[livejournal.com profile] heisenbug and I went to see a belly dance show at the Green Street Studios. Some of the dancers I found myself unable to appreciate, but some of them were just amazing. I love that whole boneless, fluid, slow thing that some belly dancers have going on. I took classes in that once... and would love to do it again, truth be told. Maybe after spring semester is over. I don't naturally have the slow, twisty arm movements, but I'd sure like to learn... and it's one of the few forms of dance where a long torso comes in handy.

In the spirit of [livejournal.com profile] islenskr's once-a-week picture posting, here is a yoga pose I failed to adequately describe to someone today:

It's a little bit face smashy... but oh, my arms look ripped. :) Pleasant surprise there.

Someone told me recently that she always feels self-conscious and tries to be really unobtrusive in the gym... just does the machines, doesn't do experiments with the equipment, etc. I was expecting her to say she felt fat or not strong enough, and then she said "I worry about making people feel bad by shining too brightly." Wow! That's sweet, and quite the opposite of what I usually hear, but I wouldn't have any fun at the gym if I acted like that. Let 'em eat cake and wear sunglasses, I say.

For my lifting friends, a new adductor exercise to love ) 1:30 and 1:55 handstand holds today for the non-record. I did do a straddle-up when completely exhausted, though. That is good.

Such interesting things are stirring, career-wise: it looks like TBC and Dan the Cat and I may all be making separate bids to get into Google this year, for various reasons. Only TBC and I would be colocated in Cambridge since this would be the Cat's way of making a break for Manhattan, but still, they are probably the two people I would most like to work with again in any capacity, so if this were to work out it could be stellar. Bit of a shame we all have our sights set on a place that's wicked hard to get into. We're good, but going three for three is statistically not likely. Wish us luck... and [livejournal.com profile] heisenbug too, of course, for those tasty little referral bonuses.

So hard in the cold.
