Today, I made it official. I’m using Google Voice(GV) as my primary phone service. I had been thinking about this for a while, but the recent addition to Gmail, where you can call and receive phone calls within Gmail, was the tipping point. There are for sure positives and negatives to this move and there are some things people need to know when using GV.
I realize that there are a lot of wall murals, but this is ridiculous. Actually, I was just revisiting one of my favorite sites, Photofunia. Make sure to check it out. Be prepared to waste some time having some fun.
No joke though, Philadelphia does have a lot of wall murals all around the city. Maybe that’ll be a future photography project.
No more sneaking up on people in the parking lot and waiting for them to realize that you are indeed behind them.
Another interesting week on the east coast. I worked like crazy this past week and continue to work like crazy. We did a lot of walking and had some guests. We finally had guests over for dinner for the first time. Does this mean our house is ready? Not really, but it’s getting closer.
Last week we went to the Art Museum area and this week we went again. This time we went at night. I got a few good shots, but my view of the city was partially blocked by a showing of a movie on the steps of the museum. Guess what movie they were showing. You guessed it… Rocky.
Other than that, it’s been a normal week. Today we finally ate at Bobby’s Burger Palace. It’s a burger place opened by Chef Bobby Flay. I would say it was a good burger but for the price, I was expecting a bigger burger.
This coming up week won’t be any different. A lot of work and more work. I’m hoping to have to make the other room to have some semblance of an office. We will see. Here are some photos taken this week:
Just did a quick calculation of all the gas we spent going cross country. After traveling almost 3100 miles in our little Prius, we spent about $163.76. Not bad. Of course, this doesn’t include money spent on food and lodging, but pretty good. Not doing another cross country road trip anytime soon.
My friend sent me a link to a photo of Leonardo Dicaprio wearing a UCI (University of California, Irvine) hat. I’m proud to be an Anteater.
Just curious. So… it’s 91, but it feels like 95. How do they measure the feel? I wonder if someone takes the temperature with a thermometer, then goes outside to see if it feels more than what the readout says. Just wondering.
We officially moved to Philadelphia August 3rd. Our place is finally beginning to look like a place to live in. The best news is that the weather has been cool the past couple of days after a week of scorching temperatures. The top floor of our apartment was just unusable because it was too hot. We finally did get a portable AC last week. This week, we finally setup our bed frame, TV, and a bunch of other things.
Today, was a more eventful day. We finally went to Reading Terminal Market where they had annual Dutch Festival. Later on, we entertained some out of town visitors by eating cheesesteaks and went to the Art Museum area. This is the same area where Rocky ran up.
Here are some pictures from today:
