More Tricksters...

Forgot Raven and Coyote last time. Decided to do fire story for Maui, getting back Thor's hammer for Loki. Not too sure about Anansi yet. Opera rehearsals getting in to full swing now - 3 times a week.

Trickster Gods

Been thinking about the trickster gods lately - Loki, Maui, Anansi, and so on. I think there could be a good book here, a collection of these stories from around the world.

OK, Plan B then

So, my weekend didn't quite go according to plan - wound up working on Saturday morning till noon, but at least still made it to meet my girlfriend more or less when we'd planned. Milonga was good, small crowd (maybe a dozen), and more guys than girls - still got in a few dances though.
Got a haircut yesterday, happy with it, but feeling colder.
Have also added a list of webcomics I read. I hadn't realised that there were quite so many...

So Cold...

Been very cold here the last few days - haven't been sleeping all that well. No work this Saturday though (managed to get a day off), so will be able to stay in bed for another hour or two and will go to a tango milonga with my girlfriend in the evening.

More stuff on my blog

Adding more to the blog as I go - will put a link up to my World of Warcraft character profile on the sidebar.
Had the first rehearsal last night for the Gilbert and Sullivan opera (Yeomen of the Guard) that i'm going to be in the chorus for; haven't done one of these for a few years, so should be interesting to get back in to it. Recognised a lot of familiar faces at the first rehearsal.
The music isn't too complicated, but the stagecraft is always good to work on.

I finished the Fire Festival midsummer achievement in the weekend playing WoW - man, what a grind. Good money in it though, and another outfit for the collection.

A poem I'm working on:

The dead do not sleep,
They are around us,
Beside us,
Within us.
As a goad,
As a comfort,
As a millstone.
The dead do not sleep.

Comments appreciated.
