Olympics Photos

Edited: Friday, August 22

When I got back, everyone kept asking why I didn’t stay for the Olympics. My answer was “it’s better watching it on TV.” But now that I’ve seen these pictures, I guess being at the opening ceremonies wouldn’t have been too bad.

Just Launched: new Google Wake Up Kit!

Just found this in my Google Calendar:

Do you have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? We do, too. In fact this problem became so serious at times that it sometimes resulted in lacklustre attendance at team meetings. To help solve the problem we’ve created an innovative solution called the Google Wake Up Kit.

“I could never wake up on time to get to our team meetings. But thanks to the new Google Wake Up Kit, I’m always on time now!”
Pedro C.

In combination with the kit, you can receive a new type of notification from Google Calendar, called the “wake up” notification. This notification is relentless in ensuring your timely awakening from restful slumber.

The “wake up” notification uses several progressively more annoying alerts to wake you up. First it will send an SMS message to your phone. If that fails, more coercive means will be used. The kit includes an industrial-sized bucket and is designed to be connected to your water main for automatic filling. In addition, a bed-flipping device is included for forceful removal from your sleeping quarters. Learn more.

America’s Best Dance Crew

Update (Mar. 24):

Jon’s away message: if jabbawockeez don’t win this thursday, america is stupid.
Me: ooh, i agree with you about the jabbawockeez
Jon: HECK YEA!! did you vote?
Me:haha…aileen and i had to…
Jon: vote some more.

I’m gonna vote alot tonite also

I was hooked ever since I watched the first episode on board my Jet Blue flight to Boston. Now it’s down to the last 2 crews and the winner should be obvious, since Kaba Modern had to leave (What was America thinking?). Now it’s JabbaWockeeZ vs. Status Quo. How did Status Quo ever make it to the final two???? Unbelievable.

Aileen: Where’s my phone?
Me: Why?
Aileen: I need to text in my vote.

Go vote.

Cube (and dance) party

So I’m leaving at the end of June and won’t be back until the first week of August. My cube-mate and I share a calendar for our schedules. I’ll be gone for the entire month of July. Look what he put up:


Check out this guy’s demonstration of the evolution of dance. Good times.
