Thankfully (for us in Atlanta) the worst of Irma is veering west, though I still have concerns about high winds and the trees that surround the ITP Estate. I’m sure that insurance will deny any claim I make to renovate my kitchen due to a tree tearing down my power line and penetrating my roof.
It appears that Irma also lost a lot of oomph by the time it reached Tampa, near where my mother lives. I’ll have to wait for her to return home and let me know that she is okay before my concerns about her are eased.
With the exception of a few hours when I met friends I expected to meet, as well as one that I hadn’t — Phil (aka “Screams Like A Girl”) — at Hopstix in Chamblee and eating a wonderful solo meal at the Chinese Food Court up there, I was at home, in front of the TV.
On Saturday morning I watched an Australian rugby match and a couple of Bundesliga soccer games. I spent nearly the entirety of yesterday watching sports, first my Bundesliga team Werder Bremen’s tie against Hertha Berlin, then part of another Bundesliga game, then the Falcons game, then part of the Atlanta United game, and then the Seahawks v. Packers game. I’d have watched the Giants v. Cowboys game too if not for feeling somewhat guilty for doing nothing else.
What? No college football? Nope, Florida’s game was canceled due to Irma and I also remembered that I have little interest watching the sport after last year’s Final Four debacle when Ohio State was invited to the tournament when they hadn’t even played for their conference championship.
Wait? What about la Vuelta a Espana? Nope, the outcome was cast and I held true to not watching it because it bored me. I understand Contador rode well on Saturday in a effort to have something to show for his final competitive event.
Going, Going, Gone?
This weekend I think that I finally completed the transfer of my InterAmericas Hash registration. I hope.
Once I am certain that the receiving party has taken ownership I will be earmarking the $199 paid to me for some other things, including making arrangements to buy a meal for ITP-Reader Barb.
Home Is Where The Work Is
I’m using the mayor’s heed to stay off the roads, as well as “XYZ Corp”‘s edict to work remotely today, to work from home. Unfortunately I planned for this and brought my laptop home with me so I will have work and not goof off all day. 😉
