i wore my hair today like the elves from lord of the rings, with the top half pulled back and a long braid on the side. i put on the two towers soundtrack and curled up reading some more of the book for awhile. last night Marianne and i went out for a drink and a chat, of which was incredibly enlightening, and something i think we both needed. i need to make more plans to spend time with the girls from work (err, ex-work, i suppose...) before i leave. there's much more to say, but i don't have the heart or the words to speak it right now. perhaps back to lord of the rings and solitude.
