Was over at PieCon, the greatest little pie-eating and gaming “convention” on the Central Coast, today. One of the great traditions is Emir’s lumpia, which are fried spring rolls. Even though they aren’t pie, it’s probably for the best, since it’s ill-advised to live on pie alone for an entire weekend.

Welcome to Night Vale is a pretty entertaining podcast, if you like weird, vaguely creepy and surreal radio shows.

Was out for an evening photowalk and having a hard time figuring out what to take a picture of, when I heard a “meow” and saw the movement of this friendly feline as it approached a rock in the yard I was near. I knelt down and proceeded to take some shots and it stayed put the entire time, except for one moment where I moved a bit too much and it got a bit skittish.

When I was done and got up to leave, it calmly walked away. Clearly, we had an unspoken, mutally beneficial arrangement: I got a photo subject, and it got some attention, but from a safe distance.

Today was wine club pickup day at Edna Valley Vineyard. They always have a nice event with tasting, appetizers, and live music, and it sure was a gorgeous day for it!

I had a wine tasting gathering with friends tonight, and since it was Pi day (March 14th, a.k.a. 3.14, a.k.a. Pi) we all brought Pie themed food. Mine was a dessert pizza pie, which consisted of a sugar cookie crust, a sauce made of cream cheese, amaretto, and brown sugar, and toppings of fresh fruit.

It was delicious! Along with everything else. And thanks to Amy for arranging the toppings – it was a great presentation!

I gotta confess: the lights and performance monitor display on my keyboard makes me feel like my system is something right out of science fiction. Like I’m piloting the Enterprise or something ;-)
