Last night I was in a condition where going to the gym and doing any sort of exercise would have been bad news. I was tired, achey, and in a foul mood. Though it wasn’t the best thing for my body I waited out (most) traffic by having dinner at Tilted Kilt, and using up my $10 of soon-to-be-expired credit. With one beer I had a burger and a side salad (!), though I made the rookie mistake of not asking for the salad dressing on the side, so I’m not sure how “healthy” this salad was for me.
Upon arriving home I did a quick trip around the house picking up a couple of the (far too) many things on my floors before giving in to the call of the warm covers of my bed. In bed I watched Tuesday night’s “The Tonight Show” on my iPad before falling asleep.
Going to sleep early would have been a great thing had I not awoken at 3:00am, and then again at 4:00am, and then again at 5:45am. With my last awaking I decided to get out of bed, shower, and beat a little traffic.
Another Top Chef Is In The Books
Though I’m certain that the outcome of Top Chef Boston has been known for months, the final episode of this series aired last night. Because I no longer have a functioning satellite tv system, the dish is misprinted and I’m getting ready to oust the soon-to-be-obsoleted settop box from the house, I wasn’t able to watch the final episode in real time.
I could have done so had I gone to The Family Dog, which is owned by one of this season’s contestants Ron Eyester, because they were having a viewing party that also had another one of this season’s contestants in attendance. But I chose against this, assuming the place would be packed.
Instead, the finale was available on iTunes when I awoke at 4:00am, so I downloaded and watched the finale before falling back asleep.
Even though I doubt that any of you out there watched this season of Top Chef I won’t provide any spoilers.
I have finally finished reading English Grammar for Students of German: The Study Guide for Those Learning German (English Grammar Series).
Now that I am done with this 167 page book, I will start reading it again today.
It is my goal to read three chapters a day, there are forty-nine in total, and continuing this seventeen-day cycle until I am completely comfortable with English Grammar and how those rules translate to German. In essence I will probably be reading this book the rest of my life…
Something Newish Tonight?
Depending on how I feel later today I might attend my first North Atlanta iOS Developers Meetup, which is conveniently held two blocks from my office. I’m not so keen on hearing about this month’s topic, SpriteKit, but am interested to see what sort of turnout these meetings get.
Tonight is also the monthly meetup night for CocoaHeads Atlanta, but that occurs down in Kirkwood at Big Nerd Ranch’s new office, and I doubt that I will be able to make it back down near my hood in time tonight.
Of course as of now all I feel like doing is taking a nap.
