Pancakes for dinner. Bachelor living.

Pancakes for dinner. Bachelor living.

Pancake Tuesday, a tradition that most of the English-speaking world abides by but somehow evaded Yankee culture for these many centuries. I guess we were to distracted by Mardi Gras, which is generally borrowed from Catholic cultures, whereas Britain's Protestant ideals are less shimmery by comparison.

I'll take my PhD now.

New Camera and Dinner with Mike

As a sort of an after-Christmas gift to myself, I fought the crowds and B&H photo and bought myself a new camera. The Canon Digital Elph SD780 IS is the fourth in the Elph series I’ve owned since 2000, and they’ve served me well. This one is smaller than the others. So naturally, I went around and took a bunch of stupid photos of nothing.

And then Mike and I went to Chili’s on the coldest day in a long long time.

Curry Night with the Rugby Team

Not to play or to practice, on this occasion the men of the New York Rugby Club assembled to eat Indian food and toast to our friend Nick Baker who is leaving New York after a number of years with the club. Adieu. And also to welcome the Australian lads, Darcy, Mick, and Walt, who will be here for the Fall. Welcome.

I guess the dubious highlight of the night was AJ vomiting into two water glasses before dinner was even served, and then stashing said glasses on a counter behind us, rather than disposing of them in the toilet. Class.

Dinner and Karaoke for my 28th

Once a year, I can harang my old friends into venturing east of the Hudson for an evening out in New York. This year, we headed to dinner at Havana NY before descending on Chorus for Karaoke shenanigans. Good clean fun.

The occasion was my 28th birthday, which technically doesn’t pass until Wednesday the 6th. We missed an organised shindig last year, so it was double-pleasant to see the old gang on my birthday. Thanks for coming out.

This was also the first time that I used Facebook to organise the event. I received something like 18 “maybe” replies, as well as 4 or 5 “yes” replies from people who didn’t show. So in the end I could have just made individual phone calls to all the people I would have expected to come. Shows you who your true friends are, I suppose. Next year, maybe I’ll use Mixergy.com or some other invitation service.

Many photos and videos, so make sure you check out the whole post.

Dinner and Dancing

Out to dinner in the East Village with Keith and Chemda and company for a bit of dinner and some fun afterwards. We previewed Keith and Chemda’s new DVD and had a good laugh about how terrible the pilot episode of Aquaman was.

Of course the dinner was much funner than the afterwards dancing because who likes to be crammed into crowded bar with loud music and young people spilling drinks everywhere?

Still, makes for fun photography, for a little while.
