In Case You Were Worried, I'm Not A Vampire
Last week I went to the dentist for the first time in longer than I care to think about. Anyway, the good news was that I didn't need to have all my teeth taken out and replaced by something better, in fact the dentist said I have "good, strong teeth". Howe...

Robot Army!
Today I move one step closer to creating my robot army with which I will conquer the Earth! Okay, so they're a little on the small side, flat and made of foam, but it's a start. Big thanks to the people at  Yellow Moon  for providing me with  lots of things...
