Today Was a Good Day
As I sit bottomless watching SNL tonight, I am recounting what a good day I had today. I started slowly, which no matter how fast I want to get things started, my free days become Me days. I pulled Mary J. Blige's Mary album from Grooveshark and remembered why I used to love it so. The lyrics, message and songs are impeccable. When I was finally able to pull myself together, I headed over to my very first real salsa dance lesson. We learned the basic steps and some partner movement. I really love the studio, Latin Street Dance and my teacher (the owner, Lisa 'La Bariqua). Plus, your girl wasn't half bad. After class I headed over to get my hair done. Sidebar: why does everyone think if your hair is natural, you don't go to the salon. As my hairdresser says, 'natural doesn't mean neglected'. I love my hair salon. I was in there for 4 hours, but wasn't even mad, I enjoyed myself. From there I picked up sushi from Shinju Sushi in Hyde Park. I came home, ate my sushi and washed it down with Izze sparkling blackberry juice...yes, it was a good day.
