work holiday party 2007
Alternate route home 2007
Yes, that's right; the traffic on the Bay Bridge tonight was so bad that it was faster for my friend Beth and I to get home by way of the Richmond - San Rafael and Golden Gate bridges.
A random desktop image would like to inform me of how many hours left 2007
I have a balloon tied to my chair 2007
I got a promotion at The Workplace Whose Name I Do Not Mention On My Immensely Googleable Personal Sites. Among the benefits, balloon!
How early am I up today? Check out the sky to the east... 2007
["Dinah coming in to work early" on Joe's Google Calendar. This was probably for a phone meeting with folks in other timezones.]
At office, sun not yet up. Ah, fall...
The Air Canada experience 2007
This Air Canada gate (for my trip to Victoria, BC for Access pre-conference) apparently used to be an American gate judging by the clean spot from the old American signage.
Power, albeit weak power, but power (!) on the plane
in Denver for LITA conference 2007
Rioja menu & my view of salad & dessert prep

The "Picnic" at Rioja, Denver

Why I go to Rioja: the amazing black truffle & mushroom gnocci

My commute doesn't suck. 2007
Big fire on Treasure Island
[From the commute home:]
Not much left.
out with friends from work during the conference 2007
Watching the artists at work 2007
The drivers of this big gear get such fluid motion out of it. Very impressive.
And now we'll just make certain no one messes with the little gear...
Neatly protecting the small vehicle with the big at the end of the workday.
Cincinnati airport 2007
Missed flight home due to first flight being late. On next flight four hours later. Blah.
Nothing better on moving into a new place... 2007
... than to get up at 4:30am the next morning and fly off on business trips.
Springfield, MO 2007
Country radio station billboard, Springfield, MO.
Ayup, that's the name of the place.
to Missouri 2007
In case you were wondering, the answer is: Missouri.
I am not among my people.
The bathroom has a tv. A tv being, apparently, more important than counter space here.
Saturday Discardia 2007
Need a little chest freezer?
5.3 cubic feet. Nice for those who make soups or like to minimize their shopping trips to Trader Joe's.
$90 and you pick it up at my place in the Castro, SF. It's not heavy.
Still under 5 more years warranty against compressor failure. Have manual, warranty & receipt.
Inside view of freezer with 7oz mac & cheese boxes for scale
Selling the catsuit. *sigh*
From the 2003 work Xmas party. Of course someone gave me two copies.
Nice folks at Nirvana on Castro St
When I first moved into this apartment I got a nice welcome from Brent-Dawg at Nirvana.
Another cool receipt doodle from Brent-Dawg at Nirvana
I'd forgotten how damn cool our cards were at SoftDevices
And that my old title was "Mission Commander".
Ah, the good ol' startup days...
Cool Halcyon sketch on the front of the awards book from 3 years ago
Why yes, I am one of those stinking liberals
(The joint membership is with my grandfather, who died at the end of 2001 but inspires me still)
gone now, but I always liked the business card for Friendly Spirits
Can't knock that phone number either.
Mysterious to-do list from my former housemate, Chris P.
disappointing 16th St restaurant
walked by there for years, finally tried it this past year, underwhelmed
old shopping list found among other papers
vintage probably ~2004-2005
Christmas Revels, 2004, 18th Century Scotland theme
Dance-Along Nutcracker, 2004
Good advice when you want to focus
Working/playing hard today
Amazing how much you can done when you just sit down and finally start doing it (and when you decide that a mobile phone just sent straight to Flickr is good enough photo quality instead of thinking you need to scan everything).
Good restaurant I went to a few years ago with family
Pleasure-inducing map received on first visit to the mighty Powells Books
The logo of my friend Ron Pottol's old employer Appaloosa Interactive always reminded me of the Playboy character Femlin
Juan Muñoz sculptures
from the December 2001 issue of Smithsonian. I'd really like to see these someday.
Almost filled up recycling bag #1 today
old self portrait by my friend B.J. West
Probably from 1992 since this is, I believe in the St. John St. apartment building we were living in in San Jose then.
Pictures from [a certain person] of a visit to the walrus pool at the zoo
Another friendly walrus comes to visit
VERY happy walrus!
Lest you think that masturbation is some hominid-only sort of thing...
Title portion of an article by Chris Hudak
Can't remember when this was from. First half of the 1990's I'd guess.
My favorite Heifer Project picture

The most intense illustration of the work Doctors Without Borders does
The mailings with the bracelet and the hole card just shake you to realize how extreme the situation is. Children are starving to death. Still. Despite all our worldwide wealth, we still let children starve to death. And it's a slow, painful process for child and parent. And it's preventable.
The wonderful look of the first Lord Loves A Working Man demo album
Which is a CD, not a record, of course.

Really nice tower in the corner of the playpen

Philadelphia to NYC 2007
Philadelphia 30th Street Station
St. Patrick's Cathedral, from the hotel room window
St. Pat's again, from the 7th floor restaurant
How I ever locate my hotel room is a mystery
Last night at the Wayne was at least the second time I've been given room 404.
