Upgrades to the breast cancer bracelets - 19:35
I broke another
pink silicon breast cancer bracelet today, so went home to get one of the
new ones. I was happy to notice as I put it on they have improved the design.
If you see the photo in the link above you can see the NBCF bracelets all tend
to break in a similar place. I noticed the other week that splits were forming
where there is a letter N in the writing. Now the new improved design has no
writing indented into the bracelet, the lettering and ribbons are all raised
off the band. This should stop them from breaking as easily. Of course maybe I
should simply stop removing it as often as I do (showering mostly).
Poor impulse control or cool things at office works - 19:12
Shiny Officeworks purchases (fullsize)
So today Mikal and I wandered into
Braddon today to buy some hardware for the
LA Mirror, to get some disks we went
to office works and bought two of the AUD $177 WD USB drives. While we were at
the store I was distracted by the items in the photo to the left.
I saw the cancer council suncream on a carabina which I thought was a great
idea, when racing or out doing stuff I often forget to apply suncream as often
as I should. If it is hanging off my pack somewhere my team mates and I can
easily get at it and use it. Also it gets it out of the pack, and the bottle
can be refilled.
My pink and purple gel pens in my rogaining/navigation/map marking pencil
case are running low, but even without this I could not resist the impulse to
buy some new ones cheaply next to the cash register. Also they had the cute 1
GB purple usb key for $5 and the 2 GB white one for $10, at that sort of cost
these items are pretty much disposable and it is always useful to have a few
around (I broke another 2 GB one a few days ago).
As Mikal commented, I need to work on my impulse control when shopping, or
stay out of shops.
