The week gone by — Feb. 9

Have you ever done yoga naked? Would you want to?

Don’t actually answer those — seriously, I don’t want to hear it — but you can apparently take naked yoga classes in New York City (and Boston and Seattle).

Or if that’s not your speed — and seriously, I don’t want to know — you can take an exercise class in a 50-degree studio, cycle on an underwater bike or get zapped while you work out.

I’m not sure what troubles me more … that somebody thought these were good ideas and there was a market for them, or that they may have been right.

STUFF I WROTE THIS WEEK

How to be the best guest at the worst party — Follow this advice, and I guarantee you’ll be a hero.

THIS WEEK’S BLAST FROM THE PAST

Which is worse? You decide! — Two examples of unbridled stupidity, but there can only be one winner.

STUFF I READ THIS WEEK

A new low for the human race. (Millennial Life Crisis) — Just when you think people have exhausted the ways they can suck …

Bloody knees! (My Forty Something Life) — No matter the shape you’re in, Father Time sometimes feels the need to remind you that he’s undefeated.

High-Functioning Depression (Buffalo Sauce Everywhere) — “Depression can be sneaky. It can creep up on you, especially when you haven’t been deep in the throes of it for a while and you’re so busy that you don’t really notice it.”

Sarcastic Children and Their Misconceptions About ……… Everything. (The Huntress 915) — Kids do some weird stuff.

Where Am I Supposed To Eat Now? (The Captain’s Speech) — When a restaurant is more than just a restaurant.

Becky Yells About Sports: Alex Cora (Strikeouts + Sprinkles) — Becky believes a great injustice has been done.

My love for New York City is no secret, but when I read something like this, I can only shake my head and think this must be the most New York City story ever.

“The Best American Sports Writing” is the first book I read after Christmas every year, so this news is a scandal on top of an outrage.

My tip was to make sure both people get to do stuff they want to do.

TWEETS I LIKED

You’ve never had this thought, but you’re having it now.

If New England gets a blizzard this week (I don’t think we’re supposed to), it’s her fault, and she knows it.

Everyone I grew up with knew this.

Seconded.

I am always here for quality Reggie content.

It is a ride, but it’s a ride worth taking.

Snow stopped being fun when it stopped meaning no school.

I thought pairs of lift tickets came with marriage licenses in Colorado, but apparently, I was wrong.

For example, this entire section of my blog.

Odds that the cat didn’t care one bit?

A @#$&ing good thread.

Yes, yes it is.
