truly bad ass horn line). Happy Solstice, Christmas, Festivus, etc., etc. Carolina Crown, July 2008(Yes, I’ve been waiting for months to post this.)
Happy Hallows I miss carving pumpkins with the fam but they find ways to make me smile. Rocky Horror Show closed last night. My evenings are mine once again! It was a really fun show and I met some great people but, as always happens right after a show, I’m feeling extremely anti-social. Apologies in […]
