I am still alive.

I haven't blogged in a while, but that is because nothing all that exciting is happening.

No serious injuries... no life altering BJJ epiphanies.  Just grappling. And that is okay with me.  I will gladly grapple for the sake of grappling any day.

I will also blog for the sake of blogging, so here are some mostly non-bjj related highlights of my recent weeks.

  • I am officially in the masters division!  Woohoo!  My birthday was great ... I spent most of the past week eating... and drinking... much more than normal, but it was all in the name of fun with some of the most wonderful people I know... so I have no regrets.  =)  

  • The internet told me I look like Laurence Fishburne and Danny Glover.

These are some lovely gentlemen sure... but let's face it... No woman is going to be happy to hear, "Hey!  You look like this MAN!"  Especially when  one of said men is Laurence Fishburne, smelling what I can only assume is hot garbage water.  

It wouldn't have bothered me so much if it the internet would have just been, "You look like Morpheus!"  

But no.

I look like Laurence Fishburne smelling garbage water.  


And I thought we were friends, internet... I thought we were friends.  

  • My tattoo has healed nicely, and I been able to grapple for the past week and a half... but on the 17th I go back to have it recolored. Not that anything was wrong with it the first time around, Sean said he just wants it to recolor it once it healed.  So, I'll probably take another two weeks off after that.  Honestly the idea of taking another two weeks off bums me out, but for the sake of the tattoo on my shoulder that will be there for the entire duration of my life... I think I'll manage.

    And I think that pretty much covers it.

    Oh, and don't see Wrath of the Titans.  It is awful.  Just awful.  There was a moment at the end, where I thought for a second that Perseus was going to armbar Ares.. but alas, he did not... so every second of the movie was a epic snooze fest.  I'm getting bored just thinking about it. 


  1. Ha -well, at least they are two pretty cool guys (as far as I know?). It would be worse if the internet said you looked like somebody who was a prick. ;)

    I think last time I did that face recognition thing, I got a few women popping up with a fairly high match. Let's see...I just did one on, and got Christy Turlington (59%), Cher (54%) and Alyson Hannigan (54%). None of whom look a whole lot like each other. But then that's only sub-60%. gives me a 58% match with Megan Fox. Apparently there is a 60% match with Tom Cruise and 61% with Brad Pitt. Hmm.

    Trying a rather less flattering picture (me after training), gives me a 75% match with...ex-French President Francois Mitterand. Bah. BUT the other one gives me another match with Christy Turlington! Only 35%, but hey, I think that confirms it. I am a reincarnation of Christy Turlington (except she isn't dead). ;p

  2. hahahah!! Too funny! I used post grapple pictures for mine.. as you can see. You had to be facing completely forward for this particular generator and if I am trying not to look terrible for a picture I almost never look directly at the camera..where as apparently after I've been grappling I give up on not looking terrible and just accept it. haha

    I can't really say I agree with the Christy Turlington thing, except maybe in the eyes.

  3. Well, the internet is telling me I'm a top female supermodel, and the internet is always right, surely? ;p

    1. Clearly. lol

      I just wish it told ME I looked like a supermodel. hahaha
