Best Innovation Kept on the Down Low

Next year you'll be able to plug your ipod into your plane seat, and not just to keep it charged, but to view its video content on your little airplane tv screen as well.

If you ask me, this is a big deal.

Read about it at Apple.

Best Fuzzy Thanksgiving Memories

Taking pictures is like keeping a journal, and if I don't take a lot of pictures, I barely remember what happens.

Take this past weekend, for example. I can hardly piece it together.

I think I went to Cafe Rio with Andrew and Heather but my only picture is from when I accidentally took a picture of the table at the restaurant.

And apparently that night I had a cheeseburger from the A&W?

Thanksgiving. I don't know if we ate anything, but Grandma learned to video chat (which I haven't even done myself) while Jen showed off her baby.

I do remember that it can be very hard to find food for sale on your way to Logan on Thanksgiving night, but "luckily" I found a Beto's that was open.

If you, like me, haven't eaten at Beto's for a few years, it's best to keep it that way. Oh, who am I kidding. Beto's is the most delicious bad food there is.

As I showed up before, I remember going to the park in Logan quite well, but apparently another thing about Logan is that they have electricity.

One morning I watched Emily wrap a
wedding present.

Someone got married, we were trying to find Erin Sanchez at the wedding. On Temple Square.

This is a big picture of who got married, like I said, I was just stopping by, looking for Erin.

One thing I remember very vividly: Blue Iguana with Dirk, Jo, Niall (my Glasgow-Penpal), and Mitch.

Another thing. I got to borrow my Cousin Spencer's car.

And those, honestly, are all I have to show for my Thanksgiving in Utah.

Wait. I forgot one.

Best Lapse

This might be the longest I've ever gone without posting, huh?
Things might get back to "normal" tomorrow.

Best Weekend Round-Up

Here's a thrown-together overview of my under-photographed weekend.


Liesel's birthday!! Who would have guessed that Erin also had a Doremon costume?


First activity of the evening: Checking out Jared Clark's art down by the river in Brooklyn.

I hadn't realized there were some Bansky works in the neighborhood.

Second activity of the evening: Checking out Jared Clark's dance moves over at Emily's birthday party.

To the victor . . .

But, seriously, Emily threw herself a raging party. Just look at this madness.

Hayley and I assumed DJ duties and were able to scare up a bit of white-people dance music from Emily's Salsafied iPod.


Boxers parked on 6th Avenue?

Best Candid Celebrity Photography

Debate: Is this Aaron Eckhart?

If so, since when did the Ensign decide to begin competing with People/Us Weekly/In Touch, etc.?

But seriously, did the Ensign photo editor know who this was when they picked out this picture?

(See it for yourself on pg. 57 of the new Nov 2006 Ensign)

Best Fashion Notice

I can't believe how back in style flannel shirts are.

I dare you to tell me I'm wrong about this.

Best Email I Just Got

Attention New Yorkers, this email (from Jared Clark) applies to all of us:

so i'm coming up a third time to nyc and i'm putting together a sort of art reception for the work i did in brooklyn out by the water and i want to give you an official invite. if the weather is o.k. i'm thinking about 5 p.m. this saturday on kent and 6th....L train bedford and 7th, then just walk to towards manhattan til you hit the water and go left on kent. if you end up coming please invite as many people as you'd like. i'm going to bring drinks and goodies and i think it would be great to get a lot of people out.

I think everyone should go to this. I mean, really, when was the last time you went to Brooklyn in the afternoon?
And click Here if you're wondering what Jared means when he talks about his work out by the water in Brooklyn.

Best Joke Taken Too Far

First of all, if you read Cindy's blog, please pretend that this is all news to you.

Monday morning I took a brief, impulsive trip . . .

To Alaska!

Just joking! I went to Seattle to see Cindy.

You see, a couple of weeks ago Cindy said to me "Hey, I've got these tickets for a joke show, you should come out and see it" and she was all joking and I joked back "Yeah, maybe I will." But here's the thing . . . I wasn't really joking, because I did go to Seattle.

We ate at the Honey Hole.

But I was still hungry so went to Tacos del Mar.

Then we went to the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum. Not to be negative or infer that I didn't like either museum, but if you're ever considering going, it's just better that you don't.

These were the jokes.

The next morning I got up and took a walk

To the most corporate looking Taco Time I've ever seen

Because, as you know, I cannot resist regional fast food. Particularly if it is Mexican.

Then that afternoon I went downtown with Cindy and her roommate Jane and we ate at Ivar's.

We were also joined by Melanee (who I once knew as "Luckee Martini") who I hadn't seen in ages. She has three kids now!

We fed the seagulls. Feeding seagulls is primarily a terrifying activity.

It was Jane's birthday so that night I got to go to her birthday dinner at Sam's Sushi (which was magnificent)

And then it was time to go home to New York, except for one little thing.

I feel this picture really captures the essence of being stuck at an airport in the middle of the night, wondering if the engine can be fixed or not.
