Happy Friday all.

Fun day of drinking, eating a month’s worth of meat, and watching fireworks in EAV.

Today I am (currently) eating breakfast at Homegrown and will be visiting a Kroger DMV kiosk to attempt tag renewal.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday will be Black Sheep! Anxious about laying a long, shiggy trail, but all will be fine.

Happy 4th of July!

Glad I didn’t do something stupid like sign up for the Peachtree, or agree to do today’s pub crawl because I slept until 7:15am! Woot!

Pre-long-weekend trip to Krispy Kreme and then Waschsalon.

Wednesday Tale of the Tape: 213.8 pounds (+1.8 from last week’s weigh-in); and the roller coaster goes back up!

We are in the two-day interstitial twixt Canada’s Independence Day and the United States’.

Last night’s trail did indeed go tunneling, under I-75. It was a long, dark, but clean and tall affair. We ended at a place called “Howell’s” which was too fancy for me.

Women’s World Cup game at 3pm, first German class at 6pm; not sure that I can do them both?

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: I forgot today was Tuesday and was already dressed by the time I realized that I was supposed to weigh in this morning. Oops. Tomorrow I will.

Happy Canada Day friends. 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

After a weekend of traipsing through my back yard on Saturday and the woods (getting another tick on me while scouting trail) yesterday, I’ll spend this evening doing a little in-town Moonlite hash. Why I didn’t check to ensure that my headlamp, which has been deemed a requirement tonight, was in my hash bag this morning, I don’t know.

NRL RIP (for me)
If you’ve read this space during the past year and a half you’ll remember that I’ve acquired a growing appreciation for Australia’s National Rugby League. After a short hiatus the league resumed play last week, but the Fox Soccer Match Pass app that I have been using to watch the games has stopped showing them. Yesterday on a lark I emailed customer support, only to receive the bad news that they will no longer be airing non-soccer matches in the app. 😡😢 No further explanation was provided.

Here’s my food/exercise summary for June:

Unfortunately my attempt to renew my tag at Kroger last night ended in failure. This time I don’t believe that I can blame Kroger however, since I am a Dekalb county resident and the kiosk appears to be for Fulton county only based on the messaging about the Fulton County Tax Commissioner. Poop

I considered taking the day off from “XYZ Corp” today to get some errands and chores knocked off my list, but decided against that so that I don’t appear any more “expendable” than my current position appears to be.

Happy weekend to you, folks.

Mysteriously hurt my right wrist getting into my car to drive home yesterday. 🤷🏻‍♂️

The M6 passed emissions inspection. If you live near East Atlanta I can recommend going to the gas station at Memorial/Maynard; my test cost only $20. Next up: paying for the license plate sticker.

Had a really tasty Paulie-altered Instant Pot vegetable lo mein last night, inspired by this recipe for it at Slap Dash Mom.

I was in the vicinity of three cars getting pulled over by police yesterday, thankfully for me I was never one of those drivers.

On the way home yesterday I did a brief grocery run. For some reason I can no longer find MorningStar Farms’s vegetarian pulled pork in stores. I really liked it, but wonder if I was the only one?

My productive night came to a crashing halt when I fell asleep super early. This should come as a surprise to no one. At least I can proudly say that I was I the office again before 7am today.

Attended a fun show, Operators at The EARL, last night with Bonnie and an old co-worker/friend Mitch. At the show I wondered how I was first introduced to Dan Boeckner (once of Wolf Parade); all came clear when I read that Wolf Parade’s (a Canadian band) first album dropped in 2005, during the heyday of CBC Radio 3’s podcasting era.

This morning finds me at Krispy Kreme, where I just finished an apple fritter, awaiting the opening of the Waschsalon.

German class returns today.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 212.0 pounds (0.0 from last week’s weigh-in). Okay, now I can focus on other issues today.

A weekend dedicated to hashing with reccying on Saturday and running an abbreviated Black Sheep yesterday. The Black Sheep was interrupted by an unforecasted thunderstorm which scared more than one of us while running trail. Thankfully there were no weather-related injuries to report.

Tonight I will be skipping hashing choosing to see a show at The EARL instead.
