Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow?
SSar's Beast
There's a cute little heraldic device called a pheon, which I like, because it's a stylised arrow (and, of course, looks nothing like an arrow). I can't draw it, therefore, 'broken arrow'. Despite this, I have a second reason for liking it, which is that its name (why that name?) resembles "phoenix". Very good. Very connected.

I'm going to get the hang of the HTML customisation, I really am.

I feel very pseudo-academic. If that's even a term. Half of the books up there are for to make one Morbane a Well-Rounded Young Lady. Ah but who cares.

Yesterday I had:
-Severe loss of money due to provisions and extortionate ferry prices ($40.00 is BIG in my world!!)
-A wonderful ferry ride full of the quality of grace and the feeling that something magical was about to happen/ was in some sense already happening
-A picnic with scary lady and Artist Way group who are nice except for scary lady who has nice qualities also, really
-Lots of innuendo by Artist Way group, few of whom are less than twice my age, upon which half would say "Oh, sorry, [Morbane], cover your ears!" (They're so adorable).
-A bus ride, cut short by Morbane getting off at the wrong stop
-A long walk/jog/RUNRUNRUN I'M GOING TO MISS THE FERRY! to Matiatia Wharf
-A peaceful ferry ride back to Auckland City
-Very knotty hair
-One more party to go to
-Bleh. Party. I spoke fewer words than are in this list and looked very attentive
-Tossing and turning
-Lack of sleep caused by cat who is looking to start up a All-Night-Kitty-Feeding-And-Petting enterprise, with me as chief of staff
-Vivid dreams.
