I went to a swordfighting class last night because it was their 'sparring night', and I haven't sparred in weeks.  They ended up spending most of the time doing 'melee', which was a bunch of 4 on 4 and 2 on 2 on 2 on 2 fighting, and a little 2 on 1 as well.  I'd never done it before and didn't really do so well as I could have, but it's an entirely different way of sparring so it's understandable.  I did much better on the 1 on 1 round-robin earlier in the class, kicked some ass there.  It's a hell of a drive over to Missouri City but those guys are pretty fun.  My muscles are pretty worn out today, which is always a good feeling.

I will be spending a considerable portion of my time off writing and editing, and I'll be going camping the last few days off with some friends.  I'll try to manage my time well, better than last year.  I have no idea what kind of time off I might get next Xmas so I should take advantage of this state-employee perk while I have it.  I'm leaving for Baton Rouge tomorrow early if possible to beat the Friday traffic and to avoid the Thursday traffic today from the other state employees.  Also I haven't packed and I need to assemble my trailer and load up my bike.  I am hoping to be too engrossed in work to remember I hate the holidays.
