This week in pictures

Trying something new.


I argue against propagandistic chain mail style WeChat messages in my family chat room.

We buy banana chips at Trader Joe’s and I change my Twitter name to bananachips for a day (because Melinda said: “I love banana chips the most!”).


Helen’s becoming-US-citizen celebration party.

Never miss opportunities for selfies with Hamilton.


Melinda changing the oil of the car. (I helped a little!)


Trying the new VSCO face filter selfie cam.

Getting some pizza at our local Pacifica pizza place, Paisanos.


Twitter HQ gets in the pride month mood.

A mini offsite at Smittens with a bunch of our freshmen interns and other colleagues.

Walking back from Hayes Valley.

Hanging out with Melinda and her cousins at Make Westing in uptown Oakland — where we watched the exciting 4th Warriors vs Cavs game amongst very loud patrons.


Gorilla BBQ, another local Pacifica joint. They are in a cool red train car and I used this opportunity to take a cool portrait of Melinda (“moody rock star” — Nick Morgan).

Me: “I’m not grumpy.”


Pigeon Point Lighthouse — where we ate our delicious barbecue meal!

Cool train tracks in Davenport by the coast.

It was a really beautiful day to drive down Highway 1 in a convertible.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
