Nice weekend visit with the kid, went & saw interesting music, hung out, etc.

L. headed off with him to the cape midafternoon, leaving me to nap. After I woke up, witnessed some pretty egregiously reckless driving while smoking on porch (pickup turned onto our street doing at least 40, slammed into snowbank, nearly flipped over, sped away), chatted with alarmed neighbors, made statement to police.

As it got late, wondered what had become of L. Turns out she came home via New Haven to get me pizza, wonderful lady

Went out last night with L. & the kid in a really excessive rainstorm to see this. Pretty fantastic, made me wish I was producing the version of Sesame Street that would have those guys as guests. Maybe I'll get to it.

Decided to defer inspection of car until Monday, have a bunch of driving plans for weekend that I don't want interfered with by big red R on my windshield. Ugh.

Lots of nifty music to go see, hurray!

Enjoying a snowed in 39th. Have been so far unable to avoid work as much as I would like.

It's an interesting storm, big to unbelievably big wet heavy flakes intermixed with rain, sleet, etc.

Has been an excessively stressful workweek preceded by workweekend of same. Allergies have left the building anyhow.

L. got me a giant poster of Peretz, pretty awesome.

Sunday, February 21, 2010

Still with the scratchy nose & throat. Cough, cough, sneeze. Watching TV with dogs while awaiting L.'s triumphant return.

Still thinking about yesterday's lovely pizza.

Fell asleep on the couch, had some really terrible dreams. Hockey's on, going to go back to watching anime about vampire monsters, I think.

L.'s off to the island for the 3rd weekend running, kind of wish I'd gone with, only kind of as I still feel a bit ragged & Modern Apizza is on the way.

Doing laundry, watching ski jumping.

Slept for a very long time, could happily sleep more. Been doing network diagnostics on behalf of people not interested in them, getting a bit sick of that.

Car won't be done until Monday, skipping island, quiet weekend at home.

Took some antihistamine, feel funny.
Car is at mechanic, thought it had a problem with cv joint, turns out it actually has a problem with inner tie rods. Ain't life grand.

Finished out workweek from home with amusing network diagnostics. Having what I dearly hope is just an awful allergic to something in the air.

Contemplating weekend island overnight, if I continue to feel like crap, will probably skip it. Would be nice to see people, though.

Woke around 4:30 from unsettling dreams with a migraine. Spent a blurry six hours or so, then found some coffee on my nightstand, thanks, hon. Working from home.

Somehow managed to snow pretty hard most of the day yesterday & only leave a couple inches on the ground. Pretty, too bright for me to go outside for any length of time.

Curling is on.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Feel like it's time to go over the top, there's a whistling sound & I'm blown to bits, some teeth over there, some bits of hair.

Some time I'm going to get something done.

Lovely, lovely snow.

Sunday, February 14, 2010

Nothing as relaxing as winter olympics on the TV.

Weekend of winter olympics & cookery. Feel much better.

Friday, February 12, 2010

Amazingly, managed a nap.

Happy I worked from home this AM, apparently a brush fire on ridge behind the paper filled air intakes with smoke. Also, in an as far as I know unrelated incident, a homeless lady went into the Shell on Pleasant, bought a Coolata and some gas additive, then went out back & set fire to herself.

Excited for music later, should have more coffee.

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Been watching episodes of Columbo from 1971, have aged better than I have. Crumpled guy gets the best of murdering stiffs every time, love a happy ending.

Just walked the dogs through the scant snow, better than nothing.

Pickles has climbed on top of me again. How vulgar, Peretz thinks.

Monday, February 08, 2010

Belatedly realized that I had a knee brace for my hurty knee, seems somewhat helpful.

Scratchy throat from yesterday's practice, totally worth it, great fun.

Peretz is thinking about barking at me while, in the kitchen, L. is fixing supper.

Sunday, February 07, 2010

It's funny how much more rarely I find myself using my laptop at home since acquiring wacky computer phone. It's not that I use it in place of the laptop so much, as that it has taken over a range of activities, mostly messaging related, which would otherwise be entrees to further computer use. So, reduction of overall computer use, a bit of an increase in messaging related activities.

Need to do laundry. In a little while, band practice, seems like people might actually show up.

Also, maple cream + brioche bread = 100% win. Add coffee for bonus points, extra credit, etc.

Saturday, February 06, 2010

Enjoying some needed downtime.

Went to Winter Fare, got stuff for stew, also brioche bread, maple cream, local cheese. Lap of luxury & c.

Going to go help Henry with joining remoteless Roku to network in a bit. Studio rent party later.

Friday, February 05, 2010

Morning of working from home, lunch with Henry, now in my room recharging with my electrical devices.

L.'s off to the island overnight.

New coffee maker, may make some coffee with new coffee maker.

Thursday, February 04, 2010

OK, so sounds like my work schedule may in future involve a slightly less excessive amount of unnecessary driving, hurrah, make every day earth day & c.

Also on that front, keep trying to figure out how we might go about better insulating our old brick house, no options seem too inspiring as yet.

Knee keeps stiffening up at desk, v. annoying.

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

So I'm at this house show with all these college kids, weird how they keep coming, wave upon wave, nothing at all like the sea, each seemingly more bloodless & awkward than the one before but somehow never dwindling to nothing.

There is, of course, also nothing.

Show is pretty good.
Nice fresh coating of snow.

Drove to work through misty landscape, listening to the Smiths.

Groundhog Day. Can go either way.

Not too bad this go round, chaos at work, tasty pudding, right knee really hurts. Certainly nothing decisive.

Decisions are for when you can't see a clear path, not my kind of thing at all, really.
