This being April 1st I want to laugh, but can’t. I’m frustrated, mainly by how much it costs to live. The latest interruption to my plan to never work again is the auto insurance renewal notification that landed in my inbox this morning. I completely understand how State Farm is able to afford the palace they have built for themselves in Dunwoody based on what I am getting charged for a service I am actively never trying to use.
Yesterday was a busy(ish) day for me, spent mostly in the Dunwoody area. I did a double survey session, and then had a lovely Tasty China dinner on the Deckmahal at Barb’s and Allan’s. Since I was paid to eat shrimp earlier in the day I feasted on all the meats. I also picked up some flower bulbs, whose name escapes me. Irises? Shoot, I should have taken some t-posts too. Barb, we’ll have to have another gathering when you return from vacation.
I received an email from Netflix with the title Here’s what’s leaving Netflix soon…. The body of the email should have included my name, for as of today I am no longer a subscriber.

I tried to spend money at Apple yesterday, but COVID thinking made it difficult. I went into the Apple Store to buy a HomePod Mini for my kitchen. I like music, and have on occasion needed an answer from Siri while cooking. Earlier in the day I saw that the Perimeter Mall Apple Store had some in stock, so before my second survey I wandered in, this was a little after 2pm. I was going to get a dark blue one, but didn’t like its appearance, so settled on another black, um, space gray, one. I hailed an employee as instructed by the Apple Store app and asked for her assistance. After much fumbling she told me that I had to order it online, and then schedule a pickup, for which the first available window was 4:15pm that day. I was holding the fucking thing in my hand and there was no way to buy it immediately? Was this an early April Fools joke? It was not. So I left the store empty handed.
I have a bunch of chores to tackle today.
Tomorrow I will be “running” a 5k up in Suwannee. Stop laughing, it’s not an April Fools joke! The race and after party are at Monkey Wrench Brewing, otherwise I’d never do such a silly thing.
On Sunday I will be getting my ass on my bike saddle, riding on the Silver Comet, as I “train” for Spring Tune Up. Wheels on the ground at 10am from the Florence Road parking lot if you have any interest in joining.
Hope that you have a great weekend, no fooling.
