The One Where the Gym becomes a Teenage Nightclub

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      6 comments

I am a morning workout person. Shhhh. Don't tell anyone. Particularly anyone I've known prior to 2013. Those are the people who, when suggesting a discussion with me prior to 8:30am, came bearing coffee and allowed a minimum of ten minutes ... Read more

The one where I get all emotional

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      2 comments

yeah. yesterday. ugh. I mean, not ugh. But ugh. you know. See, it was vetrans day, and I sort of just put that in the dark recesses of my brain and went about my business. That consisted mostly of spending my morning, to the extent I c... Read more

The one about Falling off the Wagon in Maine and not regretting it one bit...

Monday, November 10, 2014      3 comments

So. I spent the weekend in Maine. I flew off to Manchester, NH on Friday and then got in a car and drove to this quaint bed and breakfast with my wife to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary. It was expensive as hell and way over the to... Read more

The one with the Boss Song and the Attitude Adjustment

Friday, October 17, 2014      6 comments

So I'm in the steam room talking to this guy Tom, an old retiree who is the center of the social life of the gym locker room in the mornings. He is loud and wonderful, always with a smile, and sharing jokes with everyone. Once you're on Tom's go... Read more

The one with the very poorly articulated new beginnings thing

Monday, October 06, 2014      4 comments

My weekend was lovely. Well, except for the vaguely sick kids. Not totally sick. Not like, throw up all over the place sick. More like waking up in the night and feeling generally ungood and dry cough sick. Each day was pretty much kidstuff -- r... Read more

The one with the keystone habits

Tuesday, September 23, 2014      3 comments

Yeah. So new job. Which is fun, but also sucks. That's how it is to be starting new. There is never enough time in the day and you never feel like you're going to get over that hump of learning new. I will, and it's an awesome new job, new possi... Read more

The one with the 80's throwback and the alumni frat party

Monday, September 22, 2014      2 comments

Saturday morning I woke up and decided I wanted to get a little "light workout" on. Light workout in this case was a three or four hour walk through longwood gardens with my kids. First, it's a great way to get the kids out of my wife's hai... Read more

The one with the early morning hot date...

Friday, September 19, 2014      5 comments

You know how when you need to wake up for something you're up earlier than the alarm. Yeah. This morning. What was I waking up for? What was this thing I had to be so on time for? I had a hot date with this incredibly attractive, abso... Read more

The one where he works through the pain and finds his pleasure

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      5 comments

It's all in the shadows. The mornings are filled with them. The way the earth is lit by nothing more than a reflection and the distant horizon. The way my room is lit only with the faded light of a nightlight in the bathroom and the distant... Read more

The one that is new and ouchie

Monday, September 15, 2014      5 comments

The alarm goes off at five fifty. I am up and out of the bed and off to pull on some clothing. It's a half drunkards walk, albeit minus the prerequisite alcohol that often drives such things. I stumble more than walk. I seek without lights for a... Read more

The one with Metal and Lace and Words and Stuff

Friday, September 12, 2014      4 comments

I was walking to a friends house last night. He just tapped the keg of his home-brewed Witbeer and I thought I could use a beer and he asked if I wanted to stop by and try it at the bus-stop yesterday morning, and yesterday was one of those days... Read more

The one with the story and the heavy metal and the eating

Wednesday, September 10, 2014      5 comments

I tell stories. It's sort of what I do. Life is a rich tapestry of events, of thoughts and feelings and philosophy. A dense set of fibers, creating a texture to your experiences. Beneath each thread on the surface, a fabric of what's benea... Read more

The one where I 5x5 for me, and for you

Friday, September 05, 2014      6 comments

The alarm goes off at 5:45. No matter. I've been up for more than an hour anyway staring into the darkness. This brain does things, like, think. Stupid brain. And so I roll out of bed, quick to shut off the alarm to allow everyone in t... Read more

The one with the trunk and the vacation

Thursday, July 31, 2014      2 comments

Stand on the scale. Just like every morning (and night. Yes. Crazy). One Seventy-Eight. My low last summer, immediately after the spartan sprint was 173. It's not that. But it's below 180, my nemesis from the winter and spring. Add to... Read more

The one with the fashionista and the wedding advice

Wednesday, July 02, 2014      1 comments

So I'm in the office of a coworker, and we're talking wedding dresses and diets. What is it with the wedding dress and diet correlation? I mean, there is this strange sense that the preparation for this fantastic and wonderful day is tied ... Read more
