Here we are, spending the evening in the dungeons of VORRUTYER HORROR HOUSE, 
and celebrating Carol Cooper's birthday. The staff here has cleverly converted 
the place into a spa -- the racks and various stretching devices look like 
they'd inflict hideous pain, but no. They give a pleasant stretch, and relieve 
the gentle aches. The most torturous device here is the treadmill that has a 
fake spinning log saw at the front of it, but only volunteers get to ride that 
ride -- and even they can jump off at any time. The dunking station is 
actually quite pleasantly warm -- several of us roll up our trousers and enjoy 
a nice foot bath. 

After that refreshing break, we take the elevator up to the Main Dining Hall, 
and enjoy a boar feast, with all of the trimmings -- plenty of good things 
here for vegans and people who don't want to look their dinner in the face. 

Happy birthday, Carol!
