Lots of earthquakes reported in Yorba Linda these past 24 hrs, including 2 magnitude 4.5 earthquakes. (Too bad +Shing Wong  and +Ellen Rissman-Wong are in London and missed all the fun!)

Couldn't even feel them out here in Pasadena though. Or at least, couldn't feel them strongly enough to recognize them as earthquakes.

(You know you're from California when.... "Oh, there was an earthquake? I didn't even notice.")

So true!

Although, I used a 2 hamper system: 1 for dirty clothes, 1 for clean clothes.  It kept the clothes nicely contained so I had more room to toss all my other crap on the floor.

(+Veronica Anderson , +Liz Fong-Jones , and Andrea Dubin can all probably attest to this.)

I rarely bother trying to match anything either, as my wardrobe is black, black and more black. No need to bother thinking about what I'm going to wear, just put on the shirt and pants that I grab first.

Somebody failed geography class. (Italy, India, they both start with I, right?)

I may be a vehement opponent of pastries as headwear, but towels folded up to look like cakes will never stop being adorable.

Hallo! just wanted to say that I've been playing a lot of Below the past couple days after not playing for a long time and I'd forgotten how fun (and nail-bitingly tense) the game was. 

(My friar that I'd had sitting around since the prototype got killed off today, and I restarted with the Smith's Daughter. I've been liking her a lot more, but that mostly has to do with her abilities matching being a better fit for my play style.)

One thing that's been bugging me:

It seems really counter-intuitive for the game to clear all your campsites when completing a quest and starting another with the same character. I was doing the Ymma quest, and I went back up to the surface to finish the quest and send her back home before trying to find the saint's bones (the quest that killed my friar). When I chose the new quest it deleted all the waypoints on my map. I was sort of like 'Really? I was just in this place five minutes ago, did I really forget my campsites that quickly?' (I am oddly less bothered by the reset of Gear/Treasure/Secrets, though I find that kind of annoying too.)

I suppose I could always be Doing It Wrong (in which case, please enlighten me), but as it stands it feels very jarring from a player/character viewpoint.

I wouldn't mind losing campsites if I went to a different dungeon and came back.

I think it's mostly bugs me when I do the same dungeon twice in a row and have to re-find things. That violates some kind of -- I don't know, implied continuity, I guess -- that isn't as strong if you go to another place and come back.

So by the end it took (at least) 5 hours more than what was scheduled... I guess even space shuttles can't escape the LA traffic. ;)

(Although to be correct, it wasn't traffic that was the issue--rather, the delays were because they had to keep stopping because clearance was so tight in some areas they had to take out street signs and disconnect utility lines so they could fit it through!)

Spotted on Twitter. (Warning! Terrible puns ahead!)  #sobaditsgood  

Q: How did the hipster burn his tongue?
A: He sipped his coffee before it was cool.

Sunset from my plane window.

The light rays and the bokehs give a really interesting effect. Amazingly, I barely needed to edit this at all--the only thing I did was crop it a bit to improve the framing.

Coming back. It's much easier to take pictures of sunsets when flying westward.

Unfortunately, that place (Psycho Donuts in San Jose) is too far away for me to get one of their donuts today, but I think I ate enough donuts over Memorial Weekend while I was up there to make up for it.

I love the waiting room at LA's Union Station. It's so wonderfully Art Deco.
