What's it all About ?

Am I getting old or is this just ridiculous ?

I have stumbled across the One Piece website and for a mere $187 you can have the above number. OK - to wear something like that in the comfort of your own home - turn the heating down and snuggle on the sofa, as long as your other half doesn't mind, that is your business, but really, honestly I have heard that people are actually going out in these things. This article is really quite amusing and worrying at the same time ! I mean really - who wants to go out looking like a baby !

I haven't had time to take a photo of my outfit today, but if you have a look at my Boxing Day outfit - that it is, with the addition of a stripey scarf !! We have been on the Logos Hope today. It's basically a rather large floating book shop - the boys loved it, book shops here are really really expensive and have limited selection, so it was a great opportunity to get some really reasonably priced books for them. It's always great to do something different and doing something like that really gives you the opportunity to rub shoulders with the locals - whether it is battling to get past the queue bargers to get on the bus to go to the boat - or trying to avoid the children getting pushed off the gangplank by over enthusiastic locals, or doing our best to get to the book shelves past the hoards of other people without being shoved out the way or prevent people with "only one item" pushing in front of you in the queue to pay - yes indeed it was an interesting day !!!! Still we came away with a nice haul of books and none of us ended up in the drink - so it was worth it !
