Today I received an email “alerting” me that someone in China had registered a Chinese top-level domain for InsideThePerimeter.com. Further, I was instructed that if I wanted to “protect my brand” that I should contact the address provided. SPAM much? Hey, if you can make ten times what I’ve made from InsideThePerimeter.com since I started blogging then more power to you! (btw, 10 x $0.00 = $0.00)
Lavanderia And Dinner Night, Done Slightly Differently
Last night I did my laundry at what has become my “regular” lavanderia — the one near the corner of Buford Hwy and Chamblee Tucker Road (next to Las Tortas Locas). Feeling fatter-than-I-want-to-be I was going to try and abstain from eating dinner. However, by the time that my laundry was done I had hunger.
I was really in the mood for a Banh Mi sandwich, and though the ones at Dac Biet are good, I prefer those at Lee’s Bakery. So I did what any sane individual would do, I loaded my laundry into my car and pulled into the shopping center containing Lee’s. Even though Yelp said that Lee’s was closed, it was indeed open and I ate a fantastic Banh Mi sandwich.
Speaking of restaurant closures, does anyone know if Havana Grill (one of the two “Havana” restaurants that emerged after the burning of the original Havana Sandwich Shop) on Buford Hwy has closed?
Sadly I didn’t get around to shooting photos last night. I need to elevate my shooting. My competitive juices are flowing because my friends are taking far superior shots…
A Stopped Watch Is Right Twice A Day, But Rarely When You Look At It
The watch I wore for about eighteen months had its battery die back during the ice/snow in January (I believe I blogged about it then). Since then I tried to replace the battery myself but didn’t get the right tool, and have thrown it into the Jackmobile’s glove box so that I can take it to get fixed.
A watched pot never boils and an unseen watch never gets fixed.
Today I put the broken watch on my wrist (in an attempt to remind myself to get it fixed) and out of habit have already “checked the time” twice since then. In case you are wondering, it was 3:45 each time I checked. 😉
WordPress 3.2 Is Fucking With My Head
Last night I updated to WordPress 3.2. Many, is this update fucking with my head. First, they’ve changed the default font for everything. This alone is enough to drive my sense of change insane. I just noticed that they’ve removed the “New Post” button that I used every day in order to write this blog.
I’m sure that this release is “better” than those which preceded it, but it’s going to take me some time to get used to. (see also: why an impromptu furniture rearrangement causes me to appear as if I don’t like it.)
Hmmm, I wonder if the backup plugin will work with this release. I sure hope so…
