Throw Away Sunday Post

First, we'll go back to last night, Fermi was right, Georgia Tech moved up in the rankings, just beating Wake Forest in overtime. Rick, I'd go hide somewhere when your team plays Tech.

Second, still last night, Tina Turner is still hoofing it. I saw her in a 2009 concert on some cable channel. She's a bit thicker (actually quite a bit) and a bit (more than a bit) less supple; but, she still belts out the tunes.

Today was a superb, gorgeous day here in the South. Something like 75 and blue, blue sky. Can't putt. Can't putt. Cut putt.

Falcons aren't great, they put away a really bad Redskins team. DeAngelo Hall, a former Falcon, former Raider and now Redskin is a hugely overpaid, twenty-something adolescent.

I'm listening to This American Life on WABE here in Atlanta, a station that seems to be moving more to my liking. Less and less Muzak like classical music and more news and features.

I'm going to watch a Netflix movie tonight that rates well for me, almost a 4 (that's big in what Netflix rates for me), A Straight Story - a brother travels 300 miles on a lawnmower to get to his sick brother.

Next weekend I'm in New Orleans, I hope, not giving money to Harrah's. I'm scoping out restaurants in the Quarter and Central Business District. And, there's a slow moving hurricane that's projected to hit mid-week. Isn't mid-November a bit late for that sort of thing?

I don't think Slippery Rock plays Tech this year.

SR ought to schedule ya'll, it'd be close.

I refuse to feel bad about moving up after winning ugly, because LSU moved up after LOSING.

I like a lot of the stuff on WABE. I have been downloading the podcasts of This American Life and listening to them on the train (on my days when I have to go to the gritty downtown location). We usually catch Car Talk and Wait, Wait... while we are goofing off on Saturday mornings. I also download the Terri Gross interviews and save them for the train as well.

Can't complain about the weather either day this weekend. Perfect for tailgating and game watching yesterday, and we spent several hours today working in the yard.

How'd you like The Straight Story? It's surprising that it was directed by David Lynch and had absolutely no creepiness to it whatsoever.

I saw it years ago but remember that I quite enjoyed it. Was engaged and charmed by it.

As for the rest - we had gorgeous weather in PA as well. Not that warm, but almost.

It was pretty good Pos, a little slow in parts - there's a limit to the beauty of corn field after corn field from the view point of a lawn tractor.

I don't mind slow sometimes, if it's the right kind of slow.

Once in a great while I envy you batchelors...have a great time in NO.

Dave said...

LF, it's a great city to go to with people too which is what I usually do. No one was free this weekend.

You and the Good Would enjoy a getaway sometime this winter, NOLA is a great place to do it.

Dr Jenn said...

I would go see Tina Turner in concert.

Bill said...

The Straight Story was great. Also, the most normal movie David Lynch ever made.
