Having slept on the proposal (figuratively, not literally) it doesn't seems as bad as it did at 2 AM. I'm going to finish it off in the next couple of hours and then send it off.
In more important news:
The gods have smiled upon the Takaoka Nabe Festival (and ME) and have delivered a beautiful, sunny day. In a few short hours I will be walking through the streets of Takaoka feasting on hot, steaming bowls of nabe (whatever it turns out to be).
