After getting thumped for the sixth consecutive week I have left the East Atlanta Deadbeat Dads for dead. I’m fucking tired of trying only to lose again, so as much as I hate quitters I’ve joined their ranks.
Look! It’s A Shameless Self-Promotion!
I hadn’t realized it, but I never included a link to JalapeÃ±o Beach on this here blog. However, Stacy noticed and thankfully alerted me to my shortcoming yesterday.
As of today a link to my photoblog exists in the right-hand galley near that flashing Flickr badge. Now if I could only remember to update JalapeÃ±o Beach every Monday as my charter for the website dictates.
Just How Strict Do I Wish To Be?
A few hours after eating what was supposed to dinner (which consisted only of two biscuits and a beer) I found myself rummaging through my cupboards for vegetarian snacks. I saw Jello, whose origin was derived from bone marrow, and some “ham flavored” bean soup. Drat! Just how strict of a faux-vegetarian do I wish to be? If I make and eat the Jello and soup does that count as a meat day?
After much soul searching I settled on making a batch of quick grits heavily dosed with cheddar cheese. Amazingly, I thought that it was delicious.
I Know A Gal Who’s Now A Neighbor To Richard Blais
Last night I found out that one of my friends has a new neighbor, and that neighbor is none other than local-celebrity and former Top Chef cheftestant Richard Blais.
While I shan’t be hanging around stalking like paparazzi, I will keep a keen eye open when chance takes me down her very near street.
Today, Apple Will Dictate My Future
I should probably divulge that I am now an Apple stockholder before I say how super-excited about Apple’s anticipated announcement of its new laptop(s) today. As a frugal stockholder I’ll purchase this new laptop if it is everything I desire and relatively cheap, otherwise I’ll be sinking my somewhat ill-gotten gains into a refurbished Macbook, assuming such beasts exist after today.
Either way, I’m soon to be the proud papa of a new Apple laptop. Just wait until Christmas when I pair this with a new iPhone.
Tonight, I’ll Be Eating Meat
Hashing friends are meeting tonight at Graveyard Tavern for some beer and wings. That’s right, wings. That means today will be a meat-eating day for me.
Perhaps I should race home and whip up a batch of Jello that I can eat for dessert…
Digital Download Of The Week
There are a few releases today which pique my interest.
- Nikka Costa “Pebble To A Pearl”
- Keane “Perfect Symmetry”
- The Secret Machines “Secret Machines”
- Lucinda Williams “Little Honey”
Of those listed I’d probably go with The Secret Machines. If none of those tickle your fancy then you may wish to Decatur’s own Warm In The Wake a try with their new(ish) EP “Speak Plainly.”
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
