I am here to say that late posts are not always due to my laziness. While I would have posted a little later than desired this morning because I dropped the Jackmobile at Curry Honda for service, the greater cause of today’s delay was my inability to get to my website this morning.
And Now I Find Out…
It figures that the week after I get my first photo back from Mpix that I;d watch an entire episode of Photoshop User TV that is dedicated to ordering from Mpix. With the tips they provided I bet my picture would look ten times better.
Oh well, next time…
Roll Out The Red Carpet
Last night I showed up to the Woodruff Arts Center and was surprised to see a photographer and a red carpet. All for the first play of the Hertz Stage? Nope. It was the Opening Night of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Immediately my long-sleeved collared shirt and jeans were considered “under-dressed” as I passed men in tuxedos and women in cocktail gowns.
The play I was to see, The Second City’s “Welcome To Atlanta: Too Busy To Hate / Too Hard To Commute”, was a historical recreation of the best of Chicago’s Second City comedy group skits altered for Atlanta themes along with “new” improv comedy. I should admit that I like improv comedy, but only when performed at the highest level — otherwise I usually cringe. For me the highlights of the show were the rehearsed skits; I felt that the improv skits fell on their face. Be warned that the show is two-hours long with a fifteen-minute intermission. There was also a “bonus” improv-only encore which added an addition thirty minutes to the evening.
As per usual for Atlanta’s theater scene I was in the bottom twentieth-percentile of patron age. I happened to be seated next to an attractive female who was at the show alone, and I once again dropped the ball by not being able to generate small talk. And I wonder why I have been single for so long…
No Hashing For Me, I’ve Got Other Things To Do
Tomorrow I will be one of the judges at the annual
Stone Mountain Great Miller Lite Chili Cook-Off. Yep, I’ll be a judge! I know this will devastate my hopes of losing weight this weekend and I’m okay with that.
On Sunday I will be using my eyes and then not using my eyes. I plan to wake early and get some daybreak photography in somewhere at an undetermined/undisclosed location. I then plan to head to Atlantic Station (yeah, I know) in order to participate in the Dialog In The Dark Exhibition. “Dialog In The Dark” is an hour-long tour through an everyday life of that of a blind person.
Dialog In The Dark’s visually impaired guides lead visitors on a journey through a series of darkened galleries created to replicate everyday experiences. Without familiar sight clues, visitors learn to “see” in a completely new way with their non-visual senses.
I’ve always been intrigued by deaf and blind people, but notsomuch of the dumb, and am really looking forward to this exhibition.
Happy Birthday ITP Reader Debbie!
(I must admit it tickles me to death when I use the “ITP Reader” preface).
Happy birthday Debbie, aka “Yes I Wood”! Debbie is one of the proprietors of the Moreland Day Spa and provides one of the best spreads of food that I have ever encountered. Watch out for her though as she is usually the dominoes scorekeeper and miraculously wins quite often. (I think she cheats)
