Living On Central Time

This will be quick as I am headed to Nashville today for tonight’s Okkervil River / New Pornographers show (I know, they played in Athens last night — meh). It’s already past when I wanted to leave and I’ve yet to pack. Priorities…. mine are all screwed up.

Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.

I always seem to be feeling either superior or inferior, one up or one down, better off or worse off than everyone else. The superior moments are elating, but the rare and blessed moments are when I feel equal.

To all who have helped me — Thanks.

Weak Sauce
“Weak sauce” is the best way that I can describe my attempted run yesterday. I started the trot the same way that I have the previous two days but yesterday’s jaunt was different. The first mile was tough, the second really tough, and the third and a half absolutely brutal. While it was warmer than the previous weather in which I’ve run I can’t blame the weather. I think my diet has been “iffy” but not horrible so I cannot fault it either. It may boil down to my body still not being ready to run three days in a row.

It concerns me that I will have to crank things up a few notches to be able to run thirteen in a month’s time, never mind the ten I am scheduled for tomorrow.

ITP Flickr Pic
I’ll probably never get around to writing my full Chumby review so I might as well use the photo I took for it.
Bedside Chumby
Ladies, if that manly bedding, on a bed which is made every morning, excites you — you know where to send an email…

Played To Perfection
Last night I rejoined Meet The Hashers for a little Team Trivia at Raging Burrito in Decatur. It was the first time that I’ve been able to do so in some time. As if we hadn’t missed a beat we won — with a perfect score no less! Unlike many previous outings this was a complete team effort. Vandy Beth’s friend (a nice young girl and fellow-Gator from Puerto Rico whose name I didn’t quite catch) was the only one of us who knew that Nickelback was both from Canada and had a #1 hit called “How You Remind Me” back in 2002. My lone solo contribution of “John Olerud” was based on my love of baseball, specifically the New York Mets.

RealiTV Update: Survivor
I didn’t get an opportunity to watch. Discuss amongst yourselves….

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – decent
Current Music – my iTunes library listening to Stars Of Track And Field — “Movies Of Antarctica”
Website Of The Daystrangeglue is another of the really good sites out there providing music news and reviews — just don’t expect any information about Nickelback there.
Exercise (b)Log – running, 3.5 lousy miles
Monthly Foot Mileage – 38.5 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – n/a
Monthly Marta Rides – 0
Consecutive Days Of Bed-Making (Longest Streak) – 18 (18)

April Goals
1) Run no fewer than 75 miles
2) Ride no fewer than 100 road miles
3) Ride Marta no fewer than ten times (five round-trips)
4) Read at least one book
5) Make my bed every day

    Drat darnit on you, ITP!! The ONE week where I’m actually excited to discuss Survivor and you had to go have yourself a life by being OUT last night instead of watching it!

    Have fun in Nashville! 🙂

  2. Terri (SW) says:

    Survivor was pretty sick last night…”sick” as in “freakin’ awesome,” not “sick” as in “eating an apple once stuck up a pig’s arse” kinda sick ;)!

  3. stacy says:

    I KNOW, right, Terri?! I am totally loving the show again.

    Speaking of apples up pigs arses… you know, I thought ITP’s photos of the pig were disturbing… but girl, yours are twisted!

    (And by twisted I mean really cool. Creepy as all get out, but really cool)

  4. willy says:

    All; uhh…… where can one view these “twisted” photos?

  5. Terri (SW) says:

    I have them on my Flickr site; however, because of the nature of my job and out of respect for the parties involved, I keep my Flickr site private for friends and family only (in other words, you have to have a Flickr account!).

    They’re just pics of a pig carcass…no one else’s carcass is in any of the pics 🙂

  6. I am in Nashville. I am embarrassed to admit how long it took me to get here, especially since I took no photos along the way. Tune in Monday….

  7. Well, I just watched Survivor (thanks!) and have lost all faith in the show. I may be out from here on in.

  8. Stacy says:

    Are you kidding, Paulie? I mean, I didn’t want him to go this week, but it was the first brilliant play these folks actually made out there!

    And, Willy – when I said “twisted,” it was meant as a compliment… in that creepy sort of way. Terri, it’s the one of the pig head upside down on the table that got me to say that. 🙂

  9. Ozzy leaving a game called “Survivor” before Cirie tells me that the game is fundamentally flawed. There is not enough time in my life to follow flawed entities.

  10. Barb says:

    Ozzy was an IDIOT, how could he not have seen that coming………. he deserved to go for that bonehead move. Never trust Cirie, didn’t he watch the season she was on as research? I hate having him gone, but trusting his fellow players? Come on.
