Thanks to my friend Linda Vu's recommendation, I recently bought a pocket microscope from the Exploratorium's store. It was not very expensive, and it actually is a lot of fun to use. There is something very satisfying about actually seeing the warp and woof of the thread in your shirt, or the individual grains of dirt and rock in a clump of soil. Maybe I will change my vice from Facebook to simply looking at things closely.

Timex Ironman

Another good aspect of training for a 5K run is that I get to buy a watch! I just bought a Timex Ironman 10-Lap, and am excited.

Rods and Mods

The Exploratorium is hosting an event in February of 2010 that will showcase hot-rodded computers and modified computers cases. It should be a fantastic event: I am especially hoping to see a steampunk computer in the mix.

(The image to the left shows a computer created by Jake Von Slatt. Wow.)

GRE is Done!

I took the GRE on Monday, so it is done! To celebrate, I had bacon waffles at It's Tops, a diner in San Francisco. So good...

After the GRE...

I may have to celebrate by getting a new fountain pen. Lamy Studio, here I come!
