The McCartney concert was pretty good. The first half he played all sorts of stuff from his solo career that wasn’t great, but he brought it in the end with the Beatles stuff. It’s always interesting to see old people rocking out.
After the concert we went to get food. The night before we discovered the Korean BBQ place I went to last time was closed and replaced with a sushi bar. What we didn’t notice then was that there was a new Korean BBQ place open next door. IBob and Teo took me there for my birthday.
Nothing better than your favorite food on your birthday.
Today I am 25. Being old sucks. At least in about an hour I’m going to head off to see Paul McCartney in concert at the MGM.
I’m taking photos, but I don’t have an SD card reader to upload the images, so they’ll have to wait till Monday.
Oh, and as of right now, I’m up 53 bucks! Okay, it’s not a fortune, but it’s better than being in the red.
They were out of oysters. At an oyster bar.
It’s okay though; the nice lady pouring drinks gave me a free cheesecake because it was my birthday, which was cool. The food is always good there anyway, so we had a good time. I made the $53 dollars playing blackjack while Teo was in line.
We stayed at the Stratosphere because I like the rides and it was cheap. Plus I like the Blackjack there, but have since discovered the rules at the Tropicana are a little more favorable.
Thanksgiving went pretty well. Major thanks to Kym who gave me ultra secret turkey tips.
In typical bachelor fashion, I had paper towels for napkins, so my mom made my little brother fold them into little squares. They were actually much easier to use like that, so I guess there was a point.
Waited 45 minutes for a table at Sam Woo. Totally not worth it.
Danny Silverman says any blog post that beings with “I know I haven’t updated in a while” is already in trouble, so I won’t do that.
I’ve had a lot of things I’ve wanted to put up here, but haven’t because of the high geek factor. I think I’m going to have to use the categories, and hide the geek stuff from the front page.
In order to force myself to produce content for this site, starting today I’m implementing a new policy. Every day I intend to upload an image taken that day of something and write a caption for it. This will solve the whole, “writing is hard” problem, and hopefully will result in a journal of sorts. Here’s the first one to start it off:
I spent some time yesterday integrating gallery into wordpress so people could browse my daily images in a format more conducive to image browsing, and to give me a better interface for uploading. The idea is to have entries automatically appear when things are uploaded to that album. I had this idea before, for photoblogging with my cell phone, but cell phone cameras are so pathetically optically challenged, that it’s just not satisfying to use them.
Yesterday I had a mini UFC party to watch the ppv. It was totally a bunch of pathetic fights, don’t pick up the second showing. I did manage to catch Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire on friday, and it was phenomenal. I really wish they’d keep Mike Newell on for the rest of the films.
