Headcanon: When Party Poison and Kobra Kid die, because of their devotion to the Zones and spiritual connections, they take the Phoenix Witch’s place and shepherd souls to the afterlife. Poison collects souls during the day and is associated with the sun, while Kobra collects souls during the night and is associated with the moon. Some say that just before dawn, you can see them wandering the plains together.

I don’t have a great visualization for this, but I imagine them having tribal outfits like the Witch. Poison wears a deer skull that covers the top half of his face, and Kobra wears a goat’s. People paint altars/holy places with plant-made dyes and leave out small toys for them.

sunday was our second rally trial in springfield and machete was first in his class — legit we had to go first! so nerve-wracking!  the course wasn’t that complicated but we finally had figure 8s (with no distractions).

had a bit of trouble getting started, he’s great working around the ring but when we first walk into the ring he wants to SMELL ALL THE SMELLS! and so that took a minute. also, he got a bit barky, so we lost some points for that…but i have no idea how many.

anyway, walked away from the show with a 2nd place ribbon and a qualifying score of 86! funny how it’s a lower score than we got last time but a higher place. holds with what i’ve been told about all breed shows judging harder than club shows. 

and though i was nervous, it was much, much easier than last time. and machete was fantastic.  apparently if we get one more qualifying score (that is, anything above 70) we get a novice title…

totally not prepared for that!

How do you think a killjoy wedding would even go? Just curious :)

Oh, hmm, good question. Every Zone probably has its own rituals, but I can see them hanging on to some old traditions: choosing a nice place in the desert, wearing “nice” clothes, getting married by a religious/spiritual person, having their friends attend, etc. They’d probably serve Killjoy foods like cooked meat, canned foods, etc. Some might have different rituals involving smoke, plants, crystals, stuff like that. They’d probably get hitched outdoors, in the middle of nature. I could probably come up with more if I really thought about it. There’s a lot of potential…(okay, now I want to write about a Killjoy wedding.)

Biggest Pet Peeve about KB training

Lean N Mean posted about this yesterday too, but the it sucks to have a work out day turn into a rest day in the last minute. It means I won’t have another rest day until next Sunday, and this one practically went to shit.

  • You don’t really rest because you’re thinking about your workout, so when you decide you’re not going to do it (at 4:30pm) you could of rested the 9 hours prior.  Waste of a rest day.
  • I started to feel convicted about putting my workout before my family and house, so I didn’t work out earlier - i did the dishes and spent time with my family instead carving pumpkins.
  • I was forced to have a rest day because an old fart at the gym was sitting there f'ing starring at me. I felt super uncomfortable by the creepo.  So i wasted 30 minutes driving and warming up and driving back home.
  • When I got home, the garage was hot because my husband had the heater on (since it was cold in there and it’s his man cave.)
  • And when I started working out again, I realized that I could barely breathe since there’s not enough oxygen in the garage.
  • Than the kids started crying and woke up from their nap.

I am really trying to not be bitter that I had to miss my workout.  I am kinda throwing a fit in my heart because I am not getting what I want.

But if I learned anything this week, it’s that there’s more important things than getting my workout in.  Like not missing the important times with my kids and hubby.  Or working my ass off - in vanity (see quote below.)  There’s a fine line I need to ride between obsession and preparation.  If I want to be ready for the RKC, I need to commit and prepare.  Make it a priority.  But I can’t let myself make it an obsession, putting it before my kids and the short list of higher priorities.

I am determined to enjoy the time I have left of my rest day.  But I have got to start planning better (even my rest days.)  Or else time goes down the toilet and I don’t get anything accomplished.  I"ll post more when I figure out a good training schedule.  It’ll most likely be in the early morning or nap times. 

Unless the Lord builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain. 

It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for he gives to his beloved a sleep.

Psalm 127:1-2

I can imagine KJ parents giving their babies kind of avant garde but semi normal names, like Sky or Scarlet, Beau or Zed, that kind of thing, and then letting the child chose a second part for their name when they grow up. A baby doesn't have a need for a last name, and a name doesn't always reflect who a person is once they grow up

That’s an interesting idea. I thought about people giving their children less traditional names (often-nature based, like Junebug or Thistle), but I like the idea of Killjoys choosing the second half of their names when they’re adults.

10 Most FAQ's About Kettlebells

1.  What is a kettlebell?
A kettlebell is a cast iron weight in a shape of a ball usually with a thick handle.  The bottom is flat allowing it to sit on the ground without rolling around.

2.  Are all kettlebells created equally?  Where can I buy them?
While you don’t have to buy a specific brand of kettlebell, be very cautious on picking up a bargain brand because some may have a cement core and a cast iron shell, which could result in having an uneven balance.  Some may have poorly assembled or too small handles which could result in injury, and some are simply poorly made and will not stand the test of time.  A quality kettlebell will last you forever so don’t end up getting one that you won’t be happy with, just to save a few bucks.  A high quality kettlebell will cost between $4-$8 per kilogram.  To find the most well reviewed kettlebells, visit DragonDoor.

3.  Isn’t kettlebell training really expensive?
All training comes with a cost, whether it is at a gym, studio or via video. The cost of personal kettlebell training is comparable to a personal training session at a gym. Although initially kettlebell training will be more expensive than a gym membership, an average gym membership will cost you between $600-$1,200 a year, where as if cost is your main concern, you can train with kettlebells at home once you are properly trained. 

4.  Is training with kettlebell a well rounded workout?
One of the most common misconceptions about kettlebells is that it is only weight training.  The kettlebell swing will raise your heart rate up to a fat burning level within minutes of starting.  A full body strength training and cardio session is common for those who train with kettlebells.  A recent study came out stating that in a kettlebell training session (if one is swinging and snatching,) it is common to burn up to 300 calories in 20 minutes.  

5.  Can I do kettlebells if I have joint or back pain?
Yes, although you should get your doctor’s approval before starting kettlebell training (or any other training.)  The swing and turkish get-up are known to be great exercises that alleviate back pain.  The hardstyle kettlebell method, which stems from the Russian kettlebell (RKC) method of training, focuses on explosive movements, reinforcing good posture and improving tight or weak muscles.  When done right, kettlebells should be easy on your joints, not strenuous.  To ensure proper form, it’s important to receive training from a HKC or RKC certified instructor. 

6.  Isn’t kettlebells for girls?
Yes.  And men too.  Strong men, like MMA and powerlifting men.  The beauty of kettlebells is that there are various sizes of bells ranging from 4kg (10 lbs) to 48kg (106 lbs.)  Whatever your age, gender or athletic ability, kettlebell training can be contoured for your ability and goals.

7.  Won’t I get bulky?
The most common question I hear from women regarding kettlebells is, “Won’t I get bulky?”  The answer is, no.  I have not heard anyone complaining they are bulky, but there are measures you can take to avoid “bulking up” if that is a concern: lighter bells with more reps focusing on fat burn and toning, plus watching caloric intake.

8.  How many times a week would I need to train to see benefits?
I would recommend starting with two 15-20 minute workouts a week.  Or a longer workout once a week. Everyone’s body will be different and will respond to exercise and diet in a different way.  I personally noticed strength building and toning around week 4.

9.  What will kettlebells do for my body?
The kettlebell swing will melt fat off your stomach, tone up your rear side and make your arms stronger and toned.   Glutes, hamstring and core muscles will develop strength and definition.  As your core muscles become stronger, you’ll notice that you carry yourself with an improved posture.  Moms with children notice they are able to carry them around with more ease. 

10.  Where should I go for training?  
One should be careful of gyms and trainers, as they may neglect to teach you proper form which could be dangerous.  If you are interested, seek out a dedicated kettlebell trainer or studio.  If you absolutely must do video training instead of meeting with a professional, take the measures to find videos by HKC or RKC certified instructors.  I recommend the resources of DragonDoor.

i feel like there would be a lot less dysphoria in the zones because the killjoys are obviously against opression, and gender boundaries are loosely defined, if at all, cause there are much more important things to worry about. also with malnutrition, breasts tend to be the first thing to shrink so binding would become easier or even unnecessary, ya feel? in the city binders would probs need to be homemade cause bli doesnt really support individuality

Good points. I write trans Kobra as using a binder, but when I think about it, he’d probably be flat-chested, considering how skinny he is. And Vaya, Vamos, and Show Pony prove that gender boundaries aren’t strict. I think people would still have dysphoria, because some of that comes from inside (and a lot of them come from a less tolerant city), but they wouldn’t face as much prejudice.

HC: besides the regular car races (road rage races is what i like to call 'em) there are also car shows. Who's got the weirdest, best graffitied motor in all the zones? Who dressed it up the best? How flashy or iconic is it? How revs the engine? The winner gets like, some gas, or something, or lucky dolls to hang from their mirror (like the mousekat head in the trans am). It also helps if you've got a shiny joy presenting the car, of course......

I love this idea. I never really thought of Killjoys having car shows, but I’m sure they would. You know some people would jump at the chance to show off, lol. Plus it doesn’t use up gas like a race would.
