It Feels So Late

Welcome To STANDARD Time
If you live in parts the of Arizona that don’t know how to change the time on their clocks (congratulations to Indiana for finally figuring this out this year) you can skip this section.

By now you’ve figured out that the rest of the United States has pushed their clocks back one hour. What many have not figured out is that we have now entered Standard Time, that is to say we are no longer in Daylight Savings Time and therefore the abbreviation for the time (assuming an Eastern Time Zone) would be EST instead of EDT. Chalk this up as one of my many pet peeves but I cannot understand why some people cannot grasp this concept.

Did you also remember to do some of those critical things which should be done a couple of times of year like check to make sure you smoke detectors work (you do have smoke detectors, right?) and change their batteries?

Winning Ugly
Don’t get me wrong I am as happy as the next Gator fan that Florida managed to win on Saturday. However, even the most devout UGA fan will admit that this year’s Bulldog team is not good and I am here to say that they Gators are not that much better. And because of that, that is all I will say about this topic…

In other sports, I’ve heard that someone won the World Series this weekend. Color me one of the millions who failed to watch a single inning. *man these grapes are sour*

And finally in the world of sports…. Congratulations to the Atlanta Thrashers for going up to Buffalo and stopping the Sabres ten-game winning streak.

I’m Calling Shenanigans On The Amazing Race
Spoiler Alert….

C’mon, it seems a bit fishy to me that for the second time in three shows that Kentucky has been saved by not being eliminated on The Amazing Race.

Having said that I thought that last night’s episode contained a little bit of everything I love about the show. Team Alabama is #1 on my “I’d like to see them eliminated” list, followed very by Dude & the Bitch (Rob & Kimberly). I find it odd that there is no penalty for wrecking a vehicle in the race either. Perhaps the penalty for the Blondeshells was that their prize for winning the leg was a pair of scooters (laaaaame!!!)

I’ve Got A Problem…
I really need to learn that when I hash on Sunday I can’t drink as much as I did yesterday. It’s not only very bad for my waistline (nor was all the pizza I ate), but it completely screws up my sleeping pattern. I crashed on the couch after getting home (sometime around 9:00pm) only to wake up at 2am and remained awake until 3:30am. Further I had to search for about twenty minutes for my house keys, retracing my steps and turning the house upside-down only to find them by my car on my driveway.

I was ready for Saturday

Is There A Bachelor In The House?

Which apparently only primed the engine for Sunday…

Is National Grain Going Out To Pasture?
It never fails, as soon as I start touting a local band they talk about quitting. At their in-store at Decatur CD on Saturday National Grain must have mentioned taking a hiatus to somebody there because they posted this news on their blog.

Tonight, Tonight, Wahhooooo
If I can remain awake tonight I will be at Variety Playhouse for the Tilly And The Wall show. One of the unique features of T&TW is that they have a tap dancer provide percussion. That’s right, tonight there will be a woman on stage tap dancing throughout the show. That right there is worth the price of admission for me.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – okay
Current Music – none, I am watching Call For Help on my computer
Website Of The Day – Did you know that the Fed has a timeserver so you can find out the exact time? Yep, it’s at Time.Gov.
Exercise (b)Log – hashing on Sunday
Monday Morning Weigh-In – too heavy, enough said

    another PSA – does everyone have carbon monoxide detectors as well? It is really inportant if you have gas heat, fireplace, etc….. (yes, I live with a fireman, I hear some crazy stories of what could be prevented….) And you can get a smoke detector for free from the fire dept., if you are too cheap to go buy one. They will even install it for you. (if you have the guts to ask them to do it.)

    I have a carbon monoxide detector as well because I have gas (well, you know what I mean).

    My house has four smoke detectors because I used to live with someone who was terrified of fires.

    In a game of “Who wants it less…”
    … we had 5 turnovers.
    That is all.

    Argh—silly football screwed me out of the last 20 min. of the Amazing Race again. Lesson finally learned—TiVo the next show too.
    I had to read yer page and the cbs site to get the scoop. I too hope the bama mammas go next or the jerky dude and bitch. I had to rewind TiVo a few times to watch the dude fall again and again—whoo hoo that was funny.

    Question (a la Dwight Schrute), if your keys were in the driveway—how did you get in your house?

  5. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Yeah, I forgot about watching him fall. It made it even funnier when they started arguing about him falling.

    Your question is what helped me figure out were my keys were!

    1. I knew that I had gotten into the house, that’s why I searched the house so hard.
    2. I also remembered that when I got home I had to pee very badly.
    3. All of my hashing gear was on the kitchen floor.
    4. Therefore I had to have made a trip back to the car to get the hashing gear… and because I have a fear of locking myself out of the house I always take my house keys when I go out to the car to get something.

    What do you think of the Flying Dog? I’m not a huge fan. Are you going to the Smyrna beer festival on the 11th?

  7. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I think Flying Dog is okay. I can drink most of their brews but rarely do I go out of my way to get some.

    If all goes to plan I will be camping in SW Georgia on the 11th.
