And much to the relief of readers of this blog...

I have reached 150 friends! Woot! That means there are 150 people that read this blog, that I know of. I feel tho thpethul! *cough*

But, this got me thinking about the content of my journal. Given my decision the other day to become more public and active in my efforts to initiate social change in the attitude to recreational substance use, the temptation is to use this blog as a grandstand for my thoughts, opinions and rantings about the topic.

This morning, on the way to work, I saw the first pohutukawa blooms. I kid you not. To see them, you'd have to be sitting in the middle of the intersection where Thorndon Quay turns into Featherston St, looking south, at the planting in the tiny park there. They were kind of like stars in that if you look directly at them, they fade out, but if you look beside them, they are right there. In October!

Fidels tonight, followed by haircut, and hopefully fire dancing after that - depending how long I'm tied to the chair for. Last time it was four hours. *meep*

I am wearing spring green again. This is one of the mornings that I miss seeing thirstygirl on my way to work, because I feel spiffy, and I know she would be too, and it's just nice to have a brief "lets be spiffy together" moment before work every day.

Tell me about your spiff today!
