Noted this day

There are not enough synonyms in the English language for "walk" and "look".

There are especially not enough synonyms for "glare" and "stare".

I really don't know what to do about "walking stiff-legged" because I don't believe that the term "stalked off" should be used more than, say, once per 50,000 words.

In other news, Stepdaughter won second place in one of her Science Olympiad events, and she has taken well to me calling her "my little nerd" because she knows that's a pretty high compliment in my book. Tonight we watched The Core with splash_the_cat and trashed-talked the bad science.

Also, Tai Chi this morning kind of rocked. I really didn't want to go, but I was so glad I did. By the end, I was loose and limber and in a much better frame of mind than when I woke up this morning. I'm learning a much less athletic form than I took when I was younger, which has caused a few problems--I get too low and lean too much--but the emphasis of this form on balance and understanding the space my body is in seems to be helping my general lack of coordination quite a bit.

The end.
