Boing Boing has an item about how “frighteningly easy” it is to use FedEx to send stuff to Afghanistan. Apparently it’s also “frighteningly easy” to send things to Rwanda and Bhutan. Since my mum was on the phone to me earlier this week wondering how she could send some prints of my photos of Maisie and Sam to Auntie Clarina securely, I decided to ask FedEx if it was frighteningly easy™ to FedEx stuff to Sierra Leone. Their Website said: “You couldn’t pay us enough, sunshine.”

Maisie has yellow hair

(Maisie, incidentally, has shrewdly been insisting that her hair lately is “yellow”, rather than allowing herself to be too closely associated with the word “blonde”.)
