Harry and I went to a theme park recently, where we played tons of carnival games.
We had a lot of fun at this one particular game where we competed against other players by rolling balls into holes with higher point values.
Harry got really good at the game and ended up winning a fidget spinner.
Now he fidgets all the time. 😛
A while ago, I took some virtual flight lessons. It was really neat learning how to pilot a Cessna.
We even learned how to recover from airplane stalls.
Even though it was pure simulation, I was freakin’ out.
It was fun.
Jenny is a citizen scientist. Right now she’s more citizen than scientist, but she still has big dreams.
A while ago, Andy introduced us to Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire, a mobile game. Here’s my taxi license if I was a driver.
I love the game’s AMAZING characters. I mean, look at this:
Y’all should play.
I got to see the real Utah teapot!
A couple of weeks ago we went to the Computer History Museum.
While the museum had tons of really neat exhibits like a fully restored IBM 1401, the highlight for me was seeing the original Utah teapot.
It was a complete surprise to stumble upon the teapot.
Here’s a fanart of Anna from the new Fire Emblem iOS game.
I haven’t really drawn fanart like this since a time in my youth, when I was obsessed with Nintendo.
This doodle was inspired by a need to do something more productive/theraputic than iOS games.
Perhaps there’ll be more.
I came in second at a Friday Night Magic event recently.
We were drafting the new Conspiracy set, and I created a neat Black/White deck that revolved around being the Monarch.
Queen Marchesa’s minions really helped me out in some tight situations.
This was the most fun set I’ve played with since Magic Origins. I hope there’s more Conspiracy sets in the future.
Next leg of the trip, we stopped by COSI Science Center.
Some of the highlights were:
- Riding on a highwire unicycle.
- Solving puzzles in the Indiana-Jones-esque Adventure exhibit
It was a lot of fun!
Harry went on his first airboat ride last weekend. He loved it!
Playing Pokemon Go on the subway feels like Pokemon Snap.
I ran my first 5K this weekend!
It was surprisingly a lot of fun.
Running with other people is soo much better than running along, and totally motivates you to run faster.
I finished around 30 minutes and feel pretty great.
