Tips for Trapeze Students

By kate on January 29th, 2014

Since the summer of 2012, I’ve been taking regular flying trapeze classes at Emerald City Trapeze. I love it, and am currently close to mastering the cutaway half. In my year and a half as a trapeze student, I’ve picked up little tips and tricks along the way that I wish someone had told me […]

Another growth spurt

By kate on December 29th, 2005

In the past two days, Zippy has gone on another growth spurt. My belly feels more stretched and large, and Zippy sticks out most of the time (as opposed to being more toward my back). I can also feel her moving most of the day. There is less kicking, but more shifting around, and it’s […]

Aerialistas perform this weekend!

By kate on December 7th, 2005

If you made it to last year’s Moisture Festival, you know how awesome it was. For two nights this weekend (Friday and Saturday), the Moisture Festival is putting on a benefit show to raise money for this year’s festival (in March). Many local performers from last year’s festival will be there, including Circus Contraption and […]

Our newly redesigned Aerialistas website is finally online. I didn’t design it, but I did all the coding. (Yes, it’s made with frames. No, I’m not proud.) And now, pictures of me in my undies are on teh internets. Not sure how I feel about that…

The pregnancy continues to progress. Here are some notable developments lately: I’ve become clumsy. I guess this is a magnification of the usual PMS/hormone-related reduction of spatial capabilities (aka hand/eye coordination). It’s annoying to keep dropping things, and to know this may not go away for months to come. So, don’t let me use any […]

Dragging a bit

By kate on August 30th, 2005

I’m back from my trip, and my cold is mostly gone. I’m still dragging, though. I have this headache that comes back on most days. I’m trying to resist taking anything for it, for the baby’s sake, but sometimes I’ve had enough and take some Tylenol (which is OK for pregnancy). I’ve also been taking […]

Guerilla Aerial!

By kate on July 8th, 2005

Yesterday, to promote the current Circus Contraption show, a couple of us staged a guerilla aerial event in Pioneer Square during the Art Walk. What that really means is that we put up an aerial rig with a tissu on it, and switched off doing little improvised sets. Even though it was pretty rough, the […]

Being active

By kate on July 8th, 2005

So much of the material I’ve found about exercising when pregnant is targeted toward women who don’t usually exercise much. I assumed most people work out to some degree, but maybe not. It’s been hard to find good advice for someone like me who runs and plays soccer. I did find this recent article. Today […]

… In exactly the way that bricks don’t

By kate on April 8th, 2005

First, the movie I’ve been waiting for is finally coming out: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I’m a little nervous, though, as to whether it’ll be a good take or not. Also, the burlesque show (Sat 11pm) and tonight’s 10pm show at the Moisture Festival are sold out. Other shows are also selling out, […]

Moisture Festival – quick update

By kate on April 4th, 2005

I don’t have much time to write, but our performance on Saturday at the Moisture Festival burlesque night went swimmingly. The crowd really seemed to enjoy it. NOTE: If you’re planning to come to any of the Moisture Festival shows next weekend, I highly recommend you get your tickets ASAP. Both shows on Saturday (8pm […]

This ‘n that

By kate on March 8th, 2005

Damn LiveJournal for eating the longer version of this post! Now, I only feel like posting the basics: 1. After staying home sick all week and watching lots of TV, I found that Degrassi: The Next Generation is as enjoyable as its predecessor (Degrassi Junior High). 2. The Aerialistas will be performing 4 or 5 […]

Aerial photos

By kate on January 6th, 2005

One day I’d like to write more about how amazing it was to perform in our aerial shows last month… but in the meantime, check out our fledgling website (click on the pictures link at the bottom).

Upcoming aerial performances

By kate on December 8th, 2004

I’ve been a little hesitant to publicize the upcoming performances of my aerial group, the Aerialistas, because it still feels a little like a dream that will vanish if I pinch myself. Nonetheless, our shows are approaching rapidly, so here are the details: 1. Moisture Festival Fundraiser, Saturday Dec. 11. We’re doing our rope number […]
