If you don’t know me by now…

It should be pretty evident at this point, but I don’t have a whole lot of time or inspiration to update this blog. I have been remiss in my obligation to continue updating it,a nd for that, I apologize.  That said, Anyone reading this should probably check out my twitter feed.  I post to it several times a day – it’s far more active, and far better suited to my lifestyle.   Check it out.

Halloween costume

So it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do, but the release of fallout 3 on tuesday gave me the inspiration I needed. vault boy:

 

so, I flew around town last night, threw together the items I needed, and here’s the end result:

Back

I’m pleased with the result.  What do you think?

Shock and awe.

Perhaps this room should take a moment to collect itself and calm back down.

Rapunzel, rapunzel, let down your long hair…

I’m sick of my hair. Seriously. Girls often feel it and comment on how soft and silky it is, but let me tell you, you do not want my hair. It’s extremely fine, and extremely dense, but wholly impossible to style. Akin to Tim’s post on the LoadingReadyRun forums, I’ve gone most of my life getting 10$ Caesar cuts from a local barber. They’re not the most stylish cuts, but they’re short, low maintenance, and can be styled if neccessary. I’ve been wanting to get a little more adventurous with my hair though lately, so I went and hot a pricey cut from a stylist, along with some product (structuring lotion and styling paste) and made an attempt at styling. I dunno, maybe I’m stylistically inept, but I cannot make it do anything I’m happy with. If I fauxhawk it, it ends up flopping over to one side or pulling a tintin, and if I style it down then I end up with the same Caesar I could have gotten for 12$. Suggestions, anyone?

Three blind mice…

I’ve been a hockey referee for several years now, and if there’s one thing I’ve come to count on, it’s that the pre-season is always a bit of a gong show. Two weeks in a row now, I’ve shown up at the rink for a game that had been canceled, and no one bothered to let the officials association know. Today it happened to be for a game at 7am. I got up at 5:30, was at the rink by 6:20, and when I went to step on the ice at 6:55, watched as only one team hit the ice. Time for a Starbucks trip. It’s going to be a long day.

Just for the taste of it…

Well, against my better judgement, I decided to go see lakeview terrace, that domestic dispute movie with Samuel L. Jackson. I certainly don’t expect a whole lot, but I might get my money’s worth out of it. In a really unfortunate omen though, they gave me diet coke instead of regular. My night is ruined. :\

Sleep is for the week

I cannot stop yawning.  At all.  I’ve been at work since 8:30 this morning, and been fine all day, but sddenly it’s 3PM and I feel like I’ve been up for days.  I’ve petitioned my manager for a hammock under my desk and a mandated daily naptime before, but so far I haven’t seen anything come of it.

To be fair, I didn’t sleep very well last night, I had fallen asleep during the evening waiting for my laundry to dry, and had a solid nap.  So there’s little doubt it was that, coupled with some things that have been weighing heavily on my mind of late, which kept me up half the night.   i don’t think that’s why I’m tired though, it happens like clockwork, 3pm every day, I’m ready to keel over and die. 

It probably has something to do with blood sugar, or the timing of my lunch break, or some such thing, I dunno.  Regardless, I’m going to get a coffee.
