Okay, half of the work week is over, and I’ve attended my final career fair for the year. Now is the time for things to start looking up.
Why Has Target Become My Nemesis?
When I went Target the other day to purchase a replacement French Press they were out of the one that I wanted. When I went to stop at a different Target on my way back to the office from the career fair, I found out that the Johnson Ferry Target in Sandy Springs had moved! Dangen! It was a that point that I vaguely remembered seeing major construction on Roswell Road just ITP and thinking that they were going to move the Target there.
A new French Press has been ordered from Amazon and could be here tomorrow, but probably arrive Monday. No, I didn’t buy the MacDaddy one from Frieling, instead I purchased the insulated one from Nissan.
And Why Is A “Cup” Not A “Cup?”
While shopping for the French Press I kept seeing references to models that where “8 Cups.” only to find out that they held 32-34 ounces of liquid. WTF? Do I not correctly remember that a Cup of liquid is 8 ounces? If that is true shouldn’t a 8 Cup French Press hold 64 ounces? When did a cup of coffee get defined to be only 4 ounces? I’m so confused.
Have A Mac Return, Get A Shuffle
Round and round I went yesterday trying to get Apple to agree to take back the faulty Macbook. I talked to a lot of people who were more than happy to be helping me, but unfortunately I talked to a lot of people. Finally I talked to a person who could get the job done. As an added bonus, this person was also able to offer me a free 2GB iPod Shuffle as an apologetic gift. Yeah, Apple knows the power of my blog, especially since I’m a shareholder as well. 😉
The Accidental Carnivore
Watch out! Sweet Tomatoes is culinary minefield. I went to Sweet Tomatoes last night to have a “healthy, vegetarian” meal. I think I had neither. At some point in the eating I tasted the delicious taste and texture of chicken and realized that all of the salad offerings were not vegetarian. Ooops. The healthy aspect was ruined by me as I ate a little too much of everything…. In my defense I only drank water and skipped dessert.

Hmmm, I’m down to my last good shot from last weekend’s shooting.
I guess that it’s time to get out and shoot again.
I’m (Not Yet) A Georgia Voter
The plan was to wake up early and make it an early voting place before a line could form. That was a great plan until I slept later than expected. Dangen! I’m thinking that Friday morning will not be a good time to get out and vote early, so it looks like I’ll be voting with the masses on Election Day next Tuesday. I suppose that I should load up the iPod with enough content to keep me entertained while I wait in line.
Delta + Northwest = Delwest?
It’s official, Delta and Northwest have merged. Now please lower your prices and stay in business. That is all.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – better, still many things to conquer, but better nonetheless
Current Music – listen to last week’s “The Splendid Table” podcast. It’s sounding very familiar, I wonder if it’s a repeat.
Website Of The Day – I love bacon. I love mayonnaise. Why wouldn’t I love Baconnaise too? Surprisingly, it’s also vegetarian! I can’t wait to find it in the store.
