Not Martha

photo: sometimes I wish doing errands was more like playing video games

the top of the elevator shaft, angular with some blank white spaces

This is the housing for the top of the elevators and stairs on the roof of the parking garage at a Target store nearby. But all I can see is a level in Portal 2.

    I’ll have to show this to my husband and see if he sees the same thing. He has been playing that a lot (I’m still playing Plants v. Zombies).

    You are not alone. The grey cinder blocks in my apartment complex parking garage are being painted white, one random patch at a time.

    Haha! My boyfriend got me into portal and I just beat the original game so I can totally see where you’re coming from.

    Lauren – Ha!

    Brianne – The second one expands the scope, it’s seriously awesome.

    Ha I knew you were awesome. But I didn’t know you were THIS awesome. =)

    Oh my god, you are absolutely right. I’m staring at it now, thinking, “Okay, the white lunar goo means I can put the first portal here… Then I can put the second portal there, jump through, then build up momentum before I shoot another portal there and fly through it over the gap…”

    I love that game so much!

    God I love you! That is about that best comment I have read tonight!

    Looks like Target Northgate! We go there all the time. I kinda dig the multi-levels.

    Magpie – It is! Actually the entire mall there is like a level of Portal. I sort of want to take more pictures when nobody is there.

    What an awesome shot! Who said errands needed to be boring :)

    My girlfriend reads your blog all the time and she sent me this! So true, it’s all I see. I just got her into playing Portal 2! She thoroughly enjoys it.

    I might have to check out your blog now.

    Why, yes it is! Get to the next level! It’s either a ‘penney’s or a Walmart platform! ;)

    Yes. That is exactly what that is. Uh-mazing.

    In response to the title of this post… have you seen this? http://www.joystiq.com/2010/07/09/epic-win-turns-everyday-chores-into-a-game/

    I haven’t tried it yet, but it seemed like a perfectly reasonable way to get kids/roommates to do chores. :)
