Weather, Wishes and the Weekend


It's RAINING!!! YAY!!! Holy CRAP do we need the rain in Georgia! Depending on who you believe the city of Atlanta may have a less than 90 supply of water. It's a little weird to think about. They've already banned outdoor watering and waiters bringing glasses of water to your table... hopefully this weather will last a while. It's not a drought butster but it's nice to see rain again for sure!

Could this wet weather be some sort of meteorlogical omen to alert Georgians of a certain Seattle blogger's 40th birthday?


Happy B-Day Matt!


Over the weekend "P" and I were very community service oriented.

Saturday morning we helped out at the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Here's me in the Product Rescue Center warehouse being VERY GRUMPY about agreeing to volunteer:


Of course, just like with any good deed, I felt great once we were done.

Later on Saturday we saw "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" which was not as bad as I thought it would be. Clive Owen is hot. That's pretty much what I got out of it.

Sunday we were back in charitable mode. We walked with my company in Aids Walk Atlanta.



Always an interesting crowd at the Aids Walk. BEAUTIFUL weather for the event.

Then Sunday night we saw SLEUTH at the Tony Award Winning Alliance Theater. I was confused. I'm just gonna leave it there... no review.

How was your weekend?

You guys are in a drought??? It's beautiful and moist up here (it was humid as hell last week). And today, it's mid-70s and none of the trees started changing colors yet. I mean, it's IS fall, isn't it?

And no, there's no such thing as Global Warming.

America's peculiar love affair with lawns (which began at the Rockefeller estate in Tarrytown after John D. saw Buckingham Palace) will have to end some day. Some day soon. A dreadful waste and environmentally stressful extravagence.

Good on you G for volunteering. I make time for it too.

Good on you for volunteering. No matter how grumpy it can make you at first, I've never regretted any volunteer work at all.

And awww ... you crack me up with that picture. Thanks for the birthday wishes, buddy.

just for the record I wasn't trying to be all, "HEY I VOLUNTEERED!"

re reading it though I did come off a little holier than thou... and trust me, I am not!
