Over at my friends' house for game night. Sadly the post-zombie apocalypse board game filled up, so I'm playing LoL on my laptop. :P Dinner was yummy, and I'll probably be bad and stay up late when I get home and play more Mass Effect 2 as well...

Hope everybody is having a great new year. My NYE was really fun, gaming and delicious food and my friends' house once again, been celebrating with them usually for almost 15 years. :) NY day I got to spend with Elena, which was really fun, we're looking forward to moving to our new place in SF, which she booked a moving company for, though I...

retch:
The cookies are turning out... interestingly. I made a batch at xmas and they came out weird too, I thought it was because I cooked them in my friend's convection oven, but this batch is at home, so now I'm thinking the baking soda may be the culprit.

Yes, I'm spending...

Spent 10 hours on the wedding day doing food prep and grilling, did a lot of renovation work on the space in the weeks beforehand). She flew in on a hoop connected to our 10 ton crane (our Burning Man camp workspace was...

So my housemate is getting married this weekend, which is awesome because she and her fiancé are great people and I'm happy for them. But I'm going to really miss living with her, and I need to move, which is a bit of a pain. I like living in the south bay, I like having my nature preserve nearby for hiking, my movie...

Ugh, spent the holiday week sick enough with a flu for the entire thing to be unpleasant, but not so sick that it was dramatic. Just lonely and uncomfortable. Back at work, which is nice because I mostly didn't see other people during the week.

I had an amazing time at Burning Man this year. It was my first burn in 8 years, and my first time there without the girlfriend with whom I went to my first four burns, which did alter the experience. I was a little lonelier than I've ever been at a Burning Man, but I built fantastic friendships with a bunch of people from
