If everyone in Skyrim was on drugs....

Last night Dr Wheel and I indulged in Geek Bonding. What is Geek Bonding in the Wheel/Tats household? Well, it could be any one of a number of things but on this occasion it was co-operative Torchlight 2.

I've also progressed the main plotline in Skyrim by infiltrating the Thalmor Embassy. You lose all your gear when you go in, and I didn't have the foresight to give anything to the spy dude to smuggle in for me, so I did the first part with nothing, dressed in a silly frock. Then I fireballed a wizard and stole his clothes and potions because my need was greater, left him lying there in his undies with his head jammed in a door, and it was plain sailing from there. Don't mess with my Breton, fuckers. She has no mercy.

And to demonstrate that I don't just spend my life playing video games, um.. nope. I got nothing.
