One Half-Step Closer To Godliness

If cleanliness is close to godliness then I am now one half-step closer. Learning from the Bush Administration I have decided to name this initiative. So, in my house you will either see an active “War On Dust Bunnies” or “Operation: Clean This Mother Fucking House Already! It Looks Like A Goddamn Pig Sty. How Do You Ever Expect To Impress Anyone With These Appearances?” Perhaps I should just stick with “War On Dust Bunnies”. Yesterday I Swiffered the hell out of the majority of the upstairs hardwoods, which eliminated a lot of the dust which the fans (necessary to counteract the lack of a/c) have been kicking up.

Step one is to remove dust and dirt. Steps two through infinity is to maintain cleanliness.

I really don’t see any of this season’s Hell’s Kitchen contestants being able to run their own restaurant. After watching this week’s episode it has been made clear to me that only Rock and Michelle have a chance at winning.

And why do people in California keep going to Hell’s Kitchen. Do they think that they will get their start in show business by going there? Certainly the word has gotten out after two seasons that the cooks in Hell’s Kitchen can’t cook well.

I cannot wait until the ABC After-School Special that will reenact Paris Hiton’s harrowing prison stay.

Shrimp Etouffee?

This was supposed to be Shrimp Etouffee. Although I followed the recipe it didn’t turn out to look anything like any shrimp etouffee that I’ve eaten in the past. So, I now dub this dish “Shrimp With Chopped Veg.”

The Atlanta Concert Listing Is Heating Up With Summer
Last night I finally got around to checking out the acts which will be gracing our city over the next few months. You’ll see my social schedule light up light a Christmas tree over the next few days. Last night I purchased a ticket for The Mooney Suzuki (beware, music) show at The EARL which will happen in September. That show will be fucking incredible (imho).

Terri, how’s that substitute teach plan working for the Meat Puppets‘ show in September coming? I’ll be making my ticket purchase for that show real soon.

Tonight I believe that I am going to see The Polyphonic Spree (beware, music) at The Roxy. I have no ticket yet, so if I find myself near Butthead *shudder* and tickets remain I will attend. I’ve hesitated to jump on this show because The Roxy is a Live Nation (aka “Clear Channel”, aka “TicketBastard”) venue and I don’t enjoy dealing with them.

Speaking of Butthead, why have they let The Roxy remain? After all, it’s a venue which hosts rock and roll shows (the Devil’s music) and they also serve alcohol (Heaven forbid). Shouldn’t they shut them down like all of the other bars and turn the joint into a Christian Science Reading Room or something along those lines? Do you think that Rodeo Drive allow the Viper Room exist in their neighborhood? I think not!

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – cheeky and hoping this allergy medication doesn’t wear off anytime soon, although I already feel its strength weakening.
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Mates Of State — “Fraud In The 80’s”
Website Of The Day – Screw TicketBastard! If tickets for a show are available from TicketAlternative that’s where I go to buy. Btw- The EARL has just brokered and online ticket deal with TicketAlternative, so I think that they will be seeing me visit often.
Exercise (b)Log – none (inertia)
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car (seems to be more inertia)

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

    You didn’t say if the shrimp was good? (even if it didn’t look right). Does the Roxy have a box office? I had Allan go directly to the Fox once to avoid the ticketbastard charges. Sure, it is a hassle, but I’d rather do that than pay 20+% extra for a ticket to something.

  2. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I meant to mention that the shrimp tasted good. The dish had an odd (firm) texture probably because the vegetables should have been cooked a bit longer. I didn’t cook it much longer than prescribed because I feared turning the shrimp to rubber by overcooking them.

    The Roxy better have a box office otherwise I definitely won’t be seeing the show tonight. I am usually too lazy to go to the box office to buy tickets. I’d rather punish the venue for giving TicketBastard exclusive ticket sales instead.

    Throw the shrimp in later next time, they cook so fast 3 minutes should do it…

    Mine would be called “Operation Blow Me”, as I’ve often thought about just opening the front door to my house and using my leaf blower………

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I will toss the shrimp in later next time. This time however I was following the directions as written so I had to take what I had.

  5. Barb says:

    wait – cooking by the directions as written? isn’t that totally against the rules?

  6. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Barb, I live for the rules. Hashing is the only thing in my life that has no rules.
