Today I [Mar. 23rd, 2010|10:18 pm]
Zoethe
[Current Mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

- Worked out
- Did all the laundry - washed, folded and put away
- Cleaned the kitchen and started the dishwasher
- Worked
- Baked bread
- Did craft work
- Practiced juggling enthusiastically dropping balls
- Did a critique read for Ferrett
- Emptied the dishwasher
- Worked some more in the evening

I think that counts as a successful day. The one thing I'm not doing much of right now is reading, but that will come back around, I'm sure.

Actually, I think I'll go do some now.

Wow. All I did today was argue with people on a political blog.

That's one of my favorite XKCD strips, ever.

Of course, they're all my favorites, but that one has a special place in my heart.

Yeah, that's never gonna get you anywhere, believe me. Look at cute pictures of kittens instead.

How is the "enthusiastically dropping balls" going? Need any pointers? I think you said you're using the Klutz book to learn, right?

I haven't found the Klutz book, working from a different book. It's getting a little closer, but still a ways to go. I think I need to commandeer one of my juggling friends at PenguiCon next month and get an in person lesson.

The Klutz book is fun, should you find a copy. It starts with you tossing a single ball into the air and catching it with the other hand. (and yes, I did practice that for several days.. boring as watching paint dry, but it helps you learn to pass a ball with a vaguely constant arc so your hands don't have to lunge all over)

This book starts the same way. I have that part down!

I underexaggerate a bit. The first step in the Klutz book was actually to pick up a ball and drop it, over and over. I skipped that lesson. (maybe that's why I can't do four balls!)

I would have skipped that as well.

Enthusiastically dropping balls is one of the best ways I've seen to describe the first steps of learning to juggle.

and altitude, I suppose. Given the useful equations between height of throw vs. speed and height of throw vs. control of throw.

Very much so, actually.
