Stuff it

I've got a catch in my low back on the right side (pretty sure it's my SI joint) and it's making me buggy. Instead of my beloved progression to Hanumanasana tonight, I'm going to work on releasing my piriformis and then work on crawling. I am the worst at crawling, you guys. My mom tells me I didn't even crawl when I was a baby. But I think there's something in that movement that would help my back/hip mobility issues. So that'll be a lot of fun.

Woke up this morning super hungry--to the point where I felt a bit nauseated, shaky, and those other things that people describe when they're over-hungry. I so rarely experience this. I have an alarmingly efficient metabolism and my blood sugar is super stable. It was not how I wanted to start my day. I still feel a little wobbly, even after the banana I ate immediately after my shower and the chicken salad I just ate for breakfast. I could think of no reason I felt that way. We had an amazing (and kind of late) dinner, with protein and vegetables. OH MY BODY.

Speaking of my body (in a more positive way), I had a wonderful revelation about how to move deeper and evenly in Supta Padangusthasana B. I'm not gonna try to explain it, but it was an amazing thing to realize that I could, with just a small amount of self-analysis, figure out how to solve a body alignment issue with a few posture corrections and a different focus of energy. AMAZING. It was beautiful to have such a positive reminder of why it's called yoga practice. There's no ultimate goal to it--it will always be practice.

I finally watched The Eagle this weekend. One of the friends we saw it with pronounced it horribly boring and a terrible movie. I was plenty entertained by all the pretty (scenery, costumes, Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell), so I didn't think it was boring. If nothing else, the homo-eroticism in this thing is palpable. It was nice to see the movie for all that Marcus/Esca fic I read. Let's be honest, I'm never gonna get around to reading the books. Notably, Channing Tatum had way more chemistry with Jamie Bell than he did with Mila Kunis although perhaps not as much as he has with Jonah Hill.

In completely unrelated news (I promise): Does anyone know if there are taxidermy classes in the Lawrence/KC area? Found one! It's even accredited through the Kansas Board of Regents, good lord. I think that's a little more involved than what I'm looking for, though, which is probably a good thing. I do not need another hobby that takes up its own room.
