Month December 2005

Safety and Pixar at the MOMA

While in NY last week, I had the opportunity to visit the MOMA to check out their special exhibitions. Since I’d just done a full tour of the museum in August, I felt I didn’t need to see every Matisse, Pollock and blue/white/black/slashed canvas again. The first special exhibition I walked through was SAFE: Design […]

Merry Christmas!

Planes, A few trains, and certain automobiles

After last year’s travel excitement, I decided this year to not mess around with all that connecting flight garbage and just fly direct in and out of NY JFK airport, and visit my sister in the city. Aside from a minor delay (during which I got to enjoy drinks with Skyler as we crossed paths), […]

Christmas Cards

Every year my mother sends out Christmas* cards to family and friends. Not just any cards, but some of her very own handmade cards.

There are a bunch of other photos on Flickr from the store and the grand opening. Great decorations and hilarious writing throughout the store, and of […]

String-gle Bells

My First 911 Call

Last night, walking back to my car I witnessed a man leaning in through a broken passenger side window of an SUV. Another passerby shouted at him, “Hey! What do you think you’re doing!?” The man struggled his way out of the window, turned around and said something like, “Huh? This? This is my car, […]
