Do mice have bones?

Let me just get this out of the way first: BAHhahaha. Ahem.

Victoria loves her martial arts class and I am glad she likes something I know nothing about (it's good for kids to have their own thing, probably). It's impossible to dislike the teacher, too. He is adorable. He has ten cats. When Victoria asked him how he could take care of ten cats he told her, "with love". Come ON!

But you know there is a problem. I wouldn't waste a ChaCha query on a something made entirely of sweetness and light. Every martial arts class has a type, a classification, a flavor, a system, I don't know what the term is but the one she's in is Kung Fu. Yup. For months I got away with calling it martial arts (when she first started, she called it Marsha Larts) but a few weeks ago Brian was home and I was busy with something so he took her to the class and the cat was out of the bag. You know he's been singing Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting ever since. And of course V now thinks it's a very cool song. Trust me, you do not want EwKFF stuck in your head.

"Do mice have bones?"

You didn't think that brittle *SNAP* was the trap did you?

No, no one likes "EwKFF" stuck in their head...so I will give everyone reading this "It's a Small World" instead ;-) Argh! It's possibly better than "Svivivon", which is the Hebrew word for Dreidle...imagine the song "Dreidle, dreidle, dreidle", if you've heard it, but a different tune and different words. Wait. Um. Never mind, I can't do music in words.

And now, thank you, it is.

My kids are saying they hate kung fu. Sifu's been a little bit tougher on them lately. They have one more class tonight, and we'll see how it goes. we were thinking of just having Maylie in beginner on Wed (so she can go to the clay class beforehand) and then do the kids kung fu on thurs (tues we have family dinner nite), but on Mon she was in such a pissy mood and went "I HATE KUNG FU!!!" so I don't know. they did seem to enjoy it when sifu would let them goof off and not pay attention (hoping that they would start to)

I can't say I hate it, but the appeal escapes me. I'm glad V likes it, though, because I think I will pay for a gym pass next month and try to get some exercise while she's in class. I feel like a slug.

I haven't seen a winter session schedule yet. I know the signup is the first Saturday in January but aside from that I am clueless.

yeah they don'thave the schedule out yet but from what I'm told, it doesn't differ much from the fall schedule. the first sat in jan is Maylie's bd, her party's in the afternoon, so i'll prob go in the morning to sign up but we have to figure out once and for all what to sign the kids up for. If it was up to the kids they would sit on their butts at home all the time and I just can't do that, they need some exercise.

I can sign them up for you if you tell me what you want. They allow one proxy (or they have in the past).

D and I both do Tae Kwon Do. I've also done Tai Chi and Shaolin Kempo karate. I love it, really. The discipline of the motions, like a dance, and finding the inner part of you that can kick something really freakin' hard, so hard you can knock it flying... as a short pudgy woman I find it very powerful. And D loves it, too, and I'm glad he has it, because as a fairly soft-spoken, gentle blond kid, at some point he'll have to stick up for himself, except he'll be a black belt by the time he's 10 or 11 so who's going to mess with him, really?

My condolences on "EwKKF..." it's not a big earworm for me but THANKS SO MUCH to slightlymadmom for It's a Small World. Mwah. Loves you!

The proper answer is: "Of course, that's why they crunch when you eat them."

And of course you MUST watch "The Last Dragon." The campiest, silliest kung fu film ever.
