I missed the perfect opportunity to (re)use the title “Winds Of Change” yesterday when discussing last weekend’s LEAF. Not only did the winds blow strong and often, but a handful of vendors who have been fixtures at LEAF, namely the Coffee Bus and Barley’s Pizza, weren’t present this time around.
Also for the first LEAF in my memory I did not know any of the musical performers. None, nada, zip.
You know my dislike of change…
And In The End, No Ride Last Night
I wasn’t, and still aren’t, feeling all that great. It could be a cold, see also: change of temperatures, or allergies, see also: grass, dust. Regardless I knew that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the Monday night Recovery Ride, a ride in which I can barely maintain pace when I’m feeling well. I thought about doing my own ride, but when push came to shove I chose to do nothing.
In theory I could have gone home and done all of my German homework.
Theory is so cute.
Doughnuts This Morning
Because I slept too late this morning I stopped for “breakfast” this morning. Instead of eating breakfast at Folk Art, I chose to stop into Revolution Doughnuts, mostly because the M6 was pointed in the direction of Decatur when I decided to sit out some of the morning’s shitty traffic.
I had two donuts — orange pistachio, and a maple bourbon “cro-dough” — and two cups of coffee. I will pay for my sins later by severely limiting my lunch intake today.
I’m hoping to start feeling better for German class tonight. I also plan to sign up for a one-day German course to be held this Saturday. This course will be “German Conversation for Travelers” which might be a good thing for me to refresh prior to my trip in June.
