Personalising Dog Tags
I thought this lady was horrible & rude because you were only allowed 9 letters for a first name so I put down "SarahRose" and she got all snippity about the double capital letters, even after I explained that USUALLY, when ALLOWED, I put a hyphen between the two parts of my first name. JEEZ.
So I took this photo intending to be all horrid only to find, once completed, that she had BROKEN THE 9 LETTER RULE for me and thus, again, I was both ashamed and Sarah-Rose.

Dippin Dots
Then we tried Dippin Dots because, like Fluff (tm), it (they?) was (were?) something I'd only ever heard about.
They were less delicious than I expected.

Sir C & his Hot Dog
And our first real American hot dogs. I can't believe it took us this long to get around to them.

Have a Great Navy Day!
(don't get complacent. We followed THIS up with more looking-at-old-war-stuff)

Week Forty-Three

365 in 2009!

I just can't seem to shake this post-show exhaustion.

Sunday: Horrible weather, horrible mood
On Sunday the weather was horrible and so was my mood. Sigh.

Monday: Missed a protest outside my work. Who is Peter Jenson?
I missed a protest outside of my workplace. I have no idea who this Peter Jansen is.

Tuesday: Hauling Books around
Portable library! The Frankie Photobook was won in a giveaway run by the darling Amber of code for something.

Wednesday: Trixie Delicious Badge
I lovelovelove the badge which came with the plate Sir C ordered through Trixie Delicious for me.

Thursday: Mysterious Bruises
One of my legs has been coming up in (stress/exhaustion enduced) mysterious bruises. There are at least 2 more not pictured.
Thankfully I actually quite like my legs being all bruised. It makes me feel tough.

Friday: Poor Polar Bears
Most of these 350 posters in Wellington Railway Station make me roll my eyes. But this one I thought was pretty cute.

Saturday: Craig Packing
Sir C packed his little bags and flew up to Auckland to play mechanic to his Dad's race-car-driver during the Targa.


Can't shake this exhaustion
At the peak of my post-show exhaustion.
