You may remember yesterday when I mentioned that the outside of my left knee was tender from Saturday’s bike ride. “Pain be damned!” I thought. I decided that I really wanted run last night and run I did. After returning home from the run which was followed by a few beers and some surprisingly healthy food at The Midway Pub last night the inside of my left knee started bothering me. At least beer drinking doesn’t seem to hurt my knees.
When Did It Become The Weather Channel Atlanta Marathon?
I went to send in my application for the Atlanta Thanksgiving Day half marathon and noticed that it’s now The Weather Channel Atlanta Half Marathon. When did this happen? I know that it’s been a few years since I’ve run the race, but I had no idea that it had succumbed to the evils of sponsorship. If only this meant that they’d also lower the admission prices…
The Man Just Keeps Sticking It In
I went online to pay the property taxes due on my house. I filled out all of the necessary information and then found out that there is a 2.5% charge in order to pay by credit card. Dangen! I know that there is a transaction fee for credit card use, but why should I have to pay it for the government? Most other businesses build it into their costs, can’t the government figure out how to do this?
I decided to pay by check. I figured that using a stamp (at whatever that rate is these days) was much cheaper than the $74 charge I was going to incur for using my credit card.

And while I have earthly idea how they do it, Bacon Salt is vegetarian-friendly. However, I seriously doubt that it’s kosher. 😉
Digital Download Of The Week
This week is a really easy one for me. Today the new Cold War Kids “Loyalty To Loyalty” is released. I’ve heard a few tracks from this disc and I think, or at least hope, that it will be as strong as their previous efforts.
And to prove that this blog is worthy of your time, I’ll let you know that Amazon is the place to buy it (at least when compared to the iTunes store). At Amazon the download is $9.49 for DRM-free 256kbps music where as at the iTunes store it’s $9.99 for DRM’ed music.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
