Last Unwizened HNT

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 voilĂ . 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

I really, really want to photoshop this image...

Maybe we could associate your pic & mine. "GIRLS! Don't let this happen to you! Learn TKD today!"

Candace said...

LOL! Do whatever you want with it. :-) That's pretty funny! :-) "Tired of waiting for your Prince Charming? Learn TKD and go HuNTing!!" }:-) Muahahaha!!

~d said...

MAN! Nice stomach, nice arms...GIRL! You look SUPER! WOWEE!

Toby said...

We maternal types NEVER get over the baby thing. We could have 47 kids and still get all gaga over a baby.
L pulled a groin muscle lifting bags of quikrete last weekend. He was all better in 3 days. Not bad for an old guy. ;)
I don't do HNT because NOBODY wants to see half nekkid pictures of this old broad, with the exception of my dh!

Toby said...

I sometimes wish you were my mom.

Candace said...

TSmom - I guess it's true. There's just something about them. Sigh. I wish my sister would have babies so I could play with them and hold them and then hand them back when they started to drive me nuts. ;-) Alas, it is never meant to be. SIL is done too, so no more babies from our generation. Kinda sad. :-( I'll have to find a rent-a-baby when I need a fix. ;-)

Toby - Damn, that's sweet. :-) And I didn't even put up a picture of yesterday's brownies for you. (they disappeared before I could - the kids had a couple of friends over.) I'll have to make another batch.

Do you wear glasses to TKD? When you spar? I always take them off for swordfights. Unless it's with those wimpy wooden swords. I still got one arm left, so it's no problem unless I need to tie my shoes.

Candace said...

Yes, I wear glasses for class, but for sparring I have extremely nifty/sexy/attractive sports goggles. ;-) I don't show them here only because I fear attracting hordes of lust-crazed stalkers. You're smart to take them off for swordfights, because glasses are way more valuable than an eye.

Wow - you're down to one arm? You really are a Jedi then. Isn't that the final training requirement? You'll have to use The Force to tie your shoes.
