Milk bottle there for comparison.
Also, for those of you who are on Twitter (and preferably within New Zealand otherwise this is going to get waaaay out of hand), I accidentally started a Twitter Valentine Event. It is like Secret Santa - you email or DM me your postal/email address (or both if you have no preference for real card or ecard), then I
stalk you email you your Valentine, and you send and receive warm, fuzzy anonymous love.
(The best kind of love.)
If you would like to be a part of this highly twitteromantic event, I am tweetable on tarquin_death and emailable on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you're not on Twitter but would like to be included anyway then I guess that's ok, just email me. Please do attempt to be in NZ though.
And now, time for a brief poll*: I am writing a story and need a name for the male romantic lead. From an impressive pool of suggestions including such gems as Gunther, Duncan, Raoul, Shane, and "Sebastian, but later on it turns out he likes boys," I have whittled it down to five possibilities:
I'm not sure why I left Ringo in there, but I did.
I would very much appreciate your vote on which one of these is the best name. If I have done it right, there will be a poll on the sidebar -------->
which you can vote in!
If I have not done it right and there is no poll, you're just going to have to resign yourself to sentences like, "Ringo's sensual mouth curved cruelly as he surveyed the vast aubergine."
*not, as initially anticipated by me, a poll about my briefs
