Now Drudge says Daniel Craig has been hit with a nasty bout of prickly heat. What's the angle here? Trying to make him look like a pansy? Oh well, every new Bond is met with BIG resistance at first. Some, as it turned out, for good reason, LOL! But even though I'm not into the sorts of films Craig has done, I think he's a very good actor and will pull off Bond very well, given a decent script. Or maybe I'm still hypnotised by those eyes.
Is it just me, or are they almost wolfish? In a good way. Rather peircing.
Ahem, excuse me, ah, on to other things. . .
Got kicked really hard and repetitously tonight. I'm not a pansy, really, ask dh. Was out of the hosp in under 24 hours after giving birth to each of my first 3 (under 12 in one case) gave birth to my last (pumpkin-headed!!) baby at home with no meds, have suffered a torn ligament without crying, have seriously turf-toed during sparring and finished the match even though I could barely walk afterward when the adrenaline stopped flowing. But tonight I actually wished for respite. Oy. We were doing sparring drills with partners and we were supposed to block the kicks rather than get out of the way. Fine, I've done that lots. But tonight, ow! I actally said something to dh afterwards (half-afraid to - REALLY don't want him speaking to the Master on my behalf) and he agreed that this dude kicks HARD, LOL! A lot of times, newer folk have to learn not to try to kill their opponent when it's just a drill. Also, you don't want to sacrifice speed for power when less power will earn you the same points and give you more speed to score even more. It's easy to get froggy as a newbie and just get all gung-ho, though. Silver Lining: it ought to toughen up my forearms, and elbows, and back of upper arms. . . But it hurts to rotate my left forearm right now. Arnica is my friend tonight. :oP What is the point of this whining? I guess since I don't do it IRL I need an outlet, LOL! That's enough for now.
We worked a bit on forms in class tonight after all the kicking. Tae Guk Chil Jang is the most interesting form yet. I finally have it down and it's so much fun!
Tomorrow will seem to disappear in a frenzy of TKD with teaching littles tomorrow, staying for my older 3 to do homeschool class, and going back in the early evening to ref kids' sparring (and taking all 4 to spar.) But after that it's sweet relaxation. I think I'm actually going to pick up a pizza for us on the way home, grab a movie or 2 (prolly - but not definitely - some chicky flick for me as John will be in the seething metropolis of Winona, MN) and we can settle in for a cosy evening at home with no getting up to be done the following morning. Ah, yes! :o) I'll have to remember to set an alarm for Thurs, though, with no John to wake me up. Movie suggestions?
Bonne Nuit! :o)
