End Of May Day

Where did May go? Five months down, minor progress made along life’s path.

Caught In The Wild
It’s rare when I find myself on the lens side of a camera these days. It usually only occurs when someone else snaps a picture of me as rarely do I take self-portraits (btw- Maigh, I still have your plunger, in no worky with my camera).

On last weekend’s photostroll my buddy Darren managed to capture me capturing something else.

Paulie's Action Photo

It’s a shame that the pipe obscures my awesome calves, but other than that I actually think it’s a pretty good shot of me (look closely and notice my Mona-Lisa-like smile).

Margot And The Nuclear No Shows
Last night wasn’t my fault (this time). After my photography class I rallied myself off the couch and headed up to The EARL around 9:30pm to see the live music for which I had purchased a ticket. The bill last night was to be (some band), Margot And The Nuclear So & So’s, and Film School. I was there to see Margot et al, and Film School.

When I entered The EARL I thought it odd that the tv’s were turned to baseball and that the place was relatively empty. I walked up to the table leading into the music room and saw the sign “Margot And The Nuclear So & So’s cancelled”. Given that I was there to see two bands and that it was about 9:45pm I asked “Does this mean that Film School will go on early?”, to which the reply “They will probably take the stage around 11pm.” While I have no qualms sitting in a bar for an hour, I don’t really like doing it alone, so I decided to cut my losses and head home so that I could get a decent amount of sleep.

And as they say, misery loves company.

If The Hotel Is A Rockin’…
My July trip to Chicago is a go! The other day I took my chances and used Hotwire to book my hotel room for the weekend of the Paste Music Festival in Chicago. When I booked my room all I knew was that it was to be at a “Four Star” hotel in The Loop for $131 pre-tax per night. What I found out afterwards was that my room is in the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago, which seems fitting for the reason that I am travelling to Chi-town (which is a term probably loved by Chicagoans like Atlantans love Hotlanta).

Next on the agenda, buy a ticket for the recording of Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!.

Run Like The Wind
I’m planning on a George’s running outing tonight. It should be nice and steamy come 6pm, perfect weather for sweating out and toxins I injested over the big Memorial Day weekend. A look at the calendar reminds me that it’s time to start training for the annual Atlanta Hash Peachtree Pub Crawl on July 4th.

“Water Bad! Beer Good!”

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – okay, thanks
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Ben Folds — “Bitches Ain’t Shit”
Website Of The Day – Maybe I’ll do my Peachtree training via HyperStrike – Online Personal Fitness.

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 – nothing

    I don’t have the industry clout to find out ahead of time. 🙂 I would of stayed had others I know been there, but being a loner at The EARL is not my cup of tea. Hell, I rarely go to Gravity solo any longer.

    Alex with OK Productions told me that they’d be back in August. We’ll see.
