Greetings from the City Formerly Known as Hotlanta. The past few days have been rainy and muggy. Blah. Today seems much nicer though. And, my afternoon class was cancelled, so I have some time to update Ye Olde BloggyThing ... and possibly catchup on some Sligo Co-op business. Or go for a run. I ran 4.67 miles on Tuesday. And, here's an interesting factoid: Atlanta? It is not flat. It is HILLY! Gah.
Anyway, I arrived on Sunday afternoon. D was nice enough to offer to drive me to the airport. Hurrah. I took the train from the airport to the hotel. Easy Peasy! and only $2.50. Bargain. I checked in. Unpacked. Took a nap. And, then, searched for a place to eat. I ended up at Mellow Mushroom, only a few blocks away.
My days have been mostly the same. Class. Break. Class. Lunch. Class. Break. Class. Dinner. Blob in my room watching cable.
Dinner last night was special though. I met up with my friend, Patty, who I used to work with in Japan. She is totally awesome. And we had a great time catching up. Our first stop was this local donut shop, Sublime Donuts. I bought an assorted dozen to take to class this morning. They were tasty (see picture above). Then, we went to Cafe Sunflower, a vegetarian (possibly vegan) restaurant. The food was delicious. I had some sort of polenta dish.
And here is a photo of Patty and Me:
Aren't we cute?
Once I got back to the hotel, a handsome young man contacted me via the Grindr, so I invited him over. I had told myself I wasn't going to entertain guests this trip, but -OMG- this guy is soooooo totally my type: tall (6'4"), big (225 lbs?) but not fat (y'know, sort of football-player-y thick), 35 years old, shaved head, beard, dark skin, beautiful eyes, great kisser ... *sigh* ... We had a lot of fun. And, I am hoping for a repeat performance tonight. We shall see ...
And, that's about all the news that's fit to print. There are a few other Atlanta pics on my flickr.
Have a great day!*smooches*
