4 January 2001 ... Rubik's Cubes
I've got this thing with Rubik's cubes. I love to play with them. I think I got my first cube when I was 8 or 9 or so. I would play with it and I would be able to solve one side and that was it. bah. So I took the thing apart and put it back together so it was solved. That was pretty fun: Seeing the insides and how everything worked. (One of my friends had a cube, too, and she would 'solve' it by taking off the colored stickers on each of the squares. That had a rather sacrilegious feel to me and I never did that.)

At some point, I got my hands on a book that showed how to solve the cube the right way. I thought that was the coolest thing in the world. I took some time and I memorized that book.

Give me a messed up cube... One messed up rubix cube

And about 7 minutes later, I've got it solved! Cheri solved the cube.

Then my dad got a ten sided rubik's. I stole it and started working on it as well. A very messed up ten sided rubix

I never had to take this one apart. The ten sided works on the same principles as the six sided cube. I can usually solve this one in less than 10 minutes. Cheri is a genius, a solved ten sided rubix

For Christmas, I got another one. This thing is supposed to turn into a cube... eeek, the Square One is all messed up

But this is as close as I've gotten to solving the thing. Guess I'll need to work on it some more. :) Pretty close.
