For a change I thought of a title and had almost nothing to back it up with. So a few comments on my week in no particular order. Attended the Yoga Show [see link] and Conference although all I did was wander the exhibit hall trolling for places to send my resume. Saw some cool stuff but once I was done torturing my feet on the concrete (not to mention my low back) I didn’t have enough gas in the tank to sit through any demos. Too bad because they looked awesome. Worth the 15 bucks for admission? I got at least one free yoga class and at least one good contact for resume sending so I’m going to say yes.
Taught for the first few times at the JCC which is the job I was crowing about a couple of posts ago. Was nice but a little different. My ladies in Markham are the same ladies every time so I get a chance to get to know them and see what they like. This is just a class full of people that I don’t know and I have to make up a class on the spot that suits them. Somehow this requires more planning. How is this possible? Anyway have to put some thought into introducing Pilates to a beginner in a class full of intermediates. This could be difficult. Got a couple of repeat customers and they told the boss I was awesome. Was good since I didn’t think I did such a great job. Guess I’m harder on myself than they are or else these ladies haven’t had the greatest teachers. Maybe they’re just nice.
Today there was clapping. VERY weird for a chick who is terrified of speaking in public.
I returned my tent to the place from whence it came. To anyone reading this:
AVOID SWISS ARMY TENTS AT ALL COSTS!!!
Like 8 poles and they shatter by the third set up. And they shatter nasty and little and then the splinters live in your hands for weeks.
Checked out the new season of The Amazing Race. Have to tell you the right team got killed first, looking forward to a rousing good season.
New show House. Interesting. Can’t decide if I can keep watching it because it conflicts with Veronica Mars, One Tree Hill AND The Amazing Race which is sort of an impossible combination. Have to see what Princess Valium thinks. Hopefully she won’t mind taping TAR and VM for me and then all is good.
We won’t mention that Alias is primed to be a conflict when it comes back on Wednesdays at nine against the West Wing and Kevin Hill. What is it with the nothing on Monday and everything on all at the same time thing? Don’t they understand? We like our tv and we want to watch it. What really cracks me up is that there’s NOTHING on at ten!
Ahh these silly networks. Can’t even discuss my RAGE with the cancellation of LAX yet. The wound is too fresh.
