Yesterday was really nice. Everyone at LucasArts was incredibly complimentary about the win with emails coming at David and I from all corners of Lucasfilm wishing us well. At the end of the day, we got ambushed by the Thrillville team with some celebratory cakes and we hung out, talked about the award show, and ... well ... ate cake.
At the very end of the day, just as I was leaving, I thought "Hey, I'd better snap a photo of the award so that I can send it to my mom and dad/post in on oogu/etc." So, I took the award off of its perch on top of a filing cabinet (we haven't built a trophy case just yet) and took it into the studio to get a nice music-related shot of it.
Photo done, I decided it'd be nice to place it on top of the center speaker in our surround moniter set up so that it would be displayed nicely for anyone who came in. I'm still not quite sure what happened. Something about the top of the monitor and the bottom of the award didn't like each other. In a fraction of a second, the GANG award that we worked so many long hours for tumbled off of the monitor and smashed onto the studio floor.
Once again, the award is back on top of a filing cabinet. But this time, it's being hidden in my office because it's currently snapped in half.
I feel like a complete retard.
