Random Ramblings by Lisa

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Have you ever been to the zoo? You know that smell of large animal poop that seems to hit you periodically as you walk around? I never know exactly which animal it comes from, so I always associate the smell with the elephants. While at the grocery store today there was a huge man and an older lady, who I assume was his mom, shopping together. Each and every time we got anywhere near them, I was practically overpowered by that exact same smell. As in, yes, they smelled like elephant poop.
Please, dear friends, if my personal hygiene ever begins to lag so much that I start to smell like elephant poop, love me enough to tell me. Write me a note, buy me some Dial, tell me straight to my face, I don't care...just don't let me walk around like that!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket We did a mock tournament at karate last night, which was fun. I participated, even though I don't have any plans to compete in tournaments anytime soon, and had a really good time. But BOY was I nervous! We had to do a Kata in front of the three instructors and everyone else (there are probably...30 students at least, most of whom I attend church with!) but I figure, hey, if I can't do it in front of my friends, then I'll never be able to go and actually compete! They scored me with a 7, a 7.5, and an 8 (out of 10) which I thought was pretty good, considering I've never done it before.
Oh, and I got to spar, too! Yeah, I hit people! Can you IMAGINE?! I know, the mind boggles!

Yes, chili is a New Year's food here. But it's also a year round food!

I though you did really well with your kata. You're much braver than I am. I didn't even suit up. You did your moves in the most elegant, feminine, but powerful fashion! I was very impressed that you could look like a woman and still look like you could kick butt!

Oh, and how do you use those cool little pictures and animations?
