It’s business time

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

It’s business
It’s business time
I know what you’re trying to say
You’re trying to say it’s time for business
It’s business time, ooh
It is business time.  It’s not that business time.  It’s actual business time.
Which is unfortunate, because I have no head for business.  I need someone to manage my business.  Like a business manager.  Someone to handle [...]

A CMDS evening

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

I spent the entire evening playing with the new CyberMonkeyDeathSquad blog.  It was actually work, but it felt like playing.  Work shouldn’t be that much fun.
I see the blog getting less regular in the near future.  I’m going to funnel more of my energy into the site now that it’s… now that it’s the way [...]

The lap of luxury

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

For the record, this article actually was written yesterday, and should have been published then.  Someone neglected to push the publish button.  I’m working on a conspiracy theory to explain it all.
When I woke up this morning, I thought the big event of my day was going to be the Iron Man 2 screening that [...]

Fatherhood

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

One of my best friends is a father.
I’ve had friends who were fathers when I met them.  And I’ve had friends become fathers after we had drifted apart.
After we had drifted apart?  What a melodramatic statement.  Here’s the thing, though.  As hard as I try to distill it into a pithy statement, it wants to [...]

Sunday afternoon

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

Sunday afternoon is such a strange time.
I’m torn between wanting to be productive, wanting to be lazy, and wanting to be adventurous.  So far, lazy has been winning the day.
Tara has been the productive one.  She has fed us both, cleaned the bath tub, worked on the laundry, knitted, and written a blog entry.
I did [...]

Such a clean machine

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

Today’s entry is going to be short.  Short and sweet.
The new desktop system is fully up and running.  I’m sitting in front of it, writing this piece on it… right now.  Sweet.
All the credit, and many thanks, go out to my Father-in-law.  I stopped building PCs many years ago, and things have gotten a bit [...]

Perspective

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

That’s the way that the world goes ’round.
You’re up one day and the next you’re down.
It’s half an inch of water and you think you’re gonna drown.
That’s the way that the world goes ’round.
Lyrics courtesy of the great John Prine
When I walked out of work this afternoon, I was feeling a bit stressed.  I came [...]

Hummingbirds, webcams, and dysthymia

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

I’m back again, with another daily peek into the strange and bizarre place that is my mind.
Before I get into that, though, I want to share this with you.  Phobe Allens WebCam.  Phoebe is a hummingbird.  A Channel Islands Allen’s Hummingbird, to be exact.  The Channel Islands variety of the Allen’s hummingbird is non-migratory, as [...]

Magritte Moment redux

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

I have been sick most of today.  When I’m sick, I don’t really feel like writing.
Actually, that’s not true.  I feel like writing.  I want to write.  I don’t feel like sitting here and typing.  There’s a difference.  It’s subtle.
Through a wonderful coincidence, I’ve discovered that Ian Fischer has put his short film Magritte Moment [...]

Hey Homo!

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

Before anyone asks, or says anything rude, the title of today’s is not a homophobic slur.  It’s a celebration.  Tonight, the lovely lady and I are going to the drafthouse for Hey Homo, the monthly program that celebrates gay themed film.  Tonight’s film is Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.  Hugo Weaving in drag is guaranteed [...]
