A quickie, because I want to get to bed reasonably early tonight (and as I just told a friend moments ago, early ends now, seeing as how it's midnight).
I had a really lovely weekend. For one thing, I got a really odd sunburn on one side of one leg only, and who could argue with the wonderfulness of that?
Also this weekend, I got a lot of sleep AND I got a lot stuff done AND I spent a lot of time outside AND I read a great book AND I spent a lot of time with my boyfriend AND I went to yoga .
 Like, my taxes. WHY DO I OWE LIKE $5000 AGAIN??? TAXES SUCK. Also, I choreographed three dances yesterday. In the park. How great are iPods?
 Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Of course, since everyone else loves this book, there's a part of me that wanted not to love it, but there is no denying it: it is fabulous. Of course, I am a little cranky that people have begun to think the name of my blog is derivative of this book, as though they have any connection at all, as though I'd ever heard of the book when starting this blog, or even two years earlier when I first used "ReadDanceBliss" as my username on some networking site somewhere. But there is a huge parallel there too; check it out.
Read/Eat? I LOOOOOOVE to do these at the same time, love to lose myself in both. Reading and eating - this is my favorite hedonism.
Dance/Pray? Her "pray" is actually largely yoga, which is not so different from dance. Plus, the particular kind of dance I teach is meant to be a religious practice of sorts, and I am often called up to teach a "Prayer Through Dance" workshop.
I can't deny it; I loved this book. I read the "Eat" section on Friday, a day I spent largely in bed or at an outdoor cafe. I read the "Pray" section on Saturday, the day I went to yoga and choreographed three dances. I read the "Love" section today (Sunday), the day I spent in lazy comfortable bliss at my boyfriend's place. Ahhhhhhhhhh.
 First time with my fabulous new birthday-present yoga mat - thank you D&A!!! It was woooooonderful (except since it's new, it was really slippery and I had to work extra hard to hold on and now I'm extra sore! But I am unbelievably happy to be this sore :)
In other news that you probably already know, I really want to buy a house, like, soon. Like, in 2008. Got advice? Books to recommend? Brokers, agents, lenders, managers, renters to introduce? Hook me up! Tell me what you know or what you wish you had known! HELP!! I am so terrified.
