Not All Plans Go To Plan

My calendar contained a dinner meetup last night. I sent a text to my dinnermate but never heard back. Fearing that the person would go to the restaurant under the assumption that a plan had been made, I drove to the restaurant, found street parking, and went inside. The place was crowded, the bar was full, and the host told me that there was an approximate thirty minute wait to get a table. I turned around and left the building. Instead i chose to drive all the way home and save the money I would have spent eating out.

Had to dig into the recent archive for a photo today. I took this while up in North Carolina for LEAF.

My Last Class Of B1
Tonight is my tenth and final class of German B1.4, and marks my completion of the B1 level. I will have nearly a month, which will contain a trip to Germany, before attending my first B1 “Bridge Course”.

Starting in July I will be preparing for the B1 certificate test being offered in Atlanta this Fall.

Eleven Years Ago Today
Eleven years ago today I was interested in someone and made the decision to show up to the end of the “Chicks No Dicks” hash at The Graveyard Tavern in East Atlanta to see her. To my dismay I was summarily booed out of the bar by the hashers.

To add injury to insult, that was also the day I contracted one of the worst cases of food poisoning that i have ever suffered, compliments of Lettice Surprise You, where I had eaten lunch that day.

June 6, 2006, or, 06/06/06 which seems a fitting day for all of this bad shit to have happened to me. Things certainly didn’t go to p,an on that day.

Eleven years? Where has the time gone?

    Sounds like Lettice Surprise You certainly surprised you! I’ve never eaten at any of those places. Do they still exist?

    I’m really sorry yesterday got all turned about. It was a rough day. I was sans computer AND phone all day and it really made me realize: holy crap. I really have no idea how to reach out to anyone should this ever happen again. I really need to get a phone to plug into my landline should I ever need it. At least then I could have called information to get in touch with you or something.

    Today’s the anniversary of the first drive-in movie theater. We used to go growing up…I have never been to Starlight here! Maybe that would be a fun thing to plan. 🙂

    Ah, Chicks No Dicks hash. Are we still doing those? Or Dicks No Chicks? I think I may have done one way back in the day. I don’t understand folks having issues with someone showing up at the end, especially at a public place. End at someone’s home if you want it to remain penis free. 😉

      All’s good. I was thinking about what would happen if I lost all access to my contacts app. I might have to call Information (does that still exist?), to call people.

      I think there was only one “Dicks No Chicks” hash. One was enough for us. 😉

    I took a half day off yesterday and met Debbie for lunch. I was almost late, as when I was heading South on 85, just as I passed exit 47, the traffic stopped. I decided I was still close enough to the ramp to do a little backing up and take the exit. No harm, no foul. The work on the new exit at Poplar Rd. continues and should be complete by sometime this fall. It will certainly make access to the hospital easier and take some of the load off Exit 47.

    And my prize for doing next to nothing yesterday is vertigo this morning. Not a bad case, just annoying. Blech.

    On I-20 almost to Rutledge, I feel I’ve been this way before.
    We get to go past, to the Warrenton exit, then head south.

    We still have a landline, when I have to work from home, I like it, I really don’t want some work people to have my cell#.
    From the FB, sounds like it was a little wet riding again today.
