Hi kids! Look who has internet access again! In case you haven’t seen, I posted ITP: The Lost Episode, which is the blog post I prepared for yesterday but never could upload.
Let Me Guess, You’re Sitting In 9C
My boss and I made it to the Melbourne, FL with time to spare yesterday. The airport was incredibly dead so it took no time to get check in. While checking in I decided to look for a better seat, but with nothing better available I stayed with my original selection of 9D.
With time to spare we bellied up to the bar (where I drank more Yuengling) and started a four-way conversation including the bartender and a woman, who happened to be a doctor, at the bar. The doctor was flying to a conference in Destin, FL from Melbourne, FL via Atlanta, GA. After a few yucks the conversation turned to politics. The doctor decided to figure out the political views of my boss and me by querying our profession and ages. She then said, “I’ll need one more piece of personal information.” so I said “Oh what the hell, I’ll never see you again. I like being on the bottom.” (which is not necessarily true, I was just being a smart ass.) Laughs from everyone were abundant. It turned out that my political beliefs were different from the other three people in the conversation so I became the target of inquiries. After I had enough I offhandedly said “Let me guess, you’re sitting in 9C. Aren’t you…” At which point she looked at her boarding pass to find out that she was indeed sitting in 9C.
The flight itself was uneventful as she proceeded to read for the entire one-hour flight as I stared at the clouds (a topic for another day).
Is My Chumby Becoming A Dumby?
When I arrived home last night I found my Chumby in the confused state that it is always in when I am not around to dismiss the alarm of the alarm clock. I dismissed the screen and was confused to watch it have trouble connecting to my wifi network. All efforts to get it to connect to the internet failed (man, is this ever a recurring theme in my life right now.) Bummer. I’ll try to find time this weekend to get it working again, but it will be low on the to-do list.

I’m a star! Last night Chris Marquardt posted the latest Tips From The Top Floor video podcast. Look who’s included telling the story of the lost hats in Rocky Mountain National Park.
(btw- this is a screen capture that I took while pausing the video. Admittedly it’s not my best pose, but it makes me laugh.)
Road Bike Good News, Bad News
Good News: I’m riding part of the Beautiful Backroads Century tomorrow.
Bad News: I haven’t mounted my bike for a few weeks.

Good News: I have time tonight to replace the tube and tire and make sure it holds air.
Come Strut Your Stuff Tomorrow
Tomorrow is the annual East Atlanta Strut. Sadly I’ll be riding my butt off in Cartersville for the early part of the day, but I just may wander up to the village later for a little fun and frivolity.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – overweight, but ready to turn the corner
Current Music – listening to the MacBreak Weekly podcast
Website Of The Day – I just finished off a box of delicious maple candy from Maple Grove Farms. The candy was a gift from my friend Chrissy who happens to be a Vermont native and proudly distributes her home-state’s crack.
