Heavy cloud of sleep.

Peretz is restless.

Friday, November 27, 2009

Genuinely delightful Thanksgiving feast at the H & O followed by viewing of amusingly terrible G.I. Joe movie at the Brock/Stromsen household. Came home & fell asleep on the couch.

Dreary drive to work through the slate gray drippiness, would like to go home soon & I will. Pleasure universe.

Kugel's in the oven.

Had the kid here overnight, nice to see him again so soon.

Just had to take parchment paper with bits of cake affixed away from dogs.

Need to remember to bring copy of Norstrillia to dinner party for Chris.

Depressingly eager for my meager one day off. Dull city calling Funkytown, come in, Funkytown.

Burning old photos to dvd.

Eager/meager, Becky Beaver.

I'm one drowsy daisy, sleep was pretty seriously disrupted by agitated dogs climbing in and out of my blanket. They hate it when it warms up overnight while raining.

At some point need to get stuff for Thanksgiving kugel.

Going to meet up with T. in town for burritos in a bit.

Where's the excitement?

Monday, November 23, 2009

One long, stuffy headed weekend, T & the kid both in town, meals, shows (great to see Gerty Farish again), IT tasks at work & elsewhere, comped meals & cash in hand for IT tasks, might be I made a profit off the weekend, odd.

Back at work with stuffy head, free cider in the break room.

L. got back with the kid,we had some frozen pizza then went to a nice show at the record store down the way. Very pleasant.

Friday, November 20, 2009

Making another pan of butter mochi to share with friends at show this evening,the whole house smells like coconut.

Really should walk Peretz. He says, 'Yes, you really should.'
Been a big week for extreme discomfort. In addition to all round sickness, twisted my ankle yesterday. Somehow got a lot done despite being mostly bedridden.

L.'s about to leave to fetch the kid, has turned into a pretty day for a drive, anyway.

Cough, cough, cough, limp, limp, limp.

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Another day home sick, did a surprisingly large amount of work regardless.

Cough, cough, cough. Peretz is bored with it. Bored.


Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Sick, sick, sick. Sinus headache turned into something a lot worse while at work yesterday, came home early, fell asleep.

Mostly sleeping, coughing, sneezing since then. Was woken about an hour ago by extremely disgruntled Peretz. Just took a very hot shower, will soon move on to other challenges.

Monday, November 16, 2009

Got that pizza I wanted, also some frozen ones for later.

Went to see some music, show ran a little slow, but still nice.

Came home through the foggy night, watched The Amazing Adventure, am now watching Miller's Crossing.

Sinuses are going haywire.

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Want some decent pizza, damn it.

Maybe tomorrow.
Crafts, Nice Korean, sake, long wait through pretty lousy derivative New York bands for pretty darn good, if derivative, Chinese one.

Learned a bit about Hampshire not paying bands shenanigans, ugh, jerky place.

Sleepy drive home down slick roads, listening to the tape Zack gave me.

Friday, November 13, 2009

Made pecan pie, brought L. snacks at work, went to protest, our mayor lacks a soul. Really astonishing sunset.

Came back, walked the dogs, had some pie, nom nom nom.

L. just left for Northampton where we will rendezvous a bit later. Dogs are milling about restlessly.
Friday off is off to a nice start, talked to my mom about whales in Maui, finances, etc., walked dogs, washed some pots and pans.

Am going to spend some time relaxing now, uploading photos, reading about Hawaiian cuisine. May make a pie later, may not.

Later, there's a prolibrary protest & a craft fair & Chinese postpunk bands.

Old lefties, humorless, overinvested in hagiography, no technique. Would be nice to think we owe them something, but, honestly, they're no Chuck Berrys. Let them sit by their quiet pond.

Crappy Pappy, Wiccan Chicken, Arclight Sphincters, whatever, it was pretty fun. Do the skip/slip.

Before all that, multicourse beer tasting dinner, pale ale with grapefruity hops FTW.

Happy Armistice, everybody.

11:11, eve of 11/11. Should be sleeping.

Long slog of work, band practice, leftovers, laundry.

Too sleepy to type. Nighty night.

Monday, November 09, 2009

Seriously, sinus headache all day, ridiculous.

After work, party for the Franklin County CDC (always makes "Harper Valley PTA" tune pop into my head, also have to correct myself for thinking it's the Center for Disease Control each time I drive past).


Sick of this headache.

Sunday, November 08, 2009

Another sinus headache, feeling a bit sad about the many, many things that worry and upset me that I can do nothing about.

On the plus side, made pretty tasty pasta supper.

Been sleeping a lot the past few days, having some very unpleasant dreams. The sleep is worth it.
At work dealing with another vendor fuckup. Maybe some time off later in the week, bleh.

Could use a nap.

Yesterday, worked for a while, went to NH for lower vice taxes, went to Brattleboro to find an ottoman, got lost after when a bridge I was expecting to cross was closed, ended up on a dirt road, stopped to let 3 lovely deer cross the way. Finally got home, out to dinner & a show, came home, fell asleep on the couch watching bad scifi television.

Today, slept on the couch for a long while, took a long walk with L. & the dogs to a mead sampling (L. prefers the cassis, Peretz the Winter Warmer), got cookbooks in the mail, started reading Hawaiian one, decided to make shoyu chicken & after a little out & about did so.

Also, we've been watching Dexter.

Friday, November 06, 2009

Came home; made a quick dinner; went out into the dark, rainy night to see music.

On the way home, a tiny mouse ran quickly across the highway in front of my car, hope it made it someplace warm & safe.

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

Making this for laughs. Game's on, fire's burning, fed the pups.

Peretz just had a bit of a hard time clambering atop the blankets piled on the couch.

Enchiladas were aces.
Pizza for dinner, pizza for lunch, la, la, la, la, la.

Later, enchiladas & baseball.

Soda pop, soda pop, oh, soda, soda, soda. Soda pop!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

Feeling a bit foggy, scratchy throat.

Show last night was a relaxing good time, went to Pint karaoke after, very much enjoyed L.'s renditions of 'Richard Cory' & 'Josie', didn't partake myself, scratchy throat.

Planned to take this AM off work as working late imaging a machine, etc. Didn't really work out, got sucked into troubleshooting on web server, etc.

Etc, etc.

Sunday, November 01, 2009

Party last night was something of a gas, put on my best creepy, L. her best Ewok. Our set was a bit rushed, how it goes.

Dark by five, blech.
