Twelve Days: Day One

For the next twelve days I will give you the item for that day from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” along with the gift I would like to receive. You will see quickly that mine may not always be material, but are just as strange…

Song: A partridge in a pear tree.
Paulie: I want web developers to stop limiting my passwords. I want my password to be any length and contain any character I can type on a keyboard. This nonsense of max-sixteen characters and only alphanumeric must end. It’s nearly 2007, let’s stop programming like it’s 1985.

Picture Yourself At A Flickr Party
Last night’s Flickr Holiday party was a blast. Good food, beer, and chatting up those photogs I knew and didn’t know. The only downer was that the light in Front Page News was so dim that I hard a very hard time shooting photos.

More Signs Of The Times
Long-time readers of this space will know that I have a special place in my heart for the music Bob Mould has created over the past twenty-five (or slightly longer) years. The other day I was reading Bob’s blog and saw that he will be performing a New Year’s Eve show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York. What really caught my eye about this announcement is that Bob is opening for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Don’t get me wrong, I really like CYHSY’s music, it’s that I just never imagined that Bob Mould would be an opening act for them. It almost makes me wish I could take a trip up to NYC to see the show.

Meet my new lunch buddy

My New Lunch Buddy

If food can fit into this 5.5″ x 5.5″ x 2″ container then I am allowed to eat it for lunch. I am only allowed one serving. It’s tough love but so is having to go to the store to buy larger pants, which I have just done. For those “in the know” this Friday’s outing is an exception to this rule.

.38 Special
Don’t look now kids but I think that the East Atlanta Deadbeat Dads have won their first playoff game! Unless a bizarre scoring correction occurs they have beaten their opponents by a scant thirty-eight one-hundreths of a point (that’s 0.38 to you and me).
WooFuckingHoo! This means that I’ve made it into the semi-final round and should at least win back enough money to cover my entrance fee.

CD You Should Have Purchased In ’06
Again there is nothing new listed on Metacritic that excites me. So just like last week I’ll suggest a CD I purchased this year that you may not have.

This week’s pick is “Carnavas” by Silversun Pickups. Silversun Pickups may be a little to Smashing Pumkinesque for some people, but it’s a sound I enjoyed in the past and I think that they do a decent job of making it their own.

Silversun Pickups also put on a decent live show. They are scheduled to return sometime in ’07 with Snow Patrol, however I shall not be attending because the venue is the Gwinnett Center in Duluth. That’s waaaaay too OTP for this ITP snob. But I didn’t need to tell you that, did I? 🙂

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair to midland
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Cansei De Ser Sexy — “Let’s Make Love” (a song I wish that they would drop from rotation)
Website Of The DayHopStop is a new site dedicated to help people get around American cities using public transit. Atlanta is not yet listed, probably because so few people here us it.
Training Target – don’t know
Exercise (b)Log – don’t care because of toe

    yeah, don’t bring that little blue Glad container on Friday unless you want to be mocked

  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    It’s not Glad, it’s Ziploc. Nobody mocks a Ziploc! Besides, I might bring it to make my own ToGo plate. 😛

    Dude, that’s what the “autofocus” setting is for!

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Oh I usually shoot autofocus because I am shooting sans corrective eyewear. I was having exposure issues even at high ISO. Oh well, not taking pictures made it easier for me to drink.
