I keep getting compliments on the haircut, so I shan’t start this rant by saying don’t go to a junior stylist having no idea in mind what you want. 😉
Thou Shall Not Leave Plastics In Hot Cars
Often times you buy a gadget for your car and the manufacturer advises you not to keep it stored within your car. More times than not you, or perhaps it’s just me, ignore such advice. Such has been the case with the components which are supplied with Jill the GPS (aka my Garmin Nüvi 250). When I was nearing the ITP estate on Sunday returning from the Moreland Day Spa I went to remove the suction cup which keeps Jill affixed to the windshield. Much to my dismay the plastic handle bent, and then snapped in my fingers. I knew it had been hot in Moreland, in fact at one point on Sunday I went to the car and opened the sun roof and cracked the windows in order to allow the heat to escape. Apparently I was already too late.
Thou Shall Not Make Fun Of Tennessee, But Only Because They Have New Belgium Beer
The news has broken — some New Belgium Brewery has started to sell some of their products in Tennessee. No more will I have to trek all the way to Colorado (okay, they do sell it further East than that) to get my fix.
In fact, I have a Nashville trip scheduled for the beginning of October. You know that I will scour the city in order to return the flavor of Colorado to Georgie (since I didn’t do that when I had the opportunity a few weeks ago).
Thou Shall Not Buy A Ticket To A Concert In Advance
While I certainly will be thrilled to get some Fat Tire in Nashville the trip will not be all happiness. I am going to be up in Nashville on Thursday October 2nd for Vanderbilt University’s Career Day, which is unfortunately being held on the same day that Okkervil River is playing 40 Watt Club in Athens. Want to guess who already purchased a ticket for this show?
However, this ticket is unusual because I actually possess a physical ticket. If one of you wishes to go and is willing to take the ticket from me at some point, then email me. I will give you the ticket for free, but be warned that because of this I will not be going out of my way to do so. I’m accessible, just keep reading this blog.
ITP Flickr Pic
I snapped just a few photos at the dry-run opening of The Grange last week. There was a photographer there snapping shots for the bar, so I didn’t want to compete with her. And besides, I was there to eat and drink for free.
This was one I shot at a semi-long exposure. I kind like the effect.
Thou Shall Not Buy Apple Products Before Big Announcements
And I did not…
A Lesson Learned In The Positive
The other day I sent an email to Moo explaining the problem that I created with my order. I also asked if I were to perform a instant re-order if there were any way that I could correct the ZIP code so that this error doesn’t get repeated.
To my delight Moo said that they considered the order “lost in the mail” and were going to ship out another order to my at the corrected ZIP code! Woo Hoo! This is the sore of customer service that creates customer loyalty. I will be certain to make more purchases from Moo in order to reward them for their service.
Tonight I’ll Be Tweeting Up
Maigh has organized a meeting of Atlanta Twitterers at the Cypress Street Pint & Plate. I have no idea what to expect, but I will lug this laptop and my camera with me and will be prepared to drink a pint or two.
Digital Download Of The Week
Is back!!! It wasn’t that I wasn’t keeping tabs while I was on vacation, it was that I didn’t get around to putting them into the blog.
To show you how much I’m bummed to be missing the Okkervil River show I am going to suggest that you purchase their CD “The Stand Ins” which was released today. I downloaded it this morning from Amazon. While not as strong as “The Stage Names” it is a good Okkervil River CD, and one which shouldn’t disappoint a die-hard Okkervil River fan.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
