Here’s A Fear Of Heights I Did Conquer
Oddly while listening to the Five Hundy By Midnight podcast this morning I heard that the Stratosphere is closing their roller coaster; the one that encircled the observation tower at about 1000 feet above ground. While in Vegas some time back (2002?) I actually rode the coaster. Riding the ride was the fun part. Waiting for the elevator all the way up at the top of the Stratosphere was not.
This episode was their homage to the Boardwalk casino, which has recently closed. I can tell when they recorded their segments because they reference the Jets getting beaten by the Falcons on Monday Night Football. Seriously, can we stop ripping on the Jets already!
Stroke Me, Stroke Me
Anyone out there get to go to The Strokes concert at The Loft last night? Unfortunately, I heard about the show too late and have absolutely no pull in this city.
Peroni Ad Goes Bye-Bye
On my walk through the Highlands back to my car last night I noticed that the Peroni Storefront Billboard has gone away. There was brown paper covering the window so perhaps they are just changing the ad, but I doubt it.
Taco Mac, All Your Base Belong To Meet The Hashers
With the ending of the Monday Night Football season Meet The Hashers once again assembled to play Team Trivia at Taco Mac. This was also our first time back since our friend Amy moved to Los Angeles to pursue her filmmaking dreams.
I was in possession of the team’s house cash which consisted of two Taco Mac debit cards. Frustratingly, one of the debit cards had a zero balance. I was shocked that no one assumed that I had secretly used the card without their participation, but am pleased to know that my team knows that I don’t play that way.
It was a pleasant return as we managed to take first place! W00t!
My Two Cents Now Goes To The Post Office
In case you hadn’t heard, to US postal rates went up by two cents yesterday. I knew that I should have gotten that damn passport renewal mailed on Friday! Eh, at least this will force me to go to the post office and buy some two cent stamps to stick on envelopes when I use my old thirty-seven cent stamps.
CD Pick Of The Week Returns!
Who couldn’t get excited about a little morning wood? Get you mind out of the gutter, I’m talking about the band Morningwood. There self-titled CD drops today. I admit that I have only heard one song from it (btw – if any of you with contacts feel free to send me promo CDs), which is rather catchy eventhough it has self-referential lyrics (a practice that I usually cannot stand).
The kids over at kissAtlanta really like the CD from We Are Scientists. But since I have yet to find the time to hear the two mp3s that they have posted in their review (again – if any of you with contacts feel free to send me promo CDs), I have no opinion about the CD.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – foggy
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Primal Scream — “Loaded”
Website Of The Day – I’m not saying that I need to go to the gym, but rather bring the gym to my iPod using the cleverly named iPod Gym.
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 – walking, approximately 6 miles
Weekly Weigh In – 203 pounds (bummer, I was hoping with all my walking this would have been lower)
