Those two words adequately describe how I felt about a lot of this weekend’s happenings.
I Gave, And Have To Give Again
On Friday I called the doctor’s office responding to a voice mail they had left me on Thursday. Thinking that we were going to discuss the results of my blood and urine tests I was more than a little surprised and perturbed to hear that the lab lost my blood sample. (I hate giving blood, next to becoming the doctor’s finger puppet it’s the thing I hate most about physicals) I made an appointment to return to the doctor’s office on Friday afternoon only to realize on my commute to their office that I had eaten lunch and probably shouldn’t have. The nurse confirmed this when I arrived. Had they reminded not to eat when I called them, this wouldn’t have happened.
So this morning I am hanging around the house a little later than normal so that I can go get stuck with a needle prior to going in to work.
My Nuts Are Small And Shriveled
The pecans on the tree… Ew, what the hell were you thinking?!
It didn’t appear the this summer’s drought was going to impact the pecan tree greatly, but the nuts that I’ve been able to harvest are substandard. Cracking open many of the shells reveals either small nuts, or completely dried out and inedible nuts. I know that the squirrels have raided the tree as well, but I can’t imagine that their bounty has been much better.
And On The Second Day Of The Weekend
The Gators shall shit the bed and lose to Georgia…. I had a bad premonition about this game; not so bad that I would pick against them in my college pool but a bad one nonetheless. Sadly (for me) my premonition came true and the young Gator defense yielded forty-two points.
I felt little pain as the game went on, mostly because I wasn’t watching it. Instead I was in a yard drinking beer whilst eating chicken wings and pork.

The Great Clock On The
Wall Night Stand Is So Confused
My “fancy pants” alarm clock which can set itself when given power is once again confused. Because its internal software still thinks that we are playing under the Daylight Savings Time rules which were in effect prior to this year it “fell back” this weekend. It now displays a time one-hour earlier than it is.
I was nearly tripped up by this yesterday. I planned to carpool to the hash and meet at 1:15pm. Because I had been drinking all day Saturday I was not exactly on top of my game yesterday morning. I lolly-gagged around the house, shambled into the living room, and watched a bunch of recorded television. I finally got up and stumbled into the bedroom where the clock read “10:45am”. I was pleased to see that I had so much time. I sat down at the computer and started banging away and looked at the clock fifteen minutes later only to see that the real time was 12:00pm. I was then forced to quickly shift gears so that I could get everything I had to do prior to going to the hash done.
I Need More Sunday Food Options
I think that the tradition of going to Zocalo on Sunday has ended. Yesterday when returning from the hash we tried to pick up some food and head to a friend’s house in Grant Park to eat. The process was mildly painful…
The goal was to make this a quick pickup. Two of the original options, Nick’s Greek food and Kevino’s Subs, were found to be closed on Sundays. A decision was made to go to The Standard. The order placed consisted of three hamburgers, one Peri-Peri chicken sandwich (because I have to be different), and ten chicken wings. We were obviously not the only people ordering food-to-go as we saw at least three other orders come out prior to ours. Upon investigation of the two sacks provided to us it was found that the chicken wings were not present. Because we were really hungry, had already driven away, and the chicken wings were an “added bonus” and not somebody’s meal, I decided to say “aw shit” (or something like it) and not return to The Standard to either get the wings or the money I had paid for them refunded.
