And For My Next Trick…

Tuesday night – concert at Center Stage
Wednesday night – TweetUp
Tonight – the play “26 Miles” at the Hertz Stage…. that is if I can locate my ticket.

More Than Just A Social, Last Night’s TweetUp May Have Pushed Me To Start Shooting Again
I met up with many of the familiar troublemakers last night. Being I’m a seasoned happy-hour drinker beer was plentiful because I opened a tab at the bar. However the free appetizers I expected never materialized so I wound up drinking on an empty stomach, well as empty as my rotund mid-section gets, and that would prove to be a rookie mistake. Other than that Eclipse di Luna was the same Eclipse di Luna that I visited a month ago — busy, dark, and almost too loud to hold a conversation.

One conversation I held may have been rather beneficial. It seems that I’ve been ignoring a lot lately, including the announcement of a day of photography at a local gym during boxing matches in April. This was something I was keen on getting into. As of the other day the event was sold out, but last night I heard that there may have been a cancellation so I may be able to sneak in. That would be sweet.

Alternative title for today’s photo is “I Have The Power!”.

Even If I Were Thin I Doubt Having Dinner At Waffle House Is Great For Me
There I was. After having a beer too many on an empty stomach I needed dinner. Eating at Ecplise di Luna didn’t seem like the plan for me so out I went. Had I the taste for Chinese I would have landed at Bamboo Luau on Cheshire Bridge, but I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese lately so I wanted something else.

Why that “something else” wound up being Waffle House again, I am still not sure. At the Waffle House I ordered the quarter-pound bacon cheese burger with hash browns. Oh health food, how I love you so!

Is it any wonder I’m feeling a little sluggish this morning?

    From today’s link:

    Did you know…

    -that all Chuck Norris Facts are just Kim Jong-Il Facts that escaped across the North Korean border?

    – that unlike the first two epistles to the community at Thessalonika, in which Paul expressed love and support to the Christians in the city while attempting to answer their questions, the apostle completely loses it in the third letter, and liberally sprinkles his escathology with insults like “doofus” and “morons”?

    Maybe that’s tomorrows blog entry? What do you mean, “not THAT Paul?”
