20 years on

Posted 04-12-2013 at 08:06 AM by m_miles

It's been twenty years since I first joined my first martial art classes and typically, I started doing two at the same time.

Two decades and four styles later, I find myself still cataloging my bruises (eight of them) and gauging the familiar grinding sounds from my knees, but you know, I'm still grinning. Conflict is still cathartic for me, especially in my profession, which tends to focus on the vulnerability of the human body.

It's good to see a few familiar names, and also sad to hear about Ivor. Nothing inspires me to...

A rant on a cashier guy

Posted 03-15-2013 at 06:27 PM by goldenmyst

Well I got a clue as to why the cashier guy at the convenience store across the street isn't very friendly to me but is to other customers. I was standing in line behind a well dressed young couple. The cashier guy was ranting on about how the store was like a mental institution with so many mentally ill around.

Apparently the couple didn't get it at first so the guy exclaimed, "Just look around you!" And there I was the only other person in the store wearing my over size...
