What’s this wet stuff falling from the sky this morning?
Off to PT again this morning. I’ve already filled my belly with a two-egg sandwich with cheese (homemade; in hindsight I probably should have used the “fresher” eggs I have in my refrigerator and I should have weighed myself prior to shoving food in my face).
I Have A Bad Syncing Feeling
No, not because of my eggs — though Captain Worrywart wouldn’t be surprised if something bad happened to him due to his reckless food eating abandon, though I did cook the eggs thoroughly and ate the sandwich while it was piping hot.
Instead I’m talking about data syncing.
For the past few months iTunes has been syncing haphazardly. Often times when I go to listen to a podcast on my iPod Touch it starts playing from some random point within the podcast. For some reason I thought that this was caused by the order in which I synced my devices with iTunes but alas I cannot detect a pattern which causes this anomaly.
For the past few days my Google Calendar data syncing, which I do currently with an application called Spanning Sync, has been failing with a rather unsatisfying error “Google Returned An Unknown Error.” Really. That’s less than helpful.
A Reason To Ride Marta (Once?)
The other day I was scrubbing through my RSS reader and stumbled across an article title called Light Up Atlanta. If you click through to look at the article you’ll see photos of statues which are currently installed inside MARTA stations. I’d bring my camera with me and take the train around town — if only MARTA wasn’t such a pain in the ass organization which forbids photography within its stations without nonsensical permits.
Here’s A Concert I Won’t Forget
A few weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to go to Eddie’s Attic to hear Ben Sollee perform. Of course I jumped on the opportunity to get free entry, and tonight is the night of the concert. Cool. I’ll be certain to give you a recap tomorrow — or come out to Eddie’s Attic tonight and see (hear) for yourself!
Here’s A Concert I’m Considering Not Forgetting
Yesterday I received and email from the band Gomez alerting me that they are coming back to the United States this Summer. Gomez will make their Atlanta stop on Friday, July 22nd, hey, that’s my birthday!
I’ve seen the band perform twice before in Atlanta — once at Variety Playhouse, once at Center Stage (which now explains why my friend Kim was in one of my dreams last night).Unfortunately (for me) they’ll be playing The Tabernacle this time around and because of this I’m keeping this show as “tentative.” I’m not sure that I want to spend #46 at The Tabernacle.
