Spent a lot of money, by my standards, for dinner last night at a restaurant called Nowack’s in Morningside. It was a birthday celebration for one of my drinking buddies, so I had no choice in the restaurant selection. I suppose I could have balked at going when I saw the prices and pretentiousness (no split checks, parties of five or more are automatically charged a 23% tip), but I didn’t want to be a party pooper. And to make matters worse the sides of French fries and Brussels sprouts we ordered were so salty that they were nearly inedible.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 197.0 pounds. Dangen. And I am trying to return to a career which is notoriously sedentary? Time to start reducing the calorie intake again.

I received a letter in the mail which had my surname misspelled. While this is far from an uncommon occurrence for my Germanic last name, this letter was from one of the few places I expect to know how to spell it properly — Goethe Zentrum Atlanta.

Were I still eating meat often I’d be more bummed about hearing that Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand closed its original location on Moreland Avenue. Delia’s stood next to the Batteries Plus shop that also closed not long ago, and my speculation that the land on that corner had been sold was correct. What will be built there? More overpriced housing? One can only hope…

My blueberry waffle experiment may have been a bust, but the butternut squash waffles I made yesterday were somewhat incredible.

Isn’t it great that you don’t even have to win your conference in order to have a chance to win the National Championship? #snark Count me out.

I could use a few victories today to turn my mood around. Feeling bombarded from every direction at the moment.

As the rain continues to fall I am glad that I spent nearly the entirety of yesterday puttering around WLF. There are still one or two tasks I wish I had completed yesterday, but I am proud of what I accomplished.

It’s the last day of November, we are headed into the final stretch of 2022!

Back ITP, for the moment, where I will only allow my metaphorical plate to be filled. Unfortunately my metaphorical plate is so filled that it runneth over.

No weigh-in today. The mirror tells me that I have gained weight, but today I don’t need to know just how much weight that I have gained.

“Cyber Monday” is such an antiquated concept…

I’m on the road, heading home.

It was a great weekend of eating, drinking, friendship, and watching Alaska Daily. For that last one I will have to wait for new episodes to be released starting the end of February.

My only “Black Friday” purchase is due to arrive today. I’ve come to the conclusion that I really don’t need much more stuff these days.

Also, weight correction starts today. I don’t need a scale to tell me I’ve packed on pounds, the mirror has done a good job of that.
