Pumpkin Carving and Strelka

Current music: Ben Folds Five - Naked Baby Photos

This evening I got together with Jaime, Cindy, and Adam for some pumpkin carving and rum-spiked chocolate milkshakes. We ended up a Christmas Lobster pumpkin and an Aquarium pumpkin:

Afterwards, Paul showed up to hit Sputnik with Stacia for dinner. I went down there with them, but it was packer with Hallo-wieners partying it up. We ended up at the Strelka window:

Even ran into the Judge version of Neil Patrick Harris:

Velo Swap!

Saturday was Velo Swap. I have never seen anything like it in my life. 60,000 sq. ft. of bikes! I ended up with a new fixed gear road bike and a bunch of random parts. I have been riding the thing non-stop. I never knew riding a fixed gear would be so much fun.

More pics...

So, last weekend was the Zombie Crawl. This weekend was the Pillow Fight! Not sure how well it is remembered, but last year was the pillow fight at Bayaud and Broadway. This year it was at 15th & Larimer in downtown Denver.

Denver Skyline Project (part 2)

I started part 2 last night very similarly to the way I started part 1, but it was colder this time. I tried to get my sunrise shot this morning, but missed the opportunity by about 10 minutes. Here is the first one...

Far, far away

Last night I drove to Duxbury, MA to get a frappe at Farfar's as was suggested to me by a native of the area. However, I got there just after they closed. Quaint little town. Beautiful homes.

On my way to Boston

Yesterday Koura and I made it out for her first mountain bike adventure ever and only my second of the season since I just got my bike back recently. We went to a section of the Colorado Trail along the South Platte and just west of Waterton Canyon. I have riden this trail before so it was a good one to bring Koura on since I knew it wouldn't have any unexpected problems for her.

After mountain biking I hung out at home for a while then went over to Sputnik for Triviatron 3000. Our team won for the 3rd time in the past 4 weeks. Cool that Jaime joined up this week.

Today I am sitting in the Denver airport waiting for my plane to Boston. I have to go there to help with testing of my software.
