I’m skipping George’s tonight; I’ve got my reasons. Instead I am going take all evening as “Paulie Time” and do a solo run followed by a lovely, yet undetermined, vegetarian dinner at home.
Take A Picture, It Will Last Longer
Yesterday I signed up for a Food Photography Workshop being offered by Atlanta Photography on Saturday October 25th. I’m really looking forward to the event as it will be held at South City Kitchen and I’m hoping that some of the food will be safe to eat.
Good Times, Bad Times
Here’s a smidgen of the “entertainment” last night at the Graveyard Tavern.
Combine annoying, somewhat drunk people screaming at the top of their lungs into a microphone, with $0.40 wings which look as if Graveyard Tavern has eliminated East Atlanta’s pigeon population and you had the makings of a rough evening.
Then there was the fact that for the better (worse?) part of the evening there was but one waitress because the rest of the waitstaff called in. After waiting at least twenty minutes for service I went to the bar to order my own beer. In the waitress’ defense she was severely in the weeds taking care of the entire restaurant. However, when at the end of the evening she erroneously accused us of leaving a $1 tip on a $89 bill — we explained her error to her — you’ll understand why I believe that the Graveyard Tavern is dead to me.
Lance Kerwin, Wherefore Art Thou Lance Kerwin?
One of the positives of the evening was watching part of a painfully slow movie called Salem’s Lot staring David Soul (“Hutch”) and one-time childhood star Lance Kerwin (who for the older-folk in the crowd was “James” of “James At 15”).
For the life of my I thought I had made “James At 15” references within the confines of this blog, but all searches produced no evidence of this. “James At 15” was one of those television shows that I watched in my pre-pubescent years in order to find out what life was going to be like when I turned fifteen. Would you be surprised if I told you that my life turned out nothing like James’; I figured that you wouldn’t.
Today I Am Wearing What May Be The Ugliest Race Shirt I Have Ever Received
Those of you who rode the Wilson 100 back in September(?), have you looked at the shirt we received? Honestly until today I had not even though it has been through one laundry cycle.
The Wilson 100 shirt
(not pictured because my point and shoot’s battery needs to be recharged and I keep forgetting) is so busy that it is rather hideous. Think NASCAR. There, now you have the idea…
Now pictured thanks to Martha!

There is a lot of abandoned machinery near the abandoned copper mine in Ducktown, TN.
I have a feeling I broke a law or two while walking around the area, but at least I left with a few shots that please me.
Apple Has Left Me With Much Confusion
Announcements were made yesterday by Apple and now I don’t know what the hell I am going to buy. The new Macbooks look nice, but also carry a hefty price tag. Old Macbooks came down in price, but not nearly enough to warrant their purchase. And the original option of purchasing a refurbished (now old) Macbook still lingers.
I guess that I will do what I always seem to do…. wait.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
