“oooh, there's a picture of New York, there's a picture of New York, there's a big fat crazy picture of New York!”
Wednesday was a pretty good day. I woke up refreshed at 5am (I had fallen asleep rather early the night before), so I had plenty of time to read, pray, relax, and get ready for the day. Work was ok – nothing much to talk about – and in the evening I got together at TGI Friday's with Myssi, Laura, Emily and several of their friends I had not met before (Scott, Scott, Ben, Amanda). We walked along the canal afterwards and had some good fun and good discussion.
Yesterday was a slow day. I went to the BMV because I had renewed my plates by mail back in June and never received anything. Since my plates were expired by a month, I figured I needed to go in there and get it resolved. I drove into Indianapolis from work (20 minutes away) and then discovered I could have gone to any BMV, not just the one in my county, so... unnecessary 20 minute drive. At least it only took 21 minutes total to get it taken care of.
After work I went to my friend Sheryl's for a get-together with some of her friends from Beyond Your Best. It's essentially a personal development program that she's been involved in. We did an exercise writing down descriptions of various things in our lives as they would be in 8 years, 1 year, 90 days, and 1 week; then discussed them a bit. It was interesting, as were the people there. Afterwards Sheryl and I got to talk a bit, which was good because we haven't just sat down and talked in a while.
Funny anecdote: I have another nickname now - “Frank”. At Sheryl's a lady shook my hand and said “you must be Frank.” Sheryl had told her I was coming, but for some reason she got “Frank” in her head instead of “Gregor”. So we ran with it for most of the evening. :-]
