In Other News – November 16, 2010

Our beleaguered Nick is fraught with internetlessness, a terrible affliction generally brought about by the Horribilis Telkomis virus. Its symptoms include cold sweats, extreme jitteriness, difficulty concentrating and general restlessness. Symptomatic relief is provided by taking a dose of 3G at least every 4 hours. In rare, extreme cases, actually going outside to experience the real world is prescribed.

Anyway, despite me being banned from doing so, duty has once again fallen on me to do today’s ION. Regrettably, I don’t have any tales of my testicular endeavours to regale this time, nor am I brimming with enthusiasm. I am, today, incredibly grumpy. My perpetual nemesis, the multi-skulled Hydra named insomnia has once again reared its ugly heads.

In a just and equitable world I would lay my head on the pillow, Instantly fall asleep and be fellated for a solid eight hours by the lovely Candice Swanepoel (above), to awake the next morning, refreshed and ready to face the day. Perhaps whistling. Instead, I stared at a curtain for 7 solid hours.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because I’ve been curled up in the foetal position under my desk.

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.
