I don’t know whether this was in direct response to my tweet or not, but just look what Aperture Science sent me for Valentine’s Day!
That’s my favorite of dozens of shots. Yeah, it’s safe to say I really dig flowers. And they were a very nice surprise, as I certainly wasn’t expecting anything for Valentine’s Day but the Blue Canary Nightlight I’d bought myself. And the card made me laugh, too. I still need to get a better picture of it, but you can find a printable version here… I got the dopamine one.
I asked the guy who introduced me to Portal (which I still need to finish, incidentally!) if he might know who sent them. His response: “I’m pretty sure the flowers are part of a malevolent social experiment by a twisted AI, but it’s always hard to tell with these things.” Well, twisted AI or not, the flowers are lovely. 🙂
