Meow is the time, supervillains, to strike.

Yesterday i felt fine when i came into work. Then i had some coffee. Then it went downhill from there.

I'm pretty sure someone slipped me a kryptonite mickey.

By lunchtime i was feeling pretty punked, so i skipped my Centennial Park workout/patrol and just chilled. i felt alittle guilty, but not enough to fight the lazy. By 5pm i was past "Do i feel weird?" and well into "This is not good." i held out 'til 8pm quittin' time and then headed home. On the ride home i was imagining what I'd tell the police if my general wooziness turned into straying-over-the-line. Kept my focus, made it home fine, skipped dinner, took a shower, went to bed. Earliest bedtime in Years.

i woke up around 11 though, sHiVeRiNg uncontrollably. Not cool. i put on some sweatpants and a sweatshirt, but still it took about 5 minutes for me to warm up and for the shakes to pass. The good news is that i slept fine most of the night. Weird news is that my left ankle throbbed in pain a few times and woke me up. Weird. What was that all about?

Waking up and getting outta bed was no more difficult than i expected. Made it to work fine. Settled in.

i don't know how today's going to go, but i feel as weak as a kitten.

In Your Dreams

i had a dream that that the head of cybersecurity at my dayjob and i were arguing about whether or not Neneh Cherry was hot.

Now... I've neVer had a disagreement with the guy (I've never even seen him froWn). And i haven't even thought about Neneh Cherry this millennium, but... there they both were. In my dream. I've never dreamed of either of them before and don't expect i ever shall again, but...

What does it MEAN?

This Is the NEW "Business Casual"

"I'm bringing it back."

That's what i said when they asked me why I'm wearing a tie.

"You and your polo shirts bore me to death. It's time for something new around here. I'm bringing The Tie back."

Then they asked me why I'm wearing jeans.

"They're more comfortable than slacks or suitpants or whatever."

I'm bringing it back, but I'm bringing it back MY WAY.

I'm rocking it interrobang-style.

I'm wearing a tie AND I'm wearing jeans.

The sartorial equivalent of a mullet.

Yeah. You heard me. I said it.

"Business up top,
party down below."

The Road Warrior

Every morning on my commute to work i spend the whole drive watching the clock and making mental calculations. Depending on how many times i hit the snooze button and how bad traffic is, the drive has varying degrees of tension...

7:29 and I'm off. It's only 25 minutes, so i should be alittle early.
7:35 and I haven't gotten to the highway yet? I'm gonna be late.
7:47? Really? That was quick. I gained time and I'm gonna be early.
7:54! Stupid downtown traffic! I'm gonna be late!

Today though was a different story.
