A Whole Lot Of Aching Going On

Still recovering from the weekend. Saturday was idyllic. Sunday was pure hell. Woke up with another damned migraine and spent the entire day flat on my back in a dark room. And I had plans. Plans within plans. All for naught. Still feeling the lingering effects of it - exhaustion (yes, even though I [...]

Science Suffers From Invincible Ignorance

Some Saturday morning randomness. I’ve been bewitched by our new 12.5″ non-stick pan. This morning’s blueberry pancakes turned out perfectly, and, if I do say so myself, were the best pancakes I have ever made (recipe here).
For some time now I’ve been looking forward to the new Terry Gilliam movie, The Brothers Grimm, [...]

The Study Of Repeatable, Observable, Natural Phenomena

It could be said that the husband and I are not very skilled at prioritizing tasks. For instance, today is trash day. The husband could have cleared out our overflowing wastebaskets and rolled the big trash bin to the curb. Instead he ripped my recently obtained CDs (from Amoeba Records) and loaded up the [...]

Une Nuit Sans Lumiére

Woke up remembering bits and pieces of strange dreams. Like, we’d gone up to Montreal to see The Arcade Fire play and it was a house show. But rather than playing in the house they were playing, like, on the front lawn or something…and there was nowhere to stand really so we had to crouch [...]

Freaked My Scene

Sorry for the silence. Still here, but going all ostrich-like…as I become increasingly stressed and overwhelmed.

And Then Small Happened

Some random thoughts before the big trip recap (which I plan to post in bite-sized chunks, just as I am doing with my trip photos on flickr).

I came across a sample of Aveda “dual nature” face lotion. I put some on. It smells like pickles. And not in a good way.
Upon entering rush hour [...]

We’re Back From California

But still on left coast time. Today should be pretty brutal…as the little man goes back to school, and I go back to work. And we’re already running late this morning. Doh. More soon.

It’s This Cheery Optimism That Gets Me Through Life

There are a million and one things that could go wrong, and believe me, I pondered a great many of them in the wee small hours of the morning, but it’s go time. And that’s that. The little man’s inaugral flight will be happening in just a few hours. And heck, if the Discovery [...]

Another Exciting Adventure In Sitting

I love a stormy night. Except when I’m trying to, you know, sleep. At 3:30am this morning a Zeus-style thunderclap woke me up. I jumped out of bed, with my adrenaline racing, before I realized what was up. Took me a while to calm down, but eventually I fell back to sleep. And who [...]

In The Face Of Forces Beyond Our Control

Day five of the almost-but-not-quite migraine. I’ve officially declared defeat and am going into to see the doc this afternoon. Any meds I receive might make me feel a little…fuzzy. But feeling fuzzy would be preferable to perpetually feeling like crap. Enough said. If I’m feeling up to it, I’d like to have some [...]
