Because of my dinner plans this evening I drove my car to work (it’s a funny feeling not having the commute take over an hour). To my surprise my commute option was rewarded at the toll booth today because for some reason evil overlords Starbucks and Star 94 decided to pay the toll for commuters. Nice! I almost drove straight to Caribou Coffee to celebrate their kindness.
Tough Run, Tough Love
I was able to go and get a run in around lunch time yesterday. The only problem was that my run was terrible. I was never able to get into a rhythm and had to walk more than I cared to. I wound up cutting my route from five to four miles so that I could get back into the office in a timely fashion.
Oh well, something was better than nothing I suppose.
Phrustration At Philips
One day. One day I will go see the Islanders play and actually beat the Thrashers. Yesterday was not that day.
I went to the game with my good buddy Harold using a free ticket supplied by my good buddy Ralph.
Drinking was plentiful, so plentiful in fact that Harold and I went to George’s last night after the game (which went into overtime and shootout mind you). I was surprised to see a small pack of hashers still at George’s, most of whom knew that our arrival would mean more beer drinking and scattered out of the building shortly after our arrival. After completing a pitcher of beer George’s closed for the evening.
It’s been a while since I closed down a bar, however it was only about 11pm when they closed.

What starts with ‘f’ and ends with ‘k’?
Fire truck of course! Jeez what were you thinking?
And So Starts A New Era
I am finally finished with the user manual for my new Nikon D300 and today I plan on shooting with it for the first time.
Also today I am going to commit to being a photographer at Eddie’s Attic one evening later this month. It’s a non-paying gig (comped admission and food) but I am nervous nonetheless because it will be the first time that my work means something to someone other than myself.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Kings Of Leon — “Knocked Up” (no worries about that around the ITP household)
