Things She Learned Again This Week

by liruandlegallyraven | 05:59 AM

1. She works best under pressure.

2. Time punctuality is very essential. A minute matters.

3. Jogging at dawn should have been today. But, really, should not sleep less than 3 hours beforehand. Sleep matters a lot.

4. Half-regrets. Just felt that. It was only either full or none for a few months now until today.

5. Don't half-ass anything.

6. Ain't getting any younger.

7. Mom has been officially trying to making her stay. Dreadful fact. She already knew this from the moment she was told by her sister to head for town more than 6 months ago when she only agreed to a 4 month stay. (A further story on this later.)

8. Take it slow this time.

9. Versatility. Time to check on it being her forte.

10. Definitely miss walking out to meet the sunrise. The feeling of dawn's cold crisp to the morning dew is just refreshing. Gotta make it right if this is the case.

11. Been intent on creating a future, but gold held back by the past and yet insisting on living in the now. But now, she realizes, it's more like convincing herself that she lives in the now. But, really, that's what you call hustling and you can't live with only one of it. A person lives with each -- the past, the present, and the future. But. There's a lot to learn and to act upon with. For now, it is now.

12. Focus woman. The two words that resonates every time she does. And it's very nice to actually hear it from someone else, these very words.

P.S. totally forgot about some appointments toda; better not get anymore listless than already now

"Treasure Hunt 2011: Alice in Wonderland"
Who Stole the Tarts?


Approximately 12 people attended, in three school teams of four with one in each team appointed by the organizers acting as a guide. Prior to the Hunt, each team will be given a sealed brown envelope, and quickly review the rules.  The object, to be reiterated, was to find the Queen's Tarts, hidden somewhere on the campus. All school teams will assemble at the starting point (UB Parkz`) 20 minutes before the game begins. The Hunt will begin at 8:30 in the morning. 

Clue One, "Down the Rabbit Hole":  On my signal, teams will be allowed to open their envelopes, which contained two items.  The first will be a sheet of paper that had a map of the campus on one side, and the text of the first clue on the other.  The Map showed all the buildings on the campus, a few of which had dots on them and a corresponding letter (see the map here). As explained prior to the Hunt, only the indicated buildings will have clues hidden in or around them.  This will be designed so that Teams wouldn't have to search through scores of building names to find the one a given clue referred to.  The clue itself (see the clue here) contained some text from Wonderland, and the message "Find the White Rabbit."  Below that will be the warning "Note:  don't let this clue Bug you or otherwise drive you crazy."

The other item in the envelope will be a copy of "The Little Nickel", a local classifieds-only newspaper.  Teams that looked for the White Rabbit - found in the Auto section, under Volkswagons - found an ad that read "WHITE RABBIT:  In good condition, but runs a little late.  Comes with ears, whiskers, pocket watch.  The next clue is in the eastern entryway to Bagley Hall."

Clue Two, "The Pool of Tears":  The second clue will be in the entrance to a building that abutted the campus fountain.  The fountain - which measures some 100 meters in diameter - had 10 stations around it:  five "A" stations and five "B" stations.  Clue two (see clue two here) directed each team to split up into two groups, with one group heading to Station A1 and the second group going to Station B1.  (See an example of a Station here.)  Once there, each group will send a signal to their partners, such as jumping up and down, or waving their arms.  Each group could then take the signal they received from their partners, consult a chart, and determine what Station they should next visit.  After each pair of groups had visited five Stations apiece, the final signals indicated the location of the third clue.

This clue will be designed to be relatively easy, but a funny thing happened on the way to the fountain ... It seems that the aforementioned football game ended just minutes before the first team arrived at the location, so as teams attempted to send signals back and forth across the fountain, hundreds and hundreds of football fans streamed by, looking on in bewilderment.  My only regret is that I was not there to see this debacle.

Clue Three "Alice and the Caterpillar":  The third clue (see the third clue here) will be the longest of the bunch.  The sheet contained 50 pairs of contradictory statements, the statements on the left attributed to Alice and the ones on the right coming from the Caterpillar.  At the bottom of the page were seven digital eights, with a dash between the third digit and the fourth (888-8888).  Each segment of the digits had a number that corresponded with one of the statement pairs.  So, for each pair, a team had to decide which statement was correct.  If Alice's statement will be correct, the appropriate segment will be left blank, but if the Caterpillar's statement will be correct the segment should be colored in.  After all the correct segments will be filled in, a seven-digit phone number will be shown, which could be called to get the next clue.

Some teams got really stuck on this one, and at least one team called nearly a dozen wrong numbers before getting the right one.  Other teams breezed through this one with relative ease.  Go figure.

Clue Four, "The Cheshire Cat":  This clue (see clue four here) had a mediocre puzzle but a great gimmick.  The puzzle will simply to find the words that fit the supplied definitions and contained the letters "G - R - I - N" (ex:  "Football field" = "GridIroN").  Certain letters in the answers will be circled, and when these letters will be dropped they spelled out where the team will to take the clue.  When teams went to the indicated location, they had to go into a small, darken area that will be lit with a black light.  The black light caused a previously invisible message that was written on the clue to appear and tell them where to find the fifth clue.  It also caused the smile in the Cheshire Cat picture to stand out (as it was highlighted with the ultrviolet ink), while the rest of it's body faded away in the dark.

Clue Five, "The Mad Tea Party":  This will be a favorite puzzle (see clue five here), but I think I will be in the minority.  The clue will be posted on a locker that will be sealed with a combination lock.  The solution to the puzzle gave the combination for opening the lock.  Many teams struggled with this one, but those who had prior experience with logic problems got it with 10 minutes or so.  One team actually figured out how to pick the lock, which I consider to be just as valid a solution as solving the puzzle.

Clue Six, "Who Stole the Tarts?":  The final clue will be a ziplock bag, containing a sheet and a 150 piece jigsaw puzzle (see the assembled jigsaw puzzle here).  The puzzle, when assembled, showed a map identical to the map teams will be given at the start of the hunt, except that next to the dots on the buildings there will be Playing Cards instead of letters.  On the other sheet will be a message in code:  instead of being writing in letters, it as written in Playing Cards (final clue).  After assembling the puzzle, teams could crack the code by looking at each Playing Card in the message, referring to the location on that playing card on the jigsaw map, and then substituting the letter that appeared in the corresponding location on the first map.  The message read:

Connect the spades
Connect the hearts
And you'll find out
Who stole the tarts!

Players who then referred to the jigsaw map again saw that there will be only two spades on the whole map, and only two hearts.  When the spades will be connected and the hearts will be connected, the result will be a big X, which centered on the location (UB Park) where the tarts will be hidden.



Clue # 1: Down the Rabbit Hole

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice 'without pictures or conversation?'

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, 'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

To discover the next clue:

Find the White Rabbit!

(Note:  Don’t let this clue drive you crazy, or otherwise bug you.)

It’s a who and a what and a where in a hie. Use the eyes. It’s a word. Use the lips. Number eleven will do.







Clue # 2: The Pool of Tears

After a time Alice heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, 'Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!' Alice felt so desperate that she was ready to ask help of any one; so, when the Rabbit came near her, she began, in a low, timid voice, 'If you please, sir--' The Rabbit started violently, dropped the white kid gloves and the fan, and skurried away into the darkness as hard as he could go.

Alice took up the fan and gloves, and, as the hall was very hot, she kept fanning herself all the time she went on talking: 'Dear, dear! How queer everything is to-day!”  As she said this she looked down at her hands, and was surprised to see that she had put on one of the Rabbit's little white kid gloves while she was talking. 'How can I have done that?' she thought. 'I must be growing small again.' She got up and went to the table to measure herself by it, and found that, as nearly as she could guess, she was now about two feet high, and was going on shrinking rapidly: she soon found out that the cause of this was the fan she was holding, and she dropped it hastily, just in time to avoid shrinking away altogether.

'That was a narrow escape!' said Alice, a good deal frightened at the sudden change, but very glad to find herself still in existence;   As she said these words her foot slipped, and in another moment, splash! she was up to her chin in salt water. Her first idea was that she had somehow fallen into the sea, however she soon made out that she was in the pool of tears which she had wept when she was nine feet high.

'I wish I hadn't cried so much!' said Alice, as she swam about, trying to find her way out. 'I shall be punished for it now, I suppose, by being drowned in my own tears! That will be a queer thing, to be sure! However, everything is queer to-day.”

To find the next clue
Answer the jigsaw puzzle. Define what type of cell.

And you will receive the next location




Clue # 3: Alice and the Caterpillar

'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I--I hardly know, sir, just at  present --  at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

What do you mean by that?' said the Caterpillar sternly. 'Explain yourself!'

'I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, sir' said Alice, 'because I'm not myself, you see.'

'I don't see,' said the Caterpillar.

'I'm afraid I can't put it more clearly,' Alice replied very politely, 'for I can't understand it myself to begin with;  and being so  many different sizes in a day is very confusing.'

'It isn't,' said the Caterpillar.

'Well, perhaps you haven't found it so yet,' said Alice; 'but when you have to turn into a chrysalis--you will  some day,  you know--and then after that into a butterfly, I should think you'll feel it a little queer, won't you?'

'Not a bit,' said the Caterpillar.

'Well, perhaps your feelings may be different,' said Alice;  all I know is, it would feel very queer to me.'

'What size do you want to be?' it asked.

'Oh, I'm not particular as to size,' Alice hastily replied; 'only one doesn't like changing so often, you know.'

'I don't know,' said the Caterpillar.

Alice said nothing: she had never been so much contradicted in her life before, and she felt that she was losing
her temper.

Clue # 4: The Cheshire Cat


Alice tried another question. 'What sort of people live about here?'

'In that direction,' the Cat said, waving its right paw round, 'lives a Hatter: and in that direction,' waving the other paw, 'lives a March Hare.  Visit either you like: they're both mad.'

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.

'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

'You must be, or you wouldn't have come here,' said the Cat, and vanished.

Alice was not much surprised at this, she was getting so used to queer things happening. While she was looking at the place where it had been, it suddenly appeared again.

'I wish you wouldn't keep appearing and vanishing so suddenly: you make one quite giddy,' said Alice.

'All right,' said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end  of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone

'Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin,' thought Alice; 'but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!'
















Each of these words has faded away, leaving only a "grin" behind.








SLOPE: GR_ _ I _N_





ITCHY NOSE:  _  _O _ G _  _  R _ I N _  _  _  _










Clue # 5: A Mad Tea Party

There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it. A Dormouse was fast asleep, and the other  were using it as a cushion resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head.

'Very uncomfortable for the Dormouse,'  thought Alice; 'only, as it's asleep, I suppose it doesn't mind.'

The table was a large one, but they cried out 'No room! No room!' when they saw Alice coming.

'There's plenty of room!' said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair.

'Have some wine,' the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.

Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. 'I don't see any wine,' she remarked.

'There isn't any,' said the March Hare.

'Then it wasn't very civil of you to offer it,' said Alice angrily.

'It wasn't very civil of you to sit down without being invited,' said the March Hare.

'I didn't know it was your table,' said Alice; 'it's laid for a great many more than three.'

'I want a clean cup,' said the Hatter abruptly 'let's all move.'

Everyone moved on as he spoke. The Hatter was the only one who got any advantage from the change, and Alice was a good deal worse off than before.

The Mad Tea Party table is round, and has eight chairs, one at each of the cardinal and intermediate directions (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW) like so:

Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse and the March Hare are seated in the chairs at the cardinal directions (Alice is seated in the South. The others are sitting in the North, East, and West chairs, not necessarily in that order).

The Mad Hatter suddenly proposes that everyone move, so the following actions take place in the following order:

  1. Alice moves to the seat directly between the Mad Hatter and the March Hare;
  2. Then the Mad Hatter moves to the seat directly between the Dormouse and the March Hare;
  3. Then the Dormouse moves to the seat clockwise from the chair the Mad Hatter just vacated;
  4. Then the March Hare moves to the Southeastern chair.


Determine the seating arrangement. And you’ll find the next clue.











Clue # 6: Who Stole the Tarts?

The King and Queen of Hearts were seated on their throne when they arrived, with a great crowd assembled about them--all sorts of little birds and beasts, as well as the whole pack of cards.  'I wish they'd get the trial done,' Alice thought, 'and hand round the refreshments!' But there seemed to be no chance of this, so she began looking at everything about her, to pass away the time.

The judge, by the way, was the King; and as he wore his crown over the wig, he did not look at all comfortable, and it was certainly not becoming.

'Consider your verdict,' the King said to the jury.

'No, no!' said the Queen. 'Sentence first -- verdict afterwards.'


The thief has all the “marks”!
