Sentence Generator

Since the funniest part of the Game Generator merely turned out to be the NOUN NOUN combinations, I figured I’d grab that bit of code and make it a little more generic. This post has a text box for your own sentence templates, and it will replace NOUN ADJECTIVE and VERB tokens with random words from out of my lists.

Game Generator

I was discussing games at work recently, and ended up analyzing Hero Academy as a card-based TBS with a interesting global action points mechanic. I’m probably mis-characterizing Hero Academy, as I’ve never even finished a game, but at least that fits my pattern of video game analysis. I started to sound so formulaic that my past enjoyment of madlibs led me to create stochastic strings following this formula; they sound just like me but are sometimes amusing and thought-provoking.

Real Recipes

Since my last cooking post wasn’t entirely serious (or helpful), here are some real recipes I enjoyed. I have very unusual tastes in cooking, the first one is designed for texture and the second is designed for color – I’m not really one for tasting food as it goes down 😉 . I’ve also included the recipe I bake for taste, which I got from someone else.

“Ultimate” Burrito

Tried a new recipe recently: The Ultimate Burrito. It’s like every other burrito you’ve had – rolled into one. It has seven fillings plus your choice of salsa. This makes it halfway between a real meal and putting the contents of your fridge in a blender. It went about as well as could be expected, so I don’t think I’ll be repeating it. Thus, I will chronicle its life story here.

The Rhino War

Filling out my backlog took an obvious and lengthy pause due to illness. Fortunately the fevered imaginings of a man on his death bed is perfect for creative writing; pity I only had a cold. It still led to some fresh material, and here it is.
