5000 creative kids – odyssey of the mind

In Ames Iowa where all the food is white or at best yellow with occassional red smears from tomato sause. Odyssey of the Mind has about 800 teams in the World Competition this year including teams from Kazakstan and from Cuba (Guantanamo Bay the accouncer quickly noted without irony). Irony on the part of the adults is in short supply but in the skits and problem solving by the kids there is plenty of irony, pun and wit.
Dorm life is no life however. Terrible coffee and no wireless on the 8th floor, where we are staying. I gave my ethernet cable away last trip saying “hey I haven’t used this in two years. you can have it.” Now I’m looking for a computer store in Ames ;-> or :-< Ames lovely Cafe Diem is a good second home tho.
