An update post in lieu of real content

It's the most craziest time of the year at my school, and then my social calendar got busy besides. In four days time, I had: three meetings, one portfolio show, one graduation, one staff lunch (which lasted almost four hours and involved a great deal of wine), two dinners out, two film festivals (one work-related, one not), and a fashion show.

Phew!

It's mostly fun stuff, mind you (except for the meetings), and I've been enjoying the days. But now I need a weekend to recover from my weekend, and instead I get three more days of meetings. Whee. However! These days o' meetings will be followed by two four-day weekends in a row, which should more than make up for it. Yay, flexible schedules over break.

Also this weekend, somehow, among all the social events, we found time to finish World of Goo and then finally start Portal. I've been wanting to play Portal since I found out it existed. We just finished Level 16 (robots arrrrrrgh), and so far it is every bit as awesome as I have heard. World of Goo was great, too; I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys puzzle games. Plus, it might just have the best music of any game I've ever played. And I don't say that lightly. I think the only other non-Final Fantasy game music I've been this taken with was Freedom Fighters, which I used to encourage T to play just so I could hear its awesome Russian choruses. But I digress... Portal: thumbs way up. Rumor has it that a sequel is on the way, which is pretty exciting -- so far, I suspect that my biggest complaint about the game is going to be that there wasn't enough of it.
