Freaky Saturday

Este sabadrink estuvo curado, fuimos (chona, michelle y su escribidor del dia) despues de una suculenta cena oriental (Gout du Pacifique - in duluth) por unos drinks a un lounge de moda entre la socialité hippiera - people´s potato como le dice Tommy - llamado "Le Divan Orange". Este antrillo es de esos que se ven sucios sin estarlo, con la mayoria del interior del immueble en estado de superuso, la mayoria es de segunda mano y logicamente no existe una consistencia (excepto con la disparidad de estilos, colores y tamaños de estos). Las bebidas son tambien exoticonas y las cervezas son de barril y de microbrasseries (nada mainstream). Yo me tomé un buenisimo "Portotonic" que es la combinación de porto blanco, tonic y limón en un baso chaparro, pero el sabor del porto combina muy bien con estos (No se si se pudiera hacer con sambuca...) y me quedé con ganas de más.

Ahora, la música... Mmmm... ese es otro boleto. La musica de fondo cuando llegamos era nada raro, alternativon, indie, por lo general dentro del genero del rock. Redepente que se escucha a lo lejos unos tambores y saxos, tipo batucada, y entraron al lugar poniendo a los hippies a bailar. Resultaron ser los invitados del dia - Mr. Something Something - de toronto. Siguiento el hilo de su batucada, estuvieron tocando un "freaky" afrobeat (asi se autodefinieron) bastante muevebotes y alegrona la tonada. Las percusiones, bajo, saxos (2 sax- alto y bajo), guitarra y voz del grupo movieron muy bien a las personas ahi reunidas, además de la energia que portaba el frontman (tipo brody-mayer style).

Aunque por ahi habia la perdida camisa de tie-dye y uno que otro greñudo rastafari la media portaba saco oscuro, jeans, tshirt de color contrastante, bufanda y tenis blancos... parecian uniformados (y no se por que yo no me puse mi saco y saque sweater) por lo menos ya se que no soy el unico ridiculo caminando asi por las calles de montreal.

Anyways mes amies, saludos a todos, y necesito feedback de las postales! Andenle! Escriban!

Explain the brody-mayer style.
U mean Adam Brody/John Mayer a.k.a the man of my dreams?
Dark messy out-off-bed hair, tall, crashing personality, tender, big brown eyes, skinny butt almost anorexic, party animal, an ironist, geeky looks, unusual nose and great sense of humour??
Tell him u got a cute friend in Maza!

I never realised how important a good bed was until I got a bad back�.
Over 1,400 members of BackCare, the national organisation for healthy backs, responded to our Back Your Bed survey - the first of its kind to explore the views on beds of those who suffer from bad backs and the experts who treat them.
SUMMARY OF THE BACK YOUR BED SURVEY RESULTS
Buying a good bed is one of the most important purchases you can make when it comes to back pain relief. Nine out of 10 say their bed is more important to them since they developed back pain; 98% agreed that a good, supportive bed could help a bad back. 82% of experts felt that the right bed could help prevent back pain.
"If you cannot rest properly and sleep well, this hinders recovery from back problems."
A firm, supportive bed, not a hard one, can do wonders to ease and even prevent bad backs. Only 22% of sufferers had bought a bed classed as �orthopaedic�; while 28% describe their bed support as �medium�. Only 6% of experts would recommend an orthopaedic bed to patients.

Three quarters would be prepared to spend more than �500 on a new bed: compared with just 36% of the �normal� population. Nearly one in 10 would pay more than �2,000 for a new bed to get the comfort and relief they need.
Back pain sufferers are twice as likely as the rest of the population to own a new bed - 50% have beds that are less than five years old compared to the national average of 24%.
88% are satisfied with their choice � but 16% said they would get a better quality one next time; while 9% would opt for something firmer; 5% said they would choose a softer bed and 4% wanted a bigger one.

Sufferers are three times more likely to replace their beds when they no longer feel comfortable (65% compared with just 20%).
31% own a king size bed compared with 11% generally. Separate mattresses zipped together are also popular with couples whose support needs differ or who are easily disturbed by their partner's movements. top
