while at the grocery store on friday i learned that uma thurman, jessica simpson, and a bunch of other famous women have cellulite! i feel so much better now that i know i'm not the only human being around here. i guess famous people aren't androids after all! i bet their poop smells bad.

yesterday we walked all over our neighborhood and to the bowling alley where i proceeded to beat bryan aka fred flintstone 3 times (out of 3 times). 90, 115, and 93 aren't super great scores but it's been a while.
here's some of what we saw on the way there and back..

the windows were really steamy because they were making lots of cakes.

you name it, we got it.

today i went to bj's with christine and you don't even know the strength it took to not buy the 3 pound drum of Jax. i have been pretty much out of commission for the rest of the day due to the fact that i'm practically hemorrhaging. good thing i'm seeing the lady doctor this week.

i'm really looking forward to wearing pants tomorrow. no, really. i think i'm over it.
no more being a hobo.

"Serenity of mind, good heartedness, silence, self-control, purity of nature these are called the 'mental austerity'." (The Gita, Chapter XVII, 16)

The above verses show us the ways in which we can inculcate and assimilate these fundamental eternal values. Here're eight things we can do diligently to emerge as better persons:

1. Worship the God of your heart.
2. Maintain external cleanliness Physical and Environmental.
3. Practice straightforwardness in dealing with others.
4. Live a life of self-control with respect to all your sense enjoyments.
5. Avoid acts of injuring others from your emotional and intellectual realms.
6. Speak only to express agreeable ideas of permanent value. When the truth is disagreeable to others, maintain a discreet silence.
7. Maintain pure and serene motives.
8. Maintain a relationship of understanding, tolerance and love with the world at large.
