Well i got home early Sunday morning, and am finally out of that heat. Atlanta is a nice area but just way to hot in august! I would walk to work ( you know my nice and early 6:30 am) and it would be so hot and humid that I felt like I needed a shower when I got to work.
Well enough grumbling, Just got my new Video card installed, had to go out and buy a new Power supply. This card needs a 550w power supply minimum, and mine was 535W, booo!
but it is nice and the video performance is notable.
Looking forward to my folks being here on Friday. Have a bunch of things that might be interesting to do, and will have to see what they are up to.
A Good friend of mine just told me she is Pregnant!! not going to say who as it is her News to tell. But way to go! And i get back here and stop into Subway for a sub and a lady I chat with there greets me with "Guess what I am pregnant!" must be that time of year :)
So to all you lady's that want kids I say go for it, the galactic dice seem to be rolling good these days!
anyway back to playing with my new toys...
Oh wait I should tell you what I did in Atlanta.
Well I worked and we got a lot accomplished. The first weekend there I met up with one of my sisters and her husband and we went to Six flags over Georgia... The coasters we went on where good, but the lines where long (45 min+) and it seams that every coaster and ride exits through a gift shop :(
They have this flash pass, that lets you cut to the head of the line. In hind sight it would have been nice, but it costs the amount of another person into the park.
There where only two piss offs, well 3 if you include the heat, The first was the bat man ride, waited 45 min to get into the ride and I can't go because I am to tall for the ride. They couldn't lock down the restraint. The second was the Joppa Jons pizza. I normally like there pizza, but this stuff was crap. I was worse than the pizza I forgot and baked for 20 extra min. It was not fit for animal consumption let alone human consumption. And that rounded off weekend #1.
The second weekend didn't do much of anything.
The third weekend I checked out Friday night and stayed with sister and my folks are down visiting them that weekend, and this week (they are doing the visit the kids tour). So we all piled into the car and went to the Atlanta Botanical gardens. Downloading the pics now, so I might add some to the bottom of this post in a bit.
