I know that each week that I step onto the scale the number could go up or down. Therefore I was not too surprised or disappointed when the scale noted that I put on two pounds since last week’s weigh-in.
It was a busy weekend. I’d detail everything that went on if not for the fact that I have another full day of interviewing college students ahead of me today.

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
Now that I know I’m no wiser than anyone else, does this wisdom make me wiser?
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
I Went From Head To Toes
On Saturday I was preparing myself for a ten-mile training run by eating a massive skillet breakfast at Kasan Red in East Atlanta when I decided that with the sunny weather it might be a good idea to buy a running hat. Being a person who likes to support independent stores I drove over to Oakhurst to shop at One Step at a Time.
Once the store opened I talked to the guy who runs it and asked him about running hats. Unfortunately for me the only one they had in stock didn’t fit my head very well so I didn’t buy it. Since I was already there I perused the store to see what they had and I wound up buying a pair of Thorlo socks and a pair of Mizuno running shoes.
What Do You Call A Person With No Sense Of Smell?
blind = loss of sight
deaf = loss of hearing
mute = loss of speech
But what about a loss of smell? I have been bothered by not knowing this for some time now. I attempted Googling this over the weekend, but found nothing. Therefore, until I am told otherwise, I will refer to people who have lost their sense of smell as “jubjub”. Oh, and if I happen upon these letters playing Scrabulous expect me to play it as a valid word.

None, I still haven’t shot any photos. I need to find more time…
Atlanta Still Has A Basketball Team?
On Saturday night I volunteered for the Happy Hour for the Hounds event in East Atlanta. Until the point where I spilled my full beer I had a fantastic time.
During the event there was a raffle. I chose buy some tickets in an effort to win awesome seats for an upcoming Thrashers game. Instead, I wound up winning some vouchers (twenty if I remember correctly) for the Atlanta Hawks. Hmmm basketball, what a novel concept.
I’ll Be Running Tonight, But That’s It
Tonight I’ll be swapping my workout routine with my Tuesday scheduled run. The switch is for two great reasons (imho) — first I have friends who run in East Atlanta on Monday nights; second it’s supposed to rain heavily tomorrow night.
However, unlike other running outings I will be heading directly home after the run because I drank way too much this weekend and didn’t get any of my chores done. Oops.
