I have been much too busy lately to find time to write in this thing, and maybe indeed this is its death knell, no doubt much to the consternation of all. Here's some things I did recently.
- Went to a wedding: One of the exceedingly rare occasions when all my immediate family are in the same country and even room. I hadn't been to a wedding since I was 4, and this was for an old family friend I hadn't seen in a very long time. The catch-phrase of the weekend was "long time no see", and to my surprise everyone asks you what you do for a living. If I'd known it was going to provide my identity I'd have chosen more carefully; fortunately people seem to think the Central Criminal Court is cool. It was in England in the pork pie capital of the world and someone called me "old boy" several times. Turns out maybe that bridesmaid was hitting on me and I'd have been doing her a favour by tapping that so she wouldn't end up with her ex-boyfriend, but I just thought she was a bad dancer.
- Kendo tournament and grading: As previously mentioned. Did crap in both the team and individuals, but passed my 1st-dan grading exam and went up a level.
- Cons: Gaming conventions in Trinity College and Galway. Fun. Won a copy of GURPS Fantasy. Less fun.
- Got my Irish EMT cert: Now I can something something. Not sure what exactly I'm allowed do and what not though, and I've never learned to administer laughing gas.
