- remember that you must die.
Aw, man, I can’t believe it! Yesterday (Thursday the 28th) was the one-year anniversary of Daily Cross-Swords! And did I post anything then? No. :sigh:
Well sorry about that, lovely lurkers. Anyway, this blog is officially one year old! Celebrate with a festive beverage, go back to post one and read it like a novel!
By the way, here’s some sychronicity: last year, we were getting all excited for our first Advanced Stage combat class. Last year, it was advanced Unarmed and Taihenjutsu. This year, it’s Lightsabers. What a long strange year it’s been…

It’s going to be the last Friday of the month again, and that means it’s Test Night at the BQC!
Bonzuko’s own Jenn will of course be there, this time doing her test demo which takes place on a bus! Come see! Potluck after!
When: Friday May 29, 2009 at 6pm
Where: The Boulder Quest Center
Image is from last month’s test: Jenn and Kim doing a back-to-back joint free response. Good times.
It’s time again for a dip into the Bonzuko photo archive, ready?
Ah, yes: Jenn recently rediscovered the Play Ground Theatre company through the wonders of facebook, and so the pictures from her various play work with them are popping up everywhere. This one is from In The Night Room, a take on Where the Wild Things are. This is Jenn doing a big X-jump as she introduces herself as the “funny monster,” Fudrucker. She was 16 in this pic.
Jeff has been one of my favorite folks to beat up at the Boulder Quest Center, and now he’s off to do missionary work. So close to your TSD black belt, man! And we had what would have been the funniest demo ever performed there all set up. Darn, we should have filmed it that evening, huh? Ah well.
We’ll miss Jeff and his lovely fiancee Victoria very much. Here’s to you guys. God bless. ~Jenn

This weekend is Memorial Day weekend, which in Boulder means the Creek Festival, the Bolder Boulder race, and Jenn’s parents’ anniversary. Lots of excuses to party, basically. But then, in Boulder we always welcome any reason to enjoy a microbrew outside. Heck, we don’t even need a reason.
This Weekend’s Events:
Friday: NinjaFit at the Boulder Quest Center, 5:45-6:45pm. Last week, Aimee Heckel from the Daily Camera came in to sample the class and write a story on it. Rumor has it that this Friday there’ll be a photographer to add to her story. Come by if you want to be fit and famous!
Saturday and Sunday: Boulder Creek Festival: see Jenn help out the Boulder Quest Center with some demos on the stage. Shop at artists’ booths and eat good foods.
Monday: The Bolder Boulder: an annual footrace in Boulder. Celebrate by raising a mimosa to the TV footage of our beautiful city. Or, okay, you can walk or run it if you’re local and you want to…

DO NOT TRY THIS ONE ALONE!!!
