I wrote a very long, very good email to Erien.
I spent some time outside.
I did a rune reading for shizukagozen (talk about a rare thing!)
I set up a time to meet with _crow365__ then had to reschedule when I realized I'd be seeing him anyway tomorrow night.
I got up through Level Three without a sword in Zelda. Then, stupidly, I hit "retry" instead of save. So now I have to go back and do it again. But I've proven you get at least get 1/3 of the way through without a sword! (hint: get that bow and arrow fast!)
I'm coming off a very good ritual lead by romandruid. I think I needed that.
I'm coming off an OSU loss to Texas, too. I'd feel bad, but damn if we didn't prove that the number 1 and number 2 teams were out on that field that night. . . And it so happened that, on Saturday, Texas was the better team. I wonder if they'll still be the better team at the end of the season? Only one way to find out: play them in the National Championship Game. I can see it happening, honestly. I really, really like their quaterback, though. There's no question that that kid is the best quarterback in the country, and he has fun playing! I think that's really why I like him.
I made a very tough decision, one that seems to be make or break, really. It could have gone very badly for me, I think, had I chosen wrong. I can't really talk about it, I'm afraid, but suffice it to say, I'm proud of it. Damn proud. And that's important.
As for how I feel?
I want to "tell some lies, meet some spies, and dance barefoot in the sand."
