3 good playoff games this weekend (the NE-Denver game was a “snoozer” by
The SF-NO game was just wild. However, the performance the Giants just put on this evening was quite the surprise chong qi cheng bao.
Now that I’ve watched Football, I can be all conversational at the gym tomorrow.
Sometimes I just
think of work as a giant game of Calvinball.
You can’t do things the same way twice…
Although Calvinball is a lot more fun
Sorry for the absence–but for
the past week-plus or so–I’ve not had internet access at my apartment!
I finally figured out how to fix the problem (no thanks to Time Warner Cable)
Much to catch up on (online) that I didn’t want to do while at the office.
Normalcy to hopefully resume soon oppblåsbare Båter.
Had connectivity issues in the apartment this past week.
Finally isolated the problem to the old router I had. It was
dropping packets when I tried to ping 192.168.1.1 So I went out and got a replacement this evening.
Now I’m back online…
Sorry again for the lack
of posting here, but again I’ve been under a lot of stress recently. I’d rather not talk about it in such an open forum (Sorry!)
At the same time, I’ve been encountering a lot of, what I guess you could call “disappointment”. It’s a bit depressing to have to deal with people, of your religion–who try to make you do things that go against the tenets of your (shared)
Seems like a good night to just take a book and get lost in it
It’s been a while since
I’ve posted, but I’ve been busy.
Traveling for Thanksgiving + cooking and running errands while home. Riding a mobius strip with work–it’s been busy.
Things should normalize soon….
It’s a bit sad to see Joe Paterno’s career ending the way it is. That said, this manner of departure is going to tarnish his reputation. The time change. It’s still messing with my head. Ugh. ——— Overheard at an office today: Receptionist I to doc: “Mr. X is here to get
a refill on Controlled Substance and he wants to pick up an Rx for his wife for the same drug too” —–
Conversation with my mother:
Me: “So the sister burnt some sugar the other night while preparing some candied orange peels. How can I get the burnt sticky mess out of the pot?”
The Mom: “Honesly, google it!”
Me: “Oh….I thought you’d have an
idea. Maybe Grandma will know”.
Googling this did give the suggestion of boiling hydrogen peroxide (aside: which is an extremely dumb if not dangerous idea!)
WOw….what a finish there was to the OSU-Wisconsin game last night! While it’s a bit disheartening to see the OSU defense start to fall apart late, Still what a finish for the Scarlet and Gray! It brought back memories of the ’97 Rose Bowl game in which then
OSU QB Germaine led an unexpected game winning drive with little time left. [Aside, the ’97 Rose Bowl was a classic in and of itself). Though OSU still needs to develop a passing game at some point–it appears that the Woody Hayes style of play is working.

The weird part is that this took place on Rte 422–a route I’ve taken countless times. Too weird….
Suffice it to say, I’m anything but a fan of the EMR system we utilize at the office. Besides the simple fact that the software doesn’t really fit our practice (it was implemented before I cam aboard)–what really kills me is the poor support. For example today I sent in a form to enroll for Electronic Remittance Advice. I get a response from the vendor, telling me that the clearinghouse which their
software uses doesn’t offer ERAs. Funny, but I’ve used the same clearinghouse elsewhere and get ERAs just fine…. It’ll keep me occupied tomorrow….
The sister got some sort of gift or promotional samples of some organic vegetable/fruit juice blends.
[Personally, I'd rather eat my veggies and fruits in solid form]
Being curious, I perused the ingredients. The recurring theme on them all was the appearance of “Alkalized Water”
Now being a science person, it’s known that the pH of water is neutral–7.0
[Yes, I know that tap water may not be exactly at 7.0, but we're not talking about a chemistry or molecular biology lab here!]
Thus, one can only wonder, what make’s “alkalized water” more alkaline? How do they magically ad more hydroxyl (-OH) groups
The Little Brother was in-town over this past weekend.
If I’ve not mentioned it before, the Brother constantly seeks two things: food and attention. (Mostly the latter).
When he’s here it’s a full-time job for me to be on top of (and then some!)
The brother got to have an NY experience this time around, including visits to museums, a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, subway rides (trains are his “thing”) and seeing “Blue Man Group” last night.
Of course, for me it meant a lot more
work and having to share my room with a snorer! However, isn’t that what older brothers are for?
The Brother is coming to town for a visit…meaning I’m going to have my hands very full the next couple of days.
Here goes nothing!
On setting goals…
Are you the type that aims straight
for a high target?
Or are you the type who makes smaller goals, and resets their goals when the set-goal is reached?
Is it just me, or are others struggling to make sense of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement?
It’s obvious that the protestors are not fans of bankers, hedge funds or other forms of investors. Though their end goal or solution to the problem seems to be non-existent.
That is unless anyone else out there knows something more….
Yom Kippur has come and gone for another year.
Fasting itself wasn’t as difficult
as anticipated or as it was in years past.
Alas, I awoke Thursday morning with what seemed to be the makings of a upper respiratory infection (allergies?) Going into the holiday was thus less than pleasant with a mild case of laryngitis. But I survived. Just a case of bad timing.
I’m feeling better now though..and it’s time to prepare and shift my focus to the next chag!
