 Tower of Snakey Glass!
 Dangling Glass!
 Fuzzy Cube Made of Glass Shards
 Semi-translucent Triangle!
 Black Mirror!
 Tree!
 Bunny w/ Shards!
 Stacks on Stacks on Stacks
 They're Upside-Down!
 Bee! Giant Telescope!
 Aminal!
 Realistic Squid!
Non-Repaired glass critter!

That's it for Saturday! It was a scary and long drive back, but it was okay!

Alright! It's Friday! Time toooooooo nap.

Let's see what happened today. Went to school, still looking into papers to figure out how to analyze some data and how to present a cohesive story to folks with my simulation data. Oh, I ended up  going to the retirement ceremony of our custodian (30 years, WOW!). It was a fun gathering. Folks said some words, there was a cute dance, and pizza. Other than that, not much else for the work day.

Back at home, I needed to get laundry done, but instead I played some more Pillars of Eternity! I made it to the Master Below. It was fairly impossible, but I managed to talk my way outta it :P

Oh, I made muffins to prep for our trip tomorrow! Where to? Corning! To check out the museum of Glass!

That's it for today, hopefully tomorrow I have some pics! See you then!

Okay, truth be told, I kinda miss coming up with fun titles for my post, it kept me thinking. Teh Cute Girlfriend says it's my blog, and I can do what I want with it. yeah, buy if there's one thing that helps SEO, it's a random string of numbers.

So, got driven to the secondary location for our lab. Lab tech and I needed to troubleshoot one of the pieces of equipment. After our time, there, it was a fairly uneventful day of work. The only other notable thing was post-work Arkham LCG campaigning. If you have never heard of Arkham Horror LCG, it's worth picking up. It's pretty fun to take on the roll of an investigator and solve mysteries that are unfolding around you. Lab tech owns two copies of the game (needed for >2 players) and is slowly buying the expansions as they come out. He's waiting for the next big expansion Dunwich Legacy to come out. But anyways, it was a gaming afternoon and pizza day.

After I got home, I prepared for my drive out to a middle school were I'm doing sound for. It was a dangerous drive. I almost slipped off the road coming off the highway. And the road to the middle school was a little slippery. I finally went to check out the musical, so I have a better idea of what's going on in the show. Seems fairly straightforward, if not a large cast though. (I'm aware that the preceding sentence didn't make sense, but whatevs) I called teh cute girlfriend so that she'd be aware that I'm driving, so if I don't make it back home in an hour, that I'm probably dead. haha. But, it had stopped snowing by the time the musical was out, so the roads weren't as slippery, that and I took the side streets. So I made it home safely, yay!

That was about my day, I think that I played a little more Pillars of Eternity, I made it to the bottom of the endless paths, and met the master below!

Hey friends,
So, hopefully, this will be a little bit longer than my previous post. Apologies for those really looking forward to knowing what a normal guy does on a random Tuesday. Okay,
Started off by getting to school in time for our lab meeting. It was fairly productive, I laid out where I was on my project, and how far we'd gotten the code ready for our next experiment. After that, our PI went to the office and helped troubleshoot. At lunchtime, he took us to Chipotle (which we hadn't done a lab outing in a while, so it was fun). I then spent the rest of the day trying to make sense of some math and annotating the musical I'll be running sound for. good times.

Back on the homefront, teh cute girlfriend and I drove to Staples to bind the script I'm working on. We hung out at a nearby Starboo while we waited. We talked about travel clothes and the travel books she is reading. I wish I had more cash-money to travel with :(

After an hour or so, we picked up the script and headed home. Back there, I played more PoE and watched a couple episodes of Westworld. That show is pretty good so far. I'm feeling uninspired with my tweets, so please don't judge the quality of my tweets during this transitional period.:)

Alright, so the slippery slope starts here. Luckily, there wasn't too much to say about Tuesday. I assume I went to work, and played Pillars of Eternity. I definitely blogged, I also tweeted. I didn't however knit. My next project is a bit of a grind, so I'm procrastinating :P

That's all I can think of for Tuesday adventures. See, that's why I do these things daily, so I won't forget :)

Ahoy friends!
In the hope of establishing some sort of routine, maybe I'll try to do these in the morning. Although, I think I tend to wait until the very last minute of the day to write about the previous day... Whatevs.

Woke up early, made my patented omelette-sadilla. Made some coffee, and got to knitting (having some Lasertime running in the background). It was great! I finished my first circle knit hat! It was too small :( Even for teh cute girlfriend's tiny head. But I was still fairly proud of it :)



I played way more Pillars of Eternity than I wanted to, I'm currently doing "in city" quests, so it's not as interesting. Um, I had a second cup of coffee with some Madeleines that we got at Costco (membership is the best Christmas gift ever).

We went out on another trek, we were thinking of going to Genesee Valley Park again, but halfway through, teh cute girlfriend spotted a dead deer at the cemetery! We pulled over into the cemetery and walked around. Teh Cute Girlfriend took some pictures and we tried to CSI the cause of death. We also managed to get to the grave of Susan B. Anthony, which I hadn't gone visit since I've been here. So that was pretty awesome.

After our mini-adventure, we went back home, driven by the rain. I played some more PoE. I read a bit, although later at night than I hope. And I tweeted!, so far so good... resolutions.

I'm sure that I'll get over this cool fractional naming convention at some point after I no longer think that it's cool. But for now! Hello friends!
So yesterday was the first day of the new year. How did I spend this day? Mostly sitting at home, playing Pillars of Eternity, thinking of what to do for a New Year's Resolution. I decided on the following extremely cliched (and improbable) things (followed by a rank 1-10 of least to most probable):

1. work out. (3)
2. read more books (4)
3. make more stuff (5)
4. tweet a day (6)
5. blog(7)

That first day, I accomplished most of those things. Let's see, oh, I continued knitting my first hat with the cable knitting needles that I got for Christmas. I started reading a Handbook for Biological Sciences, (a dollar book I got). Teh Cute Girlfriend and I went for a walk at the Genesee Valley Park. I pokemanned while we walked. We ended up seeing some doves and a woodpecker! Also a bunch of geese!
After we returned from the park, I started working on my masterpiece:
Above: Awesomeness

That's how I closed out the first day of the new year! :)
PS: What're y'alls resolutions? and how likely are you to carry them out?
