I’m back from Atlanta. The trip was good, I got to see Eric and Becky and the work stuff is coming along nicely as well.
Top 3 highlights of the sightseeing
Number Three: The Olympic Park
Not really all that cool. Which says a lot about Atlanta. But… it was a fun time. There were large pillars of light.
Number Two: CNN headquarters.
Suprisingly awesome, CNN headquarters is a stronghold like none I’ve ever seen. Three giant buildings were connected together via a huge atrium. It was amazing. Apparently Ted Turner is richer than God.
AND THE NUMBER ONE COOLEST THING IN ATLANTA: The Eternal Flame of the Confederacy
For year’s you’ve wondered “where is the eternal flame of the confederacy?” And now you know: Atlanta.
That’s right. If you go to the popular shopping area ‘atlanta underground’ there’s a single burning gas lamplight located at the far end. There’s even damage to the lightpole from when a cannon ball hit it during the Civil War. It burns quietly as a symbol of all the greatness of the confederacy. Go Confederates!
In other news, while I was in Georgia someone dropped the ball and forgot to vote for mike d on WPTopsite.
In still other news, I think I’m going to have to go back to Georgia on Sunday.
