Last night I met up with the East Atlanta Village Monday Night Runners Group (all those caps make it look official, no?). Seeing how the Atlanta area is poised to be dumped on by Mother Nature and that I knew a lot of people who’d be doing the run I chose to switch up my Monday and Tuesday workouts. Once again the hash has (temporarily?) pushed out the “normal” people and last night’s group consisted of five hashers and one person who should have a hash name since she has run with hashers long enough. Given that last night marked my third day of consecutive running (something that hasn’t worked well recently) in addition to running Sunday’s Black Sheep hash I ran a surprisingly inspired five-mile loop before heading straight home to take care of tasks which didn’t get done over the weekend.

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
I don’t need a “reason” to be happy. I don’t have to consult the future to know how happy I feel now.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
I Finally Caught Up On Survivor
I won’t bother with a spoiler alert, if you haven’t watched yet you deserve to know…
While last week’s episode was far from groundbreaking I will agree that I don’t understand the Fans’ voting strategy. I guess that they are simply fortunate that next week tribes will get changed, too early for a merge.
I love the fact that Ozzie found the hidden Immunity Idol. I thought it even funnier that he fashioned an Imitation Idol in hopes that someone else will find it and try to play it later on. I wonder if he will leak the fact that he possesses the idol his tribe mates, specifically to Amanda when he and her are “doin’ it.”
Next week should be interesting. It looks like Jonathan gets bitten/stung by something which causes the medics to have to administer medication to him. Did anyone pick up on the karma foreshadowing when Eliza wished poor health on Jonathan and James when they were talking about how they should have voted her off? Am I reading too much into this situation? Is this what CBS wants me to think?

um, none? yeaaaah.
My Taxing Situation
2007 proved to be a challenging year in more ways than I imagined. One of the most egregious mistakes that I committed was not keeping my tax paperwork in a special folder throughout the year. Now I am scrambling to get everything in order for a meeting with my accountant at noon. I am also hoping that she can possibly explain why the Federal Government returned my early tax payment, as well as figure out a way that I won’t be penalized because of this.
CD Pick Of The Week
Some weeks it’s really easy for me to decide which CD release to recommend. This week Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks release “Real Emotional Trash”, which I pre-ordered at Criminal Records weeks ago.
Even though I was not the biggest fan of Malkmus’ former band Pavement (due mostly to a lack of exposure) I jumped onto the Malkmus a few years back.
Before plunking down your money be forewarned… if you are a fan of the “2 minute 50 pop song” steer clear of Malkmus’ music. Malkmus is a bit of a throwback to the older days of rock and “Real Emotional Trash” has at least one song which breaks the eight-minute mark.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – okay, but wish I was better prepared for my meeting
Current Music – listening to the “Car Talk” podcast (yep, I’ve now subscribed to their RSS feed)
Website Of The Day – With all this talk about taxes I’ve decided to try investing in bands at SellaBand.
