I practically killed a celebrity....and other stories in the news...

A famous chick came to my class last night. And during crow pose she sprained her wrist JUST as I was yelling at everyone "Don't wimp out in crow....DO IT!"

oops.

SO much for my celeb following. And on another note, what cracks me up living in LA is reading Yoga instructor bios. If your'e ever bored at work just go to any random LA yoga studio site and read the bios...WRITTEN by the teachers themselves btw. And you will find, 10 times out of 10, the words "Teaches classes around the world" (because they once showed their cousin a few poses in mexico)  "inspirational" and "CELEBRITY following." It's quite amusing. My MOST favorite though is when it's all "so and so has been practicing yoga since the age of 2..." Riiiiiighht.

But the REAL exciting news of the week is twofold. ONE...I figured out how to make Vegan Ranch Dressing!!!!! Life is complete. Must add this to my yoga bio. (and it tastes amazing, Bitches!) And TWO..


ANGRY. BIRDS. SHANGHAI EDITION.

'nuff said.

ps. Before you get all judgy, I just want to add that I spent countless brain cells and hours devising this vegan ranch recipe because if you BUY ranch mix it has "less than 2% buttermilk" which I would NOT have! SO I chopped up my own herbs and pepper and stuff and made my own....only to end up using it on regular cheese quesadillas. But hey...THE RANCH WAS VEGAN!!!

I know a few vegans who mentioned I should carry vegan desserts in my bakery. And this is why I cant! "less than 2% buttermilk." I would accidentally use something that a cow looked at and then bam, the vegans would hate me. There would be a boycott and they would tweet me out of business.
I can't have that. But kudos to you for the ingenuity. And the almost celebrity killing.

No Mario Lopez, yet, huh? I'm sure he can bend like an evil, stupid pretzel.

The world needs more yoga instructors like you that yell at their class and play cool music. Instead of Enya chanting and whisper soft voices telling you to breathe, I want a yoga instructor to yell "Stretch, Bitch!" while we listen to Gaga. But maybe there's something wrong with me.

Well, I say it's her fault for being all cute and tiny.

And it cracked me up that you used your vegan dressing on cheese quesadillas, but I'm glad it turned out great!

I would love the new ranch recipe...(are you SURE it's good!?) AND to read YOUR yoga bio! :)
Please share!

vegan is an old polish word meaning "lousy hunter"

It just goes to show you how lame celebrities are. Try being a normal weight with lumpy thighs and doing that stuff--yeah.

If she sprained her wrist during yoga, then she is just lame! ha ha! I'm kidding! Oh, and I am going to try your ranch dressing!
