Last night, instead of going to party, fell asleep. Woke up about half an hour ago. Good times.

It's a rainy Halloween, may go for rainy Halloween dim sum.

Trying to work out tactics for this evening's performance. Had too much to dream last night.

Friday, October 30, 2009

Have spent most of today wanting to be asleep. Am going to go out to a party in a little while.

Also, Toste's here, hurrah. We've been eating pie.

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Week has been way too much, now resting, had some pie, watched some baseball.

Lots of performances lined up, trying to get an art project started, weird.

Monday, October 26, 2009

Busy weekend. L. won a costume contest as a frenetic Mexican wrestler, went to a pumpkin carving party, band practice, did more Halloween errands, went to a show, blah, blah, blah.

Woke coughing and sneezing violently, must be another workweek.

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Halloween errands, etc.

Would really enjoy some good pizza, am not going to get it.

Raining hard.

Last night, went for ride on haunted mini train.

Friday, October 23, 2009

Sorting through odds and ends of workweek, ready for it to be over & it will be, quite shortly.

L. has a pork pie.

Pie, pie, pie. Still some 3 berry waiting at home.

Need to figure out a Halloween costume.

Feeling obstructed. Partially sinus trouble.

Gave my parents directions to Makapu'u beach by phone. Not as nice as being there, still nice.

Could use a snack.
Been working in the Greenfield office mornings this week. They've been running a bunch of biomass boosting articles, makes me feel sickish that I am in any way assisting them.

Folks got to Hawaii AOK, hopefully they're having fun.

Spending a lot of time feeling very sleepy, looking forward to weekend.

Way too many upcoming shows I want to go to, we'll see.

Unpleasant afternoon at work, most of the time spent repairing a workstation (shudder), also an increasingly bad what I hope is an allergic reaction. Just rinsed off, hopefully, it'll go away, had enough of sick.

Parents are off to Hawaii, lucky so and sos.
Sneezing like crazy this morning, still have a cough, but it no longer hurts.

Plugging away at administrivia at the Greenfield office.

Could use a bagel.

Earlier, Peretz regaled us with systematic confusion of all classic sitcoms with The Jetsons, charming dog.

For some reason, assigned myself a dull, time-consuming and thankless task at work.

Came home, made sausages and spaetzel with gruyere.

Sunday, October 18, 2009

Home before midnight, doesn't sound like much, but it is.

Amazingly jam-packed almost four day trip, so much so that I've kind of lost track- visits with old friends (including biscuits with gravy and a demonstration of the three sectional staff), Monticello, Richard Thompson (enjoyed him outlandishly more than I expected, probably the result of pretending he didn't exist for the past 12-15 years), Bull Run, fancy pie, visionary art, Japanese groceries, etc., etc.

Stayed last night at a Quality Inn. I suppose, in all fairness, they didn't specify which quality. It certainly had one.

Brr, it's cold in here.

Forgot to mention that we are staying in a hip, modern hotel. Just went out to buy some bourbon. On my way out, hip mom with a Betty Page do entered with wheeled carry on followed by her small duplicate who said, "This is amazing!" Shared my elevator ride back up with a guy dressed almost exactly like me, blue hoodie, brown work pants, he prefers Adidas.
Feet hurt.

Last night, after nice Ethiopian around the corner, walked down to Pennsylvania Ave trying to find caipirinhas (place was closed), did reconnoitering of White House.

This AM, walked back to White House in light rain. Took entertaining tour with security theater preshow. Taxi back to hotel in now heavier rain.

Brief rest.

Burger next block up (quite good), then walked to Metro station, train to postal museum, toured postal museum, train to Smithsonian, walked to Lincoln Memorial in still more rain, taxi to caipirinha place, caipirinhas, train to Portrait Gallery, a long hard look at the Portrait Gallery, short walk to nice Chinese, train back toward hotel, missed cross street coming back, ended up walking longer than we needed to in the ever present rain.

Feet hurt. More tourism tomorrow.

Still not feeling so hot. Had a pretty productive day despite that, also looking forward to going to the first show I've set up in a very long time.

Dogs are pretty hyper, one jumps off the bed, the other jumps up. Both have bones.

Monday, October 12, 2009

Wow, busy weekend.

Interesting video fest in town Saturday night, caught the tail end of the Ashfield Fall Festival yesterday, got some amusing free stuff from the tag sale as it wound down.

After all that, came home, feeling poorly & fell asleep. Got up after several hours & watched Monster Camp, a documentary about LARPers.

Saturday, October 10, 2009

Back at my favorite Saturday afternoon activity, patching servers. Got started early, hoping I'll get done early, festivities galore await to the north.

Also, car is all fixed, yip, yip.

Last night, made a stew. Perfect stew weather.

Thursday, October 08, 2009

Dropped car off at mechanic, got home early, yip, yip.

More of this:

Less of that.

Wednesday, October 07, 2009

Constant car issues are getting to me, lying in bed twitching. Latest: broken turn signal switch, ugh.

Stomach hurts.

On the way home from work: giant rainbow over river, thankfully, no fatalities.


Need a beverage.

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

Painful cough persists. Ick.

D.C. plans are coming together.

Reheated Chinese buns on the docket for later.

Sunday, October 04, 2009

So, if you've ever considered making Chinese steamed buns filled with smoked pork shoulder and spicy relish, I strongly suggest following through.

Also made some with a maple butternut filling, also pretty yummy.

Still sickish, but sleep is helping.

Saturday, October 03, 2009

Still feeling yucky.

L.'s making sticky buns.

Going to go see a play about Lincoln & Douglas in Hardwick in a while, hope to pick up some smoked pork after to use in steamed buns.

Buns, buns, buns.

Rainy morning, dogs didn't want to get up.

Friday, October 02, 2009

So, crappy low energy coughy sickness continues. Made it out of the house for some nice Thai. Should probably make some chicken noodle & grilled cheese later.

Just learned that we've been assigned a White House tour, should be fun, haven't been to D.C. in a dog's age.

Peretz is looking at me sideways.

Thursday, October 01, 2009

Home sick. Should go get soup.

Pretty cold today.
