I wish I was announcing the purchase of a new mobile device. Instead, I have been selected to go on a trouble call in McDonough, GA later this afternoon. So I guess that I will be getting a jump on the long weekend?
Read Along With Me
Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
It could be that if I were afraid to just “be me” I would be naturally funny. It could be that a humorous response does flick through my mind, but fear of what people might think if I just blurted out my thoughts kills it.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
Nary A Tweet About Trivia
I just realized that today is Friday (durrr) and that no one put out a call to play trivia last night. Huh. I know that I could have been the one to initiate interest, but I normally don’t these days. And for some reason I forgot that yesterday was Thursday. So this is what old age is going to be like….
Going Mobile… In A Good Way
Even with ridiculously high gas prices I’ve decided to go on a road trip tomorrow. Tomorrow morning I’ll be waking up before the crack of dawn and driving to Mitchell, GA to visit Hamburg State Park Why Hamburg? Why not? The plan is to take the direct route to Mitchell, and then when I am ready to return to civilization, take a slow roll through the towns of Sparta, Eatonton, and Monticello. Hopefully I’ll either find a kick-ass restaurant along the way home, or I’ll get back in time to cook up a chicken I started thawing in the refrigerator the other day.
ITP Flickr Pic
Another shot taken for my People Photography class.
This guy is named Greg and he works at Le Petite Marche in Kirkwood who was nice enough to be a subject for Maigh and me.
I Want To Relaunch Jalapeño Beach
Of the many burning desires I possess the one which has been nagging me the most is the fact that I let my photoblog Jalapeño Beach die. Flickr is alright and all, but nothing says “I take photography seriously” like having your own virtual gallery. If I can make the time this weekend I think that I will try to resurrect it.
Been Trying To Figure Out What To Do On My Birthday?
Don’t worry, you still have about two months…
However, the Old 97’s have decided that their gift to me will be to play Variety Playhouse on July 22nd. Tickets go on sale today (and I’d suggest avoiding purchasing from TicketMaster). Guess who will be buying himself one of many early birthday presents?
Have A Happy And Safe Memorial Day Weekend
For the one or two of you who aren’t in America, nor have lived in America, this weekend is Memorial Day weekend. What does that mean? One of my six precious paid holidays, the beginning of our traditional “driving season”, the Indianapolis 500, beer, and in days gone by — parades. It also means that a lot of people will be getting killed on the roads and waterways of America. Be safe. Watch out for the “other” guy. Return Tuesday to read my blog (of course you’ll have at least two entries to read then because I plan to write on Monday). Cheers all!
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…

Website Of The Day – This week a great friend lost one of her pups. While Ruben was dog-enough to drink real beer, perhaps you want to start your canine’s drinking habit with Beer For Dogs.
