Hawaii…

…(vacation pictures). Photos from a trip to Hawaii—Oahu, Maui, and The Big Island (Hawaii)—from last November. ^ From behind Matsumoto’s Shave Ice in Haleiwa, cats lazing in the mid-80 degree, November heat. ^ At the Papawai Scenic Lookout along Maui’s Highway 30 you can see Maui’s southeast coastline, the volcanic remains of Molokini, and Lanai.

Eat more chicken…

Thursday, October 28th, 2010 by calixton

…and more chicken parts. Miss T and I had been wanting to try out Ippuku, a new izakaya in Berkeley, ever since we saw the construction signs go up for it. Earlier this month we had a chance to try it out. An izakaya is a Japanese eatery akin to a pub or tapas bar. […]

San Diego and…

…Comic-Con. Once again, Miss T and I headed SoCalward to brave the (not-so-)costumed crowds at San Diego Comic-Con International. For 2010 we only bought tickets for Thursday—which really wasn’t enough time to take in the sights—though Miss T finagled her way back in on Sunday for the end of the show. For our single-day excursion […]

Objects in motion…

…at Downtown Berkeley BART. “Stairs” that move on their own. A Fremont-bound train. A Richmond-bound train. Lastly, another woman on the stairs (she’s heading down). As usual, larger pix are at maxpixpix on Picasa.

A little street work…

…in front the building this week. The noise and vibration took quite a toll on several of my coworkers this week. (Hopefully the hole will be filled in next week.)

A short walk…

Friday, April 2nd, 2010 by calixton

…on a long pier. In mid-March, when the Bay Area’s weather briefly turned summerlike—it has since returned to late-winter temps—Miss T and I visited Pier 14 along San Francisco’s Embarcadero. Rather than bore you with the recent history of the refurbished Pier 14, let me bore you with 9 more Pier 14 photos: As usual, […]

Last Saturday…

…Miss T and I shared a rare roast beef sandwich at Il Cane Rosso. Later, we headed over to Macworld 2010—sans Apple Inc. but still worth a look-see. Possibly the most spartan trade show booth I have ever seen. Microsoft Office, uh, icons were on hand. I might have been able to get a better […]

Sushi recently eaten…

…in Sacramento. Chef’s sushi mix (above) and a River Cat roll (below) from Miso Japanese Cuisine. Mmm… sushi.

Two days in the valley…

Monday, November 30th, 2009 by calixton

…of Yosemite National Park. Earlier this month Miss T and I took our first trip to Yosemite National Park. Of the nearly 1200 square miles of the park, we spent our 2 days exploring the 7 square miles of Yosemite Valley. We could probably have spent 2 months in Yosemite Valley alone. As expected, we […]
