New things done

Found in the 23rd St. 8th Ave. station, northbound platform, around 24th St. I hope you can read the text, as it was pretty interesting.

Lately, thanks in part to the end of my school year & Erin's graduation, we've had a little more time to do things. This week we went to a knife skills class & saw 'Foot Fist Way'.

The class was very interesting, and I feel I learned a lot. Like how to cut an onion properly, reducing (but not eliminating) the amount of irritation. And how to cut a bagel without killing yourself. (Show of hands: how many of you thought of BDSM when I said 'Knife Skills'? And how many thought of martial arts?)

The movie was pretty good. I was worried I wouldn't like it as it's one of those awkward comedies that generally make me want to run away in sympathy rather than laugh. But in the end, I thought it was funny and sweet. I was probably one of the only people in the audience that recognised the forms as authentic. This film deserves more audience. Give it :-)

The first thing that popped into my head was a cooking-sort of class, but then I thought "this is Peter, it could be anything!" :-D

Actually, we took Knife Skills 1 at The Institute for Culinary Education down in Chelsea. The instructor was awesome!

He just published a book on knife skills even. It comes with a DVD illustrating all the techniques, but somehow I imagine it lacks the goodly Jewish humor he displayed in class.

I mentioned this to my brother ("Chef Boyardee") and he's intrigued. My mom claims he's deathly afraid of cutting himself, so a class on how to use knives could be beneficial for him.
