Friday was the work Christmas party - it was a lot of fun but the only photos I got were of the fish tank and even those are on my phone which is charging in the other room so... the other thing that happened was that Skyrim finally arrived in the mail. Waiting for installation, patching on a connection that was behaving patchily and getting some basic until-the-next-patch-comes-out fixes put in I finished this book. A good read... it's also published under the name 'Eon'. I have to go find the second book next week!
Skyrim itself, once some control and graphics fixes were put in, has been good so far. I can't honestly say it's as quite up to the standard of Oblivion or Morrowind, but they do set one heck of a high bar. I'm looking forward to playing more of it, these games do tend to grow on me :)
