Fucking NY Jets… I’m glad I didn’t waste my time and money watching the Jets blow a 14-3 lead at halftime to lose 21-17 to the Cleveland Browns; the same Browns who hadn’t won a game since 2016.

In happier news, I’m up at 5:30am to watch a sport for which I have no rooting interest (Australian Rugby) and it’s EAV Strut weekend so that’s where you’ll find me tomorrow.

Walked to my friend Betsy’s house last night where I ate my only meatless meal of the day, Scratchy Husband Pasta. You will have to read the article written about it to understand the name. With me I carried a bundle of asparagus for roasting, and a bottle of white wine for drinking. It was a tasty meal, leaving me with two words — asparagus pee!

Starting my day at Waffle House QT before the auto dealer has a look at the M6’s brakes and the tire I dinged.

I may not be heading to work afterward depending on how I feel. I’m feeling a bit rundown this morning.

My Jimmie’s Chicken Shack show on Friday night has been canceled so I need to go back to Masquerade by then to get my refund.

Bit of walking yesterday after a long day of taking care of many things.

Here’s a photo of the mill ruins in Sweetwater Creek State Park taken Saturday to make up for a lack of content.

(about as big as I can make this before it starts to pixelate due to all of my editing)

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 211.0 pounds (+0.8 from last week’s weigh-in). I was incorrectly optimistic about today’s weigh-in. Poop.

Mixed bag weekend:
– had a lot of fun hanging with friends — hiking on Saturday, hashing yesterday.
– most sports teams let me down, fortunately this has no real impact on my life; UF won, Werder Bremen gave up a goal in extra time to draw, and the Jets lost to the goddamn Dolphins.
– M6 will have to in for inspection and possibly maintenance for its brakes and the tire that I dinged a couple weeks ago. In typical fashion the TPMS came on again yesterday, and when I stopped at Kroger to check and fill any low tires their air machine was out of order. Dangen!

The weekend wore me out, I fell asleep watching football around 8:45pm.

Friday? Huh.

Up early with a pot of coffee to watch Australian Rugby playoff game. Yay Sportsball!

Trying to overcome my physical setbacks.

Made a “chili” last night which satisfied me as much as Wednesday night’s Hungry Man dinner; I’ll wind up using to top spaghetti or combining with rice in a burrito.

Weekend looks promising – day of hiking at Sweetwater Creek State Park tomorrow; hashing (essentially hiking for me) way up north in Marietta on Sunday.

Went over to my friend Betsy’s house last night to watch the movie “The Big Short” (this was her idea). Her internet has been out all week, so I rented and then downloaded the movie to my iPad so I could play it on her tv. Along with the movie I brought over two Hungry Man dinners (beer battered “chicken” with mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and a brownie), a bag of salad mix, corn for popping, and some Twizzlers. Oh, and a bottle of white wine. All of this was shoved into a backpack as I decided to ride my bicycle to her house.

Given the movie was about the 2007 financial crisis we agreed to eat a throwback dinner on the cheap, hence the Hungry Man dinners. I hadn’t eaten one in decades, and probably won’t eat another again.

How cool is it to be in a bar watching USA Soccer and have Atlanta United superstar Josef Martinez walk in? I don’t know because I left about three minutes before this happened at RiRa last night. My friend Shelby sent me photographic proof. DANGEN!

I certainly didn’t expect to see the Jets win last night, especially after the very first pass attempt of theirs was intercepted and returned for a touchdown.

Geez, so thrown by a Jets’ win that I forgot to mention my weekly weighing.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 210.2 pounds (+0.4 from last week’s weigh-in)

Raise your hand if your college football team lost to a team to whom they had not lost since you were in college?

For me that’ll be 31 years.



May be another long season for Gators fans…
