Twice yesterday I really wished that I had my camera with me.
While on my drive to Georgia Tech I passed a “breaking news situation.” A hugh tree had finally decided that it was time to give up and chose a house as its final resting place. While I passed the situation WSB was setting up shop to do an “on location” shot; here is their video (hope the link still works).
Then there were the twins, identical twins at that. At the career fair the NSA brought two Georgia Tech Alumni in the form of identical twins. I so wanted to go ask the nearly-identically dressed twins if they worked in data duplication, but didn’t have the heart to go up an add to what I am sure has been a lifetime of jokes at their expense. I also wondered if they shared a cubical in their office; hell they shared a room once, comparatively a cubical would be expansive.

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
Why do I judge my day by how much I have “accomplished?”
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Keep Bringing ‘It’ Mother Nature, You Won’t Stop Me
Cold and windy days.
Predictions of snow for tomorrow.
I don’t care! I’ve a schedule to run and I plan to keep it up goddamn it! After arriving home from the career fair I relaxed for about a half hour, changed clothes, and then pounded the pavement for three miles. While the run wasn’t quite as good as Tuesday’s on the same route I was pleased because this is the first time that I’ve run three days in a row in many years so I expected a bit of a struggle.

Thanks to my friend Betsy I know what to do when Life gives you a Tweety Bird waffle maker; you make Tweety Bird waffles. Would the same logic apply when Life provides you with all of the ingredients necessary to make jambalaya?
I’m Starting To Miss “Must See TV”
While I thoroughly enjoying watching episode three of Michael Palin’s “Sahara” last night I must admit that I was jonesin’ for a little Thursday night “The Office.” But alas, with the writers still striking I was denied my fix. I guess I shouldn’t be overly upset though, because it seems that “The Office” is the only series that I miss — until The Amazing Race goes away on Sunday that is.
What’s In A Name?
Until recently the name “English Nick” meant little to me. I believe I heard him once or twice on the radio, but that was it. On Christmas day I met one of my friend Betsy’s friends, whose name I will butcher, Ca(n)trell (who also happens to be the proprietor of Dr. Bombay’s in Candler Park). Ca(n)trell’s boyfriend is “English Nick.”
Yesterday while scanning my blogs I saw the name “English Nick” again. Unfortunately this time it was associated with some bad news. According to Drive A Faster Car “English Nick” has recently been in a bad car accident and has insufficient medical coverage to pay for his upcoming hospital bills.
Over the next weeks there will be five benefits put on by Metalsome Karaoke, for whom “English Nick” also works, with the proceeds going toward paying off “English Nick’s” medical bills. If this sounds like a worthy cause to you I suggest you go visit the Drive A Faster Car site and get the details.
Hey, Let’s End On An Upbeat Note!
Even with the crummy weather coming in this weekend holds a lot of potential.
Tonight I will be at The EARL to see Yeasayer. Here’s keeping my fingers crossed in hopes that the show doesn’t get canceled.
Tomorrow I will remain warm (after my three-mile training run of course) by spending quality time in the kitchen cooking up another Andouille Pudding; this one will be my companion for Little Easy’s Louisiana-themed Birthday Bash. My new party theory is that if you can’t bring a date you might as well bring some delicious food.
On Sunday I will perform a freezing six-mile training run and I might even suffer further by attending the Black Sheep Hash. I won’t be partying late however, because unlike many, I do not get Martin Luther King Jr. Day off as a paid holiday. Rats!
Whatever you do this weekend, do it with passion. I know that I intend to…
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
