Same here, but then I think 'Well, at least I don't have to perform minor surgery on myself in the bathroom!'
It's not that bad.
Any takers on the event? Bonus points if the map looks treasurehunt/adventure style.
Does this have to be hand drawn / computer-generated? I know the hard part is making sure the file size is small enough to upload.
It could be either, you could make it out of legos, old maps, or whatever you want, we just need a picture.
