Today is Groundhog Day. I feel as if I’ve been living Groundhog Day in the worst way since DJT’s inauguration.
Another Bucket List Item Checked
Many years ago I spent a day with a great friend Stacy (who now lives in California with her perfect mate Andy and their daughter) riding bikes and stopping for beers. Yesterday I finally got around to resurrecting this notion of a great day.
I took off in the direction of Decatur, and after following the Stone Mountain Path out to Avondale Estates I veered right and rode through uncharted territories. Once I finally consulted Google Maps I realized that I was not far away from Oakhurst, so I decided to stop at Universal Joint to sit outside and have a beer (or perhaps two).
After all that interested me at Universal Joint had disappeared I mounted my mountain bike and rode the remaining four miles of my journey back to the ITP Estate. I burned off more calories than I consumed, but the day was still young.
Top (Indian) Chef
Last night I went over to Betsy’s house for a little Top Chef viewing. Instead of cooking, we took the opportunity to have Indian food delivered; man it was good.
Side note: I completely understand why I am not losing weight, even though I am exercising daily. This morning I weighed in at 221.8 pounds. If I want to get serious I need to give up the beer and cut way back on the food intake. DANGEN!
Once caught up on Top Chef I returned home, where I finished off the food I’d not eaten at Betsy’s. Have I mentioned my drinking and eating problem? Yep, 221.8 pounds this morning indeed.
What Are We Going To Do Today, Brain?
Same thing we do every day, Pinky…
Actually, I’m (sorta) changing things up a bit. At 11:00am I have another opportunity to chat with a member of the company I am hoping will offer me a position.
From that location I will drive the M6 up to Brookhaven, specifically Town Brookhaven, where I hope to knock out a few things such as making a return to LA Fitness, walking around Costco for awhile (purchasing only those things I need and are not perishable), and then using up some of the credit I have with Lucky’s Burger and Brew (recall that the Emory location closed, so I need to go to Brookhaven). I will probably also be making a return trip to Library Life, something I’ve not done in many weeks now, by camping out for awhile at the library in either Brookhaven or Chamblee. Different, yet similar, the perfect modus operandi for Groundhog Day.
Finally tonight I will be packing up a bag for a weekend journey that will begin tomorrow. Tune in tomorrow to find out where I am going, though if you understand my travel patterns it won’t be hard for you to guess today.
Here’s to hoping whatever groundhog you place your faith in comes out and sees no shadow.
