All In A Day’s Work

Getting up from the bench nearest the cell in Militia HQ, I decided to do something a bit more productive than just sitting and watching Underby look like a beaten worm. Finding paper and a pen on the desk I scrawled out a quick list of tasks that needed to be accomplished throughout the day.

To Do:
[*]Arrest Underby Guard Underby
[*]Cook more blasted buttered porridge
[*]Assist in preparing reports and evidence surrounding the Pip/Underby incident
[*]Meditate at the Cathedral
[*]Confirm that Star is still alive and report back to Jed
[*]Patrol town, re-reading all of the graffiti and searching for any signs of Blondie or Martians
[*]Relax by pub-hopping with friends, sipping a mug of hot cocoa

((What does your list look like these days?))
