I am not sure how this has happened, but today marks my tenth anniversary with my current employer. Technically it’s ten years and three months because I contracted with the company who later hired me as a full-time employee ten years ago today. And technically it’s really only eight years with my “current” employer because I was a member of the company who hired me when we were all acquired eight years ago. Isn’t math fun?
Even More Super Bowl Leftovers
How Do They Stay In Business?
I may have muttered aloud here once before wondering how Satellite Records in L5P stayed in business. I am well acquainted with Criminal Records and Wax n Fax (NFWS?), but had never stepped foot inside Satellite (hell, for a long time I didn’t even know that it existed).
I no longer have to wonder, as on Saturday I saw that the store was closed and cleaned out. The note on their door mentioned their web presence, and when I get around to processing the pictures that I took that morning I might look them up.
Ain’t That A Kick In The Pants
You know that big party I threw Sunday (with massive help from others, of course)? You know, that one that raised money for this year’s Muscle Mountain 50 Mile Bike Ride Against ALS just like two year’s parties before it? Yeah that one. Yesterday my friend (and ITP reader) Barb informed me that she has heard that the ride is not going to occur this year. Fuckity, fuck, fuck, fuck! Nevermind that one of my goals for 2007 was to finish the damn ride, no mind the fact that the Atlanta Hashers ponied up over $400 for a donation. Sure, we can turn the money over to ALS research in the name of the Hash, but it’s just not the same. Phooey!!! This is officially the last year that I do a Super Bowl Sunday hash followed by a Super Bowl party fund raiser. Next year there will just be the party. Mark. My. Words.
Want to know how wild I was last night? How does vacuuming the basement, discarding all trash from the Super Bowl party, cleaning the bar area, and doing three loads of laundry (one of which remains in the drier) sound? Oh, I know how to live!!! Tonight will probably be more of the same. But you want to know the sick thing? Having a clean house makes me happy. It’s sick I tell you. See ladies, I do have a redeeming quality after all…
ITP Flickr Pic
I fucking love this shot! However it has generated no interest on Flickr.
Every time I look at it I laugh. Perhaps I’m just a sick bastard.
There’s Something Going On In L5P
My first clue was the completely-filled parking area at 7:00am. My second clue was the camera person standing on the corner of Moreland / Euclid. My third clue was the amazingly bright set constructed in the Homeless Zone of L5P.
I have no idea what was going on, but I wished that I had the time to take my camera gear out and take pictures of them.
If you know the details, please enlighten us with a comment.
I Fear The Gas Man
While it was refreshing this morning to exit my abode and not shudder from the cold, the last three weeks have been bone chilling. My house, which is now fifty-one years old, wasn’t constructed with the world’s greatest insulation. Double-pane windows? What are those? This is the time of year when I dread the bill notification from Scana (or whoever is my natural gas provider at the time).
I try to be frugal when it comes to heating my house in the Winter. I wear sweaters, and hats occasionally, however I draw the line at putting gloves on inside my house. Keep in mind that I’m the only one in the house, so any suffering is only inflicted upon me. I figure that if I can save $50-$100 dollars on the cost of heating that money can be spent elsewhere, you know, like on beer, toys, and
hookers camera gear.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
