Not all of these will be covered today…
Colorado Beer, Oh Boy! (No Music For Me!)
My friend Jill returned from Colorado with a car stocked with quality beers from the state. She had the fantastic idea to invite a group of us over to have a night of Colorado beer tasting. I had the bad idea to have many twelve-ounce tastes.
I wound up missing both shows I mentioned on Friday (The Long Winters, Magnolia Electric Co.). If anyone out there went to either of these shows I’d like to know what I missed.
Hello Old Age My New Foe
On Friday before heading to Jill’s I stopped in to Ella Guru, one of the better used CD stores in Atlanta. While there I picked up Atlanta-band Snowden‘s “Anti-Anti”, a promo release of Yo La Tengo‘s “I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Kick Your Ass”, and Muse‘s “Black Holes And Revelations”. Normally I don’t trust my memory so I drag my iPod in with me everytime I go into a CD store. Last night when I realized that I already owned the Muse CD, I wish I had done so on Friday.
Next stop, Senility Island.
Piedmont Park Wedding #2 — Complete!
This weekend my friends Laura and Bob tied the knot at the Park Tavern. Because the reception was also at Park Tavern I hoped that I would be able to drink some of their microbrew at the reception. Unfortunately, this was not the case — however a really decent red wine was provided so I made sure the get my fill of that instead.
Post-wedding many of us headed over to The Highlander (sound familiar?) to meet up with the end of Saturday’s Atlanta hash.
Following the hash ending I headed over to a party to help celebrate the impending 40th birthday of my friend Randy. Welcome to old age buddy.
You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown
Lately I’ve been compared to Charlie Brown. Fuck that! I am much more like Eeyore thankyouverymuch. Charlie Brown is a simpleton bufoon who manages to bungle even the simplest tasks; Eeyore is an intelligent donkey who is depressed, yet thoroughly overjoyed when people remember his birthday. Get it right…
About fifteen years or so ago there was a comedian who had a bit in which his girlfriend had just broken up with him. When he asked her why, her reply was that she felt that he lacked confidence. “Oh, and this is really going to help that!” he retorted.
I have said it before and I will reiterate, confidence is like work experience — when you have none no one wants you, but you have to have someone want you in order to gain it. Funny how that works, no?

I think you are #1…
I’m Much More Certain About This…
My East Atlanta Deadbeat Dads are most certainly going to lose their first game. I have a player in tonight’s Monday Night Football game (Alge Crumpler) but I am soooo far behind (by 39 points by my count) that I think that it’s a moot point. One of the reasons I’ve disliked playing fantasy sports in the past occurred this weekend. My starting QB (Eli Manning) was playing against my starting Defense (Seattle). It’s such a quandary to root for one against the other.
As it turns out it really didn’t matter. I found out about fifteen minutes into Sunday’s second tier of games that another one of my starting players (Donte Stallworth) was scratched from the Eagles’ game. He was listed as “probable” up until game time. Arrgh!
Maybe I should try and acquire the Burger King, he seems to play really well in those commercials…
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – pissed off
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing The Arcade Fire — “Rebellion (Lies)”
Website Of The Day – Last week I was turned on to AccuRadio. I played around with it this weekend, and it seems pretty neat. Be forewarned that there is no Mac love yet… 🙁
Exercise (b)Log – none
Monday Morning Weigh-In – 203 lbs (Somehow I managed to lose last Monday’s weigh-in of 202 lbs. That means that this week I gained a pound. Um, that’s going in the wrong direction…)
