  1. As long as the *bottles* aren’t rusty, you’re doing great! Seriously though, those bartending tricks are cool. Did you once tend bar? Or is it just one of the skills in your juggling repertoire?
  2. Sounds like there are specific things that your body doesn't like. Definitely worth seeing how those things can be modded (as your chair idea), rather than just stopping. I know that in our martial arts classes, the profs are good about giving you modified or alternate movements to compensate for injuries, or as is often the case, just being kinda on the creaky side of over the hill. Maybe yours are willing to do something like that?
  3. Ya, IRL I'd rather fight like Peter Quill - DANCE OFF! Congrats on the interview!
  4. Can’t wait to see the pictures!
  5. Sounds like you were more annoyed about not being able to take out your trash than you were scared of the bad guy. Such hard-core cleaning!
  6. Whew! I'm tired just reading all that! You are having an Assassin Adventure Life™ for sure.
  7. Sounds like you pushed through a tough day and gave it your all.
  8. Sorry your muscles are playing up. Injuries are so frustrating. I'm glad you're going to see someone about them though, it's always best to be careful. But nonetheless, it looks like a lot of progress has been made - look at all those colored bars!
  9. I'm a one-person, one-client business. The guys I work for are amazing clients, they pay right away and they are endlessly patient with my schedule. I will say that the work I do for them is good; I won't let a shoddy piece of code stand and I hate forcing users to work around crappy functionality or UI. Also, I undercharge. Both because I appreciate the guys I do work for, and because I feel so guilty about my lack of reliable output. When I'm on top of things, I put in 30-40 hours a month, when I'm spinning out in a denial/shame spiral, I'm lucky to get 10. I just need to keep applying the lessons I learned when I changed my eating habits and started working on fitness...that starting is hard, but never as hard as I imagine it will be, and that the rewards feel amazing. I have been a lifelong procrastinator (much longer than I've been a poor eater or in poor physical shape) so I have a deep hole to climb out of, step by step. And it is way too easy to get distracted by shiny objects and cat videos.
  10. Oooh, pretty. I see why you feel so accomplished! I was curious, is the butter knife inside for weight or for stiffness? I suppose I would be worried about it possibly popping out during use, but that’s probably because I don’t understand enough about the construction.
  11. But the good news is, you’ll already have bandages on hand. And I’m sure kitty will call emergency services for you. Because cats are super helpful that way.
  12. Like when you have to step off the mats mid-class to assess whether your breakfast is going to stay in place or not. So far, I haven't lost the battle but it's been a near thing.
