Smiley

(no subject)

After an amusing set of bureaucratic escapades at the airport (including such highlights as 'do you actually have a visa' and 'we can't let you fly without a return flight'), sprattica and I have made it to New Zealand, specifically to Wellington. mr_orgue & co are leaping above and beyond the call of duty - it's one thing to provide accomodation, another thing to provide food, tour guidance and transport, but to secure copies of obscure fantasy novels I need for research - that's the metaphorical icing on the metaphorical cake.

I like metaphorical icing. I shall put it on other things. This lj post, for example. You cannot percieve it, for it is but a metaphor, but it's covered in chocolate frosting. I'll understand if you lick the screen.
