I’ve backed myself into a time corner so I have little-to-no time for the blog today.
I’m way behind schedule at work. I’m liking the work I’m doing, I just need to get it done on schedule.
Tonight I’ll be attending the performance of “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me!” at Cobb Energy Centre
Saturday afternoon I’ll be laying the Pine Lake Hash and I fear that some of the area that I’ve chosen has been changed. Looks like I’ll need to perform a little last-minute reccying, but when? Oh, and the weather forecast is calling for cold and rain on Saturday. Niiiiiiice.
Last night I left the office “early” 6:00pm because I was tired and hungry. I went to Fox Bros BBQ, started to watch “The Year Without A Santa Claus,” fell asleep for about an hour waking at 10:20pm, watched Top Chef, and then could not get back to sleep until around 2:00am. Of course getting to sleep at that hour has made me later than usual this morning. Oh bother…
Five Of The One Hundred Simple Secrets Of Happy People
I am currently, and deliberately slowly, reading a super-easy read called The 100 Simple Secrets Of Happy People. Each morning I read three of these “secrets.” (Remember when I mentioned exercising my mind?)
Here are five “secrets” on which you can ponder
- Root for the home team
- Don’t confuse stuff with success
- Every relationship is different
- Don’t think “What if?”
You may find this hard to believe, but I’m trying to live my life under the concept that it’s the only one I’ll ever have so I better enjoy it.
RealiTV Update: Top Chef — Atlanta Loses Again
Like Richard Blais before him Kevin Gillespie made it to the finals for Top Chef and came in third place.
I don’t think it’ll hurt his career too much as he was picked as the fans’ favorite and I’ve heard that Woodfire Grill is booked through mid-January.
