I was wondering about that. There are certain SEC teams that I'm fine with and will usually root for over an out-of-conference team, but then there's teams like Tennessee, and I just don't have time for them. I've never known a Spartan to actually cheer for the Wolverines. It will be a good game though.

I was on the fence for the Sugar Bowl, until I saw some Wolverines with a sign that said "Spartan Tears Taste Like Sugar." I became an instant VT fan when I saw that. Their new coach is turning the program around in a hurry, but I'm optimistic that we still have a few more years of calling them "Little Sister" without cringing.

Does anyone else get chills thinking about an obviously ancient dragon calling a demi-lich young man?

Hehe. I was wondering about that, too.

Or more to the point, I was wondering who she was talking about. I can't even remember if we faced a lich or not, much less a young man.

Yeah... this little exchange just reminded me why we haven't slept. I've been wondering about that, as our group could certainly do with the recharge, but talking to this lovely lady reminded me that we've got a phylactery (or something like that) to destroy.

Sorry about the weak and infrequent posts, folks. My exam schedule is pretty punishing (1-2 per week, every week), and I usually forget to check in as often as I should. I'll do my best to drop in at least once every few days.

Thanks for checking in, Doom! I am sure that things are busy for you. Thanks for sticking to it.

Actually , I was wondering the same thing. The pace has really slowed down, and I'm still not seeing a lot of engagement from everyone. I know that all our our schedules are very tight right now. If there's something that needs to be done, please let me know.

Myself, I'm fine - it's a bit of work for me to REMEMBER what all has happened in the past - gamewise - but I still pretty much check in daily.

That's good! I'm glad that you are checking daily for updates. I try to update as often as I can, depending on how the group's reacting to the events in the active thread. However, I have to wonder why folks haven't posted right now, because there's a dragon looking over two characters (called out in the post) asking for a response, and that was established over a week ago. I've gotten that Doom is hip deep in Vet school, so he understandably shows up when he can. In fact, I'll send him a note to check up on him.

This current action isn't something that I'd just finesse, for a number of reasons, least of which is that this group hasn't shown itself to be particularly cohesive, and certainly not close to the realm where one member can speak for other members. It's like an all-star team, where, sure, you're all playing together right now, but there isn't any history between the group, and so the team-play aspect is a bit skewed (in an interesting way). There's still a lot of (understandable) distrust. Second, usually when a dragon asks a character a question, they expect an answer, not a deferment.

Ah! Yes, I have felt that of late Malak has taken the lead over Aros a fair bit, so I thought I'd wait until Doom had a chance to post before I did. Shoulda mentioned that here, I suppose. My appologies.

Would you like me to just go ahead?

Yeah, that's essentially why I was wondering if we needed to take a hiatus.

Y'know - despite ALL this time I've had to form Malak's personality...he still ends up a lot more guarded and suspicious than I had originally envisioned him.

FYI: Cardio exam today? NAILED IT. Possibly the best I've done to date.

Just checked: best I've done on an exam (not a quiz or a project) all semester. Maybe last semester too; I don't have that data saved.

Make sure you delete all your records before next semester, so you can say the same thing sometime around December.

I'll have to: I got a 97% on my last parasitology exam. Kinda makes up for the anatomy exam that I failed.

Eight more days...

Hey-O!

When I tell her you said she was a cow, she's going to be pissssed...

My pharm exam on friday went ok; I passed it by one question (which was worse than I expected), but I was carrying a 4.0 in that class until then, so I'm still in good shape. Parasitology is monday, Physiology is tuesday, Anatomy lab and lecture exams are thursday, and Diagnostic Imaging is Friday (with the option to take it wednesday).

Right now, though, it's Fuck This Shit o'clock. I'm off to bed.

So just FYI, as of about 30 hours ago, I am now married. It's pretty rad, although to be honest it's not much different than it was before (except that at all the wine-tasting events we go to, people are giving us free champagne). Just thought you guys might like to know.
