Back To Normal

And The Winner Is….
“Chicken Fngers with French Fries at the Universal Joint in Oakhurst.” That’s actually the answer to two questions, “What was the first ‘real’ meal I ate post-food-poisoning?” and “What was the first restaurant to get my business post-food-poisoning?”

My stomach was still feeling a bit uneasy on Friday and managed to put down about 3/4 of the meal, but passed on any beverage other than water. My first beer was consumed a few hours later back at the house.

I’m glad to say that all is back to normal. I even decided to push the limits a bit yesterday by eating breakfast at The Majestic Diner (no need for a website I guess). I was feeling hungry and I knew that odds were good that there would be a stool open at the counter so that I wouldn’t have to put in the required Sunday morning hour wait to eat.

Pictr This!
I was up early Saturday morning, in part to return my sleep cycle to one which agrees with work, and in part to participate in my first Flickr photostroll. I met a group about twelve at Oakland Cemetery where we spent an hour or so strolling around snapping photos

Bobby Jones' 19th Hole

before then moving to Little 5 Points to take some more.

Here's Looking At You

If you want to look at all of the photos I shot that day click here.

After photostrolling a large number of us decided to grab a bite to eat at Evans Fine Foods near Emory. Have you ever passed a place a thousand times and never really taken notice of it? Evans is such a place for me. It has been in business for fifty years and I have never heard of anyone eating there before. I ate some biscuits and gravy, which I topped with an order of hash browns and had a glass of milk. I was joyous when none of these caused even the smallest problem with my stomach. So, have any of you eaten at Evans Fine Foods?

Hashing Or Natural Selection?
Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference…

Sunday was a Black Sheep hashing day. It was a birthday hash laid by my friend Thomas (aka Colonel Cl*t). I expected a hard trail and I got that and about three times more than I wanted. A portion of the trail went through a swamp in which each step of mine went knee deep in mud. At times I wanted to tip over and drown myself. After finally getting out of the swamp and running/walking for awhile we entered a tunnel (sewer pipe) which was ungodly long. Long tunnels are generally not too bad, however this gem had about four connection turns within it and two of the tubes were so tight that I had to duck walk or crawl through them.

Why do I mention these details? Because hashers aren’t “right in the head” and you should know that any time you deal with one. We hashers have a motto that “You pays your money, you takes your chances” and sometimes that is more accurate than others.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…

Website Of The Day – I’ve bored you a lot about my photos, and have selected a lot of photography sites here (expect more in the future, btw). However UnPhotographable is a funny site where the guy describes the picture he didn’t take.

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.”

    One positive thing about being single – as you said, no 1-hour wait for food. Which means you are less hungry when you eat which means you eat less and lose weight…?

  2. Yum, U-Joint is good, but you need to try Steinbeck’s across the corner. It’s owned by the same people as UJ, but the service and food are better and the patio is shadier.

  3. InsideThePerimeter says:

    I contemplated Steinbeck’s, but since this was my first “real meal” I went with the option I knew over the one I didn’t. I’ll be making a trip to Steinbeck’s soon, though.

    is steinbeck’s new ? i’ve never heard of it ..

  5. InsideThePerimeter says:

    A few months old I would guess. I first heard about it from a hasher… imagine that. 🙂

    We ate there awhile back with D’s parents. It was okay, I’m not an oyster fan at all, so the menu was a little limited for me. I did have some shrimp cakes and they were pretty good. I’m not sure if raw oysters (or even being around them) would be a good choice for someone over coming a nasty GI buy.
