Today, I’m frustrated about… well, a lot of things, really, but I don’t want to share all of them with my internet readership and in any case, I think a lot of it is just a hungover feeling from having run that 11K yesterday, and not accomplishing much of anything today. But one of the […]
I ran 56:44 net (56:49 gross) in the 11 km at this year’s Thesinge Run on Saturday, finishing 18th out of 49. I’m very satisfied with this result. Prior to the event, I didn’t feel ready for it – I’d come out of trainings feeling like I couldn’t keep up with my training-mates and on […]
Drawing that just popped up in my head the other day, after talking to Aggie about the economic crisis. Of course, after the drawing pops up in one’s head, one has to do the hard work of drawing it – including research for things like wheelbarrows full of money. When I googled for “Wheelbarrow full […]

She hasn’t lost everything – she was about to move into her boyfriend’s, and that saved her laptop and (I think) her computer, but she lost her scanner, […]
Aw man…. Pink Floyd founder Richard Wright dies at 65. Obituary.
Aggie posted this lovely Invasion-based drawing on her blog as a birthday present to me: Fay watches on as Kel cuts up a fish. By Aggie. Click to enlarge. Thank you, sweetheart! I love you too!
When Aggie and I were at Nashville zoo back in May, she was disappointed that all she could see of the porcupines was their rear ends. Yesterday, I was in Emmen zoo as part of a company outing, and got to take a few shots with my cellphone camera. Most of them were no good, […]
Some miscellaneous things: First off: there will not be a new comic next week. My 37th birthday is tomorrow, and my present to myself is a day off the treadmill. No deadlines, no accomplishment targets. I may or may not do any work, but I’m releasing myself from all obligations for just one weekend in […]
