Aero Art Contest WinnersDecember 12, 2011 at 12:58 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment
Although I’m sure most of you have already seen this, I wanted to post the video announcing the winners of the Aero Art Contest here just in case…
Congratulations to those who won, and thank-you to everyone who entered! You are all so talented and creative, and I’m honored that you chose to participate. It was tons of fun getting to see Aero in so many different works of art; you’ve all inspired me to hold more contests and events in the future! In case you’d like to check out all of the entries, you can find them on this site (courtesy of Reives).
One more video for this week… Per request, here is the music from Zone J in the Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers game for the NES.
Okay now that the videos have been posted… I’m still recovering from this past weekend! We flew up to Seattle for the PopCap Christmas party, and spent some time hanging out with friends from the office. The night before the party, we grabbed drinks at Two Bells with Rich and Gene before going into the office to play King of Tokyo and 3 very funny and memorable rounds of mafia (thanks Tod for griefing everyone, Lindsey for the hilarious story about skiing over the river, Rich for cracking up during the first night, Matt for being a trooper about Tod tricking everyone into killing the sheriff, and George for his King of Tokyo rampage).
The next day we had a team lunch, hung out at the office for a bit, and then head over to the disco themed party. There were disco zombies on stilts walking around, disco balls, live music, dancing, photobooths, food and drinks, and games. But my favorite part of the night was sneaking a bunch of poker chips with Theresa and Halle from the guy running the roulette table, and then running to the dance floor and throwing them into the air shouting “we woooooooooooon!!”
After the party wasn’t as cool… because, well, I was violently ill all night from what I can only imagine must have been food poisoning. We almost missed our flight the next day because I couldn’t stop throwing up, it was that bad. George went out in the middle of the night to find some medicine, and we stayed up basically the entire time watching Cartoon Network in between bouts of running to the bathroom. I know it sounds strange, but I feel oddly rejuvenated from the whole ordeal. Perhaps it’s the contrast, but going from not being able to even drink water without having to throw up, to feeling completely normal again makes me feel so strong! Haha… Anyways, I hope I can get a lot done this week. Thanks for reading my random ramblings. Oh, and Dylan if you’re reading this: Thanks to your family for having us over — we had a great time with you all (and Dan and Zita) yesterday… Even though our island cracked in half!!!
