Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Ok, ok, the silence was too much for me, so I relented to the massive unvoiced popular opinion and changed my photography page to thumbnails only/alt text on mouseovers. That way I can avoid lawsuits leveled by people who seriously injured themselves by scrolling too much (I don’t know, maybe their fingers could get caught in that little mouse wheel or something. One can always hope). In any case, the only thing I can get sued for now is bad taste and slander, and both of those are just too much fun to give up.

We got our monkey suits for the competition tomorrow. The teacher made a special point of reminding me to show up tomorrow…she knows that I am reluctant to enter the competition; that’s not why I’m studying Tai-chi Sword, after all. I’ll go, of course, just because it will be different and interesting, but I’m not going to take it all too seriously. One thing I really dislike is having to have a tassel on my sword. I’ve never used one before, but we have to for the competition. It’s extraneous and silly-looking and the damn thing keeps falling off or wrapping itself around the handle.

After I got back from sword practice, bought dinner and picked up my laundry, I found that the tape with the Enterprise premiere my friend Shawn sent had finally arrived! I immediately sat down and watched it, and I have to say they did a damn good job. I love the ship, the actors are top-notch, even if they are still finding their roles, and although the theme music is a bit off and I had to fast-forward through the whole Gel Sequence, I enjoyed it a lot. I’m looking forward to seeing more of that show.
