Weight and Stuff Report – 11 August 2010

As expected, back up again today. I’d try to do some more walking, but the knees are complaining again…

Today’s picture is of an F-86 Sabre at the Sunderland Air Show. I don’t recall seeing one of these in the air before.

Floating TARDIS

Over the years, I’ve come close to buying one of those floaty globe thingies on several occasions. You know the sort of thing – it’s a frame with a battery powered magnetic field that allows you to insert a suitably equipped object so that it floats and can gently rotate. Well, I never quite got round to it[1] until yesterday, when I saw this:

It had to be done.

Adipose!

Back in 2008, when writing about Partners in Crime, I mentioned the extreme cuteness of the Adipose, and how I expected to see the toys any time soon. I believe there may have been some, but none that really did the job, so to speak. But now there’s an actual Adipose squeezy stress toy. I saw it in Forbidden Planet[1], and just had to get it:

Very squeezy, and just as cute as the original, including the little fang. Nice. When I took him home, I introduced him to Tigger, to see how they’d get on…

Well, they seemed happy enough, but when I got up this morning, the Adipose was lying on the carpet. I can only presume that Tigger bounced him. He does that a lot…
