I’ve moaned – probably on more than once occasion – about my seemingly perpetual inability to fall asleep. It’s a terrible thing, getting at most 2 hours of sleep a night, mostly because it dulls my wit and makes me unnecessarily grumpy; instead of the naturally charming, delightful person I otherwise am. In my adolescence this sort of insomnia lead, mostly, to chafed palms and exhausted tissue supplies – but now that I’m settled down, older, and wiser it mostly results in me tapping the missus’ shoulder to see if she’s awake.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we’ve been counting sheep. Right now, I’m up to 1,784,738,199. Hmm…sexy, sexy sheep.

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.
