Well. This was not the best of days. I don’t want to get into specific details for a variety of reasons. I think I can get away with this much: I got an emotional voicemail last night about Otherspace, and when I tried to return the call today, the person who called didn’t answer the phone. So I spent the day in a state of anxious anticipation, and now I know I won’t get back in touch with this person until […]

Well. This has been a rather bad day, with a good ending. The day started with insults. All digital: e-mails and forum posts making wild assumptions or withholding information. Made me stalk around a bit, alone, to let off some steam before replying graciously. I was apologetic for causing any frustrations or making mistakes. Cleared up what misunderstandings I could, and turned away from a discussion that got […]

Okay, so, what have I been up to lately, you all may well ask? Or not; some of my best friends don’t read this blog. Fie! Fie, I say! Whatever that means. Anyvay, I’m in an odd mood. I feel a need to describe my weekend, but it all seems so uninteresting, even to me. So, how to make it interesting? Let’s see what I can do. Last week, I made […]

Spent most of today at home. My parents bought me an oven for my birthday (may sound like an odd gift, but I requested it after my old oven died), so I baked some scones and worked on a few technical things. …yeah, this is a pretty anaemic entry. But it’s the end of the weekend, and I just don’t feel like blogging. Haven’t felt like it for a while. Don’t have much to say, really.

Been watching a lot of anime lately. Some might chuckle at this and ask, “Aren’t you always?” Actually, I haven’t been watch much at all. Just not been in the mood. But I’ve come across a bunch of oddball anime that really intrigues me. And perhaps that’s why: One of the reasons I’ve been intrigued by anime is because it’s been on the edges of society. When I first got into anime, the only […]

Well. It’s been quite a week. I had intended to spend last Sunday wandering through the museums in D.C. I suffer from a common affliction: the native who never actually visits the local famous landmarks. But when my eyes opened Sunday morning, I realized that it was September 11th, and I did not want to go into D.C. on the anniversary of 9/11 if I didn’t have to. So I stayed home and worked my way […]

Okay. Okay, okay, okay. I’m not dead. I didn’t come down with the Mexican Whooping Grippe. I was not abducted by cute, big-eyed alien girls and whisked away on a wild interstellar adventure. I did not travel to a distant land to avenge the death of my master. I did not stumble into a giant robot fight and get caught up in a war. I did not lose myself, and I did not find myself. I’ve just […]

Wow. Summer continues to impress with warm beauty every day. Fabulous. Meanwhile, quite a bit’s been hapenning. I’ve been hunting around for a renter on Craig’s List, and got a phone call on Thursday from a woman, asking if she could look at the place. She seemed reasonable enough, so she arranged to come over that evening. Turned out to be a very nice woman who liked the place, and wanted […]

Brainstormed a novel. Chatted with friends. Proceessed everything in my inbox. Made hard-cooked eggs for breakfast tomorrow, so I can start the day with some protein as well as my usual orange juice and Clif Bar. Did a load of laundry. Ran for forty minutes, and as I jogged down my neighborhood’s sidewalk, I gulped in the fresh air and gazed at the star-studded curtain of the night sky. Perfect.

From June through August, summer’s been a crotchety old man. Not villainous, just a general obstruction to good times. It’s been too hot, or too muggy, or constantly raining, or some combination of the three (occasionally all of them). Never to such an extreme that anyone can seriously complain; no heat waves or typhoons. Just generally unpleasant. Then this past week it made up for its past sins. […]
