Still thrilled about the whole Obama thing... *stoopid grin* I may eventually have something intelligent to say, but for now I'm settling for a generally pleased and relieved haze.


So... the ugly saga of the laundry room, abridged: When the exhaust becomes detached from the dryer and you do not notice for weeks (or months?) , the lint will pile up on the floor. When your basement leaks, and the lint gets wet, then dry, then wet, then dry... it becomes as cement and adheres to the floor so firmly you need to use a hoe to loosen it. :( Then, when water is poured on the remainder, the floor is still amazingly absorbent until the layers are scraped off. Oi. Not fun. Also? In addition to all their other crappy household "improvements", the batshit crazy previous residents used the worst ever hose clamps. I didn't think hose clamps were complicated enough to have crappy versions, but there you go.


Tonight, I realized that I was exhausted... tired from work, tired from loading my car with linen for the weekend, tired from being up too late last night... but I didn't hurt. So, I decided to see if I could break that. ;P I went out and fenced for the first time in about  year. I warmed up with devikat , fenced with Tomas and a newer guy, and then ended the night with Sir Guillaume. (Note to self, pick that fight earlier in the night. :P) I can tell that I've lost a lot, but I didn't completely suck either. I need to remember to fence in conversations, not sentences and I need to work on only taking the clean shots and doing so decisively... I did, however, have a pretty good track record for responding to being rushed by stabbing the offender in the head. It was a good time, if tiring. I've missed it. We'll see how often I can manage to do this - I was full of achey-ness by the end of the night, but it was probably worth it. :)

I was good to see you back on the field.

Soreness tells you that you've been learning.

Re: Fight!
Thanks... I don't know that there was any learning last night, just a lot of hard-core remembering. (As in "Doh! Don't do THAT!") :P
