Early night tonight. I had trouble falling asleep last night, but I intend to make up for it tonight. I’m off to bed as soon as I finish this post, even though it’s still light out and even though there is a rumor that Mars is particularly visible on the east coast tonight. I dropped […]
It stopped raining yesterday and today was bright and sunny with temperatures in the 70s. I was up at 4:20 but didn’t make it into the gym today. While I slept better last night, it was still not great. I’d planned to go to the gym after work, but when our first softball practice was […]
I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. I was very comfortable and wanted to sleep in some. I guess I did sleep in a little bit. I think I finally got up around 8:30 AM. Kelly and I had breakfast and finished up some laundry, and then we headed out to do […]
Got to sleep in a little this morning because I was at Kelly’s last night, and she lives so close to work that we can leave much later. That’s always nice. I actually slept really well last night. It was warm, but not hot, and with the storms coming in, there was a nice breeze […]
Days that I work from home always seem longer than days that I’m in the office. I think it’s the lack of a commute. I get started early, don’t have to commute in, don’t have to commute home, and I usually work later. And to top it off, I had 4 hours of phone meetings […]
Work went by quickly today, and I was kept fairly busy throughout the day. In fact, I didn’t get out of the office until almost 5 PM. I had a 6 PM meeting so once I left, I couldn’t dawdle. While waiting to change trains at Mt. Vernon Square, a man came up to me […]
Quoted here, from my diary, without comment: Saturday, May 1, 1998 — I think that I decided that I want to be an astronaut today. I know that sounds odd, especially since I’m already 26 years old and “grown up”. But I was browsing some of NASA’s web today and found their astronaut candidate program […]
Kelly and I got back to Washington early this morning, around 1 AM. It was raining when I left or L.A. and it was raining when I returned. I stayed at Kelly’s last night and got home this morning. I worked from home today because (a) I got in so late last night and (b) […]
I had mentioned the incoherent entries in my diary for 9/11/01 earlier today. Now that I am home and have the books in front of me, here are some examples (even the handwriting is worse than usual): September 11 — The world changed today when four commercial airliners were hijacked–2 crashed into the towers of […]
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
I was thinking that this is my first trip to Europe and that I can remember, when I was younger, wondering when I would end up getting there. So I decided to look back through my diaries and see what I was doing 10 years ago today, July 2, 1997. I don’t think Europe was […]
Today is my 527th consecutive day of blogging without having missed a single day (although I have occasionally had to go back and fill in the entries for a particular day because I was too busy to write them on that day).
