I managed to join my coworker Al for a ride (with little silence) last night. We pedaled over to Free-Flite in Sandy Springs and joined up with four other men, we’ve lost the women, for our Wednesday night route. In total I got in about 26 miles last night.
For the most part I held my own, though I suffered mightily on the Mt Paran Pkwy climb, experiencing some knee pain in the process.
Al and I were about a mile away from the office when we started feeling the rain, and about a quarter-mile away when the skies opened widely and dumped copious amounts of rain upon us.
I drove in and out of the rain to get back to East Atlanta and managed to unload the M6 and get my mail before the rain arrived there.
“Erbsen auf halb 6”
In the mail last night was the DVD of Erbsen auf halb 6 (Peas at 5:30) that I ordered from Germany a few weeks ago. This film was mentioned in my German workbook and we discussed it a couple of weeks ago. Since the Goethe Zentrum didn’t have a copy in their library, and I found nowhere from where I could stream the movie, I purchased it from a German vendor.
I’ve still yet to get a multi-region DVD player, so I will have to wait to watch this flick, given that it’s Region 6 encoded.
Once I get my fill of this film I’ll donate this copy to Goethe Zentrum so that future German A2.4 students can check it out from the library.
Eternity + (1 x Week) = Eternity
It seems like an eternity since I last participated in Team Trivia. I will be adding another week to eternity tonight.
Instead tonight I will be going to the Atlanta chapter of General Assembly for a presentation “Evernote Presents: Productivity Hacks For Innovators On The Go”.
My first productivity hack will be figuring out how to park at Ponce City Market, where General Assembly is located, and not charged $15. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate paying for parking?
