The Tixie comes in from observing the beautiful late summer/early autumn
day, and says:

Today in an undisclosed year, our fellow listie Gwynne Powell was born!
Gwynne, for your birthday, you get to tour MVK Enterprises' newest project,
the raised-and-renovated old Impsec building.  You'll get to shudder at the
ghastly architecture, and probably agree that the architect was a few
bricks shy of a load, if not downright doolally.

Inside, you can wonder at the displays set up, and contemplate the taste
with which Mark and his design team have turned humdrum offices into
inviting nooks.  Down in the basement, you can shudder at the recreated
cells, and at the waxwork figures of Mad Yuri and his goon squad.

Afterwards, you will be treated to dinner at Vorkosigan House, cooked by Ma
Kosti herself.  Miles is off doing Auditorial things, but you will get to
meet  his children and talk with the Count and Countess, who're at  home
for some Council-of-Counts business.  Ivan sends his regards, but he's
off-planet.

Happy birthday!
