When your kitchen starts to be a challenge cooking isn't fun anymore.
Don't lose the love!
There are a ton of simple tricks that you can use to keep your kitchen easy to navigate. This is one of my favorites. This is an old file organizer that my boyfriend found. It was just going to be tossed away! He brought it home, and I put it to use. Infact I received a double high five for not just using it to file my paperwork lol!
Any file organizer will work for your various pans. I bet you can even score a free one if you keep an eye out. You'd be surprised at what you find when you're looking for it.
Don't mind the out of place boxes on the floor, they are the bunny barrier so I can keep an eye on her while she's out hoppin around ;) but still get beautiful sunlight in my kitchen!
I DON'T HAVE ANY AFFILIATION WITH THIS PRODUCT. I'm not a blogger that get's paid if you click on the link, I don't get free gifts from anyone. I just love you guys and think you should know as much as possible. It's your life, you decide how to live it.
One with the show:
My bestie doesn't have toenails. She hasn't since I met her a decade (maybe more but I'm not telling;) ago. She lost them due to repetitive kicking. Apparently in Muay Thai there's a thing called iron body where you kill off the nerve endings by strikes. Like kicking a heavy bag with your foot until you lose your toenails. She has no feeling in her shins, feet, and part of her forearms from knife training. This is great in a fight, if someone hits you it doesn't matter so much.
All I'm going to say is if you can have someone like her for a best friend I really recommend it. Just knowing if the zombie apocalypse happens we're a complete team is great! I cook, she defends. Done.
Any way... She started drinking this stuff around 6 months ago. First one toenail started to grow back in. Now the second toenail is 1/2 grown in. She's certainly upgraded her diet, no 'box o meals' like the Trader Joes frozen bag meals, she's cooking more, but she hasn't gotten nearly as crazy as me. She loves her cheese and bread and I'm certainly not going to argue with her! So without going Gluten Free, or Vegan, or Paleo, or any other newfangled diet she's regrowing toenails. After 10+ years.
So you've got to understand my willingness to try something that has that kind of effect.
I've got weak teeth. You may have picked that up in my rant about spending thousands of dollars on one tooth over and over again. If not I'll paraphrase. I get holes in my teeth. They either crack the tooth or get a cavity in them. I brush 2x or more a day and I floss every night. I do my best to eat a rich diet full of all those bone building veggies. This has been a problem my whole life. So I'm drinking the mud. I'm hoping that in the next year I can go to the dentist and be whole free. I'll let you know how it goes!
This stuff doesn't taste bad, but it's gritty, not going to lie to you. They make capsules and I get why. However, I've drank some pretty weird stuff in my day and this at least doesn't taste bad!
The concept is that clay absorbs toxins deep in your intestine. It's going to clean you out for sure, but not in the way high fiber cleanses do. It's gentle, so you can actually drink it everyday, getting the benefits of the minerals and a daily detox that so important in our polluted lives. It's alkalizing as well, most of us are eating an acidic diet, along with living acidic lives that are very hard on our bodies. This helps to counterbalance all that. Logically this mud makes perfect sense to me, but I hate having to take supplements. When I saw her toenails I knew it was time to try it.
It's full of minerals that your body just doesn't get. 57 Essential Minerals says the packaging. I understand that back in the day before we sterilized our living environments we ate dirt. Our veggies had dirt on them still and we used to eat a ton of veggies. That was a reliable source of B12 for our ancestors. Even in times when man couldn't get to an animal source he still got B vitamins from the veggies. That's actually why animal products we eat have B vitamins. They don't wash their veggies.
I'm willing to believe we don't get all the minerals our body needs for maximum awesomeness. This is the site I bought from: http://www.kanwaminerals.com/detox/detox-diet/Energy-Detox-Package
I ordered this package, and they sent a little free gift along with it! I do love a free gift!
She reported a big boost in her energy levels. She used to be a 2 pot of coffee a day girl. Now she doesn't even finish a cup. I'm not a big caffeine drinker, frankly it cracks me out. But who doesn't want an energy boost?! Keep an eye out, as I'll be updating you here on how it goes.
Have you tried this mud before? Are you interested? Let me know your thoughts!
Life Hurls Lemons at My Head: Part 3
So in part one
I spoke of loneliness , in part two
I told you my money drama. In part three I'd like to talk about HOME.
I'm sure after part one you get the idea that home is very important to me. I moved from NYC to San Diego in 2008. In 2 years I moved 7 times. One of those moves was to Colorado. Yep. I finally landed in LA and have been in this particular apt for 3 years.
I'd like to preface this with the fact that my ex is an incredible person. I just couldn't live with the anxiety, nor with the fact that I came second. In any relationship there is two sides and no one leave faultless.
I'm explaining the downs in my life so that when we get to the ups you know where I started from.
When my ex and I moved here we both were worn down from a ton of moving. We decided to make this space a home. I feng shui-ed the place and picked colors based on our ayurvedic doshas. I bought high quality earth friendly paint. The whole apt got painted. To the point that we agreed we're never getting our deposit back. Because hell no we aren't painting this back!
I wanted a home. I thought having a home would help both of us. The problem was when I came home there was still this moment of anxiety. I didn't know what was waiting for me on the other side of that door. Would my significant other be drunk? Have taken some prescribed pill? Be alive?
I learned how to break into every room of each apt we lived in. I would come home to find a door locked and be terrified that this was the day I would have to call 911.
After we broke up I was on my own for a year, at the end of that year I took in a friend who needed to get out of a bad situation. What I didn't see in my loneliness was that he was also an alcoholic. I really wanted someone I could come home and hang out with. I thought that having a living room room mate would be fine.
This was supposed to be a 3 maybe 4 month situation. I know what you're all thinking. You're right. It turned out to be 10 months. He turned out to be drunk for most of it. He also spent a lot of time disrespecting me.
At one point in those 10 months I began dating again. I began dating someone specific. My drunk living room roommate got drunk a number of times and told my boyfriend a bunch of mean things ( I won't go into it but suffice to say I was really upset ). He also spread a rumor about my boyfriend to most of the locals. Fortunately everyone knows better. After setting off the fire alarm at 5am (cooking something on the stove, burning one of my good pots black and passed out on the couch sleeping thru all the smoke and alarms) then never apologizing for it. I told him it was time to go. It took another month and a half. (During which he drank a beer that doesn't exist anymore that I had bought for a special occasion and never said a word about it, just hid the empty bottle) -ok there was a little ranting there, sorry.
Most of the time I felt just like I did with my ex. A ton of anxiety when I put the key in the lock. Terrified of what was on the other side of the door. To my own home.
I couldn't live like that anymore. I learned a few things
1. Don't let loneliness cloud your judgement
2. "They" are right. The couch guy will just stay.
3. People who drink or pop pills to the point of blacking out have a very different outlook on your relationship. They don't remember waking up at 5 am to the fire alarm terrified. They don't remember having to break into a room to check and see if they are still breathing terrified that today is the day they aren't. They don't remember having to clean up the mess, the fear, the anxiety or stress that you went thru every single day. They remember the good times and that's about it.
and Most Importantly:---You should never have anxiety about entering your home---
I guess I should clear up something. I'm bringing this all up to show you that everyone comes from somewhere. That living thru anything is what makes you you. I'm exposing my hurt, and struggle in these series so that you can understand when I share with you later how things have changed. Why would you take advice from me when I don't know the first thing about your situation?
The lemons I'm bringing up take place over a course of a few years, some aren't very recent. The further we get down this road of exposure the more recent the lemons. Tho with life things tend to overlap and re occur. For instance. Money.
I'm sure you have all dealt with money issues. I don't know anyone who hasn't or isn't currently. There are a few people I've met to happen to really like their job and it just so happens to be something at a company they got into right after college. They will never leave and will always have a comfy life. I fully admit to envy. If the Catholics are right and I end up in hell it will be for the sin of envy.
I work on this just like everyone works on something. I know that I have lived a life worth envying just as much as I envy others. This is fairly normal I think.
I worked 8 days a week for a few years trying to support more than myself. I was exhausted as you can imagine. I didn't take days off. I worked holidays. I often went from one job in the day to one in the night. I wasn't getting ahead either. In fact I was going into debt. There were just too many things. The oil system in my partners car blew up (that's the technical term I think). The cat's eye for no reason swelled up and took months of expensive treatment to deal with. My back tooth broke and of course with no insurance the first dentist did such a bad job that I had to have a root canal (that I got in Mexico) and a new tooth built in (here in the States). I was in pain for years with one tooth. I've had 4 crowns and had the pleasure of paying for all of them out of pocket. Go ahead and look that up. The last one was gold... These are the over $2000 a pop things. Then the medium things like new brakes cause mine went out on the freeway (terrifying and costly) $500... I can't even begin to list the little things that my literal blood, sweat, and tears went to that seemed like slaps to the face with the occasional punch from the Universe.
Eventually at 30 I had to ask my parents for help for the first time. Humiliating.
The next year tax time rolled around. Come to find out that since I was working at some many different places but none of them enough hours 'to count' no one took taxes out. I owed... a lot. I ended up at the bottom of my shower sobbing. I had been single for a year. I was way in over my head in debt, the few dates I went on the person who took me out got shit faced drunk. I was working so hard to go backwards that I just didn't know what to do and while I was actively trying to change my life it seemed like nothing was changing.
In fact it felt like the Universe was trying to keep me smashed down laying in the tub with the shower on sobbing.
I simply couldn't catch a break. Every time I would look at my account and think ok, I've made it this month I could even put $50 in the savings. I could start a tiny buffer and then start repaying my parents something else would come up. Every. Single. Time.
Now I know that I'm not alone on this one. Many of you have struggled with money. It's the end of many a relationship. It's the root of all evil, but I'll tell you I envy those that seem to just put out their hand and money falls into it. Like I said, I'm working on the envy thing... still.
I started to stabilize. I thought I had a plan, and a solid income. I had worked out how to repay who, in what order and how much. I was still working 100 hour weeks but I was making money and starting to dig myself out of the hole. When all of a sudden half my income was gone. The studio I was teaching at wasn't making ends meet. In less than a month it was closed. I had just kicked off Clean Dinners. I was hoping it would have time to build up, I was opening my Catalyst Coaching biz but I was just starting out. Nothing was making money yet, in fact the businesses were at the costing me money stage. I was back in the shower.
With that I will end my Money Lemon cause it just leads to a ton of swearing.

This may be painful for many of you. Read with caution.
I'm about to give you a ton of statistics on violence and sexual assault of women. This is so that you can understand that the conversations I have with women are not at all unusual. Well, the fact the I have the honor to hear these stories is unusual. Most women don't talk about this ever. The reason I'm blogging about this is that I was very recently in a conversation about this and I want to share it with you. So here are the facts to start:
1 out of 3 women around the world has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. -This is on every site about violence against women.One in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime.
(The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and The National Institute of Justice, Extent, Nature, and Consequences of Intimate Partner Violence, July 2000. The Commonwealth Fund, Health Concerns Across a Woman’s Lifespan: 1998 Survey of Women’s Health, 1999)Nearly three out of four (74%) of Americans personally know someone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence.
30% of Americans say they know a woman who has been physically abused by her husband or boyfriend in the past year
(Allstate Foundation National Poll on Domestic Violence, 2006. Lieberman Research Inc., Tracking Survey conducted for The Advertising Council and the Family Violence Prevention Fund, July – October 1996)From a HuffPo article 50 Facts About Domestic Violence
:I've added the original websites these statistics are taken from. So you can easily see the source.

Some Stats about Sexual Assault:1 out of every 6 American women
has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed rape; 2.8% attempted rape). -National Institute of Justice & Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Prevalence, Incidence and Consequences of Violence Against Women Survey. 1998.1 in 3 American
women will be sexually abused during their lifetime. (George Mason University, Worldwide Sexual Assault Statistics, 2005)1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men
will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18. (Finkelhor et al., 1990)
Number of members of Congress who have gone through an educational training program on health, economics, violence, and gender norms: 0This I just threw in because Congress keeps on insisting on regulating women's bodies but have 0 knowledge.Also keep in mind these numbers are based off of reported assault...
A recent conversation
I was speaking to a dear friend recently and she mentioned how during one of her favorite practices (think meditation, yoga, church going) a memory was brought up. She had been going to her practice for years and it was something she did on an almost daily basis. But one day while she was practicing a memory of her ex-husband and his abuse came up. She thought she had forgotten it, it was years and years ago. She was so thrown off that she could barely concentrate for the rest of the practice.
We were talking later that day and she told me what had happened. She thought she would have to quit. She couldn't break the correlation now of her practice and that memory. Her body was visibly smaller. Her head tucked down between her shoulders and arms crossed. Tears in the corner of her eyes. Now this is a strong woman who raised two children on her own. It's long enough ago that her children have children so this isn't something that happened last week or a few years ago. She thought that she was over it. That the divorce and time had made it go away.
I hated that this memory could have so much impact on her life. That a memory from so long ago could take away the one piece of sanity in your day. It killed me to see her so hurt, and not only hurt from the memory but hurt that she was going to give up something she loved because now it was to painful for her. This is also why I feel the need to share this. Women need to know they aren't alone.
We spoke for an hour. I asked her a few questions and I'd like to ask them to you as well, I'm going to assume that everyone has a past trauma. I can honestly say that I don't know one single woman that hasn't been abused. My friend upon hearing that was speechless. She had no idea how prevalent abuse is in this society. Hence I gave you the above stats.
What past trauma affects your life? Your romantic life or otherwise.
In what ways does it affect you and/or your loved ones?
How much control are you will to let this past person/event continue to have over your current life?
What are you avoiding that brings you joy? or What haven't you tried due to fear?
Do you know that you can handle it?
Do you know that you are in fact strong enough to work thru it?
Are you ready to let go of the past and live in your present?
My friend was ready. She agreed that since this memory came up during her practice, that she loved so much that she would use that very practice to let it go. We spoke of meditation and how one of the meditations we both have used would be a perfect place to start. She was at her practice the next morning. When I saw her she gave me a big hug and big smile. I know that instead of burying the memory she will truly release the pain this time.
Find a support system. Don't do it alone. There are always people out there to help. There are support groups everywhere, find one in your area. I would give you links but for every kind of abuse and in every part of the world there is a different group. Find the one that fits for you. It doesn't even have to be in person, if you need to start with an online group.
You can always join a group of women, it can be a support group or a knitting group, or a yoga studio, or a meditation studio, or a women n wine group, or a hiking club. Anything you're interested in. Find a group of people who share your interests. Just having a safe place that you can be yourself is a huge step in the right direction.
Life hurls lemons at my head
I really don't like to talk about me. I'm an introvert. From my Myer-Briggs Personality
test: "You have distinctive preference of Introversion over Extraversion.
In fact I often have to remind myself to connect with other people, to go see friends. Weeks can go by where the most interaction I have is at the coffee shop. Which I started going to because I realized I needed to go out and meet people!
I'm pretty smart so when I'm in conversation with people I easily deflect and redirect the conversation about the other person(s). This is a reason I love to coach. I can listen and get in to you, how you think and work. I can offer up information about me when I know this will help my client. Say you're my client, you're working over 60 hours a week, you're feeling stressed out, you're single and frustrated with no time to date, and you feel isolated except for work 'friends' and drinking buddies. I'm going to tell you that I have been in your chair. I'm going to tell you what my life looked like at that time for me. Then I'm going to tell you that my life no longer looks like that, and that yours doesn't have to either.
That's just a little insight about where I'm coming from. I don't make friends easily, not because I can't but because I don't like having a large group of friends. I don't like my phone going off constantly about who did what, and what she was wearing when she did it. I would rather have a nice cup of tea or a beautiful craft beer at home with a good book. I would rather have a small group of trusted individuals over for a dinner party. I know how that sounds. I know that's why I don't have a ton of friends. I have come to terms with that. I would rather be me and be happy than feel like I've spent my time wasting it.
I'm telling you all this to set you up for why I feel as if lemons are being chucked at my head. When I decided to change my life I was a bartender. I had been a bartender in NYC for 10 years. I have no complaints. I was able to quit my job every year and buy a one way ticket to a different country. I got to go to some amazing places. I could come back, find a new job, sometimes pick up at the same one and start over. I moved to San Diego for a ton of reasons. None of them really important other than it was time for a change.
I love San Diego, it's a beautiful town with out a lot of year round bartending jobs. So I eventually moved to Los Angeles.
I bartended here in LA for a few years. I wasn't able to find a place I could stick, most of the jobs I could get were on the other side of town or places that were brand new and most of those fail let alone make any money. So at the poking and prodding of my partner and my bestie I started teaching Ballet Barre fitness classes. They were awesome but not a full time job. So I did that and worked at a restaurant.
I was beginning to lose the few friends I had made simply because I was no longer bartending and keeping night owl hours. I was switching over to mornings. I'm not really a morning person but coming from NYC where it's winter 10 months out of the year the sun is incredible in LA. I really don't mind getting up to the sun shining. However I couldn't go out drinking until all hours anymore. My friends didn't seem to be interested in getting up before their 4pm shift to go for a hike. I started making different friends.
At this point my best friend was bartending at a dive that went all night so I didn't really see her much, my partner and I were in the long process of breaking up. I was in desperate need of a friend. Any friend. So I made a few, sorta. No one that was really a friend to me in the way that I was a friend to them. You've all had those people in your lives that take consistently swearing that they will 'like totally' be there for you but end up drunk/fighting with boyfriend/hooking up with random/didn't pay the phone bill/you get the idea. I can honestly say that I still wish I could make friends with someone who gets up for the day, likes to hike in the sun, and doesn't feel the need to drink (or smoke it is Cali after all) every night. Between bartending for 10 years in the city that never sleeps and dating an alcoholic for 3 years I have a distaste for altered states that I don't think I will ever get over. Obviously I have nothing against drinking, I love well crafted booze. I would love to home brew some day, kombucha in one jar, beer in the other jars... lol. But there is a difference between a glass of something exquisite and drinking.
So I have decided to honor my body and mind I need to make some changes. To rise early and take Tai Chi in the park, to hike in the sun, to eat whole clean foods, and to teach others how to live their lives to honor themselves. This is my calling, Health Coaching and cooking for the world. I came from so far away that I don't know anyone at this party. That's ok. But it is the first Lemon to the face.
Let's end part one here.
Part 2 next week.
I'm trying an experiment. I'm taking Bee Pollen.
I have allergies now. Since I moved to the west coast I've had allergies. This year seems to be particularly bad. Since I really hate taking pain-killers and anti-histamines I've decided to take a holistic approach. Of course.
First of all Bee pollen is what young bees eat!
It's 40% protein, free amino acids which are ready to be used immediately. No need to break the proteins apart and reassemble.
If you're vegan this is really important. If you're cutting back on your animal products this is a great way to get a lot of protein.
Bee pollen is one of the highest sources of vitamins especially with B-complex vitamins, and folic acid. This helps boost your energy!
Bee pollen is also a remedy for allergies. It's the idea of boosting the immune system with the very thing that's attacking it. This is a gamble. It can make it worse, or better. Start slowly. I started day one with just a pinch. The next day I had a bigger pinch, and that night I had a little pinch. The next day I had a big pinch in the morning and again at night. So I'm slowly increasing. In this amount of time I have also seen my allergies decrease. Everyday it's a little better.
This is a win! I'm really digging it, I'm looking forward to seeing what I'm going to feel like after I'm taking a spoonful a day! Bee pollen is an anti-inflammatory for the lungs so I'm guessing that's what helping my breathing become easier.
Bee pollen also has other benefits:
It's used for weight loss by helping the body to normalize the chemical balance in the body.
It's also an energy and stamina booster.
The immune system boost that bee pollen gives directly effects digestion. When the immune system is enhanced the digestive flora is also enhanced. This aids your digestion which helps your body get all the good stuff from your food! This all makes your skin start to glow!
Bee pollen is boosted even further when you eat it with fruit!
With in the first week of taking this, even in the tiny doses my allergies started to clear up. The second week I was up to a spoonful in my smoothies and I was feeling like a rock star! I'm a confirmed believer.
As Wave's hair begins to thin one of our friends came to make the transition a little less obvious. Siobhan is a hair styles and delight.
As soon as she heard that Wave had been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma she sent me an email that said she would love to volunteer her skills.
We all know that feeling like we look good helps us feel good!
That's true in any set of circumstances. So while it was incredible to help Wave disguise the thinning hair it was also amazing to help her feel good!
A special thanks to Siobhan for not only donating her time and talent but for coming to Wave so she wouldn't have to travel!
P.S. A few days after this Siobhan can and dyed Waves hair purple! I'll try and get a good picture for you guys :)
"EB" Cellular Cleanse Therapy
Today I participated in an experiment. It was crazy awesome!
You may believe in this, you may not. There is a broad spectrum of belief from the people who will buy anything to the people who won't buy anything. I believe that if you believe it doesn't really matter what you buy!
So aside from that here are some things about EB Cellular Cleanse Therapy:
- "straightforward treatment that involves immersing one's feet into a bowl filled with water in order to detoxify the body. While immersing your feet in the water, a series of timed positive and negative ions that the system emits, invigorates, re- conditions and synchronizes the body's natural ionic flow." -http://www.newcelldetox.com/ (sell the machines)
- "EB Cellular Cleanse Therapy- is based on bioenergetics technology, creating an energy field similar to the energy produced by the human body. This field stimulates cellular energy and enhances the body's ability to internally cleanse itself naturally, at an increased rate, restoring and normalizing the body's correct pH balance and energy levels." -http://healthysolutions101.com/services/modalities
- HOW DOES MY BODY DETOXIFY IN THE WATER?
This detoxification occurs through the skin, which is the second largest detoxifying system in the body after the lungs.
An energized and balanced body will naturally be able to detoxify at a higher rate, thereby protecting itself from further toxins, pollutants, and viruses.
WHY DOES THE WATER COLOR CHANGE?
Due to the interaction of the toxins from the body along with the metals from the array when creating an ionic field within the water bath.
The water will change color regardless of whether there is a person in the water or not, due to the metallurgic reaction of the array and the polarization of the solids and minerals in the water. However, there will normally be two-three times the cellular debris within the water when the treatment is combined with a patient.
WHY DOES THE WATER COLOR VARY FROM TREATMENT TO TREATMENT?
Variations occur due to each individual’s energy state and toxicity levels as toxins in the body are re-ionized at the molecular level and react with the metals of the array. -http://carneswellness.com/index.php/services/foot-bath-detox
So my Chiropractor Dr. Kuo (http://www.healthsourcepasadena.com/) is awesome. He's fixing my wrist, which is a big reason this is even being typed by me. He's a holistic practitioner in that he talkes about whole foods, supplements and physical therapy to reinforce his work. This was a big reason I picked him.
So today I go in for my appointment and he's telling me that the massage therapist is getting the EB out. He told me about it and I said I'd heard of it but never seen one in person. I've seen the pictures online, I have a friend who tried it and loved it but I had no personal experience.
He asked me if I would mind trying it. As an experiment, since I eat clean, to see what the water would look like after my first session. Typically after the first treatment the water is black.
So I put my feet in and slowly the water started to get a little white foam at the top, that they told me is my lymphatic system. I'm not surprised as stress creates all kinds of toxins in the lymphatic system and I've certainly been stressed out in the last couple months. Then the water started to get little blue flakes, the kidneys. Funny enough in Tai Chi that morning I was thinking my back right over my kidneys was sore. Then less but still visiable were the green flakes, gall bladder. I suppose that goes right along with kidneys. Nothing else happened for a while, everyone was shocked that there wasn't really anything in the water, then a little over halfway thru the water turned super orange. That apparently is the joints detoxing. Now I was a little surprised it didn't happen sooner, with my wrist healing from an intense injury, a recent fall from my skateboard (If you drive, please don't drive in the bike lane!!!) my neck and hips being realigned from old past injuries... you get the idea. Dancing from the age of 3 has done a number on my joints. Finally the little black flecks as the heavy metals detoxed appeared. Again I'm not shocked. I eat a ton of sardines, anchovies and recently my friend Wave (who was diagnosed with cancer) has been craving salmon. I'm not one to argue and we've been getting the best source we can so I'm eating much more fish than I generally do. I've upped my chlorella intake but I suppose not by enough!
Immediately after my wrist felt lighter, more in balance with my healthy wrist. My body felt slightly lighter, or looser... it's hard to explain. Like there was more space between my cells! LOL!
I have to admit it was a great feeling, placebo or not.
Have you ever tried anything like this? If so what did you try? What was it like? If not are you hesitating for a reason?
The water after, the orange from my joints, and the black flecks on top-heavy metals!
My bright orange "rock" tape holding my wrist in place. But hey look what I can do with my fingers now!
