Wings, Launch Party, Birthdays, and Facebook

Last modified on January 24th, 2008

Well, it’s almost the weekend again. I awoke this morning to some major construction going on in one of the units around me, and I sure hope it’s done before Saturday morning rolls around.

Last night I hit Wings on Granville with Rebecca, Keira and John. For those of you who haven’t been, it’s a quaint little spot next to the Howard Johnson hotel on Granville Street that has cheap wings from 2-6pm daily.

The girls basically did two pitchers of beer by themselves, so I imagine they were feeling pretty tipsy by the time they left.

This weekend is already shaping up to be fairly busy. Tomorrow night is the third Launch Party Vancouver 3 down at the Lamplighter in Gastown. I’ve been asked to come shoot some photos of the Vancouver technology community, so I’ll swing by and do that. I finally picked up a proper flash diffuser for my 430EX flash, so hopefully I can make good use of that if it’s a bit dark.

Saturday night a few of us are getting together for a few more wings and probably some bowling. Chad and Danielle are also having their engagement party, which I’ll probably swing by at some point as well. Monday night is the Facebook Developer Garage, and it’s looking like I’ll be the official photographer for that event. Rebecca will be live blogging the event and linking to the photos in real-time, so make sure you check it out.

I’ve been going pretty much non-stop since Christmas time, so I’ve decided that next weekend is going to be a me weekend. I’m probably going to hop in my car (or on a plane?), turn off my cell phone, and get the hell out of dodge for a weekend. Looking forward to that.

    Good for you! Getting out of town and shutting the computer and cell phone off does wonders!

    P.S. No more free photo gigs, k? These companies should be paying you to be taking spectacular photos.

    Where did you get a Flash diffuser and what is the benefit of it? Do I need one for my flash? I’ll see you tomorrow. I may bail on Monday.
