All three times I typed that it came out “Let It Snot”, seriously there must be something wrong with me.
Yesterday I was clever enough to get out for a four-mile run around the Perimeter Mall area before the “heavy stuff” started coming down, although I did run through some light snow flurries. Now I know that there must be something wrong with me.
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
Confession is often an avoidance of change. If I confess it, I don’t have to accept the responsibility of changing it: “I confess. It is beyond my control.” And it shifts the burden: “You have heard it, now what are you going to do about it?”
To all who have helped me â€” Thanks.
For The Record, I’m Not Here
And so begins… college recruiting season. Today finds me on the campus of Georgia Tech attending a career fair put on by the National Society of Black Engineers means to retaliate today. This is the first time that I’ve attended this career fair and with today’s lousy weather I will be interested to see the turn out.

A few weeks ago I went to Slope’s BBQ for lunch. As is the case in many restaurants there was a wall of autographed photos inside the restaurant.
Much to my surprise there was a grouping for the members of “Space Ghost,” including my friend Andy here seen as his alter-ego Brak.
Still No New Ride For My Feet
Although I had planned to go and buy new running shoes instead of fighting traffic my heart just wasn’t in it. After my run, stretch, and shower the last thing I wanted to think about was more running equipment. Further, since I knew that it was going to be a long ride home no matter what time I embarked, I decided that I might as well get into the mix as soon as I could.
You Win Some, You Lose Some
Where my Andouille Pudding came out really well, my Shrimp Boulettes were nearly a complete failure. The boulettes are balls the size of walnuts (think hush puppies) which can either be baked (which I chose in order to be healthier) or deep fried (which I should have done). The consistency in my boulettes was revolting and the flavor was alright but nothing that I’d ever want to consume again. I’m not sure that deep frying them would have helped. I probably could tweak the recipe, but it’s really not worth the effort to me.
And this would be why I try recipes before making them for others.
