Real Pirates! - Ocean pirate attacks surge: report - Oct. 30, 2003
Aargh! Ahoy matey! Who woulda thunk that there are real pirates, and that they actually a problem in this Day N Age. You would think that that pirates would be gone by now (in the age of radar, gps, etc.) But Pirates are cool, because they talk funny. Arrgghghghh! Matey!

Happy Halloween, Everyone!

yay! mike duff is coming to Boston so we can hang out tonight. In the meantime, I went to work as a "street punk", with shiny pants, tight sweater (with orange edging) and a knit cap. I was keeping it real, racing up and down the office in my sneaks.

Nick made Squash Soup

Last week I tried Squash soup for the first time. I have to say, I really liked it. He used butternut squash and also made some chicken with bacon. I can't say that I've had such a great meal in a while. :) It was finger-lickin' good! 'Specially with a side of Joe Schmoe to go with it.

Green Street Studios

Zahra was nice enough to point me to the Green Street Studios -- Current Schedule. It's just down the street from me, so perhaps I can fit in a Taichi or dance class. Thanks Zahra!

Badger, Mushroom, Snake

Some of you know that I wake up early during Mushroom Season to get mushrooms in Animal Crossing. Nick, who is awesome, sent me this Badger, Mushroom, Snake flash animation in celebration. It is too cute! MUSHROOM, MAGIC Mushroom! Hahahahah! Today I woke up too late to get the mushrooms, but I did try. :)

Splat Professor

Just ran across Andrew Gouldstone's research page. I didn't know you could be a professor of Splat. Can't wait to see their lab group t-shirts. :)

Just as I thought!

I am addicted to Animal Crossing... Right after trekking all the way to Downtown Crossing for a sausage and pepper, minute maid, and mixed nuts, I went right back to playing.

Happy Birthday to Me!

I am 28 today! Yay! I had dimsum this morning with the coolest people, and got a card from Nick and my mom. Yesterday I went to Rain's party and also got a card from Ela & Arrin. I also got the coolest birthday Card from ->IAN<-, another from Barbie, and another from Shawn. Then we went out to eat Brazilian Barbeque with Roo, Sopps, Jim, Virginia and RIch-- all in all a satisfying way to ring in the 28th year of my life. Oh, and I got a beautiful bouquet of yellow-red roses (14!) that smell great, along with a Borders books gift certificate. Then we chomped down on the most delicious Hiz Biz cake, designed by Sopps. Then a mad dash home to play with the NGC Animal Crossing game I got. Ohh, wee, I was playing until around 3AM, and my eyes were almost shut. Such a cute game!!!!! I know, I am going to be addicted. :)

MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team

Go MIT! The new MIT Solar Car is out. I remember my freshman summer, riding with the Dane Hovey Racing Team and helping out alongside the Manta (the MIT solar car back then). This year, the team is in Australia, and I am sure they will make us proud. The name of this year's car is Tesseract.

Sweet Deep Fried Ice Cream with Noga and Zahra at Thai Basil

There we are, at Thai Basil on Newbury. Dinner was great, and the atmosphere was quiet. Then the fire alarm went off a few times. We stayed for ice cream, and then headed to The Other Side Cafe on the other side of Newbury. The Other Side was playing rap and hiphop at full blast, until around 11PM, then they mellowed out.
