Yesterday I spent a very enjoyable afternoon playing Mario Kart 8 with a group of friends and, after five hours of racing, one person emerged as the overall victor. That person was me. I AM THE QUEEN OF MARIO KART!
I even got a lovely trophy to celebrate my accomplishment:
Yes, I am looking ever so slightly psychotic there. Possibly because it's wine. Possibly because I'd been playing Mario Kart for five hours and had lost all sense of reason. Either way, it is now sitting beside me and will soon be taking pride of place somewhere in my house so I can show it off at every opportunity.
It's a shame I couldn't have Mario Karted my way home today. A tree on the line meant delays to one of my trains, which meant I missed my connection and had to hang around 45 minutes for another one, which meant I got home about an hour and a half later than I had planned. But it's all good. Could have been worse. While I was at the station waiting to hear about my delayed train I also heard "We're sorry to announce that the 13:51 service to London Paddington is delayed by approximately 109 minutes." So it's a good thing I wasn't going to London Paddington.
