Monday Mumblings Takes A Bowling Lesson
I took a chunk of Friday afternoon off to join my mother at the Lunch 'N' Bowl coaching session last Friday. We both got a lot of good out of it. So what's a bowler with a 175 or so average doing getting coaching? Well, I can always learn more.

But boy, was I aching afterward. We

In which I bite Karma back
Today was ... interesting. After last week's fall at the foul line, I went to my morning league half expecting all sorts of trouble, and was not disappointed. My first two games were awful. I had four splits in the second game alone. And every time I went th

In Which Julie Manages to NOT Talk About ... You Know
Yes, there are other things going on in my life. Still working on a web site. Every time I think I'm at the end, another thing crops up. Ah, well. Such is the way those things go.

I finished Leviathan. It's a rollicking good YA Steampunk adventure.

And today was bowling day. Ap

Are we having fun, yet?

I don't think I am.

My laptop computer seems to be going a bit wonky. I knew I should have bit the bullet and picked up one of those $500 laptops at Fry's a couple of weeks ago. Perhaps some maintenance will help. I know there's an 80 GB drive in there, and the system thinks it's

Lucky Seven!

I'm not big on lucky numbers, really. I'm told seven is supposed to be lucky. This morning I checked my wallet before I left for bowling and found seven dollars. It was just enough to cover my initial expenses for the morning.

Today was sweeper day in my morning bowling league, and I alwa

I ache, therefore I am!
I am dog tired, and the day is only half over. I bowled six games this morning. Yes, SIX games. This is the last day of regular bowling for the summer season. (Next week is payout and a sweeper, which is bowling for fun - and a few bucks.) Wonder of wonders, our team was three games out of first pla

As the philosopher Jagger said...
You can't always get what you want.

But sometimes you get what you need.

Bowling was interesting this morning. Struggled the first game and then ended up with a 197 - just one pin under my average. Next game I strung the first five frames (strikes) and then had an open. Ended up with a 2

Sigh
I know I signed up for the Round Robin list this week and my comment apparently got lost in the ether. Or eaten by Internet faeries. Or something.

Oh, well.

Bowling was not too good today. The new scoring machines are in, and they are very nice. This morning the lanes were completely blo

Some days I wonder why I bother
Bowling did not go well this morning. One game was a whopping 50 pins under my average.

Honestly, it was just one of those mornings. We all struggled to find a line. A bad series is a disappointments, but I have to remind myself why I do this: To get out of the house, talk with other adults,

If you thought the peanuts were creepy...
I was going to title this If you thought my nuts were creepy... but that's just so wrong.

You can blame it on two more entries to the Disturbing Food Mascots section. I'm still working out some of the navigatio
