Now, what did I come in here for?

I know there was something I wanted to say, but darned if I can remember...

What follows is blogpost padding. Read at your own peril.

I re-read the book "You Are All Sanpaku" which has made me somewhat paranoid, and very curious about other people's eyes. I'm also eating a lot of brown rice. The nice thing about that is that figuring out what to have for dinner has become very easy. It's also very confusing. I mean, the macrobiotic diet is antithetic to low-carb diets. Or vice-versa. So who to listen to?

There's an attempt at leaving some white stuff on the ground today. Those crazy weather gods. They do like to tease.

I discovered where the magpie sleeps during the night: In the tree next to its nest. Exposed to whatever those crazy weather gods think of. I'm rather glad I'm not a magpie (though I think it would be fun to be a crazy weather god).

I wrote nothing yesterday. Well, I did, but it wasn't my novel. I finished up my course in the rise and petering out (because it didn't exactly fall) of the Roman Empire. A very interesting last evening in the lecture series. The end of the empire wasn't, really, because everything we westerners do today is rooted in the way of the Romans. But that's another blogpost (OK, I'd write about it now, but I don't have my notes with me).

Java mocca coffee is tasty. Totally incompatible with macrobiotics, but tasty.

OK, you can leave now.

I did little math yesterday; I switched books due to slow go. I did read lots in my philosophy textbook.

I finished up my course in the rise and petering out (because it didn't exactly fall) of the Roman Empire. A very interesting last evening in the lecture series.

There have had ten major battles at Edirne/Adrianople. It's just that 379 sorta sealed the deal.

The end of the empire wasn't, really, because everything we westerners do today is rooted in the way of the Romans. But that's another blogpost (OK, I'd write about it now, but I don't have my notes with me).

And anyways, the Empire went on in Byzantium until 1453. Gotta study that too!

Well, that's what my blogpost would be about: The three parts the Roman empire (d)evolved into.
