~Friday~  Today I was grateful to have some flexibility in my work schedule that allowed me to run to Durham to take Robert to the airport for his late-morning flight. Safe travels, my sweet!

I had lunch with the office gang: Vanessa, Jen, Justin Jason, Garrison, and Nick. We ate at [the most decadent] Red Robin, where I had the:

Jalapeno roll, chiptle mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, pepperjack cheese, beef patty, and Red Robin cayenne seasoning

I had it with all those ingredients on it; the "x" is there to allow you to uncheck that item when calculating the nutrition information, if you didn't have that particular item. "So what did that nutritional information come out to?" you ask.

931 calories, 60g fat, 54g carbs, and 45g protein

And yes, that's just for the burger. "Did I have some of their 'unlimited' fries?" you wonder. Oh yes. Let's see the damage that did:

For a total of 1365 calories, 78g fat, 115 carbs, and 51g protien

And they don't say how many fries they consider to be a "serving," meaning the total calorie count is really 434 calories more if I ate two servings, which is quite likely.

I don't understand why so many Americans are overweight. I mean I had a Diet Coke with it.1



I continue to adore Adele and her music, and was pleased to come across this video of another one of her songs:


I love both watching and listening to her.



I stopped to get a haircut on the way home, where I learned that Latoya has stopped working at my Great Clips. I really need to learn (and remember) the name of the lady that cut my hair, as I like her, and I was happy that out of four stylists taking people in the order they came in, it worked out that I got her.

She's the same one—who isn't deaf or blind—but didn't know I was gay, a couple of visits back. Evidently, she remembered, because once she started cutting my hair, she said, "I was thinking of you the other day when I heard about the news in New York."

I didn't want to rain on her parade, but I told her: "Marriage is not an institution to which I aspire, but I am happy for those gay couples who do aspire to it—they can now participate in it like all the other suckers since time immemorial."



Back at the house, I waffled about going to the gym. My dilemma was that I couldn't go without washing my hair first (after just being cut), but I didn't want to have to take two showers so close together, as I definitely would've had to take another one after the gym.

At 7:00, I lay down on my bed—laying a bath towel over my pillows to keep the hair off them—to wrestle with said dilemma, and when I woke up at 9:00 it was no longer an issue, since the gym closes at 9:00 on Friday nights.

At about 9:30, I fell back asleep and slept through the night.



1That was just for comedic effect. I actually had water with lemon.

I like Red Robin. A little pricey, imho, but still tasty.

My big beef with them (pardon the pun....) is the acoustics in the place. The hard floors and industrial finish in the ones I've been to accentuate the shrieks and screams of the many children who seem to frequent the place. I can't take the din....

Adele
Have you purchased any of Adele's music yet John? If not let me know if you prefer Amazon MP3 Downloads or iTunes and I'll gift some to you (I'm not at all above shoving my favorite music towards others I think who might enjoy it :)

Re: Adele
You're so sweet, Casey! I have her "21" album, on which there isn't a song I don't like! For future reference, though, I have an iTouch, so I am an iTunes subscriber. :-)

Re: Adele
Oh dear, that'll never do. Her album '19' is on its way to you. My favorites: Chasing Pavements, Cold Shoulder, Right as Rain, and Tired. I'd love to know what you think of the album.
