Good news, everyone! If you didn’t read that with a Farnsworth accent, kindly hand in your geek card. But really, there IS good news! It seems my sleeping pattern has resumed to normal for the time being- which means I’m far less grumpy, and altogether more charming. Sleep, however, also means dreams – and my current ones are…well, odd. Last night I dreamt I was invited to a fancy buffet upon a Victorian era passenger ship by the Queen herself (probably because of that aforementioned charm). I can quite recall, but for some reason the ship was under duress and soon to capsize. I had to save the Queen from going overboard – and the only way that I seemed to be able to, the only thing that made sense, was to grab her by the tits.

So I saved the Queen – but once on land she summarily kicked me in the junk. Here’s the news we didn’t post because we’ve all be holding our crown jewels.

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.
