Instead, we have spent some time (that's four hours of my life I won't get back) making Meez avatars. We started off with 2500 clothes points, but with hindsight I realise I should not have let the Football Fanatic dress herself first, as the remaining five of us now look like we have been kitted out from the charity shop.
Unfortunately for The Fixer and The Noise, the Meez site has temporarily gone down 'to install some upgrades' so we'll have to check back later to see what's new. It won't matter, because we can't afford anything anyway.
Worryingly, this lot have told me that my Meez is extremely lifelike.
Even more worryingly, I find myself agreeing with them. (Now there's a sentence I thought I'd never type).
