Monday: arm was still not up to fencing but decided to pop down to meet the guys for a drink anyway. As if any further evidence was required that I am transparent beyond belief, I SMSed Kate to ask if there was any chance she could bring that bottle of Maggi chilli and garlic sauce she'd picked up for me. Her response was that 5 minutes before she was due to leave work was leaving it a tad late but I was in luck as she'd anticipated this request! And then, on getting to the gym and taking delivery of it, Jo commented that she knew I'd have "that expression" on my face. Oh boy...

There's also the minor matter of the near-heart attack Kate managed to induce in me by asking, very loudly at the pub, "How's Mel?" within easy earshot of Mel's ex...

Also, Kate had been working on organising a trip to re-enactor traders' fairs at the end of the month. Looks like Cathy's medieval chaps will be at them too. Looks like it could be a fun day out. Only snag is that it really has to be on the Saturday for me as the London League finals are on the Sunday!

Yesterday: went to see Serenity with Liz. Those wishing to remain unspoiled, proceed no further. Not exactly what I'd call scientific but I was especially interested in her reaction as, in the time I've known her, she's gradually gone from being a mundane to a borderline fan who rather likes David Duchovny and David Boreanas and likes Farscape to the extent that she's got my first season DVDs (and thinks very highly of Ben Browder in leather trousers...).

Well, her view was, not bad, pretty good story but there was clearly bits of back story she didn't understand (e.g. Simon's confession to Kaylee at the end seemed a bit sudden, Book and Inara seemed a bit incidental at times) and this would have been worse without me to fill in the gaps. It also still felt to her like TV rather than film at times. Overall, pretty good but she's not sure she'd have been to interested in following up by watching the series DVDs if not for my recommendation and that's still going to be lower priority than watching my Farscape and Galactica DVDs.

Speaking of Serenity...is there any chance of borrowing a big firearm from you for Serenity Squared?

now to find a knife :)

Of course. May I recommend the AUG? It's big, hefty and fairly unfamiliar to most. My other weapons are a tad too recognisable (P-90, M-16, M-41A, Mossburg M-500).

weeeeh...a steyr...haven't played with on of those for years :)

hey - some people might recognise it - from Serenity One

There is always that. The only person who openly recognised the AUG for what it was was an Australian ex-squaddie so he damn well ought to have!

Some cursory research suggests an accurate Vera will be seriously non-trivial to make...
