I had a decent 26 mile ride last night. Three other gents and I tooled around at a pace faster than I’ve been able to obtain on my own. By the time I arrived home, past 9:00pm, I was bushed but still had to put some sort of food into my stomach; I chose macaroni and cheese.
Let me tell you how hard it is not to eat the entire box’s worth of macaroni and cheese when you are hungry… With my half-box (still too much food) I drank about a half glass of red wine. Yes, I was so tired that I couldn’t even finish an entire glass of wine.
Ye Olde Shitty Commute
The reason the blog is late this morning is two-fold.
First, I fell back asleep this morning and didn’t get out of the house until after 8:30am.
If you’ve ever looked at Google Maps for Atlanta’s traffic after 8:30am you’ll know that getting from East Atlanta to Perimeter Mall at that time is an exercise in frustration. To calm my nerves I ate an amazing breakfast this morning at Folk Art in Inman Park. My breakfast more than ruined the discipline from last night, but given how late I ate breakfast it is also serving as my lunch today.
I couldn’t help but snap a photo.
Gone But Not Forgotten
In the past two days I’ve been surprised by the closure of two establishments. Last night as I turned my ride back toward the office I noticed that Peachtree Bikes closed the Hildebrand Street location. However, have moved to a new location further down Roswell Road, gloriously inside the perimeter. 🙂
This morning I noticed that Morelli’s has closed its Edgewood Retail District location. Thankfully the ITP Estate is close enough to the original location for me to get an ice cream fix every once in awhile.
I’ll must now go until tomorrow. Please don’t forget about me.
