Irony Is So… Ironic

Yesterday I dropped $375 to get my air conditioning recharged. While it took forever to get the house cooled, sleeping in an air-conditioned house was blissful. We (me and the repairman) agreed that my system has a leak (I had zero pounds of pressure) and this fix will most likely be temporary. His estimate for system replacement is in the $3000-$3500 range. Looks like it’s time to start saving my pennies. One other thing became apparent yesterday; I have a ton of yardwork to do in my back yard.

Today when I walked in to the office it was quickly apparent that the air conditioning is not functioning properly.

Bask In The Cool: Eat, Drink, And Watch TV
After spending the money to get the a/c fixed, and not knowing how long this fix will be effective, you bet your ass that I didn’t leave the house last night.

I made a simple pasta marinara, opened a bottle of red wine, and watched the shit out of tv recorded on my dvr.

ITP Flickr Pic
(In case you haven’t been checking, I have finally uploaded another couple of shots to Jalapeño Beach. In the near future I will be updating this site more often and will most likely break and fix the site [letting you know when I do]. The shots I upload will probably never make it to Flickr or this blog.)

The other morning I walked around East Atlanta Village and took a few test shots with my new Canon (Me? Canon? Yikes!) PowerShot SD750.

Paulie Two Ways And A Colorful Dress

This shot is not superb, but I like it. Besides, when I took it I had yet to figure out how to change many of the settings on the camera.

Top Chef? More Like Boring Chef
Last night’s Top Chef was a complete waste of time. ‘Nuff said.

Oh No I Didn’t
I nearly booked my first travel plans for 2008. I say “nearly” because I received an airline price that I thought was fair but was unable to pull the trigger. I won’t go into much detail, but it suffices to say that the trip involved Washington DC and the Canadian Maritimes.

Next on the list? I’ll nearly book a trip to Ireland.

Even Though I Have A/C I Still Plan To Get Out Of The House
If all things go to plan tonight I will be haunting The Loft to see Manchester Orchestra. It’s been too long since I’ve seen MO in concert so I am looking forward to it. I plan to drag the camera along with me to see if I can get some shots as well.

Don’t worry Big Brother viewers. I’ll be sure to watch the episode once I get home and provide snarky commentary tomorrow.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – hopeful that when I return home that my air conditioning will still be functioning
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing John Vanderslice — “White Dove” (btw- you can stream his new record at Barsuk
Website Of The Day – You could probably better yourself by reading some Passive Aggressive Notes.
Exercise (b)Log – none
Monthly Mileage – 7 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car

August Goals
1) Get my first Ruby / Ruby on Rails program written
3) Lose 5 pounds (if at first, second, third, fourth, you don’t succeed….)

    2 things:

    1) yay! I can come visit you again! (ie: you have air!) 😉


    2) I want that dress! Might have to make my way down to EAV!

    Cool! (pun intended)

    > 2) I want that dress! Might have to make my way down to EAV!

    I think it’s a nice looking dress (hence the picture of it), but I also like the fact that I appear twice in my own photo.

    Great news Paul. AC = very important in Georgia.

    When I bought my house it did not have central AC, that was the FIRST thing I had done, even in March I knew it was going to be important.

    Stacy, let me know when you want to go shoping in the ‘hood. I could always take an afternoon off work, if you twist my arm!

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Yes, shop in the ‘hood! Successful businesses will make my house value rise and hopefully I can sell it some day in the future for a large profit.

  5. Barb says:

    and (selling point? haha) you have crazy people running thru your yard in the middle of the night……… But I’m sure you will still make a huge profit. (written from the safe town of Marietta -OTP)

  6. Oh this blog will be “hidden” when the time comes to put the house up for sale. Believe me. 🙂

    btw- I also forgot to mention that yesterday was the three year anniversary of my carjacking.
