Even though I removed it from my calendar months ago it feels weird to be skipping Busted’s “Bring Your Own Boat” camping weekend at Red Top Mountain this year. I have looked forward to this outing for the past three years and even went as far as to rent the pioneer campground last year when Busted decided to go to Prague for the hash. I am only missing because of the way my life has changed, and that fucking sucks for me.

Went to Aldi yesterday looking for the vegetarian chicken and waffles item they had in their weekly flyer. Unfortunately it was nowhere to be found in the Decatur store.

Funny (to me) story: last night I listened to an interview with Kevin Bacon. The interview talked about his movie They/Them. This is the movie which was being filmed at Hard Labor State Park when I spent a night over there last October. It’s a horror movie, so I will never watch it.

I solved today’s Wordle in five attempts; my starter today was FLAKE. Should have had in three, but I talked myself out of guessing the proper word.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 186.8 pounds (+0.2 from last week’s weigh-in); exercise and portion control return today.

Any plan to go on a long bike ride today went out the window when I arrived home last night at 11:15pm. It was a long day of hashing, drinking, and having fun.

It was a good way to end my birthday month and put my hashing days to rest for awhile.

It may be odd to read that an unemployed person is glad to have a morning with nothing to do except relax, and eat breakfast. I have decided to give myself a day off from the rat race that I live these days.

Hopefully doing my final reccy for Sunday’s Black Sheep trail today.

On a positive note, my Duolingo streak has now reached two hundred days, kept alive with a couple of mulligans for various reasons.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 186.6 pounds (+0.8 since last week’s weigh-in); ugh. Must start working toward 180, not away from it, but injured ankle won’t help with this…

Happy Belated Birthday to David. Welcome to the 57th Fighter Group.

Thanks to all who celebrated my birthday on Friday. Lunch at The Corn House with Barb, Steve/Davey, Kristina/Ramaho, and Joe/Slim, followed by a trip to Schoolhouse Brewing with everyone except Barb, who had to return to work. I then had one more beer at Steady Hand Brewing before returning home to spend the evening alone where I made dinner and watched Glengarry Glen Ross.

Yesterday after a hike, during which I turned my left ankle (a-gain!) even though I was wearing my hiking boots, I visited Red’s Beer Garden and cashed in all of my rewards.

Unfortunately I am still feeling sad and angry, and keep looking for days during which I don’t feel these feelings.

As I type and schedule this post on Sunday afternoon I am hoping that my ankle doesn’t keep me from another cycling folly in north Georgia today. So, I probably won’t be commenting until later this afternoon. I am really looking forward to this folly and never expected to hurt myself yesterday.

I hope everything is going well in your world.

This will be my only “real” post of the week. I am going to be busy, and therefore silent with the exception of Wordle updates for the remainder of the week.
