last thursday i went with the late night sailing crowd (jenny hu convinced me to go….) and got hit in the face with the boom as i was getting into the boat. “ouch”. fortunately, the bruise and the cut are healing up nicely….

friday i did in fact go to aikido before descending into the ethanol induced haze of the rest of the evening…

the aikido class was a lot of fun, it was much smaller, one brown belt, three blue belts, and me. we did a lot of stuff in rondori (sp?) style, which means one person in the center, and other people around them in a circle, taking turns at being the uke. for the first time, i feel like i finally got a grip on a couple of throws.

saturday i failed to go to karate, due to still having, um, “illness” problems from the night before, getting over them, and waking up like 10 minutes before class and deciding discretion was the better part of valor.

sunday walked out to esplanade and picnicked with everyone. i blew bubbles.

monday jenny hu started teaching me to juggle pins. i have always been hopeless at juggling, but i was getting up to being decent with two, although not quite up to multiple tosses. i will have to practice more! and then in the evening, karate and aikido. both fun, more or less normal. i guess in aikido we were doing a lot more ki type stuff. one of these involved basically pushing at the shoulder of someone and trying to move them (and them not trying to move). the black belt i was working with kept exhorting me to push harder, but i *was*, and she thought i was going easy on her or something. *blush* i feel weak; i should go work out or something. karate was about normal, good fun. susan born was there!
