Happy St Patrick’s Day to all. Like every other holiday which has occurred this year I’m not planning on participating in any St. Patrick’s Day revelry today.
A Night In Roswell
Last night I fought traffic, and oh there was plenty to fight, to get myself from the office to Roswell for the Roswell Photographic Society. Last night’s meeting was the monthly critique meeting and even though I didn’t have a photo to enter I decided I wanted to go to see what others are producing. Overall the shots were good, but I think that the night’s evaluator, local photographer Kathryn Kolb, was a bit too lenient with her critiques.
I’m enjoying participating in RPS meetings, although I must admit I despise driving to Roswell after work, and getting home after 9:00 PM makes for a really long day — especially on a Monday.
OMFG, I Never Would Have Thunk It
Last night after the Roswell Photographic Society meeting I needed dinner. Since it was getting late I didn’t want fancy sit-down in Roswell and after the Baconnator fiasco of a few months ago I was once again avoiding “fast food.”
I got off of 400 at Sidney Marcus and started to ponder. It was now near 9:00 PM and feared that most of the places I’d desire would be closed (ITP ain’t Manhattan, after all). Where did I wind up? Hehehehe….. Waffle House. That’s right. Waffle House.
I have absolutely no problem eating breakfast food 24/7, but I wasn’t into eating eggs last night. Instead I went for the bacon cheeseburger (Baconnator be damned!) with a side of hash browns. Hell’s yeah it was good! You can guarantee that I shall return some time in the future. I don’t see why I shouldn’t, it’s not like I’m trying to impress anyone at the moment.
