bundled up, walkabout, snow

Almost done for the year...

... and we actually scored 3 out of four points this morning. I say "we," but all the credit goes to Knight. The best I can say is that I improved with each game.

D. gave me the money for doorprizes for the banquet, so I can use it to shop while I'm in Branson on spring break. It's becoming a tradition for me to buy the banquet doorprizes while I'm on spring break.

Fencing is being silly, with style

It is amazing to me how much a sword changes the look of everything.

We've been learning and practicing footwork, then putting it together with the foil. (I verified tonight - the epée is the one with the larger bell guard.) Tonight we learned to jump. When the teacher was demonstrating, he looked like some sort of human frog. But, put a sword in his hand, and it looked right.

We also learned to hit our opponents sword, which wasn't batting or bashing, but I'm pretty sure it started with "b." Wasn't block, either. Sigh.

I wasn't quite as tired tonight, and we were on our feet longer, considering that we didn't break for a fire alarm in the middle of class this time.

The shelf camisole was the right choice for support garment, since I could wear it alone under the fencing jacket, and I wasn't nearly as hot. I didn't have time to blow my hair dry after my shower today, but I suspect my bangs would have ended up the same amount of curly even if I had, so I won't bother on Tuesdays. ;)

It's a good workout. I'm enjoying.
