My Mind Is One Day Ahead This Week

I’m having one of those weeks where on Monday I thought it was Tuesday (so much so that I sat down to watch Hell’s Kitchen only to realize that I was a day early), Tuesday felt like Wednesday, and so on. I could handle today being Friday, but of course it is not.

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

Negative feedback is better than none. I would rather have a man hate me than overlook me. As long as he hates me I make a difference.

To all who have helped me — Thanks.

Don’t Talk To Strangers
During my incredibly slow and arduous (you know, there is no good way to get to a place called “The Highlands” without going uphill) six-mile run from Lindbergh Marta back to my car I crossed paths with my friend Harold. After stopping (which took no effort for me) and talking for a second I acquiesced to the idea of going to George’s (which oddly also took little effort) after reaching my car. The plan was to have a beer at George’s and give Harold a ride home and have another at his house. Of course “one” at George’s meant “two or more” and the same occurred at Harold’s place as we heated a frozen pizza in order to make room in the freezer for two two pig heads that Tony bought (it’s a looooooong story). I returned home at 11pm, toxic, and too tired to watch last night’s Top Chef in its entirety. Needless to say, I did not run this morning as planned.

The Poor Taste Of Irony Was Left Lingering All Afternoon
Last week I read a glowing review of Canton Cooks by local food blogger The Blissful Glutton. The photos of the food in her blog post alone had my mouth watering. Finding out that the restaurant was “near” my office one of my coworkers and I decided to eat lunch there yesterday. Was I ever disappointed to see “Closed Wednesdays” on their door as we went to enter the building. Why couldn’t their internal clock be a day ahead as well?

I wound up eating some fair, but overpriced pizza from a chain called Artuzzi’s Italian Kitchen instead.

As an aside…. Hey web developers, 1996 called and they want their splash screens back! If you have to put a link which says “Skip Flash Intro” because your useless splash screen takes too long to load then perhaps you should kill the damn Flash splash screen completely.

If the photography class that I am taking was called “Portrait Photography” I would have brought this in as part of my homework assignment.


But it’s called “People Photography” and even though “people” evolved from such animals I thought the connection would be missed but the class.

See Me, Hear Me
Tonight I am going to a lecture by world-renown photographer Jay Maisel which is being put on by American Institute Of Graphic Arts (Atlanta Chapter). I am really looking forward to it because it will be the first time since I got into photography that I’ve heard one of the “biggies” in the industry speak. I am also looking forward to it because the event is something way different than I’d normally do.

The only downside to this event is that it is being held at 7:00pm in that area North of IKEA so I was kinda forced to drive to work today so that I can get there on time.

RealiTV Update: Top Chef
I know who got kicked off only because I woke up during a replay just as they were asking the person to pack up knives and get the hell off the show. All I will say is that I’ve felt that this person needed to go for a long time now.

I’ll have a better update tomorrow.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Born Ruffians — “Hummingbird”
Website Of The Day – If you have the desire to create your own comic strip but don’t have the artistic skills to do so you should give ToonDoo a look.
Exercise (b)Log – running, 6 miles
Monthly Foot Mileage – 6 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 25 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car
Monthly Marta Rides – 6
Consecutive Days Of Bed-Making (Longest Streak) – 38 (38)

May 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

    Dude, Canton Cooks is excellent…make sure you make it back over there.

  2. Martha says:

    Really? You drank more than you intended at George’s, with Harold? I can’t believe that would ever happen. Well at least hockey season is over for us.

    Would you belive I’ve been told to cut back on my work outs??

    How am I ever going to look like lulu’s mom if I do that (and skip thousands of dollars in surgery)?

  3. Yeah, I can’t say that I didn’t know what I was in for when I agreed to meet Harold at George’s. 😉

    You are a workout fiend! LLM is just a genetic wonder, I am actually surprised that she even needs to work out.

    As for me I have given up on the idea of a perfect body (both having one and dating one) and will settle for a body that stops being in pain.

    Sorry I blew past you last night. I had an ugly run early and was on my way out the door.

    I have wanted to mention that I have added several of your sites of the day to my regular stops. Steals and Deals, last years’ Portrait a Day, Brijit- 100 words or less, and today, a link from a link, SushiandPassion.

    That darn Harold… always corrupting the young and defenseless.


  5. More like “That darn Harold… always corrupting the mentally weak.” 🙂
