I can not believe how long this is taking me. My usual excuse is being so busy at work, which means A) no time for entries at work and B) no energy left for entries at home. So, C) this really ne...


Oh how I wish I could be concise and succinct and all those brief and non-wordy things that I am not. Also, while I'm wishing, I wish I would not drag entries out so. But obviously I will never c...


The first entry is one back, ages ago; in typical Edna fashion I'm dilly-dallying around about it. I got as far as our arrival and check-in to the lovely (well, visually lovely) Flat Iron Hotel. ...

wicked weekend in shiny things

SO. Weekend before last I got to go to New York with my cousins. Some long-time Open Diary readers will remember Cousin E, who used to write over there. Cousin E is three years older than I am...


Wow, I have been absent from PB for ages. As I predicted, work went from horrifically boring to overwhelmingly overwhelming in about a ten second time span a few weeks ago, and it did not let up...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J_AUBT-PAo Fortunately for my office mates, I just play quietly online when I'm bored, instead of shooting holes in the walls. I'm trying to enjoy this lack of...


Lately my job is either overwhelmingly busy or overwhelmingly boring-- there doesn't seem to be a middle ground. Today is an Overwhelmingly Boring day. It's suspiciously quiet, and I'm all caught...


Current location My office. It is quiet. It is peaceful. It is weird. The phone is not ringing. I am not getting any emails. Did some catastrophic event occur, wiping out mankind, and nobody told...


It's that time again. Graduation application time. In which we send out emails to approximately 394,032 students who have applied to graduate in May letting them know they are missing all manner ...


I've gotten into a very bad habit of wearing the same clothes to work all the time. Mostly because I've managed to gain like ten pounds so NOTHING FITS, dammit, and I'm certainly not going to go ...


Especially today. It was quite temperate when I left for work this morning -- like nearly 50! But it was pouring rain. POURING. At 10:30 I had to hike across campus for a meeting. The temperature...


We ended up with about 10 inches of snow, which wasn't nearly as much as a lot of people got. We also had just plain old snow, and not the nasty snow-rain-sleet-snow-ice-snow combo that was going...


SO. I got up this morning when my alarm went off, all bleary and tired because I went to bed too late last night because OOOHHH!!! BLIZZARD COMING!!!! ....and there wasn't a flake of snow to be s...

hatch battening in shiny things

Word on the street is we're getting a massive snowstorm tomorrow. Well, word not so much on the street as word on the interwebs. There is much speculating and debating and estimating going on, b...


Just checked the current forecast from our Not-A-Meteorologist Ray. His weather icon, which generally sports a little cartoon of the sun, or a cloud, or a cloud with a lightening bolt through it,...


Taking a break from the never-ending "senior audits", which is one of those things I'm always glad to start doing each semester because by now I've gotten bored and it's something different... th...


I've gotten very slack about writing on OD in the past few years. Which honestly was something I kind of appreciated while saving my eighty gazillion entries to Evernote-- the last couple of year...


I am tired of winter. I am SO SO SO tired of winter. We're currently experiencing our second Polar Blast of the month, and right now it's 14 degrees (F). Last night it was down to four. Four abov...


Via Simple Minds, and created by james ensor; just the thing for a loooong dullish afternoon when I should be doing a lot of other things but don't want to. 1. Will you agree to let a lover use...


....when we were strolling lovely historic streets in warmer climes. I feel a little bad bitching about the weather since it is MUCH worse in those frozen wastelands up north ( - 22 in Minnesota?...


I started to not even bother since I've done shockingly little journal-writing this past year... but I hate to break my tradition. Of making a New Year's entry out of the beginning bit of each mo...


FINALLY. I think it took me 4 1/2 months to do my travelogue for our First England Trip, and I thought that was ridiculous and swore to do it faster this time. And this time it's taken me SIX mon...


Or, as we kept saying, the, "sniff..sniff...last day...WAAAHHHH!!!!" How is it possible for time to go so fast?? None of us was ready for it to be The Last Day. But, sadly, there The Last Day w...


Since I've not been really doing day-to-day entries to document our countryside stay, and instead have been doing hunks of things - like an entry for Marlborough and an entry (or two) for Bath an...


Have I said how much I loved Avebury? I really loved Avebury. I could live here. Amongst the stones. And sheep. This sheep had an itch. Impressive trees: West Kennet ...
