Farmville 'winery'Late last night, they released the “Crafting Buildings” in Farmville. I got a winery and looked at the stuff that you could make. At launch, you could make sake, red table wine, white sangria, and stuff like that. OK, whatever. This morning, I looked at the winery again, and found that now you could make “energy drink”, “red grape juice”, and “white grape cooler”. Very interesting. I wonder if some neo-Prohibitionist Maude Flanders thought that making virtual wine would corrupt the nation’s youth!!1! or something like that, and then organized a massive virtual hissy fit against Zynga. I can’t imagine that working in this day and age, but there are a lot of people out there who are easily scared and not very bright.

Tuesday at work was relatively normal. Our cube farm has now shrunk by about 33%. This is not as bad as it could’ve been, but we’re all packed together much more closely and we’ve lost our large table.

Trivia: was sparsely attended. Many of the usual crew were in Hawaii or unable to attend for other reasons. We somehow managed to win the competition, though. There were a bunch of questions about movies that we’d seen and “Shark Week” on the Discovery Channel. We thought that the Discovery Channel should produce a show where Justin Bieber gets eaten by a shark. Think about it! Instant ratings gold and a ton of media attention.
