If only we could be living in those simple minded times now where our nation's greatest worry was being mind melded to a dice game.

Eh, in case of most of those ladies I like their left hand picture. Only two cases involve significant improvement and another two actually I like more on their left picture than on the right one. The rest looks good on both, though in different ways.

Disclaimer: I might have different opinion live, with different lightning, different photos, etc.

So: next two TKD classes complete!

I somehow managed to pass yellow, green, red, brown (faked it*), and blue tapes.

I'm still sick, but in far better health than last week, and being careful to tend my reserves of health energy rather than kill myself; the better to facilitate my recovery rather than get worse. It helps to have an understanding master.

Either way, it's great to be learning again! Hopefully I'll kick this thing soon and be able to do full genuine exercise routines again. In the meantime, I'll settle for scaring small children and/or being the guy they want to be as strong as some day (at least of their whispers are any indication - I'm pretty suernatural should set their sight higher, though - that's one of the reasons I keep trying to encourage the other parents to join...). :)

* More like my master took pity on the sick guy who'd missed the last ten minutes of class in which the rest of the class was taught said tape; and he saw my nearly physical struggle with dyslexia in action. That said, he trusted me to work it out on my own, and I'm doing exactly that, so...

Gratz Tacticslion. I do hope that you feel better soon. Having said that, I would be too much of a whimp to do that while sick.

So, TL...
...you took the yellow, green, red, brown, and blue tests all within a week or two?

Even at my uber-competitive school, we just let people come in and say (for example), "I was a green belt at my old place," and we'd say, "OK, here's our green belt test. Let us know when you're ready to take it."

They'd take ONE test to place them properly and be done with it.

Taking five tests in under 2 weeks is just brutal... especially when sick!

More news from the world of NobodysHome:

  • Blue Apron arrived right on schedule today. The kids are really excited to be cooking for us. I'll write up a review of the experience tonight.
  • Impus Minor has chosen to postpone the Mummy's Mask game AGAIN. *SIGH*. I think NobodysWife is right; I don't think we'll ever be playing those characters again. Ah, well, it was a good start for the few weeks it lasted.
  • On the other hand, Del is doing spectacularly well in Skull & Shackles, though what does it say about a party when their 6th-level Life Oracle spends ALL her channels, ALL her rounds of Energy Body, and ALL her spells on healing... TWICE in a single cave?
    It means they have to get themselves some AC, THAT'S what it means!!!
    (OK. Slightly unfair. They managed to get themselves ridiculously poisoned, failed a multitude of Fortitude saves, and the whole, "You need to make a Caster Level check for Remove Poison to work" is just The Suck. So lots of uses of Lesser Restoration, three Remove Poisons, and a couple of Shield of Faiths to get their ACs up. But otherwise healing, healing healing...)

    I have a blue belt, got it at Target.

    Only test I had to take was having the patience to not use the cashier that looks like a serial killer.

    Tried watching actual television last night, not a fan.

    How did people do it before internet.

    So long ago...

    I think I have miscommunication something significant.

    Tape, not belt. I am still a white belt.

    The tape tests are small tests that demonstrate very minor competencies within a give belt's broader competency range.

    The tapes have so far included:
    - yellow: basic punch, double, triple, and several other hand moves and combination blocks
    - green: for the youngest kids some blocks and punches; for the older kids (and me) a basic H form of punches with low block turns
    - red: two different combination sets of kicks
    - brown: severel korean terms and a greeting in Korean (hence struggling with dyslexia)
    - blue: breaking boards with hands and feet

    I was once a green belt. That was twenty years (at least) and three martial arts styles ago. I am not a green belt any more. If he had offered me that, I would have requested a white belt to work my way up again.

    I am not ready to take any test related to any belt of any color - even yellow.

    Thanks for thinking that well of me, but no.

    And a tape is exactly what it sounds like: a piece of tape attached to your belt of a particular color.

    For the curious, even if my son passes all his tapes he's young enough that he'll likely get a white belt with a yellow stripe instead of a "true" yellow belt. I'd likely move on to a yellow belt. But this is not that day. :)

    So Black Butler is an anime series on Netflix. I have seen the first episode. Huh.

    So, here we go: Blue Apron review time!

  • Delivery: A-. The box arrived at 3:00 pm on the day I wanted to cook, the ice packs were frozen solid, the meat was properly separated from the veggies, and the menus were dry and separated from everything else. It gets an A- because both the ground beef and shrimp were frozen. I understand that's for food safety, but if you advertise that your food arrives "ready to cook", a frozen block of ground beef is not an easy target. On the other hand, an hour in warm water and we were ready to go.
  • Quality of Ingredients: A. Locally-grown, organic, hormone-and-antibiotic free. All of it was fresh, blemish-free, and the aforementioned apple was so good I had to keep chasing Impus Minor off. (He declared that he was going to keep a bowl of matchstick apples in his house forever, because he loved them so much.)
  • Instructions: A+. I mean, wow! It was exactly as advertised. The recipe has a URL on it. You put in the URL. It has little 1-minute videos of all the prep. I asked Impus Minor to show me how to "core and matchstick an apple". Instant gratification! It would be hard to mess up these menus.
  • Ease of Cooking: C+. While preparing the meal itself wasn't hard, the slicing and dicing was too much for the kids to handle. It's not "easy to prepare" food. Matchstick apples, cabbage sliced into slaw, minced shallots and garlic, small diced green pepper... I did a lot more work for the kids than I'd been hoping to do. But it was a LOT of great "daddy bonding time" as we found things that the kids could do while I was doing all the sous cheffing for them.
  • Time: A-. It was about 75 minutes start-to-finish. Again, not quite as "fast and easy" as advertised.
  • Flavor: B. A good question for me is, "Would I serve this dinner to guests?" The answer was a resounding, "Not unless I was really desperate."
    I found it perfectly palatable; the kind of stuff you wouldn't mind paying $8 for at a restaurant. Considering that's what I paid, it's a decent bargain. Other than the "having to cook it myself" part. NobodysWife thought it was very good, and Impus Minor declared it "awesome" and figures that cooking food yourself makes it taste better. Considering one of my two goals in this experiment was to get Impus Minor to expand his food repertoire, mission accomplished! (He also asked whether we could do Blue Apron every single day, so the goal to get the kids cooking was also a resounding success!)
    Impus Major was more like me: "It's perfectly OK."
  • All in all, all four of us gave Blue Apron a HUGE thumbs-up. I appreciated achieving both my goals: Kids cooking and Impus Minor eating something different. Impus Minor loved the food. NobodysWife liked the food quite a bit more than I did, and loved seeing how happy and excited the kids were to present her with a meal that they helped cook. Impus Major had all kinds of fun cooking the sauce (Impus Minor's a bit inexperienced to be left alone at the stovetop... yet...)

    Anyway, good family kitchen evening! We win!

    Awesomely enough, I can time when the equinoxes are by when our dog switches from sleeping on the floor by the window (spring) and sleeping on our feet on the bed (fall).

    Like to the day, absolutely fascinating!

    I have a green, brown and white belt on, which qualifies me to have trousers that are not in a puddle around my ankles.

    I'm sure that counts as a martial art in some cultures.
