Quickie Entry

He, he. I said *quickie*

Anyhoo. This week has been kicking my butt. After three weeks of absence from work, this is only to be expected.

But it was worth it.

Last night I made fencing practice. I was rather relaxed, and decided to perfect my new techniques. It is working rather well, although I still don't get as many touches as I would like.

Heh, that's only a matter of time.

In the meantime, I am frustrating the heck out of everyone else. That is rather satisfying. And when ballistabob and Seamus tried my own stance against me, I knew I was on to something . . .

This is just too much fun.

Of course, I am not yet satisfied with it. I still need to figure out a more seamless way of combining this with what I already have, but so far I am doing rather well. I even got to correct ballistabob's stance, directing him to put more of the weight on his back leg if he wanted to do this.


Thank you Dante!
