Pies were invented for the joy of people*

Argh! My email and internet crashed and burned yesterday afternoon and I am home-netless until a technician can come over and fix it, which should be sometime this afternoon.

Just wanted to say a rousing HUZZAR to Harry and Mindy... we came home yesterday to the sight of TWO huge boxes of Warhammer figurines and sundry accoutrements awaiting Bumblebee on the front verandah. Harry, you are the man, and Mindy, you are a champion courier. I just want to reiterate here and now that we consider Bumblebee a custodian only of these wonders, and they will be waiting for the first For Battle geekbaby to grow up and need them. ForBattlers only need contact us to request them back and you too can battle on with your youngsters.

When I get my home internet back I will post some pictures of the battlefield that used to be my diningroom table! In the meantime I am at art school trying to prepare classes for next week whilst gagging at the refurbishment dust. I think the storm repairs are making more mess than the storm ever did...




* The title of this post comes from eating lunch today... Bumblebee likes to eat a pie with a spoon, but today there were no spoons, so he grudgingly ate it all at once, holding it in his hands. Thinking about centuries of workers wanting non-messy warm lunches, I asked him why he thought pies were invented. This was his answer.

I am so happy to find another person who eats pies with spoons. Teaspoon or dessert spoon? I'm a teaspooner myself.

I was more than happy to remove said boxes from my garage and am glad that Bumblebee is enjoying them. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a baby forbattler to take them over in time. Just hopefully not one of mine.

Perhaps bumblebee & the tormentor could end up running an organic pie shop together...oh that is so weird thinking of one's kids actually working as adults....free hotwheels car or light sabre with every dozen pies...

I think pies are joyful too.
