It’s only Monday morning and I’m already overstressed. I could really use a relaxing four-day, no-thought-of-work weekend.
Probably Just Enough
I certainly did not ace my German test on Saturday afternoon. I’m hopeful that I at least did enough to get a passing mark.
I was nervous, being unprepared does that to me, and to make matters worse we started with the speaking section of the exam, I was lead to believe that this would be the final portion, and I had to go first for each new section of the speaking section. Ugh.
Over. Done with. That’s the best I can say.
Better Than Just Enough
After de-stressing some on Saturday I drove over the the Beam Theater to watch East Atlanta’s own Guerrilla Theatre. As you probably know, performing in the play, and adaptation of “The Love of Three Oranges”, were ITP-Reader Betsy (whose birthday last Thursday I failed to acknowledge; I’m a shitty friend) and Andrea. I enjoyed myself and was glad to be able to catch their final performance of the play.
More Than Enough
On Sunday morning I drove up to the lavenderia to beat the local crowd. I was done with my wash by 9:30am and wanted to reward myself with breakfast.
Like most pretentious ITPers I wanted to eat at one of the many snooty breakfast restaurants. However, if you know me you know of my complete disdain for waiting in lines. So I went corporate — International House of Pancakes (note: I am old, I shan’t say “IHOP”).
As you probably also know about me, I have an amazing knack for finding and ordering the most calorie-laden meal on the menu. Yesterday’s was a chicken fried steak with two eggs, hash browns, and two pancakes.
Yep, the whole thing went down my gullet. Suffice to say I wasn’t hungry again yesterday.
I met the boss at the new Lucky’s Burger and Brew in Emory Village for a few late-afteroon beers before returning home and passing out at an inordinately early hour, perhaps 8pm, probably because I’d been up since 5am.
Hope yours was a wonderful weekend.
