I chose not to ride Marta today because I have a lot of preparation to do today for a meeting and wanted to get into the office early. While I didn’t get out of the house as early as desired I still thought I was early enough to beat traffic. And then I found out about the accident on I85 as I attempted to join the slowly-migrating masses on the connector. Plan ‘B’ was to take I75 to I285 and while this increased the distance traveled, it also decreased the amount of time it took for me to get to work.
I don’t follow politics closely but I can’t help hear about who’s running. I’ve seen many signs for Ron Paul and up until yesterday I was confused when I asked the question “Isn’t he a Libertarian?” and people responded “No, he’s a Republican.”
While listening to Adam Curry’s “Daily Source Code” yesterday in which he interviewed Ron Paul, Paul mentioned that he once ran as a Libertarian. What do you know? I was right all this time.
Hunting And Gathering
Last night’s traffic clusterfuck on Briarcliff Road (do you sense a theme here?) forced me off the road and into a restaurant for an early dinner. I would have gone for a photostroll if there was anything of interest in the neighborhood in which I was stuck.
Because I arrived home later than expected, and with a fully belly, I chose to spend the rest of the night migrating my music collection to my mac, going through the scads of old computer parts to see which ones will be recycled this weekend, and watching tv — yes, I watched Survivor:China and The Office.
As an aside, if you do like I have and sync your iPod to a new computer don’t forget to sync your podcasts. If you forget you will be like me and get an unexpected surprise when you try to play one.
I won’t throw out any Survivor spoilers here, but suffice to say I was not saddened by the person who was ousted.
Was anyone else surprised that that NBC didn’t make us go to their website in order to watch Michael Scott’s Dunder-Mifflin commercial?

It’s been a dry year in Georgia
Water is now so precious we padlock the well pumps in our public parks.
Happy Leopard Day
If you are a Mac fan you know what I mean.
I could go see Matt Pond PA tonight at The Loft (I’ve already purchased a ticket by mistake — but that’s another story) or I can hang in my neighborhood for a night of drinking. As it turns out, a group of EAV Buzzers will be invading Gravity Pub for one last hurrah. I am tempted to go up there with my camera and get photos for my personal historical archive.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
