A Few Discoveries Today

This is a very old post from my blog; so old that it was originally hosted on LiveJournal. The page has been preserved in case its content is of any interest, but formatting errors are likely and the page's original comments have been lost.

1) It’s really, definitely Spring now! I was down to a t-shirt while wandering around today and was still warm; the trees are starting to blossom; and I saw two different kinds of butterfly on the way into Uni, too.

2) The postal service has a running conspiracy to make it appear that I am buying many varied sizes of rocket launcher. The last two major things I mail-ordered both came as a long thin tube with a sort of bulgy bit on one side about quarter of the way down. What with my security clearance for work not quite complete yet, I wonder if MI5 realise that I’ve bought a firestaff, poi, a bokken and some sandals rather than two rocket launchers? =p

3) Tabi socks are awesome, however I shan’t be using them as costume at Maelstrom. They’re currently that really-bad-washing-powder-advert white, and thus even so much as showing them a picture of some mud will get them dirty. Still, I’ll be wearing them on May 1st. And around the house for that matter.
