My friend Christine (aka

My friend Christine (aka Smartiehouse) is participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day in Seattle, July 22-24. It’s a 60 mile walk that spans 3 days, complete with a mobile camp and sleeping tents. This isn’t a fundraiser where you walk a bit, go home, then come back the next day and walk some more. 3 days, straight-through. Christine’s trying to…

This was weird

So, in addition to the account statements and financial documents I was shredding, I also had a big pile of poems I had printed out. My typical process is to write on the computer, then print it out, make edits, and then re-enter those changes on my computer. I’ve had a big backlog of printed poems pile up, but I…

Productivity–

I also got World of Warcraft this morning. I’ve been debating getting this game as it will, in all likelihood, decrease my productivity severely. That, and it’s not like I need one more thing to keep me in front of a computer keyboard, wasting more time. Still it should be fun, based on what little I’ve seen of it. I’m…

Went out and about this

Went out and about this morning, and ran a ton of errands. Grabbed stuff from Target and Staples, and got a lot of office supplies. Mostly, storage stuff for all the extra clutter in my house. But I did get a few items for the office – a magnetic dry erase board, an extra trash can, and this guy: Yeah,…

Injury Update

Chelsea just posted a picture of her WhirlyBall injury. It’s good to know that people walked away from my birthday party with bruises. And on a side note – Malachi is HUGE! It’s been way too long since I’ve seen Matt and Tracy. I need to call those two up.

Everbody, meet Sasha

For all the times that Liz and Steph have watched after my cat Harmony… this is the first time they’ve called in the favor. While they’re out of town, I’m looking in on their cat Sasha. I stopped in this morning quickly, before I got my coffee. And came back after dinner, and hung out a bit more. She’s incredibly…

Dinner with Justin

Got out of the house again, and met up with Justin at Santullo’s. Saw this en route. Look familiar at all? Spotted this on the corkboard. I thought it was funny as hell, and deserved some documentation. Chicago folks! If you’re heading out to Cali, give Todd a holler. Dinner was good, and I ended up breaking with tradition. Instead…

Phil sent some pics

Phil sent some pics from the office today. This, ladies and gents, is the reason why we all started working from home a few weeks back. A slightly wider view of the room (technically, it’d be my desk on the left, Chris’ desk in the middle and Matt’s desk on the right). I think that this is the view through…

Round: Translated

Some of you might be familiar with a flash piece I made entitled Round. Well, I got an email from someone named Laura, who had stumbled across it. In talking with her, I mentioned that I didn’t really know what the words meant. The song I used for Round is actually a German round for male voices, entitled Sing dem…
