Life, travels, bookmarks and blogging

Ah, a spate of life on the blog. Nice to see you, too.

Lots going on here. More on that soon, but first… recent trips.

We just returned from New Haven, where my one of most long-time friends got married. The weekend was slightly chaotic, and a whole lot of fun. It was great to hang out with Don’s party-hardy college crowd, and wonderful to see many of my closest high school friends. And most heart-warming, of course, was helping Don and Kristie celebrate their love for each other. A few pictures…

The previous weekend, my colleague Sebastian and I went snowboarding at Bellayre, close to Andes, where Jeanhee and I had a big party last August. It was my first time out this season, and I had nearly forgotten how much I love that feeling of gliding, the thrill I get out of getting some air and sticking the landing. A bump and some extra speed, wind on your face and adrenaline in your veins. If only we got some good action pictures…. We’ll have to settle for mostly posed shots.

I created a account, and am going to start keeping new bookmarks there. I don’t know too much about what’s possible yet, but it seems like a simple, useful, tool. Here’s a link to my bookmarks.

Finally, I’ve been mulling over a blogging dilemna. Some of things I’m most interested in lately are specific to work, especially around C# and opensource tools for .NET. Do I want to post that stuff here? If not here, where? Maybe it’s time to branch out into some post categorization. Maybe I should just post everything here and let you sort out what you give a crap about. Maybe I should get one of those slow ASP.NET-based blogs…. I’m leaning towards posting everything here. I strive for a holistic approach to work and life, so that seems to make sense. If you have two cents, feel free to drop it in.
