Today is my brother’s birthday. ITP-Reader “Ronnie”, your card is in the mail. I hope that you have a great day, brother.
I am up in Raleigh now. My travel yesterday could not have gone smoother; the MARTA train arrived at the platform exactly as I did; there was not much of a delay at security; I ate a filling Cuban sandwich at Pappi’s; my plane was not full and left on time; my coworker was at the airport when I arrived; I was given a rental car with a Fulton County license plate.
Being the senior person on this trip I took control of the dinner situation by dragging my coworker, who I have come to find out is a non-drinker, to my favorite watering hole / bar-restaurant – Flying Saucer. He seemed to like the food just fine, and I was pleased with the Reuben sandwich that I consumed with my two beers.
I am now Amazing Race: Season 2 compliant. Even though the hotel’s wifi is less-than-ideal I managed to stream the final 27 minutes that I had remaining after yesterday’s trainer session. Season 2 had its moments but seemed to suffer a bit of a sophomore slump. After seeing the number of height-related challenges in Season 2 it’s a damn good thing that I wasn’t a contestant.
Speaking of exercise, I shall get no more than what standing on my feet for seven hours will provide today. I have packed some exercise clothes, perhaps I will use the hotel’s teeny workout room tomorrow morning.
Time for me to get ready for the career fair. Type at you all tomorrow.
