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!

“These Are The People In My Neighborhood” (Atlanta, Georgia, United States)
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.
If the weather permits and there is sufficient interest I am going to attempt my first day of street hockey on Sunday.
