Off to Houston, TX with my Sk8 Family for another awesome skate weekend!!
We had a magnificent time!! There aren’t many skating pictures because I took a lot of video (which, at the time, I did not realize).
Also, there weren’t as many people at the sk8 party as I had anticipated, and most of everyone was local to the area (Illinois, Kansas, Ohio – 2 very sexy brothers from Alabama!). It turns out there were only 150 people there each night. It was a tad bit disappointing, but I saw some of my sk8 family and added a couple to it.
On our drive back, we stopped Sunday night in Kansas City and I skated at Winnwood for their adult night. More people were there than at St. Louis’s actual inter-state sk8 party!
On our way to Sedalia Friday morning to get some coffee! It was a gorgeous morning drive after sleeping at a rest stop in the car Thursday night.
Good morning and happy hump day, you lovely people!!
Alaska introduced me to Total Life Changes a few weeks after we started seeing each other. I was telling him about my work frustrations one night and asking him if he had a way I could get the hell outta there. I was kind of kidding, but he had an answer: I can build my own business!
It’s one of the ways he visibly takes care of me every day. He checks up on my progress and my contacts, he offers support and answers when I need help and have questions.
That being said…
Sales pitches aren’t my thing at all, but I REALLY want to share this with everyone I care about! I am SO excited about these products and the program!! I’ve lost 7 pounds in the last 3 weeks and I feel more energetic and healthy than I ever have.
If you want to get healthy and feel better, please come and see what I am talking about: healthy coffee and cocoa and a night-time chai that will melt off the pounds while you sleep better and wake up more rested; an amazing cleansing Iaso tea that guarantees you will lose 5 pounds in 5 days…! But the long term body balancing and rejuventaing effects of the Ganoderma and Chaga are even more awesome! There are skin care products, and even an online fitness program to help you stay on track.
And, if you’re interested in making some extra money on the side, you can sign up to be a IBO yourself! After people sign up underneath you and start selling too, you could make enough money to pay for your products; even MORE!!
Please visit my product page to see what has me so excited!! And feel free to contact me through my blog if you have any questions. If I can’t help you, Alaska will!
Oh my goodness! Last weekend was amazing! There aren’t even words to express the amount of fun that I had.
It was great that I brought Thing #1 instead of (pretty much) anyone else. We had such a good time, I can barely figure out what to write!!
Rather than going over the minute and pesky travel details with you (because everything went so smoothly), I’ll just get to the good part.
Thursday night we drove to Stockton to a place called Residence Rink. When we got to the address on the directions, it seemed strange: it was a house in the middle of a residential area. As we drove by the first time, both Thing #1 and I thought, This seems more like a house party. There appeared to be bouncers in the parking lot, and the ‘parking lot’ really wasn’t much more than a drive-through driveway. We doubled-back when we saw the DJ’s bus stopped at a gas station and decided to follow them.
The bus drove back to the exact place where we had just been. We parked on the street (because that was the only parking available) and discussed it for a minute. We even called 411 to call the place and talk to a person. 411 had no record of a roller skating rink in Stockton, CA.
So, because the scene seemed kinda fishy and both of us are too shy for our own good, we decided just to return to the hotel…
It turns out that it’s a legitimate rink.
Friday night at the warm-up roll, I talked to one of the hosts. Someone converted their upstairs into a roller skating rink. It’s small, but it has a great wooden floor and people go there all the time. I mentioned that I wished we had known that – if we had, we would have know better and gone in and skated…
Friday we woke up and got groceries. Then, in the afternoon we took a country drive, sat in the shade by the hotel pool and rested to get ready for 5 hours of roller skating that night from Midnight to 5AM.
Thing #1 tried to keep up. She really did! But, after her first 3 hours, she was totally beat. Regardless, she endured until 4AM the first night. I am so proud of her!!
We got back to the hotel and fell into our beds around 5AM Saturday morning. I was only able to sleep for a couple of hours (that’s how I get on these sk8ventures) but I didn’t wake up Thing #1 until about an hour before it was time to leave for the picnic.
The food was amazing and the music rocked! TwoRaw Skate Club knows how to host a party!!
(BTW – If you ever want a really hoppin’ picnic, make sure you hire a DJ, yo!)
Saturday night skating was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!! There were a couple of groups that drove up from Los Angeles and I got to see some friends I met in Phoenix back in February who I wasn’t expecting to get to see…
I am so proud of myself!! Normally I wouldn’t put myself out there and talk to new people. Normally I am a wallflower who just observes quietly. But last weekend I went around introducing myself to strangers and meeting Facebook friends I had never met in person… It totally paid off. I met some great new people who are practically famous in the Skate Community and I got to add them onto my ever-growing skate family!
Sunday afternoon there was bowling, but we decided not to go.
Thing #1 was so sore and tired. I let her sleep late into the afternoon and the she took a hot bath to relax.
When it came time for the cool-down skate at 10PM Sunday night she simply couldn’t find the energy to go. And her body hurt so bad…
But *I* went! (Of course! Did you expect anything less?!)
Most of the out-of-towners had left; there were only a few stragglers from Los Angeles. None of my Skate Family… 😦
Because of that, it was interesting skating the final night. The only people who even acknowledged that I was there were the skate hosts (who were wondering where my partner went) and the out-of-towners. No matter, though. It was a really peaceful and quiet night. I skated the entire 3 hours.
The floor was so smooth, I didn’t want to stop rolling…
And now, here’s a video of the picnic and Saturday Night’s Main Event made by my friend Jamal!
Woo hoo! I’ve been doing this for years!
Yogi fans and recreational pot-users weigh in with sage advice.
Admit it — with all this wellness and legalization on the rise, combining these two recreations has crossed your clever mind. So let’s just get it out there on the table like the healthy communicators we are.
What are the benefits of extra-zen, cannabis-aided yoga?! What are the potential downsides of bending backwards while high…?
We’ve got those answers for you, and more, thanks to one future-yoga-studio-owner who asked the question and prompted quite the discussion. Here’s what people — who’ve paired the activities before — had to say.
- Can increase focus and enrich meditation
- Can allow for a greater feeling of connectedness with others
- Can enhance body awareness
- “Marijuana can often enhance your ability to focus on one thing, and with well trained and compassionate teachers that make sure the students aren’t pushing themselves and are within their limits I think a wonderful balance can be struck.”
- “It is an amazing experience that helps open my mind and body to learning. I feel relaxed, more willing to challenge myself, more connected to my yogi community in class, and the meditation/visualization exercises are extremely enjoyable.”
- “I used to enjoy a few hits and then attend a restorative class called “Sunday Sanctuary” and it was like heaven. Very relaxing and I found I was MUCH more aware of my body and breathing.”
- Can cause anxiety (aka: paranoia)
- Can lead to over-stretching
- Can make it logistically difficult to drive to and from the studio…
“I personally find that marijuana interferes with meditation, which is the main part of my practice personally, but some Shavite sects still ritually use it. Sadhus, which are renunciate yogis, regularly use it.”
“I tend to pull something if I’m not totally paying attention, were I high I know I’d fuck myself up even more.”
“Some people experience high levels of anxiety during their first time being high. I’d imagine the meditative components of yoga would ameliorate most newbies” anxiety, but not all. Just something to think about.”
“I used to combine the two, but I came to realize that when high, I was not as mindful as I could be (I was more absent-minded than undistracted and focused) and a few times, I actually pushed myself into a bad place for my joints because I was not mindful.”
For those still interested in grabbing their best bud and trying out the hybrid activity, here are some words from the wise:
Caveats of doing yoga high:
- Use a vaporizer instead of a pipe “Can be used inside without leaving a haze, and easier on the lungs for a breath-oriented practice like yoga.”
- If you go to a class make sure your teacher’s not high (LMAO – good one!!) “I think good teachers could make sure the students are safe regardless of sobriety. I wouldn”t condone the teachers being high.”
- Be experienced in both pot and yoga before you try it “Since it numbs pain, I”m conscious of being too high and pushing stretches too hard. It might end up causing damage. I would only suggest it for experienced pot smokers who also practice yoga.”
- Consider trying it with restorative yoga “While I probably wouldn”t participate in any kind of power yoga or ashtanga after dabbling with weed, I do love some nice hatha, light vinyasa, and ESPECIALLY restorative!!!”
I’m horny this week. Can you tell? Maybe it’s this new “Female Rejuvenator” I’ve been taking from Swanson Vitamins — Shatavari Root. I have been trying to holistically ‘cure’ a few of my minor aging symptoms and been practicing some Ayurvedic treatments and herbs — it seems to be working! Either for real or as a placebo effect, I don’t give a crap – I’m feeling better.
Also, I find some really cool articles and stories about sex when I am looking for blog content.
Here are just a few of the things I just learned in the article: Flex While you Sex. Get Off and Get the Fat Off
- “Kissing can burn anywhere from 120-325 calories an hour,” say Sex experts Celeste Hirschman, MA and Danielle Harrell, PhD
- Giving a massage can burn up to 80 calories an hour. If you’re the one giving the massage, you can burn off at least one Jameson shot. I’m sure you took a lot more than one, but hey it’s a start. (ROFLMFAO!!)
- If you can incorporate yoga into your oral sex (without hurting yourself), you can burn close to 75 calories per hour.
- The average experience of intercourse can burn anywhere between 50 and 100 calories. The average sex session last 10-20 minutes. So, let’s say you have 2 sex sessions in an hour, that’s anywhere between 100-200 calories burned in 60 minutes, just for sex. Screw it all. Go have a sex marathon!
And now for something new to try…
(I did not write this article, but I wish I had!)
YUM It is Lap Limbo time y’all!!!! Get it in bitches!
Your guy sits back in a roomy chair with a pillow placed under his knees to elevate them. Now you straddle him, lower yourself into the triangle of his lap, and lean back so you’re resting against his raised thighs. Bend your knees and put your ankles over his shoulders so they rest on the back of the chair. He grasps your hips as he enters you, and you set the rocking in motion by pushing your feet against the top of the chair as he thrusts by pulling your hips toward him.
The payoff of this racy recliner move starts with pure visual pleasure. With you in his lap, legs open, he’s got an up-close-and-intimate view of you, plus easy access to touch your breasts, your tummy, and between your legs. All that tender stroking will intensify the sensual, super slow buildup brought on by his minimal movements.
Since you’re in full control of the angle and depth of your stud’s penetration in this position, you can aim his penis toward your navel to hit the G-spot. Be his tawdry tour guide and tilt your bod just the right way so he shares the feel-good sensations.
OMFG! I LOVE this one. Even with her tummy being a lil extra, she still has fun doing this one. She just lets go and let it cum… hehehe It is a fun one cause you just throw the head back, titties are bouncing left and right and things are just super duper… HA! He can grab your ass and make you go faster, slower, harder… You control it but he can help the control…. Whew. Mama needs some dick! Who is stepping up to the plate?
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these Sk8 Saturday posts. The video is kind of lame and really long and it’s in 3D, so it looks kind of funky. But, even for all of that, it’s still a super cool video (next Saturday I will show you a better one, though 🙂 I promise)!
You wanna know why it’s super cool? Remember last November when I went to Kansas City, MO on my first sk8venture with Loverman? Well, a friend of mine hooked me up with a video from that weekend and it just so happens that Loverman and I are in it! Sadly, we’re not skating or anything, but we’re still there! We are in the upper right-hand corner at 6:53 (after all the freaking bowling, you would think I was on a bowling adventure or something, lol!). You can see the flash on Loverman’s camera while he’s filming.
Woo hoo!!! Right!?
Just for the record: I don’t like that it’s in 3D. I don’t have 3D glasses and it makes my middle look funky without them. I have on a black skirt that, in 3D, makes it look like I am wearing a crop-top. I am, in fact, wearing a normal-length t-shirt.
