It doesn't feel entirely real yet but that could well change when the credit card bill arrives. Fortunately I got paid today, which will help.
In other news, I have been playing a lot of Lord of the Rings Online thanks to tyasante. My lore-master elf is now up to level 15 and doesn't get killed nearly as much as she used to.
My dad's been eyeing the game up too, so if I do decide to buy it (which I think I will) I may have someone to split the cost with.
