It’s my own fault that I’ve waited so long to get the last couple of Christmas cards that I need to mail. This morning I was expecting Target to open early (7am) during the final push toward Christmas, but my plans were foiled when I drove up and found out that they didn’t open until 8am.
First Place? Ver’ Nice!
What do three people who attended UGA and one person who attended UF have in common? We were all winners last night at Team Trivia. Against all odds we managed to take first place with the final question — beating a team that had gotten every question correct until that point!
I’ll take no credit for getting the final question correct, but I don’t have to; that’s why it’s called team trivia.
Twelve Days Of ITP Flickr Pics
Each day through Christmas I will be picking my favorite photo for each month of 2007.
While driving around southern Georgia I saw this tree standing all alone in the middle of a field. I couldn’t help but stop to photograph it, even though the weather outside was fairly crummy.
Putting Money Where My Ears Are
I have become a huge fan of This American Life (although I wish they wouldn’t recycle so many stories). Rarely am I around a radio when TAL is broadcast so I’ve subscribed to its podcast feed. Yesterday I finally decided to help make sure that TAL is continued to be delivered to my iPod by donating money to the cause. I feel a little better about myself, and will have a nice small tax deduction come next April.
Too Much Online Security
“What?” you say? That’s right, I’m here to say that all of these added layers of “security” that online institutions are adding are nothing more than a hindrance to usage.
I consider myself to be an internet ninja, and if I cannot remember how to log onto my accounts because I have to hop through two or more layers of entering passwords, identifying pictures, or answering “personal” questions then how the hell can the casual internet user?
And for fuck’s sake if I finally get to the point where I am making my payment, the system better fucking work. I’m talking directly to you AT&T!
Maybe This Will Get Some Of You To Comment
What is your favorite adult beverage? More specifically, if you were to into a package store (say Green’s, Tower, or Toco Giant in Atlanta) what is the one thing that you seek out for yourself?
For me? I love beer, but not just any beer mind you. If I was in a part of the country in which New Belgium’s products were available then I’d definitely buy one of there beers. However, I live east of the Mississippi River so that is not an option. Therefore, if I am entering a liquor store for beer then it better be something that I can’t get in my local Kroger; I’ll be looking for something from La Trappe.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – all things considered, fair
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Nirvana — “Negative Creep” (I hope that this describes my weigh in 2008)
Website Of The Day – The Big Pig Jig is very different from Atlanta’s Macy*s (nee Rich’s) Pink Pig — warning sound plays, including a voice with a Southern accent that hasn’t been prevalent in these parts for decades.
