    I assume a few of you have heard of Tunnels and Trolls, and maybe a couple of you played it, even though it was shadowed by Dungeons and Dragons. I recently started playing, have a level 5 dwarf wizard (doesn't make much sense in a roleplaying way, but I came up with a little background for him: he's basically an outcast from the dwarven society for casting destructive magic) named Galiot. I found this nifty T&T story, if you want to read it all - it's long!

    What was more gross was getting out my led flashlight and discovering i had these nasty things in the back of my mouth. I've experienced them before and thought it was maybe some really old stuff somehow stuck in my teeth! They smell putrid. I'm guessing alot of people have them and have no idea.

    I've just finished reading Austerlitz. It's the first book I've read by Sebald. I cameby Sebald via mentions in interviews of Javier Marias, who admires his novels. It's interesting to note the similarities in their styles. They both specialise in lengthy, elaborate sentences seemingly consisting of multiple clauses strung together. Sebald intersperses images through his narrative in a manner that sometimes reminds me of the sudden intrusion of photographs into Marias' All Souls, and his essay o

As I watched it, I realised that I had, yet again, seemingly made a wrong assumption about someone's status as a real person - somehow I had previously filed Walter Mitty in the 'real people' section of my brain.
    In my defense, I had never heard of the story, only heard people refer to Walter Mitty in movies and on TV. To be honest, if you'd asked me a week ago who Walter was, I would have guess
