Happy Friday! Fall NY Open Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

It’s been one of those silly weeks where a bunch of little things go wrong (amazon package mix ups, getting to work late, pen exploding in my hands and ink getting everywhere… those kinds of things) but I dunno, I’m still in pretty high spirits.

Our team is heading up to New York this weekend for IBJJF’s New York Open, so that’ll be exciting. I decided not to compete to let my thumb/wrist continue to heal, but I’ll be running around coaching our teammates…. so if you see a woman hopefully just jogging, but possibly sprinting to a mat, hello, and I apologize in advance for all the yelling I’m going to do.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! No Swear November Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

Recently I decided that I’ve been been a little too loosey-goosey when it comes to dropping some f-bombs, and so in an effort to curtail that habit, I’m doing No Swear November: for the next 30 days I will be keeping it (fairly) clean.

And if I mess up and swear? A dollar will be going to Operation Smile– an organization that provides surgical procedures around the world to children with cleft palates.

If anyone wants to join me, just comment or let me know- otherwise, wish me luck y’all, and have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! Time to Start Getting Spooky

Happy Friday!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and Halloween my favorite holiday- it’s the fun of all the other holidays without the familial pressure of sitting down for dinner or stressing too much about who is going to visit who’s house….

Anyway, to start to get you all into the season, here’s the skit from SNL of a man who’s also all about this season, David S Pumpkins. Watch, enjoy, and have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Still in the ADCC Aftermath

Happy Friday everyone!

So everyone still seems to be posting clips, photos and reactions to last weekend’s ADCC results. And that’s understandable, it’s a big event that happens every other year and so there’s still going to be a bunch of hoopla, until the next superfight happens. It’s all exciting, but I’m a bit of a restless soul I guess and I’m already prepared to watch the next competition to take place, to see how things will shake out.

Anyway, just my personal thoughts. Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Thoughts While Training

Happy Friday everyone!

In the past while sparring I have a tendency to whistle or hum while training- I like to think it keeps my conscious mind occupied and allows the adaptive unconscious and muscle memory to do its thing- for the most part- uninterrupted.

I’ll usually have either the Super Mario brother’s theme stuck in my head, and lately the tune to “I Dream of Jeannie” has gotten itself into the rotation…. but then I saw this video, and now “Sweet Dreams” will probably be stuck in my head for a while…

 

Just wanted to share with you all, if nothing else for a little chuckle.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Failure to Launch

Happy Friday everyone!

This week was a little weird: I would start to write a blog post and then get caught up in another activity/emergency, and would leave a thought half finished in my drafts.

So, the good news is that I have some posts for next week about a variety of topics. The bad news is that they should have been up this week but suffered from a failure to launch. In penance I will go and watch that awful rom-com that starred Matthew McConaughey.

I don’t know if it’s actually that terrible, I just kind of hate rom-coms in general so I’m just assuming that it’s going to be awful. It could be someone’s favorite movie: who knows.

Anyway,  I’ll be back at it next week, but in the meantime have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Back to the Land of the Living (and Happy Labor Day Weekend!)

Happy Friday everyone!

This week was a bit of a doozy- I had a head cold that just knocked all the will and energy out of me…. but I’m slowly but surely coming back around to the land of the living, so there’s that.

For those in the States, have a great and relaxing Labor Day weekend, and for everyone else, just have a great weekend in general!

Happy Friday! Mountain Biking Edition – And We Didn’t Die!

Happy Friday everyone!

So while there is plenty of stuff to do on the water around Lake Tahoe, there’s also a good deal of activities on land as well, including mountain biking:

You’ll catch some stunning views of the lake in some spots, but this trail in particular had some harrowing parts where the trail was approximately a third of the width you see here, with a super steep drop to the left of you….

So again, lots of fun, totally glad we didn’t die.

Just wanted to share some photos with you all- with or without the death defying bike ride, it’s definitely a place you want to visit.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Friday! Aging Face Edition

Happy Friday everyone!

No, I actually did not end up using the aging face app…. thing. Firstly, my phone is getting old and slow and so I’m becoming really picky about what apps I install on it.

And second, I resemble my father so much that I’m pretty sure I know how I’m going to look when I get older- I’ll just be a paler, more feminine version.

Same strong chin and everything. Yay, genetics!

I just hope I will also be in a position when I’m older to adopt 4 dogs as well.

Adding them because well, who doesn’t like dogs? 

Have a great weekend everyone!
