Aaaand…here’s a screenshot from my getting-taxes-done process! It felt good to get this done early this morning. Yeah, yeah, I was one of those who waited until the last minute…and then fell asleep over my laptop at 1am right in the middle of working on the tax dramas the night before the deadline. Anyway, it’s […]

Serenity at Santa Cruz (ii), originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
Some friends and I are going to be in Santa Cruz this Sunday, hanging out in the sunshine (and there damn well had better be sunshine, or I shall be pissed). I sent out a reminder email a few days ago with the following Highly Important Questions:

Tangerines!, originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
Hi, is this thing still on?
I know. It’s been a long while.
Owl has tried shaming me with harassment tactics, and H (”Yasmin Without an E”) has probably resignedly reverted to reading about immunoglobulins, and Baji’s still holding out hope, and Hashim has given up altogether.
I like when I beat […]

Just trying out the new flickr slideshow-embedding feature. This is my favorite building in the world, so far - the Commodore Stockton School (Chinatown, San Francisco) - which I serendipitously stumbled across one day.
In case you didn’t know, I’m obsessed with yellow, and with arches.

Waiting, originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
Sometimes, I run away and lie around in the park all afternoon, reading books and listening to music and taking photographs. Sometimes, I even skip around on my jump-rope (but I discovered early on that that works better on concrete than on grass), and my new goal in life is to […]

I’m pretty sure I’ve forgotten how to blog - or, at least, how to write in general. This is a sad state of affairs. And if that’s not bad enough, Adnan has gone and deleted all RSS feeds from his GoogleReader.
“But how you vill follow veblogs now?!” I exclaimed [mentally, […]

Street parking, originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
One of my favorite cafes has a slightly fancy-schmancy name. I am generally anti-fancyschmancyness, but some things must be forgiven in favor of redeeming qualities like, well, food. And the internet. Let us not forget the internetS.
I discovered the place one morning in early January, after I had hand-written […]

I want a vespa the color of tangerines, originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
Missed you much, Blogistan. Going through my Drafts folder now, and finishing up old, half-written posts I had never got around to publishing. Here’s one from last month; excuse the slightly disjointed nature of it. More are coming. I promise.

Sunshine-y orange, to cheer me up on rainy days like today, by yaznotjaz
Sometimes when I am bored or tired or stressed, I hit “compose” on a new email window and type nonsense. Like this one at work today:
This is one example of the ways in which we can collaborate on projects based around shared issues […]

From Pearls Before Swine
I’m in the midst of making lists and running errands, and my brother just sent me a text-message:
Keep the twenty dollars, I’m taking your sunglasses. :) muahaha!
He’s referring to the orange-brown aviator sunglasses that the Lovely L Lady convinced to buy (for eight dollars, for the record) from an accessories stand on […]

And then the sun came out, originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
Clearly, I am highly useless at this one-post-a-day drama.
Now that this ridiculous work-week is over, I can breathe more easily. I drove to the office this morning while squinting against the sunshine, wearing the orange-brown aviator sunglasses the Lovely L Lady recently approved and made me […]

“Smug expression on the slightly bow-legged bull in center front,” originally uploaded by yaznotjaz.
While taking photos at Oakland’s Lake Merritt one gray afternoon, I zoomed in on this pier because I thought someone had spray-painted the word “HOT” on there, which I thought was the funniest thing in the world. Only when uploading the photos […]
