I’m Becoming A Bore

And while I am getting as fat as a boar at least I’m not one of those.

I have nothing to say today. Things are getting better, slowly, but at least they are headed in the right direction.

Happy end of August (!). Changes (hopefully for the better) arrive tomorrow.

Until then,
Paulie [eatl/ga]

    Hmmm. Let’s make up something to say then. Like, what are the plans for the weekend? Anything fun?

    Yeah, I realize it’s only Thursday but it seriously feels like weekend mode already downtown. I think it’s all the DragonCon folks already milling about. 🙂

  2. Here are a few topics for discussion:

    Good: DragonCon weekend. I may go out to the parade and shoot a bit.

    Bad: I think that my eyesight is getting worse. Shocking, I know, since I am “only” 52.

    Good: For me it’s payday. Yay! Money!

    Bad: I’m scared to try exercising again.

    Good & Bad: I ate a sub-standard breakfast this morning trying to use up the two biscuits that were becoming stale, and a couple of old eggs.

    Good: As of tomorrow Georgia breweries can finally act like bars and sell their own beer.

    Good: Weather for this weekend in Atlanta looks amazing.

    Good: I will push the hipster lawnmower around the yard this weekend.

    Good: Tonight I will be going to the Museum of Design Atlanta (http://www.museumofdesign.org/) for a lecture by Brian Collins.

    Good & Bad: I’m super busy related to work, not necessarily all “XYZ Corp”.

      Whoa, this is an impressive milestone. Way more good than bad. Thumbs up! The good is always out there, the bad is just always trying to steal its fire.

      Good for me: Falcons tickets for tonight fell into my lap yesterday.
      Bad for me: Apparently I’ll be so close to the field the players on the sideline will be blocking my view. Woe is me. 😉

      I’m such a sports snob/cheapskate that this will be my first NFL game ever. The one Hawks game I’ve seen was from a suite. I take the long view and wait for the right tickets to find me. They do eventually. I’ve attended many Braves games, due to exponentially more loose tickets flying around over the years.

    I’m bringing Travis down to the Dragon Con parade, hope to see you down there!

    Since I can see Jekyll Brewing from my desk I am really happy about SB85, I will be stopping in for a pint tomorrow afternoon.

    Got a busy weekend coming up with parties, parades, and bike rides. I hope the predicted nice weather stays that way.

    At the moment, no plans for the weekend. Debbie is supposed to leave today for an overnight to Tryon, NC and the American Eventing Champoinships (like Rolex, only a little smaller). Phinney is having a reaction to a shot he got the other day- if he’s not better this morning, she will stay home.

    I might have to wander Peachtree Center for lunch today and look at the DragonCon folks.

    I’ve never been to an NFL game. No interest. None.

    • I was a Buccaneers season ticket buyer in the mid-1980s and Falcons season ticket buyer in the late-1990s / early-2000s. The NFL thinks more of their product than I do. I won’t shed a tear if I never see another NFL game in person.

      • Steve says:

        I read an interesting article about the Dayton minor league baseball team yesterday. 17 or 18 years of sellouts. 6k seat field, not much additional advertising, owners at every game and work the exits after the games thanking folks for coming out. Sounds very cool.

      • ITP Lurker says:

        I’m only going because:

        1) Amazing seats
        2) Rock star event parking
        3) New stadium
        4) No cost to me other than beer.

        This is why it’s taken me to this point in my life to get to an NFL game. I normally could care less. I much prefer to exercise myself than watch others do so.

    • Barb says:

      My eyes aren’t good enough anymore for live sporting events – I tend to watch the BIG TV screens more than the actual game, so why go?
      BUT – free tickets – I’ll go every time.
      ITP-LURKER……… have a blast, I’d love to have those tickets, I might actually watch the players from there. and- I know I’d watch the sidelines shenanigans, that would be quite entertaining up close.

      • Stacy says:

        Free tickets are the only way I’ll go now too. It’s just much more comfortable and convenient to watch from home. Or a bar. It’s fun to be out with others now and again and that’s much more affordable to boot.

        • ITP Lurker says:

          Thanks, Barb. There’s definitely a spectacle aspect to events like this when the seats are right that makes it worth the effort. I’m always up for adding one more “been there, done that” item to my list.

        • Barb says:

          we met some of the oxygen guys at a tailgate once, I had no idea how much the players suck up oxygen on the sidelines during the game. I told Allan he should look into that part time gig.

  5. Barb says:

    Doubtful we will go downtown for Dragon-con, even the parade, I’m just not that into huge crowds anymore.
    Weekend is slowly filling up – hopefully the weather will cooperate – right now, it isn’t.
    (But, all this rain will be good for the Cartacay to be flowing on Monday if we go tubing)

    Paulie- did you ever get the InterAm transfer finalized?
    I saw a post by someone else (not talking about you) that they had paid someone & the person never finished the transfer. I wonder how many more will mess up their transfers – the FB page has been interesting. MisManagement is already regretting bidding on this shindig.

  6. Grrr, I am peeved to find out that tonight’s event is not being held at MoDA, where I can walk even if it is raining, but rather at Synchonicity Theater, further up Peachtree. If the weather were nice I could walk, I walked passed it that day I hoofed it up to El Azteca for lunch, but not tonight. Of course now I will have to also pay $5 to park. This is the first I heard that the event was not going to be held at the museum; I purchased the ticked over six weeks ago so there was plenty of time to inform me about the location before the day-of.

    There is now a greater-than 0% chance that I will say “fuck it”, and in the process MoDA will lose me as a potential member.

    • Captain Cranky-Pants has been notified that the location has always been listed on their website, and that he is clearly in error.

      At least I (think that I) know the location of the event at the end of October, as that is supposed to take place at the Rich Autotorium inside Woodruff Arts, assuming that the construction taking place there doesn’t force a rescheduling…
