Welcome back to Paulie’s Bite-Sized Blog.
Good Time At The Old Ball Game
On Sunday I joined some work friends and attended the Clemson v. Georgia Tech baseball game. My boss is a Clemson grad, and the other coworkers who went are Georgia Tech grads. I wore my University of Florida hat, of course, just to be a royal pain in the ass.
The weather was fantastic. The contest was evenly-matched, won by Georgia Tech in the bottom of the tenth inning. And the post-game beers at Cypress Street were cheap, delicious, and overly-plentiful.
All plans to either mow the lawn or wash the car on Sunday were destroyed by the latter.
Monday, Boring Monday
I woke up, worked hard, put out my scheduled software build, watched Mad Men on my iPad, went to sleep. My Monday in one sentence.
German Class Tonight
Building on the frustrations and lessons of last Friday’s Deutsches FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck (German Breakfast) I will be attending the third course in my “A1.4” series. Last Friday I also found out that I am not as far along as I thought I was in the German learning series; “A1.4” is the final course in the “A1” series, but not the “A” series so instead of graduating to “B1.1” next session I will be attending “A2.1”. I realize that this is only a semantic difference, but knowing that a “C” level series exists I realized just how far away I am from it. I suppose that it doesn’t matter because German language learning will be something I do for the rest of my breathing days.
Going To The Doctor Is Another
Looks like I am finally going to have to surrender and see the doctor about the “poison ivy” that I think I have on my leg and that has caused my scalp to act as a snow globe these past two weeks. I thought that I could let my body fight it off naturally, but naturally I was wrong about this.
Wee’s Little Bits
See what I did there?!?!? It’s amazing I’ve never titled a section with this yet!
On my drive into work yesterday I saw a beat-up car with a donut-spare-tire driving on the east side of 285; the temporary tag on the back of the car read “Test Drive”. I had my doubts.
On this morning’s drive I saw a Team Novo Nordisk van driving north on 400.
I’m thinking of pitching a film idea for a guy who has struggled to lose weight his entire life (basically my life story); it will be called “Desperately Seeking Losing”.
