  1. Back in DC, safe and sound and wondering what in the hell happened.

    11 June 2007

    Last week some very good friends of Lyssa and I (Heron61 and Teaotter) stayed with us for a couple of days, and then we headed out to the Four Quarters Farm for the gather called Walking the Thresholds - camping for three days in the middle of the woods of Pennsylvania, completely off the grid, with good friends and extended family, eccentrics one and all, for company.

    Sounds like fun... and it was, for the most part.

    Teaotter went to stay with Laurelinde and family around the middle of last week, so there were only three of us who packed up …

  2. Easter weekend 2007 in review, or, "I can't believe we made that much ham!"

    09 April 2007

    Easter weekend is always a busy one. Either we're getting ready to head back to Pennsylvania to spend the day with one or both families, cleaning, cooking, or getting ready to have people over for dinner. As it turned out, we accomplished most of the tasks on that list, as well as a couple that weren't, all in preparation for Grant and his girlfriend to come over on Sunday afternoon for dinner.

    The task began on Friday night with a couple of loads of laundry and cleaning up around the apartment, followed by driving over most of creation on Saturday …

  3. Wise words from the Three Stooges b0rked my weblog!

    06 March 2007

    It seems that my body's biochemistry is ever so slightly messed up due to the large amounts of analgesics and antibiotics I've been taking lately in preparation for the peculiarly mediaeval form of torture referred to today as root canal therapy, which feels like anything but therapy if you're on the recieving end for a couple of hours at the very least. It's been difficult to think clearly for the past couple of days, and I seem to have the short term memory of a goldfish. On top of all of that is a general feeling of malaise - much like …

  4. A far busier week than I'd bargained for.

    04 February 2007

    The past couple of nights have been busy ones, though not painfully so. Our weekly stitch-and-bitch had been moved up to Wednesday so that Elwing could join us after work, along with Hasufin, Hummingwolf, Orthaevelve, and Kyrin, who'd been effectively out of action for a couple of weeks since the new year started. As it turned out, I had to run to the Metro station to get Hummingwolf, drop her off at home, then head out to get Orthaevelve at her place, drop her off, and then set out for Micro Center to pick up something for work. Seeing as …

  5. Doesn't anyone sell flippin' bookcases anymore?!

    29 January 2007

    It's been an interesting weekend, to be sure.. Lyssa and I have been in the market for a couple of things lately, namely a bookcase or media shelf of some kind that we can migrate our DVD collection to, and ring binders that we can move our CD collections into while we rip and encode everything. So, to that end, we spent Saturday driving around searching for stuff along those lines. In two days, we didn't find any bookcases anywhere we looked (well, that's not entirely true, I did find one bookcase, a floor model at OfficeMax, but the construction …
