Woot! I'm all caught up! (Woot's actually an interesting choice of words right now... seeing as there's a Woot-Off going on! Check it out here. If there aren't little siren lights around the product picture... you missed it :(. Woot-offs are a college student's dream; they have awesome stuff for cheap. Read what Wikipedia says here.) Sorry for the delay between updates; it's been a really busy week with all the awesome stuff we've been doing!

For any new readers, make sure to click Read More at the bottom of each day's update; usually there's more to see "after the break"!

Today was fairly standard as far as project/lecture times go. Tonight we had indoor soccer down in the SRC, which was a blast. A lot of students have noticed that for a "nerd" camp, a lot of people here are actually pretty competitive with regards to athletics. It's the same way during the school year (we actually have different IM leagues for different groups of people... A league is for the competitive guys, C league is for the people who just want to have some fun during the week, and B league is right in between). The teams ended up pretty fair as well: at least 3 of the teams had 1 win and 1 loss at the end of the day today. Detailed IM results to come at the end of the week!

Massive picture update for this week coming tomorrow (Thursday)!

 

After IMs (and showers; we're big fans of those!), all the monkeys came out for Casino Night in the Union, where they "gambled" (with chips, no money involved) in games of Blackjack, Roulette, and Texas Hold' Em Poker. At the end of the night there was a drawing for prizes ranging from free IM points to IBC Root Beer to Glee's Regionals CD and 300 (the movie). At the end of the night, and in true Rose-Hulman fashion, one incredibly lucky Catamonkey was awarded his very own Yard-o-beef summer sausage (not to be consumed in one sitting!).

Midnight madness was scheduled to be s'mores on Speed Beach, but inclement weather washed out those plans :(.
