Desert living. Yes. Desert. Not dessert. Though wouldn't both be nice??

I am in palm springs on a working vacation. "what's that?" you ask.

It's when you invite your friends to come on a yoga retreat but make them pay for it! Seriously, how is this not a worldwide phenomena?

It is so perfectly beautiful here. The sun is shining at a good 80 degree breeze. I am making homemade granola for my retreaters, I have NO DOGS for the WHOLE WEEKEND, and all I have to do is float around a pool barking out yoga poses to my devoted followers! YAY ME!

But you know what? THERE'S NO INTERNET HERE!!! I have to type all this on my stupid iphone. That's why it'll be short and SWEET. I have to get busy "working" anyway. Time to bake some chocolate cookies.

erm, those are totally for the retreaters.

Not even FOR ME.

Totally for them.

Because I'm WORK-ING.

i want to be you when i grow up.

Me too.

I'm trying to figure how that would go with my current job. Getting people to come to Palm Springs on their dime to do HR paperwork. That should go over big.

Believe me. The lack of Internet is a killer, as I learned this weekend. I was able to find a provider that let us pay $25 for 3 days of access. It was worth it!

I want your job. Seriously. At this point, the only thing stopping be from being a yoga instructor is an extra 30 pounds and the inability to touch me toes. Minor details, right?!

Uh, Lady of perpetual chaos...I'm weighing in at a couple of bills...That doesn't stop you AT ALL from sitting at the front of a room telling OTHER people what to do!

I have so many questions and so few answers. To boot, you are lost somewhere in the dessert, so I am not sure if you will even be able to respond.

I'll try anyway...

1) Where is the picture of the Manolos? How am I to salivate over a pair of shoes that I cannot see?

2) Why wasn't I invited to the dessert for the retreat? Is it because of the sweating that I mentioned because I would totally buy special deorderant for you.

Just for you.

So, now I just need a cool yoga mentor to get me hooked up and I'm on my way! You've got connections in Utah, right?!
