ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
(ie; no prana)

One has gained weight recently but not *quite* this much; one was almost this tired during practice today but managed to get through it without incident (no dropbacks but plenty of bouncing up and down) and teach two classes (Mysore and ashtanga basics) and do an interview (heavy metal radio guy) and write eight pages of screenplay (mildly funny) and shop at Trader Joe's* (naan!) and the dollar store (purple swivel-head hangers, 3/$1!) and of course take a nap (1.5 hours, bad lady) before doing what I am about to do: bath, bed and beyond. In that order....

*It's OK to go to Trader Joe's now that the Human Society's action against them just ended. They've agreed not to carry under their house name the regular hormone-laden eggs hatched by abused chickens who lead short and awful lives stacked up in cages:

The majority of eggs currently sold at Trader Joe's are the company's own brand eggs, laid by hundreds of thousands of hens confined in battery cages—wire enclosures so small the birds cannot even spread their wings. These cages are typically stacked on top of each other on hen factory farms, where some 200,000 birds can be crammed into a single, football-field length barn....

The HSUS and Trader Joe's reached an agreement on Monday in which the grocery chain consented to purchase only cage-free eggs for the company's own brand of eggs. The decision is expected to greatly improve the lives of the approximately 380,000 laying hens who provide the more than 100 million Trader Joe's brand eggs sold each year.


For more on what the labels (organic, free-range, cage-free, etc) on egg cartons mean, go here.

    Well, their klives will change, instead of laying eggs they will no become 'wings' at dumps like Hooters.
