And anyway, werenīt you wallowing in Marseilles less than two weeks ago? Bit fickle...
Well, it's a wee bit more complex than that (isn't it always?). I'm going to be taking jmd's course starting in March, and I knew that I'd need a break before that. So I signed on for an IDS with Shining Woman (which didn't last), and then I switched to Liber T/Thoth. Now, perhaps I was nudged in that direction by something I read here - yes, now that I think about it, I was - but I do have a handful of Thoth-derived decks: Thoth, Liber T, Cosmic, Light and Shadow (in order of perceived 'purity' to that Thoth tradition, lol) - and I did have a lovely large-sized beautifully-printed Thoth that I sold a while back.

Now, while Thoth will always be available, I keep hearing that the newer printing (out of Germany?) is *much* worse. So if I don't buy the OOP version now, it will only be much more expensive in the future!

(I'm enabling myself here, guys...)

Ouch! Stop that! I've got enough of a world of hurt going on right now - my thumb started triggering (due to trying to shuffle my Vieville into submission a while back), and I finally saw an MD yesterday.

She said: "you can have a steriod shot or you can have surgery".



I'm now on a 2-week sick leave, and with my thumb in a splint (after opting for the shot) I CAN'T SHUFFLE THE WAY I ALWAYS HAVE!!!

So... I really, really, really, need to find that large Thoth!! You know - retail therapy!
