Well, I’m just about done here. I’m in the middle of packing, and I’m finally going back to the States. Supposedly for good this time. Well, not forever, but for this contract, anyway. I love London, but I’ve had about enough of it for now. Besides, it’s Christmas, and I need to be with my family and friends, not 3500 miles away. Speaking of that, why does everyone get so nasty this time of year? I always get cheered up when it’s almost Christmas, and everyone around me is so grumpy and violent. I’ve been listening to people be nasty for weeks now, and I’m sick of it. I don’t feel like fighting, and I just want to go home. And I want a White Christmas. And the next person who’s ugly to me (or someone near me) gets a punch in the mouth!
Yikes. I qualified on my first day in the Site Fights Nests. I’m totally excited, and even more nervous! Thanks to whoever voted for me! I also just got an email from a friend, verifying that I have something to do on New Year’s Eve, tho we don’t know what yet. So it’s been a good day already, and it’s only 8am…
I had an awesome time in Prague, and came back and found out that I’ve been approved for the Site Fights! How cool is that? I’ve been thinking of trying to enter the fights forever, but never thought I’d do it. Chicken. But now I’m approved, and my first fight is next Monday. I guess I’d better get going on my spirit page, huh? Prague was amazing. It was exactly like I expected, but better. The scenery was just as magical as I expected. All these incredible spires and cobblestone streets. But I expected it to be a very poor area, and war-torn, because of all the fighting that went on a few years ago. But it was neither. The people were all very well-dressed, and they all had very happy and healthy dogs, which I think is the surest measure of a society. They have this form of theatre called “Black Theatre,” that I’d heard was really clever, so I rushed right out and bought a ticket. It’s all performed in pitch darkness, with a blacklight pointed at the stage. People dressed in black move things around on the stage, but you can’t see anything, except these objects floating through the air. I knew while I was watching it that I was going to have a terrible time explaining it to anyone. It was very very cool. Prague was just generally very cool. I’d love to go back in the late spring sometime. It’d be nice to see the place in bloom, and with some color. Besides, it was cold!!
I’m off to Prague for the weekend (yippee!) so there won’t be any updates until Sunday, at least. Wish me a good time, and I’ll take more pictures!
