I have been trying to solve Sudoku puzzles for the past few days. So far, i haven’t suceeded in actually completing one. After the initial flashes of brilliance (or so I thought), I’d suddenly discover that I made a mistake. I’d ditch it, of course… too pissed off to actually try to track where it started to go wrong.
(One particular puzzle I slaved over caused a nightmare. I dreamt I was the head of the Yakuza and invited my influential underlings to an out-of-town lunch after which I opened fire in the dining room, dumped them on the table, and told their chauffeurs to go home to their wives. My bad.)
Last night, for some reason, I had one of those sudden life-changing realizations. Funny because it happened while I was sleepy and bored out of my mind while testing the new optical mouse on James the laptop. And then… CLICK! It happened. Just like that.
My initial reaction was: =O. Then: O_o. Then +__+.
It was so shocking that I spent the next hour and a half trying to understand what exactly happened. Steffi, you have rejoined the human race.
I’d post pictures, but I don’t think I can right now.
