Yep - there's something stangely alluring about lean girls doing manly weights, like squats or cleans. Or is that just me?

Not just you my friend.

I've now found a different class that isn't hot, but is hot, if you catch my drift.

 

And maybe it's just me, but during yoga I always feel like I'm a whisker away from audibly breaking wind, which is difficult when you're the only guy and there is no handy dog to blame.

I guess I just don't get the point of hot yoga. Yeah it gets your heart rate up, but it doesn't do anything for metabolic rate. Plus yoga is more for my rest/recovery day(s), adding heat would defeat the purpose for me. I suppose if it's one of your (not you personally) only workouts which will elevate heart rate, it's something, but it still won't do much for your metabolic rate. I'm with you, I'll stick to normal temp yoga, where I stay in the back and struggle with my flexibility while enjoying the view.

Part of it is luck of the draw. Part of it is knowing that, at least around here, beauties stay beauties by working out very hard all the time. All I had to do is find the most physically demanding studio in the land before being surrounded by "Ds driving Cs." But to be fair, it's not normal yoga. They integrate cardio and light dumbbells. Took weeks to not feel the urge to pass out. Gentlemen arrive early to snag the coveted back row, though the reason for this trend has never been discussed. Sun is to your back around 5:30. It's a good thing.

 

And now to try to keep on track here.

 

 

And my assistant just dropped this off on my desk! @mimo how's your haul from Catalog Day?

Awesome - a catalogue for weekend perusal. And I'm going to put my Speedy on when I get home.

Anybody ever do any of the Madison Ave Watch Week events in NYC?  It's coming up but almost all of the events seem to be during business hours....

Funnily enough, that was the first one to arrive with me too.  Followed immediately by Roger Dubuis.  I then disappeared out of town for a week, so I'll see what's in the office and check my missed calls, and let you know!

There was a early version of a automatic watch made durin.g the 20's that was referred as a rollie. I cannot recall the name of the watch, but it used a rolling movement to wind the watch. The watch used the movement of the watch in the case as a method to wind. I have references but they are currently in storeage. The watch rolled back and forth on small wheels as a winding method. They were not very successful. They proceeded the Harward watches. There was a recent debate on the use of Rollie to describe Rolex. It was determined that the use of Rollie did not refer to Rolex. BTW enjoy your watches. PS I am a purist in terms.

Well, regardless of its use in the past, today Rollie means Rolex. 'nuff said.
post #42762 of 48312

Word.

I got the Rollie on my arm, and I'm pouring Chandon, and I roll the best weed cause I got it going on.

I mean if Snoop used it, it's good enough for me.

Sadly no, my friend. Have been on vacation for more than a week and brought only my 5711.

I usually just travel with one watch to spare myself having to leave stuff in the hotel safe etc and in the past it's worked just fine. But these days if I travel for over two or three days I kind of want another watch to vary it up a bit. I must be getting old or something.
