Christmas musings: on the subject of giving

Well, my vacation started a bit rocky with a canceled flight and a 6:40 am replacement flight – wheeee 😦 – but now, with the first moments of Boxing Day upon me, I can say that Christmas was indeed a success 🙂 I’ve always been a fan of Christmas, but I’ve found in recent years…

Mad (scrub) cap adventures: The Video Game cap

I’m not the biggest gamer alive, but I was born and bred on Nintendo.  Majora’s Mask is my favourite Zelda (though I own all the console games from OoT up), Mario and his adventures/tennis/golf/racing are all my jam, and I can kill Master Hand with the best of them.  I’m also a Pokemon fanatic, and,…

Contrasts

So, an awful lot has happened since my last post.  I had a brutal exam – made only worse by how burnt out I was after Monte Carlo – I received my geeky fabric and started making more scrub caps (posts and pics to come), and this also happened. Rough week eh? 😉 One of…
