Quick things  
I have just been sorting out my travel wallets (I have one per currency, it saves a lot of time and stress if you go back to the same places a lot) and I came to sort out my new UK one. It was a gift from calanthe_fics , and she popped a few treats inside. One of them was a condom, which all young people should carry several of. At the time, I assumed it was a continuation of an in-joke that, given the lack of sex in almost all of my fics, I am secretly a nun.

Today, while cleaning out the wallet, I actually looked at the condom. It expired in 2003. I am now not sure if Cal was making a really sophisticated nun joke, or if she has a secret condom museum and was clearing out a duplicate.

In more amusing news, check out Mic and Dyson's Open Fandom, Open Couple Kissing Meme, it's the sweetest idea in ages, from two of the loveliest people in fandom!

I'm off to NZ in the morning, I may or may not have net access. I do have a house sitter who likes cats, so the important things are covered ;-)

Definitely the latter. Say, I wonder if the museum is open to the public? Hmm... probably it's for personal enjoyment only.

She is a generous soul, it would be public.

*lol* I now have a very clear vision of Cal running her Condom Museum, writing smut whilst sitting behind the counter. Not the worst life, I'd imagine. :)

... and a well-oiled man sorting condoms by expiration date and colour and texture in the background.

Occasionally modelling, too!

I think we have found her perfect career. Can you imagine the lectures? I'd go!

I'm completely out of the loop. I'm going to offer an "Enjoy your trip!" and hope that you're not going to NZ for a very non-enjoyable reason.

*smiles winningly in case of the latter*

You're good, I don't think I've even mentioned it. It's a flying visit for a friend's 'do' this weekend. Will come back damp and cool, but with lungs full of fresh air!

That IS a winning smile ;-)

Have a nice trip :)

Thanks! It's just a few days, but the cats fret so if they are left alone, and we are feeble when their demands are concerned.
calanthe_fics on November 11th, 2009 04:35 pm (UTC)
Yes, it was a joke. Do you know how bloody hard it is to find an out of date condom? No bugger admits to having one!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 11th, 2009 04:43 pm (UTC)
It's too late, I have convinced myself you have a museum, and scour ebay nightly for one of those ancient ones made of intestines. XXX

Oh, I'm happy to send you a couple. ;-)

I really probably should NOT admit to this, but I just looked and I have like, 6.

*facepalm and throws them away*

Have fun! I wouldn't want to spoil your weekend away with beta duties, so I'll wait until you get home before emailing it to you...

Have a safe trip!
Kieranfilmatleven on November 11th, 2009 10:25 pm (UTC)
LOVE YOU! thanks for the pimp *twirls*

Also, condom = amusing.

HAVE A SAFE TRIP!

Isn't the kissing meme lovely? Not that I have read anything over there, let alone written anything, because that would be a dreadful misuse of my creativity when hols is now overdue...
*looks guilty*

Sophisticated and nun joke sound vaguely oxymoronical. (oxymoronish? what is the word for this)
