Somebody Should Have Called Me Out

While yesterday’s declaration of “not drinking until Thanksgiving” wasn’t meant to be earth-shattering, someone should have called me out to the fact that Thanksgiving is only like two weeks away. Somehow I thought it was much further away than that. Thankfully I am not planning on running a half-marathon or anything like that on that Thursday.

One Hurdle Lept
I will give myself a smidgen of credit because last night as I was able to sit at a table of six any be the only one without a beer. I believe that I even fended off some ridicule.

The oddest triumph last night was the reason that I didn’t drink — because I said that I wasn’t going to. My word actually meant something again last night and it made me rather proud.

We’ll see how things go if I can make it to George’s tonight.

I like this picture


I like it so much that I put it up as my weekly photo over at Jalapeno Beach. [note to self: still need to update Jalapeno Beach]

File Under: I Shouldn’t Have To Do This Shit
It’s been over a week since I gave my second blood sample to the doctor as part of a physical. I have yet to hear anything about the lab tests, nor have they told me anything about my urine sample. On the one hand I can take this as good news — there is nothing so seriously wrong with my that warrants immediate action; on the other hand I’d prefer the doctor’s office to complete the job they are supposed to do and follow up with me.

It’s been well over a month since I received a parking ticket while recruiting at Florida Atlantic University. On the day that I received the ticket I filed an appeal (there were many reasons that I thought the ticket was in error) and was told that I’d receive a verdict in “about three weeks.” While I do not feel that I should have to pay the $25 fine I am more than a little worried that if I fail to pay now there could be some ramifications later on. It’s not like I never plan to go back to Florida or anything…

Annual Turner-Friend Call Out
If you have Thrashers’ vouchers that you don’t plan on using your good friend Paulie wouldn’t mind taking them off your hands. I still have ten games remaining in my thirteen-game-pack and would like to attend more games, especially if it doesn’t cost me anything. 😉

Ramsay’s Back Tonight
Woo Fucking Hoo!!!

It’s been a long two weeks since I’ve seen a new episode of Kitchen Nightmares. The waiting ends tonight.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Husker Du — “Makes No Sense At All” (and suddenly I feel like I am eighteen again)
Website Of The Day – You know how U-Haul has state-related pictures painted onto their trucks? Did you know that you can go to U-Haul’s Super Graphics to find out information about each?
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
Monthly Foot Mileage – 14.5 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car
Beers Consumed Since 11/03 – 0

November Goals
1) Run no fewer than 25 miles
2) Not worry about running the Atlanta Half-Marathon
3) Read at least one book

    I drank Becks Light last night so its almost like I didn’t drink.

  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Why bother? 😉

  3. Martha says:

    Well at only 64 cal…it doesn’t hurt. Plus I still look cool! 8)

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Ha! I think that’s what I’ll do for the next two weeks — carry around an empty beer bottle and constantly fill it with water. I should make it surreal by carrying a Bud bottle and see how people react.

    I like free hockey tickets too……….
    Beck’s Light has only 64 calories? that is less that MC’s old favorite Pearl Light.
    I’m guessing that means Charlie G’s still is out of all the good beer? Maybe that is why you guys didn’t win first.

  6. Martha says:

    Yes, I think we were all too sober to think straight.

  7. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    All of my brilliant ideas, and many of my dumbest, occur when I am drunk.

  8. Maigh says:

    Consider it done. I’ll have a book of vouchers for you next week, ping me and we’ll arrange for a hand off. 😉

  9. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Woo Hoo! Thanks! You gonna be at the bloggers’ drinking fest? I could stop by then and get them. I’d like to see everyone as well, although I’ll have to pass on the alcohol.
