Yesterday was a good day. One of the women from the historic costuming talk last week invited me to her monthly crafting-day followed by a pot-luck dinner and classic-movie-with-great-frocks, so I battled my way through 100km/hr winds to her place in Island Bay. I don't think I have felt quite so instantly comfortable with any bunch of people ever - they organise events simply for excuses to dress up. Whee - finally a reason to do steampunk properly!
Also, from the small world file - I went to highschool with my hostess' partner, and work with the husband of one of the other attendees. Weird.
