After eating quantities of delicious pork and sides yesterday for lunch and then seeing that traffic sucked on a gorgeous afternoon (BEWARE: pollen has started to appear!) I decided to go for a walk yesterday. The boss did the same and he and I hoofed it around the Perimeter Mall area for six miles. We were far from the only ones with that plan, though I doubt that they had eaten such a bountiful lunch, because the sidewalks of Sandy Springs / Dunwoody were littered with people.
The Joke Was On Me!
I swear that when I left the house yesterday that I was wearing a black t-shirt, as one as cool as I does. However, when I was sitting in the break room of work I noticed that instead I had put on a navy blue t-shirt instead. And I was wearing a black belt.
Oh the humanity!
Good thing that I am currently too thick to tuck my shirt in, so I was able to conceal the presence of a black belt by keeping my navy blue t-shirt untucked.
And that’s how I managed to survive April Fool’s Day.
Speaking of which, of the increasingly annoying April Fool’s “pranks” I saw on Twitter yesterday the one that kept me chuckling the most was the “Fanny Basket” introduced by Target. If you didn’t see it, it was essentially a shopping basket that you would strap around your waste like a Fanny Pack.
Fooled By Alec Baldwin
Though he played a pivotal role in my favorite movie of all time, Glengarry Glen Ross, I haven’t followed much of Alec Baldwin’s career since. Sure, I also heard about his temper and the recording of him yelling at his daughter that was all the rage on the internet some years ago, but that’s about it.
Last year, after hearing many accolades for it I decided to subscribe to Baldwin’s podcast Here’s The Thing. I’m really liking it I find Baldwin to be an informed and captivating interviewer. And while most of the episodes consist of interviews with celebrities, he occasionally branches out to cover issues as well. Today I’ll officially join the bandwagon of those suggesting that you check it out.
As an added bonus I just saw an article about Baldwin showing up at a college history class dressed as Abraham Lincoln yesterday.
No Trivia Tonight
I know you thinking “Thursday again? Man I wish I could join Paulie, ITP-Reader Stacy, and Aron for some trivia tonight!”. Cool your jets, friend, we’re taking a week off.
The timing of Stacy’s employee
hazing training tonight at , that’s right, she’s about to get more than just tip money from the brewery now that she’s working there part-time, couldn’t have been better for me. For I am headed to the Hertz Stage at the Alliance Theatre for their performance of “Edward Foote” tonight. Fancy me!
