  • Getting a New Floor and Trying to Calm the Fuck Down

    For the last few weeks I’ve been getting rid of the old carpet in our living room and scraping the glue residue off the floor (a hellish task). As I’m close to finishing, I bought some tools and material yesterday – accompanied by my son, having a good time – and I hope I’ll be […]

  • A Lump of Meat Obstructs Faucal Bandwidth

    Anna has been complaining about my snoring for some time now. Especially in the last few weeks. At the beginning of the year I had a phase during which I did regular exercising at home, mostly bodyweight stuff like incline rows and pushups, squats and L-sits. Sometimes I would do some dumbbell shoulder presses in […]

  • Obsessing Over Obsessions

    Haven’t been here in a while. Updated WordPress and watched the suggested video describing all the updates. WordPress apparently now supports retina image files and has a native REST-API. That’s all well, but it makes no difference to me. It won’t make my life more interesting, and it certainly won’t make me a better writer. […]

  • On Being a Grownup

    Three days ago I took Anna and my son to the hospital because he breathed heavily and didn’t drink anymore. He’s doing fine now but the doctors wanted her and my son to stay at the hospital for monitoring, and I’ve been alone at home since then. Since then, I have not showered, I have […]

  • Focus

    I’m a programmer. Often when I have to execute a task that takes longer than ten seconds, I lack the patience to wait it out and instead go check out my email or Facebook or Reddit or some other stupid time suck. (Email is fine in my case actually. I don’t know why I’m bashing […]

  • Writing again

    I’m writing again. I don’t know what about. I don’t know why. I don’t know who. But I’m writing again.

  • Caulk

    I’ve been feeling sad a lot more often lately. I’ve been feeling joyful more often lately, too. Overall I am more calm than I used to be. It makes no sense. It’s been a long time since I made music with another person. It must have easily been over a year. Tomorrow I am meeting […]

  • Jumping Lalannes

    Yesterday I got picked up by a friend after I had come home from work. We went to a bar and I had a few cigarettes and a couple of beers. Before we met I was afraid I would be too tired to talk and just be a drag. But I talked a lot and […]

  • Motherloving’s

    I had a really hard time getting out of bed today. I fell asleep at around 10:30 pm and my alarm goes off at 6:00 am, so I probably got a reasonable amount of sleep. Not sure what’s up with that. Because I missed my train yesterday I didn’t come home before 7:45 pm or […]

  • Beige, Brown, Whatever

    I spent the night at Anna’s, so I didn’t get up till around 8:30 am. It was very nice. One of my co-workers had her 30th birthday today, so we had some cake. Then we had some ice-cream. Then we had some falafel with various dips. I had a pretty substantial sugar crash, and it […]
