    Looking at the cuts and aches on my hand, I begin to wonder whether Michael Jackson secretly practised Jujitsu

    I don't often order a coffee, but when I do I always mistakenly ask the barista for an Americana.

    Fortunately to this day, no one has yet kept over the counter to attempt to break my arm, and favoured delivering a hot caffeine based beverage.

    @Van Zandt called me up out of the blue on the telly this morning. He was really confused about some UK vs. US grammar and asks me, "Why is it 'cancelled' in the UK but 'canceled' in the US with only one L?"

    Because we gave you that extra L in 1776, duh.

    I'd remind you that your July 4th joke is a bit late, but then you Americans like to be late for many things... like World War I, World War II...

    My FREEDOM DAY FROM HEATHENS joke is "Why are there no knock knock jokes about America? Because FREEDOM RINGS!" So you started off wrong. Tut, tut.

    That was a good clap back though, I have no good response xD.

    Is it weird that I think about you at least 2-3 times a week @Van Zandt ? It's not because I want to or anything. There's a truck that totes a landscaping trailer with "VAN ZANDT LANDSCAPING" whose driver lives in town. I see it all the time and I mumble that he's a dirty british redcoat every time I see him xD.

    Random musings: Have been employing sifu Google to teach myself 12-road Tan Tui for exercise purposes (have done parts of a couple versions of it in various classes over the years, but never got to the whole thing). I find it an extremely elegant solution to the problem of my hating cardio. It's martial, albeit abstract, therefore it's fun; the sequences are short and cyclic, so I can do any of them ad infinitum; they are of varying complexity, but never obtusely hard to perform, so I can lose myself in the technical execution (in a good way) without compromising the physical effort. Although I remain primarily a Karateka and prefer the basics of Karate, IMO kung fu forms generally make for better training than kata do.

    "My life has been full of terrible misfortunes, most of which have not happened."

    Saw this today and thought it was a nice summary of how anticipation of something can be much worse than reality :)

    It's Bonfire Night here in the UK.

    I realised July 4th is just the Americans turning up late for November 5th.
