For those of you reading this in tropical locales let me tell you that it is really damn cold right now in Atlanta. For those of you reading this in locales which normally get this cold, let me tell you that it is really damn cold right now in Atlanta. The fact that the wall closest to my desk is all glass is not really helping matters either — I even have a small space heater in the office that is losing the battle.
Will I Ever Be Hungry Again?
I know that I bitch about my weight constantly, so you’d think that not desiring food would be a good thing. However, I can’t believe that I’ve not really been hungry since Sunday. I’ve been eating (and drinking) since, but it has definitely not been because I felt the need to eat. Not wanting to eat is a very strange feeling for me.
ITP Flickr Pic
This is Randy holding the prized possession earned by winning at bowling.
I hope that posting this photo doesn’t ruin my chances for staying at the house when I come up to North Carolina. 🙂
There Is One Thing That Has Warmed My Heart
The other day I received one of those unsolicited, completely unexpected messages of thanks that can only make one feel like a million bucks. The message was from a Flickr friend of mine who has just completed the extremely impressive task of taking a photo-a-day for a year. In the message she said that a comment I made on one of her (amazing) photos was the impetus for convincing her to take the leap and start the process.
The best thing of all? Those of us that got to see a new photo each day were the real winners.
Speaking Of Long-Term Flickr Projects
On January 1, 2008 a new long-term Flickr project called the Atlanta Grid Project launched. Each month one or two new ITP (yippee!) map grids will be identified and the group members will go out and take photos of the areas in the current grid. It’s been calculated that if we do two map grids per month then the project will take us about ten years to complete. If you live in the Atlanta area and you are a photo-geek I suggest that you go check the group out.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – wishing that I was warm
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Manchester Orchestra — “Golden Ticket” (if you’ve not jumped on the Manchester Orchestra bandwagon you really should)
Website Of The Day – The other day I renewed my “Friendship” membership with the Len Foote Hike Inn. With the high cost of airline travel expect me to be making more trips to locations such as this in 2008. I promise (or threaten) to bring my camera equipment.
