Happy Thanksgiving 2008

Since I had the week off from work and I knew that cooking a turkey would take a long time for one person to consume, I actually cooked my thanksgiving meal on Saturday. So I've been eating turkey for the past 5 days already.

These are pictures of roasted red potatoes with garlic and thyme before going in the oven and a picture of a pre-cooked turkey that only needs 2 hours in the oven and its ready to eat.

Here's the turkey after it came out of the oven! I think it looks very good.

I thought I needed some veggies so I whipped up some broccoli, boiled in boiling water and seasoned with butter and salt. Simple and very delicious.

Here's the potatoes cooked.

Can't just have turkey, so I made this Orange and Avocado on spinach.

And finally here we have the plating. A little turkey, gravy, potatoes and broccoli.

Wrath of the Lich King

The day is finally here!!! 13th Nov 2008 is the release date for the expansion to World of Warcraft titled Wrath of the Lich King. Its a happy day for me, at least it will be in about 12 hours when I get home and install the game.

So for the next 2 weeks - 1 month, don't expect me to be at my best at work, don't expect me to attend to personal issues. Its all about playing Wrath of the Lich King and getting my priest (Astir) to level 80.

Trailer - The Day The Earth Stood Still

I'm soooo looking forward to this movie. All hail Keanu Reeves. check out the trailer.

Another awesome trailer, this one is for Watchmen.

Movie Posters

The Watchmen is yet another superhero movie coming to the big screen, this one is less well known to the general masses(unless you happen to be into comics), but very cool.

Yet more super cool posters of the New Star Trek movie.

First Snow

Woke up early Friday Morning and... its snowing! It snowed the whole morning, but as you can see the weather isn't quite cold enough for it to accumulate and it was all melted by mid noon.

Still this marks an early winter. This morning, there no trace of snow but it is cold.

THANK GOD!!! 6 months ago I was wondering how anyone in their right mind could think that MacCain would be anything other than another Bush. No matter how he may decide to change his decision making, they both came from the same place. And up till a month ago this dumb ass thought the economy was in good shape.

Not only am I overjoyed that Mr. Obama has won the election, he did it by a large margin. WOOT!!! Most people are intelligent!!!

PS. In my joy, I also forgot that its a historic moment, a black man is now president of the United States. Majority of us are color blind. :)

Its still Fall - without the leaves

Compare these pics with the pics I took only 2+ weeks ago. Winter is just round the corner now. Heck we've even seen some light snow showers. Its coming in early this year.

And on a personal note, this was my weekend meal, from costco. Meatloaf and mashed potato. The celery was my idea and contribution to eating healthy. You know? Celery and mashed potato, an excellent combo. I think I might have found a perfect alternative to ranch dressing.
