juliet: Me sat on the side of a mountain with my snowboard, all bundled up in boarding kit (snowboarding)
[personal profile] doop & I just spent a week in Les Arcs (somewhere in the Alps... not actually sure exactly where, but it took us about 5 hrs by train from Paris) throwing ourselves down mountains. Snowboarding is a very splendid thing, even if it did take me half the week to remember what the hell I was doing. Mountains lovely, injuries mostly moderately minor (though d did get to visit the doctor on day 1 after crocking his elbow).

Beastwatch: 4 penguins, 2 leopards, a koala, and a Jersey cow, all on skis; and Batman on a snowboard. (He waved at me, then fell over.)

Actual beastwatch: lots of tiny birds! And what looked a lot like hare tracks, but no actual visible hare.

ION: I am clearing out drawers again, & have a nice set of straight knitting needles, in a nice zip-up red case, that used to belong to my Mum. I never use straight needles, so really they ought to go to a better home. Anyone want them?

(While I'm at it: despite my best efforts to offload the lot on anyone who expressed even mild interest at my party, I still have a couple of copies of that book about Linux that I wrote to give away. Anyone want one? Happy to post.)
