contaminantalert

it didn't snow much in oxford

... but what came down instantly half-melted into a greasy slippery mess that looked deceptively snow-like unlike you had to stop, or get any grip, at which point it became evil packslush. Thanks to timscience's snow day (lots more snow where he works) getting to the post office was not the nightmare it might have been, however, it's been sobering. Any delight in snow instantly drowned by fear of a second broken wrist. Knowing you don't have the extra capacity to deal with a slip and a bump. Understanding what the transport system must feel like, finally, for the first time. brrrr.

Anyway, enough of that. Onto this week's strip, from which one can deduce that, hmmm -- I've unpacked the dip pens. Also, one handed erasing is really difficult! Thanks to the lovely glittertigger for the beautiful gold paper I'm using.

In other news, ow. Ow, ow, ow. No, I'm much better.
