Someone in the comments rightly pointed out that being an illusionist doesn’t necessarily mean being RESTRICTED to illusions…although I’m starting to worry that we’re getting too predictable. I have no idea where I got the name “Saradna” from, but that makes a decent number of named wizards now: Aeryn Thornheart, Zezem the Cruel, Castigan, Tzetzem’Tze’Tzemoze, and now Saradna. That’s five. I can tell you that every wizard thus far named plays a part in our story, whether large or small, and there are roles for at least two more wizards…but those are a ways away.
Everyone keep your fingers crossed…today is the championship game of my fantasy football league, and I’m in it. Right now, I’m winning by 18 points, and my kicker has only his kicker remaining. But his kicker plays for the Denver Broncos in tomorrow night’s game, and 18 points is definitely doable, if not very likely. There’s a BIG difference between winning the championship and losing it, at least in terms of winnings, and there’s never been a time in my adult life when I couldn’t use the money!
Also, this is the first time since I met my wife five years ago that I’ve actually finished in the money, so she can finally stop thinking that I’m throwing my money away! I USED to be awesome at fantasy, but as my writing career has become more and more time consuming, fantasy football has been one of the corners I’ve had to most sharply cut in terms of my full attention.
Anybody besides me a passionate football fan? Who’s your team? I root for the insensitively named team from Washington, my home town, although I decided a year or so ago that I couldn’t continue to support them with my dollars until they changed the name. I’m hoping that they wise up and become the Washington Americans some time real soon.
All right, it’s Sunday for me, which means I’m exhausted AND I have to get up at the crack of darn tomorrow. I’ll talk to you guys on what will be Christmas Eve for you!
