Peace, Love, and Lowriders

http://www.edhat.com

I'm still doing Bikram Yoga, and that means I'm still hanging out with scantily dressed people. Which means I've been spending a lot of time looking at and appraising tattoos of all sizes, colors, and shapes. Did you know that there is a movie coming out soon called "Hot Tub Time Machine"? You can catch the trailer online. I will probably see it, as not only does it star John Cusack, whom I adore, but they also go back in time to the 1980's! Wow! That was so long ago. I was but a wee thing back then. Actually, that's not true. I lived through the 80's as a teenager.

Hot Yoga Mama or Mouth Breather?

http://www.edhat.com

So, do you guys ever read "O", Oprah's magazine? My mom gave me a subscription for Christmas, even though I don't watch her show. Oprah's show, not my mom's. Usually I just flip through it and think to myself, "Why are they always talking about finding the "right kind of jean for your body type"? Because unless you are buying me jeans, I am bored. Anyway. The last few issues featured a two-part article about this woman who did the 60-day Bikram Yoga challenge. And immediately I said, "That's crazy!" But then I thought, well, I'm crazy too - maybe I should try it?

Noel Coward with yoga pants

http://opinion.latimes.com

That's my review, and I'm sticking with it. The play opening next week at the Geffen Playhouse, ''The Female of the Species,'' is a Cowardian drawing-room comedy with a touch of Feydeau, updated and relocated to an upstate New York country house, and centered on Margot Mason, a celebrity feminist intellectual author played pitch-perfectly by Annette Bening. Margot has a touch of feminist pioneer Germaine Greer -- not surprising, because, like Greer, the playwright, Joanna Murray-Smith, is Australian.
