non-traditional sports

Chaps, history is going to be made today.
1)I am collecting my rug at lunchtime; (tick tock tick tock)
2)I am starting pilates

Both are quite extraordinary updates, you understand. For one, rap talk sorts out late-rug-incompetence a-ok to the muthafucking-a. That cannot be denied.
Secondly, Peas is doing exercise.

Pottery class would've come sooner, trust me.

But it's exercise that is going to tone my ass like a peach. I don't know what all this 'pilates' talk is all about. It's like the new tai chi, or whatever, except it apparently tones like a motherbitch. And you get to wear things that aren't made out of spandex in order to do it.

That's always a plus.

Pilates is the new buzz word of exercise, and I'm going to find out what the fuss is all about – first class this evening.
My female colleague suggested we do it, so why the hell not? Two months until Greece, and it'll be nice to look 100 degrees in the shade in my new bikini.
Apparently it hurts, hard. My muscles are going to ache. But fuck it, I'll give it a smash, why not?

Saw Dove for dinner last night. And it's unanimous – the worst presents we could give each other are:
1) A faberge Ostrich egg
2) A gem tree (holy god)
3) An engraved elephant's tusk
4) A gift voucher from Tile Warehouse

Hey, maybe you'd agree. Although a Lazy Susan, as dope and ridiculous as it may be, is a good one. Because you want to say, 'Oh, just put the jam on Susan and spin her,' when people ask you to pass breakfast confectionery spreads.

On an amusing note, my Irish friend found something yesterday that 'made her choke on her cornflakes.' She emailed me a link to this dude, the one on the left. He's the same oke who licked my face in a Dublin bar, and that I almost got fresh with. (If it wasn't for the fact he licked faces, I mean...)

An Olympian. Not a rower, not a runner, not a pole vaulter, he's a boxer. And he's at the Olympics.
Oh my God.
Oh man. Oh man that is funny.

Betenoir said...

Peas on Toast said...

Bete - seriously? Is it that hardcore? I mean I'm already nervous. Scared I'm going to pull something/break something/snap something osserus (sp?) in my body....

Peas on Toast said...

Bete - dude! Is 'Lates the cool kids lingo for Pilates? ;)

Jam said...

Pilates is tough. Managed to do it for 6 months - the other thing it gives you is bootiful posture eventually too....
Rugginess needs a name - it's that spethal. As long is as it's not bland...

Peas on Toast said...

Jam - HAHAHAHAHAH! That Bland talk yesterday, honestly, a flipping life saver babe. Bland = dope :)

And GREAT about the posture news too. I had no idea pilates did that - and I constantly have to watch my posture. So this is good news!

Hey Peas, Pilates is great. I've been doing it for a while now. If you are struggling in the class you can request individual sessions. I did a few individual classes to master the basics and now I cope just fine.
Enjoy!

Peas on Toast said...

Benny - oh brilliant! It concerns me that this is an art one has to master, Ant said the same thing that you did as well. Oh well a new chellenge it shall be - I'm excited!

Ches said...

Peas on Toast said...

Fuck off Ches. :)

No he's not the one who looks like he's barking at and about to eat, the camera, ok. :)

On the LEFT china. ha ha ha

Sunrise said...

Pilates is shite, I had to bend, and lie down on stupid pulley systems that look like The Dreaded RACK for the stone ages. William Wallace would not approve...

Peas on Toast said...

Sunrise...hold the phone! Pulley systems? This sounds awfully kinky to me! :)

Sunrise said...

Kinky, MY STINKA, I am sure Pilates has its roots in a sect of medievil torture! A sect lurkes near every gym, its what Mugabe uses to get all his votes!

Peas on Toast said...

Sunrise - that's a little terrifying...

Torture? OK, I'm not really into that kind of kinky shit...


HOWEVER, GUESS WHO IS THE PROUD OWNER OF A BRAND SPANKING NEW AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS RUG!

(Guess!) ;)

Ches said...

SKIPPY??????

Peas on Toast said...

Skippy?!

Don't make me say it...don't make me...ok I'll say it:

YO MOMMA'S GOT A PEG LEG WITH A KICK STAND, YO.

Mel said...

I hope you have a fireplace to lay that brand new mat in front of! ;-)

Mel said...

I meant rug... :-D

Peas on Toast said...

Mel - sadly, negative. However, I have an old school TV screen and a ...poof. You know, the type that's filled with sand and you can sit on...

Peas on Toast said...

Thanks about the rug! I hope we have a very long beautiful life together :)

The Blonde Blogshell said...
