little explanation needed

Quinn sent me the following video this morning of how he spent his weekend.

He claims he lost due to "poor technique."

I got the following email today:

From: DelHoyo, Quinn
To: Devry DelHoyo
Date: Tue, Apr 22, 2008 at 4:57 PM
Subject: For you

I got a little bored while working on my DFS so I thought I would make a little greeting for you in the game.



Made my day!

color of doom

Quinn is very busy. Only two more weeks left in this term and then he is on his last term. I can't believe he is almost done. Quinn is the producer on his senior team project. I know he is working overtime in leading the team to create what I'm sure is going to be a great game.

Here are a few shots of character art as well as some screen shots of the levels.

Note: These are all work-in-progress shots. They still have 10 more weeks on this project.

Character art for the Jester (this is the player).

A bad guy.



In game action

Aren't these guys so talented? I can't wait to see and play the finished project.

I was at Williams and Sonoma yesterday window shopping and coveting almost everything in the store. But two things especially caught my eye.

Wouldn't these be so fun?

Who wouldn't want to eat breakfast when it looks like that?

Then I spotted this (well actually, i couldn't find a picture online of the pan from W&S but it is very similar to this one).

Can't you just imagine throwing a birthday party and serving this...

and these...

For instructions on how to make the cupcake lolipops/bites click here. I am dying for a reason to make these.

highlights and lowlights from my dallas trip


Spending time with Quinn. Having so much fun and being so busy that I didn't have time to blog.

Going to a BBQ, getting dessert and playing Wii with my cute former roommates Candice and Lindsey. It was so much fun to get to introduce them to Quinn and see them again after all these years.

Going to a Guildhall birthday party followed by a 3 hour game (until 2:30 am) of Phase 10 with friends Jeremy and Chetan.

Having John and Phoebe over for Sunday dinner and learning how to play Munchkin.

Making this and this.

Being able to fit into jeans that I haven't worn in over a year.


Horton Hears a Who. We were both really disapointed. For having both Jim Carrey and Steve Carrel doing voices I expected much much more.

21: Bringing Down the House. I did not like all the changes they made from the book. It was OK but the book is soooo much better.

Leaving 75 degree weather at 6:30 am and landing at 10:22 am in 32 degree weather.

Being sick for the two days after I got home.

Leaving Quinn.
