I routinely pack my schedule so full that I forget when I have things scheduled. I do this as a substitute for being in a relationship.
My whole weekend outlook changed when I realized that I had a ticket for a play at Theatrical Outfit on Saturday night. Gone was my plan to do strenuous yardwork Saturday for fear that I would be too sleepy to make the show. Perhaps I would have been better off if I had.
Even though I am currently not listed in the playbill as a supporter, and I am, I usually love the plays at Theatrical Outfit. Let’s just say that “The Dancing Hankerchief” wasn’t written for me.
“Thank you for supporting a musical with very few spoken words” said the man before the play began. Uh oh, I knew that I was in trouble. As I sat there wondering if there was an intermission, and if I would return to the theater if one existed, the play ended. I didn’t record the running time but my most generous guess would be that it was 75 minutes long, which was more than enough for me. I exited the theater at 8:45pm and it was still not dark outside; though not as jarring as leaving a bar or strip club when it’s still light outside, it was a weird feeling.
The evening wasn’t a total loss however, as I ate a good meal at Par Bar before going to the theater. I had a few beers with my “A Hot Mess” sandwich, exchanged a few jokes with a very good waitress, and used up my $21 rewards card in the process. I also learned that I a, not the target demographic for a band called “Ghost”, at least not going by the appearpance of those waiting in line to enter The Tabernacle.

“Sunday Starter” (Decatur, Georgia, United States)
On Sunday morning I had to perform the errands I didn’t accomplish on Saturday, namely getting gas for the M6 and going to Lowe’s. Because I wanted to go to QT, the one on Lawrenceville Highway is the closest to the ITP Estate, I decided that I should stop into Waffle House on my way to Lowe’s in Edgewood Retail District. You know, if you start your Sunday at 7:00am you can get in and out of all three of these relatively quickly.
Earn My Meals
My goal starting today, since I failed this weekend, is to “earn my meals”. In an effort to reverse my weight-gaining trend I will be forcing myself to perform some exercise daily in order to justify the food I shove into my pie-hole. I have roughly two weeks before traveling to Europe and I would love to reduce my weight and increase my physical abilities a little before going there.
Tonight’s Calendar Event
After work I will be headed to Ponce City Market for “Bike Tech Nerd Meet Up & Networking” at Gerneral Assembly. I assumed my attendance to an event with such a title would be mandatory since I have interest in both topics, and am always looking for networking opportunities.
Here is the synopsis from the General Assembly website:

Yeah, this seems like it’s up my alley.

2017 has turned out to be a tough year for my friends with dogs. Yesterday another friend was lost, as the Raleigh Royalty had to put down Sugar.
