Tiny Table Blog

Waking up is hard to do (for me these days). Once again my bed won the battle and I got out of it far later than I had hoped. For this reason I am no sitting at a tiny table in Joe’s Coffee Shop in East Atlanta Village as I wait out Atlanta traffic. This morning I am drinking a huge cup of coffee and eating a bagel from the soon-to-be-East-Atlanta-based Emerald City Bagels. I have also done my good deed for the morning by realizing the customer ahead of me left his credit card behind and alerting him to this mistake.

O, M, F, And G
I think last night might be as good as it gets in my life. No, I did not meet a woman.

I started my evening by finding a convenient, free, parking space in Decatur. A short walk later I found myself in Twain’s where much to my surprise I did not drink a beer even when I was told that all pints were $1 off last night. I then ate a vegetarian dinner. WHAT!?!?! At least it wasn’t a “healthy” vegetarian meal, it was a fried green sandwich with fries and an extra side of Twain’s “cole slaw”, which is more like a pickled slaw of vegetables.

With time to spare and no beer drinking on which to lean I walked around Decatur for about twenty minutes. EXERCISE!?!?! I then headed to Eddie’s Attic, where upon arrival the door was opened for me by Ben Sollee, the man who I was there to hear perform.

Since I was a late arriver I sat in the “bleachers”. Sollee and the “Kentucky Natives”, a band consisting of a cello (Sollee), banjo, fiddle, bass, and stripped-down drum, who despite the name are not all from Kentucky. This ensemble of incredibly-talented musicians put on a show that was over two hours in length, and was superb. Not even the breaking of the stand-up bass, when its bridge inexplicably came off, could stop these five men from putting on a great show.

I was home by 10:45pm and asleep soon thereafter.

It Had Baffled The Smartest Of Professionals
Apparently the way to stop Tom Brady is to have me draft him for my fantasy football league team.

Equifax has been hacked. It is very possible that some of your personal data has now been acquired by people who will use it for their financial gain. Equifax did not deny that my data was acquired, which means that it proabably was. You may want to keep an eye out for fraud.

Good luck this weekend, and if you are in the deep southeast keep an eye on Irma’s path.

    Blah, blah, blah…charge your batteries, crank your generator.

    Pro tip: Metered parking is free in Decatur after 6:00pm and on Sunday.

    BTW: wishing misfortune on *anybody* in Florida (including Trump) is juvenile, a low blow and bad Karma.

    Lastly, I’ve spent the last couple of days dialing in my new “Creality CR-10″ 3D printer (Amazon, $500, 2 day delivery. I used some 2-year-old Amazon gift cards I had forgotten about). A full 12″x12″x18” print area. Weeeee!

  2. Jesus Christ, WP emails still going to junk mail. Fuck it all, I don’t care any longer. Just like driving anywhere in midtown these days – “Expect Delays”.

      what is a WP email?

      • WP = WordPress, which is the platform I use to publish this blog. Until this week comment emails were going to my inbox and now they are getting moved to junk, which I don’t check often, immediately.

          Christ, you are fucking stubborn. It takes about 2 seconds to create a filter to tell Gmail to never send the WordPress messages to spam. Problem solved. It’s as if you like being miserable.

          • Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

            I have been to GMail twice and tried to figure out how to create the filter and failed; not stubborn, incapable.

    My 20+ year old (hand-me-down) Honda generator cranked on the….wait for it….second pull. Last cranked in February 2015.

    Boo yah.

    I’ll be dropping by later today to get my “man card” updated. 🙂

    No excuse. Just remember Paulie, what goes around, comes around. Mar-a-Largo employees a bunch of (innocent) folks. Trump probably hopes it sustains damage, so he can sue somebody.
