Whew, I got into the office today and have been busy trying to catch up from a week’s worth of time away. I already miss the Bohemian lifestyle I crafted last week.
About Last Christmas
On Christmas Eve I ate a delicious, yet wildly expensive dinner at Gunshow. The Christmas Eve 2014 price fixe dinner was so much better though.
Christmas Day found me at a friend’s house for an early dinner. Dave is a friend of a friend and invited some orphans over for a turkey dinner. It was lovely, though I managed to consume too much beer — imagine that.
Look Who’s Been Redecorating!
I moved my futon to my den, the den office furniture to the room formerly known as the “guest bedroom”, and set up the IKEA media center in the den. Funny thing about that media center, it contains no holes in the back for passing cables. Still need to rectify this.
Look Who’s Been (Indoor) Riding!
I put an hour a day in on the trainer five of the last seven days. On four of those days I watched Sahara with Michael Palin, a series I’ve wanted to watch, apparently for the second time as it turns out as I recognized all of the content in the final episode.
Look Who’s Been Reading!
I wrapped up To Kill a Mockingbird, and read the entirety of Spoon Fed: How Eight Cooks Saved My Life — a book about eight female chefs that helped Kim Severson improve her life.
Look Who’s Been To Cartersville?
Me? Cartersville? Yes, Inside The Perimeter went to Cartersville yesterday.
The purpose of my trek to Cartersville was to visit Booth Western Art Museum. The museum is currently holding an exhibition of photography including some of the greats. It’s billed as “Ansel Adams: Before & After” and includes photos from Albert Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Dorothea Lange, and Edward Weston amongst others.
Of course I also wandered around the amazing collection of Western art owned by the museum.
Booth Western Art Museum a fantastic museum. I only wish that it were closer so that I could visit more often.
Look Who’s Going To Düsseldorf!
I have registered for German Nash Hash which will be held in Düsseldorf Germany on June 17-19. I’ve yet to pay, but plan to do so this week. Initially I was going to have to fork over the 209€ using another wire transfer, but then I found out that I can use PayPal. Unfortunately, after requesting a payment request from the hash cash he accidentally sent me 209€, so now I need to figure out how to undo this. If it weren’t a hasher making this error I’d swear that this were a scam to swindle me out of money.
Now I need to figure out how to get there economically.
And also how to ensure that I can take enough vacation in 2016 in order to go on all of my now-planned trips.
