Y'know, guilt isn't really our thing, at least institutionally. We're pretty good about making lots of extra things verboten (alcohol, tobacco, etc.) but in general we tend to be pretty cheerful about them.

I dunno that I'd want to subject my face to that.

when you are sparing, a reasonable gentlman won't wack you full strength in the face, that will happen when you actually have a bout. but it still hurts and can detur you from coming back.

I'll just have to be ready for when the time comes. For now I'll continue to work on my rudimentary skills and hopefully improve. I can see how the sparring really brings everything into focus, though.

Hmmm, MANLY things I've done lately:

2 marathons in 7 weeks

MANLY thing I did today:

in 30 minutes this morning I opened up the wife's car and replaced the brake switch and hood latch, then topped off the washer fluid and oil and checked. All the error messages are gone now.

Awesome.

I built a bed frame the other night retrofitting a futon frame onto two platforms I assembled. The thing is completely solid, firm, and supportive. The height is perfect for storing my boxes underneath and getting in/out of bed.

Not the prettiest thing but it's functional and perfectly fits the tight space that I have it in. There is seriously no room for a normal bed frame and I don't have a box spring to use those generic metal ones (little ability to store under those anyways). All in all it cost me $20 for the futon frame and everything else I scavenged.

I'll build a nicer bed frame when I move to a larger place, thinking something along the lines of this but in walnut:

COOL. Nice work. Although, that future design looking thing sucks.

Manly thing I did today:

Was accused by another attorney of being racist because I didn't agree with him on one particular issue. I kept my cool and I didn't take the bait. Harder to do than it sounds....

I carried a 240 lb butcher block countertop up two flights of stairs by myself, then logged into Styleforum to tell my e-friends in grenadine ties about it.
