Forgive Me Father For I Have Sinned

Was It Something I Said?
For some reason my stats skyrocketed yesterday.

Was It Something I Said?

I tried poking around StatCounter to see from where these new people were coming, but could not determine their origin. If you are back here for a second time today, welcome back I hope I don’t let you down. Also if you’d tell me in a comment what brought you here I’d appreciate it.

The funniest thing about this finding is how coincidental it was. Yesterday I was watching an old episode of Call For Help and they were talking about StatCounter. I decided to log on and peek at my stats for the first time in some time and was amazed.

Is My iBook An iBoom?
Yesterday Apple announced that they have the same laptop battery issues that Dell has been having. Both are blaming Sony of course, since Sony is the manufacturer of these batteries.

After trying for a long time to get to Apple’s support website to find out if my battery is one to be replaced, I finally got through last night. Sure enough the little power source that has been keeping warm is one of the targeted batteries. This does mean that I am getting a new battery for free however. Yippee!

The Little Caterpillar

The other day I was leaving the house to go to work for the third time that day. The third trip back was to get my camera equipment. When I was about to get into the car I noticed this caterpillar on my house. It made the frustration of going back to the house for my camera a little more palatable.

Better Living Through Medicine

We’re Prednisone Kids.
One Million Strong…
And Growing

After a long wait at the doctor’s office I was given a shot in the ass and a hall pass to take to a pharmacist for some drugs.

If I had eaten Chinese food yesterday I am sure the fortune would have read “You will be taking pills for the next twelve days.”

The friendly pharmacists at Target filled the prescription and gave me the rundown on what should happen. Included in the speech were warnings to take the medication with food as it will make me nauseous, and not to take it late at night as is will make me hyper. Allllllllrighty then, this is going to be an interesting twelve days.

Theater Of The Absurd
Optimism takes a holiday….

Tonight I’ll be headed to The Theatre…. alone. I am going to the Alliance Theatre to see “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” When I purchased two tickets a few months back I was being hopeful that I would be able to obtain a date for the evening. What the fuck put that crazy notion into my head I will never know.

You Can Lead A Man To A Bar, But He Must Drink
Saint Paul is a town in Minnesota, not a guy living in East Atlanta Georgia.

After getting lost a half-dozen times trying to read the map of Castlberry Hill which had no correlation to the streets in Castleberry Hill I finally followed a fire engine to its home on Elliott Street where I knew I would also find the Elliott Street Pub. After chatting with one of the owners, Mike, I knew from the sound of his New York accent that I was going to like the place. Two beers (Shiner Kölsch) consumed and many pictures taken I headed to more familiar territory.

For me driving into East Atlanta is like reaching home base in a game of tag — I feel good; I understand the neighborhood; I’m home. Being hungry I knew there was no sense in heading straight home to my empty cupboards, so I weighed my options and decided it was to be a La Casita Cantina night. I sat at the bar (bad move when beer shouldn’t be consumed), ordered a beer (see), and then ordered up some chips-n-salsa (a must at LCC) and a chalupa puerco. To quote the devil herself (Rachael Ray) it was “delish!”

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – rebounding
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Tilly & The Wall — “Bad Education”
Website Of The Day – I’ve already confessed to losing my beerginity last night, so I might as well keep the theme going. Next time I travel up to New York I might have to check out the New York State Brewers Association‘s “Trail of Beers.”
Exercise (b)Log – nuttin’

Cheers,

    The good news about prednisone is that you’ll have more energy AND the ivy will go away. The bad news is you’ll be hungry all the time. I’ve been on that stuff more times than I can count. It DOES work though ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Betsy says:

    Dude–what the hell’s on that catepillar?

    Besides hunger, Prednisone can cause major mood swings, and even hallucinations. Enjoy!

    And another thing, this Charlie Brown thing has gotta stop! It might get you hits on your blog, but your optimism holiday is wearing my ass out ๐Ÿ™‚ Buck up little fellow. Drink some beer, see a good play, and LAUGH.

    Probably something like this:

    Well I hope you can fall off the wagon for a bit on Saturday night, should be a fun night.

  4. @Betsy: A mood swing would be nothing new to me. ๐Ÿ˜› It’s hard for me not to pessimist; I was born in the sign of Eeyore.

    @Martha: Thanks for the reference. Yikes! I didn’t realize it was a tomato worm, probably since I don’t have tomato plants! And it’s carrying WASPS? WASPS! Holy fucking Hell. I wish I had killed it now…

    I’ll be there will bells on tomorrow. Hell, I might even wear a different Hawaiian shirt this time. ๐Ÿ™‚
