Andrew vs The Demons: Week 1 Wrap Up

So how did Thursday end? It ended well. I'll spare you the video game analogies, this time. I received an unexpected gift. I leant a hand to someone in need. The rain stopped and the sun came out. There may have been a rainbow! I went to an event that in the past would have been far far outside my comfort zone but now somehow is within my comfort zone.

Friday I wore a shirt requiring cufflinks. You can't stop a man with cufflinks, you just can't.

Saturday was a day free from doubt. It might have been the Rabbi; it might have been the hamburgers. I suspect it had a lot to do with those who look a lot like me.

Sunday morning involved bacon and the AM In The A.M. playlist on Songza. I was in a good mood. I went for a walk around the neighbourhood and even though i was accosted in the street it didn't bother me. The day was rounded out by a nice chat over a couple of pints and that leads us to today. You will nee to wait until Wednesday or Thursday to hear about today.

Be well.

Andrew vs The Demons: Week 1 Wrap Up (Not So Much)

I will tell you the tale of how the week ended but I will do it tomorrow. It's too late tonight and I am too tired. I am tired from being creative, from helping my neighbour, and from spending time with a friend. Take that, Demon!

Andrew vs The Demons: Week 1 Halftime

First let me say I'm not sure exactly how these battle reports will take shape. At first I thought of it like a boxing match but observers write about those. Next I considered thinking of it like a video game or something. We'll see.

Our Intrepid Hero (like Spaceman Spiff!) has made it to lunchtime on Thursday. How's the battle so far?

The Demons took Monday and ran with it. Andrew retaliated on Tuesday aided by the coffee fuelled monkey on his back. Wednesday might have ended in a draw had it not been for an unexpected mood power up. The absurdity of Wednesday's weather also helped. It fuelled Andrew's laughter and kept The Demons at bay like a blover blowing away fog and balloon zombies. Thursday morning - despite coffee, much goodwill from others, and more absurd weather - The Demons kept Andrew on his heels.

How did Thursday turn out? Who will win the week? Stay tuned there's more after the break!

A 52 Week Battle

The keen observers amongst you will have noticed that my recent posts haven't actually been blog posts. This isn't just a post modern exercise. I've been having a struggle. I've decided that the small circle with whom I share things needs to expand. I'm going to fight Depression. I'm going to win. I'm going to keep score.

I'm not sure yet how these posts will take form but I'll at least post a weekly "score."
Andrew vs The Demons. So far this week (if the week starts on Monday) we're tied. I figure Depression is a liar and doesn't fight fair. So why should I fight fair ? I'm gonna call that bastard out!

Stay tuned. Stay healthy.
