I had something I wanted to write about today, but I'm having a hard time remembering what it was...

Read the Epic of Gilgamesh last night (well, a bit on Tuesday too) and it is fairly interesting. Neat to see where a lot of the high fantasy we've had in the past century or so came from... The grand quest to defeat the beast in the woods, the gods being petty and sending beasts after the hero, only to be defeated. It was also interesting to see a different retelling of Noah. Or at least I presume Utanapishtim is based on the same legends as Noah, since the stories are so similar.

That's about all I can think of... I know there was more I wanted to write about this morning, but I think most of it was from the dream I had at the end of the night, and it's since faded.
