Text is wench and Link is

For my part, more of one and two. That's what it feels like, at least (all that fetch and carry, kwim?). Not so much of three. I like to keep it clean -- this is a family show.

More than this, I cannot say. There's some stuff I'll keep on the hush hush, and my employment is one of those things. So all names and identifying features have been altered in this blog. I especially like using ancient history words, so you'll see a lot of that.

Ive updated this post for some terminology (read: aliases) I use a lot. I'll make more additions as necessary. Many thanks to and Wikipedia for the defs.

Agora noun. A Grecian marketplace, the employer of scullery maids and a competitor of the Souk.

Ash biographical name. Ash (Ashleigh) is a bodyguard at the Souk. Built like an Amazon, she is my accomplice in mischief and mayhem. She has a twin brother named Zach.

Dromedary noun. A one-humped camel, sold in the Souk.

I scrubbed the old site content -- I wanted to make some major changes to what I was talking about, and why. So this is pretty stripped down for now. Some of the old posts may be replaced in the future.

An update: I'm about $150 away from paying off one of my debts, which is about 2 months later than I had planned, but not too late for what I really needed to do. I'm cutting down on my hours at work, probably substantially.

Now that one big debt has been paid, I'll start building the e-fund and then snowflaking. So far, things are ok.
