Go through a full Maai Hyoshi combat ninjutsu class tonight, first time in aaaages I’ve finished so strongly…

I put my improved endurance and athletic performance down to an ancient martial arts tool, more effective than meditation , more effective than visualisation, more effective than pure white hot determination to continue despite the odds…

Meeting with Lawyers for The Firm’s work on the Unitary Plan campaign.

Like all really really expensive offices every meeting is catered, this works okay when I’m on a lifting day, but catch me on a rest day when my body is desperately scavenging as much protein as it can find to rebuild… I’m like Wylie Coyote, daydreaming about anything my body can catabolise.

Start of the meeting: admin assistant brings in tray of sushi and herbal teas.

The Lawyers (apparently all environemtal lawyers are women) obligingly take one and begin talking about board meetings and district plans and Habeas Corpus (I assume)….

…lawyers debate law….

…Mike leans over the table and takes a sushi ..brain switches back on…

…lawyers debate law…

…Mike explains the science behind Nitrogen Dioxide discharge limits… then leans over the table and takes a sushi…brain switches back on…

..lawyers debate law…

…Mike explains why air shed limits can only apply to non miscible particulates….then leans over the table and takes a sushi …

sashimi

We get halfway through the meeting and I’m giving the tray of tuna rolls f*** me eyes again.

BigLawFirm’s head of litigation catches me eye humping the sashimi platter and presses (I sweartagod) a button on her phone and 30 seconds later her admin assistant brings in a Mike-size plate of sashimi so I’ll stop interrupting the g*ddamn meeting in my quest for short chain amino acids…

You have to be a little impressed at a litigator that can tell intuitively when her client is on a bulking cycle and needs feeding so he’ll focus long enough to, y’know, actually make sense during  the meeting.

One thing I’ve noticed about bisexual women is they often haven’t had the chance to develop the craydar that a man their age would.

I just spent the evening consoling a friend who got her heart broke by a straight girl who, it turned out liked her attention but wasn’t being all that sincere about wanting a connection or a relationship.

And it was interesting because to me,  the *moment* I met her misamour a hundred different details stood up and shouted “Here Be Dragons”  but my friend just didn’t see it, and therefore got blindsided.

caution

Fortunately her friends and I were able to administer 300-ccs of merlot and 100 grams of chocolate and send the patient safely home to bed…

 

Standard

 

Two weeks ago I started back with the Bujinkan school, turns out my Judo and Jujistu are still strong but my striking and evasion sucks monster balls. As evidence of this Thursday night Sensei Dillon accidentally kicked me in the pelvis so hard I peed a little. So, there’s that.
