I seem to be on a roll

I went back to yoga today for the first time in over two years. I was a bit nervous about it, which turned out to be pretty silly on my part. I might not be the strongest or thinnest in the room, but outside of the teacher, I am always the most flexible, and I always seem to forget that. I just take my flexibility for granted almost all of the time. It's not until I get confronted with proof that others can't automatically bend in the way I can that I remember it.

Which is all a long way of saying I had fun. I even went back tonight for a cardio workout on the elliptical. Go me. Of course, I had four tacos for dinner so I felt like I needed the extra exercise to work it off anyway, lol.

I got home and watched the next episode of season 1, the demon in the internet episode. Best part about it will always be the introduction of Jenny. Her exchange with Giles--"I'll be in the Middle Ages." "Did you ever leave?"--still makes me laugh out loud. I love how she challenges him. God, I'm going to break when she gets killed later.

On a completely unrelated note, I have had Beatles songs going through my head since Sunday, with no respite in sight. I watched "Across the Universe" for the first time Sunday night, so yeah, that's why the music has stuck. I absolutely loved the movie, by the way. I was stunned at how well integrated the songs were and how they became completely new to me just because of the context. Sure, it gets psychedelic in parts, but the singing is incredible. I'm a little in love with Dana Fuchs, who played Sadie. She was stunning.
