Lots to cover today, fellow half-fullers, so here goes:
SOBCon (the contest)

And hey, go on and register for SOBCon!
Update on the 30 Day Yoga Challenge
Recall I’ve pledged to practice yoga every day for 30 days as part of a challenge at my local studio. Today is day number 21, and I’ve managed to keep my word so far. There’s nothing like getting up at 5:30AM on the road and plopping my Rodney Yee Yoga DVD into my laptop and hitting the mat.
Rodney’s a yoga “rockstar” for me, because for whatever reason I find his videos to be the best. And he does this stuff with such precision and ease. He’s such a rockstar that when one of the owners of my studio recently mentioned that he practiced yoga with Rodney Yee, it was like he had jammed with Led Zeppelin. “You practiced with Rodney Yee – awesome“!
A rock idol in my lifetime, yes (see Elton John) – but a “yoga idol“? Life is too funny.
Oh, one other thing – I mentioned I wanted to learn something from all of this. Well, my sore shoulder, hip and knee all agree that I’ve learned this so far – I shouldn’t practice every day. Oh to be 25 again…….. 🙂
End World Hunger…..One Grain of Rice at a Time
Dr. Delaney Kirk tagged me (or challenged me, really) to go to a site called Freerice.com, where you get to play a vocabulary game that donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program for every time you can guess the correct definition of a word (you get a little help since it’s multiple choice).
I’ve been doing it this afternoon and it’s a heck of a lot of fun for the brain – I got up to level 42 but didn’t get “stypic” (rats) and dropped back to 41. Can you beat level 42? How about you Ben? Maria? Mary? Rosa? Steve? Liv? Terry? Gal? Jodee? Karen? Terri? How about all my other blogging friends? I double-dog dare ya! (and it’s for a great cause too).
Thanks Dr. Kirk for this tag!
