Last night’s ride, ~24 miles, was good but not transforming. It felt good to get some exercise, to the point where I was so exhausted that I slept through last night’s rain, but there was just enough anxiety with cars along the ride to lessen its mental restorative powers.
And That’s My Night!
Left work at 6pm (after being here for 11.5 hours), rode to the ride, did the ride, rode back to the office, drove home (arrive at 9:00pm), unloaded the car, hung my damp clothes to dry, ate a “dinner” of a hunk of bread smothered with butter and a 7.5oz Coke, and then passed out on the bed.
Showing My Support Through Spending
Did you know that Amazon, perhaps only to Prime Members?, offers the ability for you to choose a non-profit that will receive a tiny portion of many of the things you buy on Amazon? ‘Tis true. Two weeks ago I found out that I could select “Friends of Goethe” as my beneficiary and have done so toot-suite. The only catch to this plan is that you have to start your shopping using the URL smile.amazon.com instead of the normal www.amazon.com. I find this to be a small price to pay in order to divert a small portion of what I spend to the Goethe Zentrum in Atlanta.
Speaking of German, but not in it, I received the textbook for my next course in the mail yesterday. The USPS was more successful than UPS in locating my office apparently. Now all I have to do is shell out the registration fee for the next course.
If At First You Don’t Succeed
I’m going to try to leave early today, hell, I was in the office at 5:45am. I have some errands to run today (see yesterday’s post) as well as some new initiatives to launch (ooooh, fancy talk…).
Tonight I will be trivia playing with ITP-Reader Stacy and Aron. The plan is to walk from Stacy’s midtown abode to the Corner Tavern on Edgewood. Due to the nature of the hour at which we will finish playing trivia and the parts of town that lie between Corner Tavern and Stacy’s we’ll be using Lyft to return. This is set to be my first Lyft ride, mostly because I heard of Uber (the now-German-learner in my finds it hard not to type “Über”) first and have always used its service in times of need.
