I attend fight choreography training twice weekly, as a fun and creative complement to my more serious martial arts studies. Our school is currently preparing a routine - we’ve blocked out our positions, and now we’re in the process of adding combat choreography and transition moves.
During about the 3rd transition, I decided that it’d be a good idea to move from one mark to another via forward roll. What i didn’t realise, around about the time my head was passing under my butt, was that my sensei was aiming a spinning kick at my former opponent - and his foot passed a whisker over my nose.
The whole room froze, stared at me and then back at sensei, who broke out into a massive grin and declared that my blunder looked ‘REALLY AWESOME’ and that it would be added to the routine. So now i have to avoid getting kicked in the head for a month and a half.
Kelly, if i die, Brett can have my Transformers.
I made myself some sushi to take to work tomorrow for lunch, only to discover that I accidentally used my glutinous mochi rice instead of my regular shortgrained sushi rice, so now I have delicious fishy seaweedy mochi rolls for lunch.
So, my dojo is putting on an opening show for a local anthro convention, and to fit in with the sci-fi theme we’re doing a Tron vs Matrix fight choreography. I was cast in the Tron half, so I’m going to be a Tron goldfish.
THREE CHICKS LOOKING FOR A GOOD HOME!
The very first clutch of griffin chicks has hatched! You can bring one of these sweethearts home for $350 USD plus $15 shipping (within the US). Please contact me here (my ask box is always open) or by email at email@example.com if interested or have any questions. First-come-first-served, please specify which critter you would like to make your new little pal!
- Green Chick - (clutch 1, #1)
This parrot-like chick is the runt of the litter, but his siblings are happy to look out for him. He’s full of curiosity and has a habit of getting into things he shouldn’t.
- Pink Chick - (clutch 1, #2)
The iridescent sister is proud of her plumage, and knows very well she can get away with most anything with one look from her big silver eyes. She has a penchant for shiny things and might have a bit of dragon in her, so if anything goes missing, simply check her nest.
- Blue Chick - (clutch 1, #3)
This Jay-like chick is the laziest of the bunch, enjoying lounging about and getting tummy rubs. His favorite food is grapes, so beware when you have them around him!
Each original art doll is hand made and one of a kind! These art pieces are meant for display and enjoyment by adult collectors and not intended for children.
Heads and feet are hand cast in urethane plastic then hand painted. Bodies are made of high quality feaux-fur, hand stitched and colored. Contains a wire armature in the neck, arms and wings for poseability. Wings are made of painted felt. Hind legs are weighted with beans so griffins may stand up on all fours if desired!
Chicks measure 14-15 inches in length from beak to tail tip, about 6-7 inches tall from talon to ear tip.
Please contact me if you have any questions!
The indescribably talented tina of biliousworks has made these gorgeous critters. buy them!
Some absolute pondscum nicked my Licence plate off my car overnight, so there’ll be no driving for me until I pick up a new one - which, coincidentally, I can only access via a car trip. Nuts.
If any of my local darlings need me, I’m here for you, but you may have to come fetch me first.
I am so lucky that even on my worst days, Attila the Bun still thinks I’m the best thing since half-chewed toilet rolls. Got home today after a thoroughly miserable time and he climbed right into my lap for a hug. He may destroy my favourite hoodie, molest my housemate’s cats, eat laptop cables and poo on my friends but I wouldn’t swap him for anything.
Except possibly a slightly more socially acceptable version of himself.
