Whew, what a day yesterday was. It started slowly, but then ramped up and kicked my ass in the end.
I started my day by driving up to Cobb county. The plan was to meet ITP-Reader Barb in Marietta Square for lunch. After doing a bit of calculations I gambled that I would be able to drive up to Cobb county and visit a branch of my bank to close out my business account before lunch. And I did!
I drove from East Cobb to Marietta Square and found parking in the Square. I ate a lovely lunch with Barb at The Marietta Local; I opted for the meatloaf sandwich with fries.
After lunch I wound my way out of Cobb and up gambled that I could renew my license at the DMV before my scheduled call at 15:00. And I did!
I was out of the DMV within ninety minutes with a temporary license, the real one will be mailed to me. The only downside is that the depiction of me (jeeze I am an unusual-looking man) is now twenty years older than the one on the license I surrendered. News flash: I am not as young looking nor slender as I was at 31.
It was also funny to see via Twitter that celebrity (Top Chef) chef Kevin Gillespie (Gunshow and Revival) was in the very same building yesterday, just a few hours earlier.
With an updated license in hand, well, in wallet, I drove over to Chamblee to do my laundry. While doing laundry I had my call with yet another recruiter, and now I have an in-person meeting with he and his client (one whose name you recognize, but is unfortunately a little further away than my northern boundary of Buckhead) which is to occur on Friday.
After I finished laundry I decided to attempt to avoid what appeared to be shitty traffic by working out at the Brookhaven LA Fitness. I put in thirty minuets on an elliptical and thirty more on a stationary bike.
Of course I had to ruin the workout at Lucky’s… It was trivia night so I sat at the bar and listened to the questions, answering (most of) them inside my head. By halftime I had had enough and decided to leave. Because Lucky’s was so crowded due to trivia I opted to not even try to use my $20 gift card.
By the time I got home I was beat. I put the laundry away and wrote this blog post before passing out. I will need my rest for tomorrow, today as you read this, yet another hectic day in my life.
Make yours a great day.
