Rough Start

Once again I awoke wishing that I hadn’t. Then upon trying to enter my office I spilled black coffee all over my white shirt. Luckily I have a spare shirt or two in the office but this is not how I want to start my day.

I Know When To Go Out, I Know When To Stay In
I had a paid ticket for the Robyn Hitchcock show last night.
I really wanted to go.
But the thought of being miserable with a runny nose and trying to not drink beer was too much for me to handle.
So I stayed home again.

I am not having much fun right now.

Somehow I Don’t They Don’t Think The Meant What They Wrote
Yesterday I was reading an article about food photography when this sentence made me stop, laugh, and then re-read it to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. Play editor for a moment and read the following sentence.

Pay attention not only to the arrangement of the food itself but to the context that you put it in including the plate or bowel and any table settings around it.

Did you see what caught my eye? If not, I think that the author meant “bowl” and not “bowel”, they are after all two very different things…

I tried setting up Paulie’s Ghetto Studio last night, but my lack of patience (imagine that being that I am sick and all) led quickly to frustration so I quit.

I Think They Figured Out A Class-Action Lawsuit Might Be Headed Their Way
Remember how I’ve griped about my BlackJack’s battery life? Seems I am not the only one. Yesterday a fellow Blackjack owner told me of a free longer-life battery and battery cover upgrade being offered by Cingular (AT&T). After getting frustrated trying to find this offer on Cingular’s webpage I Googled the terms “blackjack extended battery offer cingular” and found a link to get in on the deal.

I’ve since turned off enough features to make my life with the BlackJack okay, but if Cingular is going to give me this for “free”, then why shouldn’t I take it.

    Am I the only one who’s not really understanding this whole MySpace thing? I do have an account (dixiecheese, of course) – but mainly just so no one else can get the name.

    I thought it was for “the younger generation.” Bands and businesses and stuff have MySpace accounts? Really??

  2. I think that MySpace was originally meant for bands. The have always had a music player embedded on home pages. The kids jumped in with both feet and took it over (creating some hideous home pages along the way).

    I too have an account (either InsideThePerimeter or InsideThePerime) but never log in.

    I, too, am on MySpace. It has proven to be a magnificent way for people whom I have not seen in years to get in touch once again. Sadly, that includes scary ex-boyfriends.

    You better include Tenement Halls on your “Atlanta Bands” list or you will no longer be my MySpace friend >:(…

    Moresight is good, too.

  4. hmmm….? That’s all you’ve got FAB? 🙂

  5. yes. i was busy mulling over your 7 bands.

  6. Have you any additions to my list? I’ve a vote for Tenement Halls, and I assume I could have added Sovus Radio as well.

  7. Rich says:

    The Preakness, fool.

    And what do you think of Deerhunter live? Because they pretty much give me a headache.

  8. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I don’t know The Preakness.

    I’ve not gotten to see Deerhunter live yet.
