snapshots of an idle mind

i really want to go climbing on tuesday and have no one to go with… er today.  dammit.

i could boulder but i don’t really want to as it involves more landing on my fucked feet.


i haven’t been sleeping much lately for various and sundry excellent reasons… and i finally got some sleep!

and not just one night either, i mean two solid nights of more than eight hours and i’m just now considering feeling human again.

fortunately this weekend is an at home weekend so i should continue my recovery.


i’ve been playing a lot of scrabble, clearly i need a scrabble dictionary.

and how lame is it that roman numerals count as words?

pretty damn lame.


i’m going to orlando in a few weeks for a conference…

no big deal right?  i mean it’s orlando and disney except…



not to mention that it will be warm and i will get to swim in at least a pool and maybe an ocean!

miss nat and i don’t yet know what we will do with our day together though we do know there will be margaritas by her pool the night before.



it’s my aunt’s 80th birthday party… what the hell do you get an eighty year old who has everything?


i have a date for said party.

i know, i don’t believe it either.


my business is doing well enough these days that i don’t really have time to blog much during my workday anymore.

it’s weird to be working this much and yet awesome.

i really find that i treasure the weekend a lot more than i used to and that i’m really, really glad that i gave up my sunday class.

it’s funny how exhausting this work really is when you actually do it in some form of full time way.  full time in this case is between twenty and thirty hours a week.

factor in a couple of hours of education every week and some driving and phone calls and you’re effectively working full time hours in a job that takes twice the mental energy of anything that has gone before.

every minute of every hour that i have a client in front of me requires enormous focus.  this is utterly different than jobs where you pay attention here and there but can kind of take mental breaks as need be.

i suspect it’s a lot like computer programming in that any hour spent programming is akin to three hours of anything else.


did i mention that i’m having a hallowe’en shindig?  invitations are now out, if you have not received one but feel you should be invited please email me.

if you are the only person whose comments i have ever been forced to moderate you can just assume you are not invited.



annual dim sum has been scheduled!

man i love dim sum and it’s so especially awesome with fifteen or twenty people because you really can eat way too much and try everything.


life is good.


  1. i want to hear more about what… i mean, WHO… is keeping you up nights…

  2. Don’t we all want the gossip? But certainly don’t blame Sass for keeping somethings just for herself.

  3. terry: it’s not just a who… i’m also having some sleep issues and some too many early morning client issues…

    but way to spot the gossip


    adam: thank you sir, rest assured gossip will come when waiting is full :)

  4. I agree! You just can’t drop “I have a date” with “not enough sleep” into the same post without raising eyebrows. You are teasing us all!

  5. Yaay sassy goodness!! We can do whatever you want to do, how’s that??? :) And I hope it is warm enough. We had a bit of a cold front. But a cold front in Orlando doesn’t quite resemble a cold front. Did I mention yaay!?

  6. clarity: okay okay i posted a pic of him :)

    nat: well, if the weather is nice let’s go to the beach and if not let’s…

    no wait, let’s play it by ear!
