weekendy things February 24th, 2014

We had a pretty low key weekend that consisted of enjoying the warm-ish weather, doing things around the house, watching House of Cards season 2, a speaking engagement, a hike, and eating lots of Indian food on both Friday and Saturday night (it makes the baby kick around A LOT). Just the way I like it!

   

On Saturday night I gave a Pecha Kucha talk at Hierarchy DC about my 3D rendering work. It was a pretty inspiring night with a range of topics and speakers – and the 20 slides/20-seconds-per-slide format is pretty awesome in that it keeps things moving along quickly. That said, I’m glad it’s over, as public speaking events always stress me out a bit.

   

On Sunday we took Bowser dog for a stroll in Fort Dupont Park. We were the only people out there. Surprising for the 60 degree weather… He does love a good tromp through the woods, as do we.

Bowser is pretty serious about relaxing, especially once he is snuggled in his blanket cocoon for doggie nap time. Some days, no amount of coaxing will bring him out, even his entire toy collection lined up under his nose.

tweed ride 2011 November 14th, 2011




tweed ride, originally uploaded by machinedance.

   

Yesterday was the DC Tweed Ride, which we participated in again this year — this time with Bowser in tow! He was pretty popular with the crowd. I was busy filming the entire time for a short movie I put together for Bicycle Space (video coming soon!) so Matt took the little guy, in his orange coat, around for most of the ride. Don’t worry guys, he was strapped in to the box to assure there were no accidents. I hardly took any pictures at all, so I didn’t think that machinedance would mind if I posted this shot of the two dapper looking gentlemen that I love so much.

Great Falls November 9th, 2009

Great Falls

  

Great Falls

   

Yesterday was a gorgeous, warm November day that felt like it was somehow leftover from the first week of September. I went hiking out at Great Falls (on the Virginia side) along with my friends Riles and Alison, as well as Bowser and Alison’s dog Winston. There was lots of tromping through the woods, into leaves and puddles, as well as plenty of homemade trail mix and Riles’ backpack (very important for carrying the trail mix). Bowser and his little legs did surprisingly well, walk-running the entire hike and still not being tired at then end of it.

   

It always amazes me that, even while living in the city, it only takes a 30 minute drive and a quick walk to be in the middle of nature, and what feels like the middle of nowhere.

Welcome

So, we felt we didn’t have quite enough life-changing decisions going on lately (grad school, engagement) and decided to add another this weekend. New puppy! Meet Bowser. He’s an 8-week old Boston Terrier who enjoys long naps and trying to jump over things 5-times taller than he is. So far, he’s been a pretty big handful since he is so tiny. But we got him to wear a little cat-collar (the only thing that was small enough) with a bell on it — makes him a little easier to keep track of. Today is his first day spending time alone, so hopefully the kitchen is in one piece when we get home from work today!

pollys want crackers September 24th, 2008

Parrots

   
A lady that lives near Kalorama Park has these two parrots. She lets them perch outside while she is gardening her little spot there, and we’ve walked past them a few times on our way back from getting breakfast sandwiches. I’m not kidding when I say that, one time, we heard someone on the nearby basketball court screaming obscenities at the birds to be quiet. The weird part is that we didn’t even hear them making any noise! crazy birds!!

Tiki the Attack Dog January 15th, 2008


Tiki Dog

Matt took this photo of his sister’s dog, Tiki, using an Oktomat Lomo camera. It takes 8 successive shots over a period of about 2 seconds. I’m actually surprised that there is even a part of Tiki in every frame knowing how rambunctious of a dog she is.
