Game Review

I just finished a challenging puzzle game called Machinarium. I really enjoyed World of Goo, but this was even better. The graphics are very uniquely styled, and the soundtrack creates a wonderful ambiance that complements the game perfectly. When you first start the game, you don't really know much of the story, but it unfolds as you go. By the time you get to the end, you just want to cheer for the little robot that you have been following around.

The makers of Machinarium, Amanita Design, are offering the game for just $5 right now. Take advantage of this - it's worth it!

I had a doctor's appointment on Tuesday, the first one in, oh, 7 or 8 years I guess. The doctor ordered a blood test for Celiac Disease. For those unfamiliar with it, it is an autoimmune disorder where the body cannot process gluten, and it causes damage to the intestines and leads to a host of other health issues and, if untreated, organ failure. Sounds pleasant, no?

I'm a little freaked out by the prospect, but on the other hand I know something is wrong and I need not only an explanation, but a way to fix it.

Have I ever mentioned hospitals/doctor's offices terrify me?

Yep, fun times.
