Bungie + Ensemble = Halo Wars

The internet is already going nuts with information. It's pretty neat to watch :) Halo Wars


Camera toss!

Would you believe there is a huge group of people online that toss their cameras into the air and catch them (most of the time) trying to take pictures?

Definitely makes for some very cool pictures - check out their flickr pool.

I think Pat's take on it sums it up best:

Pat: this makes me hyperventillate: http://www.flickr.com/photos/earthtoneremix/194390170/
Pat: evidently, there's a whole cult of camera tossers.
Pat: and it originated here in austin
Pat: there's a blog for it, too
Pat: it seems most of the cameras tossed are point-and-shotos
Pat: shoots
Pat: though there's a review on the blog of the tossability of the canon 10d
Pat: which hurts my soul
Pat: and my pocketbook
Pat: this cult puts out some beautiful photos, though.


Holy crap!

Job == Awesome. Just ask me why. That is all.
Woo hoo!

Awesome! Paul and I each conquered a blue climb at Stoneworks today (each of us got up a different blue one). To put that in context... Stoneworks is a rock climbing gym that has three difficulty levels - green, blue and black. Up until now, we were playing on the greens, to the point where we could both get up them w/o pretty much any problem at all. Today we decided to tackle all blues and actually managed to get up them! Talk about a confidence boost - now we have to get up all the blues in the gym...

Also, sushi after a climb at a random Japanese sushi house that happens to be open until 1am right off the freeway is good. As is the five hours of coffee afterwards.

Need. Sleep.


Must digest food...

Oh man, I am ever so stuffed. The parents and sister came into and mom brought a veritable smorgasbord of home cooked Indian food for Paul, Katy and David, who came over tonight. You know there's going to be a lot of food when you're overwhelmed by the appetizers alone.

For once, the weather was actually beautiful outside, so we got to eat on the patio, chat and enjoy the weather and view from the backyard... course... after course... after course... of tons of food. And somehow you would think that six people eating as much as they could through all this food would put a dent in the food that my mother brought. You would be very wrong. Somehow, even after eating dinner and with three people taking leftovers home, I have a fridge and freezer jam packed with home cooked food.

Truly amazing. I think my mother's home cooking ability should be the eigth wonder of the world. It literally might involve food that is self replicating, because it never seems to disappear. I mean, this could solve world hunger! She almost literally pulled sonf (those little Fennel seeds you eat after your meal at Indian food restaurants) out of thin air. I think she's the MacGuyver of food. Katy's theory is that she's a witch.

I'm not sure I can eat the leftovers fast enough...
