Timothy McTim Tim

Photos from the trip are now posted to photos, including the trip to Funspot (and other randomness), miniature golf, and almost every (if not every) board game we played. Whee.

(Of course, if you followed the RSS feed, you’d know this already. Even though I accidentally misdated the photo post so they’re from an hour in the future.)

Awesome vacation was awesome. I need to do that more often.


So I took the week off for a (much needed) vacation to visit Tim in Connecticut.

The Amtrak trip over was really, really nice. Totally stress-free compared to airports. The views were amazing (although maybe I’m just jaded about airborne pictures since I fly so much), the seats had a ton of legroom (I could stretch out my legs horizontally!), there were power outlets, and I could use any electronic device (and my phone) at any time.

The only slightly stressful part was Penn Station in NYC, which is one of the busiest places I’ve ever been, but even that initial feeling of being overwhelmed turned into a sense of adventurism (that’s totally a word) once I left the arrivals floor and got to the main floor.

Time at Tim’s has been filled with lots of games and awesome. Ian is here now, and Keith will be joining us later this week.

Last night we went to Sushi Palace, an all-you-can-eat place that isn’t a traditional buffet… you put down orders for plates of food or sushi on slips of paper, and they bring them out to you, freshly made. I ate a ton of sushi (and a ton of eel), but it was so good.

Yay vacation.


There were board games last night.






Happy Anna and apathetic Isaac.

Confused Emily.

More crazy.

That’s actually a pretty good screwdriver and screw.


Got back from San Francisco last night. Woke up this morning at 10:30 (!) and immediately felt like crap, so I decided to take the day off. Best idea ever. I managed to sleep in (some more), run KoL turns, process and tag all 1871 photos from the trip, and have meals on time. (Only 1871 photos? I’m getting more restrained with photos. Kind of. At least compared to my Carnival 2009 trip where I took 10840 photos and my Carnival 2010 trip where I took 6733 photos.)

As such, photos are now posted to photos. It was kind of an awesome week.
life has also been updated.

I owed Sharon some money. I decided to give it to her entirely in $1 bills (as per an earlier email conversation). It was awesome.

A couple photos also deserve a bit more explanation.

That’s the most oblivious cat ever. It always sits in exactly the same pose with a big goofy smile on its face. No wonder its owners left it behind.

San Francisco constructions sites cause cancer. Too bad there’s construction sites everywhere.

Poor Koyel. We didn’t think she would stop talking on the phone. Well, at least Shawn and Sharon didn’t. Or something. I was kind of out of it at the time.

It’s Andrew with Andrew! Afterwards, we tried to draw him in Crayon physics. It didn’t work nearly as well.

ZMONG best tofu ever :O
