Taking a random trip to Athens today. Oh wait, no I’m not…

Today is going to be super busy. Will toil at “XYZ Corp” until about 5pm, and then head to drink with the Germans at Wild Heaven tonight.

  1. Google has updated the look of the Chrome browser and I’m not sure that I like it.

      I noticed that yesterday. I’m not sure I do either. But then I could just be old and crotchety and resistant to change. 🙂

    This quote from Twitter aligns with my experience:

    @DennisTirchPhD: “Tempting as it may be to try to criticize and berate your way into healthier habits, that just isn’t how change happens. Self-compassion works better.”

    And yes, I feel like there’s teams of software developers out there reimagining user interfaces just as a matter of job security. If it isn’t broken, don’t damn fix it.

    I did a little exploring on my CX bike last night. Sadly, I kept turning off the GPS, which I really wanted to follow. Apparently there are trails that need work and I was unsuccessfully looking for them. I did manage to stay upright (mostly) on some rutted and rocky trails, but had to stop at least twice to remove the spiders riding on the handlebars.

    Tomorrow, I’ll be out at the Yellow Daisy Festival promoting that little highland games coming up in 6 weeks. This is a great opportunity to advertise to folks who are most likely to show up- locals. We do such a poor job of publicity, it amazes me we lasted for as long as we have.

    Ha ha, Paulie! Fun day in Athens, great town. I definitely want to go back. This trip was a “see the touristy sites” trip. Thanks again guys for the recs 🙂.

    R.E.M. pilgrimage:
    -“Murmur” trestle
    -Steeple
    -Weaver D’s “Automatic For The People” (they weren’t serving lunch for some reason, but everything probably has bacon drippings in it anyway…)
    -Wuxtry Records
    -Georgia Theatre
    Walked a tiny bit on the greenway (yes it’s nice)
    40 Watt Club
    UGA campus (sorry Paulie)
    Oconee Hill Cemetery (unfortunately just a short visit, definitely want to go back and dig in more) (hehe)
    Creature Comforts
    Farmers Market – bought some pretty chocolate bell peppers
    Jittery Joes – bought coffee to take home
    Went into Trappeze Bar and took some photos but didn’t drink (cool bar area and taps)
    Lunch: The Grit (vegetarian restaurant, yum!)
    Dinner: Clocked (yum!)
