Never a Profound Thought When I Want One

Well, lacking any profound thoughts, I guess I'll just engage in some chit-chat. A lot of the value in a journal, after all, is not the big moments, but the cumulative effect of lots of little ones, or something like that.

Kung Fu tonight was something of a change-up ... we normally have a routine of nine different types of crunches, doing 20 of each (180 total). Tonight, we did 100 ... of each type. 0.o

Well, I say "we" ... I doubt anybody in the class actually did all 900 crunches (not even Sihing), but most people did some ungawdly amount. I would estimate my own performance at around 600 total.

Owie. 0.o

Let me just think about that a minute. I did 600 crunches. In a 10-minute period. That's an average of 60 crunches a minute.

Owie, I say. -.-

I also learned a new move in the Lightning Fist form ... I'm about a third of the way through that, and I've done all of the floor movements. I am guessing the yellow belt will be within reach by March at the latest. =)

Then came home and took the evening off to watch videos with laurie_robey, since I've been cranking out art so much since I got back from MFF. Just needed a break. We watched some of the animated Mr. Bean series, including a "making of" featurette, and the "Christmas Party" episode of Nero Wolfe, which is actually one of my favorites. It has a lot of nice, subtle, but strong plumbing of the bizarre friendship between Wolfe and Archie, even if the "solving of the mystery" part is not exactly brilliant deductive work. ;)

So now, I'm off to bed, where I hope to not have nightmares about demons forcing me to do crunches for all eternity.

G'nite, everybody, and have a wonderful tomorrow!
