It’s What Time?

Apparently I can’t shake living on European time, not that my sleep habits in the States have ever been that great. As I write this post it’s currently 3:30am and I have been awake for at least ninety minutes.

[time passes]

I am now finishing today’s post at 6:35am, having gotten no sleep since starting it nearly three hour ago. In the interim I updated/backed-up the software on my laptop, listened to podcasts, shaved/showered, and drove to work.

Today may be tough.

“Interesting”
At least for now I still have a job at “XYZ Corp”. Some people, including the other iOS developer, have decided to work elsewhere.

In the next two weeks I will have a lot to learn, and until another developer is hired I will have the entire weight of the app on my shoulders.

Now in addition to all of the other things on my summer agenda, this weekend I will start learning Swift in earnest and practicing all of the bullshit tasks asked in interviews. Why? Juuuuust in case.

“Interesting” indeed.

ITP Flickr Pic
“Dreikönigskirche” (Frankfurt, Germany)
Dreikönigskirche - Frankfurt, Germany
I have five shots of Dreikönigskirche (Three Kings Church) in my photo library, but this is the only one that I shot where the sun broke through the clouds and illuminated it nicely. I like it…

Theoretically this will be the last of the European photos to be posted to the blog, which means that I better find some photos to shoot this weekend.

Always. Be. Closing.
Since the 1980s I’ve stated that “Glengarry Glen Ross” is my favorite movie. I loved the cast, I loved the tense plot, and I loved that it were essentially only four sets used for the entire movie.

In 2005 I traveled to New York to see a revival of “Glengarry Glen Ross”, starring Alan Alda, performed on Broadway.

In 2007 (maybe, but it doesn’t seem that long ago in my mind!) I saw a production of “Glengarry Glen Ross” performed on the Hertz Stage here in Atlanta.

It didn’t take me long after receiving the email notification to buy a ticket for
“Glengarry Glen Ross” at Pinch ‘N’ Ouch Theatre on Friday, August 11th.

Miscellanea
Consider yourself lucky, today’s post originality was going to be a post-mortem recap of my trip. 😉

– For last night’s dinner I made biscuits (from a can) but spiced them up by sprinkling garlic powder and sesame seeds on them prior to putting them in the toaster over; it was quite a success.
– I saw former-ITP-Reader “Martha” out running this morning; to be clear she was running, I was driving to work.
– My exercise routine begins again tomorrow. I may mount my bike on the trainer and ride along with le Tour.
– I guess Public Enema decided not to have “Cheesy Yellow Tour Party” this year. Pity, I enjoyed those and was certain that this was r the cute woman would notice me! (yeah, right)
– I will also restart “Get Rid of Shit” mode this weekend. You never know when I will do something rash like decide to move.

I am frustrated (for many reasons) because I know there are at least three other things I wanted to include in this list but have forgotten. Oh well, if I remember them I will add them in comments. Stupid sleep deprivation…

Have a great weekend all. Perhaps I will see some of you out and about.

Cheers,
Paulie [eatl/ga]

  1. Oh yeah, I might finally get to see Los Lobos in concert! Once again they are supposed to be playing at LEAF.

    7/23 is the Cheesy party – I thought Katherine texted or emailed you.

    “Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…”

    Problems with one of the HVAC units at the “HamWithCam Estate”. We have, errrr….four total. Unit is blowing 75F inside. Outside ambient is 75F. I should be getting around 20F gain. No signs of icing (typical of low refrigerant). Call in. Not “critical”, my area of the house (basement).

    In other news…
    I have no other news.

    I’d share 2-3 of my “professional quality” photographs, except for that pesky “URL moderation thing”. 🙂

    You can find 16,000+ of them on flickr. I am “HamWithCam” (duh).

    Oh, a friend of a friend just bought a new (and very nice) bicycle. Marin hybrid deal, like 1,000 speeds, hydraulic brakes, etc. Boo yah. Briefly considered dragging one of my bikes out (30-year-old Raleigh Super Course “wall hanger” or relatively modern rideable K2 mountain-ish bike) and hitting the beltline, etc. Fortunately, I sat down until the feeling passed.

    Today’s Trivia: Today is (apparently) the 50th-anniversary of the ATM. I have never used an ATM. Ever.

    Have a fun weekend es 73 de JG/HamWithCam

  4. Remembered another one!

    While in Germany I couldn’t remember why I didn’t make a trip there in 2015. I couldn’t recall what my “big trip” was that year. I remembered Portland, but nothing else. And then last night I recalled that I was supposed to ride RAGBRAI but came down with that stupid bacterial disease.

    Why the Tour party is the last day I’m not sure, but I’m planning on being there.

    Door on cabinet looks good at the Ben Hilton. Grass looks good despite having to quickly finish in the rain.

    I let the dogs out at 7 or so this morning and Debbie says as I come back to bed, “don’t leave them out, they’ve been running away.” So I call… and call and call some more. Finally after a half hour and Debbie driving and me on a bike, they come trotting down the road. WTF,O?!? Damn dogs.
