Late Night Makes For Rough Morning

After drinking way too many beers and returning home from The EARL at 1am I am struggling to get motivated.

Boy That Sounds Familiar
If you remember 1995 and listened to 99x back then you were probably at last night’s Meat Puppets show (unless of course you are Terri who had months to find a substitute teacher and blew me off. :P).

If some of the songs sounded more familiar than you expected them to, you might own the Meat Puppets latest CD and didn’t realize it. That is my affliction. While perusing my iTunes library this morning I discovered that I actually own their latest cd.

The Meat Puppets put on an energy-filled show to a mostly-filled room. The crowd seemed older than most crowds which frequent The EARL and oddly the room also seemed less smoky. The only song that the band seemed lackluster on was their biggest hit from back-in-the-day “Backwater”, which they played as their final song.

This is another shot from the walkabout I did the other day.

X Marks The Spot, Twice

This is located behind Amsterdam Outlets in midtown. I tried to get the railroad crossing “X” to be within the windmill’s “X”.

Will Thirteen Be An Unlucky Number?
The other day I became a pseudo-season ticket holder for the Atlanta Thrashers. I wound up getting a single ticket for their “All-Star 13 Game” package.

I have always wanted to be a real season ticket holder, but the cost of hockey games is way to high for me, not to mention the additional costs associated with games (read “beer money”).

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – I’m not at liberty to divulge this information
Current Music – Listening to the Daily Giz Wiz podcast
Website Of The Day – Need to put up a chalkboard anywhere you have a blank wall? Check out Wallies.
Exercise (b)Log – walking, 2.5 miles
Monthly Mileage – 6.5 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

    I totally forgot about the Meat Puppets! Sorry, Paulie…I also blew off going to Crowded House as my week has been a cluster eff :(. Hartwell will be a welcome respite from such recent shiteousness…

    I plan on doing the Turkey trail on Saturday as my hip is still outta whack…your knee, Martha’s knee, my hip- we sound like a bunch o’ whingers, don’t we ;)?

    29 hours and 30 minutes…

    -T (SW)

  2. Barb says:

    Since I’ve never been to Hartwell – is there a “never leave camp” group? I have to get packed tonight….. and wasn’t sure about if I want to leave camp. I don’t want to get on the injured list with all you cool kids.

    also – to make Paulie jealous, Stacy & I are meeting for lunch at Tasy China. okay, not really just to make you jealous, it is a convienent location for her not to get lost. (you know, she is an ITP person).

  3. Gentri says:

    There will probably be a decent sized “Never leave the lake” group!

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    No worries Terri, I’m just having some fun.

    I’m so far behind in preparation and concerned about the weather that I might not make it up to Hartwell until Saturday morning.

    Yes Barb, there will be a large group who refuse to leave the lake and beer in order to pile into a car to go to a hash. Lazy? Us? Naaaaah.

    And fooey on you for going to Tasty China! Some of the Flickr folks are planning to go next week…. when I cannot make it. Argh!

  5. Terri (SW) says:

    I never get to go to Tasty China…WWAAAHHHHH!!!!!

    I do enjoy the hash at Hartwell…especially getting in the lake afterwards and never leaving.

    Y’all should be able to find us easily…Lenette (Psychedelic P*ssy) and I have some funness planned for our “compound” 😀

  6. Martha says:

    There is going to be a big effort to get everyone to do something on Saturday other than sit around drinking all afternoon, so says the Queen.

    Trail is said to be short and cars will be waiting at the end to take people back when they finish. She is hoping to have everyone back at camp by 3-3:30.

    Come on Barb, you don’t want to miss the whatever stupid thing we may do that gets at least one more of us injured on trail.

    Only 5 hours 8 minutes left of work this week. I’ll be leaving straight from my doctor/mri appointment.

  7. Martha says:

    PS it is pretty cool how the comments fade in and out when you submit.

  8. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    What are we now going to a fitness camp?

    I wish I could take credit for the comment coolness, but I cannot.

  9. Barb says:

    I’ll bring the proper attire for hashing, just in case the evil bad influences don’t make me stay in the water. No injuries is my motto, I’ve got a sore elbow, and it isn’t getting better, so I may have to break down & go to a doctor someday myself. (no elbow jokes please)

    The weather will be fine, think possitive, it never rains in GA…… by the way, are the directions posted? I need to get those printed out.

    and Paulie – any time you want to venture up here to Marietta, just let me know, I can go to Tasty China more than once a month……. really.

  10. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Barb, my motto is always “No injuries beer can’t fix”.

    The directions are on

    I would post them here but I cannot copy and paste from the Black Sheep / Southern Comfort website.

  11. Terri (SW) says:

    Print these – you will need them

    Take I85 north to exit 177 and turn right. go 5.2 miles – convenience store and gutted Shell station on right. Turn left onto Spur 77 here. Go to Stop sign and turn left. Go 2.4 miles to Mt. Hebron Dr. Main Road bears left here and you turn right. Immediately on Mt. Hebron turn left again onto New Hope. (When I say Immediately I mean there is a house in between these two roads and it has no room on either side so I really mean immediately.)
    Go to end of New Hope and turn right onto Boleman Hill Rd. Go through stop sign at BP station and proceed 1.0 miles to an intersection. At this intersection turn left. This is Crawford’s Ferry Rd. Go exactly 1.8 miles to a gravel road on left – Robins Road – I will mark it when I get there – before dark. First turn on right will be Family Rd. Take this turn and follow to end. Do not block road with vehicle. Pull to side and come to house and find out what else to do.

    Bring camp chairs

  12. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    > Bring camp chairs

    And Advil

  13. Martha says:

    Don’t forget something for the tummy also!

  14. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    And on a complete tangent, has anyone heard if Betsy made it back? I was surprised that she didn’t make it to George’s last night. Perhaps she was re-bonding with Reese? 😀

  15. Barb says:

    thanks for the directions!

    camp chairs, advil, extra food………….. got it.

  16. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    also add

    – sunblock
    – ear plugs
    – Pepto-Bismol

  17. Martha says:

    FYI, it does look like some rain may head our way tomorrow afternoon/evening. I will be bringing my canopy and you all are invited to hang out there and share some wine and snacks with me tomorrow if you so choose.

  18. Barb says:

    and mini tiny corn?

  19. betsy says:

    I’m back Paulie, and barely. Have to spend time catching up on ITP blog reading. Thanks for your bacon text on Sunday–Was driving on the Highway 1 on Big Sur when I got it. Bacon and Big Sur don’t go in the same sentence. It feels weird to be back, just like it felt weird to be there. Think I might be just weird. Or is it just everyone else?

    Just a few days in Northern California gets you existential.

    See you weirdos at Hartwell!

  20. Andrew says:

    On a completely unrelated tangent to anything in your post today… Have you seen the lineup for the Austin City Limits Festival? I need to pay more attention to real world events because I’m sorry that today is the first I’ve heard of it.

  21. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    I hadn’t paid attention, most likely because I have run out of vacation time this year. 🙁
