Up with the alarm today, it’s Friday so it’s important to get to work early so I can leave early as well. Dark intermittent clouds most of the day, sun came out a few times but nothing spectacular.

Ate lunch a bit early and was out in the bush about 11:30. Found a few more “new” mushrooms, I think. some small red/orange ones (sticky-wet), some 1″ to 1.5″ ones flat and grey/blue, some yellow/white in a bunch with *MORE*. Crawling through the bushes and then almost laying on the ground to take photos I felt like things were crawling all over my body when I got back inside. Not to mention I was sweaty and got bit by a large black ant on the ball of my left hand that stung for quite some time.

Rained about 1:30pm or so, just a nice summer rain, no lightning that I could tell. Soaked everything really well, at least by work it did.

Looking into CVS (Concurrent Versions System) for home to allow me to keep my website and other code under source control. It would really help me in the long run, especially when I make changes and blow things up. There are also GUI adaptations for Mac and Windows.

Fernando and I were going to hit the NEW Tin Lizzy location over in Dunwoody but they are not going to be open until sometime in July now.

Changed my elections for my 401K, I really have no idea what I’m doing, just trying to get things in some sort of average, I was into lots of risky funds when the shit hit the fan, I lost a bunch from what I can tell, not really worrying about it and forging ahead.

Had some dinner and a beer over at the Tilted Kilt off of Old Peachtree, saw AnnaK as she was leaving and got to meet a couple of the girls there, Amanda (pronouced like Armada without the ‘r’) a cute black gal with Tina Turner 80’s hair. Then another gal who I forget her name with some WONDEROUS tattoos, want to have a photo shoot with her.

Came home after and Nicki was at the house, getting mad since Jorael was working late again but she acted like she thinks it is something else and not work. She left about 9pm and I did as well to head off to the Taco Mac for a few beers, had a few and saw the gals, Julie and Cindy and chatted with them, the cute couple, Christine and Dale?

Home and to bed.

Bit warmer this morning as well. Sun peeked out in the afternoon and the wind picked up as well.

Got up a bit slower than normal since I had the third beer and I had also gotten to bed past 11pm.

Messed with LinkedIN for a bit, updating some connections from the old days of NCR.

PhotoSmith is in it’s final stages, only about a month behind schedule, a bit more actually. I’ve been looking forward to this release for about 6 months so the extra month seems to have made this DRAGGGGGGGGG on. I predict that they may have it out by the beginning of May maybe closer to the mid-May timeframe. I will hope for that and therefore if it comes out earlier I’ll be ecstatic.

Went out for a small walk on the Big Creek Greenway about 12:30pm it was mostly overcast still but the sun popped out a few times and I even broke a sweat. A few bugs were out, the same ladybug that was on the bridge yesterday and then a few dragonflies and damselflies. The wind began to pick up a bit after I got back into the office.

Off to the BOTM @ Taco Mac after work. I usually go to the Johns Creek store and today was no different. They are premiering the newest Terrapin beer, the Easy Rider which is a Pale Ale brewed to be a bit lower gravity, ie. about 4.5 ABV. I first stopped in at Pop’s and picked up a couple of Great Divide beers, the 18th Anniversary IPA and a Oak Aged Yeti Stout. The dude, John who had his hip replaced a while back was there again and we talked quite a bit. No one else of interest was there. Had the 2011 Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla before the Easy Rider. Then I drove down to the Tilted Kilt on the way home and had a Drafty Kilt, TiffanyG and Jizzille were there along with Andy what’s his name with the ponytail. I remember now, his last name is pronounced “ki-yay” as in yippie ki-yay (motherfucker!).

Got up a bit earlier today, cold outside, almost under 40 I think. It’s cold downstairs since I put on the AC instead of the Heat last week. Turned on the heat and watched the end of Skyline that I had started last night but just couldn’t finish.

Nicki got up and then went out to go to the store.

I then played upstairs with photos for awhile and Brian came up asking about maybe going to lunch somewhere, suggested the Kilted Kilt that just opened up by the Mall.

Had some lunch there but TOTALLY forgot about the 12:30 before you can buy a beer rule. Stupid Georgia and the liquor laws here. Cute Kilt Girl, light auburn hair and some really nice freckles on her midriff. Brian was his regular somewhat fault finding self. Let the owner/manager know that some of the girls don’t look good in the outfit, mmmmm. OK, thanks. I love him but sometimes he makes me want to crawl under something and disappear. It was fine that he say it to me but….

We then stopped in at the T-Mac for a beer since the Kilt was out of Guinness, what? an Irish bar out of Guinness? Just not right! I had the Victory Heartland Pale Ale and he the Ommegang Chocolate Indulgance, I only have 11 more credits to get my Dean and the stein. Maybe I’ll drink the Schlitz Gusto for the 750th beer.

Stayed home the rest of the day, just messed with some StopShot photos with a glass of water and some dice. I also messed on the Interwebs and waited for a text I didn’t get. I figured that Bill&Suzy didn’t really want me over but I was being polite and would rather get to know them better. I’m really not into the third wheel stuff as much as I seem to get into it. It would have been cool watching them do the beer brewing, it would have been cool.
