Awkward moment at supermarket checkout, when I suddenly felt my particular combination of purchases required an explanation. Attempted to convey the (perfectly legitimate!) reasons behind the purchases, but failed, and just ended up looking greedy and weird :-(

Got a score of minus 85,425 on one level of #Hitman #Absolution last night (while getting the final playstyle I needed). Unfortunately, the collateral damage was much higher than I anticipated. Ooops ;-)

AC2 is free on xbox this week. Just downloaded it, despite the fact that I have owned it on disk for several years but have never got round to playing it. My rationale is that downloading it will somehow change that :-/

Tonight I will be finishing Torchlight, a cute old-school hack'n'slash RPG. My character is a very butch man, who looks like he belongs in a battle-ready version of the Village People.

Ridiculous end to a Friday: got home to discover someone failed to deliver 3 GIANT boxes of incontinence pads to our building by mistake (they had the wrong address!!) so they've just left them on our doorstep!!!! FFS!!!!!!! I LITERALLY don't understand how these things happen :-(

Rushed to buy a "thank you" card on Friday. It's only now I'm writing it that I've just seen the inside. *ugh*
