georgia state of mind

January 21, 2010

It was only a matter of time.. Georgia parody on Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind. Makes me want some Waffle House and Coke.

2 Fingers in the air for the A-Town
Got my seersuckers, Sperry’s and a buttondown.

grand. opening.

August 20, 2008

Just in time — Nike will be opening a Nike Sportswear Flagship store in SoHo this Friday. Hmm, any guesses whether I’ll be packing for Boston or checking out some new diggs?

Nike Sportswear announced the opening of 21 Mercer Street in New York City’s SoHo. It is the first Nike Sportswear-specific store of its kind. Opening August 22nd, the stand-alone shop will be the only location globally to carry the complete NSW collection and seasonal 21 Mercer products.

another day. another dollar.

June 22, 2008

Who knew I’ve actually been working for five weeks now? Certainly not my bank account. HA!

Let’s recap the latest week in the big city..

Today I was pleasantly surprised by a mysterious looking package from The Brit with enough packing tape to make you want to buy stock in 3M products. And after a 5 min struggle with scissors and cursing (you know how I wasn’t allowed to have scissors at my desk in the newsroom..) lo and behold, my very own TexMex bobblehead! Now I only need a second baseman and a left fielder (Chipper’s goes to 3rd), and I’ll have a whole lineup. And look, Tex has already made friends with my Dwight Schrute bobble:

bobbles

Despite not having a paycheck (yet), I had to venture to my beloved Ralph Lauren Rugby. In between polos and manicures, I found quite possibly the greatest. thing. ever. at Virgin Megastore..

gizmos!

GIZMOS! Me want! I think the only thing that could possibly make this better is to throw in a bunch of Ewoks.

Randomly decided to enter a 5miler race around Central Park today, and placed 5th — with the 4th place finisher ONE SECOND in front. How irritating. Esp since I had to stop to adjust my knee brace.

QOTD (via Twitter):
Curt: @dpnation Clean your teeth the tasty way with Bacon Floss: http://www.mcphee.com/items/11847.html
dpnation: @curt
omg not the first person to recommend bacon floss to yours truly. what does this say about me?
Curt: Only that your love of bacon transcends that of mere mortals 🙂
dpnation: @curt
i hope they put that on my tombstone.
Ken: @dpnation @curt
That your tombstone would reference ‘mere mortals’ is delightfully ironic.

Mr. A, earlier: I don’t know why whenever I see “bacon!” it reminds me of you…LOL.  But I also can’t argue with this [bacon floss] logic. Is there anything bacon can’t improve?

Skybversations, con’t:

djprep thank you very much

Guess who leaves for Paris in a week from Wednesday? Hope those Frenchies enjoy my Spanglish and pathetic Italian.


hoops. heaven.

Visiting the Nike House of Hoops in Harlem..

LeBron wall

Kicks of pro players (in their actual sizes – smallest was a 12 in Steve Nash)

As for the rest of life in The City..

The office.. next to Radio City and waayy to close to all the 5th Ave shopping.

Unfortunately, I missed this in the ATL:

The Brit collects her Mark Teixiera bobblehead. All I gotta say, is thank god for eBay. I too will have my TexMex bobble.

What else..
Kissena, the team that at some point I’ll be riding with this summer. (Yay for UVA colors). Who knew that it would take over a month for the bruises from getting run over by bikes (twice) to go away?

Speaking of which, what do a Tour de France Champion (Alberto Contador) and I have in common? Turns out, we both like to fracture our elbows!
“The 2007 Tour de France winner crashed during Saturday’s eighth stage to Tivoli. He finished in the bunch on both Saturday and Sunday but an x-ray carried during Monday’s rest day revealed a small fissure fracture at the head of the radius bone of his left forearm.”

Neverfear, living in New York will not deprive me of my favorite clothing store ever: there’s a Ralph Lauren Rugby store in the Village.

The subway is a place of marvel for a small town southerner. The things I’ve seen in one week.. most notably, the guys who were breakdancing in a relatively full train, doing flips on the pole/handrails and a two-person somersault down the aisle. It was absolutely ridic, in a good way. Other ridiculous things happen on the subway that don’t need to be mentioned.
(Two-person somersault example here.. but the subway one was way better)

In regards to the legend of the $18 mani/pedi in NYC: it’s TRUE.


picture. perfect.

Trivia tidbit: Chipper Jones hit the first homerun in the Nationals ballpark

Braves home opener tomorrow (Monday). Remember last year? Winter coats + baseball = so wrong.


bacon. fest.

March 29, 2008

Baconfest, ING Marathon and Braves home opener all this weekend. And I’m sitting here in 30 degree temps. Life is not fair!

From Skybil:

Look at all the deliciousness pooling in the left hand corner. Baconshot, Wes?

Finally, I have found a Boston team that I can root for.
