Nope and congrats, Inky :D

And by the way, the loud music stopped at 6.30pm on saturday and didn't come back: hurrah!
(considering it started around 10.30, they must have hired that for 8 hours, hehe)

Oh wow I'm a Kingkiller. That's nice. Coming back to it, we still didn't know why Rothfuss's the Kingkiller Chronicles was called that, what with the Doors of Stone latency. Anyone have got any speculations?

I'm pretty sure that even Rothfuss does not know the answer to that question :)

I really hope it's not Simon who becomes King and will be killed by Kvothe. Ambrose would be to easy and there aren't any other characters who may become a King we already know.
That's said, I read the books when they came out (or shortly after) so my memory may not be the best here.

Simon (actually Simmon) is Kvothe's best friend :)

This past week I went to the theatre and saw "How not to drown" - https://www.thickskintheatre.co.uk/hntd
It was great, and if you ever have the chance to go, don't miss it :)

I've made some serious changes with my life.

Now, I wake up at 6 am. Drink two full spoon of apple cider vinegar (mixed with water but still disgusting). Walk to the subway (5 km).

Besides, I've started intermittent fasting. I only eat between 12 and 4 pm.

I'm done with kickboxing for now (my bones need to heal) and starting to either yoga or climbing.

My main motivation is health. It's getting harder and harder to keep my shape as I age. I need to get a better shape before it's too late :)

Yes it gets much harder to maintain fitness with age you are also carrying an acumulation of injuries. every time I went back to running I wound up hurting myself and preventing further exercise. very depressing but not as bad as not being acheive what you once could.

Good luck with the Climbing and Yoga both are great ways of exercising everything, fasting I am dubious about. I hope you are not counting water in that and drinking more than you need?

Injuries are really a big trouble. It's easier to injure yourself and it takes more time to fully heal. It's sometimes depressing to realize that you are no longer your young self :)

Water, black coffee and black/green tea don't break the fasting period. I try to drink 2/3 liters of water a day. Too much water will start harming the kidney.
