In which I get a haircut and a real boat

Sheep update: They got to see a vet yesterday afternoon, who stitched more of their wounds than I would have, and was able to use local anaesthetic to minimise their pain and trauma while doing so. Last night all were doing well, although No3 was still off her tucker. Can't say I blame her, that leg was pretty mangled and I would want to just sit and nurse it too. But they should all pull through, which is good news.

In other news, I got my hair cut.

Meanwhile, you may recall from such times as about three days ago, that I find 'ladies' versions of things that have no gender-related necessary differences, equal parts amusing and annoying. So this morning when this came through on my email, I laughed out of one side of my mouth while cursing out the other. I give you, The Berkley Angel Ladies' Softbait Rod:

Yes, it's pink. Hot pink. Yay! And it's called 'angel', because women are angels, dontcha know? I'm totally one. Yep.

I mean really. A fishing rod is a medium to transfer force from the hands and arms to a fish, while reducing shock load on the thin piece of material attaching one to the other. There is ZERO reason to make one especially for women. It even says in the blurb that it's actually the same blank as another rod called 'dropshot'. But this one has 'cool cosmetics'. Because chicks dig cosmetics, amirite? Seriously, that's the only difference. They made it pink, called it Angel, and taDA! Ladies' rod.

ARGHARGHARGH! I want to find a place where I can review this rod as sarcastically as people did those pens. Because ARGHFUCK!

This is awesome

My adagio partner may be horrified to discover that I find Paul Hunt a huge inspiration. Unfortunately, in order to do that kind of gymnastic comedy you actually have to be really good.
