    The Hobbit...

    I went to go see it Thursday night's midnight showing in IMAX 3D. I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought the 3D was amazing and I had no trouble with it, but I've never had motion sickness from 3D before. I loved parts that they've kept true to the books, the things that they added to show "the...

    Where did I miss the boat?

    I have never heard that shortened version either. However, now that I heard it here, I'll probably start noticing it.

    I used to exercise a LOT and felt great and it helped me in my training. Then I got a job where I'm sitting on my butt a lot, metabolism started slowing down, gained some weight, felt too tired to work out so I didn't. It was depressing when some things that didn't used to be hard in class...

    Which Belt Gave You the Biggest Sense of Achievement (Except for Black Belt+)

    In my club (and many other Aikido schools), we just have the white belt we start off with and keep it wearing it until we get our black. Not talking about testing (as I didn't get a new belt color), but my favorite was the white belt that came with buying my first gi. I had wanted to do martial...

    One good thing, one bad thing ABOUT YOU (Lurkers welcome)

    Good--I'm encouraging to others and have a lot of goals I want to accomplish. Bad--I can be lazy and sometimes put off or give up if something gets to hard.

    Aikido Books Recommendations Thread

    I really liked Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere. I'm partway through reading "Center: The Power of Aikido" by Hiroshi Ikeda, Ron Meyer, Mark Reeder and so far it's been quite good. :)

    Falling is the new Coning or Planking or new Stupidity.

    Really stupid...I don't understand "planking" either. Perhaps some of these guys will realize that they enjoy the bumps and bruises and become a stunt double.

    Tip Jars...

    I used to work at a frozen yogurt shop when I was in college. That job gave me a new look and great appreciation for tips! It's rough to remain smiling and pleasant when you have difficult customers who act as if you're beneath them or stupid just because you're behind a counter. I know from...

    Do you ever just sit in at a class and watch?

    I've sat and watched my class a few times and it's always been very eye-opening. It's amazing what you can see from the sidelines that you can't see when you're on the mat. :)

    your memories

    I used to write all the important things down in a journal. I mainly did it for myself, so I could look back.. I started off writing why I started Aikido, first impression about the dojo, the people, etc. and main events. I included some of the worst moments and my own failings as well as the...

    Who has tried P90X?

    I have it and I really like it a lot. I don't use the nutrition guide (Weight Watchers instead) and I like weights better than the resistance band. It really is a good workout and I like how they show modified versions of many of the moves in case you have knee problems or can't do the more...

    flood waters held back by good planning

    After Hurricane Katrina, a LOT of houses in New Orleans were rebuilt raised and some on stilts. I think some insurances required the people who live in the areas where it flooded the most to rebuild their house raised up. Other people who have 2 story houses have divided up their house so they...

    flood waters held back by good planning

    I went to an Aikido seminar yesterday and one of the guest instructors was from Vicksburg. I didn't realize that it flooded that bad there otherwise I would have asked him about it. Thanks for the photos.
