So, I know I have been terrible about keeping up with this blog. SOmehow at the beginning of the month, I kinda lost interest in updating. I guess it was partially running out of ideas and partially cause we are about to signing off on our milestone and I was super busy for a couple of weeks. But now I am back!! (althoug I think I am having a cold)
Now I am sure you have all heard of our new full body motion sensing camera Xbox Kinect. It is about to come out later this year. They did a whole bunch of launch title demos for it at E3 this month. Alot of the games are basically XBox versions of the WII sports, fitness and other stuff. However, there is ONE game, that is going to totally blow everybody away! It is going to make us millions and completely change the way games are played! Yes, I am talking about Harmonix's Dance Central. Think DDR but with full body detection!
I was already interested when I saw it at E3. Then yesterday at our weekly mixer, we got the demo in person and it was super fun. At the end of the meeting, we had basically 20 people all dancing at the same time, having a great time! This is going to be the awesomest game ever and totally need to be at the next Veggie Out!!
:) ps. I will try to start up 365 pics again.

This is a Tesla, a full electric motor in a body of a Lotus Elise. This one belongs to Ninja's Manager. I've also seen a red one around the garage but couldn't find it today. I have decided this is my dream car! I just have to fork out 120k for one of these babies..
Yes, I know I am extremely wayy behind -_-. It is just a temporary setback. I will catch up again!
My college friend came to visit Snoopy and me this past weekend. We took them to Elliot's Oyster House by the water. They had delicious delicious oysters!

I got lazy again and am behind on posting pics. This is my post 99. We got Alan Wake today, I can't wait to play this. Suppose to be a super scary game. Well by playing, I mean Ninja will play and I will watch under the blanket.
Man, I have to think of something good for post 100!

I live in a kind of a open room with 4 cubicles. Since we kind of face the entrance to the stairs we are always in a constant battle to redirect traffic so people don't use our cube as a shortcut hallway. We had the whiteboards up for a while, and today we moved this giant ikea cabinet to the otherside. Lets see if it will help. As you can see behind the cabinet, the cube room next to us had doors installed. bastards!
We stopped by the UW street fair this weekend. It was a really gorgeous day for some walking outside. For lunch we decided to eat at Thai Tom, one of the best Thai restaurant in town. Much better than the fair foods. This place is a hole in a wall in the U district. Above is the picture of lone chef cooking at his station. The food was delicious!

As an appropriate conclusion to the last bunch of food posts. We decided to have vegetarian night to compensate for all the crazy eating out. Eating out really doesn't give you enough veggies, especially American food. Here we have stirfried pea vine, stirfried bok choy and spicy cabbage which I made for the first time. It turned out alright, but I put in too much hot chili pepper and not enough vinegar. Better luck next time.
continuing the food theme. Went to I Love Sushi (not the one by the lake) for lunch the other day. They have a lunch special bento for 12.95 and it is amazing. In this box you see, there is seared albacore sashimi, a maguro tuna/salmon sashimi salad, tempura with 3 shrimp in it, a piece of teriyaki salmon, a piece of tamago, some spinach, and 2 giant unagi roll, plus Miso soup, salad and a bowl of rice. -_-.

Another sake. This one is a Ginmai, it is extremely good. Ninja says he asked the wine dude for a sake that was as smooth as the Kikusui (extremely smooth and light) but with more bold flavor. The wine dude recommended this. it is pretty tasty for sure, mostly cause i can't taste the alcohol very much haha.
Some more additions to the sake theme. This one is also a Nigori(cloudy and sweet). I think I picked it because the bottle looks cute. The sake is just ok. It is indeed very sweet but also kinda burns going down, not very smooth. Also the rice flavor is very strong.

The George Washington Masonic Memorial. Built by the Freemasons. This place was really off the beaten path. We drove by this place while on the way out of old town Alexandria and decided to check it out. It was actually very interesting, full of artifacts and information about the masons.
Today was the official end of service for the original Xbox live. Also, tax day! Our building held a huge party to honor both events. Look at the top right corner for the gigantic cake. It was half chocolate, half normal with black frosting that turned everyone's lips and tongues black. -_-

Washington's Skagit Valley is famous for having the largest tulip farms in the country. They supply tulips even internationally, (to Holland?). Every year around this time, the tulips will be blooming for about 2 weeks before the farmers cut them down to sell them. So people come from all over to see the giant fields of tulips. We made a trip this Saturday as it was very nice weather. I thought this pic was appropriate haha.

After using my crappy "came with the house" showerhead for like 5 years I finally upgraded to this awesome one. I saw it at Bed, Bath and Beyond, and it is called "Rainfall" and only has 1 setting: pouring rain. This is just what i wanted, a straight downpour of hot water, not a single droplet going to waste. It was very awesome!
