Blog delay today was not my fault. My office building had a partial power outage and no internet connectivity.
It will come as no surprise that I am not the happiest camper in the world. I completely understand that I have a lot of good things going for me, but I am greedy and want more.
If It’s Not One Thing It’s Something Else
Last night I decided to take advantage of the facts that I rode Marta to work and that the weather was perfect, so I walked from Arts Center to my car. I guess that I either wore the wrong socks or I was unable to tighten my shoe as well I as I do without a gimpy thumb, but I managed to get a blister on one of my feet. Seriously, can I catch a fucking break already?
More Medical Bills Are In My Immediate Future
Yesterday I received my reminder card for my optometrist appointment in December. Damn, how much is this visit going to cost?

I have ordered the blue one. I hate my Second Generation iPod Shuffle and this was only $100 so I couldn’t pass it up. Even better, I was able to find Apple’s iPod Nano (2nd Gen) armband on the clearance rack at Target for $7.50 (it originally sold for $29).
Marta’s Breeze Card Doesn’t Give Me Comfort
Because I have been riding Marta more often (has anyone noticed?), I was getting close to running out of ride credits on my Breeze Card. Before hopping the train home yesterday I loaded my Breeze Card with another $30 worth of rides. Because of the way the Breeze Cards work, my heart skipped a beat this morning when the card reader said that I had no more rides remaining on my card. At first I was furious because I felt that Marta had ripped me off, then I probably realized that the Breeze Card system was just stupid; the latter was correct. When I went to the Breeze Card vending machine after this morning’s commute the screen showed that I had no more rides left on the previous twenty-ride pack, and that I had one twenty-ride pack pending. Couldn’t they just sum all of these rides together? It seems bizarre to me. Maybe they should have called it the Bizarre Card.
I Hope You All Have A Wonderful Thanksgiving!
And if you read this in a country that’s not celebrating America’s Thanksgiving tomorrow why don’t you let us know what you are doing.
If you are running either Atlanta’s Half or Full Marathon and you want a free beer at the end just come up to me and mention InsideThePerimeter.com. This offer is null and void if it is raining so hard that I don’t make it out to the ending (never thought rain would be an issue this year), or when I run out of beer.
And if you are around Friday either at work (like I will be) or near an internet connection swing by ITP. I will have a regularly-scheduled blog post waiting for you.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
