Homeless man in Sales

I walked by a homeless man sitting in a big red armchair on the sidewalk, waving around a brown paper bag in one hand and gesticulating madly with the other hand while bellowing "Only 25 cents and you can have this beautiful red chair!!" and I couldn't help but think it's probably not the best advertising strategy to be sitting in it. He should have been standing next to it pointing to its pristine promise.

Arianna Huffington is a Yogi.

Yesterday I found myself looking up the yoga class I had committed to taking with Arianna. When I found the class description online I blinked three times in rapid succession. It was titled ADVANCED YOGI and TEACHERS PRACTICE and the format was described as: Although it will not be "formally" instructed [WAIT, WHAT DO YOU MEAN?! FORMALLY INSTRUCT ME PLEASE!! I NEED FORMAL INSTRUCTION!!!], it will be led by the teachers in the room in a round robin format [ROUND ROBIN FORMAT]. All are welcomed to contribute an asana [WHAT THE F IS AN ASANA??!!] or a sequence. Come join us as we strengthen our community bond [THE COMMUNITY THAT VIRANCHYASANA'S TOGETHER STAYS TOGETHER I GUESS] and take our practice to the next level [YOU MEAN MY SIXTH YOGA LESSON RIGHT? BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE MY 'PRACTICE' IS AT]. It's gonna be a blast! [BLAST ME TO THE NEAREST EXIT PLEASE.]

I explained to Arianna that as a five time yoga practitioner I didn't think my participation would be appropriate. It turns out she's quite advanced from doing yoga for many years now...and I thought to myself, "I know she's a blogger, an author, and a political activist but who would have guessed she's also a yogi??!!" What else do I not know about this tremendous lady? Who is the real Arianna??!!"

Does anyone else sleep with one eye half open?!

It may appear that my pinky finger is the culprit here but in fact I have been caught several times without a pinky finger to blame (recently woke up on the plane with a dry left eye) so it's for real. A BIG thank you to Jonah for capturing this!! Otherwise who would have known?! Pretty too!!

Heartache at American Kennels

JUST IN...

I heard a story from a distraught friend that would break your heart. It involves puppies bought at American Kennels on Lexington between 61st & 62nd. The details are grim and the amount of emotional (nightly hospital visits to the puppies for weeks) and financial suffering are great. The saddest thing is that I know he's not the first and only person to experience problems with this store . Do you know of other similar stories concerning this pet store? Or other stores or breeders? Please let me know.

5 AM on Saturday

The nice thing about jetlag from a Europe trip is that when the alarm wakes you at 5 AM (for an 8 AM flight) you feel AWAKE, WAKE, WAKE!! Good morning, alarm clock! It's nice to hear your morning energy! I finally feel like we're in this together.

Off to Martha's Vineyard for my dear friend Celeste Peterson's wedding and for some preppy fun in Nantucket!

Will post on Wednesday the 27th if not before then!

Ciao! (Unable to let go of Italy)
