To my mixed pleasure, some friends called me around seven and invited me over for dinner. It was good dinner, don’t get me wrong — but throughout the evening my thoughts were dominated by three distinctly anti-social questions:

  • What is the next milestone I need to hit for my Ludum Dare entry?
  • When is the earliest socially acceptable time for me to bow out and get to work on said entry?
  • Dammit, I’m eating during a Compo and I don’t have a camera.

Not all was lost: I worked out the details of my course editor over a glass or three of wine. And behold! An hour or so after my return, here it is:

If you're reading this, Celia, I'm only kidding. It was an /awesome/ dinner.

I’ve also settled on a visual style that doesn’t make me retch. It’s amazing what you can do with a bit of Photoshop glow and additive blending. Mmm, blending.

Oh, and the food I failed to photograph? Homemade (vegan) pizza. Mmm, despite the distinct lack of, well, anything I’d ordinarily put on a pizza. Since I don’t have a picture, can you just envision it? Maybe?

Ah, there you go. No, wait — you forgot the sweetcorn.

Mmm.
