This morning I was miffed when the Marta driver would re-open the doors for me, then not a minute later another train arrived at the station. Upon getting to Five Points I had to wait for a while for a train, which turned out to be a Doraville train, but was pleased to see that a North Springs train was hot on its tail, scheduled to arrive a minute later.

Oh It Sucks, But It Only Sucks Half As Bad
It’s funny what one misinterpretation can do to one’s taxes. I will not have to declare bankruptcy after all. Okay, it wasn’t that bad but Christmas will be a lot happier for me now.

Superbad Was Actually Pretty Good
With a bit of time to kill I dropped off a television to a friend whose place has recently been robbed. With an offer of a glass of wine, the idea of watching a movie with two attractive women and the most incredible dog ever*, and the possibility of ordering in a pizza (a way to my heart) what was I to do? Go to George’s to run and then drink beer? Be real….

The movie we watched was Superbad for which I must admit that I had very low expectations. However the fact that one of the “stars” of the movie was Michael Cera (“George Michael” from Arrested Development) made the idea of watching this palatable. I was amazed by how much I enjoyed this flick. Go ahead and put it on your Netflix queue, we’ll wait — and tell them that McLovin sent you.

btw- if you are expecting something along the line of Schindler’s List then you may want to go back to your Netflix queue and remove Superbad.

* not really but I don’t want to make anyone feel badly 🙂

Twelve Days Of ITP Flickr Pics
Each day through Christmas I will be picking my favorite photo for each month of 2007.

Today: September
Why It's The Hamburglar!

Wow, September feels so long ago. Looking back it was a good month which included trips to Lake Hartwell, Gainesville, and Miami. One of the only blemishes on the month was that damn parking ticket I received at that two-bit school Florida Atlantic University.

Trivial Matters Back-To-Back
As it stands right now I will be returning to Raging Burrito in Decatur for trivia tonight. I don’t know what I will eat tonight, but I may avoid the burritos after last week’s mediocrity.

OTP? I Believe That I May Have Heard About It
I am normally not one to promote the goings-on outside of Atlanta’s precious perimeter, but it’s nearly Christmas so whatthefuck. Check out this music video called “Bumpin’ In The ‘Burbs”

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – relieved
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Sunset Rubdown — “Up On Your Leopard…” (I don’t think they are referencing Apple’s latest operating system)
Website Of The Day – Have you ever wanted to read books by email? If so, check out Daily Lit where they will mail you (or supply RSS feeds) chapters of books for you to read.
Exercise (b)Log – nothing
Monthly Foot Mileage – 20.1 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To WorkMarta
Monthly Marta Rides – 10

December Goals
1) Run no fewer than 50 miles
2) Ride Marta no fewer than twenty times (ten round-trips)
3) Read at least one book

    >and the most incredible dog ever

    I won’t tell Ruben you said this, if he happens to read your blog I’m not responsible for what he might do 😉

    This is the second recommendation for SuperBad this week, I guess I’ll need to make room on my netflix que…sorry Dr. Who.

  2. Stacy says:

    Woooooah! Hold up there, girl Martha! You’re bumping Doctor Who?! Are you crazy??

    I’m not sure if I’ve ever told you this, but it’s in my future to have all of David Tennant’s babies. Our offspring will not be amused if you bump his father for SuperBad. (If you’re in the new season one yet, it’s still unacceptable, but more forgiveable. Perhaps. I’ll think on that.)

    Oh, and Hi Paulie! This is your blog, right? 😉

    I’m not sure what dinner will be for me either, but your pic-o’-the-month pretty much ensures a Happy Meal in my future for lunch!

  3. Martha says:

    I don’t even deserve to watch Dr. Who, I can’t seem to count to six. The first disc was #2? I think I have things in the correct order now.

    I’ve seen all of season 1…Sci Fi Channel was running a marathon on day…first time I had ever seen it and I sat there for hours watching it. While I do think that David is a better sire for your babies, I find Christopher somewhat more interesting to watch.

  4. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Season 1 of Dr. Who? Wasn’t that made like thirty years ago? 🙂

  5. Stacy says:

    That’s why I specifically called it the “new” season one, m’dear! 🙂

    And, Martha, just wait: David grows on ya, he does. Just like Martha will (oh, you’ll see!!) even though you thought there could be no following Rose.

    Oh God I’m geeking out! Phil, jump on in here and save me any time. 🙂

    The scary part about that whole conversation above, is I know exactly what you are talking about, without ever watching the series. I live with someone tha thas seen almost all the old & new Dr. Who. (he has a few left on the Netfix list). Which reminds me – I need to check my queue? Any recommendations for movies besides Superbad? I was thinking something a little more serious. Has anyone seen The Last King of Scotland?

  8. Martha says:

    Not serious but funny Kinky Boots (if you like British comedy)

    End of Suburbia…if you want to have the crap scared out of you (documentary)

    The Holiday… it is just that time of year (I watched it last year and was really able to relate to one of the characters

  9. Miguel says:

    I watched “Superbad” and thought it was fantastic. I had no idea teenagers these days speak like teenagers in PR did almost two decades ago. And the soundtrack was fantastic! If only my local library had it…

    What’s wrong with the “Raging Burrito”? Do I need to drop it from my list of caterers for my last meal?

    “Last King of Scotland” was pretty good. Then again, I haven’t seen anything I didn’t like Forrest Whitaker and Gillian Anderson. I would also recommend “The Grifters”, “Children of Men” and “Munich”, all which I recently saw and enjoyed. Barb: If you want more recommendations, send me an email and I’ll add you to my Netflix friend’s list.

    As for the good Doctor, I’ll stick with the music and not the sci-fi when it comes to the British.

  10. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Miguel, last week the burrito I ate was really mediocre. The chips & salsa were good though.

    btw- my Arrested Development set came in, I’ll return yours asap.

  11. Barb says:

    We did see Children of Men, it was very good. i think this writer’s strike is going to be good for me, I might get my money’s worth out of nextflix again.
    I’m thinking I need a TV show in the list, Allan doesn’t like Arrested Development (but he doesn’t like most situation comedies), so I’m thinking maybe Dexter. Has anyone watched much of that Showtime show?
