+ I got invited to read a short story that I wrote for my class at a student reading next week. There are only five of us reading and I am the only graduate student. (I feel weird calling myself a graduate student, since I'm only taking one class a semester and don't plan on getting a degree, but I have to admit that "graduate student" sounds better than "writer-disguised-as-librarian-posing-as-student.") I have not read anything out loud at any sort of reading in years, and I'm pretty nervous. But if you're going to be in Nacogdoches next Thursday and are interested in hearing my voice waver and crack, you should check it out.
+ Speaking of Facebook, I've been working hard to uphold my end of trading words for yoga. In addition to the monthly newsletter, I've taken it upon myself to create a fan page for Morning Glory Yoga Studios, as well as revamping and updating the blog. I like doing this sort of thing - using my Internet Powers for good, promoting my friend's business, spreading the word that yoga is awesome. At the very least, my karma points are surely going through the roof.
+ Last night for our weekly Lost + dinner date, I made two recipes from VeganYumYum - Sweet Chili Lime Tofu and Apple Pie Coffee Cake. Both were a huge hit, through only the cake was pretty enough to be photographed. I was too busy eating cake to get the pictures off my camera - maybe later, unless I get distracted by leftovers.
+ So far, 17 of you (!) have voted in my poll and a clear winner has emerged - I shall not have a beer until next Wednesday. Which will be hard, yes, but knowing how many of you actually care about my self-imposed challenge will make it that much easier.
+ Today is Friday. Tomorrow is lots of things - a 5K race at 8:00am, a free yoga class at 11, a plant sale in between. Tomorrow is also supposed to be stormy, with lots of rain. Which would put a damper on all my outdoor activities (ha!) but I can never begrudge a good rainstorm.
+ I am thinking of getting this haircut - what do you think?
