Lord, I’m Tired …


… DOG tired.  Speaking of dogs, mine are barkin’.  Big time.

My legs hurt too.  Hear that, Stranger?  You’re not alone.  I didn’t do it with an elliptical machine, but the urban terrain of the Big City has been just as effective.  For someone that hasn’t consistently done any sort of exercise for something like 20 years, I can’t believe this is only day two.

It went well again today.  I have more assignments to complete, but need some help from the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to complete them.  I hope I prove competence pretty soon — at least to myself.  I’m always a nervous little tick, but right now I’m downright jumpy.

I’m starting to panic about writing, too.  I have no time.  When I get home I have precious few hours to be with the kids, my wife and check email and such before it’s back to bed to go comatose for tomorrow’s strut from train station to office.  Who the hell knew half a frickin’ mile could be so friggin’ far??

Well … I’ll do my best.  I’m thinking about dropping a few dimes on that Neo word processing thing.  Any thoughts on that bad boy?  I have time on the train to do what I want: read (which I’ll be doing with some text books to help my skill set), write (when I can stay awake), stare at other trainglodytes (which I do a LOT of) … whatever.  Anyone seen it?  Used it?  It runs on AA batteries, which is cool.  No recharging issues.  But I’m scared of making a bad decision.  Does anyone know anything about that doo-hickey?  I’ve seen it in Writer’s Digest, if you’re curious, and their website is here.  Any input you have is desperately sought and dearly appreciated.

God bless, and good night, y’all.  Patience, Raga … I have the next part of Witch Hunt laid out, I just can’t find time to write it.

  1. My poor friend! I hate to walk. Just keep your head up and get some Epsom salts to soak your feet in. I would also invest in some Dr. Scholl’s shoe inserts. They might help some.

    As far as Witch Hunt I’ll wait for as long as you need. Great writing sometimes is like great wine, it takes time to get it right. You know I’m not goin’ anywhere. You’re stuck with me. Besides this gives me time to send you subliminal messages about Dillon. πŸ˜‰

    By the way I took your advice and peaked out of my shell and left a message on Bryce’s site. πŸ™‚

    This might not be possible but is there a way I can make the words bigger on the web page? I’m slowly going blind and I’m having a hard time reading. Sorry to be a complainer. If not it’s okay, I’ll just move closer to the screen. πŸ™‚

  2. Hey, hon, you’re gonna drop poundage like *that*! What a silver lining to taking the train. The Neo thingy, I think they are pretty good, but I can’t remember where I got that idea. It seems some organization was using them, like Nanowrimo loaning them out, or a school buying some, but I have no references. I think that would be a great investment, though. Then you’d be able to satiate your pack of salivating readers. Ian said something about a phone that he could write on, I’ll ask him what that was.

    Raga, in case no one’s answered your question yet, hold CTRL and hit the =/+ button, that should make the text bigger. And you can stop by my blog anytime. πŸ™‚

    (Sorry I hijacked your blog, Knyt. ttyl)

  3. Ah yes! The old SME participation game. If it weren’t for elusive SME’s Tech Writing wouldn’t be a job at all.

    Hang in there.

  4. Raga — Aw, thanks sweetie. I’m so happy you found me. I don’t know what life would be like without you always in my corner waiting for whatever falls off my fingertips. You rock right out loud, hon. πŸ™‚

    Hold the CTRL key down and press the + button. On most browsers that’ll do the trick. But, SOUND OFF if you hate my theme. I’m not married to it and can find another one if it’ll help everyone. Sherri said she’s okay if I use the one she’s using, but it’s not very DarcKnyt-y. πŸ™‚ Just say the word and the theme’s gone.

    I saw your comment on Bryce’s blog, too. He loves hearing from readers, even if he doesn’t respond. He’ll be glad you peaked. πŸ™‚

    Sherri — Never apologize for helping any of my Blogulars, babe. You’re always welcome here with whatever you’ve got to say; you know that. πŸ™‚ You’re part of the heart, love. Share yours at will. We love you, and thanks for helping Raga. πŸ™‚

    (Raga — you should check out Sherri’s blog when you can. You’ll like it.)

    Ian — I’m all about doing that, but last time didn’t turn up too much. I”ll try again soon and see what it comes up with. Thanks!

    Dwight — Thanks for the support and understanding, m’man. I’ll hang in there — so far it’s been a lot of fun. I don’t know if I’m doing it right, but it’s fun. Thank you for stopping by and sounding off, bud!

    God bless you all, and thank you for your support and love. We adore you all.

Hey, what's up? Tell me whatcha think!
