Just had coffee with a friend. She gave me the best frigging b’day present ever (it could only be topped if she had brought me the man himself) He touched this! He signed my name! Holy ****! *dies*

The only downside is that he was in the country and I knew nothing about it! My stalking skills are clearly failing me. She also got a hug from him and a photo, though she doesn’t really have any clue who he is!

BJJ!

Published 09/11/2012 by Lily Crussell

Crazy week. Seriously mental. I restarted ballet again on Monday after an 11 year break. I clearly forgot how bad I was before I gave it up as I was appalling in class. I remembered NOTHING! I knew what the exercises were, but my body clearly didn’t want to do what my mind was telling it to. Worst part? The 75+yr old woman in the class who was kicking my butt. She was scary, and she’d only started as an adult! Oh the shame.

Then, as if I don’t have enough to keep me busy, I decided to take up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Holy crap that was…an experience. Have you heard the saying ‘No sex please, we’re British’? Well this went against that in so many ways. I was the only girl in a class of pumped men. I’m 5ft 5 and 8 stone. They were all muscular and had been coming for years. I nearly died from the warm up (which involved grown men skipping in a circle heh heh). In my pole class, we do ten press ups and about 40-50 slowish crunches. In the WARM UP for BJJ I did 150 fast crunches and about 50 press ups. I could see all the boys were watching to see how I coped, and I was damned if I was going to be ‘the girl’ by failing. I was already knackered from running in circles and all that jazz, bu to then do the evil pressups etc? Wow.

The fun really began after that. A guy came over and introduced himself before essentially spending a large chunk of the class with his crotch in my face or pinning me to the ground, or wrapping his legs around me. I’m pretty closed off with physical contact. I don’t hug my family or friends, so to have a complete stranger be that close was…surprisingly ok. I kept waiting for my mind to catch up, freak out and have me run from the room, but it didn’t happen. Girls of the world, you NEED to learn BJJ. It will teach you how to get out of being held down, or pinned if you’re ever attacked, and none of it depends on size or weight. I know I already feel a little more confident about my personal safety and you can’t put a price on that!

I did encounter several problems when the guy chucking me around asked; ‘So what would you do now?’ Apparently saying ‘Go for the nuts’ is not acceptable or appropriate, but I was being serious. That’s what a girl is taught to do! That or pop the eye out, break the nose or go for the instep. None of these things were allowed. Trust me, if I’m ever in a dangerous situation, I won’t be worrying about BJJ ettiquette. Sean Patrick Flannery has a lot to answer to @seanflanery. The boy has been talking about BJJ so much, I had to see what the fuss was about!

In other news; just watched the newest ep of The Walking Dead. In the UK we get it the Fridy after the Sunday that America gets it on. That means the whole episode was completely ruined for me via FB and Twitter. Thanks guys! But did that stop me crying like a baby and snotting everywhere? Did it hell. Chandler Riggs and Laruen Cohan were amasing. I thought I was ok, the Andrew Lincoln decides I haven’t cried enough. No movie or TV show has ever made me cry before in my life. If I get this upset over characters I don’t care about, I pray they don’t kill Daryl off as I might have to be sedated!

In NaNo news, I haven’t written a single word in two days. I got a bit caught up in making bookmarks for the book’s launch on 22.12.12 and once I start doing that, I keep going until I run out of ink/paper/laminating sheets. I already have a billion to give away, but I’ve changed the design slightly to include different info so decided to make some more. I don’t remember what it’s like having a bedroom that actually looks like a bedroom. I have paper, bookmarks, swag and all sorts EVERYWHERE! It’s crazy!

Anyhoo, I should either go sleep (it’s 11.34pm) or eat something (bad idea) or write for NaNo (unlikely lol)

Love and Hugs,

Also, I have had the same song on repeat for about two weeks now. I am so in love with it! Look up; ‘The Psychadelic Furs – Love My Way.’ x

Block and stupid wrists

I was doing voluntary work at the primary school where my mum works and they had me covering and labelling books. I have no problem with boring repetitive jobs (all the more time to daydream about Norman Reedus) but it has caused me awful pains in my wrists. This means I can’t do any of the things I love I.E Pole (I’ve missed about three weeks now) or large amounts of typing. Not a happy bunny. This isn’t helped by the fact that the weather is rubbish! Grey skies from now until April I think urgh! On the plus side, I did see an awesome motivator that pointed out that girls don’t have to shave their legs until April lol. Unfortunately due to pole classes, I do shave. I shave more for my pole girls than I ever have for a guy. TMI, but c’est la vie. Can you tell I’m bored as I can’t write?

I’ve been reading a lot and finished ‘One Day’ by David Nicholls ridiculously quickly. It’s a sweet enough book and I’ll admit I did see a lot of myself in Emma Morley. Go read it, it’s good. I wasn’t happy with the ending, but there we go.

Other than not, nothing much to tell. The pubslush appeal has been ditched as it just wasn’t happening. I’m thinking of using Createspace to get ‘Of Darkness and Light’ into print, but I’m struggling with finding a cover designer. Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of talented peeps out there, but they’re not doing what I want. I’m picky, what can I say. I just figure if I’m going to do it, I should do it properly with something I am 100% happy with. If you know anyone awesome who can work within the constraints of createspace (I really have no clue how it works) get in contact. Bare in mind I’m poor so nothing ridiculously expensive, unless they will take a kidney as payment. I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs, so my kidney must be in pretty good condition. One careful owner….lol.

THE WALKING DEAD SEASON THREE IS COMING SOON! OMG OMG OMG! I have a sad, sad life lol

Love and Hugs
