Last week...

I was wearing shorts and basking in the sun. Now I'm back to wearing my heavy coat, scarf, and gloves. WTF, New England?!

It's that time!

If anyone local-ish would like to attend one or both of the concerts I'm performing at (yes, they are different!), drop me a line at lucrativepain@yahoo.com and I'll email you the pertinent info.

I'm nervous and excited!

Fashion victim?

Or just stupid?

A man wearing pegged jeans, especially when one pant leg is pegged higher than the other, ESPECIALLY with sneakers with NO SOCKS.


Seen on campus today. I wanted to run screaming in the other direction, but I had a class in the same building as the unfortunate young man.

As far as New England winters go...

this one has been a bust. I'm NOT complaining! ;)

Found on Facebook. I love it!

Overheard at the breakfast table...

mini-B (6 yrs. old): "I don't know what a 'chiropractor' is...sounds like a dinosaur!"

Trying to get a mental image of a dinochiro...hmmmm.

Spring Break!


In the words of a famous person on the intarwebz, that is all.

Overheard at the breakfast table...

B. (Mrs. SCI-FI) and I are discussing the merits of having lunch at our local faux-Mexican place again...

B: Well, at least if we go there, we're sure to get lots of free stuff since that kid who works there likes you.

Me: Oh, c'mon! He doesn't "like" me, I'm just a good customer who's polite.

B: He has a crush on you!

Me: I'm old enough to be his mother!

B: Maybe he has a thing for MILFs.

*blink blink*

Me: Yeah, I got nuthin'. Except I'M BLOGGING THIS!

B. rolls her eyes...

Damn traffic!

The traffic was so bad on my commute to work last night, it took me FOUR TIMES as long to get there than normal.

Yeah, a whole EIGHT MINUTES instead of the customary two.

Thank you, Weer'd!

SCI-FI, Weer'd, and I had a lovely afternoon at the range today, turning money into smoke and noise.

After firing so many,  many handguns over the past couple of years, I've finally decided on a carry gun!

This is quite the momentous occasion. And the winner is ................................drumroll please.............................. the CZ 82!

It feels great in my hands, I shoot fairly accurately with it (and the more I practice, the better I shall get), the recoil is moderate, and I just plain DIG the epic muzzle flash and the clouds of smoke from the "dirty, Russian gunpowder". Also, and the importance of this can NOT be overstated, it's a very cheap gun. Even a strapped-for-cash college student like myself can swing the purchase of one of these guns. And that's a very good thing.

So thanks again, Weer'd, for inviting us onto your playground and sharing your toys so nicely. You're a good friend.
