Hello on a cold Friday morning.

Cold Night, Hot Minds
Last night I met up with ITP-Reader Stacy and Aron for trivia at Cameli’s Pizza in Little Five Points. With less-than-stellar service we ordered a pizza and waited for the trivia game to start.

To the best of my knowledge I’ve never been part of at team that scored a perfect game. I know that I’ve never been a part of a team that scored better than a perfect game; that’s what happened last night. Because Aron and Stacy knew to answer “American Red Cross”, and not just “Red Cross” for the question “What is the name of the organization started by Clara Barton?” we received two bonus points.

As is usually the case I was able to add my two cents to the answers to only a few of the questions, but I helped!

Walking up to my local post office the other day I saw this update to a local business. I like it! (fwiw- the building is not actually toppling over, it’s an optical illusion based on the fact that I had to angle my iPhone upward in order to get this shot.)

Trying To Get Into “The Spirit”, Part 1
“So you finally found a copy of In Cold Blood and you started reading another book instead?” asked Stacy to me last night. “Yes, because The Physics of Christmas: From the Aerodynamics of Reindeer to the Thermodynamics of Turkey is more timely” I replied.

I’ve actually have owned “The Physics of Christmas: From the Aerodynamics of Reindeer to the Thermodynamics of Turkey” for years and finally remembered to start reading it. I’m trying not to freak out that my lazy days of unemployment are starting to wind down and I need to start getting some shit accomplished.

Trying To Get Into “The Spirit”, Part 2
Tonight I am going to brave the cold and go to Atlantic Station, neither of which thrill me, to check out the German Christkindl Market set up there. Supposedly volunteers from Goethe Zentrum Atlanta will be working the market this weekend, so I’d also like to stop by to support them.

Tomorrow night I will be making my first trip to the newly-renovated Variety Playhouse. Tomorrow night’s show will be the annual Christmas Show put on by Atlanta’s The Whiskey Gentry.

If the weather permits and there is sufficient interest I am going to attempt my first day of street hockey on Sunday.

    “Less-than-stellar” is very kind….though, I reckon in her defense, she did try to redeem herself after I had to go get our own plates and silverware.

    “More-than-stellar” describes us last night though. BOOM! There’s just something so pleasing about hearing the other teams gasp and then moan when they hear just how far the first place team is ahead of them (*snicker*). It’s always really nice when the DJ remembers you too and says he’s missed ya.

    This weekend has a whole lotta NOTHIN’ on tap for me and the cold weather is playing perfectly into my plans there. Going to turn on the Christmas lights and watch a lot of movies. Thanks again for the suggestion of borrowing them from the library. Only thing better than movie day is FREE movie day.

    Oh, and Rudolph is on Saturday night. You know, that female reindeer with a parasitic nose. 😉

    that house is a business? what type of business?

    Congrats on the more than perfect score!!!!

    Boring evening for us – Allan had to study – the big test is Sunday morning.
    He is I’m sure blowing leaves today, working on the basement & studying.

    Not sure what is all on my agenda this weekend – Parrothead Chirstmas party Saturday night at The Wing, so since its so close, I may have to make an appearance. Probably some painting in the basement.
    Sunday if Allan’s test goes well & he’s in the correct mood – I’m hoping to go to Black Sheep. Start is out in Clarkston, for those that are wondering.

    The house is some sort of studio, like a photo studio I think.

    I am also considering Black Sheep, you know, since I have not done one since Hartwell.

    Nice job on the trivia. I’ve been wanting to play trivia (drink beer and eat pizza) but last night didn’t work out. Maybe next week?

    A quick ride last night, then off to a “surprise” birthday party at Nicoles’ favorite restaurant in Newnan. I learned her “A” horse is off and she and Debbie are taking him to the best close-by vet (just outside of Birmingham) this morning. The best horse vet, BTW, is in Lexington KY, and yes, we’ve made that trip, or at least Debbie has.

    It’s bar bingo night at this place, and we won the birthday girl a prize- we were playing her cards as well as our own.

    As I’ve said in this space earlier this week, Arches Brewing pop up artist market in Hapeville tomorrow. Noon to 8 if I recall correctly.

    Happy Friday!


  5. Barb says:

    how’s the beer at Arches? I doubt I will venture that far south, and I really don’t need to spend any money on art this month, but I’m curious.

  6. Steve says:

    No clue. The attraction was more about a friends pottery.

    So I look up the address- 3361 Dogwood Dr. and pull it up on the map. Dogwood Drive, HA! You can’t hide Stewart Ave from ME!!!

  7. Barb says:

    I thought Stewart Ave was Metropolitan Pkwy- its Dogwood Drive too?
    I know they have had at least 1 hash ending there already.

  8. Steve says:

    I think it’s Dogwood in the city of Hapeville.

    A rose, by any other name…

  9. I’m trying to recall whether I’ve had/tried beer from Arches. I want to say “Yes”, because I’ve consumed so much beer…

    My Thursdays through year’s end are booked, but I’d venture to say that Stacy and Aron may venture out and would like your assistance (not much is needed as I have proven). 🙂

    Speaking of beer, I am going to Christkindl earlier than originally planned so that I can meet up for beers tonight at Benchwarmers.

    I’m sure when others see you 3 walk to a trivia night they say “ah crap, I guess we are all fighting for second place now” 🙂 You should try out for Jeopardy.

    The Christkindl Market was neat, but very small. The people working the booths sound very German as well. The cheapskate (unemployed) person I am came out and I bought nothing.
