Made the mistake of waiting too long to eat last night and subsequently shoved too much food into the old piehole. As you will see below, I am not exercising nearly enough to eat a lot of food (in order to lose weight).

Also, on a whim decided to see if there were any empty lots for sale in East Atlanta. Holy shot has the real estate market gone insane again.

    Yup, being sick most of February afforded me lots of time to sit on the couch, eat and not exercise. I am the fattest today that I’ve been in a looong time. I can almost say I’ve gained 15 pounds since last January, YIKES!!!

    (And speaking of gaining weight) First time to Trader Vic’s last night with my friend David. While my friend Paulie helps expose me to Atlanta’s best dive bars (🙌🏻), David’s mission is to expose me to tiki bars / tiki drinks (i.e. there’s more to life than beer 😮). Fun night with a fun cover band that played the likes of Dire Straits, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Eric Clapton, Huey Lewis, Duran Duran, The Romantics, Toto, The Police, Jackson Browne.

    In case it wasn’t clear that I’m an insufferable spreadsheet geek, here’s categorical proof:

    nothing 14
    walking 5
    trainer 5
    hashing 5
    *Total is more than 28 days because one day had two types of exercise

    m 7
    v 21

    This is what it would look like in a worksheet, assuming the list is pasted into column A and the words are entered into column G:

    nothing =COUNTIF(A:A,”*”&G1&”*”)
    walking =COUNTIF(A:A,”*”&G2&”*”)
    trainer =COUNTIF(A:A,”*”&G3&”*”)
    hashing =COUNTIF(A:A,”*”&G4&”*”)

    m =COUNTIF(A:A,”*”&G7&”,*”)
    v =COUNTIF(A:A,”*”&G8&”,*”)

    Alright, I’ll get back to what I *should* be working on now. But we can now safely say that Paulie does nothing half the time. 😉 Happy Friday!

    • *fist bump*

      See, too many “nothing” days in February. ☹️

      And it goes without saying that it’s a good thing that I don’t log my beer and coffee consumption for all to see. 😮

      I wish I understood spreadsheets like that – wow!

      • ITP Lurker says:

        There’s a couple of really useful techniques here:

        =COUNTIF counts how many times something appears in a range of cells. In this case I was lazy and referenced A:A instead of say A1: A28 the way most people do. That causes it to reference the entire column, but also results in a shorter formula.

        The rest is the criteria of what I was looking for. For ”*”&G1&”*” the asterisks are wild-cards, that I want to count how many times whatever is in G1 appears in column A:A, thus is can be in the middle of a cell, as opposed to counting when whatever is in G1 comprises the entire cell value.

        The asterisks have to be enclosed in double-quotes, and so the ampersand connects it together. A lot of people use CONCATENATE to piece text together, but again I’m too lazy to bother typing out such a long word when the ampersand does the trick instead.

        OK, now I *really* need to get back to what I should be working on. Thanks all for the distractions. 🙂

  3. And today also marks the first day of the Atlanta Preservation Center‘s “Phoenix Flies” program in March. Check it out.

    I went to OK Caf̩ for dinner РJohn was NOT there РI was very disappointed.
    Dinner was good – only 5 beers for the selection – but I found 1 that was acceptable.

    OK Cafe Trivia:
    The “money” on the Money Tree has the names of those that donated $$ to the OK Cafe Employee fund, after the fire (water heater, lot’s of smoke, like November 2 years ago).

    Many long-time OK Cafe employees have been there (well) over 10 years.

    OK Cafe was *totally* gutted (down to red dirt floors), rebuilt and everything put back (almost) exactly as before.

    We were there the first day it opened (surprising nobody).

    (Letter to the Editor: I sure wish I knew how to post pictures to this blog.)
