This is a shot of the exterior of the Georgia Aquarium at around noon today. Great day to be outdoors away from all the fish. Or maybe not. I hear a weekday might be my only shot at seeing the interior of this place.

    My first iPod died as I was exiting the aquarium’s media preview party in December. I didn’t drop it. I just died.

    I’ve since purchased a Nano, but it’s not the same.

    Damn you iPod jinxing fishes all to hell!

    Also note that the place closes at 6pm on weekdays — so you people who work during the day — yeah they really don’t make any provisions for you.

    I went to the GA Aquarium this week with my wife and two kids. Here’s my take:

    1. Can’t enter building from parking deck without going all the way around the entire building. BAD.

    2. Too dang expensive. Since Home Depot man paid for everything, why didn’t he subsidize the ticket price so everyone from poor people to just middle-of-the-roaders can afford to go more than once?

    3. Hard to navigate around among the crowds. I wonder if it’d be better to let groups in for guided tours, not to let them run amok.

    4. Not enough signage to tell us where ramps are for wheelchairs or strollers.

    5. They told me I’d have to wait ’til November 2006 to buy an annual pass. Give me a break. I’m already losing interest. God knows if I’ll even give a you-know-what by November!

    Overall: I won’t be going back. It’s an absolutely beautiful place, but the price and inconvenience overshadows that.
