This statue is about 12 feet high, maybe about the same length. Looks formidable outside the place.
Burger King. Double stacker, large fries, diet coke, BBQ sauce.
Normally the pre-YAPC meal is waffles, but that didn't work out due to this year's travel plans. Eating BK en route to YAPC is my big shout out to Phil R. Lawrence.

This excellent Kansan beer (and much more) was generously donated to the Perl Email Project by the good people at wirebird.com. They are looking for volunteers.
Yes, that really is a portrait of Colonel Sanders in the University of Houston Hilton. No, I don't know why.
This poster of Alyssa Milano is left over from the 2000 Campaign for 1-800-COLLECT. Does anyone even use pay phones any more?
I love love love this restaurant. It's a mostly-vegan place called Pepper Tree. We went on a Sunday night, where for $12 we could fill our plates with the dozens of different delicious foodstuffs they had. When they ran out of some dish, they would replace it with something different, so every time you made another trip to the buffet you had a different set of choices. Everything was absolutely delicious. Especially the curry, and the salady thing with walnuts, and the cake, and the sushi, and the sesame balls, and everything else too.
The only way it could possibly be better is if the sesame balls contained red bean paste. (Instead, it was chocolate.)

The rig. It smelled so damn good I was willing to overlook what we'll call an unusual approach to food safety.
Smoking a Cuban Montecristo purchased in Grand Cayman. Relaxing in Alfried's Cigar bar on the Carnival Conquest Ship. Kristyn shot this on her SD800.
