Rugers, STDs, and Public Transportation

How was my trip to Georgia, you ask?

It was pretty good.  Memorable, even.  I don't know if it was the Ruger flashed in the minivan or the STD comment made by the innocent boy-genius or the fall I took in the MARTA.  Whatever it was, a good time was had by all.

Notice that death-like grip?  There's a reason for that.
The "business" part of this business trip was nothing to write home (or on a blog) about.  Work is work.

In my usual (as of late) lazy blogger style, I'm going to bullet a few of the more interesting parts of the trip.
  • LAX is a people-watcher's dream come true.  Did you know that there are still women out there with permed mullets?  Poodle in the front, Lhasa Apso in the back
  • For some, 7:30 in the morning is not too early for a mixed drink :(
  • Pitch Perfect is maybe the worst movie I've sat through in 15 years.  Not counting kid's movies, of course...I have no choice but to sit through those
  • There IS such a thing as too much cheesecake
  • Public transportation in Atlanta is scary; don't let anyone convince you otherwise
  • You've got to try the public transportation in Atlanta at least once in your life
  • The World of Coca Cola attraction in Atlanta felt like a huge rip off
  • The CNN tour was fun, mostly because my expectations were low
  • No one was interested in eating a peach while in Georgia, nor were they interested in singing Alan Jackson on the bank of the Chattahoochee.  Heathens.
  • I learned that Twin Peaks and Tilt a Kilt are giving Hooters a run for their money
  • I had a star sighting at ATL airport
No really, I saw the REAL Terrence Howard.  I also saw this sign of him.  Both times, our eyes met.
  • Centennial Park looks a bit like a cemetery
Creepy, right?
  • Worst Coke drink EVER is Beverly from Italy
Trust me.  This stuff is nasty.
  • Buckhead has some nice buildings to photograph

I feel like this post could've been way more exciting, given the stories that have come from this trip.  Unfortunately, work is currently sucking every ounce of creativity out of me, which is odd, considering all I do is crunch numbers for a living.

Perhaps my next post will be more entertaining.

Epcot has Coca-Colas from around the world and I had the misfortune of trying Beverly. I asked three different staff members if there was some kind of accident and they all said no. Still not sure I believe them.
