I am Jack’s lack of blog updates

I moved to a new apartment ~

pros:

2x storage space
proper insulation
upscale neighborhood (international supermarket)
commute time cut in half
fiber optic internet
usable kitchen
ass-washing toilet
push-button bath with fill bath and reheat buttons
air con in the bathroom
giant mirror

cons:
3x the rent
weird layout
upscale neighborhood (everything is expensive)

Fuji-Q

Right next to Mt.Fuji, and full of crazy rollercoasters.

3.5 hours waiting in line for 2 minutes of THIS:

You just never know when you’re going to go forward or backward or upside-down. Guinness record holder in the top number of flips. FFFFFFfffffffffffffffff.

Not my video, and it doesn’t really do it justice, but anyway:

Kawaguchiko is still a really nice touristy spot.

Also, so cute :3

tv

randomly and serendipitiously caught an episode of Big Bang Theory on CBS while in the US, and it left a unique enough impression that I started watching the rest of it now that I’m back home. Really liking it so far.

Also on the to-watch list is the entire series of Lost. Yes, I’m that far behind the times.

mini-recap of the rest of July: freedom trail, fireworks, a Hammond organ, tall ships, Cape Cod, sailing, driving, a horrible 16-hour flying marathon, jetlag, drinking, beaches, more fireworks, and a whole lot of youtube. (beta testing the new mobile website for touch-screen phones! m.youtube.com on iphone/android/pre! zomg)

also, for the obligatory impulse purchase de month, bought a Keyboard Cat t-shirt:

in popular culture

Daily Show staff at presidential events are consistently awesome, for example, Colbert back in the W days.

Shoutout to YT at 6:20!

18 Jun

Highway 1 is the best highway

Saturday: Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz

crab

Seafood restaurant near the marina. Eating crab is a lot of work for not so much food, but it’s pretty good. Also the spicy fried calamari was awesome.

sc

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is an old-fashioned amusement park. They had fireworks to celebrate the anniversary of their rollercoaster from 1924.

Sunday: Golden Gate Bridge to Point Reyes National Seashore

hw1

Highway 1 winds along the California coast: the Pacific to the left and giant rolling hills to the right. Two lanes, hilly with sharp curves, no passing, no items, Fox only, Final Destination.

sunset

Muir beach. John Muir is da man.

Not pictured: old-growth redwood forest in Muir Woods, Point Reyes seashore, the San Andreas fault etc.

GPS is the best thing since wide-slot toasters that can fit bagels.

10 Jun

stuff

checked out the Haight: full of junkie panhandlers asking for “food, money or pot”

Japantown: tried to order in Japanese, turns out the waitress was Chinese and only knew Welcome and Thank you

found that a $1.50 bus ticket is good all day long because nobody checks the expiry time

Saw Monty Python’s Spamalot. It’s delightfully silly!

Went to Yosemite. Amazing rocks and trees.

Glacier Point view

cold but fun…

Bridge

– biked across the Golden Gate bridge

– had seafood and Napa wine with a view of the bay and the city

– took a ferry back to Fisherman’s Wharf

– cable car ride back to Market, hanging on to the side

24 May

in the bay area

Ok so I’m a dumbass and forgot to read up on the weather, and assumed it was going to be all sunny and warm, and I only packed “summer clothes”. Well it’s frickin’ freezing.

It turns out that SF and the surrounding areas are really really chilly. Also apparently it has microclimates according to wikipedia, which is a fancy way of saying that some parts of the city are slightly less chilly than others. Ok.

San Bruno so far feels like the run-of-the-mill suburban strip mall experience that I mostly only saw on TV for the last few years.

Will head to SF tomorrow.
