|11:56 pm - A week passes by (in a daze).|
Well, I seem to have survived the first week of my new job. Given that it's still winter, I came down with a cold on Tuesday, and I started the week not properly caught up on sleep (legacy of my previous sleep pattern) and never quite got caught up, I think I've done reasonably well. Three nights saw me come home, catch up on LJ, then go and nap on the couch for an hour or so before having enough energy and wakefulness to make dinner. We did actually go fencing last night, although I skipped footwork. There was only one other epeeist to fence, so we had three bouts, then I fenced some foil(!) - I still haven't got to try foil on the one box that someone brings along to the club which has the new foil & sabre timings programmed in. From what I've seen, it makes things a bit easier for epeeists crossing over to the dark side.
Now there's a weekend, where I can catch up on sleep, get over the cold (I hope), and possibly run around buying books, too. Yay (*yawn*).
 Not too bad a week, actually - we had a fair amount of sunshine here, only a little splash of rain. Not particularly warm (6-8ish, mostly), but not freezing either.
 Getting to bed between 4am and 6am most nights. Not sure why, it just happened :)
Current Mood: tired

We are calling it "feppay" here at the moment. First comp with new timings is either next weekend or else AFF#1
, Melbourne, March, depending on when the chips arrive. Mmm. Chips.
Um, I'm just gonna wait and see. I've never really been an attack flicker anyway, so I don't think that will make much difference: for me it's the blocking time and possible changes to riposte/remise tactics. Parried? Immediate remise while displacing target to slow down the riposte == one light? We'll see...
Must ask rwrylsin about her adapting to sabre blockout, and whether immediate remise to cuff is killing honest riposting...
