North On The South Rail

We were all treated to another wrong-way Marta ride today. My northbound train rode the southbound rail between Arts Center and Lindbergh. We were even given the extra bonus of travelling on the middle rail near Lindbergh while getting passed by another northbound train. How special.

Two Degrees Of Chillification
After a discussion at George’s Wednesday night about the upcoming house heating season I decided to drop the (already confused) thermostat a few extra degrees. I don’t mind putting on a sweater in order to save a couple of hundred dollars this winter. Also, this money can be put toward something more enjoyable such as my new iPod or PSP, or whatever…

Twas The Night Before The End Of Daylight Savings
Hey kids (except those in Arizona and the Eastern Time Zone portion of Indiana) don’t forget to set your clocks back this weekend. And, as all the safety experts suggest, now is a good time to check/replace the batteries in you smoke detectors. You do have smoke detectors, don’t you?

Tripped Up By A Travel Question
Me and the boys were kicking some ass at trivia last night. Had I been more forceful on my opinion that Andy Warhol designed the Rolling Stones tongue logo we would have been perfect going into Round 6. Then the wheels came off the cart. We missed a question about television (I didn’t like the wording of the question — “Which action drama requires the cast to have their hair trimmed every five days?”) and a travel question — “Which city is further from New York, Paris of Los Angeles?”. Going into the final question we were in second place, behind the first place team by five points.

The final question had something to do with putting the movies “Traffic”, “The Insider”, “Gangs of New York”, and “Moulin Rouge” in order of release. Since we argued about the release date for each movie, I strongly suggested that we be zero points. We did. Unfortunately some team got the answer right and leapfrogged us. As a result we finished in third.

Off to a meeting…

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – happy for all the wrong reasons
Current Music – none, Call For Help is on the tv in the background (this happens when I am late)
Website Of The Day – The Triangle Poster and Printing Co. has a page with really cool posters they have created. Click on the thumbnails and have fun wasting time on the last Friday of October.

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.”

Yesterday’s Exercise (b)Log – none, day off

    You are correct Sir!

    The way the question was asked led us to thing that it was a military-based show. One of the guys suggested something called “Over There” and that’s what we quessed.
