Here Ye! Here Ye! by stechico.
Wow! That was one fast month. The day seems to be getting shorter and shorter, and the weather changes more frequently than ever (at least in SF).
Since the start of the year, I created a new project for myself just to use my new toys more and get more experience as well with photography. It’s pretty much a‑photo-a-day. It’s hard to pick one photo that describes and sums up my day as I tend to take a bunch. But what can I tell you, so far so good. You may take a look at the Flickr set over here.
Amongst other things in the world of muah, I’ve been active as ever doing beta-testing for different Web 2.0 companies. It’s fun seeing and experience people’s accomplishments and creativity. Not to mention, it gives you ideas when the bulb is dim.
Besides the wait for my Yahoo! Mail Beta invite (still), I just signed up for a beta-test with OmniDrive. Hopefully, I can grab one and see what the fuss is all about. Techcrunch’s Michael Arrington seems to like it versus other companies currently in the online storage market.
Meanwhile, boarding season is fun so far. I went up with a couple of friends to North Tahoe for MLK Holiday Weekend. I can’t wait to go up again. Hopefully, some time soon but most likely for Biggy’s BDay first weekend of March around the South Tahoe area.
Anyways, three big trips for me this year: Hawaii, Japan and P.I. Other than the major saving-up for cash, I also need to save PTO days from MA. Going to go to Hawaii for Farida & Brad’s wedding on the first weekend of August. I think it’s in the north-west part of the Big Island. Should be good times as the old roomies from 916 are coming. That’ll be cool too as I have never been to the Big Island but have been to Oahu back in the early 90’s with my family.
Then, during the first week of November, Japan with some UCI buds. Belle seems to be the ring-leader of this trip. It’s just hard to get everyone on board this one as it is likely to span 10 days (a day or two more for relaxation after we get back from the flight). Hope it goes through, and we get a good group size to go. I can’t wait to take photos over there.
Last but not least, ever since my bro and I got here in 88–89, we haven’t spent Christmas nor New Year’s in the P.I. So, my grandma blurted out the idea that we should all go for the Holidays this year. What can I say, it’s all gravy with my grandma’s idea. Damn, that should be fun.
From my mind to yours, if you are ever in a rutt… turn to your friends for some good times!
After writing this, I got an email from Yahoo! Mail Beta regarding my invite. Finally! This thing is clean. I hope to see more new functionality. Dopeness.
it’s not where you’re from but where you at! dang, after an exhausting two and a half-day move from our old apt. rancho monterey (tustin ranch)… we finally got done sunday. now it’s just putting all the small ‘ish away.
but man, there were a couple of things… we’re in the middle of a traffic jam of some sort. next to us is the freeway, and a train track. above us is the landing path of small jet planes arriving at macarthur airport. but it’s all good (from diego to the bay), most of the noise start when we get up in the morning and end around 10ish pm before we all go to sleep. so it works out if you think about it. for example, if we don’t hear our alarm, you have three backups. one is the freeway full of cars; two is the airplanes about to land; and three is the train taking people to work—but we can’t really hear this one that much.
what else?… oh yeah, we found out that we have a “small” problem; more like a rodent problem. gee saw a tiny mouse nibbling at a salt packet from no-where. it probably came through our door since we didn’t have the weather stripping below it. oh well, a new companion for rusty.
so it’s a thursday night… getting this apt. ready and dandy for a year of livin’. tjm are at the PI doing there thang. hendo is on a break from the art center—so we doing a little freelance web/print company (name to be announced later when we have the site done). it’s september (to remember) when you know that mostly everyone and their momma have birthdays poppin’ left and right. oh yah, that reminds me… we’ll probably have a bday party sometime late-mid september (probably the 19th, a friday)… so keep your calendars marked and ready for a rockin’ jammy jam.
well it’s still hot and i have a lot of shiznit to do in this mutha. keep yourself “cool as ice” cause it’s still summer weather (late summer weather that is).
from my mind to yours, happy bday to them september babies.
