Today I’m coordinating an entire day of interviewing of potential software engineers. We will have seventeen students from around the Southeast here interviewing for positions. So if you don’t hear from me immediately today, you’ll know why.
If Only I Knew About Olympic Softball….
Meet The Hashers finished in a respectable, but somewhat disappointing second place last night at Team Trivia last night at Raging Burrito in Decatur. I failed to know the name of the Olympic softball pitcher who struck out a couple of Major League Baseball players. I did redeem myself by having a cell phone that could check out Team Trivia’s MySpace page priot to the start of the competition for the night’s free answer (which would have been another sports question that I would not have known the answer to).
Living like fat cats our assembled team of five managed to rack up a $110 bill, which was thankfully partially offset by the $70 bar cash we had banked from previous Team Trivia outings. I’m still not too sure how we managed to spend so much money, but we did.
What’s Up With Crescent Moon?
I had time to kill before the start of last night’s trivia. As I wandered the mean streets of Decatur I noticed that Crescent Moon was closed for the evening. At first this made sense because I always associate the restaurant with breakfast and weekend brunch. But then I noticed their hours posted on their entrance. It clearly stated that on a Thursday night they should be open until 9:30pm. It was also clear that they were not open, and it wasn’t even 7:00pm when I strolled by.
Anyone have the scoop?

Here’s a bank closing that occurred years ago.
While wandering around Decatur last night before Team Trivia I saw this old, currently unused bank teller window proudly still displaying its NationsBank logo.
“Run” To The Hills
Quotation marks provided because Run is really Drive. 😉
Weather permitting tomorrow I will be going on a quest for the beginning Fall colors and a vegetarian restaurant in BBQ Country. Currently the weather outlook for towns like Ellijay, GA look good for photography (partly cloudy, 20% chance of rain). Of course this task will require me to wake up really early tomorrow morning in order to complete the ninety-minute or so drive up there before the sun rises.
I’m taking suggestions for places to go shoot this time of year, as well as the names of vegetarian restaurants in North Georgia or the surrounding areas.
And if you are interested in keeping up with Fall colors, check out the US Forest Services’ Fall Colors page.
The Waiting Is Hard, But The Payoffs May Be Worth It
I’ve been itching to purchase an Apple Macbook for some time. However, there have been rumors abound that Apple was going to make some sort of laptop announcement this Fall. Yesterday the tech blogs spilled the beans on an invitation received from Apple. The invitation mentions that this gathering will put the focus back on laptops. Woo Hoo!
