I was wandering through the grocery store late last night and noticed an abundance of apples.
Well, a large variety I should say. At least a dozen different kinds, and I did not recognize almost half. I wonder if the names are just different here? Some of them really seemed made up. Of course I can’t think of an example now, I’ll go back and take notes later. I just stuck with my Royal Gala.
My brother is being horrible. To everyone, not just me for once. Although only I have the bruises. Oi and vey.
My Gran is doing better than expected. We had a lovely day together yesterday, which ended with a high stakes card game. Competition defintely runs in the family. Today my parents are doing a lot of paperwork with her, and she’s redoing her will, etc. I also think they’re trying to convince her to move back to Canada. But I don’t think she’d ever leave here. For one thing, you can’t smoke back home and she’s set in her routine. It would be nice to have her closer. Sometimes I wonder if having family so far away makes you appreciate them a bit more, than if they were at your doorstop. I never lived in the same area as any relatives.
I got up early this morning and took a walk to my favourite spot. I’ll have to take a camera next time, although part of me likes that its untouched and so peaceful. Once I’m done firing a few missives here and there I am going to wander down through a couple of museums and galleries I noticed yesterday.
Last night before I went to bed I caught a show on the History channel about the evolution of Batman’s suit and other gadgets. Now, I’m a huge geek so I found this kind of fascinating. They were commenting on if the suit, etc was scienctically possible. Almost everything in the newer Batman’s is, some of the more elaborate gagets some the older films, and comics were not.
It got me thinking (even though not all superheroes need a suit), if you were a superhero, what would comprise your suit and or other gadgets?
I’d want a memory cloth cape.
My monocle would have some infrared and xray wizardry.
And I’m thinking a cane could double has some kind of utility belt with lots of different compact compartments.
I would also like some kind of a hat, but I think that might be pushing it.
