After nearly being eaten by a foxy fox, the Gingerbread man has gotten smart and learnt self defence -- now re-baked as the 'Ninjanbread Man', the player must navigate across deadly Jam lakes and through Cake Mountains, finding your way while keeping an eye out for evil cupcakes, shambling jelly monsters! Cheese cake slices and honey bees!

Across four modes of gameplay, Ninjabread Man must collect power ups to increase the power and range of Ninjabread man's weapons as well as use Ninja skills to jump onto high ledges, dash past enemies and find the Magic Candies! Throw Ninja stars to stun enemies and then follow up with Ninjabread Man's mighty samurai sword, reducing enemies into a quivering pool of Raspberry Jam.

And for reference a list of Wii games I wish to play on my imaginary Wii. (Mayhaps the Wii could be an awesome wedding present or a reward for losing 92 lbs?)

Saturday, Jonathan installed and beat Portal.

(Portal is a single-player first-person action/puzzle video game developed by Valve, consisting primarily of a series of puzzles which must be solved by teleporting the player's character and other simple objects using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (the "portal gun"). The goal of each puzzle is to reach an exit point. The "portal gun" and the unusual physics it creates are the emphasis of this game.)


At the end of the game, he received a cake, a cute binary cake, as reward for finishing the nineteen levels.



The Portal Cake

That's all good and well, but he deserved a real cake for such a victory.

So I baked him a Portal Cake.




Jonathan's real life Portal Cake prize. With the November issue of WIRED in the top left corner, and Jonathan's feet to the right.


This cake is great. It really is so delicious and moist and no attempted murders were involved in the creation of it.

Random Fact


Look at me still talking when there is Science to do!
-Still Alive by J. Coulton

If Jonathan's personality could be summed up in one line, this would be it. Whenever I hear Still Alive, I think of him, and the science he could be doing if he wasn't talking to me.

Everybody, sing Still Alive with me!

A co-worker pointed out to me today that I combine my hobbies.

I love video games.

I love to knit.

My next project is to knit a scarf of level one of Super Mario Bros.

http://ian-albert.com/misc/gamemaps/super_mario_bros/full/mario-1-1.gif


Following that logic, is this next idea any surprise?

I love Harry Potter novels.

I love cupcakes.

I am going to make Hogwart's House cupcakes!

Flavours

Slytherin:
Creme de Menthe chocolate cupcakes with dark chocolate ganache
or
Lime Coconut cupcakes with coconut cream whipped frosting

Ravenclaw:
Snickerdoodle cupcakes with blue mocha buttercream frosting
or
Blueberry pineapple cupcakes with a pineapple glaze

Hufflepuff:
Caramel cupcakes with toffee chips and chocolate ganache
or
banana cupcakes with dark chocolate chips and Butterscotch buttercream frosting

Gryffindor:
Strawberry cupcakes with lemon merengue frosting
or
Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese pecan frosting


(EDIT: Not up for voting, I am making one of each, kind of a light option and a heavy option for each house. I will make these after the move. Tallytown peeps will be meh lab monkeys.)
------------------------

Oh, and I may or may not have been spoiled for Book 7. I was reading a celebrity gossip blog and accidentally read what may or may not be a spoiler. After confiding what I read to Jonathan, he thinks it is bogus.

I hope so.
