I love weekends

What a week! And I don't mean that in a good way. My class had organized a party yesterday, to earn some money for our school trip to Iceland, and we all had to be there to keep an eye on things. Not only do I have a slight fear of crowds, but I also despise techno music, which is what they played for five whole hours. I thought I was about to go mad. And I didn't get home until 3 AM either, because the cycle tracks were completely snowed under.
And as if that isn't enough my physics teacher has also decided that we don't work enough (I'm up till midnight doing homework almost every single night), so he has doubled the amount of homework. More reports, more exercises, more chapter tests... But *he* hasn't even read the reports I handed in sometime in October.

So, all in all, I'm glad it's weekend. I haven't got any school on Monday or Tuesday, so I can catch up with the homework then I guess. Right now it's time for tea, chocolate, Pink Floyd and writing! I've written more than 2000 words this week, which is rather good I guess. During NaNo I could write three or four thousand words a day if I had to, but then I just wrote without thinking about *what* I was writing. Not that what I write now is perfect (there are still ninjas and UFOs), but I'm doing a little bit of research while I write. And I've got other stuff to do as well. I'm still not completely finished with my column for the StCP, which should have been posted on the site ten days ago. Oops. But at least I'm finished with my art school project now, and thank Eru for that. The next time there's one of those projects I'm not participating (or maybe I just should have started earlier).

And it's time to finally order those books! I *think* I'll buy these:

The Kalevala
The Song of Roland (couldn't find it in French *sigh*)
Les Lais de Marie de France
The Twelve Caesars
Histories (by Herodotus)
The Aeneid
Agricola and Germany

Yes, I know. I'm buying seven books instead of six. Sue me ;)

Lol, there's a bilingual Old French/German edition of the Song of Roland, but I'm not sure that what you're looking for. :)

And the pest upon that Physics teacher. Maybe carving him some kaunan runes would help? *evil grin* Not that I believe in that stuff, but as a writer, one can have fun with it.

Dunno if an Old French/German edition is such a good idea. I can't speak German and my French isn't exactly brilliant - I can't even read Le Petit Prince without a dictionary :P

Hm... kaunan runes... good idea ;) I must try that...
