Splittig Gi's | I seem to be making a habit of this you know. Splitting gi's (or dogis if you prefer) that is. The latest ripped white training pants to add itself to my notorious list of shredded pants, joined the ranks at Monday night's training session, where Gerhard ... (Martial Arts | My Life)

Happiness is... an Unexpected Gift Card | Nice. There is nothing better than an unexpected gift. Like emptying your desk drawers in order to pack the contents into boxes for the move over to your new house and noticing a sturdy little mini blue envelope staring back up at you from the ... (My Life)
A Ripped Decision | I only have two shorts which I wear on a daily basis. Scratch that, of this weekend I have no shorts that I wear on a daily basis - a tragic loss that drove me straight to the mall and straight into overheated malice in ... (General Nonsense | My Life)
