I’m still alive! The semester is winding down and homework-wise I’m almost done. I just have to finish one last Linux kernel project and, after a poster presentation on Thursday, I’ll write an executive summary about my usability project and be done. I have a group presentation to give in a little bit, then I’ll find Poonam and she if she wants to get some lunch/dinner.
I’ve been playing Fat Princess like crazy lately, ever since discovering the wonderful Cake Lair forum filled with hardcore players. I convinced my friend Dan to get the game and, by extension, his roommate Tony has also been playing with me. They’re excited about the game because they say it’s similar to Team Fortress 2, with all the classes. I finally made it to Queen rank and have been practicing my Ranger skills.
Besides Fat Princess, Jon got me a second Sixaxis controller and Little Big Planet for my birthday, so we’ve been doing two-player co-op with that. We brought it to Dan and Tony’s house this past weekend and had a good four-player session, but we died so much in The Wedding section.
My parents had some crazy weather recently, involving such powerful wind that a huge branch broke off their box elder tree and landed in the dogwood tree. Mom’s flower pots and plants were strewn about, and a neighbor’s barn blew down. We didn’t have as much trouble here in Lexington, only getting sheets of rain and some wind. I slept well those nights because rain always lulls me to sleep; I love a good thunderstorm.
