Thinking about how I might partition 24 pounds of meat while eating salad directly from the bag.

Not all those who wander are lost

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Friday dinner made by AP’s master gardener friend. Roasted brussels sprouts, challah bread, cous cous with butternut squash, harisa spiced eggplant, golden and red beets. And bottles of stuff.

Checking out this rad table and sharing a picture of it on Instagram in my rad AirBnB in Berkeley after a day of QS meetings in the city and UC Berkeley. Getting ready for sleep. Exhausted.

Building an exclusively explicit playlist

Day 31

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Beer tasting – a “flight” – at Faultline Brewery. Also, white fish ceviche and a taste of flat iron steak with chard and a potato-risotto cake. With AP and friends EM and B something. Most surprised by “Best Bitter.” Had to take 3 sips before admitting it was good. Was very harsh at first. Enjoyed Hefe Weizen quite a bit and loved learning about the filtration process and how carbonation has to be added to filtered beers in order to keep the bubbles. So interesting that I want to learn more, even if I have to get very, very drunk in order to do so. The stout was insane. It actually did taste like chocolate and coal. The ceviche had good flavors but needed more than fish.

Day 30

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Three little pigs, Thai chicken drumettes, and Tuna tartare, plus 50/50 Split (Gin, Vodka, and some citrus-y wine with olive and onion) at Park Place with AP. Was surprisingly good.

Day 29

Saturday, March 9th, 2013


At QS-San Francisco, Rick Black (I forgot his first name) was talking about his diet and exercise regime and, I think, on this slide talking about the effects of a high-fat diet (body fat reduced more than high protein, paleo, or other diets). With AP, who took the photo as a favor when my Android camera showed only a white screen at the front when attempting this same shot. Score one more for the iPhone.

Sick and bored so I decided to do my hair

Day 27

Notes on screen. Notes on paper. Slide zero of tomorrow’s presentation. I’m chill. Ready to tuck into bed early. In Berkeley with AC half a floor up.

A bug’s life

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

What would you do if you were trapped between a screen and glass? Could this be a metaphor for the device sandwich in which so many of us find ourselves? The bugs quietly shout: “Let me out! No, it’s ok. I’m fine.”

Day 26

Just from Doug Muneuz’ “Fearless Genius” popup photo gallery at the Heading back to car after walk around Stanford with AP.

Day 25

Monday, March 4th, 2013


After BC meeting, with AP picking up essentials at TJ’s: gin, unsweetened cocoa powders, European bread, fake eggs and real eggs. First, impromptu party later took place at 939.
