Boy howdy did I sleep this morning. I woke up at my appointed time of 5am, downloaded and watched last night’s Top Chef finale on my iPad, and then promptly went back to sleep until 8am. Sucks that I will have to work late tonight, but at least the morning traffic wasn’t too bad.
Some Luck Of The Irish
Traffic after work was horrible yesterday. In an effort to reduce the amount of stress that I would feel driving to Cameli’s for trivia I thought about doing a little shopping at Barnes & Noble. My shopping didn’t last too long, I already own more books than I will be able to read in the remainder of my life. So I did what comes naturally to me, I went in to a bar/restaurant, Chuy’s in this case. Chuy’s, a Tex-Mex restaurant was eerily empty on St Patrick’s Day, which of course was perfect for me. I filled a basket of complementary nachos from their happy hour bar and saddled up to the bar for a beer. In my hour or so there I watched the world go by, including the return of a pretty blonde young lady who returned to retrieve the shopping bags she had accidentally left behind. Upon her return I heard her talk about the man sitting next to her who would not stop hitting on her. Sometimes I appreciate being the lonesome loser who never has the courage to pester women as this guy apparently had. Sure, I’ll never go on another date (apparently), but this may be for the betterment of Society.
Traffic wasn’t great when I left Chuy’s but if I had any hope of making it to trivia on time I had to leave when I did. I made it to Little Five Points in ample time and performed my duty of answer runner dutifully; this was the only thing I was needed to do in order to help us win.
Low Key Friday
I will be doing nothing tonight — and enjoying it. Well, that’s not 100% accurate.
In addition to studying some German I also need to charge my camera batteries for the photowalk I’ll be doing with ITP-Reader Stacy and Phil, an old common friend who I’ve not seen in about a year. We plan to do this even if the predicted rain arrives, though I’m sure we’ll reconsider if lightning is involved.
I’ll also be readying the bicycle for my return to its saddle. My knee is 98% better and I need to get back to turning the pedals.
Additionally I will get the hour back I lost last Sunday with the time change by not having an episode of The Amazing Race to watch since it’s currently bumped off the air by the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
A Stacy Kind Of Weekend
I’ve mentioned tomorrow’s photowalk, which will be prefaced with lunch.
On Sunday I’ll be doing a midtown double. I’ll be attending the First Annual Bach’s Birthday Bas at the Goethe Zentrum early in the afternoon and from there I will be headed to get a haircut from a different Stacy, whose shop is located in Ansley Mall.
Have a great weekend friends!
