Oh My Achy Breaky Knees
My achy breaky knees, my achy breaky knees [sung to the tune of Billy Ray Cyrus’ Achy Breaky Heart. I’ve only watched FIFTEEN minutes of Hannah Montana on Disney Channel -I was channel surfing and decided to see what the fuss was about- and I must say : NEVER again. That Hannah Montana character is RUDE! Or am I a prude?]
For the past 2 days, getting into supta vajrasana was a real pain in the ass knees. Never had problems with the posture, could keep my knees together [“never come off the floor”], go down all the way, arms over head and arch chest up like a “perfect human bridge”. Oh but yesterday and the day before, Oh. My. Lord / Lady of. PAIN! In fact, lately, ANY posture with a knee bit [awkward – bouncing included] would just drive me INSANE. About as bat shit crazy as a rabid monkey could be. But as they say, “Pain kills the pain”, so in other words, taking it sloooooooow and eeeaasssy as I ease my withered and battered body gingerly onto the mat. Locking the knee has also become a chore for me as I can’t lock the knee without a thunderous CRACK emanating through the room.Sounds like Zeus is angry! *crack!
Righto, enough ranting about the state of my knees [which is, I think, about as interesting as stale bread to anyone reading this]. Made a trip down to the local grocery store to get ingredients for …. GUINNESS CHOCOLATE CAKE. Oh yes, a recipe that combines my two favouritest things – Guinness Stout and Chocolate. Whee! I know, I know, a lady shouldn’t be drinking Stout, but as they say, Guinness is Good for You! Plus it has loads of malt and iron, something that my body has been craving for lately. The Missus was right, it came out PRETTY damn strong! That and I didn’t want to waste any of smooth velvety goodness so I er, was liberal with the amount of Stout I added. 😀
p.s : No pictures of the cake. It’s half gone!
