Adventures of a Wayward Sailor
I am a poor, wayfaring stranger...
Still sick, taking a break from papers

I promised myself that if I finished a paper, I could mess around with LJ for awhile. The SCA demo last night at UNH was a bit of a bust, but at least we all had fun. It was Ulrich, Syele, Nick, Kynar, and Bethra for most of the evening. Fortunately, we'd all brought projects to work on. I discovered I'd left my ibuprofen at home, so had to take a codeine instead. The evening gets pretty fuzzy after that. ;)

We came to the conclusion that Codeine would be a good redneck name, if you drawl it right: "Co-DEEN, whar's my beer at?"

This was the larger of the two. My foot is there for reference.

The cavity appears to have been gouged out rather than moulded.

In order to cast the sounding leads, I need (big surprise) more lead. Does anyone have any spare lead piping or flashing around that they don't want, or know a source I can get it? (Preferably free.) I can guarantee it'll go to a good home. :)

Also, I'm trying to get my hands on a DC 4.5 volt adapter for my CD player, since I've lost the one it came with. Surprisingly, I don't think Radio Shack has any. Help?

I think there was something else important I wanted to say, but damned if I can remember it.
