I’ve started playing Echo Bazaar, a browser-based RPG set in ‘Fallen London’, an alternative past. There are the usual stats to build up, and ‘storylets’ are unlocked by the stats reaching certain levels. Cards are added to the ‘opportunities’ deck every seven minutes, as is the ability to perform actions. The story lines and artwork are quite appealing, and it used Twitter usernames to handle multiplayer aspects of the game. (It can also post to your Twitter stream, but this isn’t required for the games, and it makes it clear that it won’t post anything without your permission.) It all seems quite fun and appealing so far; I’ll see it it maintains my interest.

Andrew pumped air into Beth’s inflatable Dalek yesterday. It is standing by the dining room table looking at us. It’s about the same height as Beth, and is the “movie” style of Dalek, with big lights on its head and a pincer arm.

A pizza is cooking in the oven for tea tonight.

Kate finished decorating the Dalek just in time for the party. There
are a lot of noisy little girls in the house at the moment.

One advantage of working from home is that I've just had the privilege of scraping out a bowl of cake mixture. My considered opinion is that cake mixture is even nicer than cake.

Beth and [personal profile] kateaw are busy making a Dalek cake for Beth's fifth birthday tomorrow. It will be pink. Beth likes pink Dalek cakes.

Here is a piccie of her cake from a couple of years ago. If all goes well, tomorrow I'll post a photo of this year's creation.

Beth’s Dalek cake!
