Will Ferrell does Air Juggling

Hollywood comedian Will Ferrell does some hilarious Air Juggling in the hit TV series "The Office". In the Season 7 episode titled The Inner Circle, Will Ferrell's character, Deangelo Vickers (who is tipped to replace Michael Scott played by the awesome Steve Carell) attempts to motivate the office employees with his juggling routine.

Absolutely hilarious act! And it's done to the enchanting Evanescence song "Bring Me To Life".

Watch Will Ferrell's delightful comedic talent..."Prepare to go into the danger zone..."

Hurray for Juggling!

Juggling by the Bay

Now here's a really sweet spot along the enthralling Marina Bay in Singapore. It's a rooftop pool and bar. I was there recently to juggle at a nighttime dinner-and-drinks event.

I'd advise the wearing of light clothing. It might be cooler at night, but here in the tropics, the humidity will get to you eventually.

More difficult than Juggling

Singapore recently had a "watershed general election" on 7 May 2011. The run-up to the General Election had been both intense and captivating with many newsworthy moments.

This evening, two weeks after the election, the new Cabinet was sworn into office. It's the same Prime Minister, but his Cabinet now comprises 15 ministers instead of 21 ministers as was the case previously. Now that he has a smaller team and is facing a changed political climate, the Prime Minister surely has his work cut out for him. I'd say that he has a job that's really more difficult than the juggling act he quipped about on Nomination Day.

Incredible footwork with this!

This is something that I just had to blog about. Now, it's not a paid review. And it's not even a review of a juggling prop or juggling equipment. It's a review of something I personally use and am recommending this item to anyone reading this.

To begin, I run on the pavement as part of my training as a performing juggler. In a previous post I noted that juggling is a physical activity, so it's helpful to have fitness training in one's regimen.

By the way, my current pair of running shoes are shown in another previous post.

For today's run, I put on a pair of running socks that, well, just blew my socks off. These socks are an incredible piece of apparel to wear with running shoes. They actually make you run better and/or faster.

Just look at the second photo below. The socks are asymmetrical; one is for the Left foot, and the other is for the Right foot. I've summarised the main features:

  • Cushioned heel - thicker where it needs to be.
  • Less bulk - the socks are thinner elsewhere so that the feet have a better fit inside the shoes .

  • Contoured - the socks are knitted to fit the Left and Right feet properly.

Both serious and recreational runners, who run in the usual type or "regular" type of running socks and who are looking to get a boost in their running performance, should get these socks.

Highly recommended.
