Carbo Loading For A Cause
Last night I met up with a couple of my hashing friends who have offered to help with food preparation for my annual Super Bowl party.
When I started haring the Black Sheep hash which occurs on Super Bowl Sunday three years ago (stupid, stupid, stuuuuupid! — this will be my last!) I realized that trying to conduct the party solo was a really bad idea. Last year my buddy Craig (hashname: Little Sister) worked for a catering company that I hired and my friend Laura (hashname: Martha Screw-It) also came by to help out. This year Craig is no longer in the catering biz so Stacy (hashname: Pumpt’kin) is moving into his place as a
For their kindness I took Laura and Stacy out to Figo pasta in the Edgewood Retail District. After a pretty decent meal an a shared bottle of red wine we worked out the food details and I am really confident that the day will go off without a hitch. Well, at least the party portion of the day….
Non-hashing readers, if you are interested in coming to the party let me know. This year’s event will once again be an ALS fund raiser with all proceeds going to the ALS Center at Emory [link takes you to the About page on the ALSride.org site] so I will be asking for a $5 per person donation.
Any Season Is The Right Season For 5 Seasons
Tonight I will be meeting up with thirty-odd Flickerites for happy hour at the 5 Seasons Brewing. Rarely can I say that I am happy to be headed to the Roswell Road / I285 area, but tonight I am.
I think the last time I was at that micro-brewery about eight or nine years ago it was called Cherokee(?) and I was there to meet up with the Atlanta Singles Running Club (or Group). Needless to say neither the “singles” nor “running” part of the group attracted me so I never returned to one of their meetups.

This is the glass I received for free a few weeks ago at Taco Mac because Bass was the Beer of the Month there.
I doubt that the beer at 5 Seasons will be served in anything this fancy.
The Number Of The Count Shall Be Three
Three CDs were added to my collection yesterday. With time to kill before meeting the ladies at Figo I swung by Decatur CD to see what they had in stock. While there I was able to find “Born In The UK” by Badly Drawn Boy in the used bin, and “Kill Gordon” by Atlanta’s Kill Gordon in the new section for only $10. I later picked up The Shins’ new disc “Wincing The Night Away” while puttering around Target; it was on sale for $10 as well.
I listened to the Kill Gordon and The Shins CDs before going to sleep last night and must say that enjoyed each very much. Not everyone will like Kill Gordon’s “Nirvana-esque” stylings (imho) but I was a huge fan of the Seattle movement so I found it to be rather satisfying.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – fair
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Beck — “Beer can”
