Raven & I @ NQTYD & No Name Slob’s




Sometimes being a perfectionist isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

OK, so I have literally spent weeks trying to finish some stupid new years meme. It’s included in the extended text of this entry… but it’s not finished! Nor will it be! I am moving on!

Speaking of, I have gotten to Wizard and Glass, so at least one of my quasi-resolutions is on track! I’m also pretty damn pumped about my new cellphone! As you probably noticed on the right-hand side of this here browser window is my flickr badge. I’ll try to keep it interesting.

Other than that not much is happening but it is again Winter Carnival time so please lemme know what you think of the following clues!

Today's Clue -- January 26, 2005
The siren calls, the giant falls
'Tween field generals the poet sings
That down beyond the once blue pond
Is treasure fit for kings
Clue #3 -- January 25
Be safe and we pledge, neither cliff nor water's edge
Figures in your hunting pursuit
What's that you hear? Please, have no fear
It was there before we moved in
Clue #2 -- January 24
Snow we have missed much, this not very white Christmas
But the ice has come to stay
The water's quite frozen at this park we have chosen
Along its paths you may while time away
Clue #1 -- January 23
The old curmudgeon was in high dudgeon
When a critter ran off with the loot
But this year to be credible, we've made it inedible
And stuck it in a park

Me as Sirius Black




Wow. I can hardly believe it’s 2005. I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions but while debating whether or not to make any I certainly came up with quite a list of goals so I guess I’ll share…

  • Exercise More

I have been gaining a little bit in the midsection and it does not please me. I don’t know whether to blame stress or being less active or getting old but I’m not gonna take it anymore!

  • Read the remainder of the Dark Tower Series before the next Harry Potter book is released

I’m a huge fan of the Dark Tower series and can’t believe that I haven’t finished them by now. (I did start re-reading the series when the revised edition of Gunslinger came out…)

  • Get Braces

I’ve had dental issues since I was a wee-un. This will be the year that is remedied.

  • Get an Insulin Pump

I’ve been "managing" my diabetes via insulin injections since I was diagnosed with Type 1 about eight years ago. Pumps today are practically an artificial pancreas. I just have to wear it on my belt. And change its batteries.

That’s five tests. However, it’s all stuff I should really already know. Unfortunately, I’m the kind of person who feels the need to way over study.

  • Be ready to move on 01-01-06

Raven & I have been considering relocating for some time. Unfortunately, there have been obstacles. The academic hurdle has been overcome. That leaves the financial and the general state of repairs of our condo. We may not be ready to pack our bags next January, but at the very least, I want to be able to.

  • Reach 200 Posts by 01-01-06

Coincidentally, this is my 100th post. That doesn’t sound bad, except that I’ve been "blogging" for over 2 years! My goal is not to post every day, but to have more of a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. That still puts me at an ideal of ~150 posts a year.

So I guess I’ve got some work to do…
