side projects stealing the show  
Been working on an i2c real time clock and a Digital IO expander for the arduino. Those two projects have been sucking up too much time, hah. When i bought them i was thinking "neato! i just plug them in and bam! new device added." Almost done with the IO expander though.. it's actually working right now on the desk (blinking at me). Just need to make it work better and clean up the code.

Spiders. They are always invading my room :/ This morning when i woke up a dark blob with legs too close to my face was startled by the light and tried to scramble away. In a panic i grabbed a hanger with those little spring-loaded clothespin things and trapped him inside (lethal, i assure you). Today at work i sketched out several robots to guard my door from these creepy invaders.

I'm thinking, how hard can it be? Just a tiny roving robot in my room. See a moving object, drive up to within an inch of it, CRUSH IT WITH MIGHTY ROBOT ARMS! WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong?

Oh gross at the spider. One of them built a web between my Ikea CD/knick knack tower and the wall. Another crawled across the fresh sheet of paper I'd just put on my makeup table. I don't like this.

Accidentally crush tiny bats and mice? O_o

well, those robots could see you moving in your bed at night and then smash your face with their tiny "big beefy" arms.

..either i don't notice the spiders, or they just like your room because i don't seem to have an issue with them.
