French word of the day: empiler

Def: To stack

As in, “Empilez tes genoux”—stack your knees.

It was a good yoga class today. Well, except that we listened to Michael Jackson the whole time. I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t gotten swept away by MJ mania since he died. But our yoga drill sergeant worked us a little harder than usual and it felt great. “C’mon! If you’re going to try, try! We don’t have all day, this class is only an hour.”

  1. not the only MJ mania person! Was only a fan of his first cd (pre-Thriller!) 'Off the Wall'. Adored the Jackson 5.

    Too many bad memories of Thriller etc (Spanish holidays ruined by huge screens in bars) and as I live close to the O2 I was convinced he would never perform there - no idea why!
