Washington Market

I went to the Washington Market with (e:enknot) for lunch. The food was yummy and it is in a nice central downtown location. They had these shrimp samples. Whiochi unfoprtunately has cillantro (which I am alergic to) but I ate them anyways because they were so freakin yummy and free,

image

My lunch was a little more expensive than the equally delicious fare I would get at roswell but I fiugured it was worth evtnuring somewhere new, The prices for non-prepared food were very reasonable and they had much of the same stuff as the coop.

Today I designed a site for people with brain tumors. I really do not want to see any more pictures of brain tumors. It is really making me nervous in fact I started using my cell phone on speaker phone. At least the site looks pretty now to see if the design will be accepted. The old site is . More than a redesign I made a new CMS backend so that the client can update, add media, etc all from the site itself.

My Mother's Birthday

[size=m]The gift of the internet[/size]
(e:mike), (e:terry) and I spent the day with the family in order to celebrate my mother's birthday. mike and I decided to buy her the internet for her birthday. For christmas we got the parents a computer system and now the high speed internet. Someday soon they will know it is like to actually use the internet. I don't think my father has ever actually explored the net. I am so curious where it will take them.

[size=m]Shango's Bistro[/size]
For brunch we went to Shango's Bistro at 3260 Main street (MAP TO: 3260%20MAIN%20ST) . For those of you that have not been there it is right across from UB South Campus. The food is unbelievable and the prices are quite reasonable. I had always thought it was more expensive.

The orange juice was quite fanastic. I like how it came with a slice of orange on it.

Where else can you get green eggs and ham with procuitto
image

We all ordered our own brunch meal but the Banana Glaze French Toast sounded so good we ordered an extra plate for the table.

image

(e:terry) had scrambled eggs with sausage
image

(e:mike) and I had sirloin and poached egg - I already weigh 145 how crazy is that. Up five pounds in like a month.
image

My father insisted on dessert so we all shared a balckberry cabernet sorbet

Dollar Store[/size]
Afterward we decided to go to Bingo ayt uncle Sams bingo in canada. Sorry (e:thhecarrey) we are never going again. It was definatey not nearly as fun as I rememebered the time that (e:iriesara), (e:terry) and I walked there from Buffalo.

We got there early so we took my mom on a excusrion to the dollar store. She loves those store and we just didn't feel like dressing up [inlink]pyrcedgrrl,18[/inlink] and going to walmart.

Does this look like a sex toy or what?
image

I never even got close to winning.
image

And the no smoking room in really tiny and smell worse than the gym. Its so opposite of here where the no smoking room is the big room and the smokers have a little box.
image

This one is for you (e:iriesara)

Discuss

So my application is coming along great.

image

The most fun part is the user interface for adding and removing users from your group discussion or document creation. It is all using surebert to load in users dynamically and then it lets you free drag them in or out of the group. The ones in the group get the cute little face icon and their names change font. Those outside of the discussion group are bold black.

happy valentines day

This "morning" when I woke up at 1PM I heard someone knocking on the door. I ignored it because I was still feeling dazed from sleep. Man they were not kidding that the gym would make you sleep better. The problem is that I never had any problem sleeping. So now will I just always sleep?

image

So the noise at the door turned out to be a package. I assumed it was just YAMC but it turned out to be a valentines box from (e:hodown). Who else would get me maple syrup and mapple candy with a mini shrine to Virgin Mary.

The best part is a bottle of pure maple syrup labled northern comfort.

image

image

Inside there was also a bootie music CD.

I used to have a really big shrine to Mary but one day I came home and (e:terry) and (e:jacob) dressed it all up in orange nd black hell style. It was mostly stolen goods anyways so it probably fit.

Ok I am off to my little cousins birthday. We are already 2 hours late. The kids beat the hell out of a sponge bob square pants pinata. All that was left were some limbs.

Gym and Microsoft Local Live Maps

So I started going to the gym at the BAC downtown with (e:terry) and (e:lilho). It smells like high school. I had forgotten the smell of a lockeroom. It is a weird musty smell. Rememeber what it would smell like when you left your towel in the gym locker between gym classes. It is kind of like that smell.

The machines are pretty fun but I felt like I was going to throw up afterwars.

We are planning on going dancing tonight at Opium if we aren't broken fromt he gym

image

and to the Rabies Beamer Party [inlink]jacksmack,26[/inlink] tomorrow.

Has anyone checked out which is microsofts answer to online mapping that is significatly more amazing than google maps in terms of the clarity and options of the images. You can even view you house very upclose at bird's eye view and choose from four different angles.

image

Today at work I finished writing my drag/drop and effects javascript library that I have been working on. Eventually it will bring new features to the site. Also the discussion program is like 80% done. I just need to build in some sort of diff feature for comparing versions and its set to go. Adding users by dragging and dropping the little cute heads is really fun. You will see.

[size=m]The Pentagon[/size]
This picture is actually reduced here you should see the original. Make sure to click on the large building icon near the top left of the map. It super zooms in then. I am surprised they let you get this close to such sensitive places

I am obsessed with this pizza

I almost never eat at chain places. Those of you that know me, know that 98% of the time you can find me eating at some restaurant within two miles of my house. Part of it is lazyness but a major part of it is that the elmwood area offers so many good restaurants which in turn offer a wide variety of foods from American to Turkish and Pizza to fine dining.

However, today I saw the pizza hut ad for some chessy bites pizza and I am obsessed with having it. (e:mike) and I decided it was ana emergency and got righ ton the case. I visited the pizza hut site and believe it or not you can order online. Just not at our location, argh. I was even more excited for the order onlien potential. I wish I had carreid through with my takeout online site busienss plan but at least I have health care now.

So, it's on its way. Yummy freakin tastic.

Brokeback and Quitting

I realized today that I haven't had a cigarette since the beginning of January. That is a pretty long time for me. I think it is finally quits. That anti-smoking commerial where they squeeze out the guys aorta mixed with working at Roswell was the final winning combo for beating the demon. How can something so toxic feel so good. The only time I really crave them anymore is when I see them on television or in the movies.

On Sunday (e:liloh), (e:terry), (e:matthew), Dave and I went to go see Brokeback Mountain. They smoked a lot. At some points the movie was kind of slow but it was definately a good movie overall and gave a lot of perspective to what it is like to have parts of your your life censored. It's sad that it takes a fictional story to make people realize that that kind of stuff happens.

image

image

I still have a hard time concentratin at the movies. I just cannot get over the one way, single track media epxerience. After about ten minutes I start to get figety. I just am not used to being on the receving end of media creation without being able to do lots of other stuff like program, or design at the same time. SOmehow though, I can't stop thinking about their sad story.

Joining the BAC eating raw eggs and beef

We finally managed to join the BAC. We met with a trainer person and I said my goal is to get more muscle. I thought about it after and how the people that were most musclar in high school are the heavier in a not muscle way now. I though should I really bother t trick my metabolism into building mass. What is going to happen when I am done working out. Will it still be in the gain, gain, gain mode. I am doing it anyways. Three nights a week starting thursday. I signed my nam eon the dotted line,

image

image

Afterward we went with Sang to Korea House. The little side dishes of flavor are so fun but my main dish was sickening.

image

Well I ordered raw shredded beef on vegtables and rice but what I got was a giant blob of raw ground beef covered with a freakin raw egg. I draw the line at raw egg. I tried eating the beef around the egg but it all had so much raw egg on it.

image

I ended up just brining it home. I figure it will make a great hamburger. If I have worms I know where they came from.

I am still sick of forums

So yesterday I was bashing forums [inlink]paul,4156[/inlink] and today I was at howardforums to look and see if they had any updated info about firmware for my cellphone. While I was there I looked at a post about the difference between the tmobile version of my phone and the sprint one.

Someone asked, which is better GSM(tmobile) or EVDO (sprint)? One answer came like this. On eline response with about 15 lines about the War. Is that ever necessaray, I think if I built a better forum application one liners would only be allowed as comments and quotes would just be banned. Maybe a link to user baout the info where they could find it and that would be it. If that was the case you would not have to click through 35 pages to find about 10 lines of meaningful information.

image

I think the answer is a programmatic solution. I am going to write code that eats phpBB and other popular forums and distills them into tiny infomration pages minus userpics, minus quotes, minus animated gifs and minus style.

This one is even weirder They have a link for everything they do. Click the link to see it. Do they really need a itunes user link? Here is the site that makes the stupid bars.
