About this Journal
"I don't really know why I have one of these bloody recorders. I hardly ever use it as I'm too damn busy trying to get work done, unlike some people who - what, are you recording me right now? Get that thing out of my face, or I'll eat you! (sigh) Yes, I'm joking. I don't eat my friends. (sigh) Oh, stop crying, Susan. I'm not going to eat you. Why, do I look fearsome? Then put that bloody thing away and make some tea, would you? (sigh) Don't be daft, dear. I'm not an alien or anything."

You Are Fencing
You're competitive but not brutally so. You compete to make yourself better.
You find having an opponent to be challenging and rewarding.
You are fierce when you're in a competition, but you don't wish your rivals any real harm.

You are The Sun

Happiness, Content, Joy.

The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.

Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.

The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.

Leman,

I've reached the House, soaked with rain and chilled to the bone - not that the cold bothers me, per se, but I think James was a bit miffed about the carpets in the hall...

Off to have tea now. I miss you, Sarah. Have you e-mailed or spoken with Jack yet?

Current Location: The Hub
Just taking a moment to bid you all 'farewell'. I've had a super visit to Cardiff and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the lot of you. You endured me - and my news - quite well, and I appreciate it greatly. Now I get to break it to the crew in Scotland...

I'm off on the train day after tomorrow, so not quite gone, but you know how things can be? You suddenly realize you're running late and there's so much you haven't done yet.

I thought I'd best say 'goodbye' now, while I had the time.

You are all, of course, welcome to visit up at the House, any time, separately or as a group, though I'm sure someone will have to stay behind to monitor the Rift and so on. Should you ever wish to chat, I can be e-mailed and pinged and the Stars know what else, day or night.

Treasure one another. Life is far too fucking short.

Slainte.

Och, don't you answer your mobile these days? 

(sound of laughter and cars passing)

Anyway, just wanted you to know that I'll not be over to your place this evening. I'll be staying with Sarah Jane, who has invited me to spend the remainder of my visit with her. 

(chuckle)

We'll see if she regrets that decision or not. Anyway, my thanks to you and Ianto - and Gethin and Bronwyn - for your gracious hospitality. I'm not completely out of your hair yet, Jackie-boy, but I did do some laundry this afternoon, while folks were napping and/or absent from the house. The sheets are done and folded on the guest bed.

See you soon, I'm sure. We still need that chat.

(sigh, more traffic passing)

Well, I need that chat with you, anyway. The one with you and Ianto will be a separate occasion.

Anyway, haven't I rambled enough already? Best to the family. 

Good night, Jack.

(call disconnects)

Sorry this took so long. I've been distracted, trying to keep in touch with things happening back at the House and catch up with the reading I'm behind on and seeing the sights of Cardiff and all...

Jack,

You and I need to have a little chat. Did you wish to do so through the system here or in person?
