It's raining cats and dogs right now, so I am putting off going to work. I've had a nice but really busy week that's left me somewhat exhausted. I started my two yoga classes this week and they were both really nice. One of the teachers is really hard core - not taking it easy on us at all and boy did I pay the price on Tues/Wed! My other yoga teacher is more mellow, telling us not to hurt ourselves and not to push too hard. I think the first class will be great for getting my body in shape and increasing my strength and the second class will be great for my psyche. I need to relax and let it all go most weeks. Slow it down some, know what I mean?
The other night, Alex and I had our "Valentine's Date". Since there is so much hype surrounding the day, we try to celebrate it early or later, mostly because it's stupid to listen to Hallmark to tell you when to go on a date with your loved ones. Anyways, we went to dinner at this kitchy little "Mexican" place called El Vez. Dinner was delicious and the margaritas were actually really tasty. We then went to take in Avenue Q, the Broadway show that is here in Philly for a week or two. It was fantastic! If you haven't seen it, it's the story of Princeton, a recent college graduate. He's trying to find his "purpose" in life and he moves into an apartment on Ave Q, meets a lot of great friends and falls in love in the process. However, Princeton is a puppet! Which is great. The whole show is kinda a throwback to Sesame Street when we were kids, and included great catchy tunes such as "The Internet is for Porn", "It Sucks to Be Me", "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist", "If You Were Gay" and "My Girlfriend, Who Lives in Canada". Its really a classic show and I highly recommend it!
