T-t-t-touch me...

posted 17 June 2007

So I signed up for Facebook Mobile. This allows you to get mail from other members and alerts sent as text messages to your phone and is generally well-executed. In addition to the other stuff, I also get text messages whenever people poke me on Facebook -- which is weird, because my phone is always on vibrate in my pocket, so when people in the UK poke me, I actually feel it. It's pretty weird, but also really cool. I can't wait for someone to invent some kind of peripheral that can transmit hugs as well.

In other news, I had a pretty good weekend. I was zonked on Friday, but Saturday I caught a sneak preview of Ratatouille (don't watch that trailer, it ruins all the funny bits) with GB, Nick, and a trio of geeks he'd picked up at WWDC. Today we rented some bikes and went... well... all over the place, apparently more than 11 miles, starting at Golden Gate park, hanging out at the beach for a bit and then getting more than slightly lost in the little woods at the point, but managing to take in an unintentionally hilarious war memorial. Much fun though, and I felt like I really earned the giant lunch I then rewarded myself with.

Next weekend is Pride! Oh dear...
