Earlier this week I was driving to work lisening to the radio. This was the traffic report:
Wow, I really don’t live in LA anymore.
No major accidents or problems to report. Just the normal slight delays from the morning commute. Back to you ..
Law, computers, random stuff.
No cable and no over the air signal, I was forced to watch the final Laker game on a random online stream. The stream was delayed from the live broadcast by a few seconds. The yelling from my neighbors told me if I was about to watch a good or bad play. It was like waiting for a storm (but in reverse) … I would hear yelling, count four seconds and watch the play the caused the commotion. It did ruin the suspense a little.
Oh yeah, I guess I’m still alive internet …
Greetings from Washington D.C! I have been wanting to back to the east coast since the last time that I was there. Last week, my friend Stephanie and I decided to take a last minute trip to DC and NYC.
We left from LAX on Monday at 6am and arrivde in DC around 5pm. It took us forever to find our hotel, mainly because I ended up leading us in the wrong direction. As a result we had to cross this long, steep bridge. Eventually we got into our room and managed to leave for downtown. We went to see the Whitehouse. Later we walked to this wonderful Indian restaurant (which I was way underdressed for) and had some amazing and food and awesome mojitos (so random, I know). We then proceeded to walk to the Washington memorial and had this wonderful view of the capital city. On one side was the White House, on other side was Capitol Hill, and on the other the Lincoln Memorial. We got back to our room around midnight.This morning we woke up at 6am and got on a bus to NYC. Which brings me to the title of this post: I have wifi on the bus! how cool is that!? I almost paid $10 for an in-flight wifi connection yesterday just so that I could say that I did it. For a 1.5 hr flight it was really not worth it. Anyways, I need to do a bit of work now.
The first season of Heroes was simply amazing. It was like seeing a comic book come to life. The second season was OK. Season 3 just sucks. I really can’t put my finger on it, but watching each episode feels like a shore. I want to know what happens to the characters just because I am so invested, but I really don’t want to watch the crappy story lines. I have at least three episodes that I have to endure on my Hulu queue.
On the other hand, Chuck has proven to be exciting and capable of capturing my attention. Each week this is the first thing that I watch off my queue.
For Valentine's Becky, being a geologist, gave me a mineral with my name. The mineral was named after Benjamin Franklin and the borough of Franklin, NJ (also named after him).
The mineral is a black colored substance, usually found with glow in the dark willemite and calcite (willemite – green; calcite – red). It has a chemical formula of Zn(2+)Fe2(3+)O4. Discovered in 1819, diamagnetic, with an isometric cristallline structure (m3m (4/m 3 2/m) - Hexoctahedral), and a cell volume of V 603.35 Å³.
