Yup. This is my last HNT at age 36. Next one will be, like, totally wizened and scary. Don't laugh too much. I ran out of ideas after Fal knocked my socks off with his. Actually, I'm not wearing socks, which means that by default, it knocked my undies off. Surprise, surprise. Anyway, I came home wiped out after class and sparring and all I could think of was the new mountain block we started learning today (hence my lack of perfection, LOL!) So voilà. Yeah, I should have tightened and retied my belt first. But I didn't. This is the ragged-out me.
How come hardly any of you folks do HNT? Egan, you haven't even done a FKT in forever. Those were a scream. :-)
GUtTEr MuNKi and I watched "La Femme Nikita" last night, and I could SWEAR that Alan Rickman (*pant pant*) was the pharmacist at the beginning, but IMDb says no. While I did enjoy the film, I would change 2 things. 1) Have her totally get it on with Bob (mmmmm Bob) and 2) give it a GOOD ending - or even an ending, period. If you watch this film, watch it in French with Eng subtitles if need be. Do NOT watch it with the English voiceover, which is so off base and just poorly done it's laughable :-P Well, unless you're drunk and just want to laugh.
GuTteR MunKi pulled a groin muscle in sparring tonight. Can you say OUCH boys n girls? Yeeeeeeeeouch. And he was so bummed, cuz it was the first time we've done free sparring in a while and he was going to get to spar the new BIG guy, but alas. :-( I know how bad it sucks to be sitting there watching instead of sparring since I had to do it a few times on account of my knee - which, BTW is doing waaaaaaaaay better, so I'm not going to the Dr. (surprise, surprise ;-) )
Today I actually cranked out a bunch of a new kids' book I'm working on. Woo hoo! Oh, and my poem went up at Justus Roux's for the month of June. It was based on a dream I mentioned a few mos ago. The poem is under a pen name (since I write for kids under my real name) but if anyone wants to check it out, I can email the link and tell you which is mine. It's actually my least fave of the 3 I submitted, LOL! But I can send the others, too. Just let me know. Oh yeah - milkmaidenster at gmail dot com.
I got to hold that baby again. I know I've said I'm over the baby thing. And I am. I think. No, really I am. But oh my, babies are just so - - *sigh* I love babies. He's really starting to develop a personality now, too. Today he was looking over my shoulder at the big red spots on the kicking targets and smiling up a storm. Awwww. Such a cutie-boy. I got to feed him today and even though it was a bottle, which makes for a rather different feeding position than I'm used to, he did a lot of the same things mine all did while "dining" at that age ;-) and it really brought back the memories - little tiny starfish hands closing and opening earnestly as he drank, little bitty eyes (ever notice how perfectly *tiny* babies' eyes are?) wandering here and there, taking it all in. Just the contented look on his face was so similar to my little babes's, and his little tummy getting all *ROUND* when we has full - like a wee tick, LOL! We always called our nurslings "the milk-tick." Flattering, I know. :-P OK, enough of that. I will spare you more sweet little tiny perfect baby details.
I know I suck at getting HNTs up for the actual day of Thursday. Maybe I'll prepare ahead next time. In the meantime, I'll pat myself on the back for getting it up before midnight. :-P
