Earlier this afternoon, I drove down to the Piedmont Center for the Arts to help take down the EBMQG quilt show, Stitch Modern, and to pick up my quilt and bring it home. I took my PlantCam time lapse camera and set it up to take a photo every 30 seconds… I think I should have decreased the delay to take photos every 15 seconds.

I brought my PlantCam to work to see if I can get it to work properly because I had trouble with it before Christmas and just haven’t had the time to fiz/play around with it. One of my coworkers suggested using a different SD card and low and behold… it worked… so I did a couple of test time-lapse photos of the office and street outside and it totally worked. I need to find a process to make nice fades between the shots. They seem to play smoothly on my Mac, but once I upload them to Flicker, they don’t fade and just switch photos, like a slide show.
After work, my friends Darwin, Janet and AJ treated my out for a birthday dinner at Yojimbo Sushi. YUMM!!!… We ordered a lot but I guess Darwin was really hungry… hehe
When we finished, Darwin and I drove over to AMC Bay Street 16 in Emeryville to try to catch the 9pm showing of Avatar 3D… Despite nodding off at the first 10 minutes of so (I was really tired and sleepy and just eat tons for food, hehe)… I really really loved the movie!!!… Once they got to the evening scenes with the forrest radiating with so much color lights… I stayed up. The main character was also cute (which is always a plus :)… I think this has to be one of my favorites movies… If you have the chance to see it in 3D, do so!!!
The day seems to just zip by… I woke up late cuz I slept really really late (or shoudl I say early)… then had some brunch… then went out to the the back garden to check up on everything and take photos. (More about the garden in the next entry).
Afterwards, I drove over to Darwin’s and we first went to Ross to find an area rug for his living room.
We then went to The Cerrito Theater to watch Sherlock Holmes, which I didn’t think I would like but I did… The theater has sofas and tables so you can eat as if you were in a cafe while watching a movie… which was really cool, but we order way to much food…
I was so glad it was Friday yesterday. I was so tired at work and although I only worked 4 days (I was sick on Monday), the week seemed to have taken forever. I guess one of my work projects that kept on coming back with client revisions had a little something to do with it… anyways…
After work, I headed to a Darwin/Janet/AJ’s place so we can head to Yojimbo Sushi in Alameda to celebrate AJ’s birthday. Happy Birthday AJ!!! We had tons of yummy food at a really reasonable price, and the staff kept giving us a lot of "extras", because they said our food took a while to get to us. We weren’t complaining though, but this just reaffirms that they have pretty good service.
After dinner, we were planning to go see the movie Astroboy, but we ended up seeing Paranormal Activities, which was an okay movie. I didn’t know anything about it, so I was just kinda a bit scared since I heard a comments about it from some of my Facebook friends.
