I screwed the pooch and other things

Well....I'm here in Atlanta and wondering what the heck I could do when I am not working. Go to a movie...nah. How about Coca Cola World....maybe.....Hard Rock Cafe ~ "seen it!".....CNN.....liberal ba$terds, NOT GONNA DO IT!......hmmmm, what else can I do.....GO TO THE RACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, this is the second trip I have taken and not brought my camera along. The first time was a test to see if I could "be away from it" for more than an hour. This trip was to confirm that the dang thing isn't a ball and chain. Kind of like AA for photographers. COLD TURKEY.

I screwed that up. This weekend is a NASCAR race in ATLANTA. What the hell was I thinking? Me.....a NASCAR fan (not that you can tell from my screw up!) and I totally dropped the ball that they are racing here this weekend.


I leave Friday.....unless I have some problems at work and have to stay another night......insert evil laugh here.......

Still, I will (probably_) never leave my camera home again. Repeat "one billion times..."

On another more somber note (I love to kill the joy).
