I’m Over The Cold

I (think that I) am over the flu but I am really talking about being over this cold weather. I know that some of you out there actually like cold weather, but as for me, notsomuch. I’m okay with the cold in December, January, and perhaps the first part of February but when the windchill hits the low twenties at the end of February I say enough’s enough. I’m sad to announce that I failed to muster the chutzpah to go out running last night and that there is no hope to hitting my seventy-five mile goal for February.

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.

Anyone who inhabits himself cannot believe in objective thinking.

To all who have helped me — Thanks.

Macon The Best Of A Bad Situation
Yesterday’s career fair was less than productive. Mercer is a nice university, but for my business purposes is a big miss.

My initial goal was to spend the entire day in Macon. I’ve never spent any time down there so I thought that it might be fun to explore. By the time that the career fair was over I had eaten breakfast and lunch and it was too early to get dinner. I really didn’t know what to do or where to go, so I returned to Atlanta.

The War May Be Over!
I appears that my epic struggle with Florida Atlantic University and Budget Rental Car (re: my parking ticket) may be over at last. Yesterday I received notification from Budget that they will be reversing the charges that they made to my American Express card. Of course I will not claim victory until I see all of the charges reversed.

ITP Flickr Pic Creative Block Day #????
I had plenty of time to take photos yesterday. I had sunny, albeit very chilly, skies yesterday once I was done down in Macon but no desire to get out and walk around. I returned home to work on my computer and then spent an hour or so cleaning my basement and then watching Not A Photograph: The Mission Of Burma Story before retiring for the evening.

I May Have Finally Backed Up My Data
I’ve felt a little sheepish reminding everyone to back up their data knowing that my situation was a mess. Last night I finally made a schedule for my nightly backups and have secured an off-site copy of my data.

Now it’s time for me to work on my workflow for my digital photography, that is once I start taking photos again…

Hockey Night In Atlanta
It seems like an eternity since I last went to a Thrashers game. Since then Atlanta has traded away one of the best players in Marion Hossa. Tonight my childhood favorite hockey team, the New York Islanders, are coming to town and I’ll be at the game. Since it’s now been thirty years since I lived in New York my allegiance to the Islanders is waning. I’ll be the guy silently rooting for each side.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – good, but cold and don’t know if I’ll find the time to run today
Current Music – listening to the “Net @ Nite” podcast
Website Of The Day – Good-bye FlexCar! Hello merger with Zip Car!
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
Monthly Foot Mileage – 60.4 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car
Monthly Marta Rides – 1

February Goals
1) Run no fewer than 75 miles
2) Ride Marta no fewer than ten times (five round-trips)
3) Read at least one book

    Down with budget rental cars! Up with the little guy!

    (now if you can only do that to the IRS, you’ll be set!)

    Dammit! I have no need to rent any kind of car, but I got sucked into browsing around the Zip Car website because of you. Kinda a neat concept really!

  3. I would be a very happy day in my world if I get to keep the money that the IRS returned.

  4. Don’t blame me, blame FlexCar! 😉

    I was doing my cool-down walk through the Candler Park Marta station parking lot after my nine-mile run on Sunday and I noticed that the signs for the FlexCar parking spaces were for Zip Car. I wondered if FlexCar had gone out of business so I did some research and wound up on ZipCar’s website.
