Just Noshing On A Year-Old Clif Bar

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.

    I think I would have gotten up during the play, said to the guy, “excuse me, but I have to find another seat, your loud gum chewing is ruining this play for me!”
    I hate gum chewing like that.

    Paulie, with a little better planning, you could have 2 addtional riders to the Biscuits’ game… maybe there is an afternoon game some weekend day soon? Or Columbus for that matter.

    Shame the jerk chewed his cud the entire time… but glad you still managed to enjoy the play.

    And thanks Sally for the lovely card!! Ever thought of going into business?


  3. I’ll keep you two in mind for future trips down that way. I think most Sunday minor-league games are afternoon affairs, but I’ll have to check.

    since I can’t put this on FB from work – you all get to see the next great pork creation:


  5. To me that looks seriously delicious!

  6. Barb says:

    it does look good, doesn’t it.

    We already knew this, but nice to get it confirmed.
    (yes, I’m bored at work this afternoon)
