This is what I can do if I am not distracted by the likes of Facebook or girls (I shan't divulge in the latter).

The New Year party was pretty sweet compared to most years. I was with a few mates in Nuneaton of all places (no offence, but come on!) at a sports and social club. Everyone dressed up: I was Willy Wonka, Lee was Freddie Mercury and Sam was a non convincing Fresh Prince of Bel Air. There was also an expected Smurf, David Brent from the Office, Jay from the Inbetweeners and a Jazzy Jeff.

in Waterstones, I discovered the true origin of Bucky O'Hare.

One final addition to my 2012 attitude will be the introduction to Dungeons and Dragons. Now, without you all being sceptical let me persuade you to overlook the stereotypical geeky demeanour surrounding this game and check out the awesomeness that is D&D. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to begin with but, after two sessions and the completion of my first quest, my character Lobo Vaçade (a half elven Ranger) is now at level two and has a base attack of +5 with his composite Longbow. I have modelled Lobo from parts of a Wood Elf set and also sculpted his trademark afro. He has slain 1 crow, 1 panther and a Dwarf named Svingold.

I know a few people who play this game and now that Lobo has completed his first quest he can join up with other teams or do a solo quest to level up and improve his fighting and survival skills. I was introduced to this game via my good friend Peter Kitson and his dear brother. Coincidentally they are the stars of my random video of the month which is somewhere at the bottom of this blog post. They are also fighting in a recent Photoshop picture I edited together. They do get around!
