smirking half-hawk

things from my head

Much got done today. Well, not that much, but enough. We've assembled shelves in the dining room, and put wheels on the white rack. The booze and the microwave have found their homes, as has Zil's stereo, which I plan to attach to my mp3 collection for CHEESE.

CHEESE, for those who don't know, is the Curgoth Halloween Excellent Exciting Spooky Extravaganza. Or something like that. In any case, it's November 1st. So, be there.

This evening, we went to Salad King for a very tasty dinner. I've discovered that I need to go higher on the spice scale than I did last time; I will go to 5 chilies next time instead of three. I'm developing a higher tolerance.

After that, we went to see Kill Bill part one. I liked it. I liked it a lot. I'm all over that movie like StB on a zombie movie. I think StB will like it, though not as much as I did. N__W will likely hate it. LiquidAB will probably either want to see it multiple times, or hate it with the passion of a thousand suns.

I left the theatre with my brain in martial arts mode. I need to find a new place to train. I want to go back to jujitsu, preferably a fairly traditional, non-sports oriented place that also teaches kenjutsu and jojutsu, as I've always wanted to learn those two. I'm having a hard time finding a school that teaches what I want to learn. A lot of jujitsu places these days teach grappling Brazilian style jujitsu, and while there's nothing wrong with that, it's not what I want to study. I need to get some references and ask around.
