Humberto and a bunch of ineffective planning have come in and altered my weekend plans. Tonight I was to head up to Lake Hartwell for a weekend of drinking, laughs, and camping. With a forecast of 100% chance of rain and the knowledge that I am nowhere near prepared to travel, I have decided to stay in the hood tonight and reconsider my options tomorrow morning.
Traffic Can Be So Finicky
I had to work later than normal last night since I had arrived later than normal. With the remnants of Humberto moving through I knew that leaving at 5pm wouldn’t be smart anyway. My journey home was fine until I hit the Lenox Mall area. At that point everything came a halt. Figuring that sitting in traffic would only serve to annoy me I turned the car around and headed to the mall for some dinner (Chinese). The plan was also to walk off dinner but I was in no mood to be in the traffic that was Lenox Mall shoppers either. I thought about doing a little websurfing via my BlackJack, but of course AT&T’s coverage is shit there and couldn’t get anywhere. Upon leaving the mall thirty minutes after arriving things were not great, but at least they were much better than when I had arrived.
Getting home around 7:30pm – 8pm really screws with my sense of time however. I kept thinking that it was much earlier than it really was.

Flickr is full of cat pictures so I figured one more wouldn’t hurt
This little guy (girl?) was out on its normal afternoon walk when it happened upon a guy with a strange apparatus in his hand (that would be me and my camera).
And One More Thing
I have taken an unspoken vow to improve my posts starting next week. Having said that, the next month of my life is going to be very hectic, so things will be far from perfect.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – depressed
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Morrissey — “In The Future When All’s Well” (wow, I just realized that I am less optimistic than Morrissey
Website Of The Day – At least it looks like the weather will be perfect for those attending the East Atlanta Strut.
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
Monthly Mileage – 6.5 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car
1) Get my first Ruby / Ruby on Rails program written
2) Lose 5 pounds (if at first, second, third, fourth, you don’t succeed….)
3) Take now fewer than three photos a day
4) Listen to (and review) one CD a day in September
