Deep Fried In Atlanta!


If my brother Rob had asked me to move to the Sun, I would have put on my asbestos panties and flew straight into oblivion! As it was, I only had to go as far as Atlanta! And to my delight... it's far from Oblivion here! 




I made the terrible mistake of ordering my tickets at 3am and paid the price by not noticing that I had a six hour stop over in Minneapolis! I love the town don't get me wrong, but in true Scott Kick fashion, I just pulled up my trousers and went on a hunt for Deep Fried Cheese Curds! 


Mission accomplished! 

There are signs right away that you're not in nice safe, liberal Seattle anymore...



I knew there would be adjustments, but hell, I wasn't even close to the Deep South, and there were already signs for concern! 



I mean... a proactive vending machine? Are you really eating that many deep fried foods? Doubts aside...

Onward to Atlanta! 

Rob picked me up from the airport and after an unexpected and welcome giant hug from my little brother, my name was announced on the loud speakers! "Scott Kick" please come to Northwest Airlines Terminal Office!"

Oh crap. Here we go.

I've had my luggage lost the last four times I've traveled. Once in Santa Barbara I was handed a toothbrush from the airline rep and told that I "might want to start buying new clothes"! 

Ha! Not this time! They just had my bag in the office and sent me on my way with little ado! I didn't even have to wait! 



"It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on Earth has ever produced the phrase, 'as pretty as an airport.' Airports are ugly. Some are very ugly. Some attain a degree of ugliness that can only be the result of a special effort"

Douglas Adams.





So Rob takes me straight to a bar called the Highlander... named after the film, and fashioned after Seattle, I loved it imediately! 



That's right... they have a beer called 420, and better yet... it's freaking delicious! 

After some catching up, we headed over to my new home for the next year and what was going to prove to be a minor heart attack! 

I had seen some on-line video Rob had shot of the place, but it in no way captured this loft apartments true scale! I was in awe! 

... I still am! 


Camera Phone Picture... sorry... but you're getting the idea here!                                          Love it!
