“Heads Up! Saw an advance copy of Sadie’s upcoming new book “21 Days to a Yoga Body” at [some awesome, but deleted, bookstore] this evening. Due to be published in Sept 2013. If you’ve got a hankerin’ you can probably still find this little number on the bottom right hand of the advance shelves.
It continued thusly….
On the cover photograph, [Nardini] looks like an incredibly lean lizard-like character with an impossibly long body. Nature or photoshop? Couldn’t bring myself to violate the virgin binding—so she’s all yours Baba! Let me know, ahhh, how it goes……”
Needless to say, the next day we were at the bookstore bright and early. Sure enough the tome of tonus was right where the tipster had said. I reached for it. It snuggled up into my palms, and the two of us became one. The advanced copy of Sadie Nardini’s book was mine, and I felt like a kid in a
crackhouse candy store.
Now, one might think we would have rushed back to BabaHQ directly, fired up the steam-powered word generator two-thousand, while our army of trained chimps laved away on a full review that we would take full credit for. But, hark! A curious passage on pg. 220 caught our attention and forced us to shelve the article until the book was officially published, lest we make a big deal about something the author might in turn want to edit out before the book hit the shelves.
Hmmm…. A website? A post? Photos with arrows? Junk in the trunk?
Could it be? Had we, the tiny Babarazzinis, along with our show-stopping piece, “Sadie Nardini Weight Loss??? /// We Agree,” gotten a veiled reference in Sadie’s sure-to-be bestseller?
Obviously, it’s anyone’s guess if this really is a reference to our illustrious remarks or not. Commercial Yoga Culture isn’t too interested in sourcing their material or promoting critics, so I guess we’ll never know. But, what I do know is that our potential mention comes on Day-16, which, after you complete a couple of cobras, camels, and child’s poses will yield you a delicious LOBSTER TACO! Whoop whoop!
That’s right. At the end of your daily slim-down, Sadie provides a number of (totally delicious-sounding) recipes of including sweet, veg, meat, and alcoholic varieties. [Cue gasping here]. Now, I’ve never actually had a lobster taco, but, based on the way in which people have mini-orgasms with even the mention of lobster, I imagine it’s rather tasty. In NYC we have something called a “lobster roll,” which people seem to be rather excited about. But, alas, I have also never had one of these. I’m not even sure if the “roll” is referring to a hoagie roll or a wrap (as in “rolled up”). Or, maybe it’s more like a sushi roll?Nope. It’s a hoagie roll.
Anyway…. Sun Salutations. Cobra. Kneeling. Camel. Child’s Pose. Lobster Tacos.
Ladies and gentlegerms, I give you…”yoga.” Have it your way!
NOTE: It’s a shame that Sadie feels we were pointing out her “flaws,” rather than appreciating the commentary we were making regarding body objectification. Truth be told, we find the Nard Dog to be quite perfect in whatever form her ‘lil ‘lil ‘lil body takes. That goes for all o’ y’all.
