I’m used to waiting for Atlanta’s traffic to subside, but I am certainly tired of doing so. Because of last night’s bad traffic, in all directions southward I might add, I did not leave the office until nearly 8:00pm. Mind you I didn’t work all that time, one of the benefits of working in an industry flooded with televisions is the ability to kill time easily. Had it not been so cold and windy I would have gone for a long walk, but alas I’m too much of a wimp.
I replayed the game this morning, watching the traffic headed north through the Connector and up too become blood read on Google Maps. As this occurred I literally said “Fuck it!” aloud and stayed in bed reading German grammar. I finally relented to the fact that I needed to come to work today around 9:00am and took the Eastern Arc of 285 to get here.
I don’t wish to continue to live like this.
Which Is Worse?
Yesterday called to City of Atlanta to find out if they have officially closed the books on Sharpened Stone. The answer? No, at least not yet. According to the post office my letter of dissolution was delivered to their office on December 16th. The woman with whom I spoke on the phone told me to keep calling back to check, and if it doesn’t happen, resubmit my paperwork. Brilliant.
Yesterday I found the collection accumulation of mail held while I was in Raleigh. Mind you, I received an email from the post office last Friday reminding me that my Mail Hold was coming to an end on Saturday, February 7th, but my local carriers took their sweet time delivering to me what they had held. This marks the second time I’ve had this experience with my local post office, the last time I had to go to the office an pick up the mail that was supposed to be delivered.
Government*, just do your goddamn job.
Cold Weekend Ahead, Snow On Presidents Day?
Yikes! Although I know what is predicted rarely occurs…
Tomorrow night I’ll be joining ITP-Reader Barb for dinner at the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club before heading to Horizon Theatre for their performance of “Waffle Palace”. I’ve eaten at the Yacht Club many times and have seen “Waffle Palace” once before, and am looking forward to repeating each tomorrow.
On Sunday I may be going to Lenox Mall for Caffeine and Exotics, before coming into the office to do some work in an uninterrupted fashion. I can’t seem to get any real work done during normal work hours because my days are currently constantly interrupted by meetings and whatnot. With any luck Sunday will mark the last weekend day I put in for this project.
Have a great weekend friends!
* – I know that the United States Post Office is officially a private business and not part of the US Government, but you’d never be able to tell by their attitude.
