After spending way too much time going back through xkcd's archives (it must have been at least 2 or three hours... I just lose time whenever I go near a xkcd link) I finished reading "Monstrous Regiment" and am now desperate to read "Night Watch," but alas I can't seem to locate my copy.
I have recently been hiding away from the real by spending a lot of time in the world of Azeroth. This will be countered this weekend when I spend some quality time with good friends in Zurich. There will be merriment and drinking and I shall walk from the sun to the end of the solar system (and may take pictures).
Happy New Year.
