Pimp Me Out

Yesterday I finally went to my mailbox which, can I just say, I hate and yes, it's because I hate a bill and all of the bloody structure and compliance associated with it. "Pay me, pay me," they say. And it just makes me want to slap a bitch. Freedom is my thing ... I'm a bird baby, I need to fly!

Why did I start with the mailbox? Oh yeah, right, so the thing is my "Eventing" magazine was in the box and I read it - not much has changed there ... keep trying and practicing and you'll get better. Horses are still horses. Young riders are still rich. You get the picture.

But what was included was the big schedule and rundown for the Annual Meeting which is being held in New Orleans December 11-14 and guess whose name was included in the roster? Yours truly, that's who. I'm doing a presentation on pilates and specifically addressing posture and how it affects the equestrian. I find this really fascinating. I haven't done any hardcore research or laboratory studies because I don't even know where to begin with that, so am preparing my presentation for a more general assessment and "ease of implementation." I'm excited about it.

But what matters to me most, of course, and not surprisingly to anyone I'm sure, is what I'm going to wear. I'm just going to address the simple honest truth here. My default concern is always the Robby In My Head who must be up there walking the talk. And bitch need to look fresh!

I'm obviously not going to wear what Joseph H. Pilates is wearing in this pic (but don't think for a second if I didn't have my little Ethiopia belly I wouldn't) so I need to get cracking on the ensemble. I have a few ideas percolating, but am all over the board with it. I need to edit and, quite frankly, how hard is it to slap on some workout shorts/pants a tank top and a zip-up hoodie? Not hard. But they have to be the RIGHT workout shorts/pants, tank top, and zip-up hoodie. This of course says American Apparel to me. Although I really want something from Prana. But Prana is s'spensive and I ain't sayin' I'm a gold digga, I'm just sayin' I'm a broke wigga.

I am, of course, open to suggestions. Pimp me out.

Don't even get me started on my Prana collection - I've got at least 5 pairs of yoga-ish pants plus several tops.
