Last night I returned to German class. Having a month away was refreshing, but I should have done more refreshing during that time to prepare for last night. Luckily this is a for-pleasure endeavor so I wasn’t too concerned about being rusty. I smiled a bit last night when I saw my name on the list of 2014 financial donors to Goethe Institut. Speaking/Understanding German is on my Bucket List so it’s good that I help this resource remain in Atlanta for as long as I do.
In an effort to eat out less than I have been I eschewed the fair-to-midland fast food options Colony Square has to offer and ate a small snack at break time instead. Once home, at around 9:20pm, I quickly prepared a hamburger as my late-night dinner and watched some of Monday’s night’s “The Tonight Show” that I transferred to my iPad using the app I helped build for Dish Network last year. Because of the time I was very hungry, therefore the hamburger was delicious; or as I’d say in German, Lecker!
Today’s Secret Mission
Okay, it’s not really much of a secret.
Today I will be attending a focus group. The subject of the focus group is related to home repair, for which I am obviously an expert, and will last two hours. The thing that makes me chuckle and feel saddened is that the focus group will be held in the building next to the one in which I used to work. Geez, I miss working in that part of town…
Because attending the focus group will interfere with part of my normal work day I will be doing some coding at home tonight. Of course if there will be a George’s contingency tonight I could possibly have my arm twisted into having a pint before beginning my work night.
My Valentine’s Day Snubbing
Long time readers of InsideThePerimeter know all too well that it has been a very long time since I’ve been in a relationship. With no prospects on the horizon and the thought of Valentine’s Day being on a Saturday this year I think that I am going to attend the performance of “Waffle Palace” at Horizon Theatre that night. Sure there will be couples in attendance, as there always
is are (something about subject/verb agreement…), but at least it won’t be a lovey-dovey thing for them to do.
If you are considering seeing “Waffle Palace” you may want to buy tickets today between noon and 5:00pm because they will be discounted during that time. While I can’t find reference about the sale on their site I did receive an email yesterday announcing it.
