Overslept. It’s 8:00am EST as I type this, guess I will be late to work today.

    you overslept – wow.
    how often does that happen?

    I’d say about 90% of the time, I turn the alarm off before I even wake up, not wanting to disturb madam (or the dogs). If I’m lucky, I don’t step on Brownie when I get out of bed.

    It was a sad night last night. Debbie had a work dinner and on the drive home, an owl committed suicide into the front grill of the truck. She was quite upset, as was I. Knocked off the chrome Toyota logo and cracked the grill. Before I saw it, I wondered how big this owl was, but it turned out to be a screech owl, about 8″ tall. He must have hit the truck head on to cause that much damage. Poor thing.

      poor owl (and Debbie)

    • Sad for all.

      I saw a similar, though smaller impact, thing happen with a cardinal and a car on a bike ride through Stone Mountain (which tells you this happened at least three years ago…)

      Oh, poor Debbie. That may haunt her. I still cringe from running over a squirrel a couple decades ago. Not much you can do about an owl flying straight into the truck. Or a squirrel running under your tires at the last second.

  3. Today is one of those days where my body and mind are fighting. Though I have lost weight this year my pants are tighter than they have felt in some time, and, I am fighting a breakout on my waistline that feels suspiciously like poison ivy, but how?

    Apparently I have survived drinking coffee made with Atlanta tap water during the boil water advisory. 🙂

    If you have or like cats, this video of a lion fighting off a pack of 20 hyenas is fascinating. No gore, and it pays off huge at the end:

  5. Is there a website on which I can read Georgia/Atlanta news (weather, election results, etc) without being bombarded with videos, ads, and popups? I can’t stand the AJC’s or WSB’s websites.

    ….no.

    This just in: “HamWithCam achieves a new morning weight low, 228.5 pounds.”
    Booyah.

    It must be time for a holiday OK Cafe meet-up. 🙂

  7. Based on what free lunch I am having today I may throw a wrench in my day/night by walking up to the German Christmas Market in Colony Square Atlantic Station after work. If I do, there is a sausage in my future. Originally the plan was to Instant Pot a “Chicken” with broccoli and cheese meal.

    • Lunch is pasta with meat…

    • Barb says:

      I’m headed to the Brazilian Bakery – no idea what I’m getting today.

      • The one on Delk? And have you tried Mina’s buffet (under Mink’s) for lunch yet?

        • Barb says:

          still have never been to Mina’s – never feel that hungry to get my money’s worth at lunch time.
          the Brazilian Bakery is on Powers Ferry – its more of a sandwich shop bakery. but – I had the most popular item Coxinha – shredded chicken ball with mozzarella cheese (fried). Very tasty!!!!
          I almost ordered this sandwich –
          Lombinho – Pork loin, ham, mozzarella cheese, lettuce, tomato, pineapple and potato sticks
          If you are bored – check out their menu – its super tasty (& weird) stuff!! http://brazilianbakerycafe.com/menu/

          • ITP Lurker says:

            I see what you’re up to, trying to tempt me to go OTP. The coxinha looks crazy good, but I’ll have to live without it, unless they set up an outpost ITP. 😉 I’ll just stay ITP and drink coffee instead. 😉 😉

          • Barb says:

            maybe there’s some Brazilians ITP, but I think the majority live in Marietta.
