Oh! And I have my sword back! *dansudansu* I cannot say how happy this makes me. I haven't had it since getting back from Japan since the person who carried it for me is up in Berkeley and I haven't had time to get up there to pick it up. Last night I made time (even though my task wasn't complete), and I'm really glad that I did. I don't have time or energy to practice, but not having my sword was feeling like having a piece of me missing.
Uh, that's all for now. I just wanted to brag that I finally got something done on time. Oh, and the next task is the last one before code complete. So after that maybe I can stop being so behind.
And my book on Kawanakajima arrived today. I am most pleased. I am also absolutely swimming in Turnbull that I haven't read yet. (This is also pleasing -- though it will be more pleasing once I start reading it.)
