#7: Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!

10 points for the reference in the title!  Also please make sure to feed the killer bunnies.

It's 1 AM, I'm exhausted, and I think my upstairs neighbors are tap dancing whilst assembling IKEA furniture with cymbals.  I think this here youtube video pretty much sums it up.

In unrelated news, after 1 month as (technically) a graduate student in CS, I have lost 14 lbs of either fat or muscle mass.  I really think there is something about the corporate world, or fashion in general, that creates a very toxic relationship to food.  It's like the conscientious void of it has a huge presence, and thinking about what trash you're going to order for lunch is the only thing getting you through the day.  That's sort of a depressing thought.  The other possibility is that NYC just has better takeout.  I've been pretty good about meal planning here, and I think the fact that I live alone and hardly go out to eat or drink is mostly the reason for my de-bloat.  Well, thank heaven for small favors.  Maybe I can almost-rexi my way back to my high school jeans size.

A scene from my "Adventure Module" Assignment, aka my homework for the wedding

In other news, I had a homework assignment to make a visual representation of my "Adventure Module" which ended up being Lizzie's wedding, since it conflicted with the actual Adventure Module class trip.  I wanted to use both photographs and a cartoon.  I've included an example of my work here.  Cue the "awww" and save the cartoon critique for another day.  I am aware that my comic persona lacks bangs and glasses.  I did my best.

In further news, round 2 of Building Virtual Worlds has come to a close, and I have included our gameplay video below.  The basic premise of this project is the idea of the "naive guest / sense of freedom" which is a fancy way of saying that you're not allowed to give the guest any instruction or gameplay cues.  Naturally, my team decided to have things floating in space that you have to reassemble.  A hamburger serves as the tutorial.   Boom.

Cheeseburger in paradise

And now it is time to say "Auf Wiedersehen"... For now.  Probably until next week.
