As I again didn't go to bed on time Friday night (I really need to get better at this) I only got up a bit after 11, did some shopping but was too apathetic to anything constructive so just relaxed until it was time to go into town. I needed to pick up a Borders voucher as bday present for someone at work and then made my way to the Grafton Centre for Tai Chi Awareness Day.
Unfortunately, I don't have many photos as I was either taking part in the demonstration myself or busy talking to people but there are a few:


Bigger and a few more )
Considering what the same event usually looks like in Toronto (where the headquarters of the TTCS is), it was pathetic but it was literally just a few members (mostly instructors and a few long-timers) from the Cambridgeshire branch and, most importantly, we had a spot with a lot of public traffic and there were many people who were interested in what we were doing (except for a bunch of disruptive chav kids, good thing we're peaceful...) and some even made a genuine offer to join in. All in all I think it was a success, if we get 10% of the people who picked up a flier actually make it to a class, we'll be happy. ;o)

Back home, I cooked dinner (lamb chops, creamy cabbage and leeks and new potatoes) and then went off to the Holloway flat for a few hours of relaxed chatting and hanging out.
For those of you not yet aware of [ profile] jholloway's Gonzo History Project, it's an irregular blog picking a random person or event from history and giving it the Gonzo treatment. It's a damn fine read and a good laugh to boot (if my history teachers had been like that, I might have been a little more interested) and I urge you all to have a look.
As it's on blogspot and most of you are on LJ, I created a feed for it: [ profile] gonzohistory. Add it to your friends page now!

I also finished processing the Airsoft Photos! There will be a photobox account sometime later this week, too so you can order prints if you like.

Another great session last night where several things clicked again. Now I just need to practise it all...

Mentioning Tai Chi, for those who are interested:

This Saturday (9/9, all day)
Grafton Centre (the "courtyard" in the back where Virgin and Heffers are)
Tai Chi Awareness Day

The Cambs branch of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Great Britain will be demonstrating their form of Tai Chi. There will be a little stall with information leaflets, class lists (several new beginners' classes starting later this month.
Come along, and if you dare, join in!

I shall be there from around 3 or 4 til 5:30. Watch me make a prick of myself.

I'll have details of the new beginners classes soon.
[ profile] raggedy_man and [ profile] mazzarc, there will definitely be one in Netherhall Lower School again, so no excuses, ;o)
