The Number Of The Count Shall Be Three

It Must Be A Record
Three nights in a row I’ve gone out for a run (with some walking thrown in unfortunately). Three. Nights. In. A. Row. Certainly no one else has accomplished this feat since the beginning of written history. Huh? Really? Well crap, I’ll never be able to run that many nights in a row. Perhaps I’ll be taking the night off from running tonight….

Seriously, last night being a Thursday during Daylight Savings I should have been on the bike riding with the Pizza Ride out of Avondale Estates. However, I thought that I saw red blotches on the AccuWeather radars, so I figured running would be a wiser choice. If you have a right sidebar, you can see that I’ve added some routes from the East Atlanta Village and back. The route I ran/walk last night was Cabbagetown #1. Along the way I saw the running pack that runs from Milltown Arms (no website? Why people, why?) in Cabbagetown and kicked myself forgetting about that group, not that I need another running group that ends in a bar. 🙂

Bang! Bang! You’re Dead
With the 4th of July now being ten nights in the past the pops I heard around 10pm last night started to sound more like gunfire than fireworks. Not knowing how far away the noises were generated I was hesitant to call the police, especially since the noises lasted no more than a few minutes. There are many days I wish that I didn’t have these concerns. For as much as love living in large cities I sometimes harken back to the days when I never thought about gunfire, and didn’t rely on owning a home alarm system.

Suffering From A Bit Of “Old Man” Syndrome
As much as I wanted to go out and party while listening to my favorite local country act National Grain play at The EARL I just couldn’t. I was back from my run in plenty of time to shower and rest before heading out, but the thought of going out, drinking and then returning home no earlier than 1am on a work night proceeding a big day of work just seemed ill-advised.

I’m not thrilled with my decision, but at least I am well rested.

The same will probably not be true tomorrow as I am planning on making a trip to Flatiron (can’t find a website for them either) tonight for the hash happy hour, and then a later trip to The EARL for some good old fashion live music.

Argh, My PDA Is Eating My Calendar!!!
Yesterday I went to check on my Chicago flights in my PDA’s calendar. Much to my surprise when I looked in the calendar app there was no entry for a flight to Chicago. However, when I did a search using the Find app a record showing the flight was returned. When I tried to enter a new record for the flight, it didn’t show up either! I am planning on getting rid of this PDA when I upgrade my cell phone when my contract is up in August. However, I’ll need this information before I can do so, and the process of transferring information especially when I’m not 100% of the accuracy of the data scares me. Perhaps it’s time to invest in a Moleskin?

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – gee, I really don’t know yet
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Tilly & The Wall — “Bad Education”
Website Of The Day – Yes I am exercising. Yes I own an iPod. Therefore the site fitPod seems a natural for me to pick today.

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 – running/walking, approximately 5 miles

    I heard pops last night too, but mine *were* from a gun (enough time on the range to distinguish) and I *did* call the po-po.

  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Hmm, perhaps I should have called. I was confused by the number and frequency of the pops and since I wasn’t sure I didn’t want to tie up the po-po.

    Since Creative Loafing moved out of their Willoughby Way homestead, my street has become a hotbed of criminal activity — mostly with stolen vehicles dropped at the end of the block and “activity” in the parking lot. Police don’t come down here unless we call them though so maybe I should consider ending a hash here sometime soon …

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Now that I think of it Beth, you Maigh (and also Kathryn) don’t live very far from one another.

  5. Maigh says:

    We should set up a lazy man neighborhood watch with webcams.

  6. Beth says:

    Hmmm … the 4th Ward Web Watch. We take turns monitoring at Johnny’s or P’Cheens … better than reality TV … too bad the cross-dressing homeless prostitute doesn’t seem to be living under the bridge anymore … we always had fun watching him/her “go to work” 🙂

    The store where I work has every line of Moleskine that they make. I can pick you one up for the “low-low” as they say in the vernacular. I’ve got a little one I carry around that I jot stuff in. They’re pretty neat, well-made, and their following borders on fanatical. Then again, is low-tech really the answer? Get a Q, you know you want to…

  8. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Oliver, A Q may be in my future. I’d have to leave Sprint, but that may not be a bad thing…

    Beth – I never knew of the tranny troll…I totally missed out. 🙁
