07:12 pm - Catchin' up and making things work right.
So for about two weeks, I haven't read LJ entries. I'm shocked: I only had to go back about 800 entries to pick up where I left off.

Wanted to drop a note and apologize for not being timely in my replies, and to update from my last sets of entries:

No, no dates. One day, maybe. Part of the issue, of course, is that I'm pretty passive about the dating thing. Then again, I'm a big proponent of trouble finding me, not the other way around. Shocking how rarely that fails.

Yes, the paper went all right. I aced the class. But I'm still not happy with the paper, and might do heavy revisions.

Things are looking good with that clergy thing. While I did finish the GSP stuff, I've been fighting a losing battle to get it into submittable shape. Should be there shortly, like the next few days. But it's all finished.

I'm immensely proud of the spear I made. Pictures should be forthcoming. The ritual it was designed for went well, also. I'm thinking it's time to internalize some things.

My boots got muddier (thanks, perlgirlju), I watched some Phillip K. Dick movies and some vampire movies with some wonderful women, and I'm feelin' good.

Tomorrow, I pick up Tina at the airport. She's been gone a week. Tonight, I clean house.

And now, I'm out, because it's after 7 PM, and I shouldn't be here now.

Life is freakin' good right now. Today, I'm happy.

Could you stand a little closer, girl?

Congrats on the "clergy thing" and that life in general is going well. :) And I wish you luck with the dating thing, even if it is "trouble" you're looking to find (or be found by?)

I wonder if anyone who isn't looking for "trouble" is really looking for a date. Hard to say :)

Yes, things are good, I admit :)

That is a very good point.

Probably true. Whats the point of dates if they aren't going to cause trouble in the long run? None that I can see.

My pleasure.

And anytime you want to get them muddier yet, you know how to find me.

I'd like to get a picture of my new boots, so covered in mud that I have to put a caption:

"No, really: there's a pair of boots in this picture."

Well, I'm sure there will be some lovely muddy trails around the state this weekend...

Don't worry, I don't feel obligated. :) But your journal is one of the few that I went looking to read specifically over the past couple weeks.

I enjoy reading yours.

Um, it's a spear. It's got a shaft and a point.

Yeah, I'm full of knowledge :)

It's about 6ft. long, a little over that including the point, and it's got two hand-grips, and the word Raunijaz is written in runes between the grips.

This was a "last minute" sort of addition to our ritual gear, so there was no time to get a "true" spear point.

But I'm not known for anything if I'm not known for my improvision, so while I was at Lowes shopping for the shaft (which I found in the moulding section: it's a 6 ft. long, 1.5" diameter round made out of pine. . . no ash was available), I went over to the masonry section and picked up a masonry trowel (the three inch version of the one at right).

When I got the trowel home, I took my metal snips to it and cut off the handle, and then slid the blade of the trowel into a slit cut into the shaft. It was a perfect fit. The only issue with the spear is that the slit I cut into the shaft for the point is off center, and it's noticible if you look at it directly from the side, but if the broad portion of the blade is facing you, you can't really notice.

Sorry, the shaft is 1.25" in diameter. Which is a bit wider than I wanted, but it works nicely, actually.

Thanks. I wasn't quite sure how I'd pull it off when we initally started talking about it.

"We should have a spear!" they said.
"Um, okay," I said. "It's too late to buy. I guess we could make one."
"Ooh, that'd be great! How?" they asked.
"Um, I'll see what I can do," I said.

It worked out in the end :)
