1. Lily is the human and I am the dog for a short while. I snore loudly and hoof her while she looks unimpressed: we’re playing our roles perfectly.

2. Another day of tiling but it finishes on a high note: the space at the back of the kitchen is exactly three tiles wide.

3. The worst thing about playing a “massively multiplayer online role playing game” is, often, the “massively multiplayer” bit: people insulting others during team games and the like. But sometimes, all those people go away and we group of strangers work together perfectly. For two battlegrounds in a row (AV and BfG for fellow WoW geeks), we fight the good fight and deftly capture nodes, and no one calls anyone else names.
