Atch-ee-wowow! I just got up from my desk after sitting here for a while and my quads are burning. Twenty-three hours ago Sarah left us in bridge pose for what felt like decades in class last night. She was helping students get aligned properly, it's only the third time this class has met, so it felt like she forgot about us up there. Of course it probably was the same time spent in dolphin, but I'm much stronger in dolphin than bridge. Time is relative times 100 in yoga.
I shopped with a Borders gift certificate at lunch today. It was a gift from a friend for a favor I did. I didn't expect anything in return and was really surprised to get it. But gift horses should not be poo-pooed so I graciously spent it. I bought "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" on DVD. I hope I like it. I like Tommy Lee Jones, cowboy movies and Ebert liked it, so I have my fingers crossed.
For once I didn't over spend with a gift certificate. I typically spend at least the same amount as the gift card because I can't make up my mind. I'm proud of my discipline today. I was walking around with three movies at one point, but I put them all back when I decided on Three Burials.
My dad is off at a hippy-dippy wheatgrass retreat for two weeks. He left early Father's Day so I didn't see him Sunday. I did buy steaks and veggies on Saturday and my sister cooked. So we did celebrate in a low-key fashion. I'm a tad irked at my father right now, so I was kind of glad not to see him. Hope he finds what he's looking for. He wants to "jump-start [his] weight loss." He called my sis the first night and said he was reading under one of two working light-bulbs in the place and said that the accommodations were "primitive." Good luck with that dad.
