Divali Party and Haircut

Finally cut my hair.
image

Then last night (e:samathon86) took us to a davali party in the suburbs. The food was amazing. The hostess w as so gracious. There was a turkey with cranberry chutney and lots of delicious side dishes. There were also great desserts including a pumpkin, banana creme dessert that was one of the best desserts I ever had. (e:yesthatcasey) and I also wore outfits sent by sameers mom from india.

I liked wearing the outfit and afterwards we hit the town and headed to DBGBs on Allen. I must have fit the part because these american girls wouldn't believe my name was Paul. They kept said things like what is your real name back home? and Don't be shy, what do your parents call you? Its really interesting to be perceived as a foreigner at home.

Wegman's Lunch

I always get the strangest things when I eat at the wegmans buffet. Unfortunately, he breakfast buffet had very few veggies. On the other hand they did have bacon and chicken wings. I now think bacon wrapped chicken wings could work out.

Romanesco

I love this stuff. Its a cruciferous family vegetable that tastes similar to brocoli and cauliflower. It especially solid compared to either and slightly milder taste.

Madonna's on Allen - Take One

I love cafe 59, so I was thrilled when I heard the owners opened a new location in the space that used to be fiddle heads.

(e:terry) and I headed over there for dinner on wednesday. The food was reasonablely priced, delicious and well portioned. I can't decide what was better the sausage in red sauce or the shrimp with ceci beans in lemon and olive oil.

I think we are going to return there with (e:hodown) tonight.

samsung is amazing

Sasmsung touchscreen laptops and computers seem so awesome. Too bad they come with windows 8. I wonder how the touchscreen works in linux. I kind of wish I got this instead of the MacBook air. Well except for that despite the thinness its too heavy.

Windows 8 makes me crazy. I tried a file search. After it returned no matching files I got stuck. Esc wouldn't get me out. Swipe sideways wouldn't get me out, F4 wouldn't get me out. Ctrl W wouldn't get me out. Ctrl Q wouldn't get me 'out. Argh.

Niagara Falls With the Hos

We traveled down to the falls with the Hos to let zooey see the falls for the first time. She missed most of it because she wouldnt stop climbing on the rocks. Sounds like a future hiker.

The sunset at the falls was awesome in a nuke bomb kind of way.

The Galaxy Note 2 with Jellybean

I finally received my galaxy note 2 this weekend. It definately feels l I ke the future. The device is unbelieably fast. In fact it takes pictures instantaneously.

I seriously can't imagine having an iphone in comparison and its not like I don't have ios experience. I had 3 iphones and and ipad 3 with ios six.

The navigation voice on this thing is totally amazing. It actually sounds like a real person versus siri or the previous android navigation voice. It is literally the best TTS engine I have ever heard. Better than the AT&T naturally clear voices.

The only weird thing is the lack of a deducated search button and the fact that the home button is a physical button. Personally I prefer all capacitive buttons as the last physical home button I had on the iphone broke. I can't understand why they would remove the search button on a device that is so driven by search.

Here is the best overall review of the phone I have seen

It also was my first experience with jellybean All around an excellent experience.

Night on the town

We went out downtown last night. First to see sharon von etten at the town ballroom and then out to the vault and later marcellas.

The city was strangely dead. There were so few people out that is was almost zombie, post apocolyse creepy. On the way home around 2:30 there was almost no one in the street besides us which is pretty rare for a friday. Maybe everyone is already in winter mode.

The drag show at marcellas was the worst one I ever saw. The energy was so low.
