That is awesome. I've accidently sliced myself with a few of my swords (hazards of learning a new form I guess ) but not anything nearly as cool as chopping branches. Maybe I'll offer to help my mother with the yard work this spring, I don't have a yard or any trees, but she does. Hmmm, I do have a small cutting from my old roommate's plant cross-breeding thesis, but that is too precious to chop up (I'm really lucky that it is still alive, I tend to kill plants. My roommate, she had about 30 in our room and was cross-breeding most of them, very cool).
Ok, this is the end of my rambling post, I think it is time for me to sleep. If this doesn't make sense when I look at it in the morning then I will delete it.
