Food Geek and a Google Rant

long time no post. and Google Docs apparently doesn't integrate with Blogger (both google properties, how frustrating, you would think they are GE's Healthcare IT department)

Need to do better, at least for myself. I have a tendency to flit between projects and not really do one to completion, mostly at home as there is no urgency or deadline.

One of my Geekiness traits is that I am a food geek, and for fun I woke up a bit early today to try out a breakfast pizza recipe. It is located on the recipe found here I just lessened the number of eggs by one and added savoy cabbage which came in our CSA box.

I accidentally rolled out too much dough so I cut around the edges and made strips of dough which I added Cinnamon sugar too and baked those as well. Definitely needed a bit of butter before applying the Cinnamon sugar mix, would have tasted better.

Well, off to work. I have to figure out why the demo database has had it’s security messed up. (probably my fault actually, silly domain merge)

Unless of course google changed their publish options at which point I will handle publishing this after work. (actually on Saturday now)

So we did it. Here is my 2 1/2 year old son in a little Kimono.

The obi is very poor. In order to have it done for the anime con I just grabbed a contrasting color fabric (fleece sadly). Kenji really liked the spinning to put on and take off the obi. As expected he did not wear it a long time, so we had regular clothes under his outfit.

This was at Sakuracon 2010, the kimono is a vintage kimono from . 

For future costuming it is great to have a real kimono that you can see how it is made.

Some additional pics from our Sakuracon trip and stories coming later.

What Kind of Geek am I?

I am a geek, I saw this image showing pictures of a bunch of different geeks a long time ago, but it relates to the blog so I wanted to mention what kinds of fandom I consider myself to be a part of. Or in other words what kind of geek I am. Geek is an odd word and I may use it loosely, as my geek cred in all fandoms may not be of the highest quality. I still identify with the groups so they will be included here.
56 geeks poster complete to buy the poster from the artist.

So here is the brief list.

Star Trek Geek
Star Wars Geek
Cosplay Geek
Anime/Manga Geek
Apple Geek
Former RPG Geek (Haven't actually played in years, ah the days of WEG Star Wars)
Food Geek 

Or using the more arcane Geek Code (not all categories used, some are outdates, some I don't care) They of course need to reexamine it for XML to include more geek subcultures. Where do I put down my thoughts on Stargate or the new Battlestar Galactica. Of course you would need a better understanding of RDF and XML than I have to create one or extend one.

Blogger Test

Testing Blogger/Google Docs integration.

Now test edits in Google Docs, do they carry over??

This seems to work a lot more seamless than publishing a wave, though a wave would be good for comments as opposed to another method.

Now to test images.

Hinata by you.

Not that anyone reads this.

I am going to try to revive this blog.

As part of that I will be using this entry to test some things regarding how I go about creating posts. Ignore my dust.
