Dearly Beloved... A wedding that left me breathless [Nov. 6th, 2011|09:04 pm]

This weekend I served as last-minute officiant for the wedding of a friend. On Wednesday, I was asked if I could fill in for a wedding to take place on Saturday. I had availability, I wanted to help out, I said yes!

Two Weddings and a Roadtrip [Sep. 25th, 2011|05:42 pm]
On the ride home from attending the second wedding in a week, I navel-gaze about my relationship some. Rated M for Maudlin and Many, Many words.

Weight Loss Update [Sep. 11th, 2011|01:26 pm]

Today marks the end of the first full quarter of my dietary change.

I wrote a whole bunch of words on about it on my blournal. You…yes, you…are invited to come read about it. :)

It's Not You, It's Me [Sep. 10th, 2011|01:27 am]

Well, I've made a couple of decisions recently…one is that I'm going to migrate my stuff the rest of the way over to my site. The other is that I'm going to go commentless after the move.

Further explanation in my post on the subject.

Turning 35 [Jul. 23rd, 2011|11:26 am]

Today, I turn 35. Just over the half-way point for the world's average life expectancy. In the latter half of the 1800s, I would be old by any reasonable measure of the term. As late as the turn of the 20th century I would be at the statistical end-of-life at this ripe old age.

More blathering that you have to read because it's my birthday!

"Friends" List [Jul. 10th, 2011|04:51 am]

My favorite “take by ball and bat and go home” on the Internet has to be the ‘unfriending’ of someone on LJ. It's the ultimate way to say “I am so far gone as to think that this indicates some kind of social contract that will injure you emotionally’ when the reality is that, if you are the sort to do such a thing, we were probably not friends to begin with…which means all you've done is stop following me.

In every case that it has happened thus far, it has proved a blessing. So, really, it's kind of like a parting present from an emotional unstable kid. Thank you for the delightful presents, crazies!! :)

P-R-I-VIL-E-G-E (Find out what it means to me...) [Jul. 9th, 2011|04:10 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

So, there's this new social media platform by Google—no, not Buzz…or Wave…this time it's Google+. At some point in the not-so-distant future I'd really like to assemble a post about the service and where it fits into my social media and Internet self-aggrandizement landscape, but first I have to figure out where it fits into that landscape; a task proving more difficult as time goes on, rather than less. Instead, I want to discuss something only peripherally related. Let's talk about privilege.

On Health and Diet (and Moobs) [Jun. 15th, 2011|05:02 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

On Friday, I had yet another followup appointment with the Doctor. It went about as well as I could have hoped…but wait, let me back up a little bit first.

It's no particular secret that my body has made the (probably accurate) determination that I am a absentee landlord/slumlord and has largely given up trying to support my hedonistic1 lifestyle, but in the past several months it has gotten to the point where I really felt like I had to do something I tend to avoid doing…I went and saw a doctor.

And this is the tl;dr of what happened…

Happy Anniversary, Baby [May. 1st, 2011|11:34 pm]
[Tags|, ]

A warning for most of my readers: this particular post is a note to my wife. You're welcome to read on, but I imagine it will be boring if you are not Ger.

If you're Ger (or Ger-curious), read on…
