Sep. 26th, 2007

I have just purchased a multi-tool set from Robert Dyas. It is PURPLE. (Yay!) It consists of drill, screwdriver, hammer, tape-measure, pliers and spirit level. (I am disappointed to see that the fluid in the spirit level is not PINK.)

I purchased this because (a) I do not have an electric drill (b) I had a £5-off voucher (c) I want to drill holes in things (d) the tools have grips designed for smaller hands (e) PURPLE.

There is, however, an Initiative Test.

The whole thing is attractively packaged in a metallic silver case, with plenty of superfluous plastic. And covering the tools is a thick moulded layer of clear plastic. Which is held in place by ...

... eight Philips screws.

I did consider being Authentic and using a nail file, a kitchen knife or one of those diddy screwdrivers you get in Christmas crackers. Or falling back on my usual resort in Insufficiently Tooled situations ("[livejournal.com profile] nolley! I need some screwing!")

But it would have taken too long, so I used my non-PURPLE non-powered non-branded screwdriver.

Give me another Gender Stereotype. I've got a hammer now.
