My journey last night from Perimeter Mall to Ponce City Market was as frustrating as Atlanta commutes can get. While I didn’t time it, I’d venture to guess that it took me over ninety minutes to make the drive.
When I (finally) arrived I had just enough time to order and wolf down a chicken sandwich, mac & cheese, and a Terrapin Hi-5 before the posted start time for last night’s Evernote presentation.
Of course the presentation started late… (see also: “Paulie’s Pet Peeves”)
After hearing 45 minutes of babble from a panel of “productivity experts”, which provided such insight as “It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get up.”, I left.
“I found an hour! I can accomplish so many things!” I thought to myself. Except I really couldn’t. I did manage to talk to my mother on the phone last night, which included being told that my father’s last-surviving sibling had died (in 2014, and she found out from my brother yesterday!). I then turned my sights on watching some television in my iPad before I did a little German homework.

Speaking of “death”, I discovered that the Anker charger that I’ve used at the office every day since I bought it a few years ago, has stopped working.
As a geek I’ve long-since dealt with the demise of devices, but every time a device with no moving parts kicks it I get somewhat disappointed.
“Different” Weekend Ahead
I’ve packed my dirty laundry into the M6 this morning with designs of doing laundry tonight before eating a Buford Hwy dinner. This course may veer if the lure of after-work beer is waved in my face.
Tomorrow I will be at Goethe Zentrum from 9:30-3:30 for a “German for Travelers” one-day course. Tomorrow night I will be going to Synchronicity Theatre for the first time. I was lured into buying a ticket for Diary of a Madman when I saw an advertisement for it not he back of a MARTA bus.
Of course I can’t find this play mentioned on Synchronicity Theatre’s website, so maybe I’m the mad man?
On Sunday I am going to try and get in a long bike ride, some house chores, and cook a pizza with store-bought dough.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
