..cos WOW are my teeth ever clean. Poked and scraped within an inch of their lives. Still, I think I got my money's worth. I really need to get some insurance.

Sailing on the weekend with K and A. It was a fantastic day out, and we went out for brunch first. And everything was going very smoothly, yet I pulled an almost complete Rainman-and-the-smoke-detector anxiety attack. Just cos it was a little windy. And ok, at one point at the dock I thought K and A were going to let go of the dock just as we'd managed to come in and we'd drift backwards. But even that woudn't have been the end of the world, I dunno what I was getting so excited about.

I think maybe its a little bit because.. well, when it's windy and I have new crew on board who can't trapeze, that means the only way to sail is just to rag the main constantly, and I can't point, and it just feels.. it's hard to describe it's a horrible way to sail because the balance is all off. Maybe something like driving with one very flat tire. Anyway, it was like nails on a blackboard all afternoon and I got so edgy I made us come in early.

And I bought a new DVD player. There were two types in the store, one for less than half the price of the other. I ASKED the guy what the difference was for such a big price gap, and he SAID that they were pretty much identical except for the brand name. So even though I should, I guess, have known that the super-super-cheap version was likely to be a bad idea, well. I couldn't buy the more expensive one just because it was more expensive could I?

Anyway, OF COURSE the cheapo piece of crap doesn't work at all. At first the power wouldn't go on, then it did go on, the drawer opened half way and stuck and then it shut down completely. So I can't even package it up again properly cos it's busted half open.

Bloody thing.
