My Internet Tubes Have Clogged Arteries

Man things are moving slowly today. Could it be that our lack of rain has caused the internets to start dying?

Hello Governor, Is That You?
Rarely does procrastination pay off. Yesterday was one of those rarities. For a few weeks I have been scheduled to give a presentation on Thursday of this week. For one reason or another, be it interruptions at work or a week’s long vacation the presentation didn’t write itself, so I planned to knock it out yesterday. Before I could even start I received a phone call from the person who scheduled the presentation and he canceled the meeting. I like it when things work out in my favor.

It Was Like Finding An Old Friend
Remember that Toenut CD I found in a thrift store in Williams, Arizona? I finally got around to playing it and sure enough it was the same Atlanta based Toenut that I remember from the mid-90’s. In doing a little more research on Toenut I found out that the CD I purchased, which was titled “Information”, was the predecessor to the CD “Two In The Pinata” disc that I possessed. It turns out that Toenut released three CDs in total, the last of which was under the band name Tyro.

This has been your Mid-90’s Indie Rock Minute.

I liked the way that the moon was rising over the cliff.

I promise to stop boring you with vacation photos very soon.

There’s No Crying In Hell’s Kitchen!
Casting directors for today’s RealiTV have really hit their peak. On last night’s opening episode to season three of Hell’s Kitchen they managed to get a 48-year old man who cries at the drop of a (cowboy) hat, and a Waffle House line cook who gets shunned by her all-female team. I don’t expect any groundbreaking RealiTV out of this series, but I will enjoy watching it.

With the opening of each season Chef Ramsay has each contestant prepare their own “signature dish.” Last night I started to wonder what I would prepare if put in that scenario. I still haven’t figured it out. What would you whip up?

CD Pick Of The Week
I have to be honest, nothing on the new release shelf really thrills me today. Artists such as Paul McCartney, Chris Cornell, and Marilyn Manson were once relevant, but have no relevancy in my current world. I’m certainly not going to pick the new release from Big & Rich. And I have never heard of any of the other bands / people releasing discs today.

I guess that I’ll be giving that new, old Toenut CD a few extra spins this week instead.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – meh
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Idlewild — “No Emotion”
Website Of The Day – Wine, meet Web 2.0. Web 2.0, meet Wine. What do you get? The Winery Channel of course.
Exercise (b)Log – nada
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car

May Goals
1) Lose five pounds. (starting weight 200+ lbs)

    I’m a one trick pony currently… porkloin a la black rock!

    I couldn’t get a big version to upload, but your panorama stitching on flickr looks pretty good dude!

    Hey! I heard about the Atlanta Waffle House lady on the radio this morning. Any idea which Hous de Waffel she works/worked at? I want to go there!

  3. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I missed the fact that she was from an Atlanta Waffle House. I was doing a few different things as I watched, so I am not to surprised that I missed a detail here and there.

  4. Stacy says:

    The radio was my informant on this. Apparently there’s another Atlanta dude as well, who works at the Hyatt Regency in Buckhead, I think. One of the restaurants in one of them places in Buckhead.

    I’m seriously considering watching the show now. Well, that and there’s nothing else on. ‘Cept hockey, of course. 🙂 Why weren’t you watchin no hockey?!

  5. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I keep forgetting it is on. It’s not like people are inviting *me* to hockey parties, you know.

  6. Stacy says:

    Well, I’ve heard rumors of a Game 5 gathering we can crash if you want… 😉

  7. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I would if not for two things

    1) I am about to have either an ulcer or aneurysm (thanks Google for helping me spell this) based on a stupid mistake a made today. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to read about it.

    2) I have no air conditioning in the house right now.

  8. Stacy says:

    Game 5 is tomorrow, not tonight. Maybe your ulcer or aneruysm (thanks ITP for not making me look up the spelling) will be gone by then. Shoot, I hope you at least last until then to tell the story.

    That being said, I’m really not planning on going anywhere myself these next few days. With roomie in Orlando (not that I don’t miss him :waves to Phil), I’m staying home solely to walk around the house in my underwear. Because I CAN.

    Which seems might be an idea for you as well. No air?! For real??

  9. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    No air. For real. It has not worked at all this year and I haven’t gotten around to contact people to fix and / or replace it. I have been trying to get my financial shit together (which is related to today’s screw up) and until I do I cannot deal with the situation.

    Sure it’s hot as hell in the house, but at least the basement stays ten degrees cooler because it is bermed by earth on two sides. Because of this I can deal with it for the time-being.

    gonna have to get a copy of that toenut business … holy hell!

    I’ll be glad to get you one.
