That must mean that there are only two more working days in my week! Yep, in addition to getting a much needed haircut tomorrow I shall be returning to the office to try and perform Herculean coding tricks to compensate for underlying sub-system changes that have occurred since I joined this project in February.
For fun I’ll probably be back in the office on Sunday working until I drive up to Greenville, SC where I will be attending [360|iDev min] on Monday and Tuesday.
File Under: I Need To Return To Better Filing
I recently received an email from the Hertz Stage at the Alliance Theatre thanking me for returning as a subscriber. In the olden days the day I received my theatre tickets I would have put in a calendar entry for each show to remind myself of my commitment. The email should have prompted me to double-check my tickets, but it did not.
As an afterthought yesterday I dug into my briefcase to get my tickets only to find that my ticket for the theatre’s current play, “Native Guard”, was for last night! Fortunately for me Alliance has a very liberal exchange policy for its subscribers, so I was able to exchange last night’s ticket for one next Wednesday night.
Well, That Was Unexpected
Last night the boss and I got in a 5.4 mile walk around the Perimeter Mall area before returning to Lucky’s (aka “The new Taco Mac”) for dinner and drinks. I must admit that I was the instigator since I had walked off my lunch and was desiring a beer for my efforts. What I didn’t expect was:
- Neither of our friendly female bartenders would be working. Blake, the man tending bar is a nice guy and knows us, but is not nearly as fun to talk to as Lila or Mai.
- Some sales reps from Bird Dog Whiskey would show up and buy people at the bar, the boss and me included, two shots — a peppermint moonshine, and a blackberry whiskey — both of which were lost on my beer/wine palate.
- As the Packers were destroying the Vikings a strange kinship occurred between some people who were also sitting at the bar; causing me to stay out much later than I had anticipated. I was home around 11:00pm.
All in all it was an unusual and entertaining evening, but it made for a shorter-than-desired night for sleeping.
Ich Muss Deutsch Studieren!
Tonight I must remind myself that I am enrolled in the second German course at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta. The course started last Tuesday, so I am already behind, therefore this weekend I must make time to review the information that I learned in the first course as well as read ahead into what the class would have discussed on Tuesday night.
That’s all for today.
