bike a la mode

this is what i look like after doing 7 massages in 2 days. what's that you say? there's a hairy goiter on my rear? no, no, that's just the fat one reigning supreme in my time of weakness.

i'm reading "Eat, Pray, Love" (along with 300,000 of my closest friends) and have just stumbled upon something that i want to tattoo on my forehead: monkey mind. it's pretty self-explanatory, but i'll give you the gist in case you happen to be one of 7 people not reading this book (i feel like such a fad book monger). basically "monkey mind" means your thoughts jump about as if swinging from rope to rope resulting in never quite being present in your own experience. take it one step further by applying it to emotions and you have that warm and fuzzy bipolar teddy bear that you can nuzzle on the bathroom floor at 3am.

what i'm trying to say is, i haven't been posting regularly because i'm too busy chasing my own tail and no one needs to read about that (unless it's written in a new york times bestseller).

as always, i shall now buffer the misery with something exciting. what you are about to see is my newest mode of transportation. it will be arriving on friday, when i'm somewhere in the dead of north carolina en route to my mom's for the weekend.

i just read the "monkey mind" part in Eat, Pray, Love, too. Should we go ahead and just say fuck it and join Oprah's book club? We might as well admit we're posers like everyone else, jumping on the fad train wherever it takes its latest big dump.

(p.s It's a damn good book isn't it)
