Away From Keyboard

Today wraps up my college recruiting efforts, so I will be away from the keyboard today.

I Am, I Am Superman
For the first time in a long time somebody stopped me on the street and ask me if anyone had told me that I looked like Christopher Reeve. This always makes me crack up. One thing though, why is it always men who tell me this?

East Atlanta Village To Be Deflowered
In disappointing news, I found out yesterday that Iris will be closing its doors for good this Sunday.

This disturbs me on two levels. First, the village has lost many establishments over the last year. Some people have said ‘Good Riddance”, I say that the village is starting to look like a ghost town. (we have had additions and a new place is set to open shortly, but all in all it has been a net loss). Second, Iris was ‘different’; it was a higher-scale restaurant than any other in the area.

They managed to overcome a fairly high-proile murder / shooting a couple of years ago and have been named one of Atlanta’s best restaurants, I wonder what gives?

Man, The Apprentice Is Like Paulie Fantasy Camp
Just without scantily-clad women.

While I will readily admit that two of the “rewards” on this season’s The Apprentice, playing hockey with the New York Islanders and baseball with the New York Mets would suck for most people, they would be on my adult Make A Wish Foundation list. For me to play on Shea stadium’s turf would be like owning an iPod Nano and an iPod Video!

Just As I Praise Marta…
For the last two days my spiffy fourteen-day-old monthy Marta card has been ‘unreadable’ by the turnstiles. Today I have to go to one of Marta’s Ride Stores and talk to them about trading my ‘old’ card for a new one. Frustrating! I’ve still got big plans for riding Marta this month, I need that damn card to work!

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – sniffly
Current Music – none
Website Of The DayBoingBoing is one of the whackiest story aggregators on the net. Nary a day goes by when I don’t get a chuckle or a confused look from one of their stories.

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

    I didn’t think that Iris was as good as it was cracked up to be. Every time I went there I was disappointed.

  4. Paulie says:

    I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I never ate there. I never had that “special occasion” for which I wanted to eat there. When I eat in my own hood it’s usually because I want a more casual experience.

    Reading the AJC article yesterday, it seemed that Iris’ mistake was that it catered to the Buckhead, Sandy Springs crowd instead of the intown crowd that would be more willing to put up with the street life, etc. that goes on in a place like EAV.
