Let’s Just Say The Weekend Didn’t Go “As Planned”

Trips to The EARL planned: 2
Trips to The EARL made: 0

Boy Meets Bar
It may sound strange to you that I’ve finally come to the conclusion that I have a drinking problem. The problem I have really deals with the day following and the lack of productivity that comes after a long night of drinking. I don’t like sleeping in late, to me it’s a complete waste of time. Even on the weekends I want to awake early, pop out of bed, and get the day started. Shit, I value my weekend days because their are only two of them as compared to the five that I have to give to The Man.

On a slightly different note, why is it called Alcoholics Anonymous when the first thing they make you do is stand up and say “Hello my name is Paul and I have a problem.” Doesn’t revealing your identity remove the anonymity?

Fool Me Once, Shame On Me
Fool me twice, won’t get fooled again!

I’ve officially written off ever mentioning Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s in this blog again. It seems as if they take pleasure in scheduling shows at The EARL and then cancelling them. Even if they had another valid excuse (I’ve now found out that their van broke down) for this cancellation I can’t be bothered with planning my nights around them only to have to find alternatives later.

A hugh thanks goes out to Leah for spreading the word on Saturday and saving me the disappointment I suffered last time.

I Can See For Miles

Yesterday I decided not to hash and to go on a hash-like photostroll with my friends Stacy and Phil instead. We headed over to the abandoned Paul D West Middle School in College Park to snap some interesting pics before doing what hashers do best, drink beer.

But Paulie, Where Can I Get 1/2 Price Wings On The Weekend?
The last stop on our photostroll yesterday was the Trackside Tavern (lousy, useless website) in Decatur. Trackside is currently offering half-priced wings on Saturday and Sunday from 1-7pm!!! They were very good, so I suggest you go get some next weekend.

I’m Sorry I Thought You Said Alice In Chains Was Scheduled To Play Variety Playhouse
Newsflash — Layne Staley is dead, long live Layne Staley! I know this to be true because I heard the news story four years ago on the day after someone I really liked dismissed me. I have a scar on my hand from the drywall screw I hit when punched the bathroom wall at Gravity Pub in a drunken stupor the day before I heard he died. (now you know why I play trivia…)

Should there not be an asterisk when you bill Alice In Chains because really, this is not my Alice In Chains, the grunge band I saw headline at Lollapalooza in 1994, but rather a lame attempt at the surviving members to make bank.

When ALL members of the band are not present, you are no longer that band. See also The Doors, The Who.

At least The New Cars attempted to make distinction to let us know what the deal was.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – meh
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Neko Case — “Star Witness”
Website Of The Day – Now you can build that Great American Web2.0 Business Plan with the help of bullshitr.
Exercise (b)Log – none, what’s up with that?

  1. when i first heard they were cancelling yet AGAIN i thought they were kidding or something.
    the earl was kickin’ friday night. you should’ve been there.

  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I wanted to go Friday night, but I was so tired by the time I got home from Twain’s it would have been pointless.

  3. Martha says:

    It sounds like we missed a ‘shocking’ hash yesterday. I can’t wait to read the hash trash. Darren’s phone will never be the same again.

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I’ve heard one report of the lightning strike at the end of the hash. Now I am really glad I didn’t make it!!!

  5. Todd says:

    To be fair, The Grateful Dead did drop the ‘Grateful’ from their name when Jerry died.

  6. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Point taken, post updated to remove The Grateful Dead. Thanks.
