rain

(no subject)

Today I started fencing. En garde! Hit thing with sword! You miss! The thing hits you! You die...

The fencing people are nice except for one who seemed to be a spanner-faced jerk, but we won't ever have to interact with him so that's okay. Or if we do have to at all it'll be fencing against him, and he's obviously the worst fencer of the regulars, so that'll probably be good. There are only about 6 people, so there'll be no shortage of attention.

I also learned that in a fencing pose with a floppy sword and a bandana (my chosen alternative to having very little hair, until it grows back) I look ridiculously like a swashbuckly pirate. Or ridiculous like a swashbuckly pirate. Hooray.
