I'm rereading Pamela Dean's Tam Lin. Good stuff.

Hm. Brazil beat Belgium. So now England gets to play Brazil. Oh well, may the best team win. And may it be England.

One of my coworkers got a birthday present from her husband of a pair of tickets to go out and stay in Japan for the fortnight and watch the rest of the World Cup. Believe me, at work today, her good luck was admired by all in very envious tones. ;)

Amazon informs me that a kanji dictionary (Kodansha) is on the way. The day of actually having to start trying to learn the stuff looms closer and closer.

I wish work didn't have nannyware. Alas, I canot wish for my friends to have smaller vocabularies.

Interesting thought re Yaone and overcompensation, from Saiyuki, which I must take care to remember.

The dove descending breaks the air
With flame of incandescent terror
Of which the tongues declare
The one discharge from sin and error.
The only hope, or else despair
Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre --
To be redeemed from fire by fire.
(_Little Gidding_, TS Eliot)
