Earlier in the week I found this little guy on the sidewalk. Left my shoe in the frame for scale.
Took this photo the other day, but didn’t edit until just now. Trying to get back to more (or less) regular photo posts…
Went outside to see the very last remnants of sunset time. I hadn’t gone out to take a sunset photo in a long while. Forgot how most of the view is obscured by so many things like trees, fences, and other buildings. Lamesauce. But at least I was able to see a little bit of pink peeking through.
Pixel in the afternoon sunlight.
Baked spicy chicken bao from last night’s Movable Feast event in San Jose. After having my blackened chicken poboy from a different food truck, I was too full to have this bao from the Chairman Bao truck. But it makes for a tasty lunch!
Here’s the last of my half of the donuts from the first batch we ever
bought from Psycho Donuts in Campbell, CA.
It’s a raised donut (I think that’s what they’re called…?) with key
lime pie-flavored icing. It was good, but it’s my least favorite of
the three. But that’s mainly because I now seem to prefer cake donuts
to raised donuts. It was a fairly large donut, too. I probably
could’ve just eaten half, but then the other half would’ve gotten too
stale and ended up in the garbage. No wasting here!
Anyway, I think we successfully found a donut shop where we would want
to be repeat customers. The challenge now is to limit how often we
visit, both for our health and our budget. Psycho Donuts is on the
pricier side, but I can say without question they’re worth the price.
(No, I didn’t have a Sierra Nevada Celebration ale with the donut —
ewww! — I just used the box as a contrasting background.
I forgot to take a photo of the donut before I took a bite. Oops!
I posted previously about going to Psycho Donuts
Campbell, CA. This is my 2nd out of 3 donuts I picked out (we bought a
half-dozen) — the so-called “Drunkin’ Punkin”.
According to Psycho Donuts’ own blog here’s the description:
“The Drunkin’ Punkin’ is a Chef Ron masterpiece; his own Plymouth
Rock. We start with a bourbon-spiked pumpkin cake donut. Seriously. We
top it with cheesecake icing, fresh pecans, and a cross-hatch of maple
and caramel drizzle. If the pilgrims knew of this donutrocity, they
may have landed in Santa Cruz rather than Plymouth Rock.”
It was a damn tasty donut!
Last night I had a hankering for donuts and was able to track down a
donut shop that was open until 9 PM, Psycho Donuts. They have a lot of
quirky donut flavors, like this raspberry one. I forgot its quirky
name, unfortunately. But it was quite tasty! We were worried that the
donuts would be kind of crappy since we got to the place fairly close
to closing time. But no, my raspberry donut tasted fresh and yummy. I
have a key lime pie donut and another one with some kind of white
frosting, caramel drizzle, and pecans waiting for me.
Silly kitties were so focused on watching the birds that they didn't notice me behind them taking photos.
Been perusing everyday-carry.com, drooling over people's gear, and decided to post what my basic everyday carry items are.
I usually carry a bag with more items than this, like gum, hand sanitizer, a packet of tissues or loose napkins, Advil/Excedrin, more pens, a camera (with or without an extra lens) and whatever gadgets I'm into at the moment. Recently I've been using this non-descript Eddie Bauer mini-backpack that can carry a hugely surprising amount of stuff given its apparent size, or this simple Coach purse that my parents gave me for my birthday this year (which can hold my Galaxy Tab 7, but not any other larger tablets).
However, as I usually feel during the summer, for some reason, I sometimes want to ditch the bag and just carry the essentials in my pockets. When that happens, I just carry my wallet (a minimalist plastic wallet by jimi), my keychain (with a Leatherman Micra, iPhone 4 SIM door tool, and Inka ballpoint pen in addition to keys), and my phone. This time it's the iPhone 4 in the Exogear external battery case, usually not necessary, but when I take many photos, do lots of photo editing on the phone, or use GPS tracking like I have been more recently on walks, it runs the battery down faster than normal. Turning on the external battery is more convenient than rustling up a charger cable. Other days I might use a Pre 2 or an ATRIX 4G, hence the iPhone SIM door tool at the ready on my keychain.
Show me what your everyday carry items are!
Just playing around with Vignette on the ATRIX 4G.
Wish I had my cats’ carefree life.
