tuftears: Scared Lynx (Scared)
It's been over a month so... yeah. Time to do another round of uploading photographs! Here we have the Googleween 2016 pics. This year the theme was games! Both video games and board games.

"Wait, Tuftears, didn't you do one of these already?"

"Yes, but that was the Arts and *Crafts* fair. This is the Arts and *Wine* fair."

"So what's the difference?"

"Not a lot, this one's toward the end of the summer, but otherwise pretty much the same thing. A long stretch of booths allll the way from Central to El Camino Real."

Caveats apart, time for pictures! )

The last event of the summer that I noted was this 'pop-up' -- basically a lot of chairs and "socially friendly" settings appeared on the grass in the middle of the campus, and there were tables serving up various snacks. Not a huge event, but it was nice. Hope they do this sort of thing more often!

The other weekend, [livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx mentioned wanting to go to an interesting Japanese restaurant up in my area. Not having gotten out in a while, I importuned him to let me come along, and he was kind enough to oblige. So...

I've been distracted with Legion, WoW's latest expansion, but I've been catching up with various things-- bills, mail-in ballot voting-- and now it's time to catch up on photos! So here, have some pics of food.

The previous year that Mountain View has tried doing a 'Thursday Night Live' in the summer, I wasn't able to make it-- their dates fell inconveniently on raid nights. This time raiding wrapped up more or less in time for me to be able to make the last Thursday Night Live. So, photographic proof that I went voluntarily into the Big Bloo Room without [livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx pushing me!

My birthday rolled around a little while ago and after some thought, I decided I wanted to try a Brazilian steakhouse. My first thought was 'Foga de Chao', but after some consultation with relatives, my aunt said she'd prefer a quieter place, a sentiment with which I agreed completely. So I settled on Taurinus.

[livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx had the yen to go see the Emperors' Treasures exhibit up in the San Francisco Asian Art Museum, on the last weekend of the exhibit, so we headed up there. Yay, out into the Big Bloo Room!

This is the 'miscellany' part of my catch-up. :) Next up, the Asian Art Museum!

I posted this to my WoW community forums, but I thought [livejournal.com profile] okojosan might like to read this as well. :)

Finding Dory: a Pixar movie currently out in theaters, centered around Dory, the fish with short term memory issues. It was pretty good, really! I thought the titular Dory's mental handicap was handled fairly and with respect. It got pretty gonzo in storytelling toward the end, straining suspension of disbelief a bit, but it managed to hold together and get to a satisfying end. I'd rate it 7/10.

The Beast And His Boy: a Japanese anime that hearkens to old-school Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki in looks, featuring a young boy who, distraught by the abandonment of his father and the death of his mother, runs away and is adopted by (surprise!) a Beast. He's far from being a stereotypical 'hero' who does no wrong-- honestly he starts out as a brat, but then you wouldn't have much of a story if he was the obedient type, since he wouldn't have run away. Pretty solid IMO, 9/10.

[livejournal.com profile] dracosphynx has been jonesing for a Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki ever since his trip to Japan. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of options for something so... specific. However, he did hear about this one restaurant nearby that serves it.

So this actually happened a while back... April 23rd or so. Unfortunately before I could post about it, I got flattened with two weeks of a very severe flu. So, belatedly, have some fair pictures!

In my ongoing campaign to actually get out of the house every now and then, I noted that there was a parade going on in Mountain View. The original time was 12 noon, but they had apparently decided to move it up to 10 AM-1 PM. I figured there'd still be some part of the parade going on around 11-ish when I made it over there.

Well... Nope! Apparently the parade is really small or something.

However, there was still the 'after-parade festivities' to check out in Pioneer Memorial Park.

Is it that time of the year already? Yes, and past by two weeks-- well, better than two months of photos languishing in my phone before I get around to posting them. :)

[livejournal.com profile] kagetsume was out in the area and by happy chance, there was a Cherry Blossom festival going on in Japantown, SF, on that weekend. He was quite interested so he willingly drove me up there on that Saturday. Good for me, since I hate driving past my 'leash range', especially up in San Francisco.
