Interestingly, another king has assassinated one of the three who are attacking us, so they'll get a new king. We're also pretty sure we have a spy. So now would be a good time to feed some disinformation through the suspected spy, and also by speaking directly to the new king to try and make a gap in their alliance. Does anyone know how to go about making gaps in enemy alliances?
Meanwhile, in real life, I'm confronted by the following mystery: The big wall clock in my bedroom is almost exactly an hour fast. On monday I got up an hour early, by that clock, called Anastasia who remarked that I was up early, and went to work an hour early when I finally discovered what time it was. So how did that happen? I can only think of the following:
- The clock has been getting fast over several days and I never paid attention before.
- Someone has entered by flat through the fire escape, stepped over the baby cot that blocks the window, adjusted the clock Amelie-style, and went away.
- I sleepwalk and sleep-adjust clocks.
- The clock has developed a weird fault that made it gain an hour suddenly.
