My sister’s involved with the medieval group up in Wellington. There’s a certain parallel degree of interests. I showed her how to make chain mail, but she was the one who made herself a chain mail shirt.

There’s a certain buzz when things work. When you make something for SCA, it works, it fits, it actually comes out right. I don’t know whether that’s a particular thing to do with any sort of challenge. I’m not brilliant at physics, but I’ll keep plugging away at a problem until it gets fixed.
