Dogs and Cats Living Together

The Sensei started us on double nun chucks last night. So instead of hitting myself with just one pair I get to hit myself with two. Double the chance of getting a concussion. But it looks very impressive. Well, it would minus the pained expression

In other news: I'm done with these wild fires. We're surrounded by them and the smoke has blocked out the sun. Apparently these fires create their own weather system so I walked out of the apartment this morning to grayish brown skies that were sprinkling rain and ash. It's Armageddon, people. Find your can opener and head down to the bunker.

Please, oh please take pictures with the double nunchucks. And I know how you can get out of the ash and smoke. My sparest of spares is waiting for you!

A picture would be awesome, A video would be BETTER!! We all have cabin fever, my kids are going crazy wanting to swim. Sorry kiddos breathing this crap isn't the best idea :( Don't you have magic powers to make it rain? ;)

If Big Santa Anita Canyon burns, there will be almost nothing keeping me in California any more. I can't even read about this fire - it's already burned up so many places I've known and loved. I'm sick, sick, sick in my heart about this. I'll have to move to wet Washington and fall in love with another place, one that will hopefully never burn.

I'm watching to see if those fires head down this way. So sorry you're breathing in that stuff. No bueno. I hope you've packed lots of fun stuff in your basement as well as nutritious stuff. If I had to hide out for survival purposes, I would love to do with you and your family. they would find us, months or years later, thin and chuckling....perfection!

(Hi, Rachel, I'm new to your blog!)

Are they really called "nun chucks"? I always thought "num chucks" for some reason. I would also like to second the motion for a video posting.

At least you have your nun chuck skills to ward off looters when they come for your food storage!

Always looking on the bright side.

Rebecca, I'm actually amazed at how many people think they're called num chucks. I had never heard numchucks until I started taking the class and I would say, "I'm taking a nunchucks class," and people would look at me weird and say, "Don't you mean numchucks?"

And welcome. Make sure you get a cookie on your way out.

Not a single soul has mentioned the best part of this post which is the title. So I shall.

Love the title.

Rach said...

Empress of Venus, you're right! How could we all ignore the reference to Ghostbusters! We can always count on Rachel for a good Bill Murray quote.
