Last night I did bikram yoga, and besides having a shitty instructor, the practice itself kicks my face's ass. 26 asanas (poses) in a studio that's heated to 105 degrees with 40%
humidity. I invited my hiking group
to join me, so we got half-off as a group discount - about 30 people came. They agreed it's a great detox and stimulator, but the instructor didn't welcome anybody, and acted like we could've played a cassette to get the drill-sergeant-y speeches. :-P Namaste
I've been neglecting my blog, eh? Sorry. My social life has completely taken over (I has BFFs now! ^_^), and I volunteer as a hiking leader, so I try to go a few times a week. Business sucks, but that's a combo of the economy and me not locking myself in the office like I used to. ::grumble::
My Seattle BFFs are coming to visit me next week, and my parents the week after that -- my 30th birthday is March 21, yay! I don't have a proper party planned, but we're having a Scavenger Hunt and the best tacos in Las Vegas, which will do, but I fret it won't be The Best Party They've Ever Been To, which unfortunately is the standard I'm always subconsciously aiming for.
Last week I had a swap party with my frugal group
and although people left with bags and bags of stuff, there's still a small mountain of clothes, shoes, purses, and jewelry covering every surface of my bedroom and dining room. I'll either box it up for the next one come summer, or I'll drop it off to a charity for the tax write-off. Two thumbs way up for the format though -- you all should have one with your friends and their friends, it's like a free shopping spree!
