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 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. 😉
