More crazy talk from the game:
If anyone runs across a large stash of Spam, could y'all do me a favour and not consume too much of it? My new mission in life is to accumulate the largest pile of synthetic meat product as possible.

So the Game NeverEnding has been the source of much humor and fun since we opened it up to testers. Pretty much everyone that has joined has quickly gotten into the spirit of the game and the in-game conversations are often quite wacky. Where else can you hear someone say this:
i shouldn't admit this, but i was the person who ate the 12 sides of beef that were left somewhere. i wanted to see what would happen.

It's not gotten cool yet here in NY (although the nights have been pleasant) but I love how the change of seasons is marked by a difference in the quality of the sunlight and its angle of incidence, and how it peaks into new corners of the house. Just like travelling to new places is invigorating because everything around you is "strange", this change in light as the Fall begins makes everything seem different, and the possibilities of change more real, and I'm once again reminded of Rilke.
