Ancient Chinese secret huh.....

errrrr. I just woke up late and missed my super hard yoga class I was supposed to take from this yoga master dude here especially from India. THIS! is why I don't drink. Well, I mean I did drink last night. One. Maybe 2.

But my hangover isn't so much from that I don't think. It's more like a chinese food hangover from THE BEST CHINESE FOOD EVER! (in fact, there ARE leftovers in the fridge...) (no, no...today is bagel day) I tell you their general tso's packs a punch! Oh, and they have these handmade dumplings and noodles in this super spicy sauce stuff. You HAVE to get past the hanging upside down rosted ducks in the window though (I just pretend they're paper mache ducks. That the chinese have arts and crafts too)

So naturally I ordered about 5 dishes cuz I wanted a little of everything, and a little of everything turned into A LOT of everything and now I have a shrimpfriedwonton headache.

I also never drink. So when/if I do my friends get ALL excited like they've accomplished some great feat. You can see the pride in their face when I take that first sip as if they're like "hey! I did that! I got her to drink!" not unlike the brothers in the Life cereal commercial of yesteryear...I am the Mikey.

And ALL night I was like "I can't, I have yoga in the morning....I can't I have yoga in the...." Which made them more determined because if I got a vegan to eat fried little pork balls I would bow down to myself too.

Oops. So, now instead of a mind/body connection, it's gonna be more of a coffee/body connection. YAY! way better than indian world sage yoga leaders! I wonder if I'll even ever USE my yoga mat that I hauled over here? well. it's nice to be prepared anyway, to dream big. In yoga we say "it's your INTENTION that matters." Sure does! And now, I am off to my other intention. And I "intend" to be nice. And I "intend" to only have one cup and no chocolate chip cookies that they make fresh in the AM. And then I "intend" to do yoga later. Ah..DREAMS! that's what this country is MADE of!!

Yes, I think if you intended to, or even just thought about it, it's the same as doing it.

now you got me hungry - how was the bagel day? When Bill takes "business" trips (and I make him take us all with him) I figure as long as he works a half of one day, we can call it good!
I can't believe you put ding dongs on your sidebar - oh the memories - the horrible er memories...
