Went to a Mini “rally” last weekend, and was floored by the number of the Mini’s, and the fantastic old Minis that were there. Stunning stuff, and inspirational, in terms of me getting my little car fixed up nicely. Got some parts on order (soon) from England, and still searching for a reasonable deal on tires. We’ll see how that goes, I suppose.

Flew the kites I’ picked up a couple of weeks ago, and they’re crazy fun. The “SuperChute” is a small NASAWing, and pretty darned hard to launch – it’s really jittery – but once it’s up in the air, it’s fun to rocket around. The “ParaStunter” is a quad line, and really entertaining – you can do a lot of stuff with it. I see why it might be nicer to have a framed quad-line, since the PS can collapse in weird winds – it also doesn’t have crazy pull like I’d sorta hoped it might, but for its size, I guess that can be expected. We haven’t flown in really serious winds regardless, so whatever.

The house is pretty crowded. Was going to have a drywall-o-thon this weekend, but there are still details that need to be finished by the contractors, and the new housemate has a ridiculous amount of stuff downstairs – so that’ll need to get sorted out first. Pushed back two weeks. Will hopefully be able to slam out at least one of the rooms, complete, in a single day. We’ll see.

Right. That’s what I’ve been up to.
