Lord, I’m tired.
I woke up this morning feeling dazed and weak. I did the math and realized I hadn’t eaten in 20 hours. I’ve been doing that recently.
I need to import an assload of data from old TopSpeed (TPS) database tables into MySQL. I don’t have access to the original app, just the database tables. I’m on a Mac, but can use Unix tools and Windows as last resort. Anybody know an easy way to do this? It’s time-dependent.
You know what’s awesome? Finding the right key to play David Bowie’s “Heroes” in…and then standing in your living room with an unplugged electric guitar at eight in the morning, pretending you’re playing the Reading Festival or Lollapalooza or something like that, shrieking “And we can be HEROOOOOES if just for one day!” at full […]
In the parking lot of this apartment complex, directly below the balcony where I go to smoke, there’s a Best Buy delivery truck with California plates. It has a dealership license plate frame. On top of the frame, in all caps, is the name TODEY. On the bottom, in title case, it reads “Not Toady, […]
My phone’s turned off again — I thought I’d be starting a new job by now, but I haven’t, so I can’t pay the bill until some of my clients settle up. If you need me, email me. Phone’s back on. Never mind.

And on my way to the Coffee Bean (which isn’t actually open for another hour, but the manager’s letting me sit out front until they do open), the following songs on my iPod: The National, “Fake Empire“ Coldplay, “Don’t Panic“ The Pogues, “A Rainy Night In Soho“ U2, “A Sort Of Homecoming“ I felt much […]
The AC’s gone out where I am. I can’t get it to come on. If you’ve ever been to Vegas, you’ll understand my horror. The high today, according to my Google Weather widget thingy, is 108º. That’s 42º Celsius, by the way. It feels like an oven in here. I’m going to take a cold […]
For various reasons, I’m staying somewhere right now where I don’t have Internet access, barring the occasional access to some neighbor’s wifi. I’m at the Coffee Bean during the day, though, so I’m getting online. Just don’t expect to get in touch with me via e-mail at night and expect the usual quick response. I’m […]
