Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

Partying on the other hand is a completely different matter.

Sunday Running Is All About The Four B’s
Bacon, Bagels, Beer, and Bullshit. I think that last one is correct. Maybe it stands for Bathroom?

As the host of our Sunday Runners’ Group you have responsibilities.

  • Provide routes of varying lengths for people to run.
  • Provide breakfast, usually in the form of bagels and some egg dish (I substituted biscuits for bagels).
  • Provide beer, and potentially mimosas or bloody marys.
  • Do not get angry if all of the beer in your refrigerator is consumed; do not get angry if all of the beer in your refrigerator is not consumed.

Yesterday I had a great group of friends arrive at the house for my turn to host. I provided bacon, an egg-sausage-cheese casserole, biscuits, and some scrambled eggs for the vegetarians.

Try as I might I couldn’t convince everyone to get off of my carport and either into the house or back yard. Even disregarding my carjacking my carport is the most dangerous part of my house.

Luckily for me the last of the gang left some time after 4pm thus sparing me the grief of watching my Jets get crushed by the Patriots.

btw- If you happen to be in East Atlanta Village in the next day or so and see “Bacon Near” written on the ground in chalk then you now are part of the inside joke.

Who Let The Dogs Out?
Prior to everyone coming over to the house I went for my own walk/run on which I made some chalk markings hoping to stop people from getting lost. On my journey I encountered four dogs wandering neighborhoods.

While I have never been attacked by a dog, I have been chased into my own house by one charging me one night. That moment put enough fear in me to be weary of dogs which are out for their own little stroll.

What the fuck, people? If you are a dog owner who can’t keep the dog from getting out of the yard then keep it in the house. If you can’t do that either then perhaps you shouldn’t be a dog owner.

(notice that I am not talking about Dawgs because they proved to have no bite on Saturday)

My bar refrigerator has died.

Goodbye Old Friend

It was the last of the “free appliances”, which were left by the previous house owners when they vacated in 1999, to die. You know that this was old (fitting for my basement) because when was the last time that you saw an appliance with a simulated wood finish?

Goodbye old friend.

Panic On The Screen Of My iBook
Slowly but surely this laptop is hinting that it will soon be time to replace it. The latest incident occurred this morning when I had a kernel panic.

For the less geeky in the crowd, a kernel panic is bad. A panic occurs when hardware such as memory or the motherboard starts to become flaky, or some software error occurs which renders the system unusable until it is restarted.

Had this been a Windows box I would have also suspected that it was spyware/malware which caused me to reboot giving the software a chance to install itself into the system directories.

How Can I Get Jill Cordes In My Bedroom?
My friend Randy sent me an email letting me know that he had heard that the show My First Place was showing a house in East Atlanta (episode HMFP-706, but there is not much information about the show online). Upon researching the web site I noticed that Jill Cordes was once, but no longer, the host of the show. Poor lass, I am sure she is down on her luck right now and I just so happen to be single at the moment…

Also, there seems to be no validity to the rumor that HGTV will be starting a series “My First Foreclosure” any time soon.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – disgruntled
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Guided By Voices — “Back To The Lake”
Website Of The Day – I know someone who wants to lose weight. Maybe I should send my reflection to Gimme20. (WARNING: Disgustingly Web2.0 design — they’ve even stolen Flickr’s color scheme)
Exercise (b)Log – walking/running/wheezing, 4 miles
Monthly Mileage – 4 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car

September Goals
1) Get my first Ruby / Ruby on Rails program written
2) Lose 5 pounds (if at first, second, third, fourth, you don’t succeed….)
3) Take now fewer than three photos a day
4) Listen to (and review) one CD a day in September

    New mini fridge = new “welcome home, mini fridge!” party

    Ha, that’s certainly a good idea. I have to wait until the weather cools down and all my work-travel ends though.

    So, I got STUCK watching Big Brother for a few minutes at a friends last night.
    Sorry Stacy – that is a ridiculous show……… & Paul, I can see why you gave up on it. What is with the Tommy Lee look-a-like that thinks he is so cool?

  4. Where I’m from, we shoot wandering dogs. And pretty much anything else that moves or looks like fun to fill full of holes. You should get a .45 and bust a cap in roaming dogs.
