OK, I’ve been called out on my crappy updating ways, so here’s my attempt to make amends. I’ve just had such a boring life lately!
After about a six-month hiatus, I went back to grappling today! Yay! This was inspired by many things, but largely by my brother challenging me to a grappling match, so I need to get back in form for the Very Exclusive Mason Family Tournament, scheduled for Whenever We’re In The Same Room Next. We can make t-shirts!
After six months, I have forgotten so much! But not everything, so that’s good. I even totally won two rounds of rolling. One was the rear naked choke, my eternal favourite choke. The other win may not count completely, because I had to get my rolling partner to talk me through the last half of the choke. I was almost there, I had her pinned, and then I made her tell me how to finish because I suck and Angela is so nice. Other fun thing: while practicing chokes I was trying to remind Angela to grab my head, but I was already kind of choking, so I couldn’t say anything, so I just kept hitting myself in the head, and she was like, “Are you tapping? Did you forget how to tap?”
I continue to kickbox, of course. I’m sort of getting to the point that I’m getting way fewer bruises, and the bruises I get are way lighter, which I know means I’m getting more hardcore and conditioned but also kind of sucks because I want my damn trophies. I am in pain, why can’t I get my props?
In other, desperately important, news I have started putting blueberry liqueur on vanilla ice cream, and it is pretty much heaven. The moral is, always do everything a booze salesman suggests. I have never been lead wrong, in all the one time I’ve done this.
