Current Status: “Monk Complete”

In other news… I somehow managed to salvage an Instant Pot recipe that I completely misread, and my car reccy for next Monday’s hash went horribly. Win some, lose some.

    I’ve found car reccying to almost always be a problem. Really awesome in theory, totally not so much in practice. Well, unless you want a total road rage.

    • I tend to agree. I was on limited time, on an empty stomach and wanted to check out a few spots I’ve never previously used.

      Waschsalon day and some of the roads around it have “No Parking” signs. Hollywood has been a blessing and a curse.

        Can you do the hash in midtown somewhere – so you could reccy during lunch? I suppose finding an ending is the hardest part. (hint – then I’d be more likely to be able to make it)

        • Stacy says:

          Endings aren’t too bad anymore now that Mondays are pay-you’re-own. (They are, right? So hares don’t have to negotiate a beer deal anymore?) I’ve always found it tougher to find a start. Unless you’re ITP. Then it’s “Edgewood/Candler Park or MARTA station.” 😉 (did I guess right, Paulie?)

          Dang, now I’m kind of jonesin’ to lay trail again. I just hate not having a co-hare.

        • Mondays are now $1 to hash, pay for food and alcohol on your own. Sadly midtown is missing shiggy. Finding an end this Monday may be problematic because of the NCAA Men’s basketball final game that night, of course I already have an end in mind.

          My plan may fall through, so stay tuned…

          • Stacy says:

            There’s still basketball happening? 😉

            (though actually I’m currently winning the pool I’m in!)

          • I am such a basketball hater that I didn’t realize I was signing up for a trail on the night of the championship game. I was going for the Easter, “Wee is Risen” angle. 🤓

          • Steve says:

            I don’t have a dog in the fight, but would love Loyola Chicago to take it all.

            Stacy, what do you win if you win? Honor and glory?

          • Stacy says:

            That’s about it Steve. 🙂 If Michigan wins, I have all the bragging rights until next year. (of course they would have to beat Loyola Chicago to do that)

  2. Note to self: you need to schedule a physical

    good morning – chipped tooth all fixed yesterday afternoon – they did it as a filling, so it wasn’t as big of a deal as I thought it could be. Last week of dental insurance for a while, so it had to get done.

    Watched the re-make of Roseanne last night with Breaststroke, I was underwhelmed by it -but I was never a huge fan back in the day anyway. It has some good jokes, but some stuff was way too forced.

    Speaking of Midtown hashes, I’ve always wanted to do one that goes by all the art and sculptures in the area. You could start at OLotPM, go around Peachtree Circle to Pershing Point (past the “Little People Globe”), past the High, along the walking paths over to 14th, further South to Midtown Marta (Skyhook sculpture), past my office (The Eagle), corner of 10th and Peachtree (formerly the spinning rock, now the half car, half marble) and end at Joes on Juniper or similar.

    I was killing little trees and cutting down some big vines last night. Some of the anchors for the vines were 2″ around- I may have one that will make a good walking stick. And having not been in a grocery for almost a month (Hello Fresh!) I finally did some shopping as we were out of staples- no spaghetti means no Skyline and I needed some!!!

      ^^ and if anyone does lay Steve’s trail above on a non-Monday, I have a perfect ending for you. 🙂

      In semi-related Midtown bar news, I read yesterday that Midtown Tavern has been sold. I’m not sure exactly what the feel will turn into, but I read “Sunday Brunch” and “drag performances.” Should be interesting. There’s a fantastic porch that’s not nearly used enough — they don’t open until 5pm now (4pm on Saturdays! That’s stupid!).

      • Barb says:

        that would be a fun trail. I really need to work on getting into town more often. I’d help hare, but could only do it on a weekend.

  5. Today is a “meat allowed” day, so after my walk to pick up an order at the Amazon store I popped into Taco Mac for some grilled chicken nachos and a beer. Feel free to remind me of this when I have gained weight next Tuesday.

  6. The perfect lunch, if not for the cost and calories. Lol. My time of wearing a beard is coming near the end soon – it’s getting too warm for one.

    • Barb says:

      I went to Jersey Mike’s for lunch – they are donating all their profits today to charity. And- they do have a tasty sub.
      I need to learn what is where around here to eat – in walking distance is Five Guys & Firehouse subs (and Taco Bell/KFC). And I think a few other sit down type of places. Everything else is a drive away. Do all Dunkin Donuts have sandwiches? There is one of those as well.
      There is a nice park less than a mile away- 2 mile trail in the “woods”.

      • Stacy says:

        I did the Jersey Mike’s too! And the owner gave my friend and I coupons to come back (free chips & drink with a sub – I’ll take it). No pics on FB, but got ’em on the Twitters and Instagrams.

        Dunkin here has breakfast sandwiches, but not lunch ones. Einstein’s has lunch ones though and they are GOOD.

        Where exactly is your new place, Barb? You don’t have to say the name (you can be ABC company to Wee’s XYZ)…just curious where in town.

    • Ugh, I just had one chicken wing from the potluck lunch held at work and it seriously put me over the edge. It’s what I deserve, really…
