Friday Photo Fun #25

Instead of blogging I have been giving into my hippie side and playing around with painting henna tattoos on my kids...I guess this is what comes of being born in the Sixties, albeit the tail-end of it (yes, I am that old).  And while I was at it, I turned myself into a redhead, because, what the heck, why not?

The Professor is pretty happy about it...he thought I really was a redhead when we met, and I think he's still secretly disappointed that it turned out to be just an illusion.

I've even contemplated taking up yoga....because, well that's what hippies do, right?  And it might be fun to try something new.  Then again, that may taking things just a bit too far...I'm not really sure that I'm ready to hang up my Nikes and exchange my step classes for rounds of chanting "Om".  Besides, that's just one step away from bra burning and running off to join a commune, and I don't think the Professor would be any too happy about that.  But wouldn't it be cool to be able to do this?

Okay, okay, I know you're all probably thinking, "Enough with all the hippy crap, get on with the important stuff, why don't you!"  So, here's this week's mystery object:

You know what to do...guess what it is and leave a comment.  If you win, I'll link my big red button to your blog for a whole week.  And if you don't have a blog, let me know what page you'd like me to link to, and I will (except for certain obvious exceptions, such as porn, violence, or racism).  Oh, and wait, there's more...everyone who participates by leaving a comment, gets to be in my next linky-love post, so say something...anything!

And with that, I'm off to practice my crane pose.  If I'm not back here by Monday, that means I've probably fallen on my face and broken my nose...

Peace out.


  1. For some reason my first thought was some sort of torture device... then my mind went to kitchen utensil... which in my world, kitchen utensil = torture device.... soooo... I'm gonna say it's some sort of mixer...

    good luck w/ the yoga!

  2. One of those flour sieves with the arm that rotates around. Maybe?

  3. I vote kitchen utensil, too! What excatly, I don't know...

  4. its that thing you use to puree tomatoes

  5. Ayy ya me duele la espalda de sólo ver a esa chica...

    En cuanto a la adivinanza le cedo el paso a Eric ... si claro, no tenía ni idea ;)

  6. I think Erik is right... again!

  7. I have no idea what the mystery object is but I do have an opinion about yoga. :) It is more physically challenging than it looks ... it takes a lot of strength to hold your body still in some of the poses. It would be a great complement to your aerobics and it's very relaxing.

    Wow, those are some serious backbends, expecially how she goes from locust to wheel. I have actually been trying to do more advanced poses, but it is really difficult. With all of the dance you have done in your life and with how thin you are I bet you could do some advanced stuff pretty quickly.

  9. I defer to Erik. He always makes me think, DUH! But of course!

  10. UnSoccerMom: Yes, kitchen=torture to me too, so I can relate!

    Erik: You are once again the winner...congrats!

    Bud: Oh, I know that yoga is physically challenging. We actually do a lot of yoga poses at the end of our classes when we stretch. I wouldn't mind trying power yoga,or something similar, which is mostly physical and not so mystical...I can't quite get with the meditation part, but the rest looks pretty interesting.

    Michelle: I don't know, some of it looks seriously difficult, but it could be fun to try. :)

    Thanks for playing everyone!

  11. Hippie stuff rocks! XD You totally have to do that again...Oh, by the way, I think I'd like to change my blog name...Catgirl is a bit..."anticuado"...
