Last Friday we went to a birthday dinner for my friend, Jonathan. It was at a restaurant named Saravanaa Bhavan, and the cuisine was south Indian. I had no idea that there was a regional difference in Indian cuisine, however it makes sense. Surely you Stateside folks can recognize there's a regional difference in American food, amirite?
As Jonathan stated, south Indian food is kinda like junk food. It's not all that healthy, but damn if it isn't delicious (reminds me of another southern cuisine).
|I got this mammoth rice pancake/burrito thing. It was off the hinges.|
|The paste on the inside - I can't even remember what it was.|

|All in all, there were about 20 of us. We were there for about three hours. It was equal parts yum and fun.|

|Jim also brought these by. Interestingly enough, they're not an American import.|
Every now and again, I find something worth photographing on my walk back from the gym. A few days ago, I spotted this man in his Fiat pulling an Austin Powers in the alley.
I knew I wouldn't have too many pictures this week (I've dropped my phone so many times that the camera doesn't focus much anymore; if anyone has a phone they'd like to mail me, I'll gladly accept...for the blog, naturally), so I asked Kenz to send me a few pictures. This is what she's been up to this week:
Along with her regular schoolwork, she's finally built something out of all the Diet Coke bottles she's been saving the past few months. It's an actual weight-bearing chair (although I haven't sat on it yet...)

Part of her new work has to do with learning how to do computer coding. She bought a microcontroller so that she can start to use sensors and other components to make kinetic sculptures. These are sculptures that'll have potential for movement or in constant motion (I think). If you're interested, she says you can find out more by going to Arduino.cc.

|She's pretty excited to have started writing code.|
Have a great weekend and thanks for reading.
