Escape Room: Davy Jones’ Locker

[COVID Day Five Hundred Sixty Eight]

I did the second! Ever! Escape! Room! Stream! From AMERICA! Tonight!

I’m just as excited as you are.


A 90 min escape room in a box. This is an interactive box with various puzzles, which have to be solved one after the other to open the box.

In other words, this is an Escape Room in a handy format!

There is nothing based on randomness, but only on logical decisions.

Escape Room: Schrödingers Cat

[COVID Day Five Hundred Sixty One]

I seriously can’t believe this but this is my first escape room stream in America. And I haven’t done an escape room / game night in months.

And First Minion totally crashed.

And if you listen not that carefully at all, you can totally hear all three minions screaming their bloody heads off before my mic decided to leave the building.

So I sound a bit like an ASMR video initially but then switch to the Bose headphones / mic cause Yeti Blue didn’t want to game.

Overall I’m super impressed with this game.

I admit I have quite a bit of bias for physical games and I absolutely cannot wait to get back into actual rooms, so this was definitely closer to an actual escape room.

And I’m totally buying all the rest of their games.

I oh so totally CANNOT wait for him to let go of that three bottles of milk at night habit.

Yes, I know it’s up to me to wean him.

It’s hard.

I have other priorities, damnit.

You know we just moved from across the pond, right?



Normally when I wake up in the morning, it’s this whirlwind of productivity – catching up on email, yoga and strength training and a long walk, studying Swedish and Japanese and Dutch, meditation, morning pages and a couple of cups of tea.

Sometimes I catch up on my shopping.

And nothing else.

[Dutch Lock Down Day Five Hundred Fifty Six]

I absolutely LOVED this song when it came out and had no idea how much it messed with my perception of mental illness growing up.

But, damn, the bass is incredible.

Thx, Rihanna.


Hung Up

[Dutch Lock Down Day Five Hundred Fifty Three]

Wait, did I just catch up?!?

Are we caught up?? ?


That was a whole hell of a lot of music, y’all. But also I moved across the ocean, eh? Solid excuses are solid.

This one’s by Madonna. Cause #Madonna

Every little thing that you say or do
I’m hung up
I’m hung up on you
