Batten Down The Hatches!!!

These Are The Coffee Shops In The Neighborhoods
The “On Camera Weather Talent” is telling us that a big cold front is headed our way and we should expect rain (or worse) today. I checked the radar and I agree with them (which I am sure is comforting for them).

So today I tool a klaw, which is one of my walks to my car only in reverse. These are the coffee shops I passed until I blessed Aurora (Highlands) with my presence.

  • Aurora (L5P)
  • Starbucks (L5P)
  • Java Vino
  • San Francisco Coffee (closed when I passed)
  • Starbucks (Highlands)

In the two minutes I was in the shop I heard one female employee tell another female employee “Girls I know how to handle, guys I don’t know whether or not to stroke their egos”. I wanted to tell her “Of course you should, we like that sort of shit”, but didn’t want to let on that I had heard what she was saying.

This morning I came to realize that there are a lot of people who get up and run early in the morning (I was walking from 6:30am-7:45am) around the Highlands/Midtown. Must be nice.

Hashers: They Are Everywhere
Yesterday I read an article on The Motley Fool that made me curious as to why the author said what he said. What I like about these Internet Times is that you can usually click on the author’s name and get an email address, or even more information about the author. Imagine my surprise when I saw the following line in the author’s profile:

Favorite Sport or Team: Hashing, ‘bent riding

Well, I for one don’t know what the hell “‘bent riding” is (Get it? “hell bent” Get it now?), but I certainly know what “Hashing” is! Now I know why the article didn’t make sense, it was written by a half-mind.

To The Person With The Fireworks: FUCK OFF!
My neighborhood has been far from perfect of late. We seem to be experiencing what the kids call an “increase in violent crime.” At 5am this morning, when my alarm clock is set to go off, I heard a series of about six blasts. My first thought? “Great, someone is shooting at somebody else.” Then not two minutes later I heard more noises, these more like the fireworks which get shot up into the air and then explode. I am starting to get really jumpy and I don’t like it one bit!

Hmmm, This Sounds Familiar
Here is one of the lead stories from today’s Atlanta Journal Constitution “Lowered thermostats haven’t kept gas bills from soaring.” Cool, I can now officially say that this blog is “ripped from today’s headlines”, or “based on a true story.” I am nowhere near arrogant enough to think that the writer of that story reads this shit. 🙂

On a side note: Hey developers and home buyers, keep building and buying 4,000+ sq foot McMansions. You are really helping solve these issues. Or perhaps not…

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – sweaty
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Avalanches — “Frontier Psychiatrist”
Website Of The Day – Are you the “curious” type? Go over to MetaFilter and see what sort of bizarre questions are being asked (and sometimes answered).

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.”

Exercise (b)Log – none, took a day off

    ‘bents’ are Recumbent bicycles. There is an extreme hardcore group of ‘bent’ riders who seem more like PETA on Pedals than recreationl cyclists. It’s like they have an unchallengable list of 1001 reasons why bents are better. I know a few, they are fun to pester.

    Personally I remain skeptical about ‘bents’. They look like they may be fun to try, but can be best described as; A ‘bent’ is to a bicycle as a moped is to a motorcycle. When they race them in the TdF, maybe they’ll be worth a try.

    Aaaah! I never knew recumbents were cool enough to get a nickname.

    If you’d kept going a few hundred yards more I’d a bought you a coff in the True Original San Fran Coff shop. No Gimmicks, no WiFi (in fact even electrical outlets are dead) but the coffee is the best. The clientel don’t have cable but can tell you exactly why Bush is a total camel shagger.

    Heh Heh. Unfortunately the real SF Coffee shop is well off my path.
