Three things

So... if you want to have all your clothes clean at once, you've got to be risk sitting around naked while they are washed. If you don't have a washing machine, completely clean is impossible (or not worth it at best). Life's like that: you've got to live with imperfection ... or be naked.

Whilst still lying in bed this morning soon after I awoke, out of nowhere I realized how to fold those flower-like games from elementary school. So I grabbed a piece of paper from my backpack and folded one... and it worked!

I don't know what made me think of it, but I was happy that the design in my head worked in real life. Usually twilight thoughts don't translate to reality.

This week, I've been eating fresh strawberries cut into strawberry yogurt infused with pecan bits. I like it a lot.

And I can't take very much credit for this because my duties on our Senior project team haven't dealt much with vision or navigation yet, but I'm still helping out. The car in the video below is following the green water noodle with a camera mounted on top of the car.

Oh man, My dad makes his students make cars that follow shiny disks instead of noodles. This looks almost exactly like one of his cars he showed me last time I was in AZ. Nicely done p.s.

the other day one of my piano students brought one of those folded thingies to class and i got all nostalgic... i don't think i could remember how to fold one though. maybe if i tried... also, that car is probably the coolest thing i have ever seen. just so you know.

Wow-I'm impressed that you just figured out how to fold it. I tried to do it the other day...and I had to find instructions on the internet.

I say go naked all the time. It's easier :)

(That was Richard by the way)

Matt said...

Hahahaha... I'm glad you said it was Richard; kinds startled me at first :)

i agree with kel/richard. seriously. who wouldn't want every piece of their clothing clean ALL the time?! aren't we supposed to be striving for perfection anyway? ;)
