'I fell asleep reading,' wrote Toronto-based Asterix fan Jackson Dowler in a cute letter of apology to his local library. The 8 year old was mortified to wake up and realise his borrowed comic had fallen from his bed and become damaged. Instead of slapping on some sticky-tape and wiping his fingerprints from the cover (like any normal kid), Jackson wrote the following note:
It says 'I am sorry that a page ripped when it fell out of my bunk when I fell asleep reading. It won't happen again. I'm sorry, from Jackson.'
The library (the Main Street branch of the Toronto Public Library) posted the note on Facebook and the response was a massive, collective 'aww!'
So universal was the acclaim for the little bookworm that the library tracked him down and lavished him with books.
What an adorable little tyke!

I've started playing the free online browser-based game 'Asterix and Friends'. My first impressions are in the above video.
The game is free to play, but with the option of paying for resources that make it easier. You start in a village ruined by Roman attacks and must gather wood, straw, and stone to put it back together.
As you rebuild your village, its inhabitants return. They look exactly like the villagers from the Asterix books, so the old man who appears is basically Geriatrix. He gives you quests that guide you towards goals.
I have some quibbles with it at the moment (as you'll see in the video) but it does have a lot of the charm of the original comics and I'm going to persevere with it.
