Good and not so good day for me yesterday.
Assuming that I will get paid it was nice to make $55 for evaluating four buns. I remember why it is so hard to get into these surveys â€” easy money.
From the survey company I hit up the Sandy Springs Goodwill in hopes to find some choring clothes, as well as something to wear for tomorrow’s Halloween Home Crawl. I struck out on both accounts. However, I did get a Pyrex casserole dish for $4 and took advantage of employee apathy by getting a four-disc set of Tom Petty video for the price is a single movie, $3. To be honest, if the employee tried to charge me more than $3 I would have let Goodwill keep the DVD set, especially knowing that they paid $0 for it. After Goodwill I popped into REI, but realized that nothing in there is priced for the unemployed, not even their clearance merchandise.
Because I was near the Taco Mac that was near the office in which I spent eleven years, I wanted to eat lunch there. It’s been a out five years since I visited this location, and some things have changed. As I mentioned yesterday the businesses surrounding this Taco Mac have either closed â€” Maggiano’s, Outback â€” or have become something else â€” I cannot recall what was in the space now occupied by Hob Nob Tavern. I also had another goal, to find my nameplate. Lo and Behold I did find “Wee lil Bit” (goddamn character limits!) after some searching.
One thing that is set to drastically change in the area is a four block redevelopment, the edge of which is my old office building, to be called “High Street Atlanta”, which is ironic because it will either be in Sandy Springs, Dunwoody or Unincorporated Dakalb, and not City of Atlanta.
Upon arriving home I moved some captured water to jugs. Due to last night’s rain I will do that again this morning. I really wish that I had replaced the spigot on that rain barrel now.
My night was spent eating, napping, and trying to get over a nagging headache while looking for things to watch on tv. I never had the motivation to mount the trainer.
It’s Friday! Yep, though I have nothing special planned for today.
Tomorrow I may do the Halloween Home Crawl.
Sunday I will be puttering around WLF before heading over to Bonnie’s to what happened her shoot candy to kids via a chute. ðŸ˜
Hope that you have a happy, healthy, and safe weekend.
