Amy's Ice Cream in Austin

Drove down to Austin today. It took about 4 and a half hours - going the speed limit the whole way. Which is how I usually drive. Anyway, came out here to visit my sister and her boyfriend. They took us to a really nice dinner. The food wasn't so amazing - standard tourist spot type fare - but the view was just great. The place was called "Oasis", and it was up on the top of a hill overlooking Lake Travis. We got a great view of the sunset. Highly recommended.
After dinner we met up with dad, and went down to Amy's ice cream. It was really good, but not as good as Halo Pub.

Flew to Dallas

I made it to Dallas, and celebrated my mom's birthday. Now I'm camped out at the Alma Mater, Southern Methodist University trying to catch up on email and get some work done. I located the interview NPR did with Puffy AmiYumi (thanks Adam!)

Evan and Veronica's Wedding

Evan and VeronicaI went to Evan and Veronica's wedding today. It was out at a park in New Jersey, and was a lot of fun. I would have loved to have stayed for more of the merriment, but I had to catch a plane to Dallas...

Bachelor Party in Las Vegas

Bachelorette group in Las VegasJust got back from Las Vegas. That is an expensive city. I've got some pictures up over here. Maybe. I think I'll be eating lots of curry rice - at least until my next paycheck...

Max Soho and Showman's

Met up with Y.I. for a video (As Good As It Gets) and dinner. We ate at Max SoHa which is usually pretty good. Then we headed down to Showman's for some drinks and jazz. Pretty fun evening, all told.

Fort Tryon Picnic

Fort Tryon PicnicMet some friends at Fort Tryon park near the Cloisters for a picnic. I brought the proverbial bucket of KFC chicken. While walking through the park, I noticed a cute little cafe that I've put on my list of places to try called The New Leaf Cafe. I haven't had good luck with picnics - it was really hot and humid, and at the previous picnic I was on (4th of July 2002) in Central Park it was also amazingly, meltingly hot.

The Mercer Kitchen

Brunch downtown at SoHo with Y.I. at a place I've been meaning to try, The Mercer Kitchen. Brunch has been one of my favorite meals lately, and I've been frequenting Kitchenette Uptown, so it was nice to compare. I had a great pancakes with banannas and mixed berries dish. Really fresh, tasty fruit. Afterwards, we checked out the new Apple store (pretty cool!) and did some shopping in the area. I picked up a new candle from Portico and some clothes on sale from Bananna Republic...

Some Freak Magazine

Blue haired girl7/24/2002 Evening - Went downtown to meet Benkei and friends. Had dinner at Cafeteria. Looking over the menu, I just had to get the Fried Chicken and Waffles. I love breakfast. I'm a big fan of fried chicken. Why not put them together? Before eating, I took a picture of a cute blue-haired girl. I asked before hand, just because you know, it would be strange otherwise. Not like it wasn't strange enough as it was. Anyway, when I took the picture she said that she had made a face, but I said that was fine, since I didn't want to make her feel like I was hitting on her or anything. As I left, her friend said "Oh great, now you're gonna be in some freak magazine."
