Seems like I’ve heard that before.
Delia’s And Me, We’re Like Oil And Water
Around 7pm last night I headed out to eat my first meal at Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand. Traffic on Moreland was heavy so I drove a circuitous route to get there. When I finally started to pull up to the building I noticed that it was dark. WTF. “Are they closed on
Monday, wait it’s Wednesday?” I thought. Then I realized that the traffic light at Moreland/Glenwood was also dark, therefore there was a power outage which would steal my opportunity to try Delia’s. Dangen!
Hungry with no idea when the power would return I headed back to East Atlanta Village only to find all businesses on Glenwood between Moreland and Flat Shoals also had no power. In the end I decided to eat a fairly quick meal at Holy Taco

Aw shucks, I thought that I was on a roll.
Del.icio.us Has A New Owner, My Horse Has Already Left That Barn
Yesterday I received an email from Yahoo! alerting me that they have sold Delicious (neé Del.icio.us) (it’s a bookmarking service for those who don’t know) after a few years of letting it flounder and then announcing a few months ago that they were going to shutter Delicuous’ doors.
After hearing of Delicious’ imminent demise I searched for similar (free) services to replace the functionality that I used daily (side note: when I come across websites that I find interesting I bookmark them with the tag “to_be_blogged” so that when I need to pull something out for a blog post I have a cache of websites from which to choose). The most common site that people suggested as a Delicious alternative is called Pinboard, whose buy-in price is reasonable and slowly growing (as of today it costs $9.31 USD to join). However, in the end I decided to roll my own by creating an Evernote notebook called “bookmarks” and tagging the entries in it.
And as Paul Harvey used to say… “And now you know the rest of the story.”
Tonight May Be A Play Night
While rummaging through some paperwork last weekend I realized that there is a play at the Horizon Theatre called “Legacy of Light” that I’ve yet to see. To make matters work the play’s run ends at the end of next week. Given my currently-packed schedule tonight will be the only night for me to see the play prior to its run’s end. I’ve made a reservation to use my ticket so I guess I’ll be seeing a play tonight.
Sadly due to a 9am physical therapy appointment this morning I will be unable to leave work early enough in order to devour a brisket sandwich at the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club before going to see the play.
