The Journey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLXNcMBDiOU&feature=player_embedded#!

Out of the blue I got an email yesterday from my friend’s totally hot husband. It said, “I need you. Call me.” Um okay.

Then my phone had a message on it from him that said, “I need to talk about you pole dancing for me today. Call me.” I was kinda excited about his first message, not that I would answer the call of the booty with my friend’s husband or anything, but it’s nice to be noticed. The second message filled me with dread. He’s doctor and I was afraid he was going to ask me to pole dance in the ER for a friend’s bachelor party or something. I am so not into that. I was already formulating a nice way to turn him down while I dialed his number.

Imagine my disappointment surprise when it turned out he wanted me to be in a video. Jeff owns a cycling apparel design company and a friend of his posted a photo of him riding his lawn-mower bike. He looked so dorky in his helmet and the thing went viral. Wanting to cash in on its’ popularity, he came up with the idea of a video of him riding around Boulder on his mower bike and running across all kinds of random stuff happening.

So watch the video, that’s me at 1:27 walking my giant dog, Blue, and at 1:57 busting a move on the flagpole near my house. The funny part was when he asked me to do multiple takes. He was like, “Do you think you have it in you to do that again? I don’t want you to hurt yourself” and I’m like (eyes rolling), “You mean do those two moves again? I think I can manage.” I think I finally earned a little respect for my poling sisterhood that afternoon.

There was a broken cleat on the pole and it was a little tricky to work around it. I told Jeff that if I cut my leg open poling for his video, he would have to personally sew me back up. And I demand pain meds.

White Rabbit Black Light Party

White Rabbit This weekend the Boulder Spirals crew threw a pole expo and fundraiser. It was my second time performing in public (if you don’t count the dress rehearsal) and it was interesting to note the differences between my first and second time performing outside of the studio. The most profound difference for me was how I […]

Poisonous Mushrooms

This is Lonny. We have been together over a decade. We have two small children that need us very much. Both of us. But for some reason Lonny thinks it’s okay to find a mushroom in the woods, take it home, check the internet to see if it isn’t poisonous (because the internet is never […]

Undermining Our Health

The Dreaded Underminer

It happened again, the thing I dread. My husband sauntered into my office with a smug grin on his face and said, “Did you hear the news? There’s a new study that says that salt isn’t bad for you. In fact, Americans don’t eat that much salt at all.” This from a guy who dumps salt on everything, often before he tastes it. Seriously, I’ve seen him put salt on cheese.

Breaking Up With the Scale: A Struggle With Orthorexia

I wrote this piece for http://www.peertrainer.com The great irony of this piece is the punch-line: I weighed myself. Ever hear of orthorexia? It’s when someone develops an unhealthy fixation on healthy foods. Total first-world problem, I get it, but I think that might be me. It all started after I had my second child and got really […]
