At the Imports/XSport district

Remember when we had breaks between holidays?

Valentine's Day stuff. I'm buying a Christmas tree topper.

Cereal makers just aren't trying anymore.

I guess it's no worse that cookies or marshmallows in cereal, but still...

In case there was any doubt...

Lot of glare off these touchscreen polls. Poor angling and/or positioning.

Posing with Plastic Pumpkins

This is for work. No, seriously.

One thing President Obama needs to do in the next debate

Stop wasting time on big picture stuff and pare down to a handful of specifics. Give them names people can recognize; don't expect us to be able to visualize your ideas. And stick with these points no matter what. You have too much ground to defend and no time to do it. Tighten it up.

Beyond Meat™ is definitely beyond. #vegfest

Closer to chicken than anything without a face.

Vegan donuts?!? Shut up and take my money! #vegfest

Vegan baked desserts are rare enough, but vegan donuts? Hells yeah! Vegan Treats Bakery from Bethlehem, PA.

Vegan soul food from Sweet & Natural #vegfest

Impossibly good. Might be using Beyond Meat™ for the "chicken".

VegFest swag bag

Worth standing in line. Got a whole box of cereal.

In line for VegFest

First thousand get a gift bag.

Fondled an iPhone 5 today. Immediately regret it.

Rationally, I know my plan to skip it is the best approach, but it is spectacular. Impossibly light and fluid. Going to be a tough couple of years.

First in line at the Reston Apple Store

Not really. Just passing by. No line.

I took this photo today. In the year 2012.

Have to admit, I'm impressed an iPod this old still works.

Pairs I wear

How come I put on a pair of pants, a pair of underwear, and pair of eyeglasses every morning (well, most mornings) but never a pair of shirts?

Raw/Sushi Supper at Sticky Fingers

A masterful review of a tablet's pen functionality by @AndroidPolice

I’ve written entire reviews of a tablet’s pen functionality, so trust me when I say the S Pen section of this Galaxy Note 10.1 review by Android Police is magnificently done. Tightly concise yet thorough. Truly delivers an understanding of this tablet’s pen functionality.

As an Excel junkie, I admit Numbers for iOS is pretty slick.

I'm not going to stop building spreadsheets in Excel, but Numbers for iOS is leaps ahead in making them usefully mobile.

Brunch at Sticky Fingers

Just a scouting trip, but we can't resist the lure of vegan biscuits & gravy or quesadillas.

Me and my iPhone car audio remote control

Have to admit, having a car dock and music remote control for my iPhone is really convenient.

Giving Tiny Post a try too.

Don't care for the social aspects, but I think I found my new email auto-reply.

Got Diptic for iOS free today

Love how dead simple it is. It's a keeper.

Triple-nerd score in the "nailed it" column

Predicted Apple might offer email addresses for iPod touch users’ FaceTime accounts (now available through iCloud), that they’d need to offer carriers a concession for FaceTime over mobile (looking to be the case), and that non-iPhone iOS devices would get a separate icon for FaceTime calls. In fairness though, this was all after I said “no FaceTime on iPod touch” (but for reasons that still stand).

Following the "Gold"

While the rest of the Internet was scratching their heads over why Apple changed course on EPEAT certification, I followed the “gold”.

Another pot-stirrer

Second post this week drafted this way. (See Tuesday’s Ramble.) Must have something to do with my thoughts coming together while I sleep.

Amazing what I can draft while on the toilet

Yeah, I edited it at a keyboard later, but my thoughts on how Microsoft Could Win It All With Surface were 90% drafted on my iPhone while I was keeping my morning appointment. I’m so damn talented.

Also need to try #vegan @BeyondMeat at Roots Market @consciouscorner

Just learned some Twitter founders are investors (and one is vegan) in Beyond Meat, and Roots Market in MD is on their store list. That’s two road trips for vegan treats on my calendar.

Vegan sandwiches coming to Subway in DC Metro area! Thanks @TryVeg

Got to drive out to Alexandria to try one of Subway’s new vegan sandwiches. Need to make it a success so the local franchises will pick it up. Great work by Compassion Over Killing.

Naked man shot by police was reportedly chewing off another man's face

Zombie or not, I'd call that a justified shooting.

A simple way to improve chocolate bar wrapping

Make the wrapper open to the top of the bar instead of the bottom. Helps those who only eat one brick at a time.

Finally cold brewing my coffee...

...and it is strong as hell even cut with soy milk. Must reduce proportion.

Two tales of Lincoln: one is revisionist fiction...

...the other is about him hunting vampires.

Vegan sorbet from didn't have the vegan cupcakes this morning so we had to settle for sorbet.

I find broken iPhones to be strangely beautiful

Don't worry, it's not mine. Thinking about an iPhone skin that looks like this though.

Last meal before leaving the islands

Was running late so had to stop here on way to airport. Just potato and carrot in curry.

Last breakfast at home

Potatoes & spinach in a cheese-style taro sauce, plus leftover manapua from Legend.

Packing and cataloging my worldly treasures

Didn't finish but trimmed not quite six long boxes of comics to 1.5. Will be listing a lot of eBay in the coming months.

Closing time deals at Shirokiya. So tempting.

Would have eaten two of everything if I wasn't vegan.

Local flavor x2: SPAM flavored macadamia nuts

Ingredient listed as "SPAM brand flavoring". Assuming it's not vegan.
