Well if rain was difficult to find, spiral was darn near impossible. I only found it because it is on the page facing the rain reference (I'm not re-reading the whole book - just looking for the words).
In chapter 18, after the gang have (or is it has - is gang singular or plural?) escaped the misslies being hurtled at them by turning on the improbability drive, Ford "who was sitting on the spiral staircase, a nicely chilled Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster in his hand says 'But where are we?'"
Drawing a spiral staircase seemed beyond my ability. And I really wanted to do the subject I picked.
When I was a little girl I spent eight years taking figure skating lessons (at 2 different clubs at the same time) - it's what you did as a Canadian girl child when I grew up. Now girls play hockey too. I tried to draw a skating spiral, but I am hopeless at drawing figures. I can draw faces, but get all messed up when I have to do bodies too. So I cheated and found a picture on google.
And I 'quilled' a spiral, although I'm not sure just twisting a piece of paper constitutes quilling:
I loved figure skating as a kid and I still follow it diligently on TV. I do have a thing about Women's figure skating though, because the skaters are so young - hardly old enough to be called women. But when our bodies mature it is very difficult to do some of the things the youngsters can do. I think they should have age categories or something, beyond what they already have.
Off my soapbox. Hope everyone has a special week, without too many stressful twists and turns.
