Day 4 of the 5 day quest: Putting together a shelf for little M because it's an early birthday gift and she wants a shelf for her dioramas. The inserts (which look horribly complicated to assemble are left for mum and mum to take care of).

The reboot sequence is almost done
My break is almost over. Bah. And I have to say that I'm losing patience with the Goldfinch. It drags on. There is a certain amount of Byzantine drama that goes on, but no Voldermort nor Death Eaters to liven things up. Dru...

I accept the challenge except with one tiny proviso - I'm not taggin people because the people I could think of tagging would hit me at being tagged. And I don't like being hit :)

Day 1. Memories of times past. Journals from 1987 through 1997 before I switched to a digital format. What do I do with these? Common sense says to dump them in the recycling bin; ceremony says to burn them.

Sobriety
Feeling sober today - at least right now. Not that I've been partaking of alcohol or anything druggy like the protagonists of The Goldfinch. I can't quite say that I'm enjoying the book. It's more like a train accident you can't help gawking at. All that's ...

Jammy Bastard
Today, Monday April 14th, 2014. The final step in jam making - letting it drip dry I make pineapple jam. I also head out to the Bay Bridge but decide not to walk it as it would take too long. Instead I shall run it sometime. Then I head to Target to get cle...

Counting stars (kind of)
This post started April
4th, and continued April 12th. Friday 4th April, 2014: Counting stars, not money,
but stars - what a lovely thought, except that the clouds they are in the way
again. Now, what was I thinking this morning on my way into work? I remem...

Day 3 - passing on a family tradition to little M, making of pineapple tarts. The ratio of pineapple jam to tart is a bit high, but better than the other way around!

Day, picture and story #2 +Daniel Szilagyi 
#fivedayquest 

The old and new Bay bridge that links San Francisco and Oakland. I ran it today because I have this thing about running on bridges. A ten miler (round trip) from the Ikea at Emmeryville.

And now, for bacon, eggs, and coffee.

Story
Tagline
Obsessive yet lazy at the same time. Compulsive, yet able to ignore compulsions. Yin and Yang? Or simply complex. You decide.
Introduction
If you're hungry and feeling haunted, perhaps even wracked with guilt, then you've found me.
Bragging rights
I will beat V's record in getting tenure yet...
