Are We Sure It’s Only Tuesday?

Meet The Hashers Go Down In Flames
We gathered at Taco Mac last night for trivia. It may be the last time we gather there for some time as the host is really kinda annoying.

As an aside, I really can’t get used to not seeing the trees lining North Highland.

Going into the final question we were in fifth place. There were a lot of teams bunched near the top in part because the questions weren’t too hard, and in part because the host seemed determined to make things easier by asking some multiple choice questions and dropping some hints. Why weren’t we in first place then? Well, I guess we just weren’t that smart last night.

We finished out of the money

The City To Busy To Care About Anything But Putting Up Overpriced Mixed-Use Condominium Developments
I am glad that I was able to get a shot of Kool Korners Grocery before it goes bye-bye.

Kool Korners Grocery

When I worked down the street from Kool Korners it was a treat to walk down and purchase the best Cuban sandwich this city has to offer. When I worked near the Havana Sandwich Shop on Buford Highway, I’d eat a Cuban sandwich there that only made me miss Kool Korners’ that much more.

Last night I read in the Creative Loafing that a developer has purchased the land on which it sits and will be kicking out the current businesses. I’m not certain that they are going to build a condo on the site, but I’d be willing to bet $1 on it.

Please Get Off My Ass
Lately it seems like it has gotten really hard for me to drive around this town.

This morning while trying to get in position to parallel park so that I could get some coffee and say hello to Ellen this guy was all on my ass. I had put on my turn signal to park (which probably confused him) and looked in my rear view mirror to make sure he wasn’t going to plow into my rear end.

The guy put on an aggravated face and it appeared that he was going to go around me, so I put the car in reverse. At that moment he decided not to go around me and instead block my ability to back into the spot for some reason.

Rather than get into an accident, or even an argument, I threw the car into drive and sped off to the florist parking lot where I illegally parked in order to get some coffee.

Not really the way I wanted to start my day.

Clever Is As Clever Does
Over the weekend I purchased my first hydration pack. I’d call it a Camelbak, but it’s not, it’s a Novara which is an REI brand. What I didn’t purchase was one of those doohickies (technical term) that helps the bladder dry out so that it doesn’t get nasty.

After using the pack on Sunday I drained it and discovered that if I inserted a pair of tongs (long ones used in the kitchen) that they worked incredibly well at keeping the bladder separated so that it could dry out.

As a matter of fact I am quite pleased with myself for thinking of this thankyouverymuch…

CD Pick Of The Week
Today I am either not a fan of the artists (see “India.Arie”, “Dashboard Confessional”), or have never heard of the artists (see “Dr. Octagon”, “Lostprophets”).

However, I see that the Pet Shop Boys are releasing something today. Could it possible that they have new material all these ears after I used to listen to them? Is this the original lineup?

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – frustrated
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Nine Black Alps — “Cosmopolitan”
Website Of The Day – My tong-tip was but one clever idea. The folks over at Hints-n-Tips have built an entire website for this sort of information.

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.”

    Are you ever just going to add a button to your site so you don’t have to include that line every day?

  2. InsideThePerimeter says:


    a) It’s part of a template I start with each day
    b) Not everyone knows what is
    c) I never thought about it

    Thanks for the idea.

  3. Steve says:

    As I was driving to work yesterday, they were taking down the last of the trees. Did I miss something? When was this ever announced? I was only gone to Vegas a week, I come home and they have cut down all the trees. WTF, over?


  4. InsideThePerimeter says:

    They say that they are going to redo the sidewalks and thus the trees had to go. As I understand it they are going to add those annoying bulb-outs and then replant trees.

    Man, I am like the anti-civil engineer. I hate bulb-outs and speed humps.

  5. Maigh says:

    There are also plug-ins for your mood and music, so you could narrow down the fluff at the end to the site of the day for manual entry.

    Thoughts for the laptop party.

  6. InsideThePerimeter says:

    Thanks for the VaHi info. I wonder why we couldn’t replace the trees with native varieties, however.

    Probably not going to remove the text for plugins. It’s my signature ending, and I like to free-form capabilities of text.

  7. Susan says:

    What’s a bulb-out?

  8. A bulb out is an extended corner. If you have ever driven down McLendon Ave toward Candler Park in the last year or so you have seen them.

  9. Susan says:

    Okay – gotcha. Thanks!

    Holy crap! They’re getting rid of the best Cuban sandwiches in Atlanta???
