HNT Time Again

Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday, everyone. Actually, this would be a Fully-Nekkid Thursday, but I'm only posting half of me. No artistic effects this time, just a good ol' shower door.


In other news, I found the Open Office stuff on my laptop and started outlining my largest lost work. I remember thinking I had some clever things in there, but I can't seem to recollect most of them. On the brighter side, maybe that means they weren't really all that clever. :oP

No great bruises at sparring tonight. I smashed my shin bruise again, but I don't think I did anything new to it. Not that I can tell anyway. I remembered to use the drills we've been working on, so I feel much better about that. It's always hard for me to integrate new stuff into my sparring. Once it's in there, I'm fine, but having to think about it slows me down. I'm getting better at integrating, though. The first time I tried thinking while sparring (early on), I just blew up, LOL! I'm getting better at reading my opponent and getting out of the way, then back in with my own kicks. I still need to work on light contact to the head, though. I do land some head kicks, but I still pull too much, which will make it hard to actually hit well at a tournament.

Swimming tomorrow. Wow! Friday already?!?

I made a deal with a boy at TKD a few weeks ago. He wanted a Jedi costume like I made for each of my kiddos. Well, no such thing as a free lunch, right? I knew his mom had been trying to get him to be more careful about his school-work (he's hsed, too) so I told him that for every 100% he got on a test (any subject) I'd make him a piece of the outfit. He got really close last week in both math and spelling. This week he did it! So today I delivered part one of his outfit. :o) I don't think he realises he's raising the bar for himself with all this good work, LOL! But he was really excited about it and it made my day. :o)

Then tonight I got all inspired and whipped up a rice bag (nuke it for 2 mins and it's like a hot water bottle) for The Prawn, since I realised she doesn't have one of her own (the other 3 do) but we are OUT of rice!! How can that be?!?!? Argh! I haven't sewn for a long time. I hate being thwarted in my attempted projects.

Fal, I have Sitemeter, you know. I see you there in France. How's the IMM? I'm dying of curiosity. I suppose that is your evil plan. Sigh. Were you a medieval torturer in a former life?

Did I mention how much I love Peter Gabriel? **blissful sigh**

ohhhhhhh we should have a nice fight sometime - i've been fighting for about 10 years now...kickboxing...my style is called Mugendo, which is a bit like licensed streetbrawling with a bit of ballet thrown in...

Candace said...

Ooohhh! Do you think the other bloggers would pay to watch? :o)

Egan said...

Jungle, you making shit up again?

Faltenin said...

I suppose I can't hide much more then...

It's just too hard to post right now. Maybe I'll comment-lurk for a while.

Candace said...

Ah, Fal, I'm sorry. Selfish of me. :o( I'll send you those stories to distract you if you give me somplace I can send them to. They were actually backed up and not lost in the great cosmic toilet that sucked down my novel!!

Egan - what about blowing your nose in the pool? (don't worry, we didn't) Jungle doesn't make stuff up. OK, well I have no way of qualifying that, but she seems wild enough and in shape enough to be a kickboxer.

Candace said...

BTW, Frank, don't I deserve a comment on my HNT? ;o) You don't have to make a blog - someone told me that you can click out after entering your name and, I think, e-mail addy. But I think you should make a blog. Even if it's just for listing great films, books, musicals, etc. :o)

Faltenin said...

Don't worry babe. It's just hard the day you realize you're toxic for others :(

OK - switch face upside down so it's a smile... let's start a fight!

"Don't give up" is beautiful, but "Solsbury Hill" still beats it one-handed!!!

Candace said...

You're not toxic, therefore she must be a wench. :o)

Ok, it's going to be hard to fight over that since I love Solsbury Hill. Though I might take Red Rain over that. I guess it would depend on my mood. However, given the choice of getting only one Peter Gabriel song for the rest of my life (which had better not ever be a choice I have to make!), it would have to be "In Your Eyes" (which, ironically, is playing right now.)

Candace said...

Hey - speakina which - did you answer my Q about the kitty eyes - is that you in there?

Candace said...

Looking at the distortion again, I just thought of a great new line: "Does this shower door make me look fat?" LOL!!

tshsmom said...

Fal, your "harem" would beg to differ on that toxic comment!

Candace, the only thing fat on you, is your bruises. ;)

Candace said...

LOL - you're right about the harem! And why thank you. :o)

Mkae said...

I almost missed this one. Very nice Candace. Is this a usual Thursday thing? Do I need to change my morning routine now? :)

Candace said...

LOL! Thanks, MKae. :) Yep -see Half-Nekkid Thursday for details. I've only done 3 or 4 so far.

Whether you change your Thursday morning routine or not is fully (or at least half) up to you. ;o)

thisismarcus said...

These just get better every week :).

Candace said...

Thanks, Marcus. :) See what I meant about tit for feet? ;o)
