Random moments August 2014

Memories from the past two months.
About to board the ferry for camping on Angel Island!

This camping spot is only a 30-minute ferry ride away from San Francisco!  

Partying with Orkut.  It was a happy and well-mannered evening.

Ate this cool Greek yogurt!  It comes with pomegranate and dates.

The making of kale pies.

The finished result.  When I texted the photo of the kale pies to Azer, he said "Who is eating the extra one?  I land at SFO in 20 minutes."

Visiting my dear friend Sveo, who has this indoor basketball court in his house. Originally when our mutual friend Jack and I saw the blueprints 3 years ago, we were both skeptical.  But after we played badminton, basketball, and did somersaults, we bowed to Sveo's foresight in installing this.

If you are envious, restrain yourself.  Don't hate!  Hateful comments will be deleted.

Once you've been a witch, it is easy to become a witch again.  I dressed up for a Castro Theatre show.

Orkut himself!

Why didn't you delete those hateful racist comments about Asians and Indians?

Niniane said...

I delete comments that are trolls. By the way, Orkut is Turkish.

Wow that's a nice basketball court. Let me guess Sveo sold a start up. There's no way you can have a basketball court like that working for the man.....

Niniane said...

Nope, Sveo got it "working for the man". He just worked for a particular man, and did world-changing work, and at a good time.

Good for Sveo! Sveo's house is in bay area? Which "man" did he work for? Guessing it's google or facebook, pre IPO?

Niniane said...

Sveo's house is in the Bay Area, yes. It was one of those companies, yes. :)

What makes you think people will be envious of this Sveo?

That's the same shirt from your solo camping post:) Forget about your readers, were you and Jack feeling envious in Sveo's house?

Niniane said...

That is my preferred camping shirt. I also wore that shirt to hike Half Dome two years ago.

Jack is a very nice person, and unlikely to be envious. I was not envious because Sveo is a dear friend. If I hated the owner of the house, then perhaps I'd be envious, but then I wouldn't be in his house in the first place.

I said to restrain yourselves from making hateful comments. Please do so.

How's your friend's hoops skills? It would be such a waste if didn't have much game.

Please post a video of your somersault next time.

This is anonymous 11:30am from 9/6 again. Forgot to ask if Sveo is still working for the man or retired/semi-retired? Also, what's with multiple deleted comments? That many haters already?

Niniane said...

I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that all the deleted comments are from one person.

Angel Island seems tame compared to your other solo camping adventures :-) Fun to relax... Take care
