Fun little Book Quiz

My results:

You’re Siddhartha
by Hermann Hesse

You simply don’t know what to believe, but you’re willing to try anything once. Western values, Eastern values, hedonism and minimalism, you’ve spent some time in every camp. But you still don’t have any idea what camp you belong in. This makes you an individualist of the highest order, but also really lonely. It’s time to chill out under a tree. And realize that at least you believe in ferries.

The Cop laughed when he saw my results. “How many copies of that book do you have?” he asked. Um, three, I think. Maybe four. Gathered over many years.

You’re Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
by Mark Twain

With an affinity for floating down the river, you see things in black and white. The world is strange and new to you and the more you learn about it, the less it makes sense. You probably speak with an accent and others have a hard time understanding you and an even harder time taking you seriously. Nevertheless, your adventurous spirit is admirable. You really like straw hats.

The Cop loves that book. Not sure about the straw hat business, but he does like to affect accents for amusement.

Got up and did a backbend practice in celebration of my focus for 2007. I have a little routine worked out and will see if it helps me understand backbending a little more, if it helps open up my back. I’m thinking I’ll try 4-5 days of regular practice, and 2-3 days of the backbend-centric practice per week. We’ll see how that goes. I can tell you for sure that the psoas-stretching portion of the practice totally rocked.

The backbending focus of late (started when I began practicing the first few poses of second series) has resulted in some lower back pain. Not injury pain; just a dull ache. I’m assuming (correctly, I hope) that this is normal when one starts working more into the back. It’s a little frightening to me, because I come from a family of people with lower back issues. I’ve always felt like I escaped the family fate because I am active, but as I work with the new poses I’m realizing that there’s a secret assumption in me that perceives my lower back as a weak link. An interesting glimpse into internalized belief systems…

I am also forming a new belief system about the plumbers. I believe they now live here and will stay forever. Yup. Seriously. They’re still working. All day yesterday and back at it again this morning. We were supposed to be finished on Thursday. Then Friday. Well, you can understand why I imagine they’ll be here forever. All I want is for them to finish and leave so I can clean this poor, destroyed house.

Happy new year, everyone.
