I don’t subscribe to “Black Friday” nor “Cyber Monday”. They are both just marketing bullshit to me. I did my best to quit social media for entire weekend; I lasted until Sunday.
Saturday was a self-imposed day of being alone. I don’t like being single, especially around the holidays. I decided that I shouldn’t spring my bad mood on anyone else, so I stayed in all day. I took the opportunity to cook up a mess of food that I had in the house — a pork tenderloin, leftover vegetables (carrots, yams, parsnips), a box of stuffing, the makings of a green bean casserole, and a can of cranberry jelly — and celebrated “Selfsgiving”. With dinner I watched Up. I’ve always wanted the relationship depicted in “Up”.
My original plan for Sunday was to go to the Black Sheep Hash, after all the start was a mere few miles from the ITP Estate. I wasn’t thrilled with the special instructions to bring flashlights, but I was still going to go. My plan changed when I received a better offer from ITP-Reader Stacy who invited me to join her and Aron at Red Brick Brewing. I even performed a good deed when I found someone’s debit card at an ATM on Collier Road and called the bank to ensure that the card was canceled; the card’s owner had already done the deed.
On Sunday afternoon I was feeling bothered with my weight so I decided to do something about it. I went out for a three-mile walk and in the process passed this:
“What I Hate About Atlanta, Or Perhaps ‘Progress'” (Atlanta, Georgia, United States)
From the looks of the mailbox I am sure that 1966 Braeburn Cir SE was run down, but this city loves demolishing old houses and putting multiple houses in their place. Soon Atlanta will have been a city in an urban forest.
I Almost Have A Useable Dining Room Table
I’m finally making progress on cleaning out the ITP Estate. In doing so I am a few items away from having a cleared dining room table, you know that place I am supposed to be able to eat a meal.
If You Want A Christmas Card, Make Sure I Have Your Mailing Address
Perhaps I will use the cleaned-off dining room table to write out my Christmas cards. This will happen this week.
Back At The Library
When you read this I should be ensconced at the Dekalb Public Library in Decatur. I need to return the two movies that I watched over the weekend, as well as dedicate my day to learning Swift programming. Breakfast was a highly-unhealthy doughnut from Revolution Doughnuts, and I am trying to decide to which Decatur restaurant I will walk for lunch. Decisions. Decisions.
Hope that you had a wonderful weekend.
