day 1801 – carnival time

work was pretty much a write off since many of us chipped in to help setup the annual summer party. this year’s theme is carnival and thankfully there were no clowns present. the games can get intense with a bunch of adults reliving their long lost childhood in a games of human foosball, bungee run and of course tug-of-war. i’m pretty dangerous at human foosball; there were several instances of close calls where i almost kicked someone in the head. fun bbq in scorching hot weather just like last year, i’m sure i went home a shade darker

day 1691 – she-unit

showing up in plain white beaters and snapbacks for another year of kings and queens tournament. the tournament competition level was very high as always and although we didn’t make it far into the elimination rounds, it’s always good to be with the gang. good thing my chiropractor was on site to do some heavy taping on my shoulder so i could hold it down enough to play. i must say it was weird playing in white beaters and i don’t think i’ll consider that again

day 1689 – bowlers alley

it was a shame i missed the last company bowling event, but i got in on the fun this time. competition started getting serious and there was no shortage of trash talking. i only put up a hundred and eleven points on the board; sad to say i used to be a better bowler reaching the one fifties. in the end it’s all relative to the other teams and i think my team did well overall. hopefully once the scores are tallied, my team would come out as winners. by the end of two hours, my ring finger was aching quite badly

day 602 – subliminated debut

it was a slow start to dodgeball after a two week layoff, but got better as the night went on. as competitive minded as we are, dodgeball isn’t all about wins and loses. we were having some fun, getting up close and personal with the camera on our new jersey debut. we are finally able to take our team photo with the whole team present and debuting our spiffy new jerseys which i am truly proud of. feeling good with the jerseys and well on our way to winning best dressed

day 460 – bottle drive

my team is going to have a busy season ahead of ourselves because we have bigger plans and more stars to reach. as my team is loading up on competitions and looking for advancement, our focus will be on more than just training. but none of this will happen if we don’t acquire the necessary funding and sponsors. collecting recyclables to fundraise for my team’s upcoming competition equipment and travel expenses

day 422 – draft day

it’s finally friday which means it’s the usual friday night taekwondo training. here’s today’s after class special, taiwanese kimchi fried rice paired with basketball fantasy draft. picked up pretty much all the players i had in mind and can’t wait to see how my team matches up through the league. wouldn’t say i drafted based on building a winning team, but drafted based on players i liked, hopefully that still gives me a good chance
