I admit that I am lazy and that unless something monumental changes in my life I will probably never see the inside of a gym or run alone again. I contemplated riding my bike last night but the threat of rain nixed that idea. Additionally an early onset of “holy crap I am hungry” led me to walk (hey, that’s exercise right?) up to La Casita Cantina and eat an incredibly good, albeit unhealthy, meal sans alcohol (mostly because they have lost their liquor license).
Somehow I Don’t This Will Make It Into A Cingular Commercial
You know how everyone is touting “faster” networks? Check out the text message I received yesterday
Daylight Savings Time begins 3/11. Your device needs to be updated to reflect the correct time & date. Visit Cingular.com/dst2007 from your PC for info
Really? Well that information would have been really fucking important to deliver before March 11th and not four days later.
Here a couple of marketing slogans that Cingular can use for free if they so desire
– Cingular : Working on a carrier pigeon network to improve our service.
– Cingular : Don’t blame us, it’s the motherfuckers at AT&T that are slow.
– Cingular : For only $5 more a month we will deliver timely information on time.
Green Beer, Green Pee
Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. What will 50% Irish Paulie be doing? I don’t know. I do know that you won’t find me anywhere near one of Atlanta’s Irish Pubs. Since stealing the idea from my friend Sandy a few years ago I used to frequent a Mexican bar on 3/17 and an Irish bar on 5/5, but I might not even do that this year. Hell, for all I know I might satisfy that hankering I’ve had to eat Ethiopian food tomorrow night. Perhaps they’ll be cute and serve me up some Ethi O’Pian injera bread topped with delicious meat.
Sadly this is also not a corned beef Sunday at Twain’s because I do have some business in Decatur to transact and would love to marry a corned beef sandwich to a micro-brewed beer.
And speaking of corned beef…. Area man Alton Brown did a Good Eats episode about corned beef where aired on Food Network last week (those cheeky bastards are far more timely than Cingular). I thought that the episode was pretty good and will definitely try at least one of his recipes. However the perfectionist in me was bugged when an on-screen graphic said that Alton was entering a pharmacy at 12:15am when it was clearly daylight outside. You see, after noon it’s called the the Post Meridian and therefore the time should have read 12:15pm.

More of me.
Somebody contact REI and let them know that there is an overweight, pseudo-granola, faux-environmentalist, lazy sonnabitch wearing their t-shirt.
March 15th effectively marks the half-point in the month. Here’s an update on my goals. So far I am failing at goals 1-7.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – cantankerous (although pleased that I spelled this correctly the first time)
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Wilco — “What Light”
Website Of The Day – Because I love to eat I am trying to find low-calorie snacks. Even though I am not pregnant I loves me some pickles and want to show the good folks at Mt. Olive Pickles some link love.
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
1) Lose two pounds. (starting weight ~205 lbs?)
2) Run no fewer than thirty miles.
3) Do twenty push-ups and fifty sit-ups at on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays.
4) Finish February’s book and read at least one more.
5) Take Marta to work at least ten times.
6) File my Income Taxes.
7) Wear “nicer” clothes to work at least one day a week.
