Well, I now know that fixing the rim wasn’t the cure for the M6’s TPMS problem — because the mother-fucking thing alarmed as I drove down I-75 on my way home from the hash last night! I may have reached the last straw with this car.

Tuesday Take of the Tape: 212.2 pounds (-0.8 from last week’s weigh-in); still pissed about the car.

The AH4 trail on Saturday laid by Glory Mole (aka “Bonnie”) and yours truly was (seemingly) enjoyed by all who attended. We had many walkers, so it was good that we provided a walker option as well.

I spent the past two days trying to remind myself that it was the weekend. I’ll spend all day today reminding myself that it is Monday.

Enjoyed a good lunch with Steve and Kat yesterday, and spent the evening at home.

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend all, well, US residents. 🙂

Since last weekend I’ve had a dull pain in my legs and hips. I assumed it was fatigue caused by slogging through shiggy, swamp, and bog, on Saturday but now I am not so sure. Poop.

Happy DragonCon start to those who care!

Steve, name the time and place for lunch and I’ll see you there. If KKGB can’t join and you wish to cancel, just give me a heads up.

Slow start to my day today.

Had a good time at last night’s soccer match even if my seat wasn’t as good as Bonnie’s, my beer was not my first choice (Hopsecutioner wasn’t sold near my seat), and the $3 pizza slices I ate were awful.

Wednesday Tale of the Tape (since I forgot yesterday): 213.4 pounds (0.0 from last week’s weigh-in); surprisingly!

Fun trail last night, thankfully the rain subsided.

I can’t believe that I was so hell-bent on getting to the Waschsalon (which is late to open as I type this) that I forgot to weigh myself this morning. Poop.

Two days of reccying complete, Glory Mole and I have a trail for this coming Saturday. Those who do our trail should be thankful we weren’t forced to use the territory we trudged through on Saturday as it was very Black Sheepy. 😈

Reconditioned rim is on the M6 and rolling smoothly.

I may do Moonlite tonight, but I am very sore and could use a night of rest. I also have a lot of chores to complete. We’ll see…

Today’s status is not much different than yesterday’s.

I tried to use my new AppleCard credit card last night and failed. I made a contactless payment at Target and my American Express card was charged. Then I tried using the physical credit card at Kroger and the reader said there was a chip malfunction. I know I activated the card in Thursday. I’m a bit flummoxed. What’s the benefit of using an AppleCard? I get cash back, that’s all.

Still no word on the rim.

Last night I just could not “adult” any longer. So, I cobbled together a dinner from scraps, and started binge watching my new current mindless “tv” – “Travels by Narrowboat” — on Amazon Prime. The show, essentially one man’s video blog of his mid-life crisis decision to sell everything, buy a narrowboat, and putter along the British canal system, is slow-paced, calming, and surprisingly satisfying.

Sitting at a Waffle House in Chamblee about ninety minutes before my auto appointment on Peachtree Industrial Blvd.

I guess I should feel fortunate that the air compressor at Kroger was working yesterday, because when I stopped there this morning to ensure my tire would have the air needed to drive from East Atlanta to Chamblee, it was out of order yet again. Harrumph! At least I made the journey safely, although I’m still not at my final destination just yet.

Today is a rare unscheduled Wednesday, so my plan is to cook dinner and clean/organize the house.
