Because it’s depressing me.
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
Eloquence is sometimes lyrical, sometimes powerful, but always an overstatement and always a projection.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Marta Was Definitely Not Smarta
I dropped the Jackmobile off at Curry Honda for an oil change yesterday morning (spare me the “Why am I taking it to the dealer?” question) One of the biggest benefits of taking it to Curry is that they shuttle me to my office. They offer a shuttle back later in the day, but I usually hop on Marta because this way I can leave the office when I want.
Yesterday’s trek to get my car seemed to be no different than before. I saw a Marta train go by on my walk to the station so I knew that it would be a “few” minutes for the next one to arrive. I didn’t expect a “few” to turn in to about ten, and I subsequently didn’t expect to wait about fifteen more minutes for a Doraville train to roll through Lindbergh station when I arrived there. Over all it took me nearly an hour to get from my office to Curry Honda, and then of course it took me nearly an hour to drive from Curry Honda to my house.
I’d Buy That For A Dollar
Last night I met up with the newly-formed Monday night EAV Running group. It was funny (in a good way) to see a handful of non-EAV hashers arrive for the run. I struggled over the chosen four-mile loop (might have something to do with the four and nine mile runs that I did the previous two days).
Afterwards the hashers in the group walked up to Blue Frog Cantina where we (amazingly) met up with another five or so hashers and consumed $1 tacos and $2 PBRs. In the future I will consume the tacos along with a “better” beer.
ITP Flickr Pic
I promise that this will be the last from my University of South Carolina trip (mostly because I have no more). I keep posting shots from that trip because I have not take a photo since (where is the time?!)
Technically speaking this shot isn’t that great, mostly because I was shooting into the light. However, this shot pleases me nonetheless.
More On My Doppelganger / Nemesis
This morning while driving into work I saw the Jeep with the Jersey tag, NY Giants bumper sticker, and FSU spare tire cover parked on the street. I have a feeling that I’ll be seeing this person often because now I know that the person lives along my commute and apparently works somewhere along my commute as well (I’ll guess Turner because sooooo many work there).
I Don’t Want To Buy The Car, I Just Want To Rent It
My August Colorado travel plans are taking shape. It looks like I might be out for as much as two weeks. I have been searching for car rental information and have been floored by how expensive this can get. Currently the cheapest rates that I have found, for a compact car mind you, is $300 per week before taxes. That means that my car rental could cost me upwards of $750! Holy fucking hell!
CD Pick Of The Week
While the Rocket From The Crypt and Goldfrapp releases intrigue me, I know so little about these bands that I can’t blindly (deafly?) recommend them.
Instead today I am going to dare you to do something different. Today you should go to Jonathan Coulton’s website and check out his music. If you like what you hear you can also go to the Variety Playhouse and purchase a ticket for his March 22nd show; you know that I’ll be there.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
