On Friday, I joined nine other people from the department in the Graduate Student Kickball Tournament. We came in second, losing by one run to the Government Politics team. Prior to that, we trounced the Physics team (each game was only thirty minutes long, and our first inning got capped at ten runs to allow the other team a chance to kick), and had a huge comeback against the Drama team. Unfortunately, this performance left several of us with injuries and almost unable to walk off the field. (A great game of darts at McGuinty’s and a Guinness float at the Quarry House set me right after the game, though.)

Returning from Paris

So I’m back from Paris. When I uploaded a picture of my luggage to Flickr yesterday and wrote, “Coming back with more than i left with”, I guess it meant more than I thought.

Shooting in Boston

I spent all day Saturday in Boston shooting photos with Matt. I rented a Nikon PC 85mm lens for the weekend and we played around with it all around town. We had more than just the tilt/shift lens, though.

The Wedding

Posted on December 10th, 2006 05:20 PMPings (0)

I’m on my way home after spending the weekend in LA for Lauren and Michal’s wedding. Unfortunately, because I was in the wedding party, I don’t have any photos of the ceremony, and have only a few of the reception. I do have some nice ones from before the ceremony, though. This next week is going to be incredibly hectic, but I’ll try to get some of them online soon.

Matt, Simon, Katia and I went to Sunset in Boston this past weekend where we had yards of beer. After years of talking about it, I finally had a yard of Guinness.

Extreme Beer, 2006

Posted on February 13th, 2006 04:53 PMPings (0)

On Saturday Ben, Kat and I went to Beer Advocate’s 3rd Annual Extreme Beer Fest. I think I agree with Ben that this year’s festival wasn’t nearly as creative as last year’s. There was a lot of similarity in the offerings, and the beer overall didn’t seem so much “extreme” as simply “strong”.

New England Beer

Posted on October 30th, 2005 11:33 PMPings (0)

Kat and I went to the New England Beer Festival yesterday and it was a lot of fun. I think that overall the Belgian and Extreme Beer Festivals had better themes, with potential for better beers, yet the quality of the New England beers was high and consistent.

All the Wheaton crew was back together this weekend, meeting in Freedom, Maine for Greg and Laura’s wedding. The weather was pretty damp and cold, but the rain mostly held off for the wedding, the reception was under a large tent nicely erected atop several birch trees, and a great bonfire warmed everyone up later on in the night.
