And, yes, I do occasionally bust out a headstand while on the job.I love that my job doesn’t feel anything like a job.I had a mop of curly dark hair in those days and was wearing a white shirt, black jeans and a thin black tie that day (bear with me, the description is important).‘My Sharona’ had recently been released and, I’m not sure anyone else was interested or even noticed my sartorial reference to one of The Knack’s guitarists, but Simon did and I remember him striking up a conversation about what a brilliant blast of pop exuberance My Sharona was.Yu Mee Chung is the brains and the beauty behind Passport to Prana, a unique yoga program that offers people the freedom to try their city’s best yoga studios by eliminating the cost barrier that comes with yoga in a big city.
For Simon being polysyllabic (just the kind of word he loved to rip from his top pocket) came entirely naturally and he was just as likely to explain how a song’s “contrapuntal motion” motored it along as slap down a quote from Charles Bukowski to illustrate a point.

Oddly enough in this case I knew the answer, because my grandfather once told me it.
There was a minimum distance you had to travel to qualify as a bona-fide traveller, so every Sunday each half of the island got up and went en-masse to the other half, swapping sides, so as to ensure that they all passed the test and could legally buy a drink.
