Is it me, or is gazpacho just another name for watery salsa?

I was walking to my bus stop today when a kid (I’m guessing he was about thirteen) called me a bitch and attacked me. I wasn’t too alarmed, as he was about my size (I think) and very, very obviously didn’t know how to fight. After a few seconds of cat-clawing me (to no effect) and an attempt to knee my torso that fell about a foot short of reaching me at all, he backed off a bit. After a second of hesitation, I threw a turning kick that sort of grazed him, more so he wouldn’t think he’d gotten away with it than for any other reason. And then we both turned and walked our separate ways.

Weird.

Give in to Deliciousness!!!

And then, of course, we had the usual shenanigans of Korean barbecue and soju shots, followed by after-dinner boozing at a nearby bar, followed by the obligatory dinerquest for cheeseburgers at 3am. (We used to do the diner thing at even more ungodly hours, but certain people – not me! – had to teach martial arts to CHILDREN in the morning.)

Myself, I woke up around 10:30 and went for a jog before joining mavrikx4 and two of his friends on a mad-dash quest for dim sum that took us from the thoroughfares of Manhattan to the lawns of Baldwin (Long Island?!) to the buzzing streets of Flushing’s Chinatown…just 25 minutes before the dreaded dim sum cutoff! If you were to make a movie of this adventure, it would be titled something like Mavrikx & Idat Run for Dim Sum!, and it would be one wacky buddy flick. The trailer would feature me screaming and clutching the door of Mavrikx’s car while HE DROVE LIKE A FREAKING MANIAC through the bucolic verdancy of suburbia. Comedy gold.

That said, it was extremely fun, and the 3:40pm dim sum brunch was delicious if sadly brief. And afterward I got a sweet bean paste bun and some bubble tea and generally enjoyed pretending to be Asian.

The Thrill of VICTORY!

My ex-roomie had a FREAKIN’ AWESOME TKD test, and now she is a black belt. WOOHOO!!! She did solid patterns (sadly, I didn’t get to see them all as I had to leave briefly to don my fighting gear) and made all her breaks on the first try. As for her fight, well, she was fighting me, so it MUST have gone well.

And to think she was nervous. 😛

Congratulations, Rho!

If I ever compile an all-inclusive anthology of anything, I shall title it using the Olde spelling of “complete,” that is to say, “compleat,” just to MESS WITH PEOPLE’S HEADS.
