Other
E got to be a game playtester for a top secret game still in its development phase w/ Schell Games, a local video game company.
The last two weeks have been kind of low-key with W & M being sick.

Quotable
"Wait, that's your sarcastic voice!"

Upon asking E if he enjoyed being a video game playtester & whether or not he'd like to do it again, he replied, "Yeah, I could pencil that into my schedule".

"Industrial Farming MOD for Minecraft? They have factory farming in Minecraft? What the hell, yo?"

"Did you know that we were all female once? Yeah, that's weird, but cool."

"You remember how I said I wish everything was free? Well, it would be so great, because then people wouldn't mug and rob other people, because they could just take whatever they needed, whenever they needed it. That would be so awesome. People would be so much more awesome if they just had what they needed."

E: "I have an urgent matter to attend to."
M: "Oh, do you require my assistance?"
E: "Um, no. I got this covered!"
