My Left Foot HNT

First a famous movie, and now an HNT coming to a blog near you!




Nothing too exciting. It will have better colour in a few days, as will the lump on my right shin. What hurts the most is the lump at the base of my leftmost toes, but that doesn't show up in pics yet. Bummer of a sparring night. Got to spar my arch nemesis, but neither of us did a good job of remembering to use the drills we've been working on. I'm not good at thinking *too* much while I spar. I was trying to get lined up for some of the defensive stuff we practiced, but it seemed one of us was always in the wrong stance for it. I did use the jump spinning back kick I've been working on, but came up a little short. Next time I'll try to really go for it. Then I sparred John and kept hurting him. I was trying hard not to, but he kept ending up beyond where I thought he was headed and I got him once in the top of each thigh. Argh. So that match didn't last long.

The raccoon, on the other hand, is having a good night:

She's still out there grazing as I type.

Swimming tomorrow. Hurrah! Swimming is always lovely.

HOLY SMOKE! that raccoon dialled pizza hut, ordered a pizza, paid for it and then enjoyed his meal?

Happy HNT! Once again, a day late for me. Nice foot.

Nice bruise. Very impressive.

And it's not fair that the raccoon eats better than I do. Sigh.

LOL! Our raccoon is a very happy critter!

I have a much better bruise starting to show where my big lump (affectionately known as my second knee) is. Ack!

You'd better soak in a hot tub instead of a swimming pool!

I love raccoons and swimming pools. I pee on both.

Candace said...

I did end up in a nice hot bath. :o) Aaahhhh!

Egan, U.P. Freely. Too freely! ;o)

Egan said...

So shoot me for peeing. What's the red mark on your foot?

Candace said...

Sparring bruise from Tae Kwon Do. :oP Most likely an elbow. We wear Olpympic style pads, but we still get bruises, though I don't bruise nearly like I used to. I guess there is something to that "toughening up" thing. I always thought it was an Old Wives' Tale.

Oh! Unless you mean the red thing by the very bottom of the picture, in which case it's the bottom of my lounging-about pants.
