But can they POUNCE!?
Well, they haven't had much opportunity to practice on those bits, but I wouldn't put it past them!
I sent Mark a PM. I'll bet this happens to him all of the time. Can you imagine trying to pass yourself off as Mark Sisson? What happens when women actually meet up with him and he isn't Mark?
Only just caught this thread. Oh my it has taken off! Literally! I used to sleep naked, but since kids wear something or other, but now (since it's freezing here in the UK) I'm in PJ's. but I never wear underwear with them ..... Why would you? I'm in the 'fresh air to your bits brigade'!
Okay, I know I'm going against the grain here but I'm reverting. Last night I didn't have any hot flashes, but I did wake up profoundly uncomfortable and braved the chilly night air to put on a stretchy bra. I felt very damp and nasty down there, but I toughed it out without undies. I had turned the heat way down when I went to bed to try to save some money, but towards the morning I was soooooo cold, even buried under several blankets. I'm thinking...it ain't broke...don't fix it. If I were having UTIs or something it would be worth persisting, but I've never had one in my whole life. And for those inquiring minds that want to know, I am a 36D and still reasonably perky. Actually quite a bit perkier since going primal and taking up regular swimming.
Got up and fired up the woodstove! Brrrrrr. It's not really that cold, I just got a chill and can't seem to get warm. And I'm pretty hungry. Methinks eating will help warm me up!
Update on my feet: (sorry, not nearly as interesting) I have a long history of foot problems, most recently years of severe plantar fascitis. The past year has been great for my feet, and I am really interested in making them as healthy and strong as I can. I've been walking barefoot every day, mostly indoors but the last couple of weeks outside as well. I took the plunge and purchased a pricey pair of Merrill Pace Gloves, a minimal shoe that has rapidly become my favorite. These have the advantage of being okay for work and also washable. Also they look very durable, there really isn't much that can wear out on the shoe. I also got a pair of ballet slippers, very inexpensive. The reason I got them is because they have a leather sole, allowing for contact with the earth, and are coincidentally fun to wear indoors also. They are pretty much the original minimal shoe, just a very thin leather sole, no padding or support whatsoever. Great for exercising, shovelgloving, anything. Cost: a whopping $13. I've gone slowly on this. Started walking a barefoot for a few minutes a day and then putting my huge Danskos back on my feet. And had several setbacks. One night I walked around barefoot for roughly twice as long as I had been, and had to call out the next night because my feet were screaming. But now I seem to be well on the road to foot health. The question now is, what am I going to do with all my clunky foot casts, i.e. stiff supportive shoes?
Give back to the community and give 'em to a shelter or thrift store.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

Had a good swim. Have I mentioned my water yoga? Yes, I am developing a yoga program to be done in the pool. It's really fun and easy. I do tree pose in water up to my neck. It is interesting because the water supports you and buffets you around at the same time. Obviously you can't fall over. But the currents push you here and there and you have to adjust. Got to be good. Warrior position in the water is also very good. Downward dog is not possible, but I worked out something kind of similar against the side of the pool. A kind of cat stretch and all six flexions of the spine. Doing these in water is very relaxing and easy.
Bought a package of organic grape tomatoes and can't stop eating them. Also an eggplant.
