Gib Finney’s sequel to THE POWER OF UN
Tortures of Ragnoth
8 April 2008, Finney @ 8:59 am

Hi, hi. Dropping in to say I’m still here, just way busy getting ready to go. Trying on wool underwear and socks. The socks, okay, I can deal with them, but the underwear — dude, it’s like the tortures of Ragnoth. I am on strike in favor of microfleece. Ash says he will gut it out and take the wool because he wants to be just like Ernest Shackleton, and they didn’t have microfleece in Shackleton’s day. IMHO, Ash is sometimes insane.

Rainy, on the other hand, sweet-talked her parents into buying her these ultra-soft unders made out of special wool from special sheep in New Zealand. It’s softer than my old stuffed rabbit, Bunzo, who, I confess, is still on the top shelf of my closet.

Also, think about it. I’m going to miss the last three weeks of school. And every single one of my teachers is loading on the extra work!

The good news is that all three of us are finished with our medical tests and are now officially “PQ,” which means healthy enough to go on this trip. Yahoooo! The other good news is that instead of expensive ultra-soft New Zealand froo-froo sheep underwear, I got a really cool new camera which I am learning to use so I can take awesome pictures of icebergs and otherworldly creatures of the deep and stuff.

More about Donald Frog soon.
