Years ago my friends and I would joke that you could get anywhere in Atlanta in twenty minutes, as long as you picked the right time to travel.
I guess leaving my house at 5:30am was the right time because I made it to the office in twenty minutes this morning. I had notions of taking Marta, but now I am so glad that I didn’t. Luckily for me there were also two unfortunate saps who had already been pulled over by the police, thus reducing my chances.
Doughz In Da Hood
Being a New Yorker (yes, that’s where I was born) pizza holds a special place in my heart (and will probably stop it some day as well).
I have always wanted to show love for my local shop, Grant Central East, but truth be told the last handful of times I have eaten there their pizza has sucked. Their crusts have been undercooked and have not risen nearly enough for my tastes. Great pizza is not easy, but it’s not brain surgery either.
Last night after getting my much needed haircut I decided to venture out and try the newest pizza joint nearby, Slice (Pizza) in Glenwood Park.
(As a side note I can’t figure something out. When I went to search for a website for Slice I came back with a place called “Slice” with two locations — one in Castleberry Hill, and one in Downtown. Neither of these locations seem to be linked to the place I ate last night which advertises one other location up on Howell Mill on their menu. Strange.)
The New Yorker in me wanted to try a traditional slice of pepperoni or sausage, but for some reason the Thai Chicken Pizza (I’ll leave my “Man Card” on my way out the door) won out. Let me tell you that this pizza was fucking fantastic! Their dough was incredibly developed and cooked to perfection. And for those hoodies who have avoided trying Slice Pizza because they had heard that no liquor license was in place, you may go there now. I washed down my individual pie with a delicious (but could have been colder) bottle of Sam Adams Boston Lager.
My pants are getting their revenge today…

Fuck a duck!
I think that what this male Mallard was planning to do with the female Mallard, but there was this asshole who kept trying to get closer to take pictures of them swimming in the swamp.
Download It Like It’s Hot
For Mac Eyes Only…
Apple has released another OS X point-release, 10.4.9, which is poised to be their last operating system release before thrusting Leopard onto the world. I downloaded it last night and have seen no problems, or benefits truth be told, but it’s a free download and Apple wouldn’t have done the work if it wasn’t necessary.
And Flickr Missed The Hammer By One Day
Yesterday I was going to post that I was a bit miffed by Flickr. Sure the site has been functional, but in this Web 2.0 world I wanted more.
Their ears must have started to warm because they unleashed some new features yesterday including new layout functionality, the ability to create collections of sets, and the ability to setup email pinging when people have commented on your pictures or when your contacts have uploaded pictures. Cool! These new features don’t complete the punchlist of my desires, but they go a long way toward shutting me up for a while.
Find Me In Upper Midtown Tonight
“Upper Midtown”, like that realtor-speak? Tonight I’ll be haunting The Loft to see the Badly Drawn Boy show. I am not expecting more than a relaxed show containing music that I really enjoy.
If you are looking for me I’ll be the one with the day-old haircut, scruffy beard, < ahref="http://www.terrapinbeer.com" target="_blank">Terrapin t-shirt, jeans which are bugging me, and old-school blue suede Pumas. Even though I should not be consuming there is good chance that I’ll have a beer in my hand as well.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – urgh! (No, I am not sure what it means either)
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Fugazi — “Do You Like Me”
Website Of The Day – Few website domains capture my attention and explain what they are all about at the same time. You Park Like An Asshole has succeeded.
