It’s known as V-Town…

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009 by calixton

…in the Bay Area (mostly to V-Town residents). Everywhere else it’s known as the California town that went bankrupt—Vallejo. Some photos from early May—boats, ducks, trees, sky. 10 V-Town photos on Picasa.

Eating out…

Friday, June 26th, 2009 by calixton

…and eating in and eating out again. (For those who complain, “Stop posting photos of things you’ve eaten,” I  say, “Stop complaining about my posting photos of things I’ve eaten. Go have a snack, for Pete’s sake.”) Miss T and I have watched with some interest the opening of a Black Bear Diner in the […]

Kids fighting ghosts…

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009 by calixton

…in anime (Natsume Yūjin-Chō and Ghost Stories). [Warning: Rambling anime pseudo-review blah-blah-blah follows.] Miss T and I have been watching two anime series that delve into Japanese ghost folklore. Both feature: teen-aged protagonists (like most anime, seemingly); powerful spirits in the form of cats; Japanese ghosts and monsters; and, books with the ability to deal […]

Summer arrives…

Friday, June 19th, 2009 by calixton

…in the Central Valley. It’s cool and dark now, but earlier today was clear and bright and just a tad above 90°. Sadly, our in-the-mid-70s extended spring temperatures are over. Time to move underground.

Fight Lost germs…

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009 by calixton

…with DHARMA Initiative Disinfectant Spray. Just because Lost is on hiatus until 2010 there’s no reason to slack off on maintenance and cleaning of your local DHARMA Initiative station. At The Hut we’re running low on some DHARMA Initiative cleaning supplies, but fortunately we still have an ample supply of DI Disinfectant Spray. It’s great […]

Not iPhone 3G S-related…

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009 by calixton

…just the opening of another Apple Store. This past weekend, prior to the WWDC iPhone 3G S announcement, Miss T and I heard that an Apple Store would be opening at the mall—excuse me, at the Westfield Galleria—in Roseville. Since I’m a sucker for free coffee and Apple T-shirts, we got up a bit earlier […]

Partly cloudy…

Saturday, June 6th, 2009 by calixton

…over Central Valley. Don’t know what types of clouds these were (from yesterday), but they reminded Miss T and I of the clouds in Partly Cloudy (the animated short that ran before Up). A few more cloud photos at 5 Partly Cloudy photos at maxpixpix on Picasa.

When life gives you Lost lemons…

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009 by calixton

…make Lost lemonade. Even though Lost is on summer (and fall, and part of winter) break, DHARMA Initiative materiel keeps coming. It’s probably because the last time I entered 2-4 in the computer for a supply drop, it seemed like it wasn’t going through, so I kept entering it. This week’s drop included, for the […]

(Mostly) food photos…

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009 by calixton

…from Monterey Bay. 15 More Monterey Bay photos on Picasa from our recent Central Coast trip. Marvel at pictures of the meals we ate and the Clement Monterey. It’s nice being on vacation.

All plants…

Monday, June 1st, 2009 by calixton

…no people. The Saturday morning Davis Farmers Market takes place all year ’round, but from May to October it really comes alive. With the sunny, mild, morning weather, attendance triples and the population of multi-child strollers increases eight-fold. Yet, despite the hundreds of market-goers, somehow all my photos end up peopleless. You can see for […]
