So I highly recommend meeting someone in person you know in the blogsphere. I met Kristen Havens yesterday for brunch at a hipster place on Sunset and had a blast with her. Cool chic with a cool website.
Added bonus? Actually gave me the willpower to start the low-carb diet again. Going fine so far. Then I went back to S for the first time in a month, and accidentally wound up in a makeup class with a different teacher and students. I wandered into the Amazon Women on the Pole Class, and it was heaven. For once, I was the youngest and smallest in the room. Totally inspired by their bravery and gusto and sexiness. No more excuses; those women are ALL upside down on the pole, darnit. AND doing 'Ronde Jambe' and 'Corkscrew.' No excuses about the extra pounds to lift.
Added bonus of having an older and wiser teacher? Rad 80s music to S to like "Jukebox Hero" and "Hot Blooded" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me." What a blast. And I got to lapdance on the back pole to Dido's "Here With Me" which is the perfect mood/speed for me. Fun fun fun and I am sore sore sore today. Totally had the foot cramps and leg shakes back in class, and a cherry of a bruise on my arm and thigh today. Ah well. At least I can still walk in the six inch heels.
