Spoilt for Choice

Well, it’s 3pm on Christmas Day and it’s been a good one so far. My new ‘toys’ now include:

  1. The Ashes DVDs
  2. The Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories
  3. Rome Total War: Barbarian Invasion
  4. Dr Strangelove on DVD
  5. and Being Freddie

And like any kid on Christmas Day wondering which to ‘play’ with first, I’m trying to do all five.

So far I’ve fought a disastrous battle at Badon Hill, read Freddie’s introductory thank yous, watched the first day of the first test at Lord’s (get the bad bits out of the way), read the CT that Tutankhamun was assassinated and skipped to that great line: “Gentlemen! You can’t fight in here. This is the war room!”

Some kids never grow up eh? But I am showing some restraint: I haven’t got the retro Rubik’s Cube out of its box yet, a prezzie from Miss P. That cost me some sleepless nights first time round.

Nobody’s prefect. If you find any spelling mistakes or other errors in this post, please let me know by highlighting the text and pressing Ctrl+Enter.

    Merry Christmas to all the Parrots from The Sog Family.

    Hope you all have a Great 2006.

    How do you rate Rome Total War: Barbarian Invasion, I'm thinking of shelling out for it in the near future, along with FM2006?

    Sorry to be slow in replying Mike — I've hardly been on t'internet for the best part of a week, so wrapped up as I with other distractions.

    If you liked Rome: Total War, you'll love BI. I'm still getting to grips with both and have been sidetracked by Civ IV, my favouritist game of all time.
