I had a phone interview with the New York Times this morning. No, really.
Epril got me started on this Facebook game called Farmville. Not one to do anything at any speed less than full bore, and any effort less than full-assed, I studied the game and its mathematics, and determined the best way to get to the highest level as quickly as possible. I figured that I could reach my (arbitrary) goal within 4 weeks; I just needed to log on every 4-5 hours (yes... even at night) and do some game maintenance. So, I got started. Now I'm about halfway there.
(Epril helps me out with the game maintenance... as she generally goes to sleep later than I do. I help Epril out by doing game maintenance for her when she is out during the day. It's too involved to discuss in this post.)
I was looking at a blog on Farmville, and the blog owner had posted their own idea about the best way to "level up" in the game. I posted a comment outlining my own plan, and how great it was. People were generally impressed and/or amazed that somebody would be that dedicated to a silly little game.
Anyway, a New York Times reporter who is writing a story on the phenomenon that is Farmville (with 16 million users, or something outlandish like that), read my comment, and decided that I would be a great example of a "Farmville Fanatic", and he got in touch with me. We chatted by phone for about 15 minutes about the game. As of now, that's that.
Other than that, my day was completely empty of anything other than work / sitting at the computer. Work sucked, by the way. Just one of those days. The pizza stand concurrently had it's worst day ever, selling half of the previous worst day's record. But, a friend from Cagayan De Oro stopped by on his way to the north of the island to pick up some pizza, which was nice. The Filipino version of "Christmas Break" started this week, and all of the students are out of school for about 3 weeks. I think that that had a lot to do with the decrease in sales; we are probably in for a slow period.
