So, after using my wastebasket for a vomit container… I removed my briefcase from the tiny “couchlette” in my office, used my trench coat like a pillow, and took a 30 minute nap. Only 30 minutes...


Last night, I went home and had a very light super. Poured myself a drink and started playing video games. Apparently, the strength of the drink compared to the lightness of the super was a ter...


(Disturbed Song from this morning’s commute). OH. MY. G! The morning commute seriously felt SO LONG! Seriously. I hate mornings. I left my apartment at 7:11 a.m. I got into my office at 7:58...


Last night, I was tossing and turning something awful. I dreamt that I was working for a Private Firm in Waterloo and the power went out. While the power was out, my glasses were knocked off my ...


(Meant to publish last night) This is a public entry from a public servant. This is the kind of thing that would prevent me from getting a Federal Appointment in the future. But the difference ...


Note to self.... build a proper time line of River Song’s life from her perspective. I know it has been done before, truly, but I’ve yet to see a version I genuinely like.


Last night my dreams were so incredibly mundane that when I woke up, I had to check to make sure they were dreams. (1) In one dream, I was cleaning my ears with a new tool that was able to get ou...


There is about an hour left of work today and I am trying to remind myself that days like today are good and important as offsets to days like Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. I shouldn’t be upse...

Night in Working Through the Maze 2018

Tonight’s “drunken” rant… Wife looked at me today and said “The fat has eaten my husband. Your face is too round, your belly too big… I don’t even recognize you anymore. You have become much to...


FOUND IT! Ladies and Gentleman… the following entry was written while extremely inebriated. It is VERY NSFW for content purposes. You’ve been warned. Enjoy drunken ramblings ala me. To the ext...


As should probably be expected… I’ve pushed myself very hard the last two days at the job and my body is very upset. But I am being forceful and demanding we finish tough. We have today and tom...


The Vena Cava and the Aorta..... Amoxicilin and Clavulanic Acid… A hypodermic needle and a latex tourniquet… Diverticulitis and a barium enima… The Tibia, The Fibula The left and right ventricle!...


Exhausting day. Just what I needed after my long ass Juvenile Court day yesterday. Today was all about (1) Hearings for Trials and Setting Up Jury Trials and Prosecuting Things Too Serious For ...


For some, if you inspire them? If you make them feel sexy, capable, intelligent, worthy.... they will be. Not true for everyone but certainly true for me. If you make me feel desirable… I’ll ha...


As an attorney and denizen of the internet, I will be so glad when this entire Kavanaugh thing is behind us. As an American and a Prosecutor, I worry that no matter what happens regarding Judge K...

MORNING in Working Through the Maze 2018

So.... last night.... Left from work straight to DM… a roughly 95 minute drive. Spent time with Wife, saw a good movie, drove to MTown… a roughly 74 minute drive. Drank a little, played video g...


Radon report came in on the new house. Average Radon reading is 1.3, levels higher than 4 are concerning. Our radon report came back as 14!! Okay… some serious shit needs to be taken care of befo...


Another one written in minutes. HA to me, though. I am busy and I’m looking at a fucking MOUNTAIN of shit coming at me… but today was a somewhat slow day. Wife said inspections went really well....

Article in Working Through the Maze 2018

So… this is from a Fashion website so take that with a grain of salt but some things from an article on “Couples Therapists Reveal the Biggest Deal Breakers Couples Ignore” https://www.fashionbea...


As was proved again this evening… hugging my wife is awesome. Also, when/if she says “I love you” in a way where I know she means it… awesome. The problem is she says it that way so very rarely...

Briefly in Working Through the Maze 2018

Maybe my “stop writing” will just become really small quick entries instead of what I’d written before. If you or someone you know uses methamphetamine; please seek help. I just had to file beca...


Shit. So… things are spiraling out of control. Like… this county, like most counties in Iowa, only has 1 Trial Date per month. AT MOST that means we can fit 24 trials per year if we PUSH REALLY...


So my first entry today was about house hunting and relationships and life… dense. My second entry today was about how I could be a badass if I was fictional… because people suck and IRL they are...


One thing that is unfortunate about the difference between REAL LIFE Law and TV/CINEMA Law is that we don’t get to be badass even if the situation calls for it and we have the words for it. Indiv...


When I’m not feeling well, things become… weirder. Even without medication. And yeah, I’ve not taken any medication for any symptoms. My typing gets worse, for one. Typically, I’m a rapid pace...
