Amusement

I've borrowed a computer game off Rose's son. It's called Assassin's creed II, and is set in Renaissance Italy.

I haven't got very far through it yet, but then I'm not paying much attention to the plot. It's fun just wandering around the place and climbing over famous buildings.

The plot's not without its own amusement though. It involves a fair bit of cheesy butchering of history. I've met Leonardo da Vinci – apparently at some stage you fly in his flying machine – and tried to foil the Pazzi conspiracy.

It's gloriously silly.

Speaking of cheesy silliness, we're off to watch The clash of the Titans in 3D now.

That is very strange. I don't see how you could've failed to. It's integral to the plot.
