Interesting day. I nearly found my yellow ass in prison in prison after being stopped at a road-block this morning. No, I didn’t have a dead Swedish hooker in the boot (That’s a trunk, for those of you Stars and stripes or maple leaves on your flags). Not this time, anyway.  No. But I did, the officer informed me,  have a collection of traffic violations the value of which exceed the gross capita of a small country. That, and my licence had expired…somewhere around two years ago. He also kindly informed that I was destined to spend the evening pleasuring some toothless holding cell inmate.  

My arsehole, you can easily understand, was clenched tighter than Joan Rivers’ face.  For some reason though – maybe officer (Sir!) liked my face (in a non-prison movie kind of way, hopefully!) or felt sorry for me, but he let me off with a nothing but a warning, even though he was in all likelihood looking for a greased palm.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we spent the rest of the day at the licencing department.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
