I’ve Got Phobias

Yes I do.
I’ve got phobias.
How about you?

I Don’t Like To Get High
I have an incredible fear of heights. When Sunday’s Black Sheep trail went over a train trestle that crossed the Chattahoochie, I not only said “No!”, I said “Hell No!” Unlike the other hashers, I really couldn’t convince myself that it was a wise decision to cross this trestle. After all, this was constructed for trains not humans so it wasn’t like there were consessions made for foot travel. I was told by those with the chutzpah to cross it that is was very scary.

My name is Paulie and I was unable to do what others were able to do. There. I admitted it — I am far from perfect.

White Elephant, Pink Elephant
So are you wondering what gift I brought to this year’s re-gifting party? It was this

(if you are having trouble seeing the picture, go here)
When I bought those sodas around Thanksgiving I was so excited to drink them; that was until I tasted them on Thanksgiving at a friend’s house. They were disgusting! I was flummoxed as to what I was going to do with my sodas until I remembered about the re-gifting party. I hope that the recipient enjoys them at least as much as I did.

Oh, and what did I walk away with from the party? A book called Who Pooped In The Park.

The wine part evening was a complete smash. I want to thank the hosts for allowing me to sleep over and avoid a DUI or worse. You kindness is much appreciated. And for those in need of hangover relief, I can highly recommend Crescent Moon‘s “The Heap” (The Heap, $6.95/$4.95 half, A heap of seasoned potatoes topped with bacon, cheddar cheese and two eggs any style).

And Closer To Home
On Saturday night I stayed within walking distance of the house. Originally I was going to go over to the Young Blood Gallery for the Art Dorks show. However, it was a Lazy Saturday (sans chronic) so I bailed. The night’s meal was a delicious burro from Cantina La Casita, followed by a few beers at Graveyard Tavern while attending my friend Glenn’s fortieth birthday party.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – feet planted firmly on ground
Current Music – none, listening to the This Week In Tech podcast
Website Of The Day – Need some new workout tunes for your mp3 player? Try JogTunes.

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 del.icio.us, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – hashing, well at least part of one
Weekly Weigh In – dammit, I forgot!

    How’d you get across the river, then?

    Am I really 40? How did that happen?

  2. Paulie says:

    I never made across the river. I “boxed” until I hit 285, at which I turned around because I knew I couldn’t run across the bridge. At that point I backtracked to the start where I was picked up and driven to the end. Sad but true.

  4. Paulie says:

    I managed about 3/4 Heap. Not even in a hungover state could I eat the entire skillet.

  5. Hasher Who Dislikes Trestles says:

    OK, gotta disagree with your “imperfect cuz I don;t cross railroad trestles” postulate.

    Hashers live in some kind of reality-free bubble most of the time they are on trail. I am not immune. I’ve done trestles. I’ve also had to run my ass off to avoid rapid & lethal acceleration by a crossing train. Now when I come to a trestle?:

    I pop the fucking bubble.
