The “Best By” date on this morning’s Clif Bar breakfast is 10-Apr-10. I’m eating it anyway. What can I say, I like punishing myself.
For A Good Time…
Last night I made it to the Hertz Stage of the Alliance Theatre for “Spoon Lake Blues.” The play was a rather entertaining comedy as long as you can suspend reality for ninety minutes. You will also enjoy it more if you do not get stuck sitting next to a man who open-mouth chews his gum through the entire ninety-minute, intermission-less play. Ninety fucking minutes of cud chewing which I was incapable of ignoring. What the hell has happened to society? I seriously considered asking the guy to stop. Had there been an intermission I would have changed seats.
I was once again one of the youngest patrons in the theater. I’m nearly forty-six years old. This continues to perplex me.
All inconsiderate people aside I highly recommend you make it to the Hertz Stage for this place. I thought that “Carapace” was a better play, but “Spoon Lake Blues” is a comedy so it’ll appeal to more people.
I’m Still Not Even On The Tail Of The Cutting Edge
I’d make a terrible influencer. Weeks ago I saw that Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand had opened and I’ve yet to eat there. I almost made it last night, but my 10pm drive-by time barely missed their open hours (though Fri/Sat they are open until 4am!). I’ve heard the food is good, but I can neither confirm nor deny.
I guess I’ll add Delia’s to the incredibly long list of “Places at which I want to eat.” Hmmm, maybe there’s a new statistic / goal in the making…
This Might Be The Year
I’m contemplating driving to Montgomery, AL tomorrow to take in one, and perhaps two, Montgomery Biscuits minor-league baseball games. There is an added incentive to my madness. A girl? Don’t I wish. No, cash. If I stay another night at a Choice Hotels hotel this weekend I’ll earn a $50 gas card — which will just about pay for the tank of gas necessary to make the Atlanta-to-Montgomery and back trip.
It’s a plan so crazy that it just might work.
My other options of Chattanooga (for a Lookouts game) and Asheville (for a Tourists game) are less promising due to weather predictions.
