yogini - female practitioner of yoga
There once was a small yogini called YoginiGeek who attended a workshop to learn more about yoga so she can bring calmness and serenity to Perspective Cat who tends to be somewhat well...er...psycho. At the workshop, YoginiGeek was assigned to a group of larger yoginis to act out a story. This group was tasked with acting drunk and silly (not a stretch for YoginiGeek) to demonstrate what can happen to people when they are not in control.
One of the other yoginis on the team was obviously better at acting drunk and silly than YoginiGeek and was very energetic with her interpretation. The excitement of being "on stage" and being a star may have been too much for YoginiGeek's co-star as she made a large swooping movement with her arm, causing YoginiGeek to break into sudden flight and land on the floor several feet away.
The crowd grew quiet and YoginiGeek was soon surrounded by concerned faces. YoginiGeek starts to laugh uncontrollably. The crowd relaxes. YoginiGeek is on the floor but is breathing and all limbs are intact.
The crowd sighs, yawns in boredom, and awaits the next group's antics.
Now for a little rant:
Don't you just love it when you've taken your car in for service and you get a call the next day urging you to answer "excellent" to the survey that will be given to you later because this is how service advisers are evaluated?
I don't love it.
Earlier this week, "Elle" calls and leaves a message for Hubby asking if the service was "excellent" and to call her back if it wasn't. "Elle" sounds like a pre-teen girl that should probably be chasing the Jonas Brothers.
Being the silly geek I am, I had to tease Hubby about his phone message.
So Hubby, did "Elle" service you OK?
What services did she actually perform?
Why was I not invited?
Wasn't your service advisor a guy? Was his service good? Is he cute?
Give me a break. I run away screaming from surveys. I had enough of that in the corporate world. We would take the survey and then have to form little "teams" to "fix" the problems that came up on the survey. What an EFFING waste of time! And a survey being part of your performance evaluation and being urged to answer "excellent"? Uh, no. Sorry. I don't play that game.
The weather outside is warm. It's spring break around here and everyone who hasn't driven a car all winter is now out driving their car as I'm trying to commute home. On a positive note, at least Real Cat is worn out and ready to sleep when I get home. He's been spending these nice days outside, looking for rodents to torture and hiding from the Zombies.
