I’ve been really, really f*cking grumpy lately. The reason, as many regular readers would have guessed by now is that I haven’t been sleeping. Again. This time, instead of the ghost of insomnia I have the weather to blame it on. I am what you’d call a light sleeper, even when it is that I actually get sleep – but I don’t know how in the heck [insert deity of choice] expects people to be able to sleep in a night-time furnace. I can’t sleep with either of the fans I have on, because their constant whirring and cyclical electrical buzzing keeps me as awake as the heat. A cold shower helped – but only as a temporary reprieve until the heat and humidity made me feel like I’d been the recipient of Satan’s golden shower.

So yesterday, I went to buy a portable air conditioner. It was ridiculously expensive, and ludicrously heavy – and after finally managing to get the thing upstairs and built I switched it on to experience the quiet cool ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BECAUSE THE GODDAMNED THING IS FAULTY. And then it started raining, leading to the miserable cold weather we’re experiencing today – making the whole exercise futile, and costly. The Flying Spaghetti Monster can be such a bastard.

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.
