Hockey gear is expensive
United lost my hockey bag on my last flight over to San Jose. Been 3 days, so I get to file a claim and get replacement gear. Damn. Been about 6 years since I bought stuff, and man, is it expensive. Good thing united is supposed to pay for it. Breaking in new skates is going to SUCK!!!

In other news, the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album rocks!!!

Been a while
Well, after 6 months in DC, as luck would have it, I find myself back in the bay area for a new client. So now I'm living in DC, but working in SJ. Quite ironic...

After 6 months of no photography at all, I pestered ajmeow to let me take pictures, and here is what we ended up with:

Well, yes, it is cold out east !
Most of you already know this, but I moved to DC last weekend. For those who don't know the history, my company in Cali pretty much shut down. We saw the signs a few months ago, but it really became obvious in early Jan that there wasn't much of a future for Metreo. So I talked to a few people, and then got in touch with a friend of mine who has his own consulting company in DC. He was looking for people, and after just a few discussions, offered me a job. Long story short, a month later, here I am in DC, doing something completely new and different!
Its been very busy so far, and I haven't really had a chance to explore the area at all. I got in on Sunday evening, and the last few days have just been spent going to and from work. I'm staying with my buddy from highschool, so there isn't any real urgency for finding a place, but I should start looking soon. Maybe this weekend.
Got my bike delivered at work yesterday, however, its too freaking cold to ride it back to my buddy's place. Still waiting for the car.
Next update will on the very different working environment out east.

Rock is dead ! aka DIE CLEAR CHANNEL DIE !!!!
Got in the car and the radio comes on blaring spanish music. WTF!!!! Turns out channel 104.9 is now 'LaRomantica'. WTF !!!! Bastards did the same thing to 92.3 a year or so ago. You're seriously telling me there are more people listening to spanish romance music than alternative rock??!! AAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHH...

Current Mood: pissed off

Some things I miss about the east coast.
Their museums, and the exhibits. I would have loved to see this in person, but alas, must be satisfied with the online exhibition.

Bound for Glory - America in Color 1939 - 1943

Albany, NY
For those of you who don't know, I went to school in upstate NY.
I visited a lot the first year after I graduated, and I was back there last year for my 5 year reunion.
I'm out in Albany this week for a customer visit, and it really is amazing how different it is from the
west coast, and the memories it brings back:
- Old, OLD victorian houses
- Rivers, creeks, levees
- Small town feel, with gas stations locally ownned and operated (Steve's gas stop)
- The greenery...

Every now and then I think of how cool it would be to move back east. But then I'm reminded of the winters
and sudddenly my San Jose mortgage becomes bearable =)
I do miss the colors of the fall tho...

Self (?) Service ...
The post office I go to has this funky new "Self Service Automated Postage Center". The theory is
that you don't have to wait in line for the counters, you can just go to this thing and do it all yourself.
Its really cool actually. But what's the best feature, you ask? The Post Office employee standing next
to it doing everything for you o_O ! So much for self service...

My friend lent me her Maroon 5 - Songs about Jane CD. I was blown away. That is one of the best
complete albums I've heard in a long long time. The songs that they don't play on the radio are as good
if not better, than the ones that they do play.

The rhythm of her conversation
The perfection of her creation
The sex she slipped into my coffee
The way she felt when she first saw me
