Both of these dominated my evening last night.
Because of the rain and Atlanta’s insufferable drivers traffic was hideous last night. I tried waiting it out but at 7:30pm I was over being in the office so I ventured out. At first I thought I’d won the traffic game, but I inevitable came upon an accident on I-85 that brought us all to a standstill. Admittedly those in the accident had much more with which to be concerned than I did, but it really did hose my commute.
I had eaten dinner at the office, because it was too cold to go out for drinks/dinner and I didn’t want to consume the calories last night. Of course my challenge once at the house was to not eat/drink anything else. I eventually lost when I ate a handful of chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds. This snack was purchased from the great post-Christmas clearance aisle at Target; I keep them in my freezer because it makes them harder to eat, which means that I eat fewer in one sitting.
Even though it’s Friday I have nothing on my agenda. I’m contemplating eating a nice dinner out, blowing most of the $100 bill that I was awarded on Wednesday night. One of my unpublished goals for 2015 (actually all of my goals for this year are currently unpublished) is to eat at restaurants at which I’ve never previously eaten. Given that I seem to eat at the same ten places this shouldn’t be a hard goal to achieve.
The rest of the weekend holds just as much certainty as tonight — none. About the only thing I am certain to be doing this weekend is watching the Packers v. Seahawks game, pulling for the Pack in order to make my trip to Raleigh at the start of next month a lot more fun. (For those who don’t know: The Raleigh Royalty are Packers fans, and since I will be in Raleigh on the day of the Super Bowl it will be more fun if the Packers are playing in the game.)
Blogging Note: I do not get MLK Jr Day off, so expect a blog post on Monday. Hell, perhaps I’ll do some interesting things this weekend so that I have something about which to blog.
