Energy Boost

Plinky asked, “What ener­gizes you?” I strug­gle with major depres­sion (actu­al­ly, treat­­ment-resis­­tant depres­sion), so it’s dif­fi­cult to find much that ener­gizes me. How­ev­er, real­ly great con­ver­sa­tion with just a few peo­ple does it quite well. The same goes for sto­ry games, or a real­ly good table­top role­play­ing ses­sion that focus­es on char­ac­ters and plot rather than […]

Lost Girl and Canadian Television

Katie recent­ly intro­duced me to Lost Girl, a show that is very obvi­ous­ly NOT an Amer­i­can show. It’s exot­ic and amus­ing and sexy—especially sexy. But then what do you expect of a show about a suc­cubus? I knew it was­n’t Amer­i­can as soon as I heard some of the ban­ter, which would­n’t fly on broadcast […]

Maybe It Isn’t the Flu

Katie seems to be feel­ing a bit bet­ter. She slept through most of the day, and just got up a few min­utes ago (right at the end of my and Sam’s date) feel­ing like she could eat some­thing. Sol­id food, even! That’s progress. Since she did­n’t have any antivi­rals, I don’t think this was really […]

“Go ahead, America. You don’t need us.”

“Watch all the top­soil go down the Mis­sis­sip­pi. Trans­port your chil­dren in bas­kets on top of your SUV death­mo­biles. Keep play­ing with your cute and cud­dly pal, the atom. Press your nose against the TV screen for even more edu­ca­tion­al 3rd Rock From The Sun enjoy­ment. Use plen­ti­ful gaso­line to burn book- read­ers at the […]

Dollhouse Fans? TV stuff

Do any of you record Doll­house? We don’t do cable, so Katie and I have been watch­ing it stream­ing on Hulu. This com­ing Fri­day’s episode isn’t going to be streamed, though, and we don’t want to miss it. Any chance of some help? Pret­ty please? It’s fair­ly amaz­ing how much you can find to watch […]

Time Flies

I used to get so annoyed when my moth­er would say, “Twen­ty years from now, nobody will know the dif­fer­ence.” She was wrong in a sense—I cer­tain­ly still know the dif­fer­ence, about so very many things. On the oth­er hand, I do under­stand the longer view much bet­ter now. Twen­ty years seemed like such a […]

Tired Now

I had a pain doc­tor appoint­ment last week but was­n’t up to going. So Sam resched­uled it for me, and I head­ed across town today. Appar­ent­ly, this was the day for “fit­ting in” every­body who has can­celed an appoint­ment in the last God­dess-knows-how-long, because I arrived to find no park­ing (even on the street in front […]
