Catching Up Is Hard To Do

I am back where I belong, ITP. The weekend was fun, but largely uneventful so today’s entry will be short. I’ve got a lot to process in the upcoming days. Perhaps some blogging topics will arise from that.

Putting The Excitement Back In The Boring Drive
This is a tale of two commutes.

On my drive to North Carolina the events which made the drive interesting were mostly created internally. I decided to take the “roads less traveled” and after missing a number of turns for varying reasons I made it up to the mountains in a record (slow) time. Sadly, the reason I chose to avoid much of America’s Interstate System was to see “old” America and hopefully be presented with bountiful photo opportunities. Neither of these materialized.

The return trip to Atlanta had the routine moments of excitement, read “state troopers waiting to pounce like snow leopards in Planet Earth“, as well as some unexpected moments of excitement such as a ladder falling out of a truck in the lane next to me. Luckily neither predator was able to snare the Jackmobile on its journey home.

I have plenty to process tonight. Perhaps there will be two tomorrow…

RealiTV Catch Up
I sat and watched both Survivor and Amazing Race last night.

To me Survivor has become completely worn out. With the exception of Yau Man I really could care less about any of the people remaining and this whole secret immunity idol business is stupid. Unless I misheard, one of the teasers last night said that there are only four more episodes remaining? That means that there will be a lot of eliminations soon.

Amazing Race could take a hint from Survivor by getting rid of some of their teams. I like the Cha-Chas, but another non-elimination leg? Come on already… I just may want this season to end so that I don’t have to see Mirna belittle Charla any longer (get it? I said belittle because she’s a midget). I’d say that Mirna could change her attitude when she grows up, but she’s already thirty so I think that she’ll probably be an ass her entire life.

CD Pick Of The Week
Those wacky Arctic Monkeys have a new release today called “”. Since I have not heard much of this on Sirius I should assume that it sucks balls, but instead I will buck that notion and hereby choose it as the CD Pick Of The Week.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair, but will need ample time to catch up.
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Luscious Jackson — “Naked Eye” (when was the last time you heard that?)
Website Of The Day – If I have to describe what Simple Weather does then the domain name has gone to waste.
Exercise (b)Log – nada
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car

April Goals
1) Lose two pounds. (starting weight 202 lbs?)
2) Run no fewer than thirty miles.
3) Do twenty push-ups and fifty sit-ups at on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays.
4) Read three books, specifically
4a) “722 Miles: The Building of the Subways and How They Transformed New York”
4b) “Programming Interviews Exposed: Secrets to Landing Your Next Job”
4c) “50 Fast Digital Photo Techniques”
5) Take Marta to work at least ten times.
6) File my Income Taxes. (since they are due in two weeks I better get this done)
7) Wear “nicer” clothes to work at least one day a week.
8\) Cook dinner at home at least two nights a week.

    You already know that shit is kicking around in my head, don’t you? 🙂

    Since I’ve been out a week, what exactly was the point of a weekend spent in beautiful Boone NC? That is actually a nice area, and I have spent many a drunken week there in my younger days, attending the Highland Games at Grandfather Mountain.

    You know, FP, I was wondering the same thing. He mentioned this mountain excursion and directed us to the beautiful rentals’ website, but never quite told us the details.

    Are you having some secret, sordid affair?
    Are you on the run from the law this week?
    Are you on some secret government project?

    Details, man! We need more details!

  5. Steve says:

    Paulie, it’s OK, you can tell us. We can keep a secret….

    It was a weekend cabin rental with Banger Not, Cheese Infection, whatever their little one’s hash name is, Check My Bags, and I Know That Trick (to non-hashers just consider that list to mean “hashing friends”). I’d like to say that there was more intrigue and mystery behind the reason for travel, but really there wasn’t.
