My birthday

Yesterday was my birthday. (I was thinking about calling it my "first annual thirty-ninth birthday." Yes I feel old.)



We went down to Chung Ki Wa in Lakewood for lunch. I got some dduk guk and Doug had jap chae. (He often gets this, since he can share it with Kate and she'll eat it.) Everything was just really good. That broccoli was yummy.



I can't remember the last time I had dduk guk that I didn't make myself. It was quite tasty. Since we didn't have any for the lunar new year I thought I'd get some for my birthday (seemed appropriate, since I was turning a year older).



Birthday pictures!






"Can we stop this now?"

For my birthday I got the Eye-One Display 2 calibrator. I was having trouble with my monitor before, getting some weird greenish banding in the shadows. Calibrating seems to have solved that problem, but I'm still not sure on the color. The pictures from Doug's birthday look very red now. So I'm tring to figure out if my color is off now or if it was just really, really off when I did those pictures.

Happy belated birthday! Your photos make me want Korean food! The place we found in Denver was a bit of a drive and was next door to an "Adult" store if you know what i mean! LOL!

Happy Birthday, Helena! I've always wanted a monitor calibrator--I bet it'll come in handy! I went and saw Doug's photos again, and to me they're not red (i.e., the white is white, not pink). But there are lots of red things in the photo! =)
