Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, Did you know that I would do anything for love, but I won't do yoga? What I mean to say is, I would run to hell and back, sit through a Tyler Perry marathon and, shoot, I would even eat at Arby's. But I refuse to do even one hour of yoga. Anything happening this weekend that doesn't involve stretchy pants? -Meatloaf---

Meatloaf, I understand where you're coming from, but you should give yoga another shot. I used to do anything for love except eat asparagus, but now I do. It's delicious when grilled. Anyway, here's what's going down this weekend:
