Meanwhile, The Kid gave me a computer game for Christmas. It's an RPG only instead of being based around killing monsters it's based around three day eventing. It's surprisingly fun, even if it is aimed at people in a younger age group than me.

Also, in week 2 you get given a foal, which by some quirk of the graphics, loses its eyeballs every time it tosses its head. They sort of follow it around like they're on stalks before catching up when the foal stops. It's.. disturbing. When I get a decent screenshot of this I'll show you.
And today, two more cloaks bit the dust. Tats, official cloakmaker to the Illuminati.
