Kidney Stones, Babies & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Busy Busy Busy.

Application for Grad School continues. A lot more hoops to jump through than I expected.

Also there have been some new distractions:

Distraction One: A brief hospital visit for some extreme pain in my back which turned out to be a kidney stone. Oddly enough, as soon as I found out it was kidney stone, the pain bothered me a lot less. By normal pain standards what I was experiencing was excruciating, but I've had kidney stones before and by kidney stone standards...I'll take the pain I was feeling with a smile because it could have been a lot worse.

Distraction Two: I have a nephew now. He is adorable, and having him in my life has made me do a lot of reprioritizing.

Distraction Three: I have started training in Jiu Jitsu. There is a tournament in a couple weeks and I'm considering entering.

Why not? I've been training for a whole month.

And of course I have my years of pro wrestling watching to fall back on which has given me a significant advantage even when my training partners are clearly wrestling wrong what with them grabbing the wrong arm and refusing to slow down and work the crowd and forgetting to call the next spot.

Still, I plan to sneak into the tournament grounds and slide a folding steel chair under the mats. You never know when you might need a little insurance.

On the other hand, there is this....

I've been choked out by a six week old infant. That is not what we would consider a good start. In fairness, as anyone anyone who has tried to get past his legs to change his diaper will attest, he's got a heck of a guard.
