Trapped In A Room With A Zombie

Nitya & Steph getting psyched!


Real names are not required.

A few weeks ago the UX team and Visual Design team got together for an after-hours outing. We were split into two groups and then each group was trapped in a room with a zombie (and a mad professor). The room was filled with furniture and desks and drawers and cabinets and toolchests (many locked) as well as a lot of random looking stuff with odd numbers, clues and letters on them. And there was a zombie! A ZOMBIE chained to the wall. Every five minutes the chains came out another foot and if the zombie touched you, you were out.


Back: Ronald, Rob, Ben, Nick, Me, Steph. Front: Anandi, Nitya, Katie, Irene. Plus, the mad professor.


Act like a zombie!

The goal was to use teamwork! to figure out the clues and to unlock the combo lock that unlocks the key that unlocks the briefcase clue that unlocks the doorkey. Or something like that. All while dodging A ZOMBIE. You had one hour to get out of the room, basically. Our team did it. The other team? Not so much.

Afterwards we went to Exchequer, where Scott promptly ordered 20 Fireballs to take the edge off getting chased by A ZOMBIE.

Dallas and I were watching as Jackie Robinson West, a little league team from the south side of Chicago, won the national championship and then the next day as they took on South Korea for the world championship. They lost to Korea, but are still the US Little League champs, which is super cool. I did not plan to watch the parade and celebration today, which started on the south side and ended across from my office, but we had a planned lunch outing for Chris’s last day (on Friday) and got caught up in it all!
