He Who Wins Shall Be the Conqueror

The laurels are not mine: there shall be no triumph, no confetti, no preseerves... Despite my sterlingest efforts (4100 words! In three hours! In a sixteenth century castle!), I am defeated. Oi, moi, woe is me, alack comma alas...
desperance, sir, I bow beneath your chariot wheels. Name your cake!

In other news, at least the eternal emo book is finished. Yay. Now I can think about something else, though no doubt it will now need re-writing. The sun is shining, we are surrounded by early modern splendour and I am on holiday with only one skirt. (Long velevet and lace and so on burgundy.) The marquis scents castles ahead and is growing restive... I must away. Be good out there.

Consolation crisps?

Not sure when you get home, but am pretty much confined to house with sick spidermonkey (?swine flu?). If you want to brave the germs, I can provide crisps, or I could escape briefly as far as the Blue. Or we could wait... Friday next week looks good for celebrating if I survive two tutorials and a French exam on Mon, Weds and Thur.

And yay! finished! Go you! Happy castling!

We get back on Saturday, but alas I shall be busy on Friday (en route for a work thing in Bristol). But I'm sure we can sort out something.
I hope Spider feels better soon.

That was a very sneaky way to announce you've finished!!!!

Yay for you and virtual cake, even if you did not win the great race of doom, you crossed the finish line and in this case it's what matters.
