...and damned tired to boot. Got home from the 'rents yesterday after spending four days in NC for Thanksgiving, and to hang out with my Dad (first time I have seen him since the wedding and his surgery). Looks exactly the way he did before, which is a good thing - not many people in their 70's can spring back from major surgery and not look any worse for wear. It was really relaxing, although I ate WAY too much - went to bed every night feeling like I was a bloated whale, a feeling which I hate.

Got home about 7pm, and then started in on chores and bills and stuff - then all of a sudden it was 1am. Not too unusual, except that I had a 6am flight out of Dulles, which is an hour drive from my house, and since I needed to get there about 4am, I had to get up at 2:45am - so an hour and 45 minutes of sleep it was. Iam not really feeling the effects right now, but I'm sure I'll slam into a wall in a little bit.

So I'm just wasting time in Birmingham, AL - was going to head to Five Points and check out a cool restaurant, but I don't feel like driving all the way over there (I'm staying at a hotel pretty far south of downtown). Anyone know a good place to go in Birmingham? I'll have to come back in a month or so, since the idiots doing the new building I had to inspect screwed it up so royally.

Now I'm going to go to the Copeland's across the street, get a beer and some food, and then pass out until my flight tomorrow morning.Mmmmm, Turbodog :) Whee!!
