Globalization themed holiday ornament

The entry fee to Nogfest this year was to bring a holiday ornament for the hosts to place on their tree. So for a study break this week I walked over to K-Mart and purchased a lot of arts & crafts related items:

  • 40 Pipe Cleaners of a variety of colors
  • Popsicle sticks of a variety of colors
  • 1 Santa Clause village figurine
  • 9 colors variety of Crayola Glitter Glue
  • 1 225mL Elmer's Glue

After I came up with an idea I also printed out a small map of the world. In the end, I came up with the following ornament.

The caption reads: "Santa, flattening the world since 280 CE"

Me with the ornament

Nogfest turned out the be a blast and a great way to say by to the people who will be departing as soon as they are done with their finals. On Saturday I played my first game of racquetball in about 4 years, it was very exciting but left little doubt that I would be sore the next morning. In the evening I went with Craig and Katie over to see Rent at some theater in Ostego. I have never seen the play but nonetheless enjoyed the film. However, as Craig mentioned please go see it at a state of the art theater, one speaker audio combined with random stoppage of the film about 20min in was very disturbing.

Today, as with every non-used moment of my life for the past week, I have been studying for finals. I even took flash cards to Katie's concert and studied during the intermission. As usual the concert was amazing so I guess I missed the boat and should have been a music major.
