Ahoy there! Ready to meet a new MindSnacker? We’ve been sailing the seven seas, and are excited to introduce you to Torri, an art intern at MindSnacks!
Hey Torri, we’re so glad to have you with us! How is your day going?
It was an eventful day at the office because Alice demonstrated all of the different ways to brew coffee!
That was DARN good coffee, and hot! At least, that’s how Special Agent Dale Cooper would have described his cup of joe. Now, I hate to get serious here, but what board game will never bore you?
Risk because games are long, emotions run high, and I tend to win a lot.
That’s quite a claim you’re making. All eyes will be on you the next time we’ve got a game of Risk going on. Watch out! But for now, if you were trapped in a TV show for a month, which would you choose and why?
“Cowboy Bebop” because it’s set in both the future and in space. My occupation as a bounty hunter would be a little juxtaposed to my personality, but I’d only be dodging bullets for a month. Plus, I’d get to make friends with a secretly genius welsh corgi – what’s there not to love?
You tell us! We love having animal companions. Although, try not to make Rigby too jealous of your new pal… Final question: what’s your go-to karaoke song?
Kiss by Prince!
Solid choice, we’ll keep that one in mind. And note to the Fun Team at MindSnacks – plan karaoke night in the near future! Well, that’s a wrap for today. Have a wonderful evening, and happy World Radio day to all!
Happy Mardi Gras from MindSnacks! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
And…we’re back!! Welcome to the first 2013 installment of Meet a MindSnacker! Did you miss us? Awww! Well, we sure missed you too!
Our team’s growing faster than a jackrabbit on a hot greasy griddle, and we’d like to introduce you to some of the cool folks who work here. Today we’re bringing you Yuki, one of the talented software engineers here at MindSnacks!
Hey Yuki! How is your day going?
We’d have to agree with you on that one, today is quite lovely. In addition to being quite lovely, you could have also described today as James Dean’s birthday or Kite Flying Day. But, quite lovely works quite well for us. So Yuki, besides MindSnacks, what’s the one app you can’t live without?
Probably the clock app because it keeps me on time, and it’s a must have for when I cook.
The simple, understated elegance of the clock app. It wakes us up and even helps us cook our food. Unless of course, you’re eating one of Alice’s delicious meals! But, we digress… Next question: if you had to select a theme song, what would it be?
If I had to choose one, it’d probably be the theme song from this show I use to watch as a kid called “Ultraman Seven.”
We had to do some research there, but that sounds very official. We’ll be sure to play it every time you enter a room! Now tell us, if you could create a new holiday, what would it be?
It would be called Friday, and it would be right before the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Saturday of every month.
You’re definitely onto something, Yuki… In fact, it looks like today is one of your so-called Fridays! Well folks, we hope you enjoy it, and make sure you have a blast this weekend too!
Oh, the things you’ll find in the MindSnacks supply closet…
If you give a MindSnacker a cookie…
Confession: we are really obsessed with cookies around here. Just the other day, culinary queen Alice taught us how to make and bake chocolate chip cookies of our very own! We learned how to cream butter and fold in flour, all necessary for making these scrumptious sweet treats! Now, how about that cookie dough… Shhhh!
Happy Holidays from MindSnacks!
The team celebrated by throwing an ugly holiday sweater and black tie party, complete with some sweet treats and fiery sips! We hope you’re enjoying the surprises we’ve recently shared and can’t wait to kick off 2013!

Brewing up only the best!Ted, our own home brewer (or should we say office brewer!) recently gave a talk about beer basics. We learned about the history of beer, how we can become self-proclaimed home-brewers, and all about beer varieties. Here’s to the third most popular drink in the world! Cheers!
What a sharp group!
This week, Alice taught us how to slice and dice herbs, vegetables, and garlic. Thanks for keeping our culinary skills on the cutting edge, Alice!
