Free-form blogging day!
I am now sitting (and iPad blogging) in the waiting room of my doctor’s office without having an appointment. I made no appointment yesterday hoping that I would finally kick the shit which has inhabited my body recently. I am feeling “mostly well” today, but just want to chat with the doctor to see about getting rid of this once and for all (at least in regards to this bout).
Who knows when I will get out of here. So, I am now wondering if I should call in “sick” (or burn a vacation day) since I have other chores to do and am hoping to get out of work early enough to get my bike into shape and make it down to Moreland for dinner.
I think that I might have just answered my question. Anyone need anything from REI?
Oh, That BNR
I made it to the CocoaHeads Atlanta meet up last night (not a single female in attendance) which was held at the offices of Big Nerd Ranch in Kirkwood. I laughed at the coincidence since I have been scoping out Big Nerd Ranch courses (they are expensive, like $5000 for a week of training at the ranch!) and have recently found out that one of my Flickr contacts works for them.
The meet up was interesting, even though the night’s presenter had to cancel due to illness, but I felt completely inadequate when the conversations started. At least I got a free Willy’s burrito out of the deal…
I had planned on going to the “on-after” at Thinking Man Tavern but I felt awkward and decided that I should head home and get some things together for this weekend instead.
A Smudgy Bill Of Health
Well I am out already. A quick once over (apparently I am running a fever) and telling of my story have resulted in a “here is what you had/had” a recommendation for taking Pepcid, and a prescription for a “Z Pack.” None of this will preclude me from riding tomorrow (I better get those tires inflated) though I might be consuming considerably less alcohol while taking the antibiotics (it is a conspiracy I tell you!)
I am now sitting in the Poncey-Highland San Francisco Coffee drinking some strong coffee while eating a piece of vegan carrot cake (it’s not bad), though I am quite full now…
