We got the chessboard out but you playin' Whac-A-Mole

My copy of Tree of Tranquility arrived (late. Like everything I get. Oh, cruel world. What have I done to deserve this! Oh right, nothing. I don't need to tell you that life isn't fair, it doesn't care, it arbitrarily cuts off your air).

But wait, that's not what this entry is about, no, it's about how fucking awesome it is that the game came with this cow plushie! Aw, look at that cute li'l guy! Oh wait, I guess it's a girl by definition. Doesn't have an udder though. But that just makes it more cute!
