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” 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.

I’ll probably never get around to writing my full Chumby review so I might as well use the photo I took for it.
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.
