I got slammed with work today before I even walked in the door to my office. Several hours later, lunch time came and went without allow me so much as a passing moment to look up and catch my breath. I certainly didn’t have time to make a run to the grocery for those healthy … Continue reading Mundane lunch haiku
Mid-JanuaryDoldrums, malaise, ennui. Bleh.Time to plan a trip.
It’s pretty well documented that I’m not a morning person. And by “not a morning person”, I mean that if I was given the choice between of getting up in the God-forsaken morning or having to fend off an attack by a large, organized pack of ravenous canines indigenous to Austrailia with nothing but a … Continue reading The view outside my windshield
As is so often the case when that first week of real work in the new year rolls around, I find myself swamped worse than Luke Skywalker looking for a 900 year-old Jedi Master.

And as I’ve said before, progress bars = science, and science doesn’t lie. After wrapping up that last … Continue reading It. Is. Done. (kinda)
I really should post something interesting for you. I mean, I really want to, too. No time, though. Not this weekend, anyway. I'm knee-deep in the home stretch of revising Project Macaroni. Underwater. In over my head. Up a creek. Down and out. Insert directionally-related idiom here. After this bout of revisions, it goes to … Continue reading Excuses, excuses, fish, lizard.

They … Continue reading Taste great, less filler (with Bonus! Chips!)
