I just got a time of 1:59 without errors!! BUT the challenge isn’t complete yet because I need to qualify this time. This was my third attempt today and I was getting very frustrated with image recall giving me problems, so after spending over 5 seconds trying to recall an image, I would pause the timer, look it up, restart the timer, and then place the image in the locus and continue. I did this twice, so this isn’t a “true” time, but it is a time I would have achieved without hesitation (Actually, it would have been closer to 1:50.).
In light of this, I’m going to spend the next couple weeks or so focusing almost exclusively on recall speed, and then I’ll try again.
Also, just for kicks, here’s the narrative behind this run:
A bodysnatcher emerges from the ground, attacking a pug. Narrowly escaping, the pug picks up a sheet of corrugated metal and runs into an angel who then picks up a marker and draws a mustache on Charmander’s face. Perturbed, Charmander picks up a hole puncher and tries to clip off some of Tweety’s feathers, but Tweety makes her escape in a helicopter and then crashes into a pool, disturbing a kirin which runs into R2-D2 who hijacks a school bus. Being a droid without arms, R2-D2 quickly crashes the bus, causing an hourglass to fall over, which flings a chain into a led shield which slides into a gnome. Quite surprised, the gnome jumps on a brontosaurus’ back, but instead of running, the brontosaurus decides to snack on some sourdough bread, flipping over a lacrosse [thingy, whatever it’s called] that turns on a DOS computer. For whatever reason, there’s some yogurt on top of the computer that drips down into a pan. Stephanie (a character I made up) plays with the yogurt for a second and then wipes off her hands on Mrs Warp, who gets up and starts typing on a typewriter.
Even though this was a “qualified” time, I’m quite happy with it.
