By the time Friday evening rolls around, I’m pretty useless. Friday nights are good for a decent beer and maybe a movie. Friday nights are also good for DS106.
I’ve spent the work week cataloging a slew of new books. It’s boring, soul-killing work. I did reward myself with some Makerbot time today though. I printed a companion cube (today’s Makerbot daily print).
As it was printing, a group of upper school kids came in and checked out the Replicator as it was printing.
Kid A: “What are you making?”
Me: “A companion cube.”
Kid A: “OH MY GOD! ARE YOU SERIOUS? I’VE GOT TO MAKE ME A COMPANION CUBE! Hey, she’s making a companion cube!”
Or at least it went something like that anyway. Unbridled enthusiasm–that’s what it was, and it’s what was needed at the end of a tedious week.
I also rewarded myself with some DS106 tonight. I caught up on videos, thought about movie scenes that I could use for GIFing, popped in Clue, and settled in to read some DS106 blogs while keeping one eye on the screen. I stumbled across a blog post by Kelsey Matthews. She also GIFed a scene from Clue. Talk about your plate of shrimp.
I decided to use the cut-away to Yvette in the billiard room with the tape recorder. She’s recording Tim Curry’s explanation as to why the guests (Col. Mustard, Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. Scarlett, etc. etc.) are being blackmailed by the party host.
It’s not as cool as I was thinking it would be, but that’s ok. One day. One day I’ll have something just as awesome and artful as this.
