What better fun is there than to appoint yourself Chief Resident Souvenir Creator?

Yep, you totally landed it. You interviewed yourself, you were offered the job and you accepted! Clearly a win-win.

Now it's time to let your mind run wild with all the possible things you can festively cram into a glorious repeat pattern representing where you live!

Badaboom! Helloooooooo, P-I-G-E-O-N! Fuggedaboutit! It's in the bag!
