Turnips. Thousands of them surround you. They are all shapes and sizes, colours and unfortunately odours. There may even be a swede or two sneaking in on the sly. This is due to a fascination with the word 'turnip' but not an actual like for said root. It does have the most delicious feel when you say it, which is unfortunately not matched by the taste when consuming them.

When you finally get round/over/tunnel under/eat your way through the nutritious and delicious pile you are confronted with a wall. It is a gothic kind of wall, the type with disintegrating mortar, perhaps a little damp and moss. It has two equally impressive candles and a shrine to the past obviously.

Next to the shrine is a chair. It is one of those office chairs that someone such as I dreams about. It has levers. It goes up, down, round and round, back as well as through several dimensions. It keeps me busy for hours, though if you spin round too fast, you fly off the shiny leather to smack against aforementioned turnips. This much I know, but never learn: turnips great to say, but hurt like hell.

This space appears to be curiously free of bells and whistles. If I was witty, I would now add some as an ironic postscript. I'm not, so I won't.

Please note: This is a very personable space and at times be a bit grumpy. Please take it with a pinch of salt: it's bark is worse than it's bite.
