The Yggdrasil Report

Sorry for not posting in so long.

I've had a decent couple of weeks, without all this stuff to bother me. I'm back at home and I've been working hard at Heimdall. At first I was merely organising papers and the like, but then the CEO, Wilhelm Heimdall, asked me to tend to his personal library. The corporation primarily deals with construction, so finding a vast library of old Germanic and medieval texts was a pleasant surprise. We got around to discussing everything from Beowulf to the Volsunga Saga, and then he showed me several unique manuscripts that he has come across. He asked me to look at them and I was amazed. There were several abnormalities in the texts, which were in Old English, which I had never seen before. Indeed with the arrival of Viking invaders and the like some basic Old Norse words were introduced to the English language, but the amount here was far more than I had ever seen. Perhaps they originated in the Danelaw so there probably isn't much mystery here, but that doesn't make it any less interesting. In any case he was impressed by my display of knowledge on the subject and asked if I would like to review them again some time so I agreed, being the pseudo-philologist that I am.

In other news, I was nearly hit by a car on my way home. That was hardly pleasant.

Long time no see, Hermod. Glad you're okay. Think you could tell us any more about Heimdall Industries? I think I found the website for the company, but I'm not sure.

It's pretty plain for a business website, isn't it?

Oh My! We hope you're ok! Who would try to hit you? Was the guy drunk? Geez...did you get a look at the driver? That's very scary. A corvet almost ran me off the road last weekend and it was also unpleasant.

Glad to hear you like your new job!
