Wombat!

A wombat for Susie:

As I was walking up Martin Place* on the way to work, I passed a little girl, about five or six years old, holding on to mummy with one hand, and clutching a toy wombat in the other.

Other than that... I got the credit notes to match up! (Mostly.) Yay!

I got a copy of Keith Laumer's A Plague of Demons. Yay!

I got volume 14 of the Oh! My Goddess!** manga.*** Yay! Now I can finally read volumes 15 and 16, which I already had. Someone explain to me, by the way, why there are now 78 episodes of You're Under Arrest and only 5 of the far more entertaining series from the same author?

Also, new volumes of Noir (as seen on USS Clueless), Cardcaptor Sakura, Tiny Snow Fairy Sugar****, Onegai Teacher, um... (Ducks downstairs.) Chobits and Mahoromatic.

And since someone decided this year is 1995 part two for computer games, Warlords IV. There goes my weekend...

* Which you've seen in the original Matrix - the scene with the Marilyn Monroe type in the red dress - only it was dug up and rebuilt for the Olympics and doesn't look like that any more. One of the features of the new Martin Place is a fountain built into the paving stones, that periodically sprays a fine mist on anyone who might be standing in the wrong place.

** "Ah! My Goddess!" - the manga*** was named before someone pointed out the obvious pun in English. The Japanese title is Aa! Megami-sama!. Which translates to, well, Ah! My Goddess!

*** Comic book. In thise case, a nicely printed, small format collection, or "graphic novel".

**** Cute. Phear.

2 Last night I dreamed I was a pirate, but a mall pirate...and I had a lovely wombat on my shoulder. Very cuddly. Then I went to HotDog On A Stick and we shared some cheese fries. I need to get out more.
