Tonight, I am meeting friends at Dad's Garage for their improv show. Their improv shows are some of the best in Atlanta! From what I've heard, tonight is their pants off improv where, at several points during the show, the comedians drop their pants and continue with their scenes. I am looking forward to it very much!
With that, I should finish a few things around the house. See you all next year and I hope everyone has a very safe and Happy New Year!

I've traveled to Tennessee the past two weekends for Christmas events with my family. They were all fun, but I'm ready to stay home for a few weekends. Bootcamp is still going well. It actually hasn't been very cold here for December so that's been nice.
Over the weekend my Mom and I saw The Good Shepard. It was good, and is a definite thinking movie. That's not necessarily a bad thing. I usually enjoy movies where I am required to think, but I was already very tired from driving to Tennessee, visiting family and then driving to the movies.
I'm supposed to hit my training runs heavy by January 7th for the half-marathon in March. That, however, has hit a possible snag. Yesterday, I injured my foot. I visited the doctor today and after several x-rays was told that I have either a very deep bone bruise or a mild stress fracture. I'm very frustrated because this could set my training back -- especially if I have to go through physical therapy! Hopefully, it will heal quickly. I really wish I had a nice story about how I injured myself doing some great athletic feat . . . not so much. It is actually quite a stupid story that I shall not bore you with here -- mostly to save my embarrassment!

8:00 a.m.: Before actually heading into the office, I stop at the Post Office.
10:00 a.m.: On my way to the courthouse I noticed the Christmas decorations around the Decatur Square. 12:00 p.m.: On my way back to the office, I took a tiny detour and drove by Stone Mountain. This is a very bad picture, but the mountain is very cool. You can find out more about it here: Stone Mountain Park
12:10 p.m.: Heading back towards Atlanta, this is Spaghetti Junction, where I-285 & I-85 intersect. Lots of traffic here during the rush hour.
5:00 p.m.: Finally heading home for the day.
5:30 p.m.: On the way home, getting onto I-285 East, this is usually when my traffic starts to get sticky.5:45 p.m.: A view of the downtown skyline from Mt. Wilkinson. A bit of history, this is where General Sherman got his first views of Atlanta during the Civil War.5:45 p.m.: This is also at Mt. Wilkinson, this is "Vinings Mountain" the same development I posted during my last 12 of 12 several months ago. It's coming along quite nicely. Too bad it's way out of my price range right now!
6:15 p.m.: I did make a Best Buy stop on my way home as a favor to my Mom. While there, I also picked up the new Robert Randolph & the Family Band cd "Colorblind". The bottom cd is from 92.9 DaveFM's Circle of Friends live show with Robert Randolph & the Family Band. It was free with the "Colorblind" cd!6:30 p.m.: Simply washing some clothes, definitely nothing exciting!

I've barely done any Christmas shopping -- only purchased one present so far and my Christmas cards (which are in the mail). I have to get one more gift before I go home this weekend (I already know what it is, just have to pick it up), but I also have to pick up three gifts for my Mom since I'm closer to the stores than she is.
On Friday, I met my friend T for dinner at a really good Italian place. We were sitting and enjoying our wine when this woman came over and asked how our meal was. It was our friend D! She used to bartend at this restaurant where T & I would hang out some on Friday's. She's now at this Italian place -- it was so random. So, after our dinner (at which our server was a very chatty Bulgarian attorney) we sat at the bar and got caught up with D. It was fun!
I promise to have another post tomorrow. Tomorrow is the 12th and the final month of Chad Darnell's 12 of 12. I've only done one month since I kept forgetting. However, I already have my camera out and ready for tomorrow!
