...my ass. Holiday travel and year-end cleanup to do. So, I'm on strike today, and will probably be so for the next couple of days.

I'm watching videos...

Strindberg + helium--yes, as in that Strindberg. Apologies, but I forgot where I ganked this from.

And, if I don't get to chat with y'all before Christmas (There, I said it! What're you gonna do about it?), then you can sing along...

Because I'm too lazy to answer these sorts of questions myself, here are some frequently asked Filipino non-martial-art-related questions...

This blog's definitely been thin on entries, and even thinner on actual life updates. You can blame, in part, life at The Big Red School on the Hill.

I can, however, offer a quick breakdown...

Work: Job is still good. It has its days of course, but thus far the major benefits (steady pay, insurance, and a golden ticket to a lot of community activities) still outweigh the occasional pain in the ass. Even the fact that didn't get a shot for a position that most people (at work) think I had a better than even shot at getting. I should've at least (so I'm told) been a sure-shot for an interview. Welp, never got one, which is okay really, because it was one of those situations where I had absolutely nothing to lose, and everything to gain by trying.

The Wife: I spent the weeks before Thanksgiving helping recover from, as a friend put it, "A hot oil treatment to the face."

While this is usually the time of year when I would bitch about the general inconvenience of the holidays or the idiocy of taking time off from work to engage in activities that are generally more tiring than the job you get paid for only to have to return to said job at the end of it, I'd have to say that I've been pretty good about keeping to the routines I've set for myself.

The writing: Keeping me busy. Freebies out on teh Intarwebs here and there. The goal for '08 is to have more paid stuff.

Training: was pretty dismal in '07. No yoga this past summer, just some classes with a local kung fu instructor who I happen to work with. My sparring impressed. My bow-legged horse stances did not. I've resolved to at least go back more frequently after the New Year, and hook up with a local FMA guru--the one who suspiciously eyed my sticks at a seminar awhile back.

Okay, now I'm going to collapse.
