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.
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!
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!
I threatened to have an “Office Space” moment with the printer in my office earlier this week- for those who aren’t sure what I’m talking about, or just need the satisfying sight of someone taking a baseball bat to a malfunctioning printer, take a look at the video below:
So you all may have read how I have been getting into podcasts recently, and this is one I randomly found while searching for medical history podcasts (because I’m a nerd):
The hosts are a married couple who talk about all the silly and unusual things people have tried throughout history in the name of science and medicine. It’s pretty funny, and informative at the same time.
