Drained Musings

Being drained sucks, doesn't it? I'm not talking about being drained as a result of being proactive... that kind of drained is fine; it usually means you've accomplished or are accomplishing something. I'm talking about the other kind of drained... the kind that's the result of being reactive (usually to other people). THAT kind sucks. And the people who cause that kind of, er, drainage suck.

It's kinda ironic, too (or hypocritical, depending on how you look at it)... a buddy of mine, who after an extremely prolific November, suddenly seemed to "dry up" as far as creativity goes. I've been giving him a hard time about it, but to no avail. And now, I'm the one who's all blah. I can't think of a single thing to write, other than these meandering musings that mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. Then again, does anything I write mean anything in the grand scheme of things? Hmm... must consult Magic 8-ball.

Anyway... enough of that.

So, the San Diego Chargers clinched the #2 seed in the AFC after an ass-whooping they handed to the Tennessee Titans (42-17... ouch!). I actually would have written about this sooner, but I was DRAINED! Still drained, really, but...

Go Chargers!

I am fighting a nicotine addiction with every ounce of willpower that I have. In other words: I'm losing. I've also come to the realization that even though I don't like smoking, I don't like not smoking either. What the Hell am I supposed to do with an attitude like that?

You've probably noticed (especially if you're one of the few who will bother to read this far) that I'm messing with a nav-bar (and that it keeps disappearing and reappearing). I have no idea what I really want to do with it, but messing with it is forcing me to learn CSS. And, in this day and age, CSS isn't a bad thing to learn. What relevance that has towards anything you might be interested in is beyond me, but I felt like mentioning it. And if anyone has any advice or ideas concerning implementation and/or other features, feel free to drop me a line.

Anybody know any good jokes? I haven't heard any good jokes in a while. 

And that's all I really feel like writing at the moment. I'm lame, I know.


  1. Hang in there, Jeff. There is much drained lameness all around, but in a few days we will have New Year's Eve coincide with a full moon --a blue moon, in fact, ie, the second full moon in one calendar month. That has to mean something good, right? Right? Right? Wish I knew ...

  2. Your musings are always interesting...whether you feel creative or not! Go Pats! (hahaha)

  3. the muse comes and goes...a dangerous mistress that slips in when you least expect it. she will be back, sh'e just with another right now.

    steelers won yesterday! beating the ravens pretty much highlighted that season.

    keep fighting the nic habit...been does not get easier...

  4. Funny how inspiration is so random.

    The magic 8-ball says "yes", btw.

  5. Hey - Wanted to let you know: Dave asked Santa for a Sproles jersey. He loves it. Muse on that.

  6. Good luck with quitting.
    You want jokes? How about some Bill Hicks

  7. He he, don't we all run out of things to write sometimes? And yet there's just always something to say :)

    CSS huh? Well start with the simple stuff to get the concepts, then add creativity...

  8. good luck quitting...

    saw that Chargers/Titans game; man, Tennessee just sucked up, what happened--they didn't even try...and watching Indy stick their heads between their knees last night wasn't very pretty either. i've got the duldrums; look out here comes January!

  9. It's just the post festive lull. Although I've had it since June! You need a good woman, or a bad woman . . ..aren't they behind every man . . women that it . . although you'd probably prefer one in front or beside. CSS isn't a bad craft to learn. There's money in web design you know . . Can't comment on Football (Why they call it that I don't know because the foot rarely has contact with the ball! And what's with your footballers getting all padded up and wearing helmuts . .wusses!) Oops, just commented on Football.

  10. you’re still a good read

    and draining people suck
    most literally as well as figuratively

    and yeah, my giants suck
    what else is new...

  11. I want to see you beat this! C'mon, Jeff. I know you can. Betting on it.
