Friday Five

Alpharetta, GA this week. It's a suburb north of Atlanta. Managed to find a Famous Dave's, which is always good.

I did manage to find 5 Seasons Brewing, which is a local brewpub that gets its food from local farms. The place was so good I went twice this week. The second time they had a special - lamb burger with arugula and goat cheese on focaccia bread. For those who don't know, I love both lamb and goat cheese. The burger was easily one of the top 10 things I've ever put in my mouth.

In the past I had a hard time remembering what town I was in. Now I'm finding the most difficult thing is remembering which rental car I have in a given week. It's one thing to walk out into a parking lot not remembering where you parked. It's something completely different not remembering what you parked.

So after doing so many Friday Five's you start to run out of ideas. If you have an idea you'd like to see me (and/or Karin) do on a given week, feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment.

In the mean time, Sarah has suggested 5 ways to unwind/decompress. So here we go...

  1. Three words: Chair. Beer. Remote. Easily my favorite combination. Get home, grab a beer, plop down on my chair, and watch TiVo - usually Simpsons or Pardon The Interruption.
  2. Relaxing with Karin. It's something we don't do nearly enough because of my travels, but curling up on the couch and watching something (House, a movie, etc.) is always very nice.
  3. Video games: Either on the Xbox or computer, it's a nice way to disconnect from the real world.
  4. Going out and blowing off steam: I'm an extrovert most of the time, and getting together with friends for dinner or over drinks is a nice way to forget about life for a while.
  5. Reading a computer book. As geeky as it sounds, I really like this stuff.

Hey anonymous - give me a name and I'd be happy to start using those.

But being anonymous is so much fun!!!!!!!!!

Well - it's your call. They are great suggestions, and as soon as I get a name I'll start using them.

oh, fine... play hard to get....

I love being anon...

you remember me... as a bob.

I do remember you as a bob. And nobody else here will get that. So you'll still be anonymous to everyone else.

The 5 things smaller than my fist is the one that intrigues me the most and I plan on going with that this Friday.

Thanks for the ideas.
