More randomness - Friday edition  
Am I the only person who has an unbearable love for bran muffins? The texture is so very flaky and yet dense, and the flavor is interestingly dark. Fricking yum.

It may also have something to do with the fact that this particular bran muffin is so soaked in honey that I have to eat it with a fork. HELLO I LOVE MY CARBS AND NO ONE WILL EVER TAKE THEM AWAY FROM MEEEEE.

Last night's eskrima class was a blast. diachrony, you would have loved watching. We were working with two-stick matching and mirroring patterns as brain teasers, and a lot of it looked like dance. It was really fun, though I'll be glad to get back to more fight-oriented stuff next week. Hitting things with sticks keeps me sane.

The office is practically barren today. Nothing going on, boredom and a headache starting in my temples. I may end up leaving early. That way I can do some laundry, get a nap in, and have some actual energy for movie night at a friend's house. We've been told to come in our jammies, which is always good. I expect the movie to suck (Paranormal Activities, filmed in patented Shaky-Cam, featuring Nau-see-uh-vision), but the company should make up for it. And besides, I enjoy making fun of bad movies! I want to see Piranha 3D, after all.

OK, time for some Excedrin.

I know I would love watching that type of class. I was obsessed with the youtube clip of the young woman leveling up in belts - the dancy part w/ two sticks (remember that clip?). I watched that over & over.

Did you request PTO yet? Mine was approved.

That's exactly why I knew you'd love it. We were doing all sorts of crazy things, and it was fun to do and to watch.

Request is in, should be approved soon!

(Your comment duplicated for some reason, so I deleted one of them. Just FYI.)

Ooh, could you point me to clips of this? I'd be interested to see what's involved.

This is the vid dio was referring to. It's not *exactly* what I do, but it's very similar. Our system is less structured, more focused on concepts and making them work in a practical sense, but this gives you an idea.

Ooh, neat! Yes, now I have a better idea of what you do. :D

Yes, it's the one _tallian_ linked, but I will go further and tell you my fave segment of it - even though I love the whole thing: the bit that starts at 1:45. IT HYPNOTIZES ME. I CAN'T STOP WATCHING IT.

There is another vid of the awesome Kim Townsend here. They are both from 2008 and I wish I could find more, but haven't had luck with that. She's great.
