me, beard

sword class

Made it up to Oakland for the sword class by invitation of ardaneil. Made it there earlier then they did, wandered around like a moron for a couple of minutes, before someone asked, "You're looking for Janice, right?" Apparently they were in Richmond, and called Mike to say, "There should be a skinny white guy wandering around looking lost." He spent about 20 minutes showing me the basics, then ardaniel showed up, along with tarzxf. We talked for a bit, I handed over about a third of a metric buttload of books to ard, watched her spar with mike for a bit. Then, rugle drove by one way...then another way..then disappeared. Darrien showed up late, and apparently beat. We sparred for a bit, I impressed myself by hitting him a couple of times. He hurt me back alot. :-)
Rugle eventually showed up, I tossed a book at him. We need to spar next time he's up, so I can see if I can put some hurt on him. ;-). After sword class, ard, neal, rugle and I went out to Spaghetti Factory for lunch. I was impressed by the fact that the menu's were set up so as to be labeled and mailed home. We then wandered Jack London Square for a bit, found a place that had ginger chocolate. Wasn't very good. Needs better chocolate, and stronger ginger. :(.

I had a good day, which was just about exactly what I needed after the past week. I'll definitly be going up every chance I can for the foreseeable future.

Oh, and apparently people think I'm seven feet tall, and shoot lightning bolts out of my arse. How exactly does that work again? I'm, like, *average*....
