‘s party was a sucess. I am sick. Feverish, chills, aches in the bones. Gets better, gets worse, meh. The worst is the headache.

My friend in the past has talked about the … pleasure? of carrying a knife with him all the time. I started working for the boy scouts two mondays ago, and on Wednesday of my first week I bought a knife. So far I’ve been carrying it every day, and I find it tremendously satisfying. So far, I’ve used it every day. I’ve used it to cut rope and twine, string, a small maple sapling, to peel bark, to open a package of newspapers on several different days, and to trim twigs for building a demonstration fish weir. Go me.

Thanks, . I wish I’d started carrying one when you first mentioned it on LJ, more than a year ago.

Now, to bed. for the ninth time today. Can I just say how totally pissed off I am that I’m going to miss Ragan Fox tonight at Java Hut?

  1. ‘ere, that’s a knife…

    I’ve carried a pocket knife since I was about 13… and I use it very often for all manner of things. Definitely a must-have for any serious tool-using human.
